Minding the Gap was incredible
It looks like I’m going to rent Silence and finish watching it tonight.
Emma Stone’s accent in The Favourite was pretty good, I thought. But yeah most of the time American actors playing British doesn’t sound great.
BAFTA Awards tonight, another good indicator Roma will win Picture/Director. Rami wins Actor and Olivia Colman wins Actress. The Favourite picked up a bunch but BAFTA favors British films.
Roma winning Best Picture would be fantastic. It definitely has the best chance any non-English language film has ever had, of the few that have been nominated.
Trying to catch up on all the stuff I've missed before the show. Was gonna see The Favourite tonight finally but we're gonna get a butt load of snow so I think I'll stay home and watch Minding The Gap and/or Roma.
What a joke
It's like every time they attempt something to become more relevant it backfires.
I don’t understand why they think any of this is a good thing. Anyone who *wants* to watch the ceremony wants to see all the awards. Anyone who doesn’t isn’t going to just because you cut four of them. It’s just pissing off the people they’re trying to retain and making themselves look really bad in exchange for zero benefit.
GDT knows what’s up as always.
At the drop of a hat I couldn’t name at least a dozen each of notable cinematographers and editors, but their work is integral to a quality movie and it’s certainly a factor in determining a Best Picture in any given year.
Also this year cinematographer could also go to director and that is amazing and needs to be seen.
the academy hates film so much
I wonder if they’ll walk this back the same way they did with the whole “popular film” category.
I’m not surprised the academy keeps making dumb decisions because execs think it’ll help the ratings, I’m surprised they keep doubling down on bad decisions despite the fact that there’s been basically universal criticism for every decision they’ve made this year. I’ve yet to read / hear anything saying “yeah this is a good idea” to anything they are doing.... who is their audience at this point
hopefully last year's best picture and perhaps this year's best picture winners change their mind
The Best Picture Championship Belt
At least Cooper won a Best Director award from PETA
Fun fact, Zooey’s dad is a six time Oscar nominated cinematographer and he’s nominated this year
Funny how the sidelined categories are basically the only technical categories where Disney isn’t nominated. Hmmm...
