I just watched Trial of the Chicago 7 and I gotta say I do not think Sacha Baron-Cohen deserves an Oscar nomination for this performance. I get why people are finishing the movie remembering his name because the role was a meaty one with lots of good lines and speeches but Baron-Cohen himself was unimpressive. First off, the accent is horrendous and I really struggled to get past it. But even so, when the role called for more depth it felt like he struggled to go there. Mark Rylance easily outacted him and, frankly, so did Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. I think if any of the Trial actors get into supporting it should be those two.December 21, 2020 at 11:29 pm #1203938644
Country music just lost another legend: K.T. Oslin https://musicrow.com/2020/12/breaking-iconic-singer-songwriter-k-t-oslin-passes/ God bless you and her family always!!! Holly P.S. To me, her videos only made her songs even better. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWqNzbPsD2o https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QL241dZKuJ0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xF5r-CSB38E https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8IDLwPt76c
Rest in peace, KT Oslin. Love her song 80’s Ladies which she won a Grammy.December 12, 2020 at 9:51 pm #1203915847
One of Grammys best retired categories. The winners and nominees were awesome especially the 1997. Four of the songs were nominated for Best R&B Song. Kudos to Babyface, most of his compositions sang by female R&B singers and got nominated and win.December 11, 2020 at 9:32 pm #1203913417
I’m not a fan of rock music but there are notable rock recordings of female artist that weren’t nominated in this category.
Fighter – Christina Aguilera
Behind These Hazel Eyes – Kelly Clarkson
Mel C – Goin’ Down
Whitney Houston – Queen of the Night (I thought it’s a pop/rock than pop/r&b) and should have submitted.December 11, 2020 at 1:49 pm #1203912658
Whitney wasn’t even nominated for The Greatest Love Of All. She was however nominated only for Record of the Year.December 11, 2020 at 1:39 pm #1203912616
I wonder if “Secrets” by Toni Braxton had been nominated in R&B instead of Pop, will it win over “Words” by Tony Rich Project?December 7, 2020 at 11:57 am #1203900954
Exactly. A nom seem really possible, though the win is beyond reach. Also, I can totally see Chadwick winning if Viola is winning and making history again, like Washington and Berry did when they won best actor and best actress respectively. I can see Ahmed missing, even if he’s getting great reviews. Being the first Asian nominated in leading might prevent that and the idea of diversity by Academy voters seems only more black talent nominated in technical categories (I hope I’m completely wrong since he’s been killing it for more than 15 years).
Sir Ben Kingsley is half Indian, half English. If ever Ahmed will get nominated he is not the first.December 6, 2020 at 12:08 pm #1203898461
I had 2 days off but it took me 3 days to finish it. What in god’s name the critics gave it a positive review? Fine, there are arts and sciences behind the film but forgive me it was a snorefest. Couldn’t believe it’s a Fincher film. Those who stan Seyfried’s performance here better to stop otherwise you are only fooling yourselves. She did nothing to warrant an Oscar nomination. She was good but no. The only positive I can say is my discovery of Sir Ben Kingsley’s son, Ferdinand Kingsley who portrayed Irving Thalberg. God…what a hottie!December 6, 2020 at 8:52 am #1203898062
I don’t think anyone from Mank is getting nominated in that category.
I agree. Though they are good but not outstanding. Still Chicago 7 have the chance if ever.December 6, 2020 at 8:33 am #1203898034
Never stopped to realize that all 3 of Celeste Holm’s nominations were in competition with a co-star.
Twice: George C. Scott, Amy Adams, Maggie Smith and Teresa Wright.
Shelley Winters won twice over actresses who were nominated from the same film.December 1, 2020 at 1:04 pm #1203887729
Warm & Fuzzy by Billy Gilman. I still can’t believe this holiday song isn’t yet a classic one.December 1, 2020 at 2:06 am #1203886433
Dynamite is one of the worst songs of the year along eith yummy.
I don’t find it worst though but I must say Yummy is cringy to listen. I even cringe in one Thanksgiving post over Facebook who was singing Yummy while looking at their food. Ugh…
