Oscar Statistics

I am contemplating a new weekly feature (possibly monthly, depending on inspiration) on my site called Oscar Statistics where I look at various data points associated with the Oscars. Facts and figures can be interesting, obviously. While I have my first few ideas set out in my head, I'm curious wha...

Re: Poll: Rename "Life Under Trump"

Really detest that name. I don't care if we're using the term ironically, it's a phrase that has nationalistic connotations, which should not be at all involved in polite conversations.

Re: Trivia

I recently read two reviews of revivals of titles you mentioned. West End has a revival going now of Virginia Woolf starring Imelda Staunton that was very well praised and, largely thanks to Staunton's performance. Then there's a Broadway revival of Glass Menagerie that wasn't well received with lig...

Forum & Site Downtime

Thursday evening (if all goes according to plan), my site host is going to be migrating my entire site to a newer server as I had briefly had problems with the old one. This means that the site may not keep all of your posts made that evening. When I get confirmation on when it will start, I will lo...

You never read ours, Inky. On Cinema Sight, all four of us had Moonlight down as the runner-up prediction.

Re: Trivia

While we hardly have a consensus, it's interesting to me that three straight people say it's a gay movie and we have two gay people who say it isn't. Maybe it's all a matter of perception in terms of gay identity and how a film like Midnight Cowboy, if it is an actual gay movie, is utterly disempowe...

Re: Trivia

There may be gay undertones to Midnight Cowboy, but as Joe largely resists the idea that he might be gay and repugnantly responds to each situation wherein he's confronted with that idea, I will never classify the film as a gay film and it sure as hell isn't explicit.

They probably still went through a security check point, it would be foolish to believe otherwise.

Re: 89th Oscars: General & Ceremony Discussion

Why the hell is this even a story? Who cares if Gary from Chicago was an ex-con? Everyone gets a chance to start a new life regardless of their past. Besides, since this was a planned thing, but not planned for who would be on the bus, I hardly think it fair to blame the Academy for not vetting the ...

Re: Best Actor 2016

No offense, and I'm the last person to speak on this, but they accepted the settlements. They decided that money was more important than principle. I won't defend what Affleck did, but at this point, the victims are satisfied and to me, that's what's most important. As to Washington, he had high hop...

Re: Trivia

Alexis Arquette being snubbed is no less mysterious than Joan Rivers. Sure, Alexis had more than 50 film credits, but other than being the transgender Arquette, did anyone actually consider her much of an actress? I mean, her early career was in prominent films, but the last major Hollywood effort s...

Yeah...in 1978. Superman won a special achievement Oscar for Visual Effects. Then Batman in 1989, a competitive Oscar for Art Direction. Then The Dark Knight in 2008 for Sound Editing and Supporting Actor...

Re: 89th Oscars: Best Picture

Other than this, how many other times has the wrong envelope been given. Someone said Sammy Davis Jr. got the wrong envelope sometime back in the 1960s.
