Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Paul Ryan has forced out the House Chaplain, a Catholic priest who has held the position for seven years, for saying in a prayer that "lawmakers should be fair to all Americans" seen as siding with the Democrats, and for inviting a Muslim to offer a prayer before the chambers. https://nypo...

Re: Best Cinematography 1996

Thanks you, Sabin, for posting this. 1996 was not a great year for cinematography. I can't think of anything that was egregiously overlooked. In fact, I can't think of a substitute for any of the nominees. Michael Collins and Evita were well photographed as was The English Patient , but, I was more ...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2017

As I said in my DVD review, it's not a great movie but there's greatness in it. As a biography of P.T. Barnum, it's sorely lacking, but as an ode to show business, it works. Unlike the incredibly over-rated La La Land , all the actors here can sing and sing they do. It's really infectious. My great-...

R.I.P. Sammy Williams

This one was under-reported. Sammy Williams was best known for his Tony-winning role in A Chorus Line but made an impact on screen in God Told To , dropped out of show business in 1978, but resurfaced thirty years later and was still acting when he died on March 18th. https://www.usatoday.com/story/...

Re: Best Actress 2017

I'm waiting for May 1st the day it's released on Blu-ray and DVD, to see Diane Kruger in In the Fade . In the meantime, Emma Stone in Battle of the Sexes gets my fifth slot behind McDormand, Ronan, Hawkins and Bening over Jessica Chastain in Molly's Game and Michelle Williams in All That Money Can B...

Best Cinematography 1995

That Braveheart won any Oscars was mindboggling then, and is mindboggling now. All that blue paint in all those confusing battle scenes must have been tough to film, which is probably what they were rewarding over the film's look. Oscar wasn't alone in its extravagance. ASC and BAFTA also awarded it...

So, Michael Cohen has three clients - Trump, Broidy and Sean Hannity, as unholy a trinity as ever there was.

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

LOL. Most of the Daily Kos reaction was over the comment about Pelosi f*cking up the cafeteria again, taking away their freedom fries and making them eat tofu. Mueller is supposed to be working on his report which means the vote on impeachment could come soon. No way to tell right now how these scar...

Best Cinematography 1994

Well, this sucks. I had gotten to literally the last word of a rather long post and hit a wrong key, making it all disappear. Here goes again. This is one of those years in which I think BAFTA got it more right than either ASC or AMPAS, although all three somehow managed not to nominate the year's b...

Re: Best Supporting Actress 1980

1987 - Norma Aleandro, Anne Archer, Olympia Dukakis, Anne Ramsey, Ann Sothern Ramsey and Sothern are deceased. Aleandro (81), Dukakis (86) and Archer (70) are still active, although Aleandro is pretty much limited to Argentina and neither Dukakis whose husband, actor Louis Zorich, died in January, n...
