Re: Screen Actors Guild Awards

Mister Tee wrote But, seriously: the real shock in the category is how generally lame it is -- it rivals the 2007 roster, where No Country for Old Men was the only serious best picture contender to qualify. Here, A Star is Born fills that role -- I expect it to win here, unless either Black Panther...

Re: Screen Actors Guild Awards

MaxWilder wrote I really wonder if the BR fans in SAG could name more than three actors in it. To be fair, being able to name the actors isn't criteria for a good ensemble cast. Wanting to be able to name the actors is. THOUGHTS: -- One of the two big question marks around A Star is Born was whethe...

Re: Screen Actors Guild Awards

Mister Tee wrote (Sabin feels so strongly about this, he gives the film two slots.) Ugh, two typos. I was having a day.... I liked what you were saying about the Best Cast Award being an essential gatekeeper towards an Oscar win. Last year, I became mildly fanatical about how no film had won Best P...

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

Mister Tee wrote I could be off-base here, but I have a notion First Man could do something like what The Insider did: rack up a surprisingly decent showing in the Oscar nominations despite being widely seen as a box-office flop. Cinematography, both sounds, editing, score and visual effects all se...

Re: Screen Actors Guild Awards

Reza wrote Don't you think Jordan's nod as part of the ensemble in Black Panther is enough that he has to take this slot too? I think Chalamet will get this spot very easily. These are not preference picks, Reza. I'm just saying what I think will end up getting nominated. Michael B. Jordan's perfor...

All these supposed nods have a strong whiff of Doctor Dolittle from way back yonder though to give it some credit at least Black Panther is far more entertaining if equally popcorn fare.

This ignores what a cultural phenomenon the film was.

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

The Original BJ wrote It's getting the PGA nod for sure. The WGA has a way more populist contingent than the Academy's writers' branch, so it's probably in there too. SAG Ensemble isn't out of the question either (Roma isn't their style, and Green Book and A Star is Born have tiny enough casts to b...

Greg wrote Which leads to the question, just how many people will be watching the show, regardless of who is hosting, if, as seems likely, A Star Is Born will be the only Best Picture nominee to have made more than $50 million in ticket sales?

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

I actually have a modicum of sympathy for him. He may very well have been evolving as a person over the past ten years. Lord knows, he wouldn’t be alone. And as a black entertainer crossing over as successfully and as young as he did... truly impressive. These producers threw him out there without a...
