Re: Best Cinematography 1945

Can't fault any of the nominees in both categories.

Ernest Haller's cinematography for Mildred Pierce should have won the Oscar.

Re: Last Seen Movie - The Latest Movie You Have Seen; ratings

One Less God (Lliam Worthington, 2018) 7/10 Islamic terrorists attack Mumbai and create death and destruction. This low budget Australian indie film has a tendency to go over-the-top with melodrama, has a few bad casting choices - the terrorist handler speaks Urdu with a foreign accent which seems t...

Now for this I might seriously consider making a trip to New York.

Both performances were incredibly vivid. She made her presence felt and made her characters stand out despite the short screen time.

Re: The 2019 Honorary Oscars

Honoring James Hong would be honoring Asian-Americans, not Asians per se. They probably think that honoring Kurosawa and Bergman covered their actors (Mifune, Ullmann, von Sydow, etc.) Cicely Tyson is a great actress by any standard even though her greatest performance was in TV's The Autobiography...

Re: The 2019 Honorary Oscars

Maybe they'll get around to James Hong next year when he'll probably still be acting at 91. And that too would be a stupid error on part of the Academy when von Sydow, Ullmann and many other more deserving candidates with long and very distinguished careers are still around. Enough with trying to l...

Re: The 2019 Honorary Oscars

Studi is, by all accounts, a good guy, and I think he's a good actor, but to me it just seems odd that he gets an Honorary Oscar when so many great filmmakers he's collaborated with--Michael Mann, Terrence Malick, Walter Hill--haven't gotten anything, not to mention actors like Liv Ullmann and othe...
