Re: The Post reviews

Also, as a longtime D.C. resident, I have to say that the film has several moments that were just completely wrong. Like, that’s not even what the Supreme Court looks like inside, folks. And if you were a New Yorker, you'd note that the facade of the old Times building looks nothing like the real t...

Nominations Landscape -- Part 1: Best Picture

We’ve been throwing out nomination thoughts in various spots, and I imagine some of you will soon start posting full prediction lists. It seems to me time for a cover-the-waterfront look at what we can expect/hope for next Tuesday morning when the roster is revealed. (After I began writing this, I n...

Re: Nominations Announcement

Yes, it is, Franz. Did they announce last year’s acting nominees alphabetically? Yes; Cheryl Boone Isaacs seemed adamant about using the alphabetical system, even in the best picture category. If we recall, when Hawk Koch was the Academy president, the order in that one category was mixed, so we'd ...

Nominations Announcement

For those of us who missed the live announcement last year, good news. Though the early section -- primarily the tech categories -- will be done in the same pre-taped fashion as last year, the top-category announcements will be read live (performer(s) not yet specified). Here's the breakdown of the ...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

Anyone, man or woman, who hasn't at some point woke up the day after having sex with someone and regretted it is a) a virgin or b) a liar. The Aziz Ansari thing is a bad date; bad sex. It happens. It's not assault, and, as many are saying here, it demeans this important movement and its focus on act...

Re: USC Scripter Nominations

I've got to get a little quicker on the draw, here. Swear to god, about two days ago, The Lost City of Z struck me as a possible for adapted screenplay, and I was going to spring it in a larger post. It would be an excellent chance to reward Gray for an honorable if not (to me) thrilling career. Int...

Re: Presenter Update Assistance

And last, while these could fit into a couple of the above, I thought I would spell it out separately. At the 1975 Academy Awards, I have a single entry for Special Achievement Award, not plural, but singular. The thing is, I have both Sound Effects and Visual Effects special achievement awards lis...

Re: Presenter Update Assistance

- 49th Oscars: I need verification that Tatum O'Neal presented Best Supporting Actor I can verify. - 57th Oscars: These may resolve each other, but I have Original Song being presented twice, once by Kathleen Turner and Michael Douglas and the other by Gregory Hines; additionally, I'm missing a pre...

Re: Call Me By Your Name reviews

Yeah, to me, Elio is far more than a sketch -- maybe only because of Chalamet's performance, but I felt I knew a lot about him. Let me be one of the few to here to back BJ's take. I didn't get that Stuhlbarg's monologue was necessarily intimating a gay past; to me, it was regret about a missed grand...

Re: The Broadcast Film Critics (Critics Choice) Awards nominations

Yeah, my excitement about Rockwell/Janney winning at the Globes was premised on the idea that this group would slavishly follow the critics' lead and rubber-stamp Dafoe/Metcalf. Swear to god, I think so little of the Broadcasters, I could believe they changed their ballots after Sunday to try to get...

Re: The Post reviews

I thought I was going to end up on the lower end of opinions on this, but some of you are far more vociferous than I. I think the movie's "fine"; one of the better TV movies of the year, with an almost grossly overqualified cast. It covers a rather tiny subject -- or, better, a tiny segmen...

Re: Pre-Christmas Look at the Top Races

Jessica Chastain for Molly's Game got a Golden Globe nomination. She has a much more interesting role than Meryl Streep. Aaron Sorkin has a pretty good track record of writing movies that get Oscar nominations. And she's probably due for a third nomination. She's sort of always on the bubble. She c...

Re: DGA Nominations

Can you imaging the hue and cry over Gerwig or Peele getting left off in favor of say Spielberg or Anderson? Anderson should absolutely make the final five. I’m just going to say it. Obviously I agree, and it makes me sad that if such an excellent film gets an unexpected nomination over either Gerw...
