"academy award nominations" Discussed on WTOP
"Were going for the gold this morning COP So what were the best movies and performances of 2021 Hello the Academy Award nominations are any clue this morning we now know This morning J for a joins us double the TLP entertainment editor Jason Frehley with the list The front burner has to be if we're going by these nominations it has to be the power of the dog on Netflix It led with 12 nominations It's a western sort of like this year's Nomadland I guess you could say The cool thing about that is that the director Jane campion became the first woman ever nominated for best director twice And there's a many men directors who have been multiple nominees It's crazy how long that's taken but good on Jane campion for that Ironically she'll have to go through Steven Spielberg who bested her last time when Schindler's List beat the piano last time she was nominated But the cool thing was to be over too is that west side story makes him the first ever nominated for director in 6 different decades I say it again 6 decades That's insane Personally I'm rooting for some of the crowd Pleasers like Belfast or my favorite was code That's a movie that you know I can recommend to just about anyone and they come back raving as opposed to the power of the dog Eh it's a little more polarizing Not getting good feedback on that one from mainstreamers but to all the way from me Hey any snubs or surprises in the acting category because they're usually are Yeah to me the biggest number in my opinion was for supporting actress Ruth nega not getting in there for passing I thought she was brilliant in that And then as well as the entire cast of that school shooting drama a mass you know Jason Isaacs Martha plimpton and we're not giving out nominations for that What do we even do But of the people that did get nominated I'd say the most compelling storyline for me is whether the crowd fan favorite Will Smith can finally finally win for king Richard here It would sort of be the career culmination after Independence Day and Men in Black pursuit of happiness all that but you'll have to go through Denzel Washington a legend for the tragedy of Macbeth Also interesting best actress fans of Kristen Stewart kind of breathe the sigh of relief that she had been snubbed for by sag but the Oscar nod for Spencer puts her back thrust back in the race But then on the other hand all the fans and stands of Lady Gaga she got snubbed for House of Gucci so I'm saying hell hath no fury like all her little monsters scorned today on social media We have the telecast few weeks down the road Will it bounce back in the ratings or it's been dipping here for the last several years Yeah I think it's gonna keep dipping last year's ratings were an all time low I think it dropped 58% from the previous year which itself was an all time low at the time And honestly headlines of these nominations are probably the worst thing that could have happened for in terms of the ratings You know Spider-Man no way home the box office champ not nominated for best picture while you get a very polarizing slower pace film like a power of the dog gets the most nominees I mean those headlines that's probably the worst thing that could happen If I was the Oscars I would try to get the three Spidey's Tom Holland Andrew Garfield Tobey.

Oscars 2021 Pushed Back by Two Months
"Day the Academy Awards they're going to at least hold off for what eight weeks is it well yes it's yet it's going to be pushed back is just so interesting to me though that the Oscars aren't even scheduled they they weren't scheduled to go until February of next year and already they have been pushed back and I think at I I don't know if it's you know they think that the pandemic is still going to be going on so much but out movies that were supposed to have opened over the past couple of months and hopefully will begin to open toward the end of July have just kind of been left in the lurch unless they've been a running on online platforms and that's something also that they're gonna need to decide about whether movies like the P. Davidson movie movies like spike Lee's movie which I think has a serious shot at some academy award nomination was supposed to open in theaters first before they went to their online platforms whether or not they will be up for academy award consideration but the Academy Awards now aren't even gonna happen until April twenty fifth instead of February twenty eight so pushed back a couple of months any movie that comes out between now and February twenty eighth will be eligible for Oscar
Joker Rerelease is Coming in April, So Prepare Accordingly

And it's going to be going to all throughout the UK. Okay and in Europe and they're going to be announcing more dates beyond
The 2020 Oscar Nominations Din't Have To Look Like This
