Cat’s Eye is represented.
Only two D-s in my tenure, if memory serves.
You’re not wrong.
Reviews were embargoed until now.
Right, because that really destroyed Hamilton and Rogue One.
Could definitely happen, Erik. Would hate to see La La Land treated with Haggis-like disdain.
“Tell a friend, tell a friend, tell a friend.” —writer-director Barry Jenkins, imploring everyone who’s seen and liked Moonlight to get the word out.
So the question now becomes, if you care about this kind of thing, if Moonlight can win the Oscar over La La Land. Both would make for unusually strong Best Picture winners in my book.
Whoa. Major upset here, no? She had been winning critics’ awards, but I’m again surprised by the mainstream awards love for Elle, especially considering its subject matter.
Richly deserved, at least if we’re talking purely about acting.
Is it me or the play-off music especially loud this year? Like a damn marching band drowning out the biggest moments of their lives.
Gee, I was sure Deadpool was going to take this.
I feel like it’s Moonlight versus Manchester By The Sea for Drama. Whoever wins, we win.
That Jack Reynor is going to be a star, I’d add.
The Academy should definitely include that in their Original Song five count.
Sing Street is… cute.
The movie feeds off her energy, her passion. So many of its most poignant moments are just her in close-up. Also, the “I Ran” pantomime.
He was the most reliable laugh-getter on Community. That’s he’s successfully pivoted to a very different kind of performance—and made me stop thinking of Troy every time I see him—is a testament to his talent.
Not my personal pick (Moonlight), but La La Land is a feat of staging.
Not sure why I’m surprised—maybe because it’s a fairly small film and it opened in August?—but I’m really glad Hell Or High Water has stuck around in the awards conversation. Another A.V. Club favorite that’s having a good season.
