Re: PGA Winner

Mister Tee wrote Now, let's recall that Green Book wasn't nominated for SAG Ensemble. So we're guaranteed a different winner a week hence. And, between now and then, it's conceivable Green Book will fail to get a directing nomination. (As has happened to more than one PGA winner: Moulin Rouge, Litt...

Re: PGA Winner

Yesterday, I had a horrible realization about why Green Book could win: we haven't had a travesty this decade yet. Think about it. Every decade, there's a universally reviled, talked about for ages travesty. Whether deserving or not. Last decade, it was Crash. In the 1990's it was Shakespeare in Lov...

Not yet, anyway.

I know this is in reference to her constituents but she is teaching a course to her Democratic colleagues on how to use Twitter. This is both adorable and going to make her a lot of friends.

Re: Final Nominations Predictions

Our good friend Eric also posted his here. I'll just leave the link but it's worth reading. He makes some good points about John David Washington and Sam Elliott.

Final Nominations Predictions

I figure I'd kick this off not with my final nominations but Anne Thompson's at IndieWire.

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

I've been telling my friends all last year, that the Democratic primary will be A) thirty people running, and B) a vicious mess. They didn't believe me. Some even dubiously claimed they would work it all out and line up behind an establishment candidate like Joe Biden or Kamala Harris. I really need...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Big Magilla wrote I have no idea. Her district is safely blue, but whether she keeps the seat depends on a myriad of things. She won her primary because of low turnout. If her district has low turnout in the next election or she impresses those who didn't turn out then to vote for her the second ti...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

It's pretty clear that if you want to enjoy Mission: Impossible -- Fallout, you should probably overpay to see it on the big screen. If you don't, you're not going to enjoy it as much. For example, the Paris Car Chase Scene. I've seen this kind of thing done so many times but it's executed really we...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Big Magilla wrote I neither love nor hate her, but if she expects to be around for a while she needs to tone it down. She's one of those people that is always on, taking up all the oxygen in whatever room she's in. Do you expect that she will be primaried by somebody else? Her district has been blu...

Re: Visual Effects Society Nominations

Mister Tee wrote Another view might be that Suicide Squad, while a godawful movie, did have more impressive and more original make-up than the other nominees. The perceived favorite, Star Trek: Who Can Remember What Number, was seen as a staggeringly dull choice. And, like in the 2016 election, apa...

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.
