Re: Your best picture ballot

Here's an article with the much-buzzed-about ad in Variety that I'm referring to. And to be fair, many of the women interviewed -- one of which I know personally -- make eloquent points that get at the real issue behind lack of opportunity for women in the director's chair. (I just feel like "H...

Female lead in Sorry to Bother You, Dear White People and the Creed movies. Plenty prominent enough for the gig.


And you even left off the most obvious reason for her selection — her role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

So Amandla Stenberg is famous enough to present, but not Allison Janney and Gary Oldman?

Re: Your best picture ballot

I feel like we've been struggling most of this millenium trying to define what we want a best picture to be. And to expand upon this idea a little bit further, it seems that different factions have emerged with wildly different ideas about what that should look like. Now, some will say, that's alwa...

Re: DGA Nominations

Just to clarify: yes, Burnham beating out was a major shock, and tells us something about the overall gestalt. (And makes one wonder if Bradley Cooper did one of those "three wishes I'll grant you, great wishes or small, but make a fourth wish and you lose them all" deals with a leprechau...

Well, Bradley Cooper losing the First-Time Feature prize to Bo Burnham probably qualifies as something that matters, I'd say.

Re: SAG Predictions

And the reason why there is so little pushback by others on this board is because they all prefer waiting for you to get your sensitive little soul into a tizzy and come up with your bitchy remarks. It makes for good repetitious drama allowing you to shine :lol: Not true. Many of us just do not hav...

Re: SAG Predictions

Mister Tee wrote But I'd guess Regina King was the big winner tonight. Wouldn’t we have said the same for Stallone in 2015, who also wasn’t up for a SAG or a BAFTA? The only big difference I see between them is that Beale Street is up for three Oscars and is seen as a more artistic film. Which in t...

Per Kris Tapley, Cinematography is one of the categories that will be presented during the commercial break.

Re: SAG Predictions

Great night for category fraud!

Pretty lackluster set of winners. And way to take the air out of the balloon on most of these Oscar races.

I will say this -- I am happy Glenn Close will finally win an Oscar.

Re: SAG Predictions

My one SAG related thought is that, in absence of the frontrunner in Supporting Actress, Stone/Weisz might not be seen as the lame ducks many feel they are at the Oscars (where the fact that both have already won seems like a big hindrance to prevailing again). It's very possible that when this grou...
