Re: PLEASE READ: My Fantasy Oscar League

a) Too soon to tell, though I don’t think A Star is Born s winning for similar reasons. b) Definitely The Favourite – I anticipate it having the most nominations from AMPAS. I can see If Beale Street Could Talk doing well with the critics (Regina King and Coleman Domingo especially), though maybe th...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

1.4 million people in Florida just got the right to vote back. That's pretty huge. As for Sabin's question re: the new normal - I can see it, to be honest. Especially since these midterms aren't the ironclad repudiation of Trump many of us craved. The future is looking pretty challenging for this pl...

I enjoy reading the thread, though I know nothing about baseball.

Re: First Man reviews

I really liked it - if not quite as much as dws, way more than BJ.

That said, it doesn't even appear that it'll do Bridge of Spies numbers, which is disappointing, though having seen it, makes some sense.

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

I did not watch the press conference. I am allergic to Trump's voice. Was it as bad as twitter is making it out to be?

Re: Best Cinematography 2015

Okay, now is when I actually turned against Lubeszki. The Revenant’s Oscar success (12 nominations?) was one of the more unwelcome aspects of 2015’s cinematic year. His work here is solid in its own right, but also completely at odds with the story being told. I don’t understand how The Hateful 8 go...

Re: Honorary Oscars Wish Lists and Speculation

I still more enjoy seeing the long-denied get their due -- Deborah Kerr, Myrna Loy, Angela Lansbury, Donald Sutherland -- than seeing, say, Warren Beatty get yet another award late in life. and I'll piggy-back one thing onto Mister Tee's post, all of which I'd agree with... The Honorary Oscar certa...

Re: Honorary Oscars Wish Lists and Speculation

Nathaniel, from TFE, always gets down on Oscars given to previous winners. To me, if an actor's total career is more than the sum of it's parts and it's a strong career, that should be celebrated, regardless of if they're an oscar winner or not. I get the reason behind wanting to celebrate the under...

Re: Major Changes to Oscar Telecast

Okay, since I tossed this question out there, I should respond before it gets completely stale (after all, it’s not happening right now anyway). Sasha Stone wrote a screed that you should read, if only to make what I say below sound more reasonable. a) I’ve not bothered watching the last three Oscar...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Sorry, my question was more literal: Can a Vice-President be impeached and is it the same process as getting rid of a President.

The President does not have the authority to fire the Vice President.


How does that happen?

Re: At Eternity's Gate reviews

While the historical aspect always convinces me to give films the benefit of the doubt re: age, I actually don't think Dafoe looks THAT young. Looking through imdb to see who was born the same year as Dafoe is fun though. I've joked in the past that Hollywood wrecked my ability to tell how a teenage...
