Re: Screen Actors Guild Awards

Roma wins foreign film, Star (or Green Card) gets best picture while Cuaron wins director. The Ang Lee scenario... two Best Director awards and no Best Picture... how unlikely is that? Quite the contrary can be said: Caurón might benefit from his previous lost in BP (the "overdue" sense)....

Re: Roma reviews

So Cooper won't get 5 Oscar nods since his songs weren't sumbitted... he's up now "just" for Picture, Director, Leading Actor and Screenplay. But Cuarón can easily achieve this feat: he individually is up for Picture, Director, Screenplay, Cinematography and Editing, though apparently the ...

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

For what it’s worth, in 2000 Björk received a GG nomination for Best Actress in a MP - Drama, for Dancer in the Dark, a decidedly dramatic original musical.

Guess some other recent examples from this category may include Viola Davis (Doubt), Ruby Dee (American Gangster) and Dench (Shakespeare in Love).

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

However, it is not surprising: part of what is done in the company for which I work now, when evaluating candidates to fill vacancies in different jobs, is to review their social networks, and I understand that it is a common practice. What about candidates who never used social networks? They are ...

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

The Original BJ wrote Its use of Visual Effects were egregiously shoddy, so even though it's a weak field, I'd say probably not. Look at Arrival. And this was very unexpected. The final battle actually displayed some of the worst cgi of the year. However, if the Academy really goes bananas for the ...

Re: Screen Actors Guild Awards

Bohemian Rhapsody?? (Insert queasy emoji.) This has to be one of the more obscure casts nominated. It's Rami Malek, incognito Mike Myers and some British character actors. This has to be a case of SAG voters treating best ensemble as best picture. Was anyone talking about that cast? Obviously not h...

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

If we can conclude something of all this is that the background check for host candidates in future editions will take an eternity, since it will involve reviewing everything the person has said on social networks. It'll be like checking the backgrounds of a nominee to become an Associate Justice of...

Re: The 19th Annual Who'll Be Back?

It is probably cheating to name Michelle Pfeiffer here, but her last nomination was a quarter century ago and no matter what people thought of mother!, they seemed to praise her return to form (I still haven't seen it). If she can get another juicy role in a film that holds any sort of awards tract...

Superb post, great reading indeed.

Michelle Williams should be in this group as well. And a case can be made also for Jessica Chastain. Incidentally, both of them manage to be satellite options up to nominations morning.

Re: Trivia

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is only the 6th film ever to win both Actress and Supporting Actor awards, and the 1st to do so since Cabaret without winning BP.

Re: Best Supporting Actress 1978

I had the pleasure of meeting Dame Maggie Smith last month while I was dining at the Ivy in London attending a special celebrity server night. (Smith was a diner, not a server.) She was dining with four others, including Samantha Bond who played her daughter Rosamund on Downton Abbey . After dinner...
