Re: Glenda Jackson back on Broadway as "King Lear"

Wow. King Lear as Shakespeare's worst play? Even as a contrarian take, I find that really challenging.

Re: The 20th Annual Who'll Be Back?

After the 2011 Oscars, Tee analogized Close to Scorsese - after getting her passion project through the oscar season, maybe she'd relax and get that precious oscar (and honestly, how sorry could one be for someone with three Emmys and three Tonys.

Ordinary People was tied for last of the best picture nominees of 1980 as did Annie Hall in 1977.

Re: Categories One-by-One: Actress

Gotta love autocorrect.

I don't get why Nathaniel is so invested in that narrative, re: The Wife/Close. I could basically take or leave Close's career, but the stans are, as usual, annoying.

Categories One by One: Best Actor

Otherwise known as what the hell is happening and why? My confusion about best actor is matched by my refusal to believe in reality. Reality tells us Rami Malek is winning. And honestly, I should be pleased. I really like him as an actor. I mean, he’s memorable even with a bit role in a film like Th...
