Too early Oscar predictions

With the success of last year's "West Side Story", Steven Spielberg is back in Oscar contention this year for “The Fabelmans" based on his childhood in post-war Arizona, starring Michelle Williams, Seth Rogan and Paul Dano as various Spielberg family members.

The film also features the young actor Gabriel LaBelle who plays the fledgling filmmaker who grew up to be, well, Steven Spielberg. Look for a Thanksgiving holiday release this November.

Another November release, “She Said” follows two New York Times reporters investigating Hollywood movie mogul and sexual predator, Harvey Weinstein that helped launch the #MeToo movement -- and a nice, long prison term for Weinstein. While there's nothing Hollywood loves more than a scandal about Hollywood, add two knock-out performances by Carey Mulligan and Zoe Kazan.




For more light-hearted fare, Oscar-winning director Alejandro G. Iñárritu ("Revenant') will be back this year with a nostalgic comedy drama, “Bardo (or False Chronicle of a Handful of Truths)” (Netflix) which follows a renowned Mexican journalist's return to native country. Filmed entirely in Mexico City, this much buzzed-about Oscar contender is scheduled for release globally in theaters and on Netflix by the end of the year.

Another top film on movie critics' lists this year -- one that's already won the top prize at Cannes -- is "Triangle of Sadness", a satirical romp through the lives of the uber rich that turns to dark comedy, with a star turn by Woody Harrelson.



Also on the radar?

Keep a watch out for “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”, “Avatar: The Way of Water”, “Everything Everywhere All at Once”, "Elvis", "The Son", and “Women Talking" (starring a can't miss Frances McDormand) as possible contenders to round out the 2023 Top Ten Best Picture nods.

DID YOU KNOW? Oscar trivia & fun facts

worst oscars ever?
1989: worst Oscars ever.

• There's good reason that stars holding the Oscar are surprised by its sheer weight. Each 24-karat gold-plated Oscar award stands 13.5 inches tall and weighs around 8 1/2 lbs. or about the equivalent of a gallon of milk.

The worst Oscars performance of all time goes to unlucky aspiring actress Eileen Bowman who appeared as Snow White during the 1989 show. She was there to entertain stars such as Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, and Sigourney Weaver who sat in the audience, dumbstruck. (An awkward duet with actor Rob Lowe didn't help.) The following day, The New York Times declared that the performance earned "a permanent place in the annals of Oscar embarrassments."

• In 1974, actor David Niven appeared to introduce the Best Picture nominees when a streaker stormed the stage and ran behind him. The witty British actor quickly remarked, "The only laugh that man will ever get in his life is by stripping ... and showing his shortcomings.”

• Midnight Cowboy (1969) is the only X-rated film to ever win the Best Picture award.

• In 1940, The Los Angeles Times leaked the complete winners list the night before the ceremony. So Hollywood star Vivien Leigh, for example, arrived at the Oscars already aware that she had won Best Actress for "Gone with Wind" that year. Academy voting results have been a closely guarded secret ever since.
