Re: Best Supporting Actress 1978

I had the pleasure of meeting Dame Maggie Smith last month while I was dining at the Ivy in London attending a special celebrity server night. (Smith was a diner, not a server.) She was dining with four others, including Samantha Bond who played her daughter Rosamund on Downton Abbey . After dinner,...

Well, I mean, of course she does!

I don't understand the Renée Zellweger comparison on a performance level.

Re: SAG Winners

And that was the scene they decided best shows off Timothee Chalamet's performance? I mean, I know he's pretty much destined to lose to Oldman now, but they could have chosen a better clip.

Re: SAG Nominations and Predictions

Was so excited to see my friend Malaya on stage with the ensemble of Three Billboards accepting a SAG! She plays the local news reporter in the film. We were in a play together in college so that was really fun for me.

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

Scarlett Johansson’s speech at last year’s Women’s March was one of the most moving of the day. I remember almost her entire speech now a year later.

I don’t think she’s necessarily deserving of ire. She seems like a really strong, outspoken, and articulate person.

Re: Nominations Landscape -- Part 2: The Rest

Wonderful read, Tee. I do have to stick up for Christopher Plummer though. I think he’s just excellent in All the Money in the World (really, the best thing about the film). So I can see why he’s being considered. I think the goodwill of subbing in at the last minute is the cherry on top of what is ...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

He was exonerated in court long ago on charges brought by Mia Farrow who many believe put the notion of her then 7-year-old daughter Dylan's being molested by him in her head. The prosecutor declined to prosecute because he felt he couldn't get a conviction (which is often the case for sexual assau...

Think Jared Leto in Dallas Buyers Club in the scene when Rayon dresses up in a suit and slicked back hair to go ask her dad for money.

Re: The Post reviews

God, this movie was boring. For a fun drinking game, take a shot every time someone is looking down at a piece of paper with wide, dramatic, Stanislavski-acting eyes. You’ll need an IV. It felt like, “We’re gonna take a little All the President’s Men and mix in some Spotlight and, oh, let’s sprinkle...

Yes, it is, Franz.

Did they announce last year’s acting nominees alphabetically?

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

There's one part of the story that keeps jumping out at me. It's where she says he ordered white wine. She prefers red, but he ordered white. Which makes it seem like she had no control over the course of the evening at all... Then order your own wine. It wasn’t white wine that he had ordered. He h...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

The girl herself identified the encounter as a sexual assault in the original “reporting” (if you can even call it that). For the record, I don’t think this qualifies as an assault, but I’m not pulling the term out of my ass. I think the whole roll-out of this story has been handled really poorly. A...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

But Aziz is being accused of sexual assault. In the original Babe.net article (WTF is that website?) “Grace” (who has now been identified as a hipster millennial living in Brooklyn named Abby Nierman) states that eventually through “processing” the episode and talking with friends, that what she bel...

Agreed, dws. It’s a #MeToo by way of “The Crucible.”
