R.I.P. Bill Paxton

Story

Only 61. Very young.

I wonder if the Oscars will try and edit him in the In Memoriam montage.

Re: Short Take On The Shorts

I saw three of the nominated Documentary Shorts. I'd be very surprised if Extremis won. The film is not bad. It's quite compelling and thought-provoking. But it's such a DOWNER (all caps). It's about a doctor discussing end of life management with her patients. It's probably gonna depress a lot of t...

THE RED TURTLE Cast: N/A Dir: Michael Dudok de Wit. This is a mostly dialogue-free film about a shipwrecked man who encounters the titular creature as he tries to escape his predicament but something strange happens which I won't be revealing here. This is one of the nominees for the Best Animated F...

Re: Oscar Voter Reveals Her Brutally Honest Ballot

The article reads like something Sasha would write. If you check the comments section, Sasha Stone herself came in and defended this article. She said she loved La La Land when she saw it back in September but Trump's win made her see it in a different light. Okay, I hate Trump but I think that's f...

Re: Oscar Voter Reveals Her Brutally Honest Ballot

This is even worse.

The author practically accuses Damien Chazelle of being a Nazi.

Re: Oscar Voter Reveals Her Brutally Honest Ballot

Yet another piece on The Guardians website bashing La La Land, this one by David Cox (never heard of him). He concludes his piece with these two sentences: "La La Land’s victory on Sunday night will tell us something about our era. But it will be no triumph for film-makers, filmgoers or film.&...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Original Song

I'll still be shocked if anything other than "City of Stars" wins this, but I do understand the push to split the music awards between Pasek and Paul who are going to win this year's Tony for Dear Evan Hansen and Miranda, who won multiple prizes last year for Hamilton. You know, if things...

The nominees: Fire at Sea I Am Not Your Negro Life, Animated OJ: Made in America 13th This is another interesting race. Even though OJ is probably the de facto front-runner here, I hear there are some Academy members who think its inclusion here is bullshit and that it is a TV miniseries who only go...

13TH Cast: N/A. Dir: Ava DuVernay. The title refers to the 13th Amendment which freed black people from slavery but contains a caveat that though all men are free and equal, prisoners are not and how people in charge have exploited this loophole throughout the years in an effort to keep minorities i...

The nominees: Arrival Fences Hidden Figures Lion Moonlight Moonlight just won the ORIGINAL Screenplay prize at the WGA which should makes this a slam dunk. But oddly enough the other four have a legitimate claim to the prize as well: Arrival just won in this category at the WGA so it could be runnin...
