The album is pretty great. Is a solid body of work. I would give it 8. Good in Bed needs to go, probably the only song I didn’t like.March 26, 2020 at 3:33 pm #1203395871
Hoping Dua ends with around a 90. I haven’t heard it yet, but based on others and the songs we have heard Im sure it will be incredible. Anyways I’m happy she’s getting this recognition. She really deserves it
I also hope the album does well.
I would like for her to have a really big era to carry her to the Grammy’s and actually win, maybe not AOTY but to sweep pop.March 26, 2020 at 2:49 pm #1203395804
Pitchfork ain’t giving it more than an 8. They rarely do 9 and let’s not talk about a 10 cause it ain’t happening.March 26, 2020 at 2:36 pm #1203395769
I wonder how Pitchfork will review the album.
Although I do think 99 is to high the album is gonna end up in a 86-93 range in MC, but if critic’s are loving it and does well commercially it could be a contender to win AOTY, not just a nominee.March 24, 2020 at 9:31 pm #1203393289
So assuming it comes out, Tom Hanks getting a BUtterfield 8-style sympathetic “please-don’t-die” nomination? (thankfully he’s doing better) Or will they save that for Elvis next year because he nearly died during filming?
Nothing will ever compare to Elizabeth Taylor winning for Butterfield-8.March 24, 2020 at 5:02 pm #1203393155
Neither Clift nor Brando was the runner-up to Bogart in 1951. Why? Because they split the”popular leading man in big BP contender”vote. Also, look at the ’51 precursors if you can. I checked out NYFCC from that year the other day, where Streetcar swept, except for Best Actor. To whom did that prize go to? Arthur Kennedy. The Globes picked Fredric March that year(Kennedy was also nominated, as was Douglas for Detective Story; Brando and Clift weren’t). Of those two, Kennedy had the advantage due to the difficulty of his role
Back in the day there was no such thing as precursors, Golden Globes sometimes got it right. Many Oscar winners went on to win the Oscar without a Globe.March 21, 2020 at 4:01 pm #1203389522
The Talented Mr. Ripley is a great movie, the cast is amazing and has Matt Damon at his finest BUT the ending ruins the whole mood of the movie.March 19, 2020 at 10:07 pm #1203387755
After Hours is AOTY worthy and probably one of the best albums I’ve heard this year, I usually don’t add more than 2 or 3 songs from an album to my playlist but this one is so good I added more than half of it.
Also Conan Gray should totally get a BNA nomination, the album is pretty good.March 17, 2020 at 5:49 pm #1203385064
Rogue One is one of the best films made in 2016 and deserved more nominations and recognition than what it got.
Ben Mendelsohn is amazing.
The story is absolutely ridiculously greatly done.
It really is a piece of art.March 17, 2020 at 8:30 am #1203384166
Frank Ocean doesn’t submit to Grammys anymore. He’s against the way the nominations work.
Lana winning wouldn’t be bad especially in a year that’s really empty with good pop releases, but she needs to submit to alternative.March 12, 2020 at 8:47 pm #1203379838
At this rate Margot Robbie is going to win for playing Harley QuinnMarch 9, 2020 at 5:02 pm #1203376245
