How often do the four SAG champs go on to win Oscars?

How often do the four SAG champs go on to win Oscars?
With their wins at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour”), Frances McDormand (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards”) and Allison Janney (“I, Tonya”) continue their march toward becoming the first foursome to sweep the Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice, SAG, BAFTA and Oscar. Their SAG victories are the most important ones of the three groups so far, as the SAGs have a fantastic correlation with the Oscars; SAG has only missed five times in Best Actor, six times in Best Actress, nine times in Best Supporting Actor and seven times in Best Supporting Actress. But despite so much overlap between the individual races, SAG does not go 4-for-4 with Oscar in one season as often as you might think.

Over its 23-year history, SAG has only had a direct match in all four Oscar acting races six times, most recently three years ago. SAG typically goes 3-for-4 with Oscar,

Tomb Raider

“At some point we have to face up to who we are and who we’re meant to be,” Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) is told in a new trailer for “Tomb Raider.” The bike courier is being urged to accept the fact that her father is gone. The adventurer went missing seven years ago and is presumed dead. Lara decides that she’s meant to be the one who finds answers, and goes in search of his last-known destination, a mysterious island that’s incredibly difficult to access.

“There was more to my life than business deals and boardrooms,” her father (Dominic West) reveals in a video message he left for her. He explains that it’s up to her to stop a global genocide. Turns out Lara is meant to be someone who saves the world.

How ‘Wonder’s’ Makeup Effects Artist Transformed Jacob Tremblay

Based on the New York Times best-seller, Lionsgate’s “Wonder” chronicles the story of Auggie Pullman, a boy born with facial differences who enters a mainstream elementary school for the first time. Jacob Tremblay — who blew audiences away in “Room” (2015) — stars as the 9-year-old with Treacher-Collins syndrome, which results in some bones and tissue in the face being undeveloped. Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson play his parents.

Special makeup effects artist Arjen Tuiten was tasked with transforming Tremblay into Pullman. At 37, Tuiten is well-known for having created the likes of Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent, the creatures in “Pan’s Labyrinth” and the characters in Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland.” David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of production company Mandeville Films approached Tuiten to do the special makeup effects two years before shooting began. They wanted him because the job was specific and complex.

Oscars flashback: Iraq invasion in 2003 almost cancelled 75th anniversary Oscars family album reunion of 59 acting winners [Watch]

The 75th anniversary ceremony for the Academy Awards almost didn’t happen as scheduled. When America led an invasion of Iraq that weekend, broadcast network ABC pleaded with producer Gil Cates and Academy president Frank Piersen to move the event back a week. The duo claimed it would be too expensive to make the switch and that the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood would be unavailable.

On March 23, 2003, the ceremony went live on ABC as scheduled, hosted by comedian, actor, and writer Steve Martin, with the Best Picture proclaimed to be “Chicago.” However, several presenters such as Cate Blanchett, Jim Carrey, and Will Smith cancelled their appearances. That day’s events also caused several past winners to bail out on appearing in the Oscars family album slated for late in the show. Similar to a segment five years early for the 70th anniversary show (read more on the link above), the

Lara Croft Defies Death in New ‘Tomb Raider’ Trailer
A new “Tomb Raider” trailer released Thursday offers a further look at Alicia Vikander’s Lara Croft and her dangerous adventure for answers about her father’s death.

Upon arrival at a mysterious island — his last-known location — she encounters a man, played by Walton Goggins, who says he was taken there by Croft’s father seven years ago. “Now I see the likeness, the intelligence, the recklessness,” he says in the trailer.

Croft also learns of Trinity, a dark organization that’s “looking to start a global genocide,” which her father tells her in a recording she must stop. A rendition of Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor” plays in the clip as Croft defies death to become the Tomb Raider.

Alicia Vikander Holds on For Dear Life in the New Tomb Raider Trailer

If you were worried about Alicia Vikander being able to fill Angelina Jolie's cargo pants in the Tomb Raider reboot, worry no more. In the new look at the 28-year-old Oscar winner as the titular raider of tombs, Lara Croft, Vikander seems to be holding her own as she dives off cliffs, dramatically slides under razor-sharp booby traps, and effortlessly completes other death-defying acts. While that might be the same song and dance we got with Jolie in the first two films, Lara's backstory is getting an update. The action film, which isn't due out until March 16, sees Lara as a 21-year-old, fiercely independent bike courier living in London on her own seven years after the disappearance of her eccentric adventurer father (Dominic West). She sets out to solve the mystery of his death, which involves a dangerous journey to a mythical tomb somewhere off the coast of Japan.

Jolie in “By the Sea”

The American Society of Cinematographers (Asc) will honor Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie with the Asc Board of Governors Award at this year’s Asc Awards for Outstanding Achievements, Variety reports.
