Bohemian Rhapsody

Rami Malek is everywhere at the moment, deservedly so. Fresh from his Oscar-winning role as Freddie Murcury in Bohemian Rhapsody, the next role is always a tricky one for those who win the prestigious award.

The film industry are keeping an eye on his next move, and Deadline is now reporting that Malek is in talks to become the next James Bond villain. This is pure perfection in casting, if we do say so ourselves.

If you've seen him in Mr. Robot, his stoic expressions and ability to embody mysteriousness is ideal for a walled-off and deceptive villain. Oh, and did we mention the iconic Lupita Nyong’o is might be courted as Bond 25's female lead?

Malek is reportedly closing the deal to act opposite Daniel Craig in Craig's last run as the renowned MI5 agent. Variety was first to mention Malek’s talks, with Cary Fukunaga directing the flick.

Nyong’o won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar in 2013 for 12 Years A Slave, and has played her role in blockbusters like the unbelievable Best Picture nominated Black Panther. She's also starring in Jordan Peele's new genre film Us.

The 007 bad-guy role is always an incredible actor, do we remember Javier Bardem's turn? *Shivers* That man did too good a job of acting evil, it's convincing AF. We're dying to see what Malek will do with the role.

Christoph Waltz also played a Bond nemesis, with both Waltz and Bardem having their own Oscar-winning performances before transforming into treacherous deceptives.

Also joining Bond 25 alongside Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny and Ben Whishaw as Q is the talented actor Billy Magnussen.

The hyper-charming American is best known for his roles in Velvet Buzzsaw, Game Night and a hugely unique turn in Maniac alongside Emma Stone and Jonah Hill.

He's playing a CIA agent, and the eye candy is strong with this one.

He’s going to play a CIA agent, which essentially means he’ll be sent in to float James Bond when he inevitably runs out of money and pick up the pieces after he runs amok in a glamorous foreign location. 

Magnussen and Malek in the same film might just send us over the edge; both talented and gorgeous humans. Wow, we can't WAIT for Bond 25 now, but a woman needs to be given the MI5 badge.

Or the role of a villain, seriously. Those men get all the juicy roles.

Rami Malek is a treasure who must be protected at ALL COSTS.

The 37-year-old won the prestigious Best Actor gong at the 91st Academy Awards last night, his first win and nomination, so his nerves are understandable.

The adorable, immensely talented actor was kissing his co-star girlfriend Lucy Boynton the entire night, and we don't blame him. It was basically Wezz. He declared his love for her in his speech, and pretty much everyone melted.

Malek and Boynton play Freddie Mercury and Mary Austin in Bohemian Rhapsody, which was the biggest winner of the night but failed to win Best Picture, and the world has fallen in love with them.

On stage, Rami professed his love for the 25-year-old English actress before falling off afterwards and had to be treated by paramedics, which will 100 percent make a great story to tell the grandkids.

He said, "Lucy Boynton, you are the heart of this film, you are beyond immensely talented, you have captured my heart. Thank you so much." AW. He also opened up about his Egyptian heritage;

Malek is apparently moving to London to be around his love, after totally falling for her. The poor lad even fell off the stage with the shock of his award, with People reporting that Malek was moved to a private area backstage.

"Paramedics appeared to rush to the actor's aide, who was photographed seated in the front row with his Oscars statuette still in hand. Malek was then moved to a private area backstage, where he received further treatment for possible injuries."

Malek was unable to pose with Mahershala Ali, Regina King and Olivia Colman, who also won big at the Academy Awards in the Dolby theatre. He was featured in a photo with them after the ceremony however.

Bohemian Rhapsody was the biggest winner of the night, taking home the awards for Best Actor, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing and Film Editing.

Spike Lee, director of BlacKkKlansman, was NOT happy when Green Book took home Best Picture, which has been controversially labelled a "white saviour" movie.

Queen featuring Adam Lambert opened up the Oscars instead of an opening monologue, as the ceremony went hostless without Kevin Hart.

NOW TV has revealed the Irish public's faves for this Sunday's Academy Awards, and some of them just might surprise you.

While many are speculating that Green Book or Bohemian Rhapsody will take the gong, Ireland's top choice for the Best Picture Award is A Star Is Born, featuring Lady Gaga and directed by and starring Bradley Cooper.

Black Panther is also a dark horse in the category, being the first superhero movie to ever be nominated for the coveted prize.

In terms of Irish talent, 44 percent of the nation's participants believe that Saoirse Ronan was robbed of a Best Actress Oscar nod (which would be her FOURTH nomination) for Mary, Queen of Scots.

