The road to the Oscars is paved with a dozen other awards ceremonies, all them celebrating the best in film and television and all them loaded with politics and vendettas and personal backbiting. Sure, this is a time for everyone in the industry to come together and celebrate a great year in cinema, but it is also a time all for insane machinations as everyone jockeys to win the world’s most popular popularity contest. In short: awards are really fun and impact the film industry in major ways, but they can also be silly. Keep that in mind as your favorite movies get ignored over the next few months.

In related news, the 2017 Screen Actors Guild Awards nominees have been announced and while awards are silly, this is a pretty stellar line-up of movies. Let’s take a look.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Clip

Hollywood and the music industry have occasionally crossed paths throughout the years — a pop star sings on a romantic-comedy soundtrack, a musician takes a dip in the acting pool — but in the era of needle drops and “Hans Zimmer is a rock god” takes, these intersections will only become more frequent.

Now that the Grammy Award nominations are out, Hollywood has scored big, raking in several nods for prolific blockbusters like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (best compilation soundtrack) and La La Land (best score soundtrack for visual media), as well a spoken word album nomination for the late and great Carrie Fisher. And of course we can’t go a year without Mr. Rock God himself, Zimmer, scoring two nominations for both Dunkirk and Hidden Figures.

Read on to see more of the Hollywood Grammy nominations.

Call Me By Your Name

It seems like there are two clear front-runners as the movie awards race kicks off with the Gotham Independent Film Awards.

While Jordan Peele’s horror hit Get Out swept multiple categories at the beginning of the ceremony including best screenplay, breakthrough director, and the audience award, it was Call Me By Your Name that won the coveted best feature award in a surprising last-minute twist. On the heels of the Independent Spirit Award nominations, which were also dominated by Get Out and Call Me By Your Name, it seems like these two films have been named front-runners in the Oscar race.

beauty and the beast re-release

In a tale as old as time, an awards hopeful is returning to theaters for a limited run just in time for awards season.

Bill Condon‘s lush remake of the animated classic Beauty and the Beast is getting a theatrical re-release in Los Angeles and New York City in the first week of December. It’s unsurprising considering the movie’s status as the highest-grossing movie of 2017, and the 1992 animated version’s own Academy Awards history. In a crowded Oscars race like this year’s, Beauty and the Beast won’t likely score a Best Picture nomination – but hey, at least those costumes look pretty.
