Re: Anonymous Academy Members Ballots

It could be Knight if he is now living in L.A. either temporarily or permanently as he would have to have access to all those parties he keeps running into Malek at. He could have started as a member of the writers branch and then asked to be moved to the directors branch. I think that's allowed. He...

I don't think it's Hytner. It's either an American or a transplanted Brit. As far as I can tell, Hytner is still centered in London.

Deadline is reporting that McDormand and Rockwell will present Best Actress and Oldman and Janney will present Best Actor. No word yet on who will be presenting the supporting awards.

Re: Anonymous Academy Members Ballots

Bragging about being a director who is friends with Viggo Mortensen who has worked with Olivia Colman is not exactly covering your tracks. Someone has probably already figured out who he is just as I and many others have figured out some of the past interviewees. Sandra Bullock and Keir Dullea, for ...

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

Use a VPN program like IPVanish, which will let you access a country’s websites as if you’re in that country. Choose a USA server and watch it on abc. That won't work without a U.S. cable subscription and then only in select cities. Per the Hollywood Reporter: The Oscars will air in the US on ABC a...

I think you're out of luck, but check out this list on oscars.org. to see if there is any way you can pick up a signal from somewhere else:

June Lockhart played Lassie?

I was scrolling through one of those on-line things about old actors and actresses who are still with us and came across this gem about June Lockhart who made her film debut in the 1938 version of A Christmas Carol in scenes with her parents, Gene and Kathleen Lockhart as the Cratchits. She became m...

As The New York Times reports, Williams — ...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Supporting Actor

I don't know why Fox or Fox Searchlight hasn't done more to promote Can You Ever Forgive Me . Apparently they put all their promotional money into The Favourite with nothing left over, unlike last year when they gave an equal push to Three Billboards and The Shape of Water . The Favourite is slated ...

Re: Categories One-By-One: Costume Design

This comes down to a close race between Black Panther and The Favourite.

Black Panther has the most innovative designs, The Favourite has the most gorgeous. Gorgeous generally wins out. I think Sandy Powell will add to her collection for that.

Re: Categories One by One: Best Actor

To be fair, I haven't seen Vice and have no desire to do so, although as an Oscar completist I will have to at some point, but I'm not going to spend money on it. It will have to be on cable or a streaming service I already have a subscription to. I was a fan of Christian Bale as far back as Spielbe...

Re: A Star is Born reviews

Cooper's version doesn't reach the lofty heights of the Gaynor-March and Garland-Mason versions, but it's lightyears ahead of the Streisand-Kristofferson version. The screenplay is well written, but Cooper's line readings and whiskey-soaked singing voice take some getting used to. Lady Gaga, though...

Make of this what you will: https://twitter.com/peterknegt/status/1098033983919742976 I did see something about having major stars appear as segment hosts, so if they're doing that she would certainly be a good choice for one of them, but I doubt after all the brouhaha they would have a host for th...

Re: Oscar Predictions Contest

It was obvious that they added Finney to the BAFTA montage, but I wouldn't have expected to see him show up first. I kept thinking who could possibly be bigger than Finney to show up last, having forgotten about Reynolds. Oscar, though, nominated Finney five times and Reynolds once. One would think ...
