La bombe à retardement du Président Trump — Stormy Daniels
Le 18 septembre, le quotidien britannique The Guardian a publié quelques extraits de Full Disclosure ("Transparence totale"), le livre à paraître de Stormy Daniels .

The film had its world premiere at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and has toured more than 70 prestigious international and national film festivals. "Very proud and to select this film and send it to the Oscars", jury member Anant Mahadevan was quoted by The Indian Express as saying. Helmed by Rima Das, the film revolves around a 10-year-old girl belonging to a remote village in Assam who aspires to become a guitarist. Her only assistants were a group of six pre-teens whose story she tells in the film, which is now being shown in film festivals across the world.

In the film, Dhunu's family that consists of her widowed mother Basanti and her elder brother Manabendra, represents the life of the villagers.

Several commercially successful films like "Padmaavat" and "Raazi" and recent releases "Love Sonia" and "Manto", were among the 29 films viewed by the committee to arrive at a decision, which was unanimously in favour of 'Village Rockstars'. However, the Rajkummar Rao, Anjali Patil and Pankaj Tripathi starrer didn't make it to the final nominations. The gala is scheduled to be held on February 24, 2019. Newton was among 92 entries for the category, and only nine films have been shortlisted to move to the next round of voting by the Academy Award members.
