3. Too much attention paid to Oprah’s presence
4. Remembering scum bucket Roger Ailes and ignoring Happy Days child star Erin Moran
5. David E Kelley’s loss

I don’t watch enough to grow weary and the ones I am “weary” of I already can’t stand them and avoid.

I remember when I first discovered the Oscars. I was allowed to stay up and see if my favorite movie won Best Picture. Movies in my childhood home were not encouraged. They were often sinful which, of course, only made them more intriguing. That night was revolutionary for me. My movie won. And this woman named Barbra Streisand won Best Actress. I felt so sorry for her. She wore these really pretty clothes but didn’t notice that people could see her butt through the back of her pants. I felt so bad for her. People were going to be so mean, and it was such a special night.
I was hooked. I took a few of my carefully squirreled away dollars from my “I am getting out of this place the day I turn 18” fund and bought a paperback book on the history of the Oscars. Some kids memorize sports statistics. I began immediately to learn every category and its nominees, every nominee and corresponding nominations. I then vowed to watch every nominated film. The media of today wasn’t even imagined. I had an alarm clock. I would wake in the middle of the night to curl up close in front of the television to discover a new treasure on the late show.
I was shocked to discover that everyone didn’t share my new found enthusiasm for film. Or awards. No one else was outraged that this magnificent performance by Judy Garland in A Star is Born was robbed to honor a pretty blonde woman. In fact, my passion was ridiculed. I quickly learned to hide my obsession. I stopped sharing my surprising insights from Oscar history. I no longer commented on my most recent 2 a.m. piece of celluloid magic. No one wants to be odd. I kept secretly studying my Oscar history and checking off the movies.
A decade or so ago I found this online community that discussed awards. It took me a year to move beyond lurker to member. I had trouble believing there were real people behind these cyber space voices who shared my interests. Lucky me!

I love Sense8 and (some of) the Marvel Netflix properties, neither on track to get much of anything though.

Bojack Horseman. It should be getting nominated for Music Supervision, Picture Editing, Music Composition, Voice Over (Character) Performance for Will Arnett, Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie, and I would even argue Paul F. Tompkins, as well as obviously Writing For a Comedy Series and Animated Program. It should even be receiving wins for Individual Achievement in Animation. Lisa Hanawalt would be a truly amazing winner for her consistently detailed and mesmerizing Production Design for Bojack.

Fleabag. Comedy Series, Comedy Actress, Comedy Writing & Editing would do it justice.
Will Claire Foy be Oscar, BAFTA, SAG or GG nominated for The Girl in the Spider’s Web?September 19, 2017 at 11:15 pm #1202218953
While I absolutely love Foy, I don’t think she’ll receive the acclaim Rooney Mara did. Maybe SAG, other than that, I don’t think she’ll be nominated in general. But we’ll see!
What are your thoughts on Lindsay Lohan?September 19, 2017 at 11:24 pm #1202218957
I just don’t pay much attention to her anymore. I think her dad helped screw her up though, Michael Lohan never gets the shit he deserves. She will always have a special place in my heart because of Mean Girls, no matter how badly she f**ks herself up. Unless she commits murder like O.J. or Phil Spector. Then we’re gonna have some serious problems.
Worst Hitchcock movie ever and why?September 20, 2017 at 1:42 am #1202219042
Well, its incredibly difficult to track down a “bad” Hitchcock film. I believe that most if not all of his movies have at least a 50 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. However, if I had to choose. I would go with Hitchcock’s silent romance drama Easy Virtue. It’s your typical 1920s-30s romantic melodrama with a lot of misogynistic ideas about romance and so on, and its a tough watch (in the bad way). It’s good that, even though its not terribly panned, it is largely ignored from Hitchcock’s work.
SQ but for David Fincher and Martin Scorsese.September 20, 2017 at 2:15 am #1202219053
I think Fincher’s worst is The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. I usually love how moody and dark his style is, but he really got stuck up his own artistic ass with such an unnecessary and boring remake. The last 15 minutes weirdly felt like they belonged to a different movie entirely. Tatiana Maslany could have done believable work as Lisbeth, but I just never bought Rooney Mara for a second in her role, and I still think she only got her Oscar nod because of what a weak field it was that year. I also think it only won Editing for the 2nd year in a row for Angus Wall and Kirk Baxter is the same reason Inarritu won Directing for the 2nd year in a row for The Revenant: Sometimes the Oscars just love to give repeats for the sake of awarding their faves just like the Emmys. Sometimes like the Emmys, a worthy first Oscar win can lead to a mediocre and undeserving repeat win the very next year.
I haven’t seen Scorsese’s New York, New York, even though I hear that was his worst. Silence looked interesting but I never got around to seeing it. I’ll go with Casino. At least Gangs of New York had 2 truly great performances by Leonardo DiCaprio and especially Daniel Day-Lewis to help me overlook the movie’s serviceable script. All Casino ended up being was a less layered and far less memorable version of Goodfellas.
