Re: Campaign 2020

Okri wrote Sabin, thank-you for your comments. All I'll say is that if Biden is the Democratic nominee, I don't believe that the Democrats will win. I say this as someone who isn't a big fan of Joe Biden: how can anyone look at Hillary Clinton's 3 million+ popular vote victory, subtract sexism, rep...

This is my first election as a newly minted Democrat (following 23 years as a Republican), so I'm very aware that Donald Trump can win this election if we choose the wrong candidate here. We have to keep that in mind.

Never thought I'd see the day. Welcome, sir! Glad to have you.

Re: Campaign 2020

The National Review shared a tweet from a Senate aide who said: "this s*** is hilarious because it sounds like both something Bernie would say and Elizabeth Warren would make up." This has been a very sad day for me as a Democrat. This "battle of the sexes nonsense" proves that s...

Re: Campaign 2020

I got Warren at 16, Sanders and Steyer at 14, Gabbard at 11, Buttigieg and Klobuchar at 10, and Biden and Bloomberg at 8.

So... I like these guys.

Re: Your best picture ballot

My ballot:
1. Parasite
2. The Irishman, Little Women
4. Marriage Story, Joker
6. Jojo Rabbit
7. Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood
8. Ford v Ferrari

Haven't seen 1917. The Irishman and Little Women could flip on second viewing.

Oh, let’s calm down. It’s an homage. He took inspiration from it. And who even cares? These movies are between twenty-five and thirty-five years old. I really don’t understand anyone waving *that* flag anymore than I understand someone railing against Tarantino. Joker is not a seminal masterpiece. I...

First Winner Predictions

Comments when applicable: Best Picture: Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood (Too early to tell but despite an editing nomination, it seems like the front-runner at this point. No point in going out on a limb for The Irishman, Parasite, or 1917 when it's OUATIH is probably the most front-runner to win t...

Re: 92nd Oscar Nominations Announcement

Okri wrote I don't think having middlebrow taste and the idea of entrenched racism is mutually exclusive. Especially since middlebrow taste often means films centered on cis/straight/white/male. And while there are definitely years where the idea of "OscarSoWhite" is a reasonable, if unfo...

Re: 92nd Oscar Nominations Announcement

Greg wrote You mentioned Driving Miss Daisy as the last film to win Best Picture without a DGA nomination. The big difference is that Bruce Beresford also failed to get an Oscar nomination for Best Director. Todd Philips is nominated for Best Director. That's a good point. I still think it's probab...

Re: 92nd Oscar Nominations Announcement

Greg wrote After today's announcements, how many think that Joker could win Best Picture. Phoenix is probably a lock now for Best Actor. Joker doesn't have a Director's Guild of America nomination. That works against it in a big way. That said with 11 nominations, it has to be considered in the run...

Re: 92nd Oscar Nominations Announcement

It's conceivable that five films can win: The Irishman, Jojo Rabbit, 1917, Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood, Parasite. I understand that Joker has 11 nominations but without a Director's Guild nomination puts Joker at a big disadvantage. Driving Miss Daisy was the last film to win without one. Very ...

Re: 92nd Oscar Nominations Announcement

When was the last time four films got ten nominations or more? Has that ever happened? A few noteworthy surprises. I suppose Greta Gerwig not getting in could constitute a snub although she wasn't nominated pretty much anywhere for Best Director. Jennifer Lopez for Hustlers is the big one. I had a s...

Re: The Irishman reviews

dws1982 wrote What was the significance of Pesci's character making DeNiro give him his glasses before he went to carry out the hit on Hoffa? It seemed too deliberate of a choice (especially since it then made a point to show, after he came back from the hit, Pesci returning the glasses) to be mean...
