Re: The Americans: Final Season

Yes!! I cannot wait. It’s amazing how almost newly relevant the show now is with all this Russia stuff going on. I am steeling myself for an incredible final season. I heard that this season begins with a three-year time jump to 1987.

Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys are on Colbert tonight, by the way.

Did you see his insane interview on Ari Melber’s “The Beat” at 6pm? It was incredible.

Re: Oscar Predictions Contest

I came up with my predictions about twenty minutes before the show started. I’m surprised that I tied for second place having made incorrect predictions for a lot of the big awards (Picture, Actor, Original Screenplay, Original Song).

That Icarus guess helped!

Re: 90th Oscars: Ceremony & Pre-Show Discussion

Any thoughts on the order of awards. Which supporting performance was awarded first last year? Seems like it will most likely be the opposite tonight.

Re: Evaluating the nominees

I wanted to piggyback on dws’s Praise of this annual treat. Always comprehensive, wise, and direct, Uri. I especially loved this year’s entry’s attention to Phantom Thread , one of the year’s most unexpected masterpieces. May Goddess Cyril prevail. And, yes, where was Vicky Krieps this year? Sorely ...

Re: Academy Members' Brutally Honest Ballots

Someone sat through Darkest Hour FIVE TIMES?! I couldn’t really believe that, honestly. I mean, like, really? These voters seemed to be enthralled by Mudbound. I feel like I saw a totally different movie than the IndieWite girl (I felt like that was clearly a woman actually, Wes). Can you imagine s...

Re: 2017 Oscar Nominations

That comparison is very problematic, Reza, and you’ve made it (with some suspect frequency, I might add) in several threads.

Re: R.I.P. John Mahoney

He was great at playing nice guys, but my favorite Mahoney performance was his villainous judge in Suspect with Cher, Dennis Quaid and Liam Neeson, made the same year as Moonstruck . Magilla, I was just chiming in to say the same thing. His performance in Suspect is my favorite. I love that movie, ...

How delightfully fantasy-like. In the real world, this is not the case at all. Trump and the entire GOP are one in the same now.
