Oscar 2018 Winner Predictions: Actress

Is Frances McDormand's Mildred in Martin McDonagh's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, a film about a woman's vigilante efforts to get justice for her murdered daughter by publicly shaming the town's police for failing to sufficiently investigate the crime, made of Teflon? Case in point: After throwing Molotov cocktails into the town's police station, setting it ablaze, the only reprimand she receives after being provided with the flimsiest of alibis is the side-eye of the town's temporary police chief.

Exclusive: Go Behind the Scenes of the I, Tonya Soundtrack

Nominated for three Golden Globes, including best picture in the musical or comedy category, I, Tonya tells the darkly comedic tale of American figure skater Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie, nominated for her performance) and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. In a Slant exclusive, director Craig Gillespie, composer Peter Nashel, and music supervisor Susan Jacobs discuss the importance music played in capturing this American underdog story in a new behind-the-scenes featurette. At one point, they reveal how their requests for music rights were initially met with resistance. “[Artists] didn’t want their music used in a Tonya Harding film,” Jacobs says, adding that she was able to change their minds by convincing them to actually watch the film.

Continuing to show a late-career hunger for genre experimentation, Martin Scorsese follows his highly-decorated 3D fantasy Hugo with The Wolf of Wall Street, a brash, rise-and-fall stock-market satire that seems to boast more comedy than the filmmaker’s typical hard-hitting drama. Marking Scorsese’s fifth collaboration with leading man Leonardo DiCaprio (who, with this and The Great Gatsby, is officially cinema’s devil-may-care party-thrower of 2013), the new film is based on the memoir of Jordan Belfort, an infamous money launderer whose Wall Street wheeling and dealings also inspired 2000’s Boiler Room. Hard, fast, and just about out of control, this debut trailer suggests Scorsese is on an energetic high, nervy and playful and ready to unleash something topical and evocative (what, no Michael Douglas cameo?). Opening November 15, The Wolf of Wall Street co-stars Kyle Chandler, Jean Dujardin, Jon Favreau, Rob Reiner, Pan Am head-turner Margot Robbie, and also Jonah Hill and Matthew McConaughey. Oscar watchers should probably add the latter two gents to their Supporting Actor shortlists, and the film is poised to contend in other categories too. Get a load of Marty and Leo’s latest after the jump.
