Re: Categories One-by-One: Original Screenplay

There is, however, something else to consider and that's that like Spike Lee, the likely adapted screenplay winner, long-time writer Paul Schrader has never won an Oscar. Oddly, he's never even been nominated. He could, like Lee and Glenn Close, be a recipient of one of those "it's about time&...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Director

So, why the .1% doubt? Simply put: the last time a foreign-language film was in this position to win an Oscar, the voters instead passed on a (nominated) DGA choice for the first time in 28 years. That scar still aches a bit. So, yes, of course I'm betting on Cuaron, and very much expecting him. Bu...

A nerdy, fascinating look at the rarity of this year's top 3 winners aligning with critical consensus.

Re: The 2019 Grammys

Did anyone else watch the awards? I assume BAFTA's would have won out, as with Bradley Cooper, so on this board. MICHELLE OBAMA. Her single utterance of "Motown..." brought the house down. Just to be clear, the audience's rousing ovation had nothing to do with Motown. Rather it was Michel...

I caught the last half an hour or so and read up on the winners. - Glad to see Kacey Musgraves win Album, probably the best choice in that particular list. Alicia Keys' pregnant pause bef...

Re: What's everybody reading?

Just recently picked up Marlon James' "Black Leopard, Red Wolf", his followup to the Booker-winning "A Brief History of Seven Killings". Described as an African Game of Thrones, set in a fantastical Africa populated with folklore and legend, and the kick-off to a trilogy - I have...

Black Leopard, Red Wolf

Marlon James' followup to his 2015 Man Booker-winning "A Brief History of Seven Killings" has been purchased by Michael B. Jordan and Warner Bros. Very much looking forward to this potential title. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/michael-b-jordan-tackling-african-epic-fantasy...

Re: Cesar Award Nominations

Wonder what that age limit is? Grégoire Leprince-Ringuet was born in 1987 and was last nominated in this category for The Princess of Montpensier (2010) which would make him 23 at the time. Maybe 25 is the age limit. Anyway it's pretty weird. Circling back to Jehnny Beth, she is 34 and in the Newco...
