Re: The Nominations Announcement

Apparently the days of big stars/Oscar winners doing the announcement are long gone. As you both note, Ross isn't even a film name -- but Nanjiani isn't exactly a luminary, either. Nanjiani, as a first-time nominee from last year, could be viewed as a "rising star," which, very often, acc...

Re: Vice reviews

One political satire that I have been intrigued about tracking down on video, etc., is Nasty Habits. It was made a few years after Watergate and parodies it by portraying a scandal at a convent. Glenda Jackson plays a nun based on Richard Nixon.

Re: Green Book reviews

If you read Nick's biography on IMDb. you'll see his early production work gave prominent acting jobs to Clarence Williams III, Paul Winfield and Louis Gossett, Jr. He may not be "woke" but he's not intrinsically racist either. Well by that logic, Trump gave jobs to Ben Carson and Omarosa...

Re: Green Book reviews

Green Book basically plays that line straight--in multiple scenes, Mortensen is showing Ali how to be more black, by introducing him to fried chicken, by encouraging him to play "real" music in a blacks-only restaurant. . .There's absolutely no reason, other than the lower place his chara...

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

All these mentions of just Cuaron and Cooper for Best Director are ignoring the real possibility of a career Oscar to Lee.

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

That being said, this wasn’t a mentally well person. She faked having cancer to get her family to reunite around her after she had drive them away, and when she couldn’t keep her lies up committed suicide by shooting herself in the head.

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

”I've met people who had sex much later in their life and they WERE traumatized for having waited so long”. What does this mean? Maybe they were traumatized because the experience itself was traumatizing. Haven’t you met people who waited what might be considered a little too long and still have a ...

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

There is no Hollywood royalty anymore. I cannot stress this enough. At least, not as you once knew it. People go to the movies not to see their favorite stars but to see their favorite characters. e.g. look at the top ten box-office films so far this year on boxofficemojo.com. Every single one of t...
