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. Apparently, if the teeth gnashing over at The Film E...

Re: 91st Oscars: Picture

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

Re: 91st Oscars: Picture

Hmmm.... I'd definitely place Green Book alongside Cimarron and Crash in terms of absolute worst.

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.

Re: Categories One by One: Best Actor

Also, I just found out it's "pole" position, not "poll position."

Wonder how many times I've gotten that wrong :D

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...

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

That's right, flipp. You did make an accurate prediction. However, you almost made an inaccurate prediction and therefore cannot be pleased about what you got correct. Thus spaketh the prophet.

Re: SAG Predictions

I'm intrigued by the idea that not having an individually excellent performance (aka, not in the top five of the year) automatically excludes a film from being a great ensemble.

Re: If Beale Street Could Talk reviews

If that was for me, I don't think I was. It's not so much about collusion, but I do think there is a degree to which the proscribed narrative takes hold and the centrality of the Oscars and the Oscar race to the discussion.
