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...

What do you guys think Honorary Oscars are for?

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...

Re: Best Cinematography 2014

This was a fairly strong year for this category. I positive on most of the nominees, but would still try to find room for A Most Violent Year, Only Lovers Left Alive, Snowpiercer, Wild, Winter Sleep, Under the Skin, and even Leviathan. I wouldn’t have succeeded, of course, but still would have tried...

Re: Best Cinematography 2012

Django Unchained was not something I would have recognized, though it’s not a disgraceful nominee. Lincoln is the type of nominee that could be read as rote but I actually think does a tonne right. They way they manage some gorgeously mythic images (Lincoln walking away near the end) while ensuring ...

Re: Best Cinematography 2013

Oh, AMPAS. Only you could make the deserved coronation of one of the most important cinemagicians of the 21st century less satisfying. For while I can wholeheartedly recognize Lubezki’s work on Gravity as the work of an immense talent, the whole cinematography category this year just needs an overha...
