Gary Oldman, meanwhile, won the best actor in a film award for his performance as Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour.” “I am so deeply honored and proud to win this magnificent award,” a clearly moved Oldman said.

She has a starring role on a Disney Channel show, tirelessly greets fans at Disney theme parks around the globe, and has inspired top fashion designers well into her octogenarian years. She is a licensing powerhouse. And on Jan. 22, she will receive her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Fittingly, Minnie’s longtime boyfriend, Mickey Mouse, will accompany her when she receives the honor. Mickey was the first cartoon character to get a star in 1978, when he was 50, and was later joined by other Disney toon characters.
Now it’s time for the winsome Minnie with the big bow and polka dot dress to join Tinker Bell, Snow White, Winnie the Pooh, Donald Duck and Mickey on the iconic walk. Minnie was unavailable for comment, but Russi Taylor, who has voiced her for more than 30 years
But the night wasn’t completely by the books. Here’s a look at some of the award show’s biggest curveballs:
Surprise: “This Is Us” (NBC)
Admittedly, this race was a tough one to call: Good arguments could have been made for any of the nominees. But “Stranger Things” was a surprise win last year, and the SAG did it again, crowning the NBC tearjerker. The last time a broadcast series took home the trophy was in 2006 for ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.”
Snub: “Stranger Things” (Netflix)
Speaking of “Stranger Things,” the Netflix series went 0-for-4 tonight. Nothing for David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, the stunt team, or the cast — depriving viewers of yet another rousing speech from Harbour and Winona Ryder’s facial
In her acceptance speech, Janney praised her I, Tonya cast members, particularly Margot Robbie.

Janney has been a dominant force this awards season, winning the Golden Globe for best supporting actress in
“Unsane” joins “7 Days in Entebbe” and “Aga” as new additions that, though part of the competition slate, will not actually vie for the Golden and Silver Bears. All will have their world premieres at the Berlinale, as will the two titles added Monday that will compete for prizes: “Ang panahon ng halimaw” (“Season of the Devil”) from the Philippines and “Museo” (“Museum”) from Mexico, starring Gael Garcia Bernal.
All but one of the 24 competition films have now been selected. Nineteen of the 24 will vie for the Golden and Silver Bears.
“Unsane,” which is set for a March 23 release in the U.S. via Fingerprint Releasing and Bleecker Street, stars Foy as a woman who is sent to a mental institution though it is unclear whether her greatest
Both films are part of the slowly expanding lineup of foreign titles to be handled through the Nationwide Alliance of Arthouse Cinemas. The organization’s objective is to increase the diversity of what plays in Chinese theaters and to educate Chinese audiences.
The Naac was formed in late 2016 as a public-private partnership involving exhibitors and distributors, as well as China’s National Film Archive. Since launching, it has expanded now to include 600 screens under management nationwide.
“Three Billboards” is exactly the kind of prestige and festival-winning title that the Naac originally set out to pick up. With four Golden Globes under its belt and a strong shot at picking up further Oscar trophies, it will release in China on March 2. But given the film’s expletive-ridden dialog, cuts by official censors seem a certainty.
