I predicted Ana Paquin’s & James Coburn wins correctly (all those years ago).
Also, Catherine Deneuve’s nominated for Indochine.February 19, 2020 at 5:36 am #1203351733
Probably Scarlett, then Ronan.February 14, 2020 at 1:14 am #1203346508
I’m on the fence with her work in the film. She’s good in so far as what she has to work with but there is nothing special about her character or performance.
If I was an Academy member I would have voted for her as a ‘career’ reward than the actual performance. Also, that I didn’t think much of ScarJo, Margot Robbie and was also on the fence about Florence Pugh voting for Dern would have been a no-brainer for me.
(I haven’t seen Richard Jewell so can’t comment on Bates’ performance).
Funnily enough my own best supporting actress line-up are all from foreign languages films this year but speaks volumes of the lack of great roles of women in 2019.February 11, 2020 at 4:31 am #1203342610
Zellweger’s win will not age tell. The film is already largely dismissed by many and it is little better than a 3rd rate TV film though Zellweger is fine in it she was hardly award worthy. The TV film made about 15 years ago starring Judy Davis as Judy Garland was a superior film and performance.February 9, 2020 at 4:37 am #1203336074

Oh Mercy, Matthias & Maxime, Sibyl & Little Joe to be seen shortly.
I’ve all but given on on Mektoub, My Love: Intermezzo turning up and if it does it is unlikely to be the version shown at Cannes. A real shame because I loved the first film.February 9, 2020 at 4:31 am #1203336070
Actor Volker Spengler, aged 80. Regular Fassbinder actor best known for In a Year of 13 Moons: https://sportinfo.com.ng/volker-spengler-death-obituary-volker-spengler-german-actor-year-13-moons-passed-away/February 6, 2020 at 3:38 am #1203332584
I’m 99.99% sure the actress is Sally Kirkland – she fits the description to a tee. She’s around Diane Ladd’s age, has an iconic Oscar nomination, has appeared in a couple of Oscar nominated best pictures (JFK, The Sting). She is also the sought of actress who would LOVE to appear in a Tarantino film.
My guess for the actor is Brian Cox. He mentions ‘Marmite’ which is a British breakfast spread and all the criteria relating to the actor match up with Brian Cox. He has been nominated for an Indie Spirit Award (for L.I.E.), has received SAG nominations and is a much loved series on TV (Deadwood) not to mention that show he is currently on that is hugely popular Succession. He has also appeared in a number of Oscar nominated films – not best pictures nominated films, simply Oscar nominated films. Also, he is ‘International’ being British who works in both the US and UK.February 5, 2020 at 2:00 am #1203330608
Portrait of a Lady on Fire. Of the nominated films Les Miserables. And of the submitted films Queen of Hearts (Denmark).January 29, 2020 at 4:28 am #1203318106
I’ll only watch this because its directed by Cate Shortland whose three previous films I like to varying degrees. From the great Lore, to the very good Somersault and to the good The Berlin Syndrome.
Though I must admit I’ll be waiting for streaming. I’m not a fan of the Marvel films and have only seen probably about half of them.January 29, 2020 at 4:22 am #1203318102
I’ve only seen Portrait of a Lady, Les Miserables, By the Grace of God, I Lost My Body, The Swallows of Kabul & Atlantics.
Two of my favourites got zero nominations: Who You Think I Am & The Summer House but that doesn’t really surprise me.
Hope to see a number of the other nominated films in March.
Wonder how long before the Polanski film is picked up for distribution in an English speaking territory. Apparnetly the upcoming French DVD/Blu Ray release will not have English subtitles.January 22, 2020 at 11:53 pm #1203299836
