    I didn’t like this year’s SAG ensemble line-up. I think Lady Bird might have been the most exciting nominee, I liked them all from Saoirse to Beanie Feldstein. I didn’t like 3 Billboards win, although it deserves it, it doesn’t feel much of an ensemble piece of work. I mean, it’s Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell’s film (and Woody Harrelson), the rest are minor roles and simple material. Nothing changes about Lady Bird either, I just don’t know how to describe it. My winner would be The Shape of Water which was criminally snubbed. Hawkins, Jenkins, Spencer, Shannon and Stuhlbarg were all oustanding. The Big Sick and Get Out noms were laughable.

    Tessa Thompson is a terrible actress.

    Just out of curiosity, how much have you seen her in? Have you seen all of Westworld, Creed, Annihilation and Dear White People?

    She was okay in Creed but I thought she was awful in Annihilation and Thor. I just don’t get the hype ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    The Goodbye Girl is one of the greuatest films ever, and Richard Dreyfess gave one of the top 10 Best Oscar winning performances ever.

    Meryl Streep in Julie & Julia is actually Razzie-worthy.

    Robert Shaw in Jaws is one of the best, if not the best performance of all time.

    On top of that, he was one of the best actors of the 20th Century.

    OH MY GOSH YES YES A MILLION TIMES YEESSS!!! He should have won Supporting Actor for Jaws (still less of a category fraud then George Burns was for The Sunshine Boys that same year) and been nominated in that same category for The Battle of the Bulge and The Sting. He was also excellent in From Russia With Love. Ironically, his only Oscar nomination was for A Man For All Seasons, which I consider an obvious coattail nod on the heels of the amazing Paul Scofield. I think that Shaw’s work in Seasons is some of the weakest of his career, he’s just very hammy and yells a lot. I guess that’s what the real-life Henry the 8th did, but I still would have appreciated more layers to his character and performance. He was one of the weak links of the films ensemble to be honest, I think Orson Welles was more believable and interesting in that film with the 1 or 2 scenes he had. Robert Shaw was truly awesome, there is no denying that, and definitely passed way too soon. So much potential lost.

    Note to myself: Don’t ever feed the trolls. Don’t get involved in others drama. Don’t let myself be swayed by others predictions, trust my gut more often!

    Note to all others: If you don’t happen to like me, ignore me. It is that simple.

    Shaw could definitely ham it up if he wanted to, but when he reined it back, he was truly a force of nature in acting. His work in Jaws, The Sting and Battle of the Bulge shows the sheer nuance he could bring to a character. Sad he wasn’t sweeping for Jaws because he should have.

    @citizenblake Shaw as Martin Hessler in Battle of the Bugle creeped me out as a kid. I thought when I saw him, “Okay, now that is a legit NAZI.” Easily one of the most underrated movie villains ever, at least in war movies. I just checked his IMDB because I knew there was one more film of his I was forgetting, but I think he would have been a more deserving Supporting Actor Oscar nominee for The Taking of Pelham 123 than Michael V. Gazzo was that same year.

    He was great in Pelham. He’s what I call the Gary Oldman of his era.

    Kathryn Hahn is the Meryl Streep of comedy.

    Kathryn Hahn is altogether better actress than today’s Meryl Streep.

    Burlesque deserved Oscar nom for Original Song (but for Xtina’s Show Me How You Burlesque) and then some. I thought it was one of the best films that year.

    I completely agree! My only issue isn’t with the film itself story-wise or character-wise, but the billing. I think that Tony Gilroy deserved to be credited as a co-director for all those reshoots he did for the epic last act of Rogue One. I know that wasn’t allowed to happen because of stupid DGA rules, but he should have been allowed to share helming credit with Gareth Edwards, in my opinion.
