Re: Reactions

Tee, you might be interested to know that Free Solo has made $13 million at the box office so far. RBG has made only $14 million, so Free Solo isn't exactly a box office weakling.

Re: Reactions

Sad day for If Beale Street Could Talk. The best film of the year not nominated for Best Picture. Saying BlacKkKlansman support was soft is based on what? The only category it was a major upset possibility was Best Actor? It got into Picture, Directing, Supporting Actor, Adapted Screenplay, Original...

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 will defend Driving Miss Daisy to the end because I thought it was a ...

Re: The Nominations Announcement

I know that they've been televising since at least 1991 because that's the legendary announcement of Beauty and the Beast as a nominee. As to E!, it hasn't aired the nominations in a few years. I used to watch there because they showed the whole thing, not just the televised part (they also didn't t...

Re: The Nominations Announcement

Also, according to the Academy's Twitter, Kumail Nanjiani and Tracee Ellis Ross will be announcing. The former makes sense. The latter is a television personality primarily, so that doesn't make as much sense.

Re: USC Scripter Awards

I think If Beale Street Could Talk is a lock here. James Baldwin is the most acclaimed novelist of this bunch, IMO, and this script is incredibly literary. It's the only place I think Beale has any momentum.

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

Consider that the OFCS, of which I'm a member and GC member, which is roughly the size of the BFCA (which last I checked was over 350 members on the film side), has had a grand total of four ties in its 22-year history. The most recent was in 2001 when there were two ties (Picture & Original Scr...

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

This is also the third tie the BFCA has cooked up in Best Actress. The last two sets were also in highly competitive years. 2008 & 2009. 2008 was between Anne Hathaway & Meryl Streep (neither won) and 2009 was Sandra Bullock & Meryl Streep. Bullock won.

FilmFan720 is correct. It would not count as an official nomination for Cuaron.

Re: Green Book reviews

Unfortunately, we have just the opposite reaction from Sasha Stone who's defending Vallelonga because we shouldn't let "art" be sidetracked by politics. Apart from the utter subjective gymnastics she has to go through to proclaim Green Book art, she's also defended Woody Allen. I defend Al...

Yes it's annual. Yes it's going to be for TV only unlike the DeMille. It's also going to be named the Carol Burnett Award.

Re: DGA Nominations

I think If Beale Street Could Talk is done for at the Oscars. With PGA, DGA, and ASC all ignoring the film over work that was easily inferior, I have no hope that If Beale Street overcomes all this. There are new minority voters in the Academy, but I think BlacKkKlansman will get most of their suppo...
