TOP 10: LOOKING FOR OSCAR GLORY AFTER 1991 (Bette Makes The List Twice)

Awards Circiut
TOP 10: LOOKING FOR OSCAR GLORY AFTER 1991
By Sam Coffey – Apr 4, 20180

ACCA 1991As voting continues in ACCA 1991, Awards Circuit celebrates the many great films of 1991, perhaps one of the most historic years in Oscar history.  A number of talented performers, directors, writers, and craftsmen were nominated (or won!) for their great achievements but have somehow not found their way back to the Dolby Theatre.  Mercifully, some actors who remained on this barren list for ages eventually found Oscar glory again, with Robert De Niro landing his first nomination since “Cape Fear” with “Silver Linings Playbook” and Laura Dern doing the same in 2014 with “Wild” following up her first nomination for “Rambling Rose.”  Unfortunately, too many winners and nominees from 1991 have passed away, failing to get back to Oscar since this year, including Jessica TandyJack Palance, cinematographer Adrian Biddle, and shockingly Jonathan Demme.

Barbra Streisand’s “Guilt Trip” Moved Up A Week Ahead Of Bette Midler’s “Parental Guidance”

Examiner
Barbra StreisandSeth Rogen‘s ‘The Guilt Trip’ will now open on December 19th
OCTOBER 30, 2012BY: ALLISON WALDMAN

Today, Paramount Pictures announced that instead of opening on December 25, the Barbra Streisand-Seth Rogen comedy “The Guilt Trip” will arrive in U.S. theaters on December 19, 2012. That’s six days earlier than Christmas Day, and places it in the heart of the holiday film season. It will also have a jump on the Bette Midler-Billy Crystal comedy “Parental Guidance,” which is perceived by some as a similar product and might have lead to confusion by consumers. Read More

Silver-Haired Christmas Day Showdown: Streisand vs. Crystal, Midler
8/22/2012 by Pamela McClintock

It’s been a decade since Billy Crystal, 64, appeared in a lead role in a major studio film — Analyze That in 2002. Bette Midler, 66, has made only indies of late (The Women, Then She Found Me). On Christmas Day, both are back in a major way in 20th Century Fox‘s all-audience comedy Parental Guidance as grandparents who are at odds with their daughter, played by Marisa Tomei, over their different parenting styles when left to baby-sit. Keenly aware of the growing power of the silver-haired moviegoer, Fox and producer Peter Chernin were happy to fashion the film around them as leads (Crystal co-write the script) versus relegating them to supporting roles.