"We now know who was nominated for this year's Academy Awards and who wasn't there were no women pick for the directing Oscar and only one person of color. Harriet Stars Cynthia. Rio was among the twenty acting nominees. He's but what if like Hollywood does in a few movies. There was an alternate history to the Oscars. Franklin Leonard wrote about his imagined Academy Award nominations for the Washington Post. He's the creator of the blacklist an annual compilation of much admired but unpredicted movie scripts Franklin. Welcome back to the show. Thanks for having me the back. So we're not so sad. Your column is almost funny. It could have been a satirical piece from the onion. What motivated it? Well here's here's the interesting thing right like it. It didn't necessarily need to even be ready satire if anything you know. The article was written as a as a list of all of the people could reasonably have been nominated in place of those who got nominated and I think that there are additional people. That aren't even mentioned in the article. who also could have gotten reasonably? We nominated and no one would have batted an eye except for the fact that it would have been unusual that all the nominees people of color that all of the directing on these women which you know is so far from our reality only because history would suggest that all the nominees should be white and all the directors should be met. Well let's talk about that right. Because there was a lot of great artistic accomplishment from people who weren't nominated I think about hustlers from Lorraine Skafar you on the star Jennifer Lopez Lulu Wong the director of the Farewell Greta Gerwig who made little women performances by Alfie Woodard and clemency Aquafina and farewell the entire cast a parasite right nominated for best picture. None of the actors were so. What's the disconnect in your mind between the great work and the recognition or lack of recognition of that? Great Work Work. I mean the short answer is racism and sexism in the intersection between the two. I think that there is a fundamental lack of appreciation for the work of women directors and the work of Actors of Color. I mean I. I saw it in on my twitter timeline. And yesterday people saying Oh Jennifer for Lopez wasn't really acting playing herself you know and I think there's an assumption that you know the actors in parasite or somehow that's just who they are. They're not actually performing. If you've been in a room with a with Song King Ho you know that that was a heck of a performance. So I think that the assumptions and the appreciation and the value that we give to these performances into these directing Sort of accomplishments is diminished. Because of. WHO's doing it? Someone told me you know. Why are you trying to inject politics politics into these decisions? And it's not that I'm trying to inject politics into it is the politics are already in it. I'd like to see them removed or at least an acknowledgement the extent to which the politics there. We're talking with blacklist Creator Franklin Leonard About this year's Oscar nominations earlier this morning a read a piece in the Guardian about how award. Nominations granted people of Color especially women are often for subservient roles like slaves nannies maids. And that's movies like twelve years a slave that help babble even Roma g think there's some truth in that for the few women and women of color who are recognized they play a certain kinds of part and not another kind of role Yeah I think it's pretty arguable. You look at the list of women of color that have been nominated in London You know I suppose. In theory those nomination is progress because She's not playing a slave. The entire time in actually is playing a freedom fighter rescue slaves but no I look I think that there is again and there are some by a large percentage of certain demographics of American culture and really sort of Western culture culture about what role is appropriate for women specifically women of Color. They are far more comfortable with women in those roles than they are. If you stray too far afield and I suspect Jennifer Lopez playing a stripper gets one over on the men that she is supposed to be dancing for left left. Some significant percentage of members who the Kademi uncomfortable since actors are by far the biggest block of Academy voters. Why do the Oscar? Nominations differ from the screen actors guild. which nominated Jamie Foxx from just mercy the Peter Neon go from us and Jennifer Lopez from hustlers I suspect it's age. I I again this. I'm I'm not an expert on this. You can probably correct me if I'm wrong. But the threshold to join SAG is a lot lower in terms of career accomplishment than the threshold to join the academy and therefore it sort of seems inevitable that the academy voters are probably at least the mean significantly older than your average Sag goater and given the changes that have happened in the industry particularly over the last twenty years. I suspect that has something to do with the different nominations. The academy to a certain extent stint can only recognize movies that get made even if Oscar voters still ignored a lot of great work from underrepresented filmmakers and actors. Now you've worked as a creative executive. I can Hollywood so from where you sat on that side of the table. What needs to change in the kinds of movies that are made and who gets to make them so the academy voters voters at least can pick from a wider pool of eligible performances? Films having the same changes that needs to be made in any hiring environment where there's endemic matthias you know. We need to hire a labor force. That's more representative of the culture. As a whole we need to empower them to tell the stories. If they're most excited about telling we you need to make sure they have the resources to tell those stories well And then I think that combined with the changing demographics