Re: 2018 Emmys

Betty White was not nominated for an Emmy until 1951. The longest lived 1949 nominee was Patricia Morrison who died less than four months ago at the age of 103 and they didn't even include her in their in their In Memoriam segment. A classier move than dragging out Betty White for the umpteenth time...

The proposal was pretty awesome. I live for that kind of moments in awards shows.

That was the only thing and it was given by the director of THE OSCARS!!!

Re: Honorary Oscars Wish Lists and Speculation

Cooper's impending death was well known behind the scenes, though it was Stewart's blubbering presentation that generated public suspicion and confirmation.

Cantor's award was for "distinguished service to the film community" and not for his largely undistinguished films.

Re: Honorary Oscars Wish Lists and Speculation

I don't agree that Pickford's honorary Oscar was a silly choice. She was a huge boxoffice star during the silent era and a powerful figure behind the scenes as well along with Fairbanks and Chaplin. The 1975 award honored that distinguished career. Her Oscar for Coquette most certainly was a traves...

Re: Honorary Oscars Wish Lists and Speculation

I was going to mention the Robinson situation earlier. The same was true for Audrey Hepburn. AMPAS doesn't give out posthumous honorary awards under any other circumstances.

Surely you mean Leon Shamroy?

So you think he should have won for The Cardinal instead of for Cleopatra?

In lieu of Walter Lassally not being nominated for Tom Jones, yes.

Re: Cinematography 1939-1966

I think the color categories go back to 1939, not 1947. You're right, they do. I'll change the verbiage on my initial post. The pro two-at-a-time case: There are going to be years where one category or another will contain films many haven't seen, especially in the black-and-white categories in the...

Re: Best Cinematography 2016

Hacksaw Ridge and Hell or High Water also had impressive cinematography, but these five nominees are all stellar. I hate, hate, hated La La Land but that was due the embarrassing warbling of the two leads, not the cinematography. However, this film was such a singular vision for the director it's d...

Cinematography 1939-1966

In two weeks we will begin the discussion of the cinematography awards for the pre-1967 era, which we will do from the newest back to the oldest. As you know, the cinematography awards between 1939 and 1966 were given separately in black-and-white and color categories. The question is, do we want to...

Re: Honorary Oscars Wish Lists and Speculation

Davis for Tyson, but also James Earl Jones (Broadway's The Gin Game) and Oprah Winfrey (The Women of Brewster Place) as well as Perry could add a few words.

Jackie Chan as backup for Schifrin.

Just Spielberg for both Kennedy & Marshall and Levy seems a bit much - others will have to help.

Re: R.I.P. Burt Reynolds

I had read all the stories about his declining health, but I thought he still had a few more years left in him especially in light of his carting in the Tarantino film.
