Re: Best Cinematography 2003

I voted for City of God, which has so much more life in its camerawork than the other four dull nominees put together. This is a lackluster group. As for also-rans, I will go with Sabin's citing of Elephant and Kill Bill. I would also throw a nomination towards The Company, a movie which most seem t...

Re: Documentary Feature Watch

Won't You Be My Neighbor seems poised to be quite the hit (there are full cardboard diorama posters in movie theatres promoting it...not sure if I ever remember that for a doc before). You can't count out RBG, which has become a minor box office hit (it has hit the Top 10 at least twice already) and...

Re: Best Cinematography 2001

For a year with so many great choices, this feels like a lackluster list. I voted for The Man Who Wasn't There, the only of the nominees I would have nominated (as will be a pattern for me from this point on, I went with the black and white nominee). This is some of Roger Deakins' most interesting w...

Re: Foreign Language Film Watch

Custody was not on my radar at all, but I loved Just Before Losing Everything (easily my favorite of the shorts that year). This just became high on my watchlist!

Re: Best Cinematography 1998

I'll join the crowd and vote for The Thin Red Line here. Not only is that cinematography gorgeous, but when it needs to it can be just as chillingly shot as a Saving Private Ryan, with Toll and Malick letting the camera linger, or letting little details preclude the doom that is coming just over tha...

I think you may have a typo here, but I would pay big bucks to see this movie!

Re: The 19th Annual Who'll Be Back?

Tee, wonderfully insightful as always. I have little to add in terms of the actual nominees. For the bonus rounds, you covered the people I thought of immediately: Robert Pattinson, Tracy Letts, Sean Baker, and especially poor Michael Stuhlbarg. The most obvious, though, seems to be Armie Hammer. I'...

Re: Oscars' Hat Tricks party game

Looking at the Best Picture category, the streak from 1960-62 has to be one of the best selections of films the Academy has honored. Three all-time classics -- The Apartment, West Side Story, and Lawrence of Arabia -- all completely different in tone and style, and all among the greatest examples of...

Re: Trivia

The Shape of Water ended a 13-year drought of the Best Picture winner not having a Best Actress nomination, but that still isn't the longest streak. It has still be 14 years since the Best Picture winner had a Visual Effects or Make-Up nomination (two categories that The Shape of Water could have po...

Re: Trivia

At some point, we had a list going of movies that featured the most acting Oscar winners. And it's worth noting how quickly The Help has joined those ranks, with Sissy Spacek, Mary Steenburgen, and Octavia Spencer now joined by (in only two years) Emma Stone, Viola Davis, and Allison Janney. And it...

Glenda Jackson is in the states performing with Laurie Metcalf on Broadway. Figuring they have no performance that night, might they convince her to fly out for the show?

Re: Casey Affleck Not Attending the Oscars

Matthew McConaughy is the only Best Actor winner announced to present so far, so it looks like he could be taking Affleck's spot.
