This one isn't as infuriating as the others. They didn't say who this person was but I suspect it's an editor since he (or she) said a lot about it.

Well, that and the fact that the headline literally says "Editor thinks..."

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

For those who've been wondering if Bob Mueller was actually going to come up with anything...I'd say it's on. It was fascinating watching Rosenstein's press conference announcing the indictments. He kept answering all questions -- e.g., "does this mean no Trump people wittingly cooperated?"...

Categories One-by-One: Best Actor

The nominees: Timothee Chalamet, Call Me by Your Name Daniel Day-Lewis, Phantom Thread Daniel Kaluuya, Get Out Gary Oldman, Darkest Hour Denzel Washington, Roman J. Israel, Esq. This is most likely an easy one, but let’s go through it anyway. I had to wait to get Roman J. Israel, Esq. under my belt ...

Re: Categories One-By-One: Supporting Actress

My initial thought was to wait till after BAFTA to post here, because BAFTA could pretty much nail the race shut. But I agree so fully with so much of what dws has written here that I’ve decided to weigh in now, while things still remain up in the air. To begin: a quick salute to Hong Chau and Holly...

Re: Isle of Dogs

Reviews; excellent. Thanks to Wes Anderson, for giving us something to see between the Oscars and Telluride: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/review/isle-of-dogs-berlin-2018-1085094 http://variety.com/2018/film/reviews/isle-of-dogs-review-1202700010/ https://www.screendaily.com/reviews/isle-of-dogs...

I'm not familiar enough with Haneke to really understand what you mean with this.

Watch Funny Games or The Piano Teacher, and you'll have your answer.

Re: R.I.P. Jan Maxwell

I only saw her on stage once -- in Neil Simon's The Dinner Party, back around the turn of the millennium. Her prime time in the spotlight unfortunately coincided with my difficult years (though I doubt anything would have got me to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, regardless). Her reputation was certainly s...

Re: 2017 Oscar Nominations

We briefly mentioned Kobe Bryant as nominee. This recent development to rescind his nomination has been below the radar (my first time hearing about it), but that's a sizeable petition. http://www.cartoonbrew.com/awards/13000-signed-petition-take-away-kobe-bryants-oscar-nomination-dear-basketball-1...

Re: R.I.P. Jóhann Jóhannsson

This is obviously from the blue, and thus shocking and sad. As might be remembered, I didn't care for his Theory of Everything score, but I thought his work with Villeneuve was first-rate. Sorry that his last Oscar memory is of being disqualified-out of a nod for Arrival. And that the very possible ...

Re: Oscar quiz

My initial thought (after Tee listed those other movies that qualified), was a movie featuring a previous Oscar-winning song that was actually SUNG by someone who appears in the movie (not just on the soundtrack). So my thoughts all qualified there -- Moulin Rouge ("Up Where We Belong" su...

Re: Oscar quiz

All right: I'll lead off, since I was first to take a stab. Uri said "one of you did mention the fact that makes TSoW part of this list of films" in reviewing Shape of Water. I went back and looked the thread over, and the only thing that jumped out was something I'd noted: that "You'...

I don't know what this means. And I think it's time for Uri to swoop in and say exactly what he was driving at. To be more specific, Renée Fleming. It's 7 hours ahead in Israel. I suspect that Uri is fast asleep. If Renee Fleming is the answer, I have no idea what the question is. Which is to say, ...

But then Shape of Water doesn't fit -- pending my hearing what Magilla's loophole is.

End credits.
