Interesting to see Phantom Thread pop up more than Inherent Vice. I mean they are both bad but I thought Vice would get mentioned more.September 7, 2019 at 12:16 pm #1203062130
It looks like pta’s Magnolia at least in its sentimentality and melodrama.August 23, 2019 at 10:34 am #1203036303
Paul Thomas Anderson didn’t get anything for The Master, so I’m not sure it’s a snob thing. I feel like they’re just flukes that happen when you assume everyone else is voting one way, so you vote differently to bring diversity to the nominees, but then everyone does that so a favorite somehow vanishes. That said, Phantom Thread >>> Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
That’s a good point. Forgot about The MasterAugust 23, 2019 at 10:19 am #1203036286
Amy Adams in Best Actress for Arrival Carol for Best Picture and Director Kathryn Bigelow in Best Director for Zero Dark Thirty Ben Affleck in Best Director for Argo Martin McDonaugh in Best Director for Three Billboards Bo Burnham in Best Original Screenplay for Eighth Grade If Beale Street Could Talk in Best Picture Roma in Film Editing Birdman in Film Editing Justin Hurwitz in Original Score for First Man (and the film in general)
The Martin McDonaugh one isn’t really puzzling. The directors branch is a bit snobby and decided to ignore in favor of AndersonJuly 22, 2019 at 1:23 pm #1202990273
Why would Anderson’s last three films be in there? They are bad. I mean do not honestly like Inherent Vice.
Also Black Swan should be in there. Also Arrival.June 28, 2019 at 1:31 pm #1202955346
The third section is quite beautiful. Wonder whenever he makes another movie if he’ll think of using this DP.June 28, 2019 at 7:46 am #1202954918
Interesting nobody includes Paul Thomas Anderson films.
The answer is No Country For Old MenJune 28, 2019 at 7:06 am #1202954866
To be fair I haven’t read his novels since he early ones but maybe his ewer ones aren’t that great anymore.June 9, 2019 at 2:25 pm #1202929716
Has anyone heard anything about The Last Thing he wanted. I wonder when Netflix will start promoting that?June 7, 2019 at 12:13 pm #1202927360
Once Upon A Time will get nominated for Picture.May 28, 2019 at 3:00 pm #1202914030
I hope Goldfinch is great. I know the book is polarizing but I adored it.
I can’t remember was there negative or positive reactions from test screenings. I feel like I heard something about that here.May 27, 2019 at 11:27 am #1202912461
That would be funny if it turned out to be Cats is the film everyone sleeps on.
Also not sure about the Last thing he wanted. My friend read the book and has no idea it would make a film.May 15, 2019 at 12:46 pm #1202895227
The Academy loved Green Book and it played well with festival audiences so it won with a preferential ballot,May 9, 2019 at 11:59 am #1202886785
Interesting that the kids seem to be included. Looks like this part will actually be closer to the structure of the novel unlike the miniseries or Part 1April 26, 2019 at 9:59 am #1202868162
I guess I should order this book and read it since I’m guessing it will hue closer tot he novel.
Also for people online who are shocked that he turned down Innuarito and PTA why are they shocked. Leo is a smart actor who stars in film that may be auteur driven by they are mainstream and make money. He’s already been in an Innuarito film and PTA makes small polarizing art films that don’t make money. GDT is hot right now and his films connect.
People should just be happy that PTA and Innuarito have some sort of script is they like those filmakers.
