    Hey guys a week ago we did our first forum poster slugfest with Bradderz and KyleBaily! We dished Trumbo and Lawrence as well as the Globe and SAG nods.

    Check it out here and weigh in on the topics. Which of our opinions were insane?
    http://www.goldderby.com/news/11239/outlander-caitriona-balfe-jennifer-lawrence-entertainment-13957806-story.html

    I’m hoping to run these once every fortnight at least, so please PM me if you are wanting to be involved, or if you have any suggestions that would make these better.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    For your consideration, Anthony Hopkins won a leading oscar for a not so “long” performance…in other words, it is not just a matter of minutes we get to see the actor playing. It s also about the general impact he has on the story and the movie in general. Cate Blanchett is the leading actress ? Yes! Roonay Mara is supporting Cate ? YES! Are the co-leads? Yes! Why not? Who cares ? They can place her where they want but cut it out…it s not just a matter of minutes of screen time.

    I’ve always pictured Bradderz as a woman in my head. My apologies! Thanks for the slugfest.

    I would pay to see that.
    You seem like such an interesting and unmatched person.

    Try hovering over his name. A drop-down menu should appear. Then, you can send him a pm.

    I’d actually love to see two contrarians going at it…..

    [/quote]I’m actually not contrarian. Heck 6 of my all-time favorite movies are The Empire Strikes Back, Titanic, The Bridge over the River Kwai, Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, There Will Be Blood, and Mean Girls.

    I just don’t blindly follow the herd and come to my own opinions according to my own individual analysis and tastes, not because the critical and/or popular majority, whatever it may be, tells me I’m SUPPOSED TO like or dislike it for whatever their own reasons are. 

    But thanks for the helpful information! However, I just tried doing what you told me, and it took me to my profile page, where it strangely said: Invalid User  What should I do now that that didn’t work, me clicking on Send Message?[/quote]

    I would be open to do another one if needed! I just need a few days notice since my internet at home is not great and will need to go to my grandparents’ home with their lovely fast internet 🙂

    I watched the first one a few days ago.  There was a comparison made about Tom Hanks in Saving Mr. Banks and Bryan Cranston in Trumbo.  In terms of the roles, yes, I get it.  But in terms of awards, there is no comparison.  Hanks’s momentum came solely from Oscar bloggers.  He got no precursors, so was never actually in it.  Cranston has been nominated everywhere.
