Re: List of submissions to the 91st Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film

I thought it would be better to post this link in relation to Girl and its director on this thread rather that get the other thread off topic. Interesting to note that Girl is inspired by a true story and that trans dancer Nora Monsecour, who collaborated with the director and is very happy with the...

Re: Short Lists for Multiple Categories

Thanks for all the responses in relation to the controversy around Girl. I saw it back in August and until now have been completely unaware of this. The film itself is somewhat graphic and rather confronting and I certainly appreciate from a trans perceptive may very well be viewed as offensive and ...

Re: Roma reviews

Ah La Cérémonie. I watched it earlier this year and it still sparkles like the diamond that it is. As B.J. & Mister Tee said last week, we should start a thread up to discuss Burning - spoilers and all. I did start something only to feel really tired and accidentally deleted the post :cry: But i...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

There are four 'sex' scandals in the news at the moment being reported in the news in my part of the world: Geoffrey Rush; Woody Allen/Mia Farrow (yet again for the up tenth time in nearly 30 years); Hugo Weaving's niece quitting some U.S. TV show; A local federal politician who'd I'd never heard of...

Re: Short Lists for Multiple Categories

From what I've been reading, Girl would have been a Twitter war waiting to happen, so its omission from the foreign shortlist may be a blessing for the Academy. The list as is features far more prominent candidates than we usually see. Mister Tee, Is the issue to do with the gender of the actor pla...

Re: Roma reviews

I would have sacked those maids in no time. They were useless. I couldn't get past all that dog shit - can one dog really shit that much? And the house was such a mess. It kept driving me crazy during the film and I'd live in squalor myself if it wasn't for my partner who insists on cleaning. But th...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

I don't know... the movement surely has a good, valid and important intention, a noble reason that jusitifies its own existence. But this is so contradictory. Per her own words, the whole thing could have been encouraged (consensual) but now it is "the right time" (fashionable?) to talk a...

Geoffrey Rush's career is over. There is no way he can recover from these further allegations: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-12-17/yael-stone-explosive-allegations-about-geoffrey-rush/10625916 It just goes to show that some men can never get out of the syndrome as depicted in the film Porky's.

Re: Screen Actors Guild Awards

Thanks for posting the link to the article Rolo, it was an interesting read. Whilst this isn't first hand knowledge I did read somewhere a few months ago that the Academy is divided on the issue of Netflix. Some feel that Netflix is fine, the industry is changing and that the Academy should embrace ...
