Re: Everything Is Great Again

My question is "What happens next?" Comey is a big question mark to me, but it seems unlikely that he won't find something incredibly damning considering that half of his job seems like it's already been done for him. Some definition of treason has been committed. What then? Nixon had to d...

Re: Best Screenplay 2014

The Grand Budapest Hotel for sure. Birdman actually reads beautifully and erases some of my problems with the film itself. I'm reconciled to the fact that I'm never going to love this thing, but I'm giving a slight edge over Nightcrawler. Whiplash is my choice for Adapted. Really the only choice. I ...

Re: Best Screenplays 2016

It's possible my vote will change but I'm one of the people who voted for The Lobster. I've yet to see it a second time but it's been about a year since I saw it and it hasn't escaped my mind. It has a fairly dull second half, but I'm hoping that it might enjoy it more on a second viewing or find so...

Re: 89th Oscars: General & Ceremony Discussion

Interesting trend: winning Best Picture does not mean you win the most Oscars. It means another film takes home more trophies (Hugo, Life of Pi, Gravity, Mad Max: Fury Road, La La Land) or you tie with another film at four total (The King's Speech & Inception and Birdman & The Grand Budapest...

Re: 89th Oscars: General & Ceremony Discussion

Italiano wrote I'm not the oldest one here, but I'm old enough and I follow the Oscars since I was a child. And let's say - since I can remember, the only comparable Best Picture upset is Chariots of Fire over, well, mainly over Reds. I thought about that as well. But it's the "mainly over Red...

Re: 89th Oscars: Best Actress

I really like Emma Stone. In addition to being very talented, she is often incredibly funny. I like seeing the leads in romantic comedies win, so I'm not opposed to her victory here (I was Team Huppert) but...what is up with the speeches? Figure it the fuck out! She looked like she was apologizing f...

Re: 89th Oscars: Best Supporting Actress

I missed the first ten seconds of this speech, and turned my head when I heard "graveyard" and "exhume the bodies." I don't mind Davis winning for Fences because it's about as good a performance as we will get from her. It caters to her best instincts. This speech caters to her w...

Re: 89th Oscars: General & Ceremony Discussion

Can we agree that Moonlight's victory over La La Land would constitute the biggest Best Picture upset in the modern era if not history? Whether or not it deserves Best Picture, it didn't even win the SAG Ensemble Award, which Crash, Shakespeare in Love, and Spotlight all did. How far back do we have...
