I never buy that idea that Sally Kirkland came in second. She says that and promotes the idea but it was a small film which I doubt many people even saw. Hunter and Close were in Best Picture nominees.
This is a good year. Lots of these films (Fatal Attraction, Moonstruck, and Broadcast News especially) hold up well. Fatal Attraction was even better than I remembered it. (the acting, editing, cinematography)
Glenn Close (should have won)

I still don’t understand how Close lost.

It is odd that Mia Farrow is a supporter of Polanski despite her problems with Allen.

I’m surprised Meryl Streep supported him so. She was asked at a film festival about him and said this
Ignore the rest of the video. It is some political group. I couldn’t find her just saying she regrets him being in jail.
I doubt she’d say that today post #metoo nor would he win the Oscar or…[Read more]
Somebody on here told me (rather rudely) that both Close and Amy Adams are supporting characters and the kid is the lead.
(then that person got banned from the site so who knows if the info was valid. The book could always be different from the film.)

They needed to pick one person and push them for the award (like Mahershala Ali in Moonlight.)
The way it was now it was such an ensemble that I don’t think people were able to pick one person and say they deserve a singular nomination. Appropriate though that it did win Best Ensemble at SAG. It really was an ensemble effort.

I thought she did pretty well in Chicago considering she had never sung or danced before. I see you are not a fan though to put it mildly!

Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep, Jessica Lange, Maggie Smith, Helen Hayes, Ingrid Bergman.
That is almost like a list of the greatest actresses ever.
Who are the men with double wins. Without looking it up I’m saying Jack Lemmon, Jack Nicholson, Denzel, and Gene Hackman. Also a great group.
Guess it shows they can all play leads and then a…[Read more]
RobertPius replied to the topic Is the 'Best International Film' category obsolete now? in the forum Movies 1 week, 3 days ago
So now that is is Best International Film and not Foreign Language film where does that leave British or Canadian films etc. Are they eligible?
What prompted the change?

Did he ever say?
I feel like voting for JoJo for Costumes. That is the film whose costumes I remember the most. They really stick in my head. Anyone else?
I think it could take editing too. JoJo is an unpredictable variable in a lot of races.
RobertPius replied to the topic Lead or Supporting no. 19: Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada in the forum Movies 1 week, 5 days ago
Would she have beat Jennifer Hudson (another is she lead or supporting performance?)
Meryl’s overdue narrative didn’t seem to kick in until The Iron Lady.
She gave a haunting performance in that film and was a strong contender for the 1969 Supporting Actress Oscar (even though I also love Goldie Hawn in Cactus Flower.)
