Viola Davis (‘Widows’) could still get Oscar nomination with only BAFTA as major precursor
Viola Davis received a much-needed boost in our Best Actress predictions for her performance as Veronica Rawlins in “Widows” thanks to the BAFTA Awards, who just gave her her third career nomination. While Davis had earned a fair amount of nominations from critics’ groups for “Widows,” BAFTA was her one and only mention from the major precursors, having been snubbed at the Golden Globes, Critics’ Choice and SAG Awards. Now, she is in a position to potentially sneak in at the Oscars, as many had been predicting earlier in the season.

SEE5 performers who got an Oscar boost from BAFTA nominations: Viola Davis, Adam Driver, Claire Foy, Sam Rockwell, Margot Robbie

Widows” has had a roller coaster of an award season, with its all-star cast led by Davis and the pedigree of Steve McQueen and Gillian Flynn making it an early contender. Then it was released in November and written

Listen: From ‘Beale Street’ to ‘Spider-Verse,’ Brian Tyree Henry Was Your 2018 Mvp
Welcome to “Playback,” a Variety / iHeartRadio podcast bringing you exclusive conversations with the talents behind many of today’s hottest films.

Emmy- and Tony-nominated actor Brian Tyree Henry is coming off a sensational year. A second, acclaimed season of FX’s “Atlanta” sent him headlong into a fall movie season that saw featured roles in Yann Demange’s “White Boy Rick,” Steve McQueen’s “Widows” and Barry Jenkins’ “If Beale Street Could Talk,” among others. He capped it all off with voice work in one of the year’s biggest hits, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.” It’s been a whirlwind for the 36-year-old North Carolina native, and it’s a million miles away from where he ever expected to end up.

Listen to this week’s episode of “Playback” below. New episodes air every Thursday.

“For me, [acting] seemed like something very unobtainable,” Henry says.

‘The Upside’ Film Review: Kevin Hart Is a Prop for Bryan Cranston’s Growth in Treacly Remake
For what it’s worth, “The Upside” is exactly what you think it is: the latest Hollywood effort that aims to show that a black man and a white man with seemingly nothing in common can see past their differences and develop a mutual friendship. It’s just as pat and basic as it looks and sounds.

Maybe as we enter 2019 clinging to ideals of goodness, there is a place for a film like this that doesn’t really have a point beyond which to say that we can, in fact, all get along no matter what. That is, after all, the basis of Dell (Kevin Hart) and Phillip’s (Bryan Cranston) professional relationship-turned-friendship.

When we first meet the two, we’re not really sure how they know each other, because Dell is behind the wheel of a luxury car driving at full speed while Phillip is quietly strapped in on the passenger side,
