Re: WGA Nominations

One of BJ's wishes just came true. 'Arrival' just won Best Adapted Screenplay.

Re: Poll: Rename "Life Under Trump"

I'm in favor of "New Developments" as well. I understand the desire to make light of this situation. You'll note that I suggested the title "The End of Times: The Early Days" and "We're Fucked." I personally lean a little more towards "We're Fucked" but to be ...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Supporting Actor

Interesting little time-waster that I did... In the past twelve years, the SAG, Globes, and Baftas split three times: 2015: the Globes went with Stallone, SAG with Elba, Baftas with Rylance. 2007: the Globes went with Blanchett, SAG with Dee, Baftas with Swinton. 2005: the Globes went with Clooney, ...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Supporting Actor

Part of me thinks that Dev Patel won because he's a British actor. The BAFTAS like honoring British actors. So it shouldn't be taken too seriously. But I think that ignores the fact that Mahershala Ali would be an unusual winner in this category. He has no big emotional scenes. He's just consistentl...

How about "We're fucked"?

How about "End of Times: The Early Days"?

Re: Categories One-by-One: Sound Editing

According to wikipedia: "Sound editing is the creation of sound effects (such as foley)." However, according to Academy history, it would appear that the Sound Editing Oscar goes to the Best Picture nominee that looks like it has the most sound effects. For example, Gravity's nomination an...

Re: Our Top 10 of 2016

The way I look at movies is changing rapidly every year. I find more to appreciate, less to outright dismiss, but enthusiasm is an increasingly rare thing especially as it competes with changes in life. Which makes me cherish that enthusiasm even more. To the best of my recollection, these are the m...

Re: Independent Spirit Award Nominations

The Original BJ wrote After November, I feel like I never want to make another prediction again, but I just can't ration away a scenario where La La Land gets upset by anything.

Re: DGA Nominees/Winners

I'm not sure I agree with you, Magilla. Yes, I think the reason why we're not posting so much about these guilds is because it is such a foregone conclusion, but we're doubtlessly headed towards the most watched Oscar ceremony in years. I think to a degree, we are out touch. Last month, moviegoers f...

Re: ASC Nominations

I think that if there was one guild that La La Land was going to lose, this one isn't so far fetched. Because at the end of the day, there is a difference between great cinematography and moving the camera around a lot. While that opening number is impressive, there is an ugly quality to how the lig...
