Re: New Rules for the 92nd Oscars

“We have noted that the reference to ‘Foreign’ is outdated within the global filmmaking community,” commented Larry Karaszewski and Diane Weyermann, co-chairs of the International Feature Film Committee. “We believe that International Feature Film better represents this category, and promotes a pos...

Re: Trivia

Mahershala Ali stars in both Best Picture and Best Animated Picture winners... I haven’t thought this through but is this is a first? Answering this to myself... Unless I’m not getting anyone, had La La Land won Best Picture, J. K. Simmons would have been the first to achieve this, as he appeared a...

Re: 91st Oscars: Ceremony

A quick comment on the ceremony that apparently didn’t bother anyone else... the recipients of Honorary Awards were given hardly more than a few seconds on camera after their quite short video. I know the anxiety of delivering a shorter ceremony was mandatory but this felt not only rushed but actual...

Re: 91st Oscars: Picture

I miscalculated my prediction of BR winning BP by a hair: In a year where the Academy was so centered on being popular as their way to stay relevant, I doubted all the way Roma or for that matter The Favourite and BlacKkKlansman really had a chance. I thought Black Panther was way out there to facto...

Re: Trivia

Not a record but an interesting fact: Cuarón joins Ang Lee, George Stevens and Frank Borzage, in the group of directors with two Best Director victories without winning Best Picture. The odd thing is that the 2nd award for Cuarón, Lee and Borzage came in years where the Best Picture winner didn’t ha...

Re: 91st Oscars: Picture

Of the nominees for best film, Green Book was one of the least nominated and ended up being named BP. Is this a first? Please exclude the Grand Hotel anomaly...

The other one nominated the least ended up the biggest winner... this must be definitely the first time it happens.

Re: Categories One-by-One: Director

Since the 60's, DGA have missed the Oscar winning director roughly once per decade, the exception being the 2000's having made two eventual non winning choices: - Anthony Harvey, The Lion in Winter - Francis Ford Coppola, The Godfather - Steven Spielberg, The Color Purple - Ron Howard, Apollo 13 - A...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Score

I've just found out Jóhann Jóhannsson, Sicario 's composer, died last year. I wasn't a fan of his Golden Globe winning score from The Theory of Everything , but we can't deny it's a beatiful, although intrusive and by the numbers one. His work for Sicario was way better. He died in Berlin on 9 Febru...
