Re: New Oscar Rules

I think this is slightly in response to The Revenant two years ago, which saw its score found ineligible because it had three different composers which violated the rules. I also wonder if this is a reaction to controversies they saw coming down the road. It seems like more and more filmmakers, part...

Re: Ryan Murphy mentions Damien

What a wonderful quote to read. Just got back from Spring Break vacation, so we are behind on the show, but enjoying it enough. The acting is superb, and while I struggle with Murphy when he leans too far into the grotesque, this mostly keeps everything with an honest undertone that keeps me riveted...

Re: Everything Is Great Again

No, criddic is right. President is only capitalized when preceding a proper name, at least according to AP and MLA, the two most popular style guides.

Re: The 18th Annual Who'll Be Back?

Mister Tee, thanks as always for this. Always a highlight. For the bonus round, I would cite Garth Davis as a director who I imagine is going to start getting prime material (this year he has a Mary Magdalene biopic) and could be back very soon. As far as actors, I will avoid my annual "What th...

Re: Trivia

Not surprisingly, Steven Spielberg seems to be the only director to get his films a nomination in every category (except the now-defunct Song Score).

Re: Trivia

I'm thinking Scorsese has had the best showing in this angle -- his films have won Oscars in all categories but original screenplay (both Gangs of New York and The Aviator were at least nominated there), original score, song (The Hands That Built America was actually the favorite there, but lost) a...

Yeah, why the rush? Can't we slow down a tad?

Re: Trivia

It has now been 12 years since we had a Best Picture winner with a Best Actress nomination. Ironically, the last 4 Best Picture winners, and 6 of the last 7, have had a Supporting Actress nomination.

Re: Trivia

This may be more of a Chicago thing, but Tarell Alvin McCraney became the first Steppenwolf Ensemble Member to win an Oscar...impressive and sad when you look at the other names on that list!

Re: Categories One-by-One: Production Design

What if we are discounting Passengers here too much? While not a box office smash, it did well enough (and very well overseas) to recoup its budget. It won the ADG Award over more "popular" films like Arrival. It picked up two Oscar nominations when many of us didn't see it getting any, me...
