Re: Nominations Announcement

Obviously the Academy knows who's nominated at this point , but wouldn't something as big as who is reading the nominations have had to be scheduled a while ago? Just because it was just announced doesn't mean it hasn't been on the books for some time. It also seems really weird to pick one person ...

Re: Final Oscar Nominations Predictions

A couple of thoughts: I wavered on putting I, Tonya into best picture, because I hadn't been able to fit it into screenplay. It was only then I noticed that, unless Molly's Game gets a surprise best picture nomination, Call Me by Your Name will be the only best picture nominee in adapted screenplay....

Re: Nominations Announcement

OK, I officially have no idea how they're doing this. Here's the Academy's tweet from today: https://twitter.com/TheAcademy/status/955532253894885376?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw&ref_url=http%3A%2F%2Fawardswatch.com%2Fforums%2Fshowthread.php%3F45091-The-90th-Academy-Awards-Nominations-Anticipation-Thread...

Re: SAG Winners

My initial cantakerous reactions are in the earlier SAG Nominations and Predictions thread, but one or two additional thoughts: I apologize for my glee at the Golden Globe choices. That was entirely based on the premise that the Broadcasters would surely echo the critics' dominant supporting choices...

Re: SAG Nominations and Predictions

I want to re-route this season through to about 1992, when there was no SAG, if there were Broadcast Critics no one cared, and BAFTA came months later and had nothing to do with the Oscars. This would have been so much fun. Fuck these precursors. At this point, you have to figure they're all playing...

Re: SAG Nominations and Predictions

So, Wonder Woman apparently wins the Stunt Ensemble award -- which doesn't seem great news for Dunkirk, does it? (I mean for future awards, not here.)

Re: PGA Nominations

I'm a tad surprised by the instant-negative responses here. Most everyone I've spoken to of late really likes/loves The Shape of Water. It wouldn't be my number one -- that'd be Three Billboards, with Phantom Thread nipping at its heels -- but it'd be one of several films (along with those I've ment...

Re: Nominations Landscape -- Part 2: The Rest

Thanks for all the kind words. I do these things to some extent to clarify my own thinking, but I do craft them with an audience in mind, and writers always like to know they're appreciated.

Nominations Landscape -- Part 2: The Rest

So: the other categories. I spoke with a friend the other night, who’s a best-picture-only voter at AMPAS, but votes in acting categories at BAFTA. He said he found both male categories very difficult to deal with this year, for opposite reasons: in Best Actor, he had trouble coming up with five nam...

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...
