Re: Cinematography Next?

I was thinking we could do this in two phases. Phase 1 would start with the 1967 awards, the first year since the expansion to separate categories for black-and-white and color to have just one category, and work our way through 2016 or 2017 depending on when we get there. Phase 2 would begin with ...

Re: Cinematography Next?

My thinking is that if we conduct one poll per week starting next Wednesday that should be enough time for people to catch up. It's not as if films from 1967 to 1997 are that difficult to find. With rare exception, those that are missing probably aren't worth worrying about. Anyone who has seen four...

Re: R.I.P. Dina Merrill

I remember her best on screen in Desk Set and The Courtship of Eddie's Father and in the 1983 Broadway revival of Rodgers & Hart's On Your Toes in which she sang a lovely version of "The Heart Is Quicker Than the Eye".

Re: R.I.P. Dina Merrill

I always thought she was undervalued and underutilized, but the she had all those social commitments that kept her busy.

Breaking News (AP) The Israeli government was the source of the classified intelligence that President Trump shared with a pair of Russian officials in a meeting last week, a new report said Tuesday, The New York Times, citing a former American official who knew how the US obtained the information, ...

Re: Everything Is Great Again

Right now they're still using Trump to get what they want. He has a built-in buffer of diehard supporters that could turn to someone outside of the party if he is impeached. With Pence to sign into law everything they pass, they won't miss him, but without that buffer they may find 2018 tougher than...

Re: Everything Is Great Again

If there is evidence of Pence and Ryan having knowledge of Russian money laundering they could be impeached simultaneously with Trump. If they were smart, Ryan and McConnell, who is subject to impeachment on the money laundering but not in the chain of command, would move to oust Trump now on any nu...

Another Old Lady Enters the Oscar Race

From East of Eden to Five Easy Pieces and beyond, it's more than about time that one of our greatest unsung actresses was given an Oscar campaign. Whether it's successful or not remains to be seen, but at least it's happening. “Majorie Prime”: Sundance Institute FilmRise has acquired U.S. distributi...

Re: Everything Is Great Again

Magilla, again I'm not saying I know this is the case, but the Twitter brigade say Russian money was provided to/laundered through Republican campaign committees last summer, and that there are conversations caught on tape of Ryan acknowledging he knew about this. That's the rationale for President...
