Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

The Foreign Language Film category really has the potential to be superb this year -- if Roma, Shoplifters, Cold War, and Burning (which might take a miracle, but I guess never say never) make the lineup, that'll be a slate that puts the Best Picture list to shame. If all those films were to show u...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

I keep thinking I'll find time to write extensively about films I've seen, but it never seems to happen, and now we're just days from the first of our two High Holy Days, so let me mention some things in brief: I think, all things considered, Shoplifters is my favorite film of the year. It's for sur...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

It's starting to happen, and it's only going to get worse. This can't go on much longer.

Re: The Nominations Announcement

Any word if both segments will be televised? Last year, I had to last-minute-scramble to boot up my computer to get the Oscar.com stream for the earlier portion; it'd be a lot easier if it all made it on air. (Especially since there are major acting categories in the first group, this time around.)...

The Nominations Announcement

Still no word on who's going to read the nominees next Tuesday, or how much of it's going to be on TV (last year it was only the second part). But this Tapley tweet breaks out which categories will be revealed where:

Re: Visual Effects Society Nominations

Remember we live in a world where Suicide Squad won an Oscar. Why did that happen? Well, I think it came down to which movie did the most voters see. Another view might be that Suicide Squad, while a godawful movie, did have more impressive and more original make-up than the other nominees. The per...

Re: Visual Effects Society Nominations

Big story is no Black Panther. It's worth noting that Arrival got no love either and didn't make it. I think it's getting snubbed. So, if Black Panther doesn't make the Oscar cut, what wins this category? I've been saying all year that Ready Player One had the effects that impressed me most, but I ...

Re: USC Scripter Awards

I do wonder if maybe the tide is turning in another direction. What a weird Oscar season. I don't at all dispute your take, but what direction would that be? Beale Street -- a film that's been battered by the Guilds? Can You Ever Forgive Me?, a financial dud? The others seem fringe candidates for w...

Big Magilla wrote:In any event, that fifty year coincidence still has nothing on Jefferson and Adams dying on July 4, 1826, the fiftieth anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

That one, I agree, is a "has to make you ponder the existence of god" convergence.

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

Cool thing someone at AwardsWatch came up with: It's now 50 years since the last (and only legit) acting Oscar tie. The winners that night were of course Katharine Hepburn for The Lion in Winter and Barbra Streisand. Glenn Close subsequently played that Lion in Winter role in a TV movie. Tonight, s...

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

Apparently, the Broadcasters aren't as sold on Close as Magilla and Reza are. Giving, in addition, Colman Comedy Actress means they can claim to have predicted the Oscar winner no matter who wins. Bale was the big shocker. Based on the first two legs of the TV track, supposed front-runner Bradley Co...

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

A brief thought about this group's awards/predictions, which will be announced tonight: As you know, I couldn't hold this group in any lower esteem, but tonight will demonstrate just how deep their level of whore-dom goes. Their voting all took place this week, post-Globes. My deep suspicion last ye...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Yeah, I believe we're approaching DEFCON 1. And the final result is going to be a lot closer to what the so-called alarmists were predicting than what the "realists" have been maintaining. Fasten your seat belts.
