The Oscars are just a week away and there's still no Best Pitcture front-runner. Cinemablend's Sean O'Connell joins Cheddar to handicap the race heading into the homestretch. "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" just posted a late-season surge with a big night at the BAFTA's.
O'Connell says the field has boiled down to "Three Billboards," "The Shape of Water," and "Get Out." He warns that it might be a boring night considering the major acting categories all seem like locks at this point. The managing editor points to Best Director as the most competitive award of the night.
Disney's theatrical chief Thomas Schumacher is the latest Hollywood power player to face accusations of harassment. O'Connell considers the scandal's consequences for the studio in light of claims made against Animation Chief John Lasseter. The news comes as "Frozen" prepares to open in previews on Broadway.
