Re: Oscar Predictions & Race Discussion Thread - July to Toronto

I loved her in both, but I don't see much emotional range difference between the two. Every performance is different by technical definition, but the story arcs and the way the character addresses each are certainly similar.

Octavia Spencer's second nomination proves that they'll nominate her even for giving the same performance (see also Christoph Waltz).

Re: Inside Oscar 2

Looked over the data I have and apparently I already got that information, so I guess I don't need it after all. Thanks for offering.

Re: Inside Oscar 2

I'm looking specifically for all the pages with the order of presentation and presenters listed. What years does the book cover? I may already have access to the information....

Inside Oscar 2

I can't find my copy right now, so I was wondering if anyone had immediate access to it and would be able to either scan some pages or take clear pictures of a couple of pages from the book for me?

Re: 2017 Emmys

I think Black Mirror submitted two or three of its episodes as "movies." And whether you like what Sherlock does or not, "The Lying Detective" is one of their finest episodes to date and that's saying a great deal. The only reason Louis-Dreyfus gets to claim the most Emmys for a ...

Re: Oscar Predictions & Race Discussion Thread - July to Toronto

Our whole point is, which you utterly fail to grasp, is that at this point in the game, claiming to know anything with certainty is a fool's errand. Washington's film may have gotten a mixed reaction, but Washington is one of those actors who could get nominated for reading the phone book (kinda lik...

Re: Oscar Predictions & Race Discussion Thread - July to Toronto

Who knew that Chocolat would go from being a mediocrely reviewed film to a Best Picture nominee. Sometimes, thinking we know everything is worse than thinking we no nothing.

Re: Should "Gone with the Wind" go the way of the Confederate flag?

I'll counter with the following article: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/act-four/wp/2015/07/01/why-we-should-keep-reading-gone-with-the-wind/?utm_term=.90ebecc985fe It is all about context and, as this author notes, it might be more instructive not just on understanding the South's continued ra...

Re: Should "Gone with the Wind" go the way of the Confederate flag?

I disagree with that statement, BJ. No one is saying it was "good for blacks." Even in the seminal "12 Years a Slave," there's a family who treats his slaves well. This is treated as a good thing, even if a short-lived one. They were indentured, yes, but they took comfort whereve...
