Re: Categories One-by-One: Actress

Well at least this category has two performances worth voting for (Colman & McCarthy), which is more than I can say about the best actor lineup. As Closes's film is so pedestrian and her performance nowhere near worthy of a nomination it seemed iffy until the televised award shows started dispel...

Here's another 'brutally honest' ballot that is an amusing read:

R.I.P. Claude Goretta

Swiss director whose 1973 film L'Invitation was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film. He also launched Isabelle Huppert's career with The Lacemaker (1977). Funnily enough I watched one of his films, The Wonderful Crook (1974) with Gerard Depardieu about 2 weeks ago after spending years of trying...

Re: June Lockhart played Lassie?

For those who don't know, Lassie was a dog. She played her owner, Ruth Martin, not the dog and not in Lost in Space . Her character's name in Lost in Space was Maureen Robinson. Who proofs this stuff? Nobody I'd say. Just like newspaper and magazines. The number of errors I see in the news media is...

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

Fortunately a cable tv channel bought the rights to broadcast in Portugal. Thats good to hear. Given the Oscars are the most sought after award with fans worldwide its not fair people cannot watch the show who wish to. I'm not planning on watching the Oscars this year. I have to take my mother to a...

Re: 2018 Oscar Shouldabeens

Based on the first commercial release date anywhere in the world. Subject to change as I still have not seen Never Look Away, The House Jack Jack Built, Sunset, Blindspotting, Destroyer, Vox Lux, Stan & Ollie and about two dozen French films that I should see by the beginning of April. It didn't...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Adapted Screenplay

A great read (as usual) Mister Tee. Its hard to imagine BlacKkKlansman not taking this award but with ASiB underperforming awards wise and the other films underperforming with the public and in relation to their respective nominations Lee's film does feel pretty locked in for the win. Having said th...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

I watched The Front Runner. Worst sound mixing of the year. Apparently Jason Reitman interprets 'Altman-esque' as 'make your dialogue near-impossible to understand.' I noticed that at the beginning of the film and thought of Robert Altman straight away :roll: . Did it continue all the way to the en...

Re: Oscar Predictions Contest

Best Sup. Actor: Mahershala Ali Point breakers: 2. Green Book Ali wins supporting actor, but Green Book goes home empty-handed? Maybe Precious is secretly hoping for a win by Richard E. Grant. That along with a few other surprises would be most pleasant. Good catch Magilla but I have to admit I did...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Supporting Actress

I don't think Emma Stone or Rachel Weisz will win both having been recent winners. Doubt the category fraud issue matters or they wouldn't have been placed here in the first place. Must say I've reached the point were I am sick of the level of fraud and that in both of the supporting categories we o...

Re: Categories One by One: Best Actor

Dafoe’s nomination came by the skin of his teeth, right? The film had one of those Brigadoon-like releases and with how quickly it disappeared alongside Ethan Hawke’s overperformance with the critics groups convinced me that he was a no-hoper for a nomination, let alone a win. I’m curious how good ...

Re: R.I.P. Bruno Ganz

A fine actor, who's probably been more widely seen in those fake-subtitled clips from Downfall than in any of his other excellent work. That is so true and its so sad to observe the following in the Australian press anyway: 1) Bruno Ganz's passing is getting way more press than Albert Finney got be...
