Check out Sasha Stone and my Oscar podcast chat HERE:
Are we bonkers? Or do you agree? Be brutal — we can take it!
I’m seeing “Joy” this Sunday. Can’t wait! From what I’m hearing from numerous sources (including Eddie Redmayne — he’s seen it), Lawrence is fantabulous. But Sasha has a fascinating observation here in our podcast. When actresses win Oscar #2, it’s usually a Best Picture like “Million $ Baby.” I’m predicting “Joy” for Best Pic now, but with no confidence — it’s just a place-holder till I’ve seen everything else. I don’t see “Hateful 8” till late next week, but, from what I hear from gads of people who’ve seen it, it can’t win BP. So, basically, I’ll have seen everything soon and will finally have some clarity on this derby … or at least I hope so.
I wonder if Joy really is an updated Mildred Pierce, Tom? If so, not a bad comparison to make at all. Larson vs Lawrence face-off on the horizon?
Tom, have you seen Creed?
Thanks to the podcast, I have removed Inside Out from my predictions.
Leo Leo Leo….
So….shall we give Lubezki the Oscar right freaking now? Could save a lot of time and money for those other, “filler” nominees…
OK. I like the woman sitting next to her saying, “O, the poor bear”.
Said that already.
