Oscar season offers promise and frustration at the same time. While it’s impossible to find a movie theater or multiplex that’s playing every single film with a major nomination, most corporate chains and art houses are capitalizing on the lead-up to the 91st Academy Awards by catering to their audiences with limited, crowd-pleasing selections.In that way, enterprising cinephiles can track down many of this year’s big titles before the Feb. 24 telecast on ABC. And if that fails, there’s always streaming (see below). For clarity, we declined to list mainstream films that are still in first-run theaters and that did not receive a Best Picture nomination — such as “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse” (Best Animated Feature nominee) — given that they’re widely available through the end of the month. Here’s a quick guide to what’s playing: Sie FilmCenter What: The home of the Denver Film Society is showing both individual … [Read more...] about Where to see Oscar-nominated films in Denver before the 2019 Academy Awards
2018 oscar predictions
Alfonso Cuarón could snatch a Best Director statue for Roma. Carlos Somonte The 91st Academy Awards still doesn’t have a host, but it does have a handful of serious contenders vying for its most coveted trophies. In a year packed with good films (though perhaps not many great ones), this Oscars race is as crowded—and clouded—as ever. Based on everything we’ve seen, industry chatter, the results of other awards ceremonies thus far and the Academy’s history, here’s who we think will get nods when the 2019 nominations are announced January 22—and who will win when the big event takes place on February 24.Best PictureTop Contenders:A Star Is BornStill in the Running: Can You Ever Forgive Me?Eighth GradeWidowsFirst ManA Star Is Born was arguably 2018’s most anticipated movie and, somehow, it lived up to the hype.

Here are the Oscar-worthy movies you should keep an eye on this fall. By Sophie Bennett, Staff Writer September 12, 2018 As Oscar season creeps up on us, the fall movie lineup boasts a full roster of promising films. MoviePass may be gasping for air as it drowns in debt, but even if you’re paying full price, these films are worth a little budget bending. The first major film of awards season is the Oct. 5 release “A Star is Born,” directed by Bradley Cooper and starring Tisch dropout Lady Gaga.
