Think of these Tribeca awards as MTV Awards except with verisimilitude and class:
This old RETROCRUSH piece is really cool. I have several sets of the glasses, still, and I do have some VHS movies in 3D. I should hook up the ol’ VHS player. Kids, a VHS player is how we used to watch movies at home.
I like how the IMDb rating (apparently) goes up to 11.
The Many Memes of an Oscar-less Leo. Heh.
They’re right, Scorsese and DiCaprio aren’t winning this year.
Did Ellen go too far, or not far enough? I kind of liked her monologue and her overall hosting skillz. Loved the selfies, of course.
Well, the hallowed hour is nearly upon us, the Super Bowl of movie fans, The Oscars. We have six polls open on the site:
And to thank you for reading this, I’ll add this fun Oscar(R) moment!
Ryan Stone’s conversation with guy on Earth – from his perspective: http://www.screenrant.com/gravity-spinoff-short-film-aningaaq-online-oscars/
I didn’t see August: Osage County, but I remember seeing the trailer and thinking that was Jennifer Connelly, not Julia Roberts. So I guess what I’m saying is that I don’t have an opinion on the movie. But I don’t think Roberts has much of a chance against this competition. Nyong’o and Hawkins each stood out in diametrically opposed performances, and Nyong’o did win some awards for her work. Squibb was terrific in Nebraska – it wouldn’t have been nearly the masterpiece without her.
I think J-Law takes this. Go, J-Law!
Here’s the deal. Fassbender was a terrifying menace in 12 Years, and Abdi was a menacing terrorist in Cap’n Phillips (especially for a newbie). Cooper was very good in American Hustle, but it was an ensemble piece, really. I’m sure Jonah Hill was awesome. But one guy has been getting a lot of kudos and awards this season, and I bet he wins – Jared Leto.
Lot of young bucks here. David O. Russell? Alexander Payne? Steve McQueen, not the long-dead actor? There’s also Alfonso Cuaron, who’s not really young but is known to most of us as one of the myriad Harry Potter directors. Oh, and then there’s the Scorsese Slot. I think this is a really tough field, and this may be a year in which the Best Director won’t have directed the movie that wins Best Picture. I don’t think Scorsese is winning this year, and although I liked Nebraska, I’m reluctant to paint Payne as the winner. I think Russell wins.
Well, let’s see, you have perky Amy Adams playing down and dirty; you have terrified Sandra Bullock, who’s already won; you have reliable Cate Blanchett, who’s also already won; Dame Judi Dench, who, yep, has already won, and then you have the Streep Slot.
I wish Sandra would win, because she was THAT GOOD. But it’ll be Blanchett.
Remember, it’s not who you want to win, it’s who you think will in fact take home the prize.
Now, I reckon a lot of you out there will claim not to have seen many of these. Doesn’t matter, you see? After all, the greatness of a movie won’t be the only determinant of the winner. What movie has been talked about a lot lately? Maybe that’s your winner!
