Re: Second/Third Tier Critics Winners

Is this a new thing, critics groups announcing nominations? Fairly new, but not unprecedented. I only post the ones that come up with something out of the ordinary. In the case of Vancouver, it's the inclusion of Peter Bogdanovich in Welles' film. With New Mexico it was the Glenn Strange Award and ...

More than a bit it seems if the details in her mini-bio on IMDb. are accurate.

Re: Screen Actors Guild Awards

Yes, Bradley Cooper will probably win the SAG (as well as the Globe) unless there's a real populist, "let's play with their heads", surge for Rami Malek which could happen with the AFTRA influence. I wouldn't count out Ethan Hawke from winning the Oscar if he's nominated, but let's stick w...

Re: Second/Third Tier Critics Winners

New Mexico Film Critics Association: Glenn Strange Honorary Award – Tim Curry, Kirk Douglas, Angela Lansbury, Christopher Lloyd, and Dick Van Dyke What is up with this? I think it's a great idea. So many great stars and character actors go unrewarded during their lifetime. Each year give it to a bu...

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

The same year as Driving Miss Daisy , the Globes gave Best Actress - Drama to Michelle Pfeiffer for The Fabulous Baker Boys , a dramatic film centered around a night club act in which Pfeiffer's best moments are singing, most memorably "Making Whoopee" while slinked across the piano. Pfeif...

Re: Screen Actors Guild Awards

The SAG nominations, as we know, depend on who the randomly selected nominators are. Now that it's the combined SAG-AFTRA membership that is involved, it's not that surprising to see two films containing lots of music among the cast picks, although one would think that Mary Poppins Returns would be ...

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

The problem with the Oscars is that it's trying to chase an audience they will never have: People who don't give a shit about them. I think the Oscars should instead EMBRACE the audience they already have: film buffs, pop culture junkies, awards nerds, LGBT people, the elderly, etc. People who alre...

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

After the actual Oscar ceremony is over the Board of Governors should resign (does anyone have the authority to sack them?). 2018 has been one disaster after another and they are to blame: Announcing a 'popular film' category - clearly this was a 'thought bubble' and no announcement should have bee...

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

Tee, this isn't the first year they've had the 7-nominee slates. True, but this year I think they've refined their selections to a point that anything or anyone not mentioned is going to have a hard time pulling off an Oscar nod. This really feels as if it is a list of preliminary nominations from ...
