Re: Reactions

I wouldn't watch it myself. I've already seen a feature film that deals with this very subject matter and it was one of the most disturbing cinema experiences of my life. I'm not going back for seconds thank you: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-01-23/james-bulgers-mother-disgusted-by-oscar-nominat...

Re: Reactions

Reza, do you still think Colman's chances of winning Best Actress are ZERO? Actually, YES!! I think you guys are maybe underestimating Close's performance and are focusing instead more on the fact that she is in a small, somewhat inconsequential film. Not only is she due, of course, but on its own ...

Re: Reactions

I had predicted Yalitza Aparicio but am extremely happy about the surprise nod for Marina De Tavira even if it came at the expense of a nod for Claire Foy.

Pity Ethan Hawke missed out but glad Paul Schrader finally got his first Oscar nod.

Vice (Adam McKay, 2018) 3/10 The rise and rise of former Vice President Dick Cheney, the power behind the throne of President George W. Bush. Christian Bale, wearing heavy facial prosthetics, does a grotesque caricature of the toad-like and very bland Cheney with Amy Adams as his dumpy Lady Macbeth-...

Re: PGA Winner

Hopefully it won't deter AMPAS from nominating it in various categories including Best Supporting Actress where Claire Foy has sadly been losing traction in prognosticators' predictions. Which is such a pity because Foy is outstanding in First Man. I'm rooting for her to get a nod followed by a win...

I didn't quite understand this, Mister Tee. Are you saying that Green Book, although set in 1962, should have had a 2018 mind-set on race in America?

Re: Green Book reviews

For example the fact that lately each year there MUST be at least one black actor - or actress - among the four winners - deservedly or not deservedly. In the recent Mary, Queen of Scots not only there are several black actors - and yes, in England and Scotland in those times there WERE black peopl...

Yes unfortunately you haven't progressed.......as far as race relations are concerned. Which is probably why Hollywood feels the need to reward films like Green Book out of sheer guilt.

Re: The Nominations Announcement

I don't know if I'll be able to watch it either way this year. I'm having my annual heating maintenance between 8 and 12 am on Tuesday. If the guy comes early, I will be in the basement watching him instead of the Oscar announcement. It's an appointment I had to make three months ahead of time so I...

Boy Erased (Joel Edgerton, 2018) 7/10 I kept thinking of Nazi death camps as this film progressed. The humiliation and shame forced on young men and women makes this true story extremely uncomfortable to watch. Gay conversion therapy is apparently a norm in 36 states in the United States. And it's l...

Re: Golden Globe reactions

Yes it's annual. Yes it's going to be for TV only unlike the DeMille. It's also going to be named the Carol Burnett Award. Dick Van Dyke should be the recipient next year before its too late. I was thinking Betty White, but Van Dyke would be a wonderful choice too. Some others who could well win th...
