Re: The Nominations Announcement

I don't know if I'll be able to watch it either way this year. I'm having my annual heating maintenance between 8 and 12 am on Tuesday. If the guy comes early, I will be in the basement watching him instead of the Oscar announcement. It's an appointment I had to make three months ahead of time so I...

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

Boy Erased (Joel Edgerton, 2018) 7/10 I kept thinking of Nazi death camps as this film progressed. The humiliation and shame forced on young men and women makes this true story extremely uncomfortable to watch. Gay conversion therapy is apparently a norm in 36 states in the United States. And it's l...

Re: Golden Globe reactions

Yes it's annual. Yes it's going to be for TV only unlike the DeMille. It's also going to be named the Carol Burnett Award. Dick Van Dyke should be the recipient next year before its too late. I was thinking Betty White, but Van Dyke would be a wonderful choice too. Some others who could well win th...

Re: The Wife

Colman has absolutely zero chance of winning against Close this year. Really? It'd be a pity because we all like a bit of suspance. But then there's only Glenn Close. There is rarely any suspense at the Oscars. But sometimes they manage to throw in a curveball although it won't be in the lead actre...

Re: The Wife

Still, Close is good. Her performance is more intelligent and more nuanced than the vehicle itself, but of course I don't think she SHOULD win an Oscar for such a flawed little thing. And will she win?I I can't believe that she will get many precursor awards - with the possible exception of the Nat...

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

Beautiful Boy (Felix van Groeningen, 2018) 6/10 Haunting highly-personal story about a teenage boy's drug addiction and the trauma his family goes through as they helplessly watch him spiral out of control. Based on a pair of memoirs from father and son David and Nic Sheff, the film is formulaic but...

Re: Golden Globe reactions

I think this is a terrible reason to vote for her, but here's Jeffrey Wells' reason for voting for Close in Sunday's Critics' Choice Awards: JW Pick: Glenn Close, The Wife / serious conflict here — my actual favorite is Melissa McCarthy but I’m also a Close supporter from way back. Plus a Close win...

Re: Golden Globe reactions

You guys are doing a ton of jumping ahead, presuming Close has already locked away subsequent awards. Let's wait and see. This could be a Globes-only sentimental choice. Which Burton turned out to be. Of course it could be - and I'd never say that Glenn Close has by now already won her Oscar. Still...

I agree. Too much of this hate nonsense has been going around now on a regular basis which is scary.

Re: Golden Globe reactions

Is the special Globe that was given to Carol Burnett this year going to be an annual award like the DeMille? What makes it different to the DeMille award? Are they now differentiating their honorary awards for film & tv?

Re: Golden Globe reactions

Don't think Colman (or any of the others) have any chance of a win against Close. Even if she loses both the SAG and the Bafta she will win the Oscar. Ditto. Magilla and Reza, convinced a senior citizen will win. Unprecedented. I'm actually surprised more of you guys aren't in line with a Close win...

Re: Golden Globe reactions

I think even the young know quite well who Glenn Close is looking at her filmography - the Dalmations film has probably been seen by most of today's generation while they were kids and her work on tv in Damages has also kept her profile pretty high in recent years. So it's not quite the Jessica Tan...
