How are critics still reviewing films? Screeners?April 2, 2020 at 1:24 pm #1203406850
This entire field has a giant asterisk on it until we find out if Adele is releasing before or after this season’s eligibility period ends.April 2, 2020 at 1:17 pm #1203406835
It’s actually the opposite. If things improve dramatically, the spread can be delayed to later in the year. But at the rate it’s going currently, hundreds of thousands will die but it will be basically done by summer because no one will have been properly stopped from getting it.
By this I meant along the lines of a vaccine which of course is unlikely any time soon.April 2, 2020 at 12:09 pm #1203406684
I think that things will mostly be back to normal by then, but I still see precautions being taken. Only nominees and presenters being invited and no red carpet seems likely. Maybe everyone will be seated in every other row just to distance a little more.
I sure hope so but this seems a bit too optimistic given how disastrous the situation is right now. Things need to take dramatic turn for the better for things to be back to normal by September.April 2, 2020 at 9:54 am #1203406503
Yeah it would be a good idea to just postpone them. Would that lead to the Grammys and Oscars also being postponed? It’s possible in my view.March 29, 2020 at 12:38 pm #1203399623
Decent film but has one too many silly moments for me to consider it a great film. Would be forgotten awards-wise any other year for sure but this is an unprecedented year so who knows.March 23, 2020 at 6:17 pm #1203392040
Yeah I think they would’ve just announced the winners. Despite the Academy’s decision to move the Oscars up to early February this year being a very unpopular one they did unintentionally avoid a huge headache in doing so.March 20, 2020 at 7:00 pm #1203388759
Bingeing some modern classics for the first time: The Sopranos, Futurama and Parks and Rec.March 20, 2020 at 6:48 pm #1203388754
There are so many things we don’t know, for instance how the virus will react to warmer temperatures. Here (in Italy, where the bad situation is happening “in advance” compared to other European countries) things don’t look to get better anytime soon. Therefore every summer event in Europe is up in the air, I guess.
It has been reported (see https://www.technologyreview.com/s/615381/coronavirus-spread-could-slow-with-warmer-weather/) that the most recent analysis suggests warmer weather does reduce the transmission of the virus. So hopefully this helps it subside in the coming months.February 13, 2020 at 4:29 pm #1203346085
The No Time To Die song is no Skyfall but it’s still good enough for an Oscar nom/win.February 13, 2020 at 4:27 pm #1203346080
If Hillbilly Elegy is at least on The Two Popes level of success, Close is sweeping. Adams is getting Melissa Leo’d yet again.
No chance they both get put in supporting.February 13, 2020 at 3:15 pm #1203345970
I don’t think Woody Allen is in the same bracket as Polanski and Weinstein in terms of controversy considering he won an Oscar just 8 years ago for Midnight in Paris long after his scandal.February 11, 2020 at 2:39 pm #1203343339
Glenn is hated on these forums. So she’ll received Renée’s treatment. They will come up and trash her before the ceremony and say all over the place that it’s a career win, just like they did with The Wife.
I don’t think that’s the case at all with either actress. It seems there’s always a loud minority that disagrees with some of the acting front-runners/winners every year.
