This Is How Much An Oscar Award Statue Actually Costs

Jimmy Kimmel hosted the 2017 Oscars as well

Emma Stone, who won Best Actress for La La Land in 2017, was one of the first presenters announced for this year's ceremony, to reveal the Best Actor victor. For all of Get Out's critical and commercial successes, scoring breathlessly positive reviews and becoming the third-biggest R-rated horror release in North American box office history, this point, about how Get Out looks and feels different than other best picture winners of the past and is therefore unworthy of the prize, may be what dooms the film's chances on Oscars night.

The films vying for the Oscar in this category include "Call Me by Your Name", "Darkest Hour", "Dunkirk", "Get Out", "Lady Bird", "Phantom Thread", "The Post", "The Shape of Water" and "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri". But then also these wonderful supporting performances and the fact that it stayed in the conversation the whole year I think tells you a lot about how good this film really is. She is required to sit at a segregated table at the ceremony.

In the 90 years that The Oscars have aired, only one female has taken home the trophy for Best Director.

1953 - The Oscars are televised for the first time.

Though it has a long way to go to catch Cameron's disaster epic "Titanic", "Dunkirk" did surpass Steven Speilberg's "Saving Private Ryan" (481.8 million dollars worldwide) to become the highest-grossing WWII movie of all time.

1968 - The Oscars awards ceremony is postponed for two days because of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. on April 4. Katharine Hepburn wins for "The Lion in Winter" and Barbra Streisand won for "Funny Girl". So perhaps it's not surprising that 62% of the public have seen no Best Picture nominee. Sacheen Littlefeather, an Indian activist, appears onstage in traditional Apache dress in Brando's place but declines the statuette.

Some industry pundits, including Fox News and Rolling Stone, now think "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" will edge out "The Shape of Water" to nab the top spot, especially since McDonagh was nudged out of the Best Director race by Paul Thomas Anderson, and Academy voters may opt to redress that slight with a big fat Best Picture win. The film also won the top prize at the BAFTA awards and the Golden Globes. They're good, just not Oscar-worthy when compared to their competition (other than for Oldman's performance, for which he is expected to win the Best Actor award). The audience responds with a standing ovation. "Love or hate his Three Billboards character, Rockwell gets the Overdue Oscar of the year, and for his best performance" - JB; "[Rockwell] should have won an Oscar for Moon" - DL.

2013 - Jennifer Lawrence trips and falls on her way to accept the best actress award for her role in "Silver Linings Playbook". Obviously you could go to an expert source for the answer, but by happy coincidence or tragic misadventure you seem to have found yourself among the predictions of a part-time movie reviewer who sees Jesus hiding in every cinematic corner.

The Oscars will be airing at 8 p.m. EST and will be hosted for the second year in a row by late night talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel. In response, the academy announces plans to increase the number of women and minority members.

"War for the Planet of the Apes" will be the first film in the franchise to win for its visual effects.
