Loren is getting great reviews. Im keeping her in.October 28, 2020 at 4:10 pm #1203808489
Avatar wasn’t a franchise when it topped the year end list though.
But the fact that they are making sequels made me not include Avatar. To my knowledge, there was always an intent to make multiple Avatar movies, but you are right. Avatar was a non-franchise film.October 28, 2020 at 1:55 pm #1203808226
This could be the first year since 1998 that a non-franchise film is listed as the highest grossing movie of the year.
I am tired of franchises.October 27, 2020 at 10:01 pm #1203807053
Io si by Laura Pausini (Written by Diane Warren) is one of the most beautiful songs I ever heard.October 27, 2020 at 9:54 pm #1203807046
Do you guys think an actress can ever top Forbes as the highest paid actor of a year?October 27, 2020 at 9:52 pm #1203807042
Renee was part of the era of the last superstars which was the early 2000s. Actors were truly household names. Names like Tom Cruise, Denzel, Nicole Kidman, Renee, Tom Hanks, Leonardo, Halle Berry, Angelina, and many more were just massive. Their films, whether good or bad are still remembered today.October 27, 2020 at 5:49 pm #1203806625
I think the move was better for Hudson. Although I was not expecting her to get nominated, she stands a better chance next year. This year could very well be about awarding the statue-less women (Adams/Close) or the hopes of getting VD a Lead Oscar.October 27, 2020 at 5:15 pm #1203806544
I could be wrong, but I think Winslet might have left a bad taste in some peoples mouth. Personally, her working with known rapist Roman Polanski and not caring was it for me regarding her and others might feel the same way. But, it is Hollywood. Maybe, they do not care about that.October 27, 2020 at 5:03 pm #1203806498
Since we mentioned the great ladies who’ve been nominated for BA, I have to mention my favorite performance and that is Pam Grier in Jackie Brown. What a horrible snub.October 27, 2020 at 4:30 pm #1203806395
He literally has all the power in his hands to drive her to Oscar glory but he’s too busy directing another live action Lion King to even think about it now. Yikes
I could not believe he took on the Lion King movie. I think he could definitely get Angela her Oscar.October 27, 2020 at 4:27 pm #1203806392
I think Angela was Emmy snubbed for The Rosa Parks Story.October 27, 2020 at 2:12 pm #1203806126
I have to disagree with a few things regarding Viola. She is definitely one of the most talented women working today, but saying she struggles and is fighting is basically what every actress is doing.
Of course you have women like Cate Blanchet and Meryl Streep who pretty much get whatever they want, but most actresses will not experience that. Viola has accomplished something that most actors dream of. She is not only a Triple crown winner, but she recently ranked as one of the top 10 earning actresses by Forbes magazine. That is the ultimate dream.
Regarding HBO, there are multiple shows that reflect Black women in many different lights. Lovecraft Country, Watchmen, I May Destroy You, Insecure, Euphoria, Betty, Westworld, and A Black Lady Sketch Show. These programs just happen to not feature Viola Davis, which is okay.
In terms of television today period, I am seeing more Black talent than ever and that truly exciting. Gives me hope.October 27, 2020 at 1:15 pm #1203805961
I think the Drama Golden Globe could be a showdown between Viola Davis and Sophia Loren (of course this is based on trailers). Not only has neither won but their performances, based on the trailers, screams Golden Globe winner.
I know this is super early but it would be cool if this season played out like 2008 with Marion Cotillard vs Julie Christie.
Christie (Loren) won the Drama Globe, Critic’s Choice, and SAG.
Cotillard (Davis) won the Musical Globe, BAFTA, and Oscar
