The Year on the Red Carpet
L.A. Film Critics Association
1 / 18 Actor, Eddie Redmayne in “Paddington 2.”
Eddie Redmayne has won the best actor Oscar twice and is currently vying for another trophy: Best Screenplay at the 32nd Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards. Redmayne comes to this year’s A-list appearance with “Paddington 2,” for which he was chosen best director and received support from L.A. critics. Also in his sights for best actor is, for the second time, Daniel Kaluuya. For his role in “Get Out,” Kaluuya is already a first-time Oscar nominee. Ryan Gosling is nominated for “Blade Runner 2049,” while Ryan Reynolds is nominated for “Deadpool.” Fans of “The Voice” might recognize Miley Cyrus, who in January released her fourth studio album “Malibu.” The Recording Academy, who has said Cyrus is a nominee, is keeping the list under wraps for now.
And, of course, you can catch Michael B. Jordan and “Black Panther.” Despite the fact that Jordan won the 2014 NAACP Image Award for Best Supporting Actor, he has yet to be nominated for an Oscar. Still, Jordan is nominated for best supporting actor in the 2018 Oscars, for his role in “Black Panther.” This will be his first Oscar nomination. Other A-listers making their movie debuts at this year’s L.A. Film Critics Awards include Kristen Stewart, who stars in “Personal Shopper,” an indie flick that has been garnering attention for its fashion-forward storytelling. Another Hollywood newcomer, “Deadpool” actors T.J. Miller and Leslie Uggams, are also in the running. Overall, the Los Angeles Film Critics Association gave awards to “Dunkirk,” “Call Me By Your Name,” “I, Tonya,” “Coco,” “Ferdinand,” “The Shape of Water,” “The Florida Project,” “The Death of Stalin,” “Mudbound,” “Wonderstruck,” “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” “Wonder Woman,” “Phantom Thread,” “The Post,” “The Shape of Water,” “Wind River” and “The Post.” This year’s awards show also saw a few surprises: In addition to the usual golden statues for best picture, best screenplay and best picture, “I, Tonya” won best supporting actress for Allison Janney.
