RobertPius replied to the topic Who Do You Think Is The Most Vulnerable Acting Oscar Frontrunner? in the forum Movies 10 minutes ago
I’m wondering if the Academy will rebel and not want to just follow these three ceremonies identical winners. Now is the time that backlashes start and the Oscars are farther off then they have been in the past. I think Oldman is a lock due to lack of other choices but I could see a groundswell of backlash forming against all the other acting…[Read more]
I thought Skarsgaard was really cool talking about his embarrassment over beating DeNiro. That was classy.
I do hope we get some surprise at the Oscars. If Globe, Critics Choice and SAG are all the same four as the Oscars…….well it well be the most boring race ever.
And what was up with Frances McDormand saying how they need to start…[Read more]
We can’t see our predictions anymore. I switched back and forth between Dafoe and Rockwell so much that I lost track of where I last left it!
I switched from Sean Hayes to Aziz Ansari at the last minute today. That is the only one I had different from the Gold Derby front runners. I figured Ansari won the Globe and some Emmys and this recent…[Read more]

Oh yes I’ve read that about Foster too. She had trouble with the trial testimony scenes and actually thought she blew it and applied to a PhD program at Cornell to become an English Lit professor.
I never knew until recently but she actually had to go to Washington and give a deposition about John Hinckley with him in the room. He freaked out…[Read more]

Winger fought with everyone on Terms. (James L. Brooks, Jeff Daniels and of course MacLaine) in one of MacLaine’s books she describes it all. She says the only way she could play Winger’s death scene was to feel the relief that she doesn’t have to work with her anymore. Even in her Oscar speech she gives Winger a back handed compliment with the…[Read more]

Actors always say the end product doesn’t always match up with the experience as a whole. Meaning the film could turn out awful but they still loved the experienced of making it and/or the people they worked with.
It would be odd to win awards or be nominated for something you had a bad time doing.
The only example I can think of is Debra…[Read more]

The ballots go out around Dec.21st. I wonder if most vote early or wait until the deadline.
If a lot vote right away they would not be influenced at all by Golden Globes or Critics Choice.
RobertPius replied to the topic Allison Janney in I, Tonya: It's been done before. in the forum Movies 2 days, 4 hours ago
I guess it doesn’t matter. I mean classic roles in plays are played over and over again. Someone can bring new stuff to a part of course. This one just surprised me because some of the reviews made her sound like such a revelation but watching the other two women play it she wasn’t that different (and the others even had the bird too!)
Yes! Joan Cusack is brilliant in Adams Family Values. The scene at the end where she confesses to killing her parents because they bought her the wrong Barbie Doll (“THEY HAD TO GO!!!!!”) is just brilliant comic acting.
In Short Cuts Jennifer Jason Leigh, Stowe, and Andie MacDowell all either won or were runnersup for critic awards.
Whose your favorite?
I just rewatched The Age of Innocence on TCM the other day. It gave me new respect for Winona Ryder’s work. It seemed sort of one note to me when I first saw it but seeing it again made me realize how complex the role was since despite her constant sweetness and cheerfulness she really inside has full knowledge of everything…[Read more]
I really doubt Streep would do it. She seemed to remain close to Fisher. (She mentioned it in her Globe speech last year that she had lost her voice in “lamentation”. Fisher’s funeral was a few days before. I guess she spoke at it.)
I think she’d see it as disrespectful to Fisher’s memory.

BAFTA has some strange grudge against Denzel. Don’t know why but they do really seem to go out of their way to exclude him.

Good point. (Although it now almost seems mandatory. Play Churchill get an award.)

Who played Patty Duke’s part before?

There is a cheesy TV movie where Susan Clark plays the role and a comedy special where with Julie Brown where Stella Stevens played the part.
I found them online and on on a VHS tape someone had.
Sort of changed my opinion of Janney’s uniqueness in the part.
There were other times when this happened. Marion Cotillard never really matched Jane…[Read more]

Next year for Glenn Close and “The Wife”.
It may happen.
It was Rob Reiner who said on the red carpet that he had as much chance of winning as Marisa Tomei.
Roger Ebert was a big champion of Tomei. I’m not sure if he predicted her to win but I think he wrote that she deserved to. (Siskel and Ebert had a lot of sway in their day. I remember them pretty much single handedly getting James Cromwell his…[Read more]

If Michelle Williams gets a nomination I think a good campaign could get her an Oscar THIS year. Fifth nomination, all the good press she has received over doing the reshoots for no money when her agent got Wahlberg a million bucks plus nobody else in the race really has a great narrative……If she makes the nomination cut I think someone needs…[Read more]
