Re: Academy Members' Brutally Honest Ballots

Here's another one.

It's a publicist this time. This person seems to be a bit more in line with my taste, I think, more so than all the others so far at least.

Re: Academy Members' Brutally Honest Ballots

Another one.

This one isn't as infuriating as the others. They didn't say who this person was but I suspect it's an editor since he (or she) said a lot about it.

Re: Categories One-by-One: Best Actor

Chalamet’s youth – his corresponding “he’s got decades ahead to win” narrative – obviously works against him, the same way it did with Dustin Hoffman vs. John Wayne I'd like to point out that in Lead Actress, this is not much of a factor. Jennifer Lawrence was Timothee Chalamet's age when she won h...

Re: Oscar-winning performances directed by women or POC

I hate to interrupt the discussion but do we have a definitive answer on whether or not Carol Kane in Hester Street is, in fact, the first performance not directed by a white male to be nominated for an Oscar? I just want to know. Thanks.

Hmmm. If we're extending it to nominees, here are some additional names not yet mentioned from the same time period: Tom Hanks, Big (Penny Marshall) Emma Thompson, Sense and Sensibility (Ang Lee) Kate Winslet, Sense and Sensibility (Ang Lee) Barbara Hershey, The Portrait of a Lady (Jane Campion) Cat...

Oscar-winning performances directed by women or POC

It has been noted at this year's Oscars that Mary J. Blige is actually the very first actress to be directed to an Oscar nominations by a woman of color which was a bit surprising to me so I thought, how many performers were directed to Oscar wins by either women or POC? Here's a (probably) incomple...

We get these every year. I thought we'd discuss them in one thread. Here are the first two I found:

A female costume designer's Oscar ballot for IndieWire.

Another anonymous Oscar voter for TheDailyBeast.
