Re: Second/Third Tier Critics Winners

There are several groups, having given out for over 20 years, who announce nominations and then winners. Among them: Chicago, Phoenix, and the Online Film Critics Society.

Re: Second/Third Tier Critics Winners

I think it's their general lifetime achievement award, and like the Academy, it has to go to living individuals.

Re: LA Critics Winners

Richard E. Grant isn't well known in Hollywood? He's been a respected character actor since the 1980s. He's a "That Guy" and certainly has more of the profile of a J.K. Simmons than anyone since Simmons. With over 120 credits, he's worked with tons of actors in Hollywood. I'd say he's got ...

The reason Blunt is in support is because that's where the entire cast of A Quiet Place is being campaigned according to the screener.

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

You mean like Green Book competing in Comedy. Driving Miss Daisy wasn't actually a comedy either, but that's where it dominated in 1989 too.

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

Also, the Academy's board cringed at the nominations announcement last year when she butchered several names. Further, the problem with Hart is how he handled it, not that he has grown and matured since he said them. First of all, he didn't start deleting until yesterday, which shows that he wasn't ...

Re: Chicago Film Critics Awards

They aren't the first group to recognize Widows. The film had five citations prior to today. The Satellites nominated it 4 times. It was also nominated in the Los Angeles Online critics nominations.

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

That was the most disgusting defense I've seen yet of Kevin Hart. NO, it is NOT natural to worry about your son being gay because he may not be into or able to partake in the customarily male exercises of society. THAT is toxic masculinity. If you worry about that, think about WHY you're worrying ab...

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

Bob Hope was a comedian. Johnny Carson was a comedian. Billy Crystal was a comedian. Whoopi Goldberg was a comedian. All of the considered-great hosts were comedians, mostly stand up. It was just a different era of stand up than today, not that Goldberg or Crystal are too far off from the recent bat...

Re: Golden Globe Awards

Lady Gaga and Queen Latifah should be alphabetized under L and Q respectively.

While I get that Lady and Queen are typically titles, they are not granted to either of these individuals and their names aren't Gaga and Latifah. They are single names even if they are two words.

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

Jumanji was a funnier film than anything else I saw last year. It's too bad you won't give it the time of day. I guess it's not high brow enough for your tastes.

Max, I was meaning that since Haddish was an Oscar contender FOR Girls Trip that they would have be at least modestly cognizant of her.

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

It's like listening to a bunch of old women at the beauty parlor as they discuss that young whipper snapper Brad Pitt they've never heard of. Kevin Hart has a box office average of the 22 films he's been in of $83 million. His big hits were Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle ($400 million+), Central Int...
