Just a good church going southern boy, who always watched the Oscars as religiously as church. One of my favorite places to be is in a dark theater, getting lost in another world for a couple of hours.

People tell me to keep giving Ozark a chance but after the first few, those characters were all awful and I couldn’t continue. I may try to give Succession a second chance. Apparently I have to like characters.
Happily stunned for Zendaya. I’m sure Laura Linney was good but she has Phylicia Rashad’s Emmy and was my least favorite part of Love Actually.September 20, 2020 at 7:40 pm #1203723407
I’m so thrilled by that win. I loved Euphoria and she completely blew me away with her performance. The episode she submitted, that scene at her dealer’s door, heartbreaking. Such a wonderfully deserved win.August 22, 2020 at 1:45 pm #1203661070

China Beach I know is on DVD, but not on streaming. I’m sure it has to do with music rights. It took a long time for it to end up on DVD at all. Streaming I guess would be a different set of contracts for music. I did used to have the China Beach soundtrack CD. I loved that CD so dang much.July 9, 2020 at 8:50 pm #1203579292
I voted for Run because the writing was horrid. It could have and should have been so much better. It wasted a great performance by Wever on a mess of a script and plotting.
I didn’t vote for The Politician because I haven’t watched season 2. I didn’t vote for Hollywood because I knew it’d be disappointing and that’s what I got. But Ryan Murphy shows usually disappoint me.June 29, 2020 at 5:03 pm #1203558044
I never understood why they never brought her back. Even if she was regular on other shows , she could of guest as others did. She had such a great character. Wonder if there was issue behind scene, it’s not like that show had perfect behind the scene.
My guess would be the filming locations. Raising Hope shot in LA while The Good Wife shot in New York. Martha, being the star, probably could make time as easily. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! I loved her as Patti Nyholm. But also, Alicia took on different types of clients the last couple of seasons, so probably it was tougher to write in her character?June 28, 2020 at 8:16 pm #1203556311
– Martha Plimpton, Emmys 2012
Martha Plimpton was NOT a coattail nom. She was fantastic on The Good Wife and should have had multiple noms. Makeup nomination for not being nominated for seasons 1 & 2? Maybe. Coattail, never. Sorry, I’m sensitive about my Martha 🙂June 17, 2020 at 2:23 pm #1203539191
Well, this devolved into anarchy at a much slower rate than I imagined.
I think this could be interesting. Stewart does tortured and introverted well, and folks tend to forget she has won a Cesar award and critics awards for Clouds of Sils Maria.
However, I’m in the Gold Derby minority in that I didn’t love Jackie, so I will be interested in how it turns out.June 17, 2020 at 9:07 am #1203538396
Did anyone watch the animated special? I did and I thought it was good. The writing was very sharp and extremely timely. Rita Moreno is still a superstar, even in animated form.June 12, 2020 at 8:45 pm #1203530562

So very very thrilled!June 11, 2020 at 7:53 pm #1203528950
Jacki Weaver fits the pattern but it really wasn’t out of nowhere. She won at NBR and LA and came in 3rd at the National Society of Film Critics, plus got noms at the Globes and Critics Choice.
The 90s had a few of these that fit the pattern.
Marisa Tomei – My Cousin Vinny (a rare pattern WINNER!)
Mare Winningham – Georgia
Barbara Hershey – Portrait of a Lady
Bruce Davison – Longtime Companion
Michael Lerner – Barton Fink
David Paymer – Mr. Saturday Night
Leonardo DiCaprio – What’s Eating Gilbert Grape
Brad Pitt – 12 Monkeys
Tim Roth – Rob Roy
Edward Norton – Primal Fear
