Re: Oscar Predictions & Race Discussion Thread - July to Toronto

There have been lots of films about underage boys having affairs/sexual encounters with older women that are still well-received, not controversial and beloved today and some of them got nominated for Oscars: Summer of '42 (got 5 Oscar noms, including Screenplay), Murmur of the Heart (got a Screenpl...

Re: 2016-2017 Emmy Awards

Nominations have been announced. Some random thoughts: They nominated Stranger Things across the board, including nominations for David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown and Barb but they managed to snub the series' biggest star, Winona Ryder. Pasek and Paul will no longer be able to EGOT in one year. Th...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2017

DC hero could only play a Marvel villain right...haha. You rank him above Molina...are you counting him as an option? Also you said cinematic so maybe it is a definite you aren't including Ali or D'Onofrio...am I correct? I will say one arena where television has definitely upped the ante over film...

Re: Psychic Oscar Predictions Contest!

Well, you have misunderstood. The only ones forced to move to emeritus status are those who haven't worked in at least 3 different ten-year periods. It's a convoluted thing, but someone like Gene Hackman, who hasn't worked in more than ten years now would still be eligible to vote because he had wo...

OscarGuy wrote:"A large number of us haven't seen it yet." That's what I said, Anonymous. Don't make it sound like I said "none of us" have seen it.


You said "none of us has attended those" film festivals. I pointed out Precious Doll attended the Sydney one. That's what I meant.

Re: Halfway Through 2017

The reason none of us are talking about it is that a large number of us haven't seen it yet. It's played three festivals so far: Sundance, Berlinale, Sydney. None of us have attended those (well, I don't know about Sabin, but I didn't see him post about going to Sundance, so I doubt it). It doesn't...

Re: Psychic Oscar Predictions Contest!

Think about the addition of 774 new members, just over 10% of the membership. With those additions, the diversity went up little. Women went from 27% representation to 28%. POC went from 11% to 13%. Those are statistically insignificant increases. Yes, it's nice that they are diversifying, but whit...

Re: Psychic Oscar Predictions Contest!

I haven't seen Call Me By Your Name but I know a few people who have seen it, they love it, but they don't think it's going to win because it's, for lack of a better word, too European. But it's clearly going to be a conversation piece which will keep it in the game, so it has to be considered some...
