Re: Visual Effects Society Nominations

Remember we live in a world where Suicide Squad won an Oscar. Why did that happen? Well, I think it came down to which movie did the most voters see. Another view might be that Suicide Squad, while a godawful movie, did have more impressive and more original make-up than the other nominees. The per...

Re: Visual Effects Society Nominations

Big story is no Black Panther. It's worth noting that Arrival got no love either and didn't make it. I think it's getting snubbed. So, if Black Panther doesn't make the Oscar cut, what wins this category? I've been saying all year that Ready Player One had the effects that impressed me most, but I ...

Re: USC Scripter Awards

I do wonder if maybe the tide is turning in another direction. What a weird Oscar season. I don't at all dispute your take, but what direction would that be? Beale Street -- a film that's been battered by the Guilds? Can You Ever Forgive Me?, a financial dud? The others seem fringe candidates for w...

That one, I agree, is a "has to make you ponder the existence of god" convergence.

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

Cool thing someone at AwardsWatch came up with: It's now 50 years since the last (and only legit) acting Oscar tie. The winners that night were of course Katharine Hepburn for The Lion in Winter and Barbra Streisand. Glenn Close subsequently played that Lion in Winter role in a TV movie. Tonight, s...

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

Apparently, the Broadcasters aren't as sold on Close as Magilla and Reza are. Giving, in addition, Colman Comedy Actress means they can claim to have predicted the Oscar winner no matter who wins. Bale was the big shocker. Based on the first two legs of the TV track, supposed front-runner Bradley Co...

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

A brief thought about this group's awards/predictions, which will be announced tonight: As you know, I couldn't hold this group in any lower esteem, but tonight will demonstrate just how deep their level of whore-dom goes. Their voting all took place this week, post-Globes. My deep suspicion last ye...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Yeah, I believe we're approaching DEFCON 1. And the final result is going to be a lot closer to what the so-called alarmists were predicting than what the "realists" have been maintaining. Fasten your seat belts.

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

Let me just add - since it was mentioned I think in this thread - that the Edith Piaf biopic with Marion Cotillard was a bit more layered honestly. Hmm...not sure about that; it may just be a decade's distance helping diminish the earlier film's flaws. But then again, most of us went into La Vie en...

Re: Green Book reviews

Oy; I hate to have to take part in this discussion. This movie has now officially joined Parker's Birth of a Nation as a movie you can't talk about without giving at least cursory attention to extraneous elements. 1) The film itself. I never commented on the film here, though I have thrown in though...

Re: Golden Globe reactions

Still, what I feel is that - on this board especially - there is rather a sort-of (inexplicable) resistance to the idea of such a great actress finally getting an Oscar I was in that group. I discounted her chances because her performance is in a movie that is pretty much irrelevant. I'm sure it's ...

Thomasin McKenzie, but have enough people seen that film?

Maybe those that have think the idea of her as supporting is laughable.

Re: 2018 BAFTA's

I had Blunt pegged until I actually saw Mary Poppins Returns and poor Emily Blunt gets lost in the ensemble. There are long stretches of the movie where she's either not in the scene or off to the side, not talking. It's insane and baffling, to put it mildly. I watched the original Mary Poppins a y...

Re: The VCR / DVR / Streaming Alert Thread

A little assistance for that devilishly obscure 1945 original screenplay category: one of the five, Music for Millions, will be showing on TCM, next Tuesday (January 15th) at 3:30pm ET.
