Re: Reactions

Is Marina de Tavira the first supporting nominee from a foreign film since Valentina Cortese for Day for Night? I’m really happy for her nomination. I thought she was excellent in Roma. Sam Rockwell’s might be a “honeymoon nomination” but at least his performance in Vice is an actual supporting one...

This seems like a year where if it could happen, it would happen here. I mean, it would require a collection of films that truly feel ahead of the res...

Re: Final Nominations Predictions

It's definitely cultural/generational. The film itself is about the same level as March of the Penguins, though as someone who is of a generation that watched Mister Rogers Neighborhood, I certainly prefer it.

Re: PGA Winner

The only point in the Academy's favor is its push to diversify its ranks. The PGA largely consists of the Old Boys Club, which might explain why the Feel Good Movie About Racism could triumph over films with much headier topics. I'm going to tattoo this on me, Memento-style. Yesterday: I resent the...

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

Apparently, the Broadcasters aren't as sold on Close as Magilla and Reza are. Giving, in addition, Colman Comedy Actress means they can claim to have predicted the Oscar winner no matter who wins.
