Re: Categories One-by-One: Original Screenplay

The math that it takes for Green Book to theoretically win would require: A) the WGA's number of writers to make up a small percentage of the Academy's writer's branch (which might be the case), or B) for the addition of The Favourite to have been a non-factor in the WGA's voting last week. I know t...

Big Magilla wrote Probably infrastructure first, but I think he wants the same things as all the other Democrats. He just has a smoother way of promoting them. It seems as though there are two wings of the Democratic party: the values wing and the policy wing. One half of the party is obsessed with...

It's sad to say, but only Joe Biden has the wherewithal and the gravitas to not only win but get the support of both parties to get things done.

What would he want to get done though?

Re: Your best picture ballot

Almost immediately after I wrote what I wrote on this thread, I started to have second thoughts, about what I chose to say and why. I was frustrated but that's no excuse. If there's one place where people should be able to express their opinions exactly as they are it's here. The only truly maliciou...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

OscarGuy wrote Don't forget that Sanders' permissively sexist campaign back in 2016 was as anti-woman as any could be. Even Trump's campaign wasn't that sexist and he's, you know, Trump. There's also Sanders' utter inability to identify with and support LGBTQ equality in a meaningful way. He's as O...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

I remain very torn about Bernie Sanders. It's hard to overstate his influence on today's Democratic Party. He's helped to push progressive ideas into the mainstream. Medicare For All, for example, has something like a 70% approval rating among Americans today. And while both the progressive and the ...

Re: Categories One-By-One: Costume Design

dws1982 wrote It might be worth noticing if The Favourite or Black Panther don't win their respective categories, but then again, you can't read too much into that either: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them lost to a movie that wasn't even nominated for the Oscar. True, but do you really think...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Supporting Actress

I moved my post from the BAFTA thread to here: I'm so annoyed by Best Supporting Actress this year. It's so hard to make the case for Regina King when the only two awards groups with Academy overlap didn't nominate her. At least with Christoph Waltz for Django Unchained, you could make the case that...

Easily my choice for Best Cinematography of the year. I don't think there's a single extraneous or wasted frame in the film.

I would say almost to a fault. I wish the film had a few extraneous, wasted frames.
