Re: The Post reviews

Re: Pre-Christmas Look at the Top Races

One thing I have thought about in relation to Sally Hawkins chances of winning Best Actress is, as far as I know, everyone nominated for Best Actress for playing a mute character, Jane Wyman, Marlee Matlin, and Holly Hunter, has won.

Re: PGA Nominations

One thing I've been wondering about lately -- what nominations is Wonder Woman going to get? It seems like the kind of cultural event/well-liked summer hit that shows up SOMEWHERE, but its tech credentials aren't terribly strong -- it's already been bounced from Makeup/Visual Effects.
