Re: Anonymous Academy Members Ballots

Think about the kind of people who will talk on the record about their ballots. They are probably washed-up has-beens who lament the state of film today because they cannot get work. I doubt they are truly representative of the Academy as a whole. At least one hopes not.

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Don't forget that Sanders' permissively sexist campaign back in 2016 was as anti-woman as any could be. Even Trump's campaign wasn't that sexist and he's, you know, Trump. There's also Sanders' utter inability to identify with and support LGBTQ equality in a meaningful way. He's as Old White Guard a...

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

There are a number of things that can affect your voice and how it sounds, including the size and shape of your mouth, teeth, and nasal cavity. Having to change how you hold your tongue could impact vocal patterns, cadence, and more. I'm not sure it can increase your range, but it does have an impac...

Re: The 2019 Grammys

Post Malone is awful. Janelle Monae was fantastic, the Dolly Parton tribute was solid. Kacey Musgraves' solo performance was good. The opening Havana event was terrific. Lady Gaga was mediocre at best and her rocked-up version of the non-rocked-up song Shallow was a misfire. I thought H.E.R. was als...

Re: Categories One-by-Two: Sound Editing & Sound Mixing

By your rationale, DWS, would A Quiet Place fit into the "surprised it wasn't nominated in mixing" category? Most people were predicting it to get nominated there as well and, unlike the other Sound Editing nominations, it fits the category really well in what it accomplishes and voters CA...

Re: Your best picture ballot

Jeffrey Wells is a misogynistic bastard. If Sundance had revoked Trump's press credentials, would anyone but the most sexist, racist, xenophobic jerks be upset about it? Diversity of voice is as important as diversity of output.

Re: Your best picture ballot

I don't know where I'd break the eight apart and If Beale Street Could Talk very much deserved to be on this list, but to rank the Best Pictures (which I binged the last 3 of today), here's what I would rank them. 1. BlacKkKlansman - The second best film about racism this year and, were it nominated...

Re: SAG Predictions

Your comment, Taki, is no different than saying that the only reason people could possibly like it is some progressive hyper politically correct statement. It's no different than saying Spike Lee was only nominated for Best Directing because he's black. That kind of rhetoric is insulting to me and a...

Re: SAG Predictions

OscarGuy wrote If you're referring to the godawful Avengers: Infinity War, then that says all it has to about your taste in movies. I agree with Taki. I liked Infinity War more than Black Panther. The public would agree with you. Critics, however, do not, as Black Panther performed better with majo...

Re: SAG Predictions

So none of "Black Panther"'s actors were deemed worthy of a nomination, but the movie wins Best Ensemble? How the hell can anyone explain this other than that it's a blatantly political decision? Gosh, I never liked much that film but I'm now starting to hate it. Here's the post that spon...

Re: SAG Predictions

Come now, Taki, I only returned the tone and tenor of your response to me. Come down off that cross, Jesus. Someone needs the wood. As to Black Panther, I think you may have completely missed the point of what was being done. Clear-cut black-and-white good-vs-evil was not the intention. It's that vi...
