Re: 90th Oscars: Ceremony & Pre-Show Discussion

If I may add, this shouldn't necessarily be a matter of huge contention. Some enjoy the Oscars with a good strong dose of politics. Others can agree with those politics and their advocacy, but still prefer a lighter dose during the Oscars with more of a focus on movies. One or the other of these cho...

Re: Oscar Predictions Contest

Thank you, everyone. It may blow Mister Tee's and others' fun in guessing the winners, but I do believe that it will be easier to predict the winners from now on, due to all the opinions out in the media. There were a ton of 23/24 predictors on Gold Derby, whereas they used to be very rare. THE RESU...

Re: Oscar Predictions Contest

Since (except for Icarus) all the faves won, I assume there were at least a few that got 100%. I went for Baby Driver in Film Editing and Sound Mixing because there were complaints about plot confusion and difficulty hearing the dialogue in Dunkirk. Seems Baby Driver not big enough to compete, despi...

Re: Academy Members' Brutally Honest Ballots

Fascinating. It seems to imply that while more diverse, the numbers are not there to make huge differences. Ah. This is not exactly a "Brutally Honest" ballot article but this is an article about the new Academy members. They polled 14 new members of the Academy to see how they voted this ...

Re: BAFTA Nominations & Predictions

I think it's important to note that Three Billboards is partly considered a UK film; therefore, the hometown crowd may have been biased towards it for its lineage. The two films that have done the best by far with the tv precursors are The Shape of Water and Three Billboards. It would seem to me tha...

Re: London Film Critics Circle Awards

My bad. Had no inkling there was a need to see Paddington 2.

OscarGuy wrote:He plays multiple roles in the film. All the same person, but all requiring a great deal of acting. He was nominated at BAFTA, so they clearly saw something worthy in his performance.

Re: SAG Nominations and Predictions

Part of it - though not necessarily the entire explanation - is that social media has exponentially facilitated widespread discussion, vetting, and consensus. Folks still have their own opinions, but the world is coming closer together. I want to re-route this season through to about 1992, when ther...

Re: National Society of Film Critics awards

Keep in mind that the members of the NSFC who don't live in or near the major media markets may not get to see a film until right before it's national release date.

Re: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri reviews

I have to respectfully disagree with the assertion that Mildred (McDormand)’s role is that of steadfast fury battling against systemic and cultural impediments to justice. It has been argued that one of those intentional roadblocks is the “patronizing” attitude of fellow town folk, who while express...
