Re: Best Cinematography 2000

Among the nominees, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is head and shoulders above the rest, but had YiYi been eligible Wei-Han Yang's cinematography would get my vote. Also conspicuous by its absence, along with YiYi and the previously mentioned Wonder Boys and Almost Famous , is BAFTA nominee Billy El...

Since he's starting his second year, this assumes he will be finished before it goes into a third next year at this time.

Re: Best Cinematography 1999

Well, yes, American Beauty was the best of the year, but The End of the Affair was a close second for me among the nominees, with The Talented Mr. Ripley and The Straight Story the most egregiously overlooked. The Insider would be my fifth choice. On the other hand, I don't get this sudden rejection...

Re: Historical Oscar Short-Lists

I had always assumed "Mrs. Robinson", which was written by Paul Simon, not Simon and his singing partner, Art Garfunkel, was passed over because the version used in The Graduate was just a snippet of the song that lasted a little over a minute and wasn't even copyrighted until January, 196...

Re: Historical Oscar Short-Lists

That's a good question. From my discussions with Damien, I gathered that Mason did most of the research and Damien did most of the writing. The "songs not nominated" that Damien lists go beyond just those that were short-listed. I never had a conversation with him about the songs, but I di...

Re: Historical Oscar Short-Lists

Speaking of songs, two of the most shocking omissions for me have always been "You're Gonna Hear from Me" from Inside Daisy Clover and Theme from New York, New York which made the shortlists but were left out of the actual nominations which went to far inferior songs, in the case of "...

Re: Historical Oscar Short-Lists

Interesting.

"Song for a Musical Picture"from 1950-1956 and 1960-1961 should obviously be Score for a Musical Picture.

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

It's gotten to the point where I dread turning on the news. Not only is all of it bad, it's dominated by the most vile human beings on the planet. If there's anyone I can't stand more than Trump, it's Giuliani. Now the pundits are all over CNN and MSNBC wondering what happened to "America's may...

Re: Best Cinematography 1998

The Thin Red Line was nothing if not beautiful to look at, but the idea of soldiers stopping on their way up a hill in the middle of a battle to look at treetops still grates on me all these years later. There was little that was pretty about Saving Private Ryan but it was realistic, well done and ...

Re: Academy Kicks Out Cosby and Polanski

The two are not the same. Cosby was accused of multiple crimes even though he was only convicted of one. Polanski was accused of just one crime for which he spent time in jail and fled before sentencing because he got wind of the judge's plan to jettison his plea bargain agreement whereby the senten...

Re: 2018 Tony Awards

Another bit of trivia - if Diana Rigg wins for My Fair Lady she will be the first non-singing, non-dancing winner in a musical since Thomas Mitchell in Hazel Flagg , the 1953 musical version of Nothing Scared in which he played the doctor who delivers the wrong diagnosis to Hazel (Carole Lombard in ...
