Laura Dern, as expected, gave a nice and gracious speech.
Brad Pitt’s speech concerned me at first, but her really turned it around nicely at the end.
Robert De Niro’s speech was not as inflammatory as I expected it to be.
Joaquin Phoenix really amazed me with his ability to give a succinct speech.
Renee Zellweger knocked it out of the park…[Read more]
I’m starting to get tired of the Tony Shalhoub wins here, but I’m also getting tired of Bill Hader not showing.
I’m pleased with Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s win, but very happy that the broader ensemble from TMMM won. And I am truly shocked at Jennifer Aniston’s win. I was really getting ready to believe that SAG-AFTRA members really didn’t want to…[Read more]
Nate replied to the topic Which Oscar Nominated Performance of Saoirse Ronan is the best? in the forum Movies 1 week ago
She was also pretty close to a nomination for The Lovely Bones, when she received BAFTA and Critics’ Choice nominations. My favorite performance of hers so far is in Brooklyn, but I suspect that she’s also got a lot more in her to show us in the future.
It’s such an interesting movie to review now, especially as there has been such praise for this cast and crew over the years.
It was directed by Taylor Hackford before Ray, written by Tony Gilroy before Michael Clayton, with David Strathairn, Christopher Plummer, and Jennifer Jason Leigh all before they finally gained Oscar nominations. And it is…[Read more]
I am in serious shock that Joker is the leader in Oscar nominations this year.
No J.Lo or anyone from Hustlers? Nothing at all for The Farewell? Only Hanks gets in for A Beautiful Day In Neighborhood? Not even a surprise showing for Booksmart? It appears that the only female director Academy members recognize is Greta Gerwig, and not even in the…[Read more]
Sadly, it does feel like most of the Globe winners are going to sweep through to the Oscars, so I’m glad for the additional categories tonight, especially for the ensemble win for The Irishman, which has finally started to win something this awards season, although I suspect OUATIH wins SAG ensemble next week. The adapted screenplay win for Little…[Read more]
Nate replied to the topic 2020 Critics' Choice Awards ceremony: Reactions to TV winners (and losers) in the forum Television 1 week, 2 days ago
Even though I predicted a lot more Emmy winners (Dinklage, Porter, Comer, Arquette, Chernobyl, and Game of Thrones) to repeat here, I am really glad that the winners were more unpredictable this year.
In terms of predictability for this coming year’s Emmys, I think that this definitely boosts El Camino and Collette even more as frontrunners in…[Read more]
I think we’re still waiting on premiere date news for Barry and Insecure and Dead to Me and Russian Doll, as I don’t think HBO or Netflix have TCA sessions scheduled this week, but, if none of them premiere in the next 5 months, then it looks like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel should easily pick up another 8 Emmys this year.
Bumping for news of the delay of the next season:
I don’t think Ozark has announced a return date, nor has Better Things or Dead to Me. Insecure is also a past Emmy nominee which could return this season. I’d add last year’s guest winner Bradley Whitford to the past candidate list, as he will be eligible in the supporting actor category this year.
This hurts Bombshell, The Farewell, Uncut Gems, and many others on the bubble for a Best Picture nomination. Joker isn’t surprising here, but I think it’ll be tougher for it to get in at the Oscars, which I suspect will have a smaller list. There only appears to be consistent passion behind 1917, The Irishman, Marriage Story, Once Upon A Time…In…[Read more]
Ouch, #BAFTAActingNomineesSoWhite. No Banderas, Murphy, Awkwafina, Erivo, Nyong’o, Woodard, Lopez, Shuzhen, etc. This is a terrible PR issue considering the number of diverse possibilities.
In another news, this does also hurt Bale and Ford v Ferrari, er, Le Mans ’66’s prospects and I am very surprised that the BAFTA voters went for Joker in such…[Read more]
The Two Popes was submitted as original at WGA, so the adapted list is as expected in the weaker of the two screenplay categories, but original screenplay really got shaken up, as recent winners Jordan Peele and Charles Randolph were both left out. But I’m thrilled that the women from Booksmart made it in and really hoping that this nomination…[Read more]
Nate replied to the topic 2020 Golden Globes ceremony: Reactions to film winners (and losers) in the forum Movies 2 weeks, 2 days ago
After 5 television awards, we finally got to a film category!
The Missing Link win was indeed flabbergasting.
Paltrow entering the stage right after ex Pitt left was great.
I feel foolish for predicting Lopez over Dern, as Dern’s only Globe losses since her first were also to second generation actors.
I am truly shocked at the 1917 wins and…[Read more]

I was shocked and thrilled by Ramy Youssef’s win.
I was very happy that Russell Crowe won and for his great speech he sent in (pre-Gervais monologue).
I am glad for Stellan Skarsgård’s win, but confused by his speech.
The Succession wins should give it a boost at this year’s Emmys.
PWB gave more great speeches.
Patricia Arquette and Michelle…[Read more]
The category with the fewest number of contenders (according to the reminder list, Colewell and Driveways aren’t eligible, so Karen Allen and Hong Chau join Cate Blanchett as sidelined awards season contenders) also has the most solid list of front runners, as the final list of 5 appears extremely likely to come from the Critics’ Choice Awards l…[Read more]
Field herself noted how her career as an actor didn’t lend itself to a flashier presentation, but I’m glad she received the honor anyway. The tributes to Lear, Pacino, and many others in recent memory also were more subdued in comparison to more musical honorees. But what could they have done, have someone sing (Wait ‘Til You See) My Gidget or Who…[Read more]
I am so glad that I held onto that Jamie Foxx nomination, but I fear that this may be a blip and probably hurts Willem Dafoe more than it helps Jamie Foxx.
Maggie Smith’s Oscar chances are officially dead, as it Downton Abbey’s chances for anything outside of a few visual mentions.
I am really relieved to see Egerton make the cut and think that…[Read more]
After the Globes snub, I was so relieved to see Jerome make the cut!
With Toni Collette making it in over Helen Mirren, she is practically guaranteed next year’s Emmy win and I am starting to worry about Mirren’s Emmy chances.
There was no sentimentality for the last seasons of past comedy champions Orange Is The New Black and Veep and I was…[Read more]