The starred in the film alongside Margot Robbie as Queen Elizabeth, and many believe her amazing performance deserved the nomination. Her previous category nods include roles in Brooklyn, Lady Bird and Atonement.

20 percent of survery participants said that they will be following the results and outcome on social media, and we suspect many of us will be gaggin' to see the gorgeous couture being donned.

Timothée Chalamet is another reason to watch…Just saying…

Unsurprisingly, Ireland's choice for Oscar host is the white wine-sipping legend that is Graham Norton. The acerbic wit would be pure gas at the Hollywood event, if his hilarious Eurovision content is anything to go by.

The public voted 64 percent in his favour as host. NOW TV also found that 47 percent of Irish people will be watching the 91st Academy Awards on social media, a highlights reel or the news. 

25 percent of Irish people will wait until the next morning to get the Oscars gossip, rather than the 20 percent who plan to keep updated as the ceremony happens.

For any Oscars enthusiasts, watching the Academy Awards is easier than ever. NOW TV also calculated Ireland's favourite or most memorable Oscar moments, and they're still scandalous as ever.

The La La Land Best Picture error in 2017 topped the poll as the most memorable Oscar moment, with more than one-third of respondents recalling the horrendous moment that the film was called out as Best Film by MISTAKE, stealing Moonlight's thunder.

Ellen DeGeneres' star-studded selfie was next in line, taking 22 percent of the Irish public's vote.

In terms of red carpet fashion highlights, 26 percent of participants chose Cher's 1986 bare stomach look with a feathered headpiece as the biggest fashion fail. Bjork's 2001 swan dress with egg laying motion was also a high contender in the faux pas category.

Sacha Baron Cohen appearing as Admiral General Aladeen took 21 percent of the fashion fail vote, and Gwyneth Paltrow’s braless goth look from 2002 had 19 percent of the vote.

Kevin Hart stepped down as Academy Awards host in January after homophobic tweets were revealed and he failed to apologise this year for them, leaving the 2019 Oscars hostless. It's a shame Graham Norton wasn't asked…

Ellen DeGeneres topped the polls as the most favourable Oscar's host, taking 29 percent of the participants' favourite vote, and Whoopi Goldberg came second with 20 percent. Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin had 14 percent of the vote as a comedic duo.

31 percent of Irish people want A Star Is Born to sweep the ceremony, and hope for Gaga to win Best Actress (39 percent) and Bradley Cooper as Best Actor (32 percent). They do have outrageously great chemistry… and he should have gotten the Best Director nod too. I stand by that,

NOW TV have given us the goss, and you can watch the ceremony through their website here.

Lady Gaga has spoken only the kindest words about Bradley Cooper, her talented Oscar nominated co-star and Oscar-snubbed director of A Star Is Born.

The nominations for the Academy Awards were announced on Tuesday, and while both actors earned nominations for Best Actor and Best Actress, Cooper was snubbed for Best Director. (More like ROBBED)

Bradley has been an unofficial favourite for multiple honours during awards season, but didn't receive the nod this time around, despite the film earning eight nominations overall.

The film was a remake of the classic movie about an ageing rock star and Jackson Maine, who falls in love with aspiring musician and muse, Ally. It was Cooper's first major project as a director, and he did a stunning job.

Lady Gaga told the Los Angeles Times after hearing of his Oscar snub that "at the end of the day, he knows that he’s the best director in my eyes, and in all of our eyes as his cast."

The singer has repeatedly told of how welcoming he was on set, and how he magically made the private, safe atmosphere perfect for the performer to shed her mask and dive into the difficult role of Ally.

Gaga is the favourite to take the award for Best Original Song home for their duet, Shallow.

The 32-year-old spoke of the unpredictability of awards season, saying; "You never know what’s going to happen."

The Grammy-winner said that Cooper was pleased as the film, his directorial debut, was well-represented in terms of the Academy Awards, despite not receiving the coveted Best Director nod. 

"I know that he’s so happy that we’ve all been nominated and that the film was recognised and we all feel really, really beyond elated for the recognition,' the Perfect Illusion singer told the publication.

Gaga is experienced in awards ceremonies herself, winning six Grammys out of 24 nominations, as well as a Golden Globe.  "There's really no award that is more esteemed than the Oscar in acting, and for music, it is also extremely special," she said.

"Since I was a little girl, I always admired all of the artists that put in so much hard work and passion into filmmaking. Watching the award shows, I used to cry with them."

'It was always like I felt like I was them, even though I wasn't there. It was always a big deal with my family," she stated. 

The singer, who is already achieving massive success with her Las Vegas residency Enigma, told The New York Times she overslept, and didn't hear the Oscar nominations being read that morning.

"I just burst into tears," Gaga told the Times. Congrats to Gaga and Bradley on their well-deserved nominations.

