Didn’t see a topic for it within the last 6 hours (when it was published), so forgive me if it’s already been posted.February 27, 2018 at 11:49 pm #1202502489
I secretly liked that film, even though I hate circuses
Ha! Excellent voter. He saw absolutely everything. Considering Icarus, Revolting Rhymes and the I, Tonya editing more strongly now. If we see a consensus over more ballots, I will probably switch.
Would love for Blade Runner 2049 to win production design, but I am not going to consider it. What is really interesting though is his vote for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 for visual effects. That category has been ripe for an upset all season, with Planet of the Apes always losing and Blade Runner 2049 flopping. Guardians of the Galaxy has widespread goodwill and it is not going up against two other Marvel titles this time or even one.February 27, 2018 at 11:56 pm #1202502492
I thought the same thing on reading his choices – he watched every single nominee. Love it. Although his overall enjoyment of the movie affected his views on specific categories.
Was so happy he picked Sally Hawkins for Best Actress!February 28, 2018 at 12:25 am #1202502497This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.February 28, 2018 at 12:34 am #1202502502This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.February 28, 2018 at 12:57 am #1202502510
Just read a bunch of others on IndieWire and the Toronto Star, but none are comprehensive like The Hollywood Reporter‘s. I care about who is winning the short categories, damn it! They even mostly omitted visual effects. Did not find consensus for I, Tonya. I really need to watch Icarus. Faces Places is not BAFTA-eligible until next year. I am concerned about Agnès Varda being an online bubble thing. Faces Places has also been doing pretty poorly, outside of the regional critics’ groups, which do not really matter. It lost IDA, Cinema Eye, and Critics’ Choice (and NBR) and was not even nominated by a single guild (or the Satellites). If it loses the Indie Spirit too, well, it will have just about nothing going for it.February 28, 2018 at 4:11 am #1202502571
I was with this voter until they went with Molly’s Game and The Shape of Water for screenplay.February 28, 2018 at 4:29 am #1202502577
For everything this voter gets right (yes, “3B” is a foreigner’s version of small-town America not remotely ringing true to life), he also says something shitty (no, you don’t get “Call Me by Your Name” at all). So is life. At least he watched damn near everything this cycle. Whether he’s always this thorough or just had too much time on his hands, it’s the level of voter involvement that all of the Academy should strive for.February 28, 2018 at 4:34 am #1202502584
Ugh. I pretty much disagreed with everything. I think the writing is starting to show on the wall for TSOW. It’s clearly the masses’ favorite. Also, he’s clearly a straight guy. Only a straight guy would bring up homosexuality as often as he did.February 28, 2018 at 4:39 am #1202502588
What a massive piece of shit this voter is.February 28, 2018 at 4:48 am #1202502602
Interesting voter. So he didn’t care for “Call Me By Your Name” because of the age difference between Oliver and Elio, but he had no problem voting for Oldman who was accused of hitting his wife with a phone. NOt sure what one has in common with the other, but it made me scratch my head.
He voted for “The Shape of Water” for original screenplay because it was so imaginative, although he mentioned that it wasn’t that original – more than one person can have the same “imaginative” idea. Ok..
Interesting read as I found his reasoning for voting or not voting for certain nominees, well… interesting.February 28, 2018 at 5:00 am #1202502614
Hopefully the recent diversification of the Academy skews the shit out of votes like these.February 28, 2018 at 5:02 am #1202502616This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.
