By KEN DOWD | APRIL 12, 2017 – 06:06:38AM Porn stars are the latest celebrity couples to be on the big screen this year.
The Golden Globes nominations for best movie, best sex act, best costume and best music for the Oscars were announced on Wednesday, and they are expected to bring a flood of Oscar-worthy films to the box office.
From the best-selling, most talked-about movie, the romantic comedy, “Mr. Robot,” to the most recent installment of the sci-fi series, “Ender’s Game,” the nominees are likely to include stars such as Kate Upton, who has won three Golden Globies.
The new series, from the creators of the hit series “The Good Wife,” will also be in the Oscar race, with “Mamma Mia!” actress Amy Brenneman and actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson nominated for best supporting actress.
“Ender: The Game” and “The Weinstein Co.’s” “Everest” will also get Oscar nods, along with “Django Unchained,” “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” “Maddie” and the upcoming “Bates Motel.”
The new “X-Men: Apocalypse” movie starring James McAvoy, Josh Brolin and Tye Sheridan will also earn a nod.
“X-MEN: Apocalypse,” the fourth installment of “The Wolverine,” will be the latest superhero film to make the big-screen, with a budget of $100 million.
Also on the list is “The Night Before” from “Mulan” director Lee Daniels and “Kinky Boots 2,” the second installment in the popular British horror series “Kink,” which will be in theaters March 24.
Also nominated for an Oscar is “Empire” director Alfonso Cuarón and “Pulp Fiction” director Quentin Tarantino, who both will be nominated for the best screenplay Oscar.
“Actors like Amy Brenna, Kate Upton and Josh Brolins are all going to be nominated,” said Jeff Bock, an Oscar historian.
“There’s going to come a point in time where every actress who’s going on the red carpet has a chance at an Oscar.
And that’s what this is all about.”
Daniels and Tarantino are the first Oscar nominees in 40 years, and the Golden Globaries are set to begin Feb. 13.
The list of nominees also includes two new movies from the “Easter egg” directors of “Babylon 5” and director Joss Whedon.
The first is “Miles Ahead,” a film about an Israeli soldier who accidentally kills an American in the Middle East.
The second is “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” which follows the rise of a super-villain in the United States and a battle against a deadly virus.
“I’m going to miss ‘Easter Egg’ but I’m thrilled with what the movie has achieved,” said Whedon, who directed the film “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and was nominated for two Oscars.
“I’ve been doing it for 15 years and I can’t wait to see it on the Oscars stage.”
The “Egg” film will be released Feb. 20, 2019, and will be followed by “Ride,” starring Emma Stone and Amy Adams, which will begin Feb 24.
The “Rides” film is set to be released in theaters on March 1.
Whedon also is nominated for his “Bones” sequel, which is due to be directed by Steven Spielberg, the man who brought “Avatar” and other “Star Wars” movies to life with a live-action remake in 2015.
Waters said “Elderly Man” is a new favorite film from the director, who also directed the “Saw” remake and “Jaws.”
“We love the way that Spielberg is capturing the essence of what it is to be a small-town American family, the sense of community and what it means to be an American family,” Waters said.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing that back to the big screens.”
In addition to the Golden Globe nominations, the Oscars will also award three other trophies.
The most prestigious trophy will go to a new award: best original screenplay, which has not been given to a movie in more than a decade.
The winner is determined by a panel of judges, including Oscar voters, critics and fans.
The next most prestigious Oscar is a lifetime achievement award, which awards the most influential person in a film.
The most influential individual, however, has not received an Oscar nomination in more that a decade, so the next most influential film will go back to being considered in 2015 when the first nominee, Michael Mann, was nominated.
In addition, the next nominee is eligible for the Oscar’s best director award.
That honor is not given to the next-most-powerful individual, so in this category, the winner is the one nominated
