They do in the acting categories.

Re: Oscar-winning performances directed by women or POC

It has been noted at this year's Oscars that Mary J. Blige is actually the very first actress to be directed to an Oscar nominations by a woman of color which was a bit surprising to me so I thought, how many performers were directed to Oscar wins by either women or POC? Here's a (probably) incompl...

Hmmm. If we're extending it to nominees, here are some additional names not yet mentioned from the same time period: Tom Hanks, Big (Penny Marshall) Emma Thompson, Sense and Sensibility (Ang Lee) Kate Winslet, Sense and Sensibility (Ang Lee) Barbara Hershey, The Portrait of a Lady (Jane Campion) Ca...

Re: Isle of Dogs

I saw a trailer of this about 6 weeks ago at the cinema only the once. Since that time they have been advertising the film via a 'turn off your mobile telephone' message, which is rather odd given these days you hardly ever hear anyone's phone ring.

Re: Categories One-by-One: Best Actor

Put it this way: if, early in the evening, Darkest Hour loses make-up to Wonder, will you be fully confident the same sort of brush-off isn’t in the works? Not saying it’s going to happen.

Your Oscar Ballot - Best Film

With just over two weeks to ago hopefully most board members will have seen most if not all of the best film nominees. What would your ballot look like? Question: do Academy members have to nomination the films from 1 to 9 or can they elected to just nominate 1 to 5 or 1 to 6 if they see fit? Mine: ...

Re: Molly's Game reviews

This was something I had no intention of seeing. The subject matter of gambling rarely makes for an enjoyable experience for me but there have been exceptions like Bay of Angels (1963), The Gambler (1974) & The Cooler (2003). But nabbing a screenplay adaptation made it a very reluctant must-see....

Re: Coming DVDs

Some interesting releases coming up: Arrow has a triple delight in May with Smash Palace (1981) a film from New Zealand directed by Roger Donaldson, one of the best films to ever examine the breakdown of a marriage; Black Venus (2010) one of Adbellatif Kechiche's better films that received scant scr...

Re: It's Trivia Time

This only occurred to me today and I did a check back to 1980 but I'd be surprised if it has ever happened before, but all five nominated directors wrote or co-wrote the screenplays for their respective films.
