Toni Collette has made up for all the missed award shows appearances earlier this month, as she was front and center at yesterday’s first day of the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, promoting the world-premiere of “Dream Horse”.

Besides the premiere for “Dream Horse”, Toni was spotted at the IMDb Studios, TheWrap Studio and the WarnerMedia Lounge.

Toni Collette is returning to Park City this year with Dream Horse, an inspiring underdog film based on a true story, as Entertainment Weekly reports. The Oscar-nominated actress, who won a Critics’ Choice Award earlier this year for her turn in Netflix’s Unbelievable, stars as Jan Vokes, a bartender struggling to find meaning in her life, in the anticipated Sundance premiere. One night, a chance encounter with an arrogant customer, Howard Davies (Damian Lewis), a former racehorse syndicate leader, inspires her to take on a new challenge. Despite her parents’ skepticism, Jan recruits neighbors and barflies alike into a crazy scheme to contribute to a community fund and breed a racehorse. EW can debut an exclusive clip from the film in which Collette’s Jan and a team around her watch the Dream Horse in action. “It’s got spirit,” Jan is told. “Character.” “Making Dream Horse was a truly wonderful experience,” Collette tells EW. “It has the biggest heart of any film I have ever been a part of. I can’t wait to see it with an audience at Sundance.” Directed by Euros Lyn (Kiri), Dream Horse takes the subject of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival feature Dark Horse. The film marks the Park City return of Sundance regular Collette; some of her biggest past hits at the festival include Oscar winner Little Miss Sunshine and A24 sensation Hereditary.

The awards season has unfolded over the last 2 1/2 weeks, and while Toni Collette was a steady nominee for “Unbelievable” at all three big ceremonies, there wasn’t much for us to behold, picture-wise. She attended the Golden Globe Awards as a nominee for Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, but lost to Patricia Arquette. At the Critics Choice Awards a week later, she won the award for Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie Made for Television – but not only did she not attend the ceremony, they didn’t even present the category properly. Since the Critics Choice suffers from too many categories, the result was simply presented on a screen, among other not-so-important ones like “Best Foreign Language Film”. At Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards telecast, she lost in the Female Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series to Michelle Williams for “Fosse/Verdon” and did, once again, not attend. So, no pictures :-( What matters is the success of “Unbelievable” and the recognition at these ceremonies, nevermind what you think of them. Video clips from all three shows have been added to the video archive.

According to multiple sources, including Screen Rant, Guillermo del Toro has quietly started filming his new movie, Nightmare Alley. Even before The Shape of Water opened, del Toro was already working with writer Kim Morgan on an adaptation of William Lindsay Gresham’s ’40s-set noir novel Nightmare Alley. Gresham’s story was previously turned into a movie by Edmund Goulding in 1947 (a year after it was published), but del Toro and Morgan are said to be drawing primarily from the original book for their upcoming film. And although there hasn’t been an official announcement, it appears shooting has already gotten underway. Nightmare Alley tells the tale of a con man who teams up with a carnival mentalist to swindle people out of their money. Bradley Cooper and Cate Blanchett are playing the sleazy pair in the film, with Rooney Mara, Toni Collette, and Willem Dafoe costarring alongside Ron Perlman, Richard Jenkins and Michael Shannon. As for del Toro, Nightmare Alley will be the first movie he’s made that doesn’t include any supernatural or sci-fi elements. It will be interesting to see how that affects his storytelling approach, considering what a huge role the fantastical has played in del Toro’s filmography so far. It’s safe to assume Nightmare Alley will be as visually rich as his previous work, especially with Crimson Peak and The Shape of Water cinematographer Dan Laustsen serving as del Toro’s DP again. But with a cast full of heavy-hitters, the movie should provide some meaty adult drama and strong characterization to go with its stylish atmosphere.

Rian Johnson has received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay for “Knives Out”. The darkly funny whodunnit, bringing in over $250 million worldwide, was penned by Johnson is what fueled it as one of this year’s highest-rated films. It was nominated for Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards, among many others, but today it earned one of the highest honors — an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Script. A nod duly earned. Featuring an all-star ensemble cast including Daniel Craig, Ana de Armas, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, Toni Collette, and Christopher Plummer, the tale of the Thrombey/Drysdale family succeeded beyond expectations. Johnson’s complicated, twisting plot guided by these superstar performers was a catalyst for greatness, and we can only hope the rumors of a sequel featuring Craig’s savvy Southern detective Benoit Blanc are true. Knives Out was a blast from its classic mystery music beginning to the iconic final shot, with the rewatches being just as delightful and amusing as you discover the trail of clues Johnson left in plain sight all along the way. You can tune in to see if Rian Johnson, and all the other nominees, bring home the gold on February 9 at 8 p.m. EST live on ABC. Check out the full list of Academy Award nominees here!
