Re: 91st Oscars: Actor

I'm just going to pretend that this was for The Pacific and mr. robot. Good actor, gracious speech, and the kind of actor who I thought would never come within a million miles of an Oscar. What a disappointment that it's for this.

One of the worst winners in Oscar history, period.

Re: Categories One-by-One: Actress

Just in general. Nathaniel Rogers has been one of the more egregious Close partisans, and in particular was all over Twitter yesterday trying to ascribe bad motives to anyone who doesn't love The Wife and Close in it. It's one reason why I almost hope that Colman doesn't win, even though she's my fa...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Actress

Ah, but Glenn Close. She's not Lauren Bacall in a Barbra Streisand film. She's not Sylvester Stallone who can't play anything other than Rocky. She's not Richard Burton going through the motions in Equus . She's not Fred Astaire playing Fred Astaire without singing and dancing in The Towering Infer...

Thanks for the tip-off. I don't have cable, but I just checked Amazon, and it's available for rent there too.

The nominees: Detainment Fauve Madre Marguerite Skin We actually got the shorts program in Huntsville, so I decided to check it out, in hopes of encouraging the theater to bring this program back next year. My God, what a miserable group of nominees. Essentially you've got a film about a child in pe...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Cinematography

Wish I could comment on this with an opinion, but Never Look Away doesn't become accessible to me until next Friday (and even then, it's a drive to Nashville). I know people are giving Sony Classics credit for the way they've handled Close and The Wife this year, but too often they do crap like this...

Re: Categories One-By-One: Costume Design

As expected, The Favourite and Black Panther won their respective categories at the Costume Designers Guild Awards. (Crazy Rich Asians won the award for Contemporary Film.)

If you use a VPN service, you should be able to find a way to watch live. Some of the best ones, like ExpressVPN, charge a fee, but you get your money back if you cancel within a certain period of time and ask for a refund.

Re: Unseen 2018 Oscar Nominated Films

If you don't do Hulu, this week you can catch Minding the Gap on PBS. It's airing as part of their POV series. It airs on Wednesday in my area, but that'll vary based on your PBS affiliate. It's by far the best of the three nominated documentaries that I've seen, and right up there with First Man as...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

Custody Seems, at first, like a two-sides-to-everything divorce drama about two divorcing parents who use their kid to get back at each other. But it ultimately takes a turn in a different direction. It's not exactly an unexpected turn--the groundwork was laid, even in the first scene--but there's ...

Re: WGA Nominations

Someone on Twitter pointed out that every major guild (DGA, PGA, SAG, WGA) has gone to a different movie for the first time ever.

And if you throw in the Cinematographers and Editors guilds, you still have no repeat winners.

dws1982 wrote It might be worth noticing if The Favourite or Black Panther don't win their respective categories, but then again, you can't read too much into that either: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them lost to a movie that wasn't even nominated for the Oscar. True, but do you really think...