of the academy membership. I think you'd see a real shift over time in what gets awarded. I think it's really important to remember that you know the reason this conversation sort of pivots around the academy as bad as the time. I'm during the year when the industry is the most visible to the world and I think that it's the time when you know they're they're they're the most outside pressure can be exerted and it's it's the clearest opportunity community to make these cases right that no women were nominated for best director. It's a lot easier to understand that than it is to understand that ninety percent of the movies that are directed a studios are directed by men by so. I think that that's why this conversation happens around this time of year but the real issue and the one that matters is who Who tells the stories of our time? Do they have the resources to tell them. And do they have the autonomy to tell them as they see fit. So let me ask you this last question. We know that the academy I suspect is probably a little mortified. That only one person of color was nominated in the acting races and that no women were many directors. Is it going to be same as it always was the year from now two years from now. How quickly are we not going to be having this conversation? You know I think that the end of the day we're doing with small data sets and you know the IT. It takes a long time to make movies put movies into the marketplace and then run them through the award season so you know even if everything changed as of today we probably wouldn't be looking at a major change until twenty twenty two and as we all know Those changes tend to be even more glacial than the industry. So it's hard to say you know hopefully within this decade Lord knows. I'm going to do everything to make sure it happens faster. Franklin Leonard is the creator of the blacklist. His piece in the Washington Post is called the twenty twenty Oscar Oscar. Nominations didn't have to look like this. Franklin thanks so much for coming back on the show. Thanks for having

The Snubs and Surprises of the 92nd Academy Award Nominations
"I'm Shawn Fantasy and and this is the big picture. A conversation show about the Academy Awards. They're here. Amanda the Ninety Second Oscar. Nominations have arrived. How are you feeling bright and early on this Monday morning he I do love it? I don't I don't love being here this early. I was saying to you before before we started recording and it just felt like a disclosure before we get into this podcast. My outlook at this hour of the morning is never the best. WE'RE ARE GONNA be flying fast and loose. That's what happens when you record it seven thirty in the morning. We're going to do our best to not make any mistakes. Some mistakes were made by the academy however will be talking about some of them the snubs the surprises houses. Some of the Nice things that happened with the nominations this morning. It's it'll be a robust conversation about what will be happening on February ninth the Academy Awards. Yeah there are some good do things absolutely absolutely some baffling things. Where do you WANNA start? We start with the big picture. Big Picture let's do it okay. Problem in the big picture do you. Yeah I mean maybe we'll start with the most honored movies that seems like the safest place to start first and foremost first and foremost the joker comes to us with eleven nominations now. Were you surprised now. I wasn't either. Let me tell you something about joker people in the academy love. I love that movie actors. They love it directors. We learned clearly. They love it craftspeople. They love it. Composers there in up and down the board and you've only got one acting nomination for this for walking Phoenix. So you can see how it's it's diversely. Spread across the entire voting body any significant takeaways from joker being the leading vote getter so to speak in this in this race. I didn't expect it to be the leading nomination. I think I expected that to go in nineteen seventeen which is a little bit recency bias and also just because I expected nineteen seventeen to grab every single technical nomination because that's it is Zayd technically accomplished movie so joker winning denominations thing is not what you want it is. It certainly changes the narrative. Maybe I mean it'll change what we talk about this morning. I don't know how much it changes the results on the on Oscar night. It's interesting. How as you prepared to speak about joker you pulled your hair back to a pony tail resignedly? I people know what I think about best and I want to stay right here and right now. It ain't going to change. I think that this is an intellectually bankrupt movie. I think it is the emperor's new clothes. I think that anyone and who thinks that this movie is better than parasite or once upon a time in Hollywood or little women are uncut gems has bad taste and doesn't know things about movies straight up and we can do that for for five weeks or we cannot. I'm at I don't really have the energy to do it for that long. Yeah I don't think that that's I don't think we'll be negotiating that until the movie potentially wins Best Picture which you know not always as the most nominated film the likely best picture winner but sometimes it does happen. Tends to happen with noisy movies. Like Lord of the Rings the return it at King Joker