Oscars: Every Best Actor Winner Throughout History

When it comes to the 90th Academy Awards, it all goes down for Australian audiences on Monday March 5.

"That's not what I want to do", he added. Oscar-winning horror movies are few and far between in the awards show's history, and a Get Out win would be a historic moment for the genre.

Jimmy Kimmel is coming into his second year as Oscar host with the confidence of knowing he had nothing to do with last year's historic envelope malfunction.

As the hype surrounding this year's Oscars grows, we turned to Bobette Buster, professor of the practice of digital storytelling in the College of Arts, Media and Design. Kimmel has already had several Oscar nominees on his late-night talk show. For all of Get Out's critical and commercial successes, scoring breathlessly positive reviews and becoming the third-biggest R-rated horror release in North American box office history, this point, about how Get Out looks and feels different than other best picture winners of the past and is therefore unworthy of the prize, may be what dooms the film's chances on Oscars night. "I'm still not clear on how the wrong envelope got into Warren Beatty's hands". Perhaps his most memorable joke was in 1968: "I've never seen six hours whiz by so fast".

Taryn Hurd, who is returning this year for her fifth time as the show's talent producer, was seated next to De Luca and Todd as the shock waves spread.

Obermaier: I actually do a gender and race breakdown of the Oscars every year. They're flickering images, and you are spellbound as if you're around a campfire.

At another, Hope cracked: "I think they ought to give me an Oscar just for attendance, don't you?" "I had multiple conversations with longtime Academy members who were like, 'That was not an Oscar film, ' " one new voter told the website.

Kimmel: All I hope to accomplish is, well, two things: I want to make people laugh, and I want to appropriately honor the people who have been dreaming of this night for their whole lives, and let them enjoy it, and let them say what they want to say. "We pretty much don't show any advertisements or anything like that".

Five directors are nominated for this category, and I honestly think it could reasonably go to four of them.

Greta Gerwig is only the fifth woman in Oscars history to be nominated for best director, but faces tough competition from Guillermo Del Toro, the favourite for The Shape of Water, Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk), Jordan Peele (Get Out) and Paul Thomas Anderson (Phantom Thread).
