Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

That’s fine! Just trying to explore all possibilities. I’m not necessarily predicting him either. It just seems like he was one of the first acting nominees in the conversation (in any category, really).

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

Also, Dunkirk might pull Mark Rylance into the race. He was a name bandied about early on and if we apply BJ’s “bird in the hand” rule he could benefit from the amorphous nature of the category.

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

Does your friend say which Supporting Actor? Michael Stuhlbarg. Personally though, of the several dual-nominee Supporting Actor possibilities this season (The Shape of Water, Three Billboards, Call Me), I think Call Me (and Armie Hammer, has the best shot. I seem to recall Jake Gyllenhaal not being...

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

From a friend of mine: “Saw I, Tonya last night. It’s superb. Hilarious, smart, thoroughly entertaining. Margot Robbie is getting one of those five Best Actress slots. And Allison Janney is in it for the win for Supporting. As great as Laurie Metcalfe is in Lady Bird , LaVona Harding is a part of th...

Re: Lady Bird reviews

This movie was absolutely delightful and far funnier than even the trailer suggested (there were some real belly-laugh moments for me, in particular the “Whose on top for their first time!?” line). As has been mentioned in reviews below, Gerwig does an excellent job of placing the typical coming-of-...

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

I saw Michelle Williams in Cabaret on Broadway a few years ago and it was one of the most electrifying performances I had ever seen on stage. I know that everyone was talking about Emma Stone’s take on Sally Bowles that season (she took over the role for Williams), but I was just astounded when I sa...

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

I think that Allison Williams is worth revisiting for her performance in Get Out. She was mentioned early and the dearth of a strong bench might resurrect her initial buzz. The amorphous quality of the Best Supporting Actor race (coupled with the dual-nominee “duels” mentioned by Sabin) might allow ...

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

I think it’s a great move and Christopher Plummer’s addition will only increase the film’s value. It’s just an added bonus that he was the director’s original choice for the role.

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

It's not as simple as that. Allen's film suffered from horrible writing, not acting. He could remake it until Hell freezes over with the greatest actors in the world, but it wouldn't make it any better. I seem to remember at least one good scene with Mia Farrow, Elaine Stritch and a discussion abou...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

I think we owe it to ourselves to take a moment to enjoy our wins. For the past calendar year, I have been a Debbie Downer. And I for sure thought the Donna Brazille news was a harbinger of doom for us. Today, a transgender woman beat the architect of the bathroom bill. What's a great fucking day. ...

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

ThePianist, have you noticed that no one else posts pics and GIFs in their posts on this board? The reason is because no one does that here (and no one really has in the almost twenty years I’ve been here except for you). I appreciate your enthusiasm, but you should learn and follow the local rules ...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

While Trump is tweeting and bumbling his way through Asia (today’s he’s playing golf with Abe in Tokyo), Mueller has announced that he has enough to indict Michael Flynn and Flynn Jr. Considering all the times that Trump telegraphed to Flynn to “stay strong,” this seems like it will particularly enr...
