…that if scottferguson were still here, many of Thursday’s surprises wouldn’t have been as surprising?
The dude would always warn of tide changes, buzz shifts, and academy reactions. Even if he did it in often-times pretentious and poorly-worded ways, he would still do it and would usually help foresee snubs and longshot inclusions.
Interesting that you bring this up. I’ve actually kept consistent contact with scottferguson since his wrongful banishment from this site (though he stopped replying to my emails in mid-December, I hope he’s ok) and he did mention to me that American Sniper and especially Cooper’s performance were going over incredibly well with the Academy. I didn’t heed the warning, though clearly I should have.
I wish he’d rise again some how. I know he started his own movie discussion forum but hasn’t touched it in a long time.
We’ve been in touch as well. He has always asked my advice on his and other people’s animal companions. He is very kind this way.
I’m sure he’s fine. I havent heard from him in a while.
I had Bradley Cooper in my predix. I figured that out all by myself. LOL!
