ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD – Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Quentin Tarantino and Margot Robbie Attend Cannes Premiere
Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino’s ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD had it’s world premiere at the 72nd annual Cannes Film Festival. Check out the highlights below.
Quentin Tarantino’s ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD visits 1969 Los Angeles, where everything is changing, as TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) make their way around an industry they hardly recognize anymore. The ninth film from the writer-director features a large ensemble cast and multiple storylines in a tribute to the final moments of Hollywood’s golden age.
Variety says the film has officially entered the upcoming Oscar race:
“Leonardo DiCaprio seems sure to be nominated for his starring work as a fading 1950s Western star as will Brad Pitt as DiCaprio’s longtime stuntman. There’s no reason why Tarantino couldn’t once again pick up noms for best picture, director and original screenplay.
The director is no stranger to nominations, with his films having earned more than two dozen over the years.
Winning is another story. Only a handful of the noms have turned into Oscar wins.
Could “Once Upon a Time” be Tarantino’s ticket to sweeping the Oscars? It’s too soon to tell. It’s only May and we have a lot of time between now and the end of awards season.”
