Re: New Academy Members

Some of these may be Academy members or among those who turned down or simply ignored invitations from the days before invitations were made public. Lucky if it would be 10% - I did a check of some of the more known well actors from the link Anonymous provided and didn't include anyone that has act...

Re: New Academy Members

I've been compiling a list a male actors that would make appropriate members IMO and funnily enough could not come up with as many names as I could for females. This might partially have to do with that there are more films made outside of the US with better roles for women and that women do tend to...

Re: Foreign Language Film Watch

Sweden - Border or Ted - Show Me Love (aka A Moon of My Own) Sweden have two possibilities, neither of which are likely to make any head way into the competition. I'm not aware of any other Swedish films at this point that Sweden would consider and given that one of the films (Border) has internatio...

Re: Best Cinematography 2008

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was an easy choice for me with The Dark Knight being the only other notable candidate. Wasn't a particularly strong year for English language films in this category with the most impressive work done internationally in mostly films probably not eligible until the ...

Re: Foreign Language Film Watch

Iran - No Date, No Signature The second film from Vahid Jalilvand was warmly received at last years Venice Film Festival and has been playing the festival circuit since and would appear to almost certain to be Iran's candidate. It's a compelling drama about a coroner involved in a minor road acciden...

Re: Unseen Foreign Film nominees

Finally caught up with Spain's first foreign film Oscar winner - "Volver a empezar". Johann Pachelbel's "Canon in D Major" & Cole Porter's "Begin the Beguine" are both to this film what "Lara's Theme" is to Dr Zhivago. Was it the music that won over Acade...

Re: Coming DVDs

Probably THE release of the year. Will be interesting to see if Criterion release a similar boxset in the UK. The Touch & The Magic Flute are already out via BFI, Artificial Eye released a small box set five earlier films in 2012 all of which expect for It Rains on Our Love, are included in the ...
