Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

This tweet by Eric Anderson was brought to my attention: ABC/Disney #Oscars nominations outside of the Top 8 Visual Effects - 3 Production Design - 2 Costume Design - 2 Score - 2 Song - 2 Sound Mixing - 1 Sound Editing - 1 Animated Short - 1 Documentary Short - 0 --- Editing - 0 Cinematography - 0 M...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Supporting Actress

I moved my post from the BAFTA thread to here: I'm so annoyed by Best Supporting Actress this year. It's so hard to make the case for Regina King when the only two awards groups with Academy overlap didn't nominate her. At least with Christoph Waltz for Django Unchained, you could make the case that...

I have no idea but I'm predicting Vice.

Easily my choice for Best Cinematography of the year. I don't think there's a single extraneous or wasted frame in the film.

I would say almost to a fault. I wish the film had a few extraneous, wasted frames.

Re: Roma reviews

I think there's an interesting conversation to be had about Alfonso Cuaron's relationship with exposition. In Gravity, the dialogue is ham-fisted. In Y Tu Mama Tambien, he darts here and there to provide big picture context. Oddly, Children of Men's dystopian future is always entirely clear. With Ro...

Re: On to BAFTA

Mister Tee wrote In 1986, though, they got attention for passing on Eddie Murphy (who’d won Globes/Broadcasters/SAG) in favor of Alan Arkin…the man who went on to unexpectedly win at the Oscars. Then, in 2007, they both broke up Julie Christie’s run by picking Marion Cotillard, and pinpointed Tilda...

Re: Your best picture ballot

1. The Favourite 2. BlacKkKlansman 3. Roma 4. Black Panther 5. Bohemian Rhapsody 6. A Star is Born 7. Green Book 8. Vice To be honest, 3 - 8 are all in the B- to C/C+ range. I'm not sure if A Star is Born is much better than Green Book. It's certainly the less offensive film but it's so much more bo...

Re: Your best picture ballot

Big Magilla wrote A veteran film critic and I were discussing Sundance ’19 and the general wokester atmosphere. At one point I offered my usual-usual, which boils down to (a) “I really and truly believe we are in the midst of a kind of woke McCarthyism,” (b) “The current political-cultural revoluti...

The Original BJ wrote Here's an article with the much-buzzed-about ad in Variety that I'm referring to. And to be fair, many of the women interviewed -- one of which I know personally -- make eloquent points that get at the real issue behind lack of opportunity for women in the director's chair. (I...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Visual Effects

Yeah, um... I don't know. I suppose we could wait for the Visual Effects Society to announce their winners except they've been correct only 5 of the past 9 times. Three of their misses were Planet of the Apes films which are not in competition this year. The BAFTAs are a little better predicting 6 o...

I think you’re just making up arguments for the sake of making up arguments, so you can take from my thoughts what you feel like.

Re: DGA Nominations

Mister Tee wrote Observation: it's not that common for SAG Ensemble/PGA/DGA to all go to different films, and in the years where they have split like that, generally one of them has also won the Drama Globe (Gladiator 2000, A Beautiful Mind 2001, The Aviator 2004, 12 Years a Slave in in 2013,The Re...
