So what’s next for the winners?
They’ve won gold, kissed their loved ones and partied all night. Now what? USA TODAY’s
Andrea Mandell has the scoop on what this year’s Oscar winners have set their sights on next.
MARK RYLANCE BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR ‘BRIDGE OF SPIES’
Rylance bested Sylvester Stallone in the first major upset of Oscar night. The three-time Tony Award-winning actor will reteam with Steven Spielberg on this summer’s fantasy adventure The
BFG, a Roald Dahl adaptation about a girl who encounters a big, friendly giant played by Rylance.
ALICIA VIKANDER BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS ‘THE DANISH GIRL’
You’ll be seeing a lot more of Vikander over the next year.
The Danish Girl winner has been busy filming Jason Bourne with Matt Damon during awards season (and we’d bet she’ll be in the next trailer). She’ll wrap that project in March, then release the period drama Tulip Fever later this year (this time, instead of playing an artist, she’s the subject of oil works by Christoph Waltz’s character). Finally, The Light
Between Oceans, about a couple raising a baby rescued at sea, is expected late this year. Fun fact: She met beau Michael Fassbender on that shoot.
TOM MCCARTHY BEST SCREENPLAY ‘SPOTLIGHT’
Having directed this year’s best picture winner and with a win for original screenplay on his hands, Tom McCarthy (who wrote the film with Josh Singer) is heading to Netflix. This summer, he’s directing a new series with Selena Gomez “based on a book called 13
Reasons Why, which deals with teen suicide and bullying,” he told USA TODAY on the red carpet. How did that project come about? “They sent me a script — it’s meaningful material wrapped in a great story. I know I’m going to make another movie, and that takes some time, so this is something I could jump into and be creative and hopefully have some fun.”
ASIF KAPADIA BEST DOCUMENTARY ‘AMY’
The British filmmaker is switching gears from documentaries (he’s also behind the acclaimed racing documentary Senna) to release the World War I love story Ali & Nino, which Kapadia premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. “It’s important to keep the audience on their toes,” he told us last month. “You can’t just keep repeating yourself.”
