Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

That's because they WEREN'T found overnight. They were collected over a period of time and held in reserve for later use. When the scandal broke, they released it to make it seem like he had a bunch of defenders. A large number of the women who signed the letter have come out publicly as condemning ...

Re: 2018 Emmys

She also lost for her bravura guest performance on SVU. She lost her nom for Blackwater Lightship, her two nominations for hosting the Tony Awards and what undoubtedly should have won her an Emmy (if the SVU stint didn't), her Great Performances appearance on Sweeney Todd. You can criticize the proc...

Re: 2018 Emmys

Don't forget Angela Lansbury's unparalleled losing streak. Even Susan Lucci picked up an Emmy after a long drought. Was I the only one who thought Betty White sounded like she was having trouble staying focused. I felt really bad for it as it felt like they tried to trot her out for ratings, but fel...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

It's hardly a plot irrelevance. It's no different than the absence of Mr. Beale in the musical Grey Gardens. It simply demonstrates that the patriarch is too busy for everything but making money, leaving his wife to raise the child and groom him. That distance is simply a detail that explains the so...

Re: Major Changes to Oscar Telecast

Since Rotten Tomatoes isn't necessarily well liked, I'll also cite MetaCritic. That said, Black Panther on RT average rating is 8.2, which is quite good for an 87% fresh rating. Black Panther has an 88 from MetaCritic, which includes no negative or mixed reviews and 90 from Manohla Dargis, Kenneth T...

Re: Best Cinematography 2015

I adore Mad Max: Fury Road, but there is no better shot film than Carol. It might even be my favorite photography of the decade.

Re: Major Changes to Oscar Telecast

One thing I noted from the first article I read about these changes is that they weren't sure they would be able to have it implemented for this year's awards. That, to me, was code for "We aren't 100% sold on this idea, Dawn Hudson and ABC, but we'll see what people think first before doing an...

Re: Honorary Oscars Wish Lists and Speculation

Kathleen Kennedy is long overdue for a Thalberg. I think she, more than any other producer out there, is the most deserving. They haven't given the Thalberg award out since 2010. That's 7 years of nothing, a fairly long stretch for the Academy. They've given out five Hersholts since then (none in 3 ...

Re: Major Changes to Oscar Telecast

My concern is that this is going to push films like Black Panther out of Best Picture consideration INTO this new category. Get Out nominated for Best Picture is a far greater achievement than what this new category will be. My guess is that when the ratings don't improve because of the changes that...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

The number of supreme court justices is not specified in the constitution, therefore, it's a legislative decision. It would probably require a veto-proof majority, though, because the R's wouldn't ever let it happen.

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

I don't think they were trying to hide Screenslaver's identity...if they were, they did a terrible job of it. It was a pretty easy guess.
