Re: Best Cinematography 1955

Black-and-White Most conspicuous by their absence were Kiss Me Deadly (Ernest Laszlo) , Rebel Without a Cause (Ernest Haller), One Summer of Happiness (Goran Strindberg) and The Wages of Fear (Armond Thirard), which should have won.

Black-and-White Most conspicuous by their absence were Stanley Cortez ( The Night of the Hunter), Kiss Me Deadly (Ernest Laszlo) , One Summer of Happiness (Goran Strindberg) and The Wages of Fear (Armond Thirard), which should have won. None of the actual nominees came close to the forgotten four, b...

Re: Campaign 2020

It's early, but if we somehow manage to get rid of Trump, Mayor Pete would be the ideal candidate to go up against his nemesis, Pence.

Re: Best Supporting Actress 2018

Not a strong category. Marina de Tavira's nomination was a surprise to even Roma's strongest supporters. Amy Adams' nomination for one of her least noteworthy performances is a real headscratcher. Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz pretty much cancel one another out and Regina King wins by default. I'm vot...

Four down, four to go. Here's the first of the second half of our polling for eight categories of 2018 Oscar winners.

Re: Best Supporting Actor 2018

This one is even more interesting: https://letterboxd.com/cinematthew/list/longest-oscar-nominated-supporting-performances/detail/ Who else knew that Tatum O'Neal's Oscar winning performance was only the 11th longest nominated supporting performance of all time, or that Mahershala Ali's second win w...

Re: Best Supporting Actor 2018

Thanks, Miguel.

I found this observation especially interesting:

Who else knew Robert Strauss had 19 minutes and 2 seconds more screen time than William Holden in Stalag 17?

Best Supporting Actor 2018

This one's a tie for me between the two guys named Sam - not for the win, but for which one needs to go first. Sam Rockwell was passed over for awards recognition so many times that this nomination for the previous year's winner seems solely given to make up for all those missed opportunities. The b...

Re: Best Cinematography 1956

Black-and-White This is the year that Diabolique , La Strada , Seven Samurai , Invasion of the Body Snatchers , The Ladykillers , The Killing , Umberto D. and The Prisoner were all eligible, yet none of them were nominated even though any one of them would have been a better choice than any of the a...

Re: Campaign 2020

Yesterday, I watched 88-year-old Clint Eastwood play the real-life 90-year-old drug runner in The Mule and within minutes of watching it, I viewed the entire two-minute "I get it" video that 76-year-old Joe Biden posted addressing the issue of the uncomfortable "women and some men.&qu...

Re: Campaign 2020

Mister Tee wrote We have a minimum age qualification for president, why shouldn't we have a maximum age qualification? I think it should be no more than 62 at time of election, which would mean retirement after a two-year term at 70. So, you're telling me that in retrospect, Hillary Clinton should ...

Re: Best Original Screenplay 2018

I agree pretty much with what Precious said. Although they both had disappointing endings, I agree that The Favourite was the best-written original screenplay with First Reformed a solid second. As much as I liked Green Book as a whole, I didn't think its writing was as strong as its direction or it...
