"I think a big reason that it was a huge flop in its day is that it was too far ahead of its time. It's dark inkiness is much more in tune with these dark times. Bradley Cooper has a big hill in front of him since this is without question Tyrone's Power's finest hour on film." -Joel6

"Del Toro directing Blanchett and Collette in the same movie? Count me in." -Pawel

Trivia for these composers
Erivo becomes the third person in history to be simultaneously nominated for acting and songwriting after Mary J Blige and Lady Gaga.The only person to have won both categories is Barbra Streisand though (in different years). Though Elton & Bernie have been composing together since the beginning of Elton's career, Elton's other Oscar nominated songs were co-written by Tim Rice. 13 of Newman's 22 nominations are in the Song category.The others are in score.Both of his wins are from the song category as well rather than score.
