Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

Regardless of whatever they did the results worked out well for Rami Melak and I think the paragraph taken from one of the Oscar voters speak pieces sums us the films enormous public appeal (just shy of $850 million worldwide and still counting): "Almost everyone admitted that “Bohemian Rhapsod...

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

but Malick, like Cagney, not only sings, I don't think so. At best, and I'm happy to be corrected, but my understand is that Malick sang the songs but was largely over dubbed over by Freddie Mercurys original recordings. I can claim no knowledge of the musicians but to my ear female singers are far...

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

The presentation going overtime is part of the shows tradition and I must admit I think the Oscars will struggle to make their 100th anniversary as everything is changing so quickly, no doubt the show may have 'cost issues' and the nature of the general public viewership is evolving into goodness k...

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

Perhaps its the cynic in me but I can't help thinking whoever is pulling the strings is doing so for nothing more than 'change for the sake of change'. Working in the same organisation for most of my working life I saw lots of changes, some of them massive. Most changes were to improve efficiency an...

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

FYI it’s the first time since 1992 (that’s 27 years) that the ceremony won’t be broadcasted live by any of the four open tv channels in my country. None of the them will even bother to broadcast the shorter version for international viewers that has been broadcasted since 1983 around here. That's a...

Re: R.I.P. Albert Finney

I've re-seen so many of his films in the past few years, it didn't occur to me that he hadn't made a film in seven years until I came across the notation in this article that Skyfall was his last film. I've watched a lot of his films in the last 2 years or so: Tom Jones, Saturday Night and Sunday M...

Re: (D)Evaluating the nominees

Precious,The Handmaid’s Tale has only aired two seasons so far. The next one will be the third season. Opps, I should have said I intend to stream the third season - don't want to wait 12 months to see it on Blu Ray. Oddly enough in plays on free-to-air TV here and then onto their streaming channel...

Re: R.I.P. Albert Finney

Apparently Finney told the Academy that he would not bother coming over to collect an honorary Oscar. Since the Academy does not present in absentia that was their last attempt at giving Finney one. Janet Gaynor and Myrna Loy were both awarded Oscars and their acceptance speech was filmed at their ...

Re: R.I.P. Albert Finney

I'd add David Warner, Timothy Dalton and late in the decade, Malcolm McDowell to the list. Warner and McDowell were definitely in the angry young man mold, Dalton not so much. Great catches. How could I forget David Warner :oops: - one of the favourite actors of all time and it was nice seeing him ...
