A Look At What These Oscar Winners Are Up To Next

The big winners at the 90th Academy Awards are still basking in their golden glory.

Some made history – Jordan Peele became the first person of colour to take home the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, while Guillermo del Toro’s “The Shape Of Water” became the first ever sci-fi flick to win Best Picture.

But the firsts didn’t stop there. Gary Oldman took home his first Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of iconic British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, in “Darkest Hour”. Standout performances from both Allison Janney in “I, Tonya” and Sam Rockwell in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” each earned them their first Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor statuettes respectively.

Frances McDormand picked up her second Best Actress award, and used her speech call on the film industry to further promote inclusion.

As the dust settles from film’s biggest night, fans are left wondering what upcoming projects these Oscar winners are slated to work on next.

Jordan Peele is returning to television as one of the executive producers behind the new TBS comedy “The Last O.G.” – starring Tracy Morgan and Tiffany Haddish – and has also been tapped to produce a reboot of “The Twilight Zone” for CBS.

Peele isn’t completely leaving the big screen behind however; he’s collaborating with director Spike Lee on “Black Klansman” – a film focused on a black police officer who somehow infiltrates a local Colorado chapter of the Klu Klux Klan.

Guillermo del Toro’s next project is “Pacific Rim Uprising”. While del Toro directed the original adaptation of the popular comic books back in 2013, he’s credited as a producer in the second installment of the franchise. Currently, the film is slated for release later this month.

Janney will continue to star in her CBS sitcom “Mom”, which recently celebrated the airing of its 100th episode.

Gary Oldman will appear alongside Gerard Butler in the action thriller “Hunter Killer”.

While, Frances McDormand will lend her voice to Wes Anderson’s latest animated film, “Isle Of Dogs”.

Finally, Rockwell has a variety of films in the works, including “BLAZE” – an independent, Ethan Hawke-directed biopic based on the life of little known country blues singer Blaze Foley – and “Backseat”, a film surrounding former Vice President of the United States Dick Cheney and his time in office. Rockwell will play George W. Bush, and will no doubt be seeking the advice of producer Will Ferrell – whose impression of Bush Jr. became one of his most memorable “Saturday Night Live” characters.
