Re: My first Oscar predictions!

anonymous1980 wrote Here's what I think the state of the Oscar race is currently in pre-Globes/SAG/guilds: Tier 1 = Near 100% or 100% nomination guaranteed. Tier 2 = Nomination likely but a snub wouldn't be TOO surprising. Tier 3 = 50/50, has a fighting chance but neither too likely or guaranteed. ...

Re: Best Actress 2019

Not a great lineup and not for lack of options: * Adèle Haenel, Portrait of a Lady on Fire * Noémie Merlant, Portrait of a Lady on Fire * Elisabeth Moss, Her Smell * Lupita Nyong'o, Us * Mary Kay Place, Diane * Florence Pugh, Midsommar Among many others. Surprisingly, Lupita Nyong'o got a SAG nomina...

Re: The Golden Globes Predictions Contest

Big Magilla wrote I'm mixed on most films this year but I see Promising Young Woman as a black comedy, not a serious drama, which makes its Globe placement seem a little odd. In fact, it's the only comedy this year that I thought was truly outstanding, which makes it stand out more than it otherwis...

Re: The Golden Globes Predictions Contest

Reza wrote The less I say about Promising the better. Unfortunately there are too many hysterical people on this board and I don't want them to get into a frenzy and start frothing at their mouths and wetting their pants :P I'm confused. I don't really like the film. It sounds like I might like it ...

Re: The Golden Globes Predictions Contest

Reza wrote "Promising" because I got flak for my comments on it here (although I liked it well enough). It is a "politically correct" movie about a very un-politically correct subject which suits the mood of your Country today. Nobody can question or comment on anything anymore ...

Re: Nomadland

mlrg wrote I totally understand this point. I was lucky enough to have seen the film on the big screen last November and I believe that the impact of its scope is much different if seen on a tv screen. Yep. Had I seen it on the big screen, no doubt I would've liked it more. The same could be said o...

Re: The Golden Globes Predictions Contest

Reza, you usually do pretty well with these awards. Can I ask why you see Promising Young Woman taking this? And why Kaluuya?

Re: Nomadland

There are moments when Nomadland is alive and there are moments when it is not. It ends up feeling like a lot of different things that don't really gel together. It's one woman's journey of return but it's also about The Great Recession. But it's not a screed against capitalism, but it's also about ...

Re: Stay Safe Everyone!

I wonder if "Stay Safe Everyone!" becomes the message board thread that gets the most activity over the course of the coming years if not decade. As a resident of Los Angeles, I've been spared the polar vortex and power outages. I'm sure there will be fires and earthquakes to suffer as the...

Re: My first Oscar predictions!

Pretty soon we'll have Golden Globe and SAG winners as well as some very key precursors. I'll just update my predictions here. My "Go big or go home" stab in the dark is that Judas and the Black Messiah is a late-starter. BEST PICTURE Mank Minari Nomadland One Night in Miami The Trial of t...

Re: Rush Limbaugh is Dead

I'm seeing a lot of people online drawing comparisons to how people on the right reacted to the death of RBG to how we on the left are reacting to Limbaugh's death. I will admit to being horrified by the idea of anyone viewing the passing of Limbugh as being analogous or more worthy of mourning than...

Re: Writers' Guild Nominations

The big winner is Judas and the Black Messiah. In less than a week past its "wide release" (on HBO), it picks up its first statue beyond Daniel Kaluuya for supporting actor. The film may be late out of the gate but it's certainly getting eyeballs right in a field that certainly does not fe...

Re: Satellite Awards

dws1982 wrote She may very well win again this year, but if they had just held off on McDormand a few years ago, you get the feeling she would be a slam dunk this year. (Of course if Nomadland wins Best Picture, she wins there, which would make her one of the few people to win for producing and act...

Re: Best Supporting Actor 2019

All five performances are good and largely triumphs of casting. One could make the argument that Al Pacino works the hardest in his role to carve out a memorable portrait of Jimmy Hoffa. Daniel is right that Pacino is louder than Pesci so he seems more dominant in The Irishman but more so than Al Pa...
