Oscars 2017: On the eve of the nominations, our predictions for the top categories

This awards season marks a moment for small films with big ideas. From the musical wonder created by Damien Chazelle in La La Land to the profound specificity found in Barry Jenkins’ stunning Moonlight to the ache of Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea, the three movies likely to nab the most Oscar accolades come Tuesday morning all grab hold of the heartstrings and don’t let go. They also all happen to be independently financed works distributed without the help of the major studios. In fact, of the likely Best Picture nominees, Denis Villeneuve’s meditative sci-fi film Arrival and Denzel Washington’s domestic tragedy Fences are the only ones from a major studio (and the same one to boot, Paramount). That is, unless 20th Century Fox scores a nomination for its inspiring period drama, Hidden Figures.

This year,  even the more conventionally masculine films — like the Western Hell or High Water, Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge, and Washington’s Fences — are all highly emotive. And then there is Lion, Harvey Weinstein’s best shot at a Best Picture slot and a film that finds its power in sentiment.

Here are our Best Picture picks:

Hacksaw Ridge
Hell or High Water
Hidden Figures
La La Land
Manchester By the Sea

Best Director

Wunderkinds Chazelle and Jenkins each re-imagined personal narratives in ambitiously creative ways, and New York playwright Lonergan never flinched from the paralyzing guilt that can haunt survivors of a tragedy. Who fills out the last two slots? French-Canadian filmmaker Villeneuve (Arrival) and Scottish director David Mackenzie (Hell or High Water) are the best bets for the final two slots, likely edging out veterans such as Martin Scorsese (Silence), Clint Eastwood (Sully), and Mel Gibson (Hacksaw Ridge). Our predictions:

Barry Jenkins, Moonlight
Damien Chazelle, La La Land
David Mackenzie, Hell or High Water
Denis Villeneuve, Arrival
Kenneth Lonergan, Manchester by the Sea

Best Actress

With Natalie Portman’s layered study of Jacqueline Kennedy in Jackie and Emma Stone’s vulnerable turn as an actress trying to make it by her own rules in La La Land, there are too many qualified candidates for the number of slots. Stone and Portman are locks. Academy members might find it hard to resist Meryl Streep, especially after her memorable Golden Globes speech, even though her light touch in Florence Foster Jenkins isn’t one of her best roles. Still, she may edge out Isabelle Huppert’s ferocious performance in the French film Elle and possibly Ruth Negga, the Ethiopian-Irish actress whose confident portrayal of Mildred Loving in Loving was a standout. There will likely be room for Amy Adams’ linguist from Arrival, but what about Annette Bening’s turn as an unconventional mother in Mike Mills’ 20th Century Women or Emily Blunt in The Girl on the Train? Her role has already sparked love from SAG and BAFTA. This is one year the Academy would benefit from expanding their field of nominees. Here’s how we think the category will work out:

Amy Adams, Arrival
Annette Bening, 20th Century Women
Emma Stone, La La Land
Isabelle Huppert, Elle
Natalie Portman, Jackie

Best Actor

Despite weathering headlines about his past conduct, including accusations of sexual harassment, Casey Affleck looks bound to land an Oscar nomination for Manchester by the Sea. Joining him will be Ryan Gosling for La La Land, Washington for Fences, and maybe Andrew Garfield for Hacksaw Ridge. Viggo Mortensen is likely to carve out that last slot after his SAG Awards nomination, leaving Tom Hanks’ performance in Sully out in the cold, along with Garfield’s turn in Silence. Our picks:

Andrew Garfield, Hacksaw RidgeCasey Affleck, Manchester by the SeaDenzel Washington, FencesRyan Gosling, La La LandViggo Mortensen, Captain Fantastic

Best Supporting Actress

Every year, there is one race that’s all sewn up before the nominations are even announced. This year that sure thing is Viola Davis for her role as anguished housewife Rose in Fences. She already won the Tony for the same role in the play’s 2010 Broadway revival, and here she takes it deeper and to even greater effect. Manchester’s Michelle Williams has the only upset shot. Here’s our take:
Michelle Williams, Manchester by the SeaNaomie Harris, MoonlightNicole Kidman, LionOctavia Spencer, Hidden FiguresViola Davis, Fences

Best Supporting Actor

Mahershala Ali isn’t around for long in Moonlight, but his influence on the main character is profound and long-lasting. His biggest competition comes from newcomer Lucas Hedges for his role as the teenager grieving the death of his father in Manchester. The kid’s the real deal, but he may have to wait his turn. Others that could sneak in include Hugh Grant in Florence Foster Jenkins and perhaps Ben Foster in Hell or High Water. Here is where we think it will end up:

Dev Patel, LionJeff Bridges, Hell or High WaterLucas Hedges, Manchester by the SeaMahershala Ali, MoonlightMichael Shannon, Nocturnal Animals

¿Actividad paranormal? Desaparece como espanto para que bebé no se despierte

Madre sudafricana realiza maniobra extrema para que su hijo duerma. Vea, además: novia bella, Super Mario real y batalla contra el sueño.

Una mujer se arrastra por el suelo junto a la cuna en la que duerme un bebé. La cámara de monitoreo de la habitación capta el extraño comportamiento. Así comienza el video que ha logrado más de siete millones de reproducciones en Facebook en la última semana.

Su protagonista es la madre sudafricana Caryn Chelin Morris, que pareciera ser víctima de una actividad paranormal. Pero no.

En realidad es una mujer desesperada que recurre a esta maniobra extrema y escurridiza para evitar que su bebé se despierte.

