Kevin Hart is a new example that we all have to erase our tweets from the past if we get a lot of public work. Like President Pedro Sanchez and the Director of Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn. The comedian and the actor of "Spider Vay" and "Spy and the Half" were chosen by the Hollywood Academy to represent Oscar 2019, but has finished withdrawing from the post from a dispute arising from old homophobic messages,
In two videos of Instagram (one of them saved from the bed, without a shirt but with many necklaces), Hart commented on the disputes: "Uncle, I am 40. If you do not believe that people change, they get mature, they develop when they grow up, I do not know what to tell you if you want to keep people in a position where they will always have to justify their I am not that man ", In videos, the actor explained that the Academy asks him to apologize for his jokes against the LGBT community: "I decided to surrender the apology (…) I've already talked about it a couple of times (…) I already said who I am now and who I was then",
A few hours later, Hart finally released that he finally stepped back from the position of the Oscar lecturer because "I do not want to be distracted by the night that so talented artists have to celebrate"Despite what he claims in the videos, the comedian apologized to this miracle of the LGBT community "about the insensitive words I said in the past",
I chose to leave this year's Oscar … this is because I do not want to be distracted by a night that has to be celebrated by so many incredible talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.

A controversial year for the Academy
In this way, the Academy is able to find a leading, or leading, or leading, gala to be held on February 25 at the Dolby Theater. Because of what is said in the media, the position is difficult to fill. It is not paid well enough, and this is a risk to the career of anyone who accepts her, as Danny Rovira can testify to Goya.
This race against home search time joins the disputes that prompted the creation of a "popular Oscar" that she is supposed to reward a movie for her commercial success. Following the criticism of the industry, the media and the public, the Academy decided to postpone this ambiguous proposal to the gala that will take place in 2020.
15 films already fighting for the Oscar 2019
1 The "Irishman"
There's a movie you just need to quote the guys to find out that your opportunities to finish a good handful of Oscars under your hand are important. And the "Irishman" is one of the most obvious of this season. This is not just the return of Martin Scorsese the Mafia genre on bloody streets, but in order to complete the fulfillment of the common dream was accompanied by the attention of Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Peschi and Harvey Keitel. The only element against it? It comes from Netflix's hand. It seems "but" unimportant to its unquestionable attractions. But "bigger" would be the fact that the film will need a very long postproduction and the premiere is not expected until 2019 so it will not arrive in time for the next Oscars. Is it too soon to start predicting Oscars for 2020?

We can not cheat, the last two films signed by Jason Reitman, "Life in Three Days" and "Men, Women and Children" They were a disaster on all levels. We are not talking about disappointment, eye, but for complete shipwrecks without the ability to reproduce.
However, we do not lose hope to restore the best version of the great Juno and Up in the air, but less when his return with Tully is accompanied by Charlize Theron as the protagonist and Diablo Cody Writer , combo, which already demonstrates its virtues in the underestimated "Young Adult". Fired by the critics, we have a serious candidate to sneak into categories like "Best Actress" and "Best Original Screenplay".

After his time at Sundance, "Wildlife", debuted in the direction of the actor Paul Dano, always an interesting person in front of the camera, has not stopped adding the adepts to his (oscillating) reason. With the participation of Carrie Mulligan, Ed Oksenbold and Jake Gyllenhaal, this story about the breakup of a family in the seventies seems to have everything in turn to be part of the required share of independent films that fall into the most important categories at night.
Given what has happened in the last edition of the Lady Bird and Let Me Out Awards, it is clear that the first operas have much to say in this new stage of the Oscars. Will we be before another "newcomer" with a statuette he owns?
4 "Island Dogs"
Known from its latest premiere at the Berlin Isla de Perros Festival, the new lively suggestion of beloved Wes Anderson, seems to go with the sixth fixed march to Oscar for best animated film.
In a year in which the big opponent, Pixar, will shoot for the sequel to "The incredible 2", one of the few areas where the company has not been enthusiastically accepted by the Academy, the director of the Grand Hotel Budapest, a masterpiece, is the favorite to win one of the statues of the night. The question is in any case Guess your options to fight for other night awards, such as "Best Movie". You can never turn off good old Wes.

