Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

Tee, this isn't the first year they've had the 7-nominee slates. True, but this year I think they've refined their selections to a point that anything or anyone not mentioned is going to have a hard time pulling off an Oscar nod. This really feels as if it is a list of preliminary nominations from ...

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

Of course the past shouldn't be hidden, and for public personalities, that would be difficult to do no matter what, but we're talking about social media here. Social media is supposed to be a reflection of what the person is like today. Just as you night prominently display photos of old friends in ...

Re: New York Film Critics Circle Awards

The runners-up are either still listed on the Wikipedia page or were reinstated.

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

An interesting replacement being floated about is Tiffany Haddish. Jeffrey Wells disagrees. He says "Tiffany Haddish doesn’t seem to know movies all that well. Remember how she said she decides what to see by what her friends at the beauty salon tell her? She’s not a Movie Catholic, and the Os...

MSNBC just called him "The Manchurian President" which might be a better title for this thread.

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

OscarGuy wrote If they want to appeal to younger audiences, then they could get someone like The Rock or even Justin Timberlake. Dwayne Johnson was the first person I thought of when I was thinking about who should host. He's probably the biggest star in the world, he's got good enough comic timing...

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

Why doesn't the Academy vet these things? If they do fire him, who will want to come in and pick up the pieces? Why in the modern era do they always have to have a comedian, most of whom aren't funny anyway? They need to bring in the heavy hitters. They need Hollywood royalty of the likes of Tom Han...

Re: Golden Globe Awards

Alphabetization question for the season: does Black Panther go before or after BlackKklansman? (Today it was listed before, but it seems like it should be after, no?) And Lady Gaga really should be listed AFTER Nicole Kidman, not before right? (Her last name isn't Gaga.) BlackKklansman is one word,...

Re: Golden Globe Awards

Have the Globes ever been this different from the critics? The nominees are mostly all major films as opposed to minor arthouse films promoted by the various critics groups. I thought they might pass over NYFC winner Regina Hall, but Ethen Hawke's omission is a surprise. Good news for Willem Dafoe, ...

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

I've never seen any of his movies nor do I have any inclination to. I've seen him, but can't recall where. Probably in one of his many TV appearances. According to IMDb., he introduced a song at the 2016 Oscars, but I have no memory of that. What I recall about him are some asinine exchanges with an...

Re: AFI Top Ten

I cannot for the life of me get the acclaim for Eighth Grade , an extremely annoying film about YouTube worship that begins with one of the most excruciating monologues in film history and meanders from scene to scene with nothing to say that hasn't been said a thousand times before in much better f...

Re: New York Film Critics Circle Awards

What Oscar voters like the most is a good backstory. Sometimes that means awarding a performance or a film in a category that hasn't been honored much or at all. Sometimes it means going along with the individual who wins the most precursors. When there is no favorite, other factors emerge, especial...

Re: New York Film Critics Circle Awards

From Regina Hall's Wikipedia entry: In 2010, at age 40, Hall unsuccessfully tried to become a nun after a bad break-up. Hall had previously wanted to become a nun at the age of 14. She was refused for being too old, as the cut off age is 39. Guess we know who Damien would have been rooting hard for...
