Re: R.I.P. John Mahoney

A truly great actor. Like many, I discovered him in Frasier (I was too young for his 80s films in real time) and then delighted to discover the great actor he was...I first remember his dramatic side in Primal Fear. We were lucky in Chicago to get him full time post Frasier and got to see him really...

Re: It's Trivia Time

Question: Ferdinand, nominated for Best Animated Feature, was based on the same book as the 1938 Oscar winner for short cartoon. How many other Oscar nominated/winning shorts became nominated features?

Re: It's Trivia Time

Considering the Academy does not credit the producer specifically with the nomination or the award That is not true. If the best picture award weren't for producers, the Academy wouldn't have set a limit, post- Shakespeare in Love , on how many producers could be nominated for one film. If you go t...

Re: It's Trivia Time

Remember Me is also the name of a nominated song from 1937. Is this the first case of a Best Song nominee having the same title as a previous nominee?

Re: Casey Affleck Not Attending the Oscars

Getting back to the original question, though, I think the ideal substitute for Casey Affleck would be his Manchester by the Sea co-star and co-nominee Lucas Hedges, who would almost certainly be presenting the Best Actress award to either his on-screen mother in one film or his on-screen girlfrien...

Re: 2017 Oscar Nominations

I'm sorry, but this has to be one of the most ridiculous and pointless arguments we have ever had on this board...I can't even figure out what we are arguing about!

Casey Affleck Not Attending the Oscars

http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-42827210

Casey Affleck won't be presenting Best Actress this year. Any thoughts on who they bring in to present? Tom Hanks? Denzel? Jeff Bridges? Sidney Poitier, the earliest living winner, would be cool.

Let's put it this way: Kobe Bryant could be the first person to win an Olympic Gold Medal and an Oscar Gold Statue.

Re: Which Nominees Have You Seen?

I think this is a really strong documentary lineup. Faces, Places, Abacus, and Strong Island would all be on my Top 5 documentaries of the year list. Last Men in Aleppo is powerful, but I thought City of Ghosts was much more fascinating. Icarus is not my type of film at all, but it is fine for what ...

Re: Which Nominees Have You Seen?

My list of films I need to see is very long (although I just got a bunch of Spirit Awards screeners that will help), but I've actually seen all 5 documentary nominees already!

Re: It's Trivia Time

Steven Spielberg adds to his record of having his films nominated for the most Oscars in history, now 129! That is a record that it may be safe to say is never broken. For reference, Christopher Nolan is the director under age 50 with the most nominations, and his films only have 34. That is a lot o...

Just fixed this. I had that tidbit in mind before today, and I wasn't expecting Denzel.

Re: It's Trivia Time

Mary J Blige is the first person nominated for acting and songwriting in the same year.

Octavia Spencer and Denzel Washington become the first African-American to be nominated for acting Oscars in back to back years.