Y es que sólo quienes han sido padres saben lo que es soportar noches eternas de insomnio por cuenta del llanto de sus pequeños hijos.

Con lo que no contaba Caryn es que la cámara la captaría y que Tyrone, su esposo, subiría el video a Facebook.

“Lo mejor de tener cámaras en tu casa es ver a tu esposa tratando de salir de la habitación después de acostar a su bebé. Algunas veces tienes que tomar la iniciativa para poder salir. ¡El Ejército me está llamando para que tú les hagas el entrenamiento del arrastre inverso del leopardo!”, escribió Tyrone Morris.

¡Qué duro el oficio de ser papás!

Batalla perdida contra el sueño

¿Ha sido víctima de un ataque de sueño? Es hora, de que vea uno que dejó en el suelo a una adorable criatura.

Una cachorrita la perdió y de qué manera. De un golpe, despertó a la realidad. Su dueña no tuvo compasión y la grabó en este penoso momento. ¡Más de veintiséis mil reutits tiene ya el video e igual número de suspiros!

Watch Troye Sivan's Powerful 'Heaven' Music Video

This new music video from Troye Sivan is very poignant.

The 21-year-old crooner just dropped the visuals for “Heaven” and it features footage of historic LGBT moments throughout history.

“we have always been here. we will always be here,” Troye said in a statement. “this video is dedicated to all who’ve come before me and fought for our cause and those who now continue the fight. in dark and light times, let’s love forever. love, troye”

It’s likely not a coincidence that he released the video just one day ahead of Donald Trump‘s inauguration.

LEGOLAND Florida opens Ninjago World with innovative interactive attraction

LEGOLAND Florida piped up over the weekend and said, “hey, don’t forget about us. We’re themepark innovators too.” The new LEGO Ninjago adventure will let kids and their families ‘become the ninja’ on a groundbreaking interactive ride based on the popular LEGO building sets and TV show.
Inside the new land are several hands-on, outdoor activities where kids can sharpen their ninja skills before the ultimate showdown on Ninjago the ride. The “4D’ attraction includes 3D computer animation, and environmental effects like heat, fog, and strobe lighting. The ride vehicles themselves feature interactive game-play technology never seen outside a LEGOLAND theme park.

Guests can also find large LEGO models of the LEGO Ninjago heroes Kai, Jay, Cole, Zane, Lloyd, Nya and Master Wu including meet and greet opportunities with Kai and Nya. There’s shopping at Wu’s Warehouse which will have themed Ninjago building sets, apparel, costumes, books and more.

On our visit we also loved the opportunities to build models out of LEGO bricks, do some strength and balance testing in the LEGO Ninjago world land itself. In fact, some of the skills you pick up in the land and the queue are important to remember when you’re in the ride. Kinda sneaking like that.

If you haven’t been to LEGOLAND Florida recently you may have missed some of their recent expansions including a new hotel, new 4D movie, and a build-a-boat area.
Visit anytime, but don’t miss the upcoming special event weekends:
  • LEGO Batman movie days (March 4-5 & 11-12)
  • LEGO Star Wars Days (May 6-7 & 13-14)
  • LEGOLAND Knight Lights (select dates in July)
As always all events are full-day experiences included with your park admission. That’s part of what makes LEGOLAND Florida so great.

Hallmark Channel News: On the Anniversary of its Final Episode, Relive ONE LIFE TO LIVE's Classic Moments!

On Jan. 13, 2012, ONE LIFE TO LIVE aired its last episode on ABC. Although OLTL and ALL MY CHILDREN were both canceled at the same time, OLTL aired its last show nearly four months after AMC gave its final bow.

OLTL made its debut on July 15, 1968, created by the late daytime legend Agnes Nixon. In the beginning, the soap focused around the Lord family, especially Viki Lord, played by Emmy winner Erika Slezak. But over the decades expanded its scope to encompass all the diverse citizens of Llanview.

After AMC moved production to California in 2009, OLTL remained the last daytime soap still filmed in New York City. But after nearly 43 years on the air, ABC announced OLTL’s cancelation on April 14, 2011. Prospect Park purchased the rights and broadcast an online relaunch of OLTL starting on April 29, 2013 via iTunes and Hulu, but it was sadly short-lived.

Celebrate the glory days of this beloved daytime institution in our special flashback gallery below!

Lily Collins Wears a Rose-Covered Dress to the Golden Globes 2017

Starting off award season right.

Lily Collins is the modern-day Audrey Hepburn. The 27-year-old brunette knows how to make a little black dress look special, knows her way around a killer topknot, and rocks mini, midi, and maxi silhouettes with ease. On the red carpet at the 2017 Golden Globes, she chose a princess-inspired pink gown with gorgeous rose appliqués by Zuhair Murad. Needless to say she looks more stunning than ever. 
Lily’s gown of choice gave her a true fairytale moment as she stepped onto the carpet. Embellished in pink, this tulle confection nipped in at the waist and boasted short, cap sleeves and a full-skirted silhouette.

Lily teased her beautiful pastel gown options as well as “the final zip” before stepping onto the red carpet. Suffice it to say, we were on the edge of our seats until we caught a glimpse of the dress in full glamour.

Whether she’s wearing an army green utility jacket and jeans, or slipping into a ball gown, Lily never fails to carry herself with sophisticated ease and elegance. We’re surely going to be talking about tonight’s look for a long time to come and can’t wait to see what’s next for the Hollywood starlet.
