    At last, it appears Warren Beatty’s Howard Hughes picture, co-starring the likes of Annette Bening, Alec Baldwin, Alden Ehrenreich, Lily Collins, Martin Sheen and Matthew Broderick, among others, will be hitting the big screen this fall. Fox/New Regency are set to release.

    What do we think of this one’s Oscar chances? Will it even ultimately see the light of day?

    We’ll see. If it fares well, I can imagine the Academy wanting to see their pal back at the ceremony. But as I recall, this took a while to come together and that isn’t always the best sign. Just ask the team behind The Danish Girl.

    Annette Bening could become a double nominee this year. Supporting Actress for her husband’s movie and Best Actress for Miranda July’s husband’s movie.

    The trailer is out and it kinda looks atrocious. Maybe it gets a GG spot because of the cast but ugh.

    Yeah, I’m skeptical, though I think, given the inevitable comeback narrative, Beatty’s a player and Bening could be too if 20th Century Women is strong enough to get her double nods. The techs look Oscar-calibur too.

    COMING SOON to The Awards Connection…Horror at the Oscars!

    I think this will be this year’s Trumbo/Hitchcock. Fun slice of Hollywood history that picks up either an actor or a tec. I mean that cast shouts SAG ensemble and after Trumbo, you can’t write it off. I think Beatty will be a strong player at the Globes and SAG at the very least

    Two pieces of interesting trivia here.

    If Beatty is nominated, that would be the third Oscar nomination for an actor portraying Howard Hughes, preceded by Leonardo DiCaprio in The Aviator and Jason Robards, Jr. in Melvin and Howard.

    Only depictions of British royalty Queen Elizabeth I (Elizabeth, Elizabeth: The Golden Age and Shakespeare in Love) and King Henry VIII (The Private Life of Henry VIII, A Man for All Seasons, and Anne of a Thousand Days) have a similar distinction.

    While Beatty has an Oscar for Best Director for Reds, he holds four acting nominations without a win. A nomination for Rules Don’t Apply would tie him with Albert Finney as the living actor with the most acting nominations without a win. If that occurs, sentiment may play a role in the Oscar campaign.
