Gary Oldman's mother is his 'champion'

Gary Oldman's mother is his 'champion'

The beloved performer won her second overall Academy Award for Best Actress Sunday night at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, taking the prestigious achievement during the 90th Oscars ceremony over fellow contenders Sally Hawkins (The Shape of Water), Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird), Margot Robbie (I, Tonya), and Meryl Streep (The Post). The ceremony will air live nationwide on the most popular American Broadcasting Company (ABC) at 8 pm Eastern Time (6:30 am IST). It followed a slew of wins across nearly every awards ceremony this season, including the BAFTAs, the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild Awards, so when his name was called out yesterday it was more of an inevitability than any kind of glorious surprise. This will also be his third nomination.

Meanwhile, Bryant's criminal case fell apart at trial after his alleged victim, a 19-year-old hotel worker, refused to co-operate. Now it's time to catch up with all those newly-minted Oscar-winning films you never got around to seeing in the theater.

His performance has been lauded by the reviewers in an otherwise slow film. Celebrities wore all black to the Golden Globes in solidarity with Time's Up - though they quickly abandoned the dress code at the ensuing awards. That will hold true this year, too, with Gary Oldman's portrayal of Winston Churchill in "Darkest Hour".

But if you're determined to then, thanks to a combination of tips from in-the-know Hollywood types and a bit of educated guessing, here's my stab at who the big winners are going to be.

Delta Will Review 'Politically Divisive' Discounts After NRA Fallout
Delta has now joined several other organisations which have ended their aid to the NRA members following the February 18 incident. CEO Ed Bastian said in a memo to employees Friday that the company's goal was to "remain neutral" in the debate over guns.

Apparently, this wasn't the only occasion where she set down her Oscar over the course of the night. Take a deep breath, have a seat, prepare to have your mind possibly blown but possibly not, depending on whether or not you were already aware that Gary Oldman used to be married to Lesley Manville (a short time before his marriage to Uma Thurman) and they have a son. So what makes Timothée performance so great that he is considered a bet? His life changes with the arrival of Oliver, a doctoral student who comes to Elio's father who offers an annual internship. Timothée Chalamet, in the last scene, shows why he is the talent to look forward to. It's a win-win for the family really.

"Literally ANY OF THE OTHER FOUR NOMINEES would have been better than Gary Oldman", writes Buzzfeed editor Kristin Chirico.

Having for so always been "the biggest actor never to win the most important prize in show business", finally Gary Oldman has received his just rewards, for his lead performance in Darkest Hour.
