Oscar Factoid Help

While working on a project, I came across some "factoids" that I think are interesting, but need fleshing out. I'm listing them here in the hopes you fine people can verify my current research or advise where I'm missing stuff. Short Films nominated in more than one category: Devil Take Us...

Re: Decision 2016

Apart from it being a fetish for him, Trump seems like the kind of guy who would rather give Golden Showers than receive them.

Re: DGA Nominees

Weinstein put The Founder in cement shoes so he could focus on the more crowd-pleasing Lion, which has been received enthusiastically, even by critics. I know for a fact that Rod Lurie voted for Lion as one of his top two choices here and at the Academy. Lion will be big because Harvey needs to prov...

Re: Changes to Nominations Announcement

I saw someone on Facebook mention this, so I wonder if the real reason might be something a lot more cynical. This also prevents Academy and its directors from having to immediately speak to the press afterwards regarding the nominations. Thus, there won't be any embarrassing at-the-moment call-outs...

SITE DOWNTIME

There is something going on Wednesday nights that is causing the board's posts table in our MySQL database to crash. I'm not sure what's causing it. I have a ticket open. Right now, the site is back up again. I do not know how long that will last. If it happens again next Wednesday night, I'll at le...

Re: PGA Nominations

Mad Max isn't even close to a fair comparison. Mad Max ran the table through the precursors. Other than a couple of other mentions, Deadpool is a non-entity. Skyfall had more going for it than Deadpool does.

Re: USC Scripter Nominees

There you have your five Oscar nominees. I find it very hard to believe this won't be the list. USC is the single best predictor of Adapted Screenplay out there.

Re: BAFTA Nominations

Denzel Washington plays Denzel Washington. He has seldom broken the mold he established for himself in films like Glory and Malcolm X. That's not necessarily a bad thing. His Malcolm X performance is masterful. However, I would say that much of his repertoire, successful as it may be, isn't that imp...

Re: Decision 2016

Apart from financial supporters in his cabinet, the selections made this far REEK of Pence, who has led the transition team. We know that Trump has ZERO interest in actually governing and is mostly delegating that responsibility. It's why we get someone like Betsy DeVos nominated for Education Secre...

Less Than Active

Last Thursday, I had a minor surgery to remove a skin cancer lesion from my forehead. What should have been a 48-72 hour recovery is now stretching into its fifth day. It appears I've developed an infection and the antibiotics are taking their sweet time to work. As soon as this all passes and I rea...

Re: National Society of Film Critics Awards

Weird. In this list, Fire at Sea is second place in Non-Fiction, but in Variety where I got the data, it's I Am Not You Negro...

Someone must have put it down wrong somewhere as the NSFC website lists I Am Not Your Negro.