After winning an Oscar for best film for the exceptional 12 years of slavery, in one of the most competitive races in recent years, mostly due to the sublime "Gravity," Steve McQueen returns to the director's chair with the Widows, one of the projects that look whole or nothing. Adaptation of the British Ministry "Widows", this project this also implies the premiere of the director in the field of the purest thriller, a genre in which, we suppose, he will try to transfer his peculiar and poetic person behind the camera.
Take better or worse, which is clear that the Widows have an indisputable arsenal in the interpretative area with Viola Davis, Elizabeth Debbie, Liam Nyson, Michelle Rodriguez, Daniel Kalluya, Carrie Koun, Colin Farrell, Jackie Weaver and Robert Duval , by the way. PIt seems impossible for no one to go into the categories of interpretation.
6 "If Bale Street Can Speak"
Barry Jenkins is not possible to live at an Oscar ceremony, more measured than he had "Moonlight". Absolutely Impossible This gem ends up giving the main prize of the night against the big favorite ("The City of Stars: La La Land") in one of the most surprising and awkward results in the history of the awards.
Well, a few months later, the director can repeat the triumph, although we hope that in a more perfect way, adapting it to "If Bale Street Can Speak," the adaptation of James Baldwin's novel telling the story of Tish, Harlem pregnant and newborn who fights against the clock to prove the innocence of her partner. Golden opportunity again to enjoy the talent of a director who is already an Oscar story. Although, of course, not the way you would like.
7 "The Death and Life of John F. Donovan"
This tense relationship that seems to hold the Academy in the cinema of true Canadian director Xavier Dolan, who makes his youth 29 years old, something like insult, has experienced his worst moment after the disputed absence of the wonderful "Mama," his best working up to now, in the category "Best Foreign Language Film". The decision, which is less controversial, that, carefully, may eventually play for compensatory issues of John F. Donovan's Death and Life, a new project in which the directorhas succeeded in uniting voices of an authentic dream: Kit Harrington, Jacob Tremblay, Susan Sarandon, Kathy Bates, Michael Gambon, Natalie Portman, Tandy Newton or Adele. Scandal
A group of top performers including Jessica Chastain, who, after all, Dolan, who finally has the opportunity to combine with the most important awards in the industry. Of course, this is expedient for years.

A priori, George Lantimos does not look like a kind of director, whose proposals, always unpredictable, risky and somewhat provocative, start with an advantage to win Oscar. In fact, there are still many people celebrating their nomination for the best original script for the great Langosta. However, "The Favorite", his next project after the unclassified "The sacrifice of a sacred reindeer" offers strong arguments to begin thinking that the Greek can eventually sneak into the struggle for the statuep.
In short: Rachel Weiz, Emma Stone, Olivia Coleman and Nicholas Holt, in a historical drama about the policies used during Anne Stewart's rule. Even if Lantymos pulls from his most perverse side, we are a pre-cassette that can fit perfectly into categories such as Best Art Direction or Best Costume. Pull "low".

9 "First Man"
Oscar-winning director of "The City of Stars: La La Land", Damien Chazelle.
Ryan Gosling as the main character.
The true story of astronaut Neil Armstrong, one of the main figures of American history.
And above all the feeling that the last Oscar-winning experience of the director and the actor is very close to television torture for millions of viewers around the world.
The effect of compensation has led to the most absolute limit, the sense of "debt" to the past bad drink, and the eye, the confidence that we are faced with one of the proposals with more opportunities to become the ribbon of the year, make "the first person" , in which it was announced its launch, Oscar's first favorite for best film. Although we did so a few years ago, singing City of the Stars, and, well, we already know the way it's over.

