Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

I think I *may* have found a solution. There's a streaming site called Watch US TV Now , a site aimed at U.S. military personnel as well as U.S. expats. The free plan streams five channels from the U.S.: CBS, The CW, PBS, something called MyTV9 and of course, ABC. I signed up for the free plan using...

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

I've been snooping around. It turns out the cable channel that carried the Oscars here for the past few years, HBO Asia, did NOT renew the rights to broadcast it live here because it was too expensive. I'm looking and looking and it seems none of the other cable channels seemed have picked it up (it...

Re: Unseen 2018 Oscar Nominated Films

Does anyone know where I can find Weekends? It's the only Animated Short nominee that I haven't seen and I could no longer find it online.

Categories One-by-One: Original Score

The nominees: Black Panther BlacKkKlansman If Beale Street Could Talk Isle of Dogs Mary Poppins Returns This is another interesting category in which the presumed front-runner, First Man which won the Globe and the BFCA, got left off the list. BAFTA's no help since they their music award to A Star i...

Re: Categories One by One: Best Actor

For all that, I’m still no closer to understanding how Malek is in the poll position. Is it just Freddie Mercury powering him? This must be a lot of it, plus some thanks-for-making-us-all-that-money. I think this all goes back to the Globes. Cooper and his film lose; overnight a loser narrative dev...

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

From the beginning of the Tony broadcast (in 1967), all categories were given on air. To be fair, there were fewer tech categories then: scenery/costumes/lighting were single prizes honoring both plays and musicals until 2005, and sound/orchestration awards were also late add-ons. But right from th...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Documentary Short

Alright. I've seen all five. Here are my thoughts on them: Black Sheep is about a young black British man recounting the time he experienced racism in his youth when his family uprooted themselves to move from London to Essex after a young black kid got murdered in their neighborhood. It's an undeni...

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

I've long wondered why they don't sell DVDs of their previous broadcasts, though I suppose the market would be pretty small and they would have to clear all the music and clips rights which would probably prove costly. Film and music clearances will be super expensive and super complicated to hamme...

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

The presentation going overtime is part of the shows tradition and I must admit I think the Oscars will struggle to make their 100th anniversary as everything is changing so quickly, no doubt the show may have 'cost issues' and the nature of the general public viewership is evolving into goodness k...

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

It's particularly odd that they're trying it this year when Best Picture nominations for Black Panther , Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star Is Born mean that the ratings are going to go up in any case. I know. It seems bonkers since the ratings are guaranteed to go up because of those nominees. I guess t...
