Re: Honorary Oscars Wish Lists and Speculation

This is just the Academy pandering the black card. Nothing else. It makes them look good with Tyson becoming the first African-American actress to win an honorary award. This is really gross; you sound like a Deplorable. Yes, the only reason black people are given awards is to appease PC culture /e...

Re: Festival Line-ups

Do you think that Olivia Colman is becoming an early “favorite” for Supporting Actress?

Re: The Deuce

I’m definitely tuning in tonight. Earlier today, I watched the season finale to refresh myself. I’m excited for the time jump. It’s the year before I came on the scene!

Re: At Danceteria and Other Stories by Philip Dean Walker

I have a quick favor to ask. Amazon customer reviews are important for increasing search engine optimization and help promote work by authors who are not part of the “Big Five” in publishing. As you may know, I have published two collections of short stories in the past couple of years: At Danceteri...

Re: Honorary Oscars Wish Lists and Speculation

Honorary Oscars will go to Cicely Tyson, composer Lalo Schifrin and publicist Marvin Levy and the Irving G. Thalberg award will go to Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall. A bit of a strange choice giving it to Cicely Tyson for her "career in films" especially since apart from Sounder she ...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Simultaneously frustrating yet brilliant in away, releasing this op-ed anonymously. On the one hand we yearn to know who it could be, but on the other one imagines President Trump dismissing this as a stunt by the NY Times -- "fake news" and so he might not even bother trying to figure ou...

Re: Destroyer reviews

Precious Doll, I obviously haven’t seen Destroyer so I can’t personally describe what her performance is like. I was just sending word from a friend of mine who actually has seen the film and says that her performance is phenomenal and next-level. I’m passing along substantiated audience reaction to...

Re: Destroyer reviews

My out-there, yet educated guess for now is that Nicole Kidman gets a lead nod for Destroyer and a supporting nod for Boy Erased. A friend of mine saw Destroyer in Telluride and said that Kidman is extraordinary, Theron in Monster level of transformation. We are in a Kidmanassaince.

Re: The VCR / DVR / Streaming Alert Thread

For completists:

A Special Day is being aired tonight on TCM at 8pm. In 1977, it was nominated for two Oscars: Best Foreign Film and Best Actor (Marcello Mastroianni).

Which is interesting as the entire Calhoun Day thing was not even in the book. Totally invented for the series.

Re: 2018 Tony Awards

You guys have covered a lot of my general thoughts about the overall show already, so I'll just pop in to say that I'm so happy for Laurie Metcalf’s relatively unexpected Tony win for Best Featured Actress in a Play for Three Tall Women last night. I was very much thinking they were going to give it...
