Billy Crystal questions the 'hostless Oscars'

  Billy Crystal questions the 'hostless Oscars' Comedy star Billy Crystal has claimed that having a hostless Oscars is like "having a trial without witnesses".The 71-year-old comedian - who has hosted the awards show on nine occasions - has admitted he isn't a fan of the hostless concept, revealing he loves the tradition of having one person helm the bash.

AP © AP AP Stars and studios received their first taste of 2020 awards with the Golden Globes earlier this month, but there’s more prizes ahead for the most celebrated television shows and films of the year. Next up on the award season calendar are the Screen Actors Guild Awards on January 19, 2020. If you’re the person who can’t stop raving about how Charlize Theron transformed into Megyn Kelly for Bombshell or how deliciously brilliant the whole cast of Fleabag is, this is the one you’ll really want to tune in for.

This year, notable films honored in the award show circuit include Quentin Tarantino’s revisionist history of the Manson murders, Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood; Bong Joon-ho’s class warfare pic Parasite; controversial villain origin story Joker; Greta Gerwig’s love letter to Little Women; and the emotionally gut-wrenching divorce drama Marriage Story. TV shows included everything from Big Little Lies to The Crown to Barry. Only one aspect of these movies and shows — the performances — will be honored at the upcoming SAG Awards, which makes the program different from the Oscars that will conclude award season.

How Katharine Hepburn and Harry Winston Paved the Way for Every Oscars Jewelry Moment

  How Katharine Hepburn and Harry Winston Paved the Way for Every Oscars Jewelry Moment The emerald necklace Winston loaned her in 1947 changed the way we see gems on the red carpet today.Hepburn wore fifteen 17th-century emeralds and 374 diamonds to the 1947 Academy Awards in the form of a necklace Harry Winston let her borrow for the evening. It was an historic piece, one that is now on exhibit at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. They call it the Spanish Inquisition necklace though no one knows exactly why; it has nothing to do with that chapter in history. But it did perhaps at one point belong to Spanish royalty.

Since the SAG Awards involve actors honoring actors , do the winners of the award show have an influence on the artists who take home the gold Like most awards shows, the Oscars are often full of surprises. However, what happens the night of the SAG Awards does serve as an indication of how

The SAG Awards are voted upon by members of the SAG-AFTRA guild. In the film categories, men and women receive nominations in supporting and leading roles individually. Casts as a whole are also nominated: This year, the casts of Bombshell, The Irishman, JoJo Rabbit, Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, and Parasite all earned nods. 

In the TV categories, actors are nominated individually the same way, with the exception that the category is divided between comedy and drama. TV movies and mini-series also receive separate leading and supporting actor and actress categories. 

One thing that makes the SAG Awards stand out from other Hollywood shows is that they give out specific awards for stunt performance. There are two stunt categories at the show: one award is given out for Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture, and another for best performance in a comedy or drama series. 

What Would Win The Best Picture Oscar 2020 If Normal People Voted?

  What Would Win The Best Picture Oscar 2020 If Normal People Voted? The answer might well come as a surprise Who actually makes up the Oscars 2020-voting Academy, and how do you weasel your way in? Being white (94 per cent) and male (77 per cent) certainly helps but, beyond depressing demographic stats, the 7,000-strong Hollywood cabal has always been shrouded in mystery.

Making a statement: SAG Award winner Elba declared 'this is diverse TV' as he took to the stage with his Beasts of No Nation co-star Abraham Attah to introduce a clip from Sparkling: Alicia Vikander cemented her Oscar chances with a win at SAG for her supporting role in the movie The Danish Girl.

The award show includes no categories for television, and does not give out any stunt performance accolades. Outside of performance, prizes for directing, producing, sound design, sound mixing, editing, as well as overall “best films” are awarded.

One reason why people tend to chat about the SAG Awards leading up to the Oscars is because the show is often a great predictor of which actors will take home gold at the Academy Awards. Last year, the SAG Awards awarded Glenn Close (The Wife) and Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody), who would go on to win Academy Awards for their roles.

For those watching at home, there’s one other reason why you might want to tune into the SAG Awards, even if you’re not a diehard fan of the season. Due to their limited amount of categories, the SAG Awards clock in at roughly two hours in length — practically breezy by award show standards. The Oscars, on the other hand, generally average just under twice that length. 

The SAG Awards take place on Sunday, January 19.
