Re: Historical Oscar Short-Lists

When Damien wrote inside Oscar, one section that always interested me was the "songs not nominated." Were these his own observations or were these the shortlists?

Re: Academy Kicks Out Cosby and Polanski

Low-hanging fruit to make them look like they are doing something after their own president was "exonerated" of sexual harassment charges. I'll guarantee that they got together to expel Cosby and someone with a Polanski-axe to grind thought it would be the perfect opportunity to target him...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

Good in parts, but a bloated mess it still was. It was also a massive cheat. Marvel fans should be cheated.

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2017

Amidst the hate, I will be a lone voice of appreciation. I enjoyed the hell out of it. Note that word: enjoyed. The film had a LOT of problems, mostly in the script department. It was long series of poorly connected show-stopping musical numbers. I know some said the songs sounded too much alike, bu...

Re: Cannes 2018

It's been a very long time since I last had streaming issues with Netflix. They have gotten to the point that their systems test yours as your loading up the stream and then buffer enough of the content to make the playback smooth and they continue downloading in the background while your video play...

Re: Original Song Singers

I think I may have been able to isolate some of the other ones. Can someone please verify these? Silver Shadows and Golden Dreams (still nothing) Linda from The Story of G.I. Joe was either sung by Pat Friday (one source) or Shelley Mitchell (a different source) So Little Time was apparently sung by...

Original Song Singers

This might be a challenge, but I'm working on data to see just how many original song nominees were sung by the same person, both on the telecast and in the movies. So, I'm trying to get the song performers from the films themselves. I've gotten the large majority of them, but I'm missing a sizable ...

Re: Ceremony Help Again

Also, does anyone know of a good resource for when, where, and who hosted the separate sci-tech awards? I'm trying to be as thorough as possible on my awards coverage, but I wasn't able to find the info on Wikipedia.

Re: Ceremony Help Again

That makes me wonder where the special awards for Harry M. Warner, Spawn of the North, Oliver Marsh & Allen Davey, and J. Arthur Ball were presented.

Re: Ceremony Help Again

Do I have Best Picture in the wrong spot? Several years had Picture presented earlier in the evening than at the end. Is this right? And what does Inside Oscar show? And every time I go into my spreadsheet, I catch something that I skipped (even after highlighting them) At the 11th Oscars for 1938. ...

Re: Ceremony Help Again

Another thing:

for the 68th Oscars for 1995, I have the introduction of the original song nominee "You've Got a Friend in Me" between the presentation of the honorary award to John Lasseter and Animated Short Film, but somehow I don't have who introduced the performance. Nor does Wikipedia.

Ceremony Help Again

Ok. So, the Margaret Herrick library cut me off for help. I've managed to piece together a lot of stuff, but I have one last sticking point. The 18th Oscars for 1945, I have the ceremony order thus: Show Introduction Animated Short Film Live Action Short Film (One-Reel) Live Action Short Film (Two-R...

Re: 90th Oscars: Ceremony & Pre-Show Discussion

I'm sorry, Reza, but you're wrong as usual. Since you're not an American and don't live in America, you can't possibly see or understand the sea change that is happening. It takes ripples and I've seen it in the environment I'm in. There's some backlash, of course, but I've seen a genuine effort to...
