Siegel’s career in documentaries spans more than 20 years and was highlighted by “Trials of Muhammad Ali,” which premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival and aired on PBS’ “Independent Lens.” The series followed the late boxer’s struggles outside the ring as he converted to Islam, changed his name and fought to overturn the prison sentence he received for refusing to serve in the Vietnam War.
Most notable is Regina King, favored to be a frontrunner for the best supporting actress Oscar for her performance in If Beale Street Could Talk, who was shut out of the equivalent race at the SAG awards. Her acclaimed film, from Moonlight director Barry Jenkins, didn’t receive a single nomination.
Her category was full of shockers, including Margot Robbie for her role as Queen Elizabeth in Mary Queen of Scots, which up until now hasn’t received any awards love.

After starring in this Summer's biggest romantic hit, Crazy Rich Asians, the Fresh Off the Boat actress is reportedly doubling down on the genre, according to new rumors about her next film role. In an as-yet-unnamed romantic comedy directed by Glow star Kimmy Gatewood and executive produced by Elizabeth Banks, Wu would play a "charmingly chaotic woman who has to get her life together when she becomes pregnant with two babies from two different men."
Um, say what now?!
Yes, apparently Wu's character, if she does sign onto the film, will live out one of my actual nightmares when she endures a double pregnancy (though I'm sure her journey will be far less traumatizing).