10 "Maruen's Wives"
With Robert Zemeckis you never know, the same thing turns you into a masterpiece that balances the most boredom. In any case, it must be fair one of the brightest Hollywood directors of recent decades and we believe with all our might that your "Maruen's Wives" will end up fulfilling the expectations.
With the participation of Steve Carell, who is increasingly interested in adding an Oscar to his career, we are before the real story of Mark Hogankamp, a man who, after being in a coma nine days after suffering, woke up with full amnesia. his only therapy was to build models with figures from the WWII soldiers. From this mixture of drama and fantasy, we hope everything in the visual, secure value of the Zemeckis brand and in the emotional, a factor that seems more than key in the film's options to be part of the next statue race.
11 "Mary, Queen of the Scots"
Well, we do not have much information from the new director, Josie Rourke, but Maria, Queen of the Scots, her first feature film,He has all the necessary elements that must be obtained as one of the first favorites to be more confronted with Oscar. Both. Biopic for the life of Queen Maria Stuart of Scotland, which places a special emphasis on the monarch's confrontation with her cousin Elizabeth I, this historic drama with a lush atmosphere and a purely British essence is distinguished by her participation in two of the most important female stars appearing in the final stage of Hollywood: Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie, two wonderful performers who have already fought in the latest Best Actress Award, thanks to her roles in the exclusive "Lady Bird" and "Yo, Tonya" , respectively.
In the absence of information about whether the entire film will be in line with expectations, we intersect our fingers so it does not turn out to be something like a telefilm, we have (almost) certainty that both will have a lot of presence in the next prize competition. Yes, again. And those that are needed.

12 "Boy Erased"
Oscars may want to join the parties and celebrations held at the beginning of the second golden age of the great Nicole Kidman's career. For this, "Boy Erased," Joel Edgerteon's second feature film, after his remarkable debut "El regalo", may be the perfect vehicle. And that is, we are faced with a perfectly oscillating story who tells the story of the son of a Baptist preacher who is forced to take part in a church-backed homosexuality treatment program.
Drama in which Kidman, which gives her the feeling that she needs very little to be in the "Best Actress" category of this race, will be accompanied by Russell Crowe, own Edgarton and Lucas Hedges, less promise and greater security.

13 "Handsome boy"
Have we been talking about stories that start on paper with the advantage of fighting for statuettes? Okay, well, is the beautiful boy's summary: "The chronicle of methamphetamine addiction and the healing of a father watching his son as he struggles against this disease, do you need more? We have it: Steve Carell and Timothy Chalameth as main characters and director of the acclaimed Alabama Monroe, Felix Van Groningen, behind the camera.
You will no longer add.

In recent years, relying on the latest edition, the Oscars and Mexico live in an authentic love story. However, one of the most acclaimed film producers in the country, Alfonso Cuaron, is missing, and what his compilers Guillermo del Toro and Alejandro Gonzalez Inyurt have done is Oscar for the best film. Yes, the three rely on their shelves with the best director, but they still lack the key piece in the most important category.
To do so with the masterful "Gravity" movie that gives the impression that the Academy has been awarded another year in which she has not competed against "12 years of slavery", and we talked about extra-cinematic elements, try Cuarón again "the Roma," his peculiar and authoritative look at Mexico of the seventies. Deep personal project of the director, which surely leaves no one indifferent. And this includes the Academy.
15 The "Black Panther"
Stirring has already begun. It helps popular press, historical collections, global enthusiasm and, above all, the feeling that we are indeed in front of an important blockbuster whose weight will not remain exclusively in the present. The "Black Panther" This may be the one who eventually throws superhero movies in the category "Best Movie".
Moreover, everything indicates that we are in the field of now or never, a factor that is more than adding to the glorified renewal of a part of the Academy whose new members seem to rely on less predictable opportunities. Victory is a mission that is more than impossible, but if it keeps its echo within a few months and it seems complicated that it does not happen, the king of Wakanda can choose perfectly the most desired statuette.
