I don’t think Spielberg is trying to ban Netflix and other streaming services from submitting their content for oscar consideration. I think he would like to see their films get a real theatrical run in order to qualify. Is that unfair?February 11, 2019 at 8:33 pm #1202772860
The only rappers who have won in the general field are ones who play instruments. Lauryn Hill, Big Boi and Andre 3000, and Childish Gambino all play instruments. Voters definitely favor the more musician type.
There is a bias against rap in the GF. But I haven’t seen hard rock/metal/alternative do very well either (Radiohead’s OK Computer did nab an Album nod but acts like Nirvana or Metallica have never even gotten GF nominations. I mean, Smell Like Teen Spirit/Nevermimd did not get Record/Album noms. Crazy.February 11, 2019 at 1:08 pm #1202772462
Most people have seen “All The Stars” performed live, and it did not have a great reception. It’s not unprofessional or disrespectful. He doesn’t owe the Oscars anything.
Kendrick isn’t performing at the Oscars? That’s a shame. True, he doesn’t owe the Oscars anything but it’s too bad since it’s not just about him. Black Panther was culturally groundbreaking, became a worldwide smash hit and landed a Best Picture nomination. With no acting nods, his performance would have been a great way to honour and represent the film during the ceremony.
I do wonder though, that, if he was cleaning up the awards, would he be resisting? I doubt it.February 11, 2019 at 9:30 am #1202772143
Darlings, I wish Cooper made a Sharon Stone and sent luxury watches to the HFPA. We are having Animatronic winning because he lost that fucking Globe. We have learnt that if you want to win an acting dildo, you have to prevail at the GG and everyone else will sheep it. So sad and, obviously, disgusting.
Yup. As much as we like to ridicule the HFPA, they set the scene for how things will likely play out. Malek’s momentum started that night.February 8, 2019 at 7:10 pm #1202765792
I want to defer to you all since I don’t follow the music industry as closely as I do TV/Film but why is Cardi’s ‘I Like It’ not as likely to win Record as ‘All the Stars’ or ‘This is America’?
From my understanding, it
1) is an acclaimed track
2) was a commercial/radio success
3) comes from a relevant and current female artist
4) feels similar to previous winners ‘Uptown Funk’ and ‘24k Magic’ (big, fun, feel good tracks with strong production values).
I just figured it would be one of the frontrunners, along with ‘Shallow’.February 8, 2019 at 6:43 pm #1202765778
I hope he gets a good reception with Little Women.I really doubt he can play royalty on The King.
The 1994 version was so good and Ryder and Bale were just perfect as Jo and Laurie that the comparisons will be inevitable.
I really like Chalamet (and Ronan and Getwig) so I’m hoping for the best but the standard is pretty high.February 8, 2019 at 4:36 pm #1202765678
Um. Does Sean Penn think he is helping Cooper?!?February 8, 2019 at 2:59 pm #1202765574
Anyone else think it would be in Cooper’s best interest to attend the Grammy Awards and not BAFTA on Sunday?
He’s not going to win at BAFTA, but at the Grammys he could perform with Gaga and possibly give a speech if Shallow were to win an award (I’m sure Gaga would let him make a speech since he hasn’t had the chance at all this season to give a televised one). There will be more buzz about the Grammys than BAFTA regardless, plus your know their performance and any wins would trend worldwide.
With Oscar voting beginning 2 days later, Cooper may be more on the mind of voters after his Grammys involvement and they may be more inclined to give him a vote thinking, “wow, this guy really did it all for his film.”
Is this just a crazy thought of a fan disappointed in this race, or does it actually have potential?
Yes. I think he should go to to the Grammys. Not for campaign strategy – it probably is wiser strategically to go to BAFTAs – but out of pure experience. I mean, when will he ever get this close to winning a major Grammy award? Not some spoken word-book narration but a a top Grammy prize? For singing? He’s a contender in Duo performance and freakin Record of the Year. He will likely be back at the other awards. Grammys? Not so much.February 4, 2019 at 1:12 pm #1202761329
“Marianne Jean-why”. Dying.
I know it’s kinda terrible but that made me laugh.February 2, 2019 at 4:29 pm #1202759334
On another note, Malek spoke about Bryan Singer last night. Sounds like he’s trying to walk back (or make people forget) his odd ‘Freddie’s spirits’ comments and really distance himself from Singer.
Voting opens on the 12th (right?) so everybody will be up there campaign game. But does Malek have to at this point? He’s the frontrunner. The likely winner by all accounts. Clearly, his people think he needs to address it but it could backfire.February 2, 2019 at 4:10 pm #1202759328
I might have missed it but I haven’t seen hate towards Malek here. I have seen some hate towards the film and critique of his performance. Personally, I agree with the criticism. I just don’t think it’s an Oscar worthy performance (and like many here, I was thrilled when he won the Emmy for Mr. Robot).January 31, 2019 at 8:37 pm #1202757526
Oh gawd. This is so stupid. 90 seconds each?!? With no host, and headlining performers like Kendrick, Sza, Gaga, Cooper and Hudson, whats the problem? These songs are under 3 mins each.
I don’t get it.
