Re: SAG Nominations and Predictions

anonymous1980 wrote The Help also won 3 and that film underperformed at the Oscars taking home only Supporting Actress and getting only 3 other nominations. Good catch. Never mind. Mister Tee wrote I want to re-route this season through to about 1992, when there was no SAG, if there were Broadcast ...

Re: SAG Nominations and Predictions

Didn't watch the show but checked in to the Twitter feed. BJ's fear came through. They copycatted the Globes and the Broadcasters. It sure looks like we've got our acting winners. And 'Three Billboards...' tied with 'American Beauty' and 'Chicago' for taking home the most SAG awards (3). That certai...

Re: SAG Nominations and Predictions

I'm disappointed that Laurie Metcalf didn't win this award, but I can't really muster much ire against Allison Janney winning an Oscar.

Re: PGA Nominations

I think 'The Shape of Water' has two things for going it... 1) It will likely be the choice of all the below the line people. The art directors, cinematographers, costume designers, etc. Maybe not all of them, but it's clearly supplanted 'Dunkirk' as the craftsperson's choice. 2) The SAG Ensemble no...

Re: PGA Nominations

This can’t all end with ‘The Shape of Water’ winning.

Re: Nominations Landscape -- Part 2: The Rest

Mister Tee wrote Unlike best actress, there’s way too much going on in this category to even devise any foolproof alphabetical strategy. I’m very interested in how this one turns out. That's pretty much how I feel. One (DaFoe) of the strongest bets is going to be a sole nominee. Then three sets of ...

Re: Nominations Landscape -- Part 1: Best Picture

The Original BJ wrote It's interesting that Sabin compared Sean Baker to Zeitlin (and I love that you referred to him as a young guy breaking through, as it's quite encouraging for me to hear a 46 year-old referred to that way). Have you seen him??? Isn’t never guess he was 46. Also, he makes films...

Re: Nominations Landscape -- Part 1: Best Picture

OscarGuy wrote That was also the year of the WALL-E snub. Yeah, Dark Knight gets a lot of the attention, but WALL-E was also a major snub that morning when many thought it would get nominated and the usual chorus of "they ignore animated films" built up. That's not how I remember it. It w...

Re: Nominations Landscape -- Part 1: Best Picture

Great writeup, Tee. Wish I held off a day or so before posting. Mister Tee wrote The Florida Project would initially have appeared the stronger hopeful, given the number of film/director critics’ prizes it received. Its profile – high critical praise/low grosses – is what has created many a lone dir...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

There's one part of the story that keeps jumping out at me. It's where she says he ordered white wine. She prefers red, but he ordered white. Which makes it seem like she had no control over the course of the evening at all...

Then order your own wine.

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

I've read other hot takes that omit the phrase assault and instead use the word misconduct. Also, I recommend 'The Atlantic' piece "Aziz Ansari and the Paradox of No." It draws attention to the miscommunication between the two of them, how he could text her the next day saying he enjoyed t...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

Look, obviously my heart goes out to anyone who's made to feel cheap, but it muddies the message from raising awareness of sexual assault to...what? Guys shouldn't try to have sex on a date? Despite the backlash, several reputable news sources are saying this story matters and we need to talk about ...

Re: I, Tonya reviews

Watched 'I, Tonya' again because my girlfriend wanted to see it and she was very taken by it. Pretty much every woman I speak to these days loves it without hesitation. The men I speak to have reservations about its tone, its nastiness, and the tightrope it walks, almost as though they're slightly p...
