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

I don't disagree, but who in their right mind would want to take their place? What will it take to get rid of Dawn Hudson, who has been CEO of the Academy since 2011? Many of these crazy ideas link back to her. Other board members come and go, but she stays put. Why? Never heard of Dawn Hudson. Loo...

Re: Ladies and gentlemen – The Leadometer!

What Ladies? Anyway… 8. The One Scene Wonder. (Maybe two, max). Or as it’s also known as, The Beatrice Straight. Another one that comes to mind is Geraldine Page in The Pope of Greenwich Village. Can't recall if she had more than one scene but the scene I remember is pretty much the only moment I r...

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

Bohemian Rhapsody is not a comedy or a musical. It’s a dramatic biopic that features (pre-recorded) music from Queen. I agree with MaxWilder that it was correctly classified in the drama category for the Golden Globes. And Rami Malek absolutely deserves an Oscar nomination for it. I think him placi...

There is a comment on page 29 that anyone can update Wikipedia which is exactly why I take these with a grain of salt but at the same time one could imagine these being the NY runner ups.

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

Third, and most importantly, the Academy doesn't need to background check someone. I know plenty of people who had castigated Hart in the past for his homophobic material. There was a large enough group of people that knew of his history that any customary and semi-diligent investigation could have...

Re: New York Film Critics Circle Awards

Some on Golddery is claiming that the runner-ups were published on Wikipedia and have since been deleted. I'll take it with a grain of salt but the supposed runner ups were: Actor: Brady Jandreau, The Rider Actress: Lady GaGa, A Star is Born (which does explain Regina King's win with all the critics...

He really needs to go or be pushed out. One twitter listed a number of women of colour who can take over the host role - they all sound good to me.

Hart should never have been selected to host by the Academy, given his baggage. Now that he has been he should be replaced ASAP.
