Dedicated to gauging the validity of journalism, PolitiFact recently turned its attention to Oscars Best Picture nominees "Darkest Hour," "Dunkirk," and "The Post."
Fresh off film's Golden Globes nominations, we present a rare look at how filmmaker Christopher Nolan made his breathtaking WWII film, "Dunkirk."
Before he wrote the scores for movies including "Gladiator," "The Lion King," for which he won an Oscar, and most recently "Dunkirk," Hans Zimmer played the synthesizer for the Buggles. The Buggles' "Video Killed the Radio Star" happens to be the first video ever to play on MTV.
On the British talk show This Morning, pop star-turned-actor Harry Styles was asked about the difference between auditioning for Dunkirk director Christopher Nolan and auditioning for Simon Cowell. Styles auditioned for Cowell on the X Factor in 2010, which turned into a spot in the boy band One Direction. Cowell is known for being brash and brutally honest, but Styles said it was actually harder to audition for Nolan — mainly because he is the exact opposite of Cowell.
