Au contraire, he played that perfect.  Helped, but gave the man space to do it himself.  Best he could have done.

I’m not saying he did it with ill intention and he did go for the hug at the end as they cut away, but clip media is going to show him leaning away and grimacing and make fun. It may be forgotten but he’s been memed enough over the years so who knows...

I didn't see the movie, but how exactly is the guy who played Mr. Rogers in a movie about Mr. Rogers a "supporting" actor?

I saw it and I said the same thing.

Why is there so much singing on the Oscars? Why can't they do swordfights or stunts or Cirque du Soleil stuff?  I'd watch that. 

They're the nominated songs.

Netflix is pulling in big tonight so far.

Netflix and streaming shit shouldn't even qualify.

Why?

If streaming shit counts, the the best short feature is some guy's youtube video.

Precisely. That's television and Emmy domain. A one weekend release in 2 theaters shouldn't count.

Well, they’ve bought old theaters and run these movies in limited release so they can be nominated.  It’s actually a pretty smart business model if you have intelligent writers and fairly formulaic set needs.

Most of the shorts and docs never even make it to most cities.

Is it easier to make Hollywood right now look like Hollywood 1969 or a field look like 1917?

The absolutely last thing I think of as "Music in Filmmaking" is Eminem.

Right.  Tiny Dancer from Almost Famous is iconic, the shot from Reservoir Dogs with ‘Stuck in the Middle’, iconic.  Eminem singing a song from his movie is a different boat

This is painful... the white bread crowd nodding their heads is...  not good

The same reaction was there with the opening song.

The Academy always votes for itself, the only good war movies to ever win always had some anti-war agenda. Actors are some of the most self-congratulatory people on the world.

Roger Deakins doing the forced standing ovation to Eminem is awesome.

"Oh yeah, I've loved this guy since the....well forever!"

Maybe I am a basic bitch but I have not heard of any of these documentaries. I have watched about 7 or so this past year, guess they were not special enough.


American factory is a damn good watch

1917 is the odds on favorite to win best picture.

Screw the haters, song is still awesome! 


Damn straight! That was pretty awesome! (Why was it included?)

Glad Taika Waititi won for Best Adapted Screenplay. Love that dude and loved Jojo Rabbit.
