Re: Nominations Announcement

But why one guy and seven gals? Maybe they want to limit the possibility of one of the announcers having a #MeToo scandal break before now and tomorrow morning? I say this with no disrespect meant to Tiffany Haddish, but she strikes me as exactly the kind of performer to milk the moment of not bein...

Re: SAG Winners

And that was the scene they decided best shows off Timothee Chalamet's performance? I mean, I know he's pretty much destined to lose to Oldman now, but they could have chosen a better clip. Given that most of Chalamet's most impressive scenes are near the tail end of the movie, it's possible they a...

Re: SAG Nominations and Predictions

I don't know that I have any great predictions, but my ONE wish is that we don't just simply get a repeat of the Oldman/McDormand/Rockwell/Janney Globe/Broadcasters slate. (Of course, the one category where I'd most like to see an upset -- Best Actor -- is the one that seems least likely to provide ...

Re: Nominations Landscape -- Part 2: The Rest

I can't claim to have any great crystal ball in terms of the director category. I'm probably going to end up predicting the DGA five, simply for Sabin's reasoning -- none of them strike me as the one to obviously bet against. (The way, say, Garth Davis did last year, or David Fincher in the year of ...

Re: The Post reviews

He looked almost as bad as poor Michael Stuhlbarg who looked like a vampire drag queen who is “presenting male” for a night in a speakeasy. I burst out laughing at this line. It just sums up how bad so many of the wigs are in this movie. Wow, you guys all really hate that scene of Streep descending...

Re: Nominations Landscape -- Part 1: Best Picture

American Honey got no Oscar nominations. I'm not sure where that comparison fits in. They are both festival-praised, verite-style independent films about young people living in poverty, set against the commercial sprawl of America. American Honey got zero Oscar nods. So if Florida Project gets only...

Re: Nominations Landscape -- Part 1: Best Picture

Great analysis of where the race stands as we head into next week. There's a good possibility The Post ends up having a Selma-like haul. I've learned not to bet against Meryl Streep -- and probably won't be doing so this year -- but should she miss, it's very possible the movie only hangs on to Pict...

Re: Call Me By Your Name reviews

I think one thing that could have been clarified to assuage Sabin's issue is more exploration of what Oliver sees in Elio (i.e. what this hunk sees in this little boy, because that's definitely what it plays like.) There's a degree to which the answer is implicit in the era -- I imagine Oliver's deg...

Re: The Broadcast Film Critics (Critics Choice) Awards nominations

The top takeaways would have to be that this group further muddied the Best Picture race by passing on both Globe winners for Picture and Screenplay, instead choosing The Shape of Water and Get Out in those categories. But these goons endorsed all four of HFPA's acting winners, including the support...

Although that outcome would lead to its own kind of outrage -- and possibly the expansion of the Best Director category to 10 slots!
