Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

They're in the drama category because they're dramas. You're saying there's no such thing as a drama set in the music world. Would they have to cut all the concert scenes to qualify as dramas? (I know about Walk the Line and Ray. They should have been in the drama category, too.) Yet they gave 5 Gl...

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

But the best argument against why First Man didn't get a nomination is that the studios cheated by pushing A Star is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody for Drama instead of Comedy/Musical. To which I say, if your best defense is that you were up against Bohemian Rhapsody, there's other problems. This is so...

I agree. It's certainly one of the best of this year at least.

Re: Ladies and gentlemen – The Leadometer!

5. The MVP. These are the members of an evenly spread ensemble piece who seem to stand out, for some reason. They are the likes of David Niven, Glenda Jackson #1, McDormand #1 as well. These particular three stand out not for "some reason" but for very specific reasons within the confines...

BEST SUPPORTING MALE
BLACK PANTHER / Michael B. Jordan


Don't you think Jordan's nod as part of the ensemble in Black Panther is enough that he has to take this slot too? I think Chalamet will get this spot very easily.

BOY ERASED / Ethan Hawke

Comments: I'm just not sure they're going to like First Reformed more than Boy Erased.


I guess you really want Hawke to get in :D

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

Reza wrote All these supposed nods have a strong whiff of Doctor Dolittle from way back yonder though to give it some credit at least Black Panther is far more entertaining if equally popcorn fare. This ignores what a cultural phenomenon the film was. Yes very true. The first film about black cultu...

Oscar Prospects: Too bad it's not doing too well at the box-office. It does deserve at least Adapted Screenplay, Actress, Supporting Actress (Debicki & Rodriguez) and Film Editing.

Grade: A-


Rodriguez has the same glum expression throughout as in all the Fast & Furious films.

The Original BJ wrote It's getting the PGA nod for sure. The WGA has a way more populist contingent than the Academy's writers' branch, so it's probably in there too. SAG Ensemble isn't out of the question either (Roma isn't their style, and Green Book and A Star is Born have tiny enough casts to b...

Re: Golden Globe Awards

The reason why both A Star is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody are competing in the drama category is because they are technically not musicals. They have concert sequences and the characters don't break into song for the cinema audience as in all actual musicals - the Astaire films, Gigi, My Fair Lady et...

Kevin Hart has a box office average of the 22 films he's been in of $83 million. His big hits were Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle ($400 million+), Central Intelligence, Ride Along, and Think Like a Man (all at or just over $100 million). His film this year, opposite Tiffany Haddish (who I assume yo...

Widows (Steve McQueen, 2018) 5/10 This heist movie throws in everything and the kitchen sink - police brutality, sexism, interracial marriage, a tough talking black woman wielding a gun - and is very busy with loads of characters but not enough screen time to do any of them justice. There's just too...

Every Day (Michael Sucsy, 2018) 3/10 Pretty high schooler falls for a person called "A" who inhabits a different person's body - boys and girls of every race and gender possible which in itself is the glaring message - every 24 hours making the relationship kinda dicey. Stupid premise, bas...

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

As time goes on I am getting less interested in contemporary cinema that doesn't fall directly into my sphere of personal interest. And I have almost zero interest in up and coming younger actors. None of them have that star quality and aura of the stars of yesteryear. Thank God for old movies from...
