Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

Here's the reason behind the nonsense: "ABC, who is presenting the Oscars (and is owned by Disney), has a sneak preview of a new series, Whiskey Cavalier, planned for after the show. That would be start time of no sooner than 11pm EST on a Sunday night." Wonder what time that would be star...

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

I can't find the quote, but supposedly it had something to do with forcing him to open his mouth and throat wider.

Freddie himself did think his teeth were part of what helped his range. That I did find a quote for:

Re: Anonymous Academy Members Ballots

The writer for the Times piece betrays his own prejudices with comments like: "One vinegary older voter compared superhero films to “the stuff that oozes out of dumpsters behind fast-food restaurants.” Then he confessed that he hadn’t yet seen “Black Panther." Eek." It's wrong for vot...

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

That's largely true. As per IMDb.'s trivia page: "Freddie Mercury's vocal range stretched to three octaves, though it was rumored that it spanned four. In 2016, a group of biophysicists and medical researchers concluded that his vocal chords moved faster than the average singer's. His vibrato m...

Whatever the problem was, things seem to be working now. I received an e-mail notification of the response.

b]BTW, Magilla[/b]: Did you get my private message yesterday? I'd have expected a reply by now, since I specifically asked for confirmation you received it. If not, it means something's wrong with either how I'm sending private messages, or how the board is processing them. I have three messages si...

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

Here's a POSSIBLE preview on how they may do the "commercial break" categories. Glenn Weiss, who directed the Tony Awards and is now also directing the Oscars, has cited the Tony Awards as the basis for how they're gonna do the cut categories. Someone uploaded the entire Tony show from a ...

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

I came very close to citing Susan Hayward as Jane Froman in With a Song in My Heart which is another musical in which the on-stage performances, not the screenplay, make the film. I'd also throw in Larry Parks in The Jolson Story and Doris Day as Ruth Etting in Love Me or Leave Me as unforgettable p...

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

The film isn't terribly profound, but it's highly enjoyable for what it is - a typical Hollywood tribute to a great artist with an emphasis on the joy he or she brought to the world. As such it works. It is, after all, already the highest grossing biographical musical of all time. It's highly infect...

Some of the names added today have had impressive careers, but most of them are primarily either TV or action movie stars. How in hell are they "Hollywood luminaries"? Monday, February 11, 2019 - 07:30 Javier Bardem, Angela Bassett, Chadwick Boseman, Emilia Clarke, Laura Dern, Samuel L. Ja...

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

It seems to me that this is just an interim measure. Shunt four categories off the air this year, and it no one complains about it, make it six next year and so on until they've gotten the show down to two hours. If they're going to do it, they should do it like the Tonys do, give out those awards p...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Supporting Actress

I think King will win based on performance. Weisz would have a shot if she hadn't won before, but she has. Adams could get a sympathy vote, I suppose, but she's still young with presumably lots of chances before her to get out of the stigma of being the "most nominated living loser" if Clo...
