What The 2019 Oscar Nominees Looked Like Behind The Scenes | Movies Insider

Off we go. Narrator: This year’s Oscars won’t include a Popular Film category, like
the Academy once proposed. But, many of your favorites
will still be there. Campaigning for an Oscar
takes a lot of work but nothing like the work that went into actually making the movie. From groundbreaking visual effects to daring stunts, to layers of makeup there’s a lot to admire from
this year’s Oscar nominees. Here’s what 2019 Oscar nominees looked like behind the scenes. Few movies in the last decade
have altered our culture as much as Black Panther did in 2018. Its showing at the Oscars proves that it took blockbuster
filmmaking to new heights. The movie involves a lot
of demanding stunt work from the cast for each
intense fight scene. Yes, Danai Gurira really did use a wig as a defense mechanism.
And yes, Chadwick Boseman did kick a guy across a field,
with the help of a few wires. Meanwhile, Michael B.
Jordan went to set every day and was covered in around
3,000 prosthetic dots. Makeup artist Joel Harlow told us the fake scars were made to withstand the actor’s more physical scenes as well as the ones where he got wet. And a studio in Atlanta was convincingly transformed into Wakanda. That space came complete
with bustling city streets and a waterfall that would
become Warrior Falls. Horror movies are often
overlooked during awards season but this box office and critical success was too impressive for
the Oscars to ignore. While the movie produced
scares from its lack of sound the ways it did use sound were impressive. The film’s sound team used a strange array of objects to make Foley sounds. Crab legs perfectly captured the sound of the monsters walking. A combination of celery
and romaine lettuce would make the sound of an ear opening. To figure out the monsters’ spine-chilling echolocation sounds, the
team did some experimenting and discovered the best way to do it was by tasering a patch of grapes and then slowing the sound down. There’ll always be a place for
period pieces at the Oscars. The historical epic, centering
around Mary Queen of Scots and Queen Elizabeth I,
and starring Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan, is
notable for its costumes makeup, hairpieces, and sets. The movie was shot on location around the United Kingdom and Scotland. The stars acted with a
literal army of extras. The Favourite plays a
bit more fast and loose with history, but it
still flawlessly immerses the audience in 18th-century
British aristocratic life. The costumes and wigs are
eye-popping and elaborate. The movie was shot at
Hatfield House in England. They stripped many of the
beautiful rooms in the palace and built a massive bath,
as well as Abigail’s room. The reception of First
Man, which chronicles Neil Armstrong’s trip
to the moon, was mixed. But one thing nobody can deny is that it’s visually stunning. Its set pieces are as
historically accurate as possible. Production designer Nathan Crowley told us that the lunar module and space capsule were built to scale. Meanwhile, the Saturn V
model seen in the movie was actually just 14 feet tall. That’s about 1/25th the
size of the actual rocket. Some of the models could even move. In some scenes, to convincingly
replicate zero gravity they put the camera below the actors. A technique that has been used
in many movies set in space. The moon landing sequence,
which is shot in IMAX will actually make you feel
like you’re walking on the moon. Some parts of this sequence
were shot in a quarry. Other parts were shot on a very convincing-looking soundstage. The stunts were equally impressive. Gosling allowed himself to be launched out of a capsule, and
then got dragged around in the movie’s most daring stunt. What sets A Star is Born apart is that all the concert scenes were filmed live and Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga are always performing together. Even for two people as talented as them they still had to rehearse a lot. A big part of the
production was sound editing which required layering multiple sounds in a single scene, including the vocals. All of which were sung live. Wes Anderson’s second
stop-motion animated feature was one of the best
animated movies of 2018. It’s staggering just to look at the numbers behind the movie. Isle of Dogs animators were working with around 1,105 puppets on set. A single sushi making
sequence from the movie took six to eight months to bring to life. Animators, meanwhile, had to
use pins and wooden sticks to move the dogs’ eyeballs and lips around to make the characters move realistically. The animators even painstakingly
moved the fur around to give the impression that dog’s fur was blowing in the wind. Stop-motion animation requires
faces to get changed out for each different mood and emotion. Andy Gent, the head of the
movie’s puppet department told us that the character’s
fur made this process much more difficult than usual. Marvel’s most ambitious movie yet didn’t quite get the same
awards love as Black Panther but it still managed
to make an appearance. The biggest standout technical aspect of the latest Avengers was Josh Brolin’s towering performance as Thanos. The actor performed in
a motion capture suit for a character who would
then be created using CGI. Because Thanos is so
tall, Brolin often acted with an object on top of his head. That way, actors would know where exactly they should be looking. Motion-capture technology
has gotten so good that Thanos felt real. Honestly, it’s about time
the Academy starts taking motion-capture performances
more seriously. The long-awaited sequel involved a cast of very committed actors. Meanwhile, production designers created a very accurate version of
1930s London inside a studio. For this shot, in which Mary
Poppins falls into a bathtub they built a giant slide beneath the tub that Emily Blunt had to
slide down backwards.

  1. Next, can you show me how subnautica bakes the noises for the creatures lol (I’ve actually wondered this for a long time XD)

    makes not bakes

  2. black panther did not change our culture. how exactly did it change our culture? now there are black action figures of superheros? we already had that. now that the hype for the movie has died down, i still completely respect the amazing feat of making a majority black cast and crew movie so successful, but how has our culture changed? Moonlight, fruitvale station, If Beale Street Could talk are just a few examples of majority black cast/crew movies that were fairly successful, and showed the real plight and actually plausible examples of the tribulations of black Americans, yet we still say black panther changed our culture? it was an ok movie, not really groundbreaking storytelling-wise, it was boring to me, possibly just because every time i leave the house I'm punched in the face by a new superhero movie coming out, but despite the movie not being particularly compelling storytelling-wise, it still Doesn't nearly capture the plight of African Americans the same way other much better films have in the past, as much as i would like to call it a boundary breaking film, it simply is not. Some of the cartoons they put in the movie looked pretty good, but that's just what they were, exploding cartoons, loud spaceships and shit flying all over. To me it was not something that makes you reconsider your world view, most people agree encroaching on a previously untouched and unharmed civilization like the fictional one in Black Panther is a bad thing, nobody's jaw dropped from the script of this movie. Moonlight, however, i would consider to be actually impactful on our culture, as well as fruitvale station, a film that took the outrage already brewing in this country about a real case of horrible horrible racism, and translated it into art, to spread the message that something must be done about these injustices in the country. Yet a half-cartoon movie with a contrived and recycled plot, lackluster character arcs, and a score I don't even remember, gets nominated for an oscar and gets praised as a film that changed our culture? as far as i know, culture is the same now as it was before black panther came out, now that film is part of pop culture, but im sure black people would relate much more to genuine and heartfelt and passionate films such as other films by Ryan Coogler and films by Barry Jenkins than they would this film. If you like Black Panther, that's absolutely fine, and more power to you, but lets focus on the real issues, and the works of art aimed towards opening our eyes to the real horrors of our world's injustices, rather than this film that nobody will be able to remember the plot of within the next few years. Its a wonderful thing this cast and crew had this opportunity to make this film, and the fact that the majority of them were african american is outstanding, but the writing was not good. The music was as generic and forgettable as any other marvel film, slow down, stop shitting out 3 movies a year, make something that holds a mirror up to society to show society how ugly its many little blemishes are. And then offer up a solution, or your personal idea of a solution, dont just make shit go boom and ask for an oscar. Many hours of work and dedication were put into Black Panther, I wish all that same hard work and dedication went into a story that would actually impact our way of life, in any way. Not this. This is simply not that.
