With a Casting Director at the head of the Academy, and BAFTA already announcing a Best Casting category, it’s surely only a matter of time before an Oscar for Best Casting is announced.
But which films would win this from years gone by?
Would it marry with Best Picture? Are the nominees copies of SAG Ensemble? Does it change any of our Best P…[Read more]
The film is ALL about Sharon Tate, even if she doesn’t have the most lines or screen time. It’s in a similar vein to how Pulp Fiction is fully reliant on Mia, and The Hateful Eight is all about Daisy.
There’s a big difference between a female actor not having an abundance of lines, and misogyny.
The theatre scenes are among my favourites of th…[Read more]
This is a great film. Leo is the standout to me. I loved Robbie too (no she doesn’t have a huge amount of dialogue but I feel that’s more down to the structure of the film).
I knew next to nothing about the Manson murders, but have read up on some of it now since watching this. I kind of can’t wait to rewatch it knowing a bit more about the bac…[Read more]
The film is great and one of my favourites of the year so far (one of three five-starrers for me).
However, it stands a limited chance of nods outside of International Film. It’s not your typical Oscar foreign language sweeper like Amour, Roma, Letters from Iwo Jima, Life Is Beautiful, La Vie En Rose etc.
It’s very current, thrilling and ten…[Read more]

Big Hero 6.
It’s not even close. It has SO much heart, humour and contains excellent storytelling and animation.
Up there with Inside Out and Toy Story 3 as the best animated films of the decade.
Getting one over on the Oscars, BAFTA have today announced they are adding a Casting Award to their film and television award ceremonies.
It will recognise the achievements in the craft of casting and its importance in film making.
Second most nominated Drama Series this Emmy’s from just THREE episodes without any Lead or Supporting nominees, a full seasons worth of writing, directing and guest performance contenders and without being eligible for Series.
We’re up to ‘Heroic’ here in the UK. I seriously don’t get the lukewarm reactions.
It’s not felt glacial to me and there hasn’t been a dud episode.
We’ve seen with other shows this most recent TV season that rushing a great story to finish it all really weakens things across the board.
Marielle Heller & Lynne Ramsay were both deserving, and better than half the actual Best Director lineup. Ramsay was my personal winner.
Both films were overwhelmingly under-rewarded last year.
And I agree, being nominated because you’re a female should not be a factor. But when there is such a big choice of female directors this year, t…[Read more]
This has to be the first year we get to have multiple female directors nominated, surely?
We could even have more females than males, or an entirely female lineup (unlikely, but you never know!)

Kasi Lemmons – Harriet
Melina Matsoukas – Queen & Slim

Black Panther was more than a superhero film, it became a cultural phenomenon and you felt like you were watching history being made.
Endgame was big and flashy. Nothing culturally impactive came with it.
