Unless I missed someone, you and I were two of only five who didn't predict a nomination for James Franco, the others being Criddic, CalWilliam and Franz Ferdinand.

Re: 2017 Oscar Nominations

So the Academy decided to play safe and dissed James Franco. A relief because I was not looking forward to his film at all. I was wondering ho much of the cheering in the room was for Daniel Kaluuya's name being announced versus that going from Day-Lewis to Kaluuya meant Franco was being passed over.

Re: 2017 Oscar Nominations

Complete list is here: http://www.cinemasight.com/90th-oscars-academy-awards-nominations/#more-108397 These are very difficult to read. The background overwhelms the text. Someone should post them in this thread. It must be your settings. The background is pure white, but here they are: BEST PICTUR...

I didn't mind the mugging as much as her inability to pronounce names, especially Daniel Kaluuya's.

Carol Lombard and William Powell were nominated for (and appeared in) My Man Godfrey after their marriage ended.

Yes, of course!

Re: 2017 Oscar Nominations

Biggest surprise to me is the strength of Phantom Thread. Second biggest surprise is Three Billboards doing better in the tech awards nominations than thought, but missing out on Best Director. Biggest disappointment has to be Call Me By Your Name missing out on Direction and both supporting actors....

Re: Nominations Announcement

Maybe it's Serkis, not Haddish, who has the connection to the nominations with a planned announcement that he will receive an honorary Oscar at the Oscars (not next November) for his motion capture work.

Re: Best Supporting Actress 1972

don't think Berlin has played anything other than that same character in anything. This is obviously an old post, but I would recommend checking out Jeannie Berlin in The Night Of which starred Riz Ahmed and John Tutturro on HBO last year. Berlin is excellent as the DA and has a very powerful scene...

Re: SAG Winners

The real-life mother of Tonya Harding disputes the characterization. Well, I mean, of course she does! I don't under the Renée Zellweger comparison on a performance level. Both Janney and Zellweger's performances are exaggerations. Here's one of several news articles on the real mother: https://www...

Re: SAG Winners

Janney's performance is fictional, too. The real-life mother of Tonya Harding disputes the characterization. Janney is about as true to life as Renée Zellweger in 2003's Cold Mountain who won at the Globes, SAG and Oscars after Shohreh Aghdashloo won the triple crown of critics awards (N.Y., L.A. an...

Re: SAG Winners

The show itself, however, was one of the better ones. Kristen Bell's dig at Melania Trump's lack of follow-through on her promise to fight cyberbullying was so subtle I doubt many actually got it, but it was hilarious if you did. Rita Moreno brightened things up considerably with her presentation to...
