Beth is, of course, the frontwoman for the incendiary London-based post-punk band Savages. Excelling in many fields.

Re: Reactions

With Pawlikowski and Cuaron's nominations, this is the first time since 1976 that two directors of foreign-language films competed (Bergman's Face to Face and Wentmuller's Seven Beauties) in Best Director.

Re: Reactions

It's been covered elsewhere, but Bohemian Rhapsody's 49 Metacritic rating is the worst for any BP nominee since at least the birth of Metacritic. :)

Re: What's everybody reading?

It seems like A Little Life sapped the life out of this thread nearly four years ago haha. I recently (finally!) got Infinite Jest out of the way so it's probably a good time to start hacking away at the piles (and piles) of unread books in my library: Dickens, Tolstoy, etc. I left off in the middle...

Re: Golden Globe reactions

I don't remember many speeches from previous years that seemed to clinch the rest of the televised awards for an actor, but Close's speech was shiver-inducing. When bad Oscars happen to good actors, I guess?

Re: Short Lists for Multiple Categories

The shortlist for the music categories on the Oscar website is nice, but it omits the actual songwriters - an impressive list of performers. You haven't listed the songwriters either, though -- that's a list of the performers of the songs. (Some of them are ALSO the songwriters, but not all.) Oops!...

Re: The 2019 Grammys

A critical overview of the nominees can be found here . The expansion of the main categories results in good and bad, as is to be expected. Much as I chafe against seeing mediocre streaming giants like Drake and Post Malone so well represented, I can't fault the Grammys for recognizing what the main...
