Re: Visual Effects Society Nominations

Mister Tee wrote So, if Black Panther doesn't make the Oscar cut, what wins this category? I've been saying all year that Ready Player One had the effects that impressed me most, but I never thought it had much chance at winning. But if it comes down to that and, say, Infinity War, would Spielberg'...

Re: USC Scripter Awards

Mister Tee wrote Though it's truly amazing to me that Black Panther, ignored by so many tech areas (today it was omitted by the Visual Effects Society), would find its most positive response, in these prelims, from the writers. Ryan Coogler is a USC grad -- and one of the most promising USC grads i...

Re: USC Scripter Awards

Maybe NYU peeps don't do well with the USC crowd. I don't see nominations for The Aviator, The Wolf of Wall Street, or Hugo.

Visual Effects Society Nominations

Big story is no Black Panther. It's worth noting that Arrival got no love either and didn't make it. I think it's getting snubbed. I think Christopher Robin really has a shot at a nomination. OUTSTANDING VISUAL EFFECTS IN A PHOTOREAL FEATURES. Avengers: Infinity War Christopher Robin Ready Player On...

Re: The Wife

I blame Björn Runge. This is all a bit too broad, muggy, and unimaginative. It's not just that the flashbacks don't mesh with the rest of the film, but rather it doesn't seem like any effort was really made. The flashback scene where Young Joan critiques Young Joe's first draft gives new meaning to ...

In a similar vein, could Jonathan Pryce be this year's Maggie Gyllenhaal?

I thought so... but there's really no excuse for him to miss out on a BAFTA nom is there?

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

We deserve a lot better but we could do a lot worse. This is schlock, but it's surprisingly competent schlock. Well, maybe we shouldn't be so surprised. We're talking about Bryan Singer who may not be the most reliable director in the world but he knows how to step up to the plate (I like Owen Gleib...

Re: Golden Globe reactions

Yeah, that's silly. I don't know anyone here who changed their judgment of her performance from bad to positive, for fear of being out of sync with the big prizes. One thing he is right about is a resistance to the idea of Glenn Close winning an Oscar, but for a different reason. I know I've been ve...

flipp525 wrote Oh, and also, ITALIANO, I’d love for you to cite one single person on this Board (along with their post) who has stated that Lady Gaga should win Best Actress this year. It, quite simply, hasn’t happened. I don't want to speak for Marco, but I think we can all agree that this message...

Would you care if the writer of Schindler's List tweeted about "globalists?" Would you care if the writer of Milk didn't support gay marriage? List of Green Book's "controversies" I don't care about. I don't care that Viggo used the n-word in a Q&A. I don't care that Peter Fa...

Re: Green Book reviews

That’s old news. That’s not great but I don’t really care. I care about Nick being a Trump supporter because it just confirms something we all know about the shallowness of the film’s message of “kindness.”

Re: Green Book reviews

Somebody just unearthed a 2015 tweet from Nick Vallelonga saying: @realDonaldTrump 100% correct. Muslims in Jersey City cheering when towers went down. I saw it, as you did, possibly on local CBS news. Two things: 1) Mahershala Ali must feel great. 2) It was 14 years after the towers fell down and r...

Re: 2018 BAFTA's

Mister Tee wrote Incidentally, I disagree it’s a weak year in the category. By me, King, Adams, Weisz and Stone are easily deserving of note (though the latter is closer to lead), and Foy is a perfectly solid ballot filler (as would be the till-now-ignored Debicki). If you want to argue that no one...
