Oscar Nominations The 10 Biggest Snubs and Surprises

first_imgAdvertisement Advertisement Twitter With Paul Thomas Anderson’s surprise appearance in best director came the snub of Martin McDonagh, the writer and director of Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which earned an impressive seven nominations—including the all-important best picture bellwether of best editing. McDonagh‘s absence doesn’t necessarily doom Billboards—it was Ben Affleck’s famous snub in director that helped propel Argo to best picture—but it‘s possibly a sign that the Academy may like Three Billboards a lot without being bowled over by its craft. Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment The Oscar nominations are out, and with them the usual selection of gasp-inducing moments for the would-be nominees who found themselves shut out. Below, a look at some of the morning‘s biggest snubs and surprises, from the Academy‘s depth of affection for a movie about a cranky costume designer to the best-cinematography nominee who made two different kinds of history.FRANCO, MAKE ROOM FOR WASHINGTONThe lingering question in the best-actor category was whether the allegations of sexual misconduct against James Franco, published days before Oscar voting ended, were widely read enough to deny the Disaster Artist star a best-actor nomination that had been widely expected. Apparently, it was. Even though Roman J. Israel, Esq. had a dismal box-office run and middling reviews, the still-electric star power of Denzel Washington seemed to be enough to push him into this category—even over Tom Hanks, who still has not had an Oscar nomination since Cast Away. With Gary Oldman still the likeliest winner—though he has his own tricky history—Oscar’s potential brush with controversy could still be coming . . . but they dodged a major bullet by leaving Franco out of the conversation.THE PHANTOM THREAD SURGEThe moody period piece released late in the year seemed destined to be a critical favorite that flew under the Academy’s radar, having earned two Golden Globe nominations and little else. (Daniel Day-Lewis was even snubbed by SAG!) But the film showed up strong on nomination morning, earning not just the expected nod for Day-Lewis and the hoped-for nod for composer Jonny Greenwood (his first nomination!), but attention for Lesley Manville in supporting actress, the exquisite costume design, and most surprising of all, best director for Paul Thomas Anderson—as well as best picture. None of this means any guaranteed wins; even Day-Lewis is an underdog. But what a pleasant surprise for the film‘s fans as well as for Focus Features, which has another best-picture nominee with Darkest Hour.THREE BILLBOARDS IS TRIUMPHANT, BUT WHERE’S MARTIN MCDONAGH?

Machados grand slam carries Padres over Harpers Phillies

first_img Categories: Local San Diego News, Sports FacebookTwitter June 4, 2019 Posted: June 4, 2019 ???? Man Diego, CA#FriarFaithful pic.twitter.com/QbqLXp1nT8— San Diego Padres (@Padres) June 4, 2019“It felt great. I finally got a good swing and got a grand slam and got the W,” Machado said. “Beating a good pitcher like (Aaron) Nola, I mean, he was getting out of some key situations there that we left runners in scoring position that we should have drove in. … Overall a good W, a good inning for the ballclub so we really thrive off that.”Machado’s two-out slam off JD Hammer highlighted the seven-run sixth. After rookie Josh Naylor hit a two-run single to knock out Nola (6-1), Hammer came on and walked Greg Garcia to load the bases. He struck out Franmil Reyes before Machado drove the next pitch for his ninth career slam.Machado signed a $300 million, 10-year deal with the Padres on Feb. 21 and Harper signed a $330 million, 13-year deal with the Phillies on March 1.Machado said he didn’t get a chance to speak with Harper before the game.“I think he was getting ready and I was. It’s always good to find a new home. He found one and I found one myself. That’s the most excitement that we could get, knowing that we’re going to be here for a long period of time.”Reyes homered off Nola in the fifth, his 17th, and Ian Kinsler hit a go-ahead double in the sixth.Nola allowed six runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings, struck out three and walked three.“I just didn’t have it tonight, really didn’t have anything,” Nola said. “Curveball was missing, changeup was missing, fastball was missing. ”San Diego’s Eric Lauer (5-4) held the Phillies to one run and two hits in six innings, struck out three and walked three.J.T. Realmuto homered off Brad Wieck in the seventh, his ninth. He also had an RBI single in the fourth.ODD PLAYMcCutchen drew a leadoff walk before Kinsler, the second baseman, let Jean Segura’s popup drop. Kinsler threw to first to get Segura, who slipped coming out of the box and didn’t run hard. McCutchen was caught in a rundown and was hurt as he spun and tried to elude the tag getting back to first. He had to be helped off the field.“I didn’t feel it pop or anything,” McCutchen said. “Something felt uncomfortable, something that made me grab my knee and go down. I’ve had an ACL injury before and I know what that feels like. This didn’t feel like that. It’s swollen a little but there’s still mobility, I can still move it and all that.“I didn’t know where Jean was,” he added. “I didn’t know that he wasn’t close. Had I known he was close I would have stayed on first and not even ran. It’s kind of like a golden retriever going after a stick, the ball drops, I’m going.”Kapler said the Phillies will bring up Adam Haseley on Tuesday and if McCutchen isn’t available for the Phillies, “it will sting.”UP NEXTPhillies: RHP Jerad Eickhoff (2-3, 4.10) is scheduled to start the middle game of the series Tuesday night.Padres: Rookie RHP Chris Paddack (4-3, 2.40) is looking to bounce back from a loss at the New York Yankees in which he allowed career-highs of six hits, four runs and three home runs.
