Marvel Studios needs to reboot the X-Men film series, and recast Lupita as STORM! She would do way better than Berry ever did with that iconic role.April 13, 2014 at 4:26 pm #150885
Dane DeHaan, Andrew Garfield, Felicity Jones, and Emma Stone are Oscar winners waiting to happen when they get the right role. (Yes, I am aware that I just listed out the young cast of ASM2.)
I am still mortified that Scarlet Johansson is still not an Oscar nominee (She should’ve been nominated in 2003) I hope her and Elizabeth Olsen win in the future too.March 11, 2014 at 6:14 pm #146167
Mo’Niques win was a heinous one for me. I preferred Lenny Kravitz to her. She’s horrible all ’round, about as subtle as a frying pan.March 10, 2014 at 1:48 pm #141709
Hi Etchie!! How are you? My friend says hi- missed you Oscar night.
I am fine Jason & friend, thank you. So Cate won and I might as well divulge my involvement with her, albeit very miniscule & remote — I gave input and was consulted on Cate as Global Ambassador for SK-II. But I just fell for Meryl upon seeing A:OC @ TIFF.
In case you missed it, reprinting my perspectives on the Selfie thread as follows:
Meryl Streep was The Catalyst for this Iconic, Epic & Record-breaking Event. She was Most Instrumental in making it what it is right now and was rightfully acknowledged by Ellen live on stage when she announced that they broke Twitter. Just consider the following:
- Meryl’s generosity and her suggestion to expand & include Julia in the selfie which triggered-altered Ellen’s initial idea & intent.
- The concept of creating another record to celebrate Meryl’s record-breaking 18th nomination.
- The spontaneous attraction to others to be included in something historic and record-breaking.
- The spontaneous allure to be with Meryl & Ellen on something unique and will be talked about for a very long time.
Given this recent historic happening, The Academy will be better off always nominating & having Meryl in the race as she always makes it more interesting & a very good copy-content-material. Surely, there will be a different & surprising spin to be concocted when Meryl gets her 19th, 20th, 21st nomination & so on, say next year for take your pick — Into The Woods, Suffragette, The Giver and The Homesman.
No need to worrie Etchie. Despite Meryl losing the Oscar, she will be receiving an honorary doctoral degree at IU this April. No need to worry about the honors deceasing in the future for Meryl, she is still stronger than ever.March 8, 2014 at 3:52 pm #146117
Ah one of my absolute favorite films and performances of all time. Absolutely NO ONE deserved to win over Fletcher that year. That performance still haunts me to this day. I do have to agree that it wasn’t over the top or showy but many other villainous roles. She was completely natural and deceiving from the first panel onward.
Oh and can I say that Nurse Ratched is one of the few villains I actually rooted for in a film? Such a female empowering role.March 8, 2014 at 3:37 pm #146142
I actually really enjoyed this film. Kendrick (one my favorite rising new artists) and Farminga were excellent and wholeheartedly deserved their nominations (Neither could touch the power of Mo’Nique though), and I wouldn’t have minded at all if Clooney (An man I don’t think is the greatest actor) would have won for the role.
I have to say I really enjoy Reitman’s films (Haven’t seen Labor Day yet and I have no intentions of doing so), I couldn’t get over how great Young Adult was.March 8, 2014 at 2:15 pm #453130

If you were to host the Oscars and were allowed to have a co-host, which top two people would you select to host with you?March 4, 2014 at 12:35 pm #145719
Tom Cruise is an atrocious actor. All he does is showy performances that people somehow misinterpret as great acting.
Depp was great in his glory days, but now he is nothing but pure shock value.
I can see Pitt winning an Acting Oscar when he is much older, but now that he has an Oscar I don’t think it matters much if he ever wins again.
DiCaprio gave an Oscar worthy performance imo with Inception, but I have yet to see any performance that is truly Oscar winning. He has worked in the business over for over two decades, but I don’t know why people think he is the most overdue actor ever.

Queen Latifah would be a sensational host too.
Oh please no.
Why are you against this?
I like the mentions of Colbert, Jane Lynch, Bonnie Hunt, and Mo’Nique.March 4, 2014 at 10:16 am #145497
I really want Lupita N’Yongo to get a juicy leading role (One that doesn’t pertain to her race in a racial way like a slave or housemaid like others have been nominated for. Just a great role that every other actress has been winning for these last few years.) and win the Leading Oscar. She is someone that shows a lot of promise in her work. I can see her as the next JLaw or Cate Blanchett.
