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...

Re: Best Cinematography 1993

Voted for Schindler's List . The Piano and Farewell My Concubine were also worthy contenders. In fact, I'd go far as to say the cinematography was the strongest component of both those films. My choices for the other two slots would be The Remains of the Day and The Age of Innocence , but some of th...

Re: Original Song Singers

It doesn't make much sense. The theme from The High and the Mighty was whistled in all prints except the one theatre in L.A. where the lyrics were sung in order to qualify for its nomination. "Mona Lisa" is sung in Italian in Captain Carey, U.S.A. as a warning to Alan Ladd that the Nazis a...

Best Cinematography 1993

We're back!

I suspect the actual winner is one most of us will agree with, but what about the nominees? What should have been nominated and wasn't?

Re: Ceremony Help Again

A bit of trivia mentioned in Inside Oscar is that due to some dispute, there was no national radio broadcast, just a local one. It could be that those awards were presented outside of the broadcast which may have been limited to the time mandated by the station. If so, it's likely there was no cerem...
