Re: I, Tonya reviews

You really should watch the film before attacking Robbie's casting. No, she doesn't go the full Charlize Theron/Montser route of chubbing up and uglifying, but nowhere in the film does Robbie's Harding look or feel attractive. Perhaps that's partly her upbringing, or perhaps it's because of her aggr...

Re: Presenter Update Assistance

Thanks for the updates again. I did some further digging tonight (still haven't found my copy of Inside Oscar 1 or 2) and have what I hope to be the last questions I have... I am missing presenters (and where in the presentation award they were given for the following: Documentary Feature - 18th (19...

Re: Presenter Update Assistance

I've come across another bunch of questions. I will probably have another set as soon as I do some research on other things, but here are some of the outstanding questions I need help with. - 18th Oscars: Still need verification on who presented "The House I Live In" an Oscar - 20th Oscars...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2017

I have seen Jumanji and it was the most enjoyable time I've had at the movies in awhile. I found the film incredibly funny. It doesn't take itself too seriously and, although it's built on conventional stereotypes of modern teenagers, they are executed well and are relatable. It's a fun adventure th...

Re: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri reviews

I can't see how anyone doesn't see Dixon as a closet case. I thought this was fairly obvious.

Re: Pre-Christmas Look at the Top Races

Bennett Miller for Foxcatcher is the only director since the expansion to ten whose film didn't get a corresponding Best Picture nomination, so it's possible that someone from a non-Best Picture nominee could be nominated, but it's a remote possibility.

Re: Call Me By Your Name reviews

I got the subtle impression that Stuhlbarg might have been talking about himself and the boy that got away, hence his recognition of the situation. It could also be that he's bisexual and because of societal standards, he was forced to settle down with a woman, whom he loves, even though he once had...

Re: Call Me By Your Name reviews

Isn't it though? Armie Hammer's character is almost treated as an idea, a summer fling who is a shade of reality so that he can be savored, but not utterly devastated by his departure.

Re: The Broadcast Film Critics (Critics Choice) Awards nominations

I did watch it and other than the really tacky "8 of the last 9" Best Supporting Actor winners bull shit, I thought it was a serviceable show and I think Munn did a fine job hosting it. Note that she's been in several movies, probably none you've watched, including Deliver Us from Evil, Ma...

Re: The Broadcast Film Critics (Critics Choice) Awards nominations

It should be noted that Get Out won the "lesser" genre prize, which makes me wonder if we're still undervaluing its potential. That Big Sick upset over Lady Bird, which went home empty-handed, seems out of place for this particular awards season.

I know you hate The Post, but you just described Streep's character as well.

Re: Golden Globe Reactions

Sabin, I don't really think the Globes intended to make this year's show about #MeToo. I think #MeToo made the Globes about itself, which is a great thing, IMO. Douglas is the oldest living Oscar winner (who will actually show up to events). They could have gotten De Havilland if she would have been...

Re: 17th Academy Awards

Thanks for helping on these. To clarify a couple. On the Martha Raye thing, I didn't see where you referenced where the award was presented in the show. I saw where you mentioned director, though. On the Gish thing. I'm not sure where that comes from. I have it down as Melvyn Douglas already. My que...

Re: DGA Nominations

I think Baker, and his film, are probably not as competitive as people think. The guilds have utterly ignored him. I think you have to consider Spielberg a possibility, largely because, other than PTA, any of these five or Guadagnino or even Baker would make for an all-first-time nomination slate at...
