Re: Honorary Oscars

Probably the problem with this board it’s that is not diverse enough. Awardsworthy might be filled with kids but at least the level of representation of several cultural backgrounds and from different parts of the world is high enough that there is no issues about inclusivity and sharing different o...

Re: Honorary Oscars

I personally found your comments on Boseman in bad taste simply because I disagreed with the way you were expressing them, not that you were allowed to dislike the performance. I dislike most of what Will Smith does, but I also wouldn't have expressed it in the way you did, with a level of vehement...

Re: Honorary Oscars

Look, I realize that being called out for racism can be a jarring thing. It’s not a matter of some people being racist and others not. All of us—certainly including me—have internalized racism. It’s impossible for us not to in a world long marked by white dominance and colonialism. It impacts our p...

Re: Honorary Oscars

I’ve read Reza’s posts long enough to know that he certainly expresses racist views. Your recent relentless attacks on Chadwick Bozeman make me suspicious of you as well, Mirg, and your quick defense of Reza rather confirms it. I’ve made a commitment to be actively anti-racist and will call it when...

Re: Honorary Oscars

Reza, I mostly try to ignore what you write but the pride you seem to take in your own blatant racism is revolting. It’s toxic and has driven people like BJ away from this board. Please just stop. For me what's revolting is the level of agression of calling someone a racist and label his (or hers) ...

Re: My first Oscar predictions!

You could also make the case that Boseman's resume is longer and that he has been in the hunt for an Oscar nomination several times before now. Really? His full movie filmography is the following: 2008 The Express: The Ernie Davis Story 2012 The Kill Hole 2013 42 2014 Draft Day Get on Up 2016 Gods ...

Re: Coattail Oscar Wins

Had Anna Paquin not win I think the winner would be Winona Ryder and not Rosie Perez.

Also Judi Dench was more a make up win than a coattail.

Tim Robbins would have won regardless of Sean Penn.

Re: Overall Globes Takes

Saw Minari yesterday. It’s a nice little film. It’s well liked but it does not have the same track record of Parasite critics wise nor the same word of mouth.

This! Thank you! And also because of BLM.

Re: The Golden Globes Predictions Contest

Wow…. first time in 20 years on this boardn that I win a prediction contest… It almost makes me think that it could be considered like a lifetime achievement award, but because no one voted for me and it was a prediction contest, and in Allison Janey's words, "I did it all by myself…" :D S...

Absolutely. But I'm also entitled to put it out there that we should remember to have a little respect if I don't think it's being shown.

Absolutely
