Re: Short Lists for Multiple Categories

Yeah, what oscarguy said. Of course cisgendered actors should be able to play transgendered characters. But pretending that trans actors have the same opportunities for visibility and roles is ridiculous. Precious, I can buy the idea that this director of Girl did cast a wide enough swath when searc...

Re: LA Critics Winners

I dunno Tee, The Rider was really acclaimed earlier this year (92 at Metacritic, compared to 80 for Sorry to Bother You, 87 for Hereditary, 89 for Eighth Grade) and apparently best actor was quite close, so Leave No Trace clearly had support in the room.

Re: New York Film Critics Circle Awards

a) I thought Into the Spider Verse was a video game. b) Sabin, I'm actually a little closer to Magilla on this one. I don't think Close needs to win critics prizes to win the oscar. She just needs no one else to dominate them. And the Page comparison is an astute one, in my mind. There's no pressing...

Live Action Disney Remakes

I'm of the age where the modern Disney animated films are pretty much cornerstones of my cinematic upbringing. I didn't go the the theatres that often as a kid (planetarium documentaries excepted) and I'm pretty sure three of my first ten movies were Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and The Lion King. ...

Re: PLEASE READ: My Fantasy Oscar League

re: Gosling

Yeah, I would be surprised to see him make it. Even if the film was a top tier contender, he'd still be an on-the-bubble candidate to me. Though now with the general underperformance of other films, I don't really know who stands to benefit.

Re: PLEASE READ: My Fantasy Oscar League

a) Too soon to tell, though I don’t think A Star is Born s winning for similar reasons. b) Definitely The Favourite – I anticipate it having the most nominations from AMPAS. I can see If Beale Street Could Talk doing well with the critics (Regina King and Coleman Domingo especially), though maybe th...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

1.4 million people in Florida just got the right to vote back. That's pretty huge. As for Sabin's question re: the new normal - I can see it, to be honest. Especially since these midterms aren't the ironclad repudiation of Trump many of us craved. The future is looking pretty challenging for this pl...

Re: First Man reviews

I really liked it - if not quite as much as dws, way more than BJ.

That said, it doesn't even appear that it'll do Bridge of Spies numbers, which is disappointing, though having seen it, makes some sense.

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

I did not watch the press conference. I am allergic to Trump's voice. Was it as bad as twitter is making it out to be?