As for the Best Director gong, well… now he knows how every female director feels, every single year *sprinkles salt*

Another year, another Academy Award's series of snubs. It wouldn't be the Oscars unless some fandoms were left devastated on behalf of their favourite actor or actress, would it?

The 2019 awards are seeing some record breakers, first-time achievements and MAJOR actors left out of the nominations, much to the upset of Twitter.

So who are the biggest history makers and snubbed heartbreakers?

1. Timothée Chalamet, Beautiful Boy

Our favourite human ever (protect him at all costs) failed to garner an Oscar nod for his protrayal of a crystal meth addict son of Steve Carrell (also snubbed), and people are ChalaMAD about it. 

He was ROBBED.

We won't forget this, Academy. You've made an enemy.

2. Bradley Cooper for Best Director, A Star Is Born. Okay, but women get snubbed in this category every year, so let's not cry too hard.

We're super shook by this one, Lady Gaga must be upset on his behalf since she's been endorsing him for the entire of awards season ("There could be 99 in a room but all it takes is just one to believe in you")

Classic Guardians of the Galaxy reference, we had to laugh at this one.

3. Crazy Rich Asians for…ANY category. Any. 

Michelle Yeoh deserved recognition for her outstanding take in the all-star Asian cast, she slayed that screen. She even owns that iconic emerald ring featured in the film, if that's not commitment I don't know what is.

It's offeNSIVE god damn it.

Looks like a riot is about to happen… 

4. Emily Blunt for EITHER Mary Poppins Returns or A Quiet Place

HOW.

She's so versatile, so dedicated, so classy. We can feel her hubby John Krasinski's blood boil.

Processing this snub is a hard pill to swallow right now.

Rest in pieces.

5. A FEMALE DIRECTOR. AGAIN.

We cannot believe this…it's 2019 and still only five women have EVER been nominated, and only one woman has ever won the gong (Kathryn Bigelow).

Lynne Ramsay’s You Were Never Really Here, and Debra Granik’s Leave No Trace, despite being recognised on the film circuit by Sundance and Cannes, received no nominations.

Ramsay and BlacKkKlansman director Spike Lee, who has earned his first Academy Award nomination, are the most laureled filmmakers on the critics’ awards circuit after Alfonso Cuarón for Roma.

Other women who were ignored were Marielle Heller for Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Chloe Zhao for The Rider, Tamara Jenkins (Private Life), Karyn Kusama (Destroyer), Mimi Leder  for On the Basis of Sex and Josie Rourke for the incredible Mary Queen of Scots.

The NECK.

At least Canadian artist Domee Shi is being celebrated as the first female director to be nominated for Best Short Film, after helming Pixar's adorable Bao.

Behold; a series of tweets showing every sibling relationship ever.

Anyone who has a brother or sister knows that, even if they achieve something as magnificent as a Golden Globe nomination, you just HAVE to slag them. You have to.

The roast began with Macaulay Culkin sitting down to watch his brother, Kieran Culkin, at the lucrative awards ceremony last night.

He started off pretty tame, observing his brother's presence and pretending not to know that he was nominated. We'd all do it, let's be honest.

PG enough:

His bro was there as part of the TV drama Succession, which earned him a nomination.

Then he even throws in a compliment, calling his bro 'handsome';

He even spots his brother in the distant crowd, hiding among the celebs; 

He then spells his brother's name wrong, which we're assuming was a joke but who even knows?

He tries to use him for Twitter follower purposes, which is relatable content.

If our brother was at a ceremony filled with celebs we'd force him to track them all down for autographs and follower requests:

Then he joked that he never answers his calls, which is why he seemingly had no clue that his brother had been nominated. Bit of a gas, but we hope he's joking…

We're appreciating the comedic content, we really are.

He finished off with a show of support for his brother, despite the fact that he didn't win. Except he also claims to have been supporting another actor…LOL:

We're positive that Kieran is well aware of the fact that he didn't win… but sure look, sure listen.

Typical sibling bonding right there, no apologies ever to be made for the vicious roasting.

For anyone who saw Kanye West attempting to perform the one and only Bohemian Rhapsody during his Glastonbury performance, there was only one thought – ‘Freddie Mercury would be laughing his socks off if he could see this.’

And that is exactly what he did!

Sam Valorose, a writer for the New York radio station Q1043, created a hilarious video of the great Mr Mercury watching the rapper attempt the song. Freddie then takes over, much to the dismay of a disgruntled Kanye.   

While Kanye is undoubtedly one of the most talented hip hop artists of the 21st century, he’s not exactly known for his singing capabilities – something that is glaringly obvious in this hilarious clip.
