Actor explains why it was so daunting coming on the set with Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga and what it's like to earn his first Academy Award nod.
Sam Elliott shares memories from "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," "Road House," "Tombstone," "The Big Lebowski," "Hulk," and "A Star Is Born."
The list of 2019 Oscar nominations contained many surprises, including passing over Bradley Cooper as Best Director for "A Star Is Born," and no mention at all of "Crazy Rich Asians."
UPDATED with video: After two wins at the Critics' Choice Awards on Sunday - a co-win for Best Actress, and Best Song in A Star is Born - Lady Gaga told press backstage she was "speechless" because it was her "greatest dream to be an actor." She once gave up acting, "but here I am now with Glenn Close," she said, noting her co-winner in the category. "She's legendary." Gaga also said in her remarks backstage at the show (watch them above) that she plans to do a lot more…
Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Favourite,” Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma” and Bradley Cooper’s “A Star Is Born” are among the top films of 2018 as selected by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), which announced its nominations on Wednesday morning in London. Those films will compete with “Green Book” and “BlacKkKlansman” in the Best Film category at the EE British Academy Film Awards, which will take place on Feb. 10 at the Royal Albert Hall in London. “The Favourite” easily led all films in nominations with 12, five more than runners-up “Roma,” “A Star Is Born,” “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “First Man,” which each received seven. “Vice” received six nominations, “BlacKkKlansman” five, and “Green Book” and “Cold War” four each.

The BAFTA acting categories feature many of the same face-offs expected to take place at the Oscars: Glenn Close (“The Wife”), Lady Gaga (“A Star Is Born”), Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”), Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) were nominated in leading actress, for instance, alongside Viola Davis for “Widows.” Alfonso Cuarón received six separate nominations for “Roma,” putting him in line to receive statuettes for Best Film, Best Film Not in the English Language, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography and Best Editing. Bradley Cooper received five separate nominations for “A Star Is Born,” in the categories of Best Film, Best Leading Actor, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Music. Also Read: SAG Awards Nominations Are Great News for 'A Star Is Born,' But Not for 'The Favourite' The lead actor race features Cooper for “A Star Is Born,” Viggo Mortensen for “Green Book,” Steve Coogan for “Stan & Ollie” and two Golden Globe winners, Christian Bale for “Vice” and Rami Malek for “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Supporting nominees include Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz for “The Favourite,” Amy Adams and Sam Rockwell for “Vice,” Mahershala Ali for “Green Book,” Adam Driver for “BlacKkKlansman” and Richard E. Grant for “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” “Black Panther” only received a single nomination, for visual effects. “If Beale Street Could Talk” received two, for music and adapted screenplay. Since the Oscars expanded the number of Best Picture nominees in 2009, 41 of the 45 BAFTA Best Film nominees have gone on to receive Oscar nominations, and five of the nine winners have also won the Oscar for Best Picture. Last year, all five BAFTA best-film nominees also became Oscar Best Picture nominees, as did four of the five nominees in each of the four acting categories. The eventual Oscar winner, “The Shape of Water,” received more BAFTA nominations than any other film, but “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” won the top prize in the London ceremony.

When you see as many movies in a year as Yahoo Entertainment does, you start to see patterns emerging between different films. And 2018 was a prolific year for coincidence-spotting; here are 11 of the unexpected similarities we noticed between some of the year's biggest movies.
You’d think that the best and worst trailers of 2018 would correspond with the best and worst films. And in several cases, they do! But sometimes a trailer can obscure what’s unique about a film (like Mission: Impossible), or make a middling sequel (like Creed II) seem truly great. The year’s best one, for A Star Is Born, had audiences literally humming the trailer. And a few of these trailers tease films that won’t be released until 2019. Read our picks for the best and worst previews of the year, and leave your additions in the comments. BEST: Pokémon: Detective Pikachu (Nov. 12)
The film is rated M in New Zealand — “unrestricted, suitable for 16 years and over” — similar to its classification in Australia.
