Re: Best Cinematography 1991

First time participating in a while... Good group. The Silence of the Lambs is the most obvious omission in this category, but it's a very common sort of snub. I think it's easy to confuse the cinematography for directing. The snub by Howard Shore is also baffling. It's easily one of the more memora...

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

bizarre wrote Supporting Actor is such a bloodbath though I'd totally expect them to throw a bone to someone like Odenkirk. He has one "fun" line in the trailer, he plays the supporting character most featured in the script, and they did give do-nothing nominations to Ruffalo (bad) and Mc...

Re: The Best Picture Formula Ramble

mlrg wrote From your assessment it could very well be The Shape of Water Well, I think Three Billboards... looks more likely at this point. There's a chance it walks home with nothing. But sure! Who knows? The only thing holding me back from predicting The Shape of Water at this point is we don't k...

I decided to take your Three Billboards quote and shift it here... Further down in my post, I wrote that usually when we have a wide ...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

Weapon of choice against every Democrat running for re-election. The bar has been set at butt-grabbing. This could be very bad.

But most disconcerting, let’s hope nobody can find anything on Mueller.

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Greg wrote Biden wouldn't have been the scourge of the Democratic Party if Sanders beat Trump. I fall somewhere in the middle of the “rigging” of the Democratic Party thing. But I do think that with Hillary Clinton, a lot of people within the establishment made a lot of plans and felt very confiden...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

A few thoughts on Joe Biden... I think Joe Biden is a Democrat who is built for the general election, not the primaries. If he could have somehow escaped them, I think he would have been a better candidate to defeat Donald Trump than Hillary Clinton was. I don't claim to know the man's mind, but it ...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

For those of you who are wondering, President Trump's approval rating is higher than Suicide Squad, but still lower than Justice League.

It just seems like he was one of the first acting nominees in the conversation (in any category, really). I mean, you're right. He unfortunately has to be in the conversation as is the a...

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

flipp525 wrote Also, Dunkirk might pull Mark Rylance into the race. He was a name bandied about early on and if we apply BJ’s “bird in the hand” rule he could benefit from the amorphous nature of the category. No. That's nonsense. I know he's going to end up getting a BAFTA nomination, but I will b...

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

flipp525 wrote Personally though, of the several dual-nominee Supporting Actor possibilities this season (The Shape of Water, Three Billboards, Call Me), I think Call Me (and Armie Hammer), has the best shot. Could be wrong, but it's hard to look at The Shape of Water as a film that gets several ac...

Re: The Best Picture Formula Ramble

FilmFan720 wrote It might not have been their thinking right out, but I think you have to allow that it has some (maybe even subconscious) part of their playing. There is certainly a shift that allows voters to even consider No Country a viable nominee, let alone contender. In the 80s, when there w...