ochre is kind of a noisy movie. This is a billion dollar movie and having this many nominations having this kind of box office having this kind of awareness and having this kind of admiration from from the screen actors is. That's a pretty significant thing. So if we saw a joke best picture win on February ninth. I wouldn't be shocked. I don't know if that's what I'm ready ready to predict at this point but I wouldn't be shocked. I neither and in a lot of ways. It makes a huge amount of sense in terms of the academy has refused to WHO ACKNOWLEDGE COMIC book movies or Superhero Movies for years the academy has been trying to update itself to chew reward new types of movies too like to be current to be younger and that the end of the day the score says he caused play. Look it's tiny. Batman man movie winning Best Picture would be academy esque thing to do. It's true and it would be one year after Black Panther which sort of ushered in a lot of these conversations. What else has been honored here once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite the Irishman? You've mentioned those ten nominations for each movie. I don't think a huge surprise there for once upon a time in the Irish Ryan parasite is excuse me once upon a time in the Irishman ten as nineteen seventeen. Let's just talk about those first four gets parasite and I think that is. This is kind of standard operating procedure seizure. What we've got here is three people who made films who have been hugely recognized in the past Quentin Tarantino? Martin Scorsese Mendis as you said the reasons he buys of nineteen seventeen creeping innocent all weekend thinking nineteen seventeen the presumptive frontrunner for best picture. I don't know if I still feel that way right now. A couple of little chinks in the armor that will take a look at identify whether or not that's still the case any big time takeaways from the ten NAM's for all three of those movies are taking things for granted I am. I know that I'm taking granted. It's fantastic once upon a time in Hollywood got ten nominations. It's fantastic. They got ten movies. Nineteen seventeen very impressive movie. We're GONNA talk more about it later this week. It is less surprising that got ten nominations. You know I I saw someone on twitter describing this as a real like wars and cars years which every year at the academy is that you know the nineteen seventeen is the war part of that but very well made movie I it. So that's good. We shouldn't immediately jumped to all of the griping even though I certainly have and the reason I did that is because Joe got eleven nominations and I really don't WanNa talk about it this early in the morning but there are a great films that are being recognized there are among them is also parasite and little women both of which pulled in six nominations. Yes which is interesting. I am not surprised by either of those things but it is. It is a credible accomplishment. And I think a Lotta people on any kind of film. Twitter sense are frustrated by some of the joker recognition ignition but parasite getting six Oscar. Nominations is insane it is. There is no precedent in ninety one consecutive Oscar categories or excuse me ninety one consecutive Oscars for something like this happening so I take some solace in parasites success. So far I live is my favorite film of the year or was it. Yeah I think I put it at number one very early. It's definitely up there and put it on my decade. Let's no this is an amazing film and like and Bongino hoping direct nominated for best director. That's very exciting. And you are completely right that it was it has become such a quote lock or we we we were so sure of it that we are not like Kinda rejoicing especially in the parasite of it. All little women is the same way. There are a a couple notable omissions in the little women. Nominations that maybe put a sleigh damper on it which we will talk more about but you know it did get nominated for best picture. Sure thank the Lord. I thought that was the one where I was. Just GonNa not show up this morning. Yes so there's something interesting about the parasite. Nominations to be one is that the film was recognized in both best editing and best production design. which are you know? Chris categories and on the one hand that's kind of impressive and shows a broad sense of support amongst the academy. No acting nominations for the movie though. Oh No song-ho none of the other actors in the film were recognized. There's a maybe a case to be made that this is a kind of acknowledgement of like a film mastery mastery but maybe not the same kind of Hollywood is star mastery. That movie like the Irishman or once upon a time in Hollywood receives. I'm not sure where I fall on that. I think it does feel like progress to me to some extent the little women thing you make a fair point which is that on the one hand brilliantly made movie with wonderful performances. It's great that it's nominated for best picture as well. The absence of Greta Gerwig In the best director category something. We'll talk about a little bit more here on kind of what that means. It's kind of dangerous to draw mega conclusions from the Academy Awards. There's only eight thousand people in this group and a lot of them are old and weird so you can't we don't this is even though. This is the sort of the definitive document of movie history story in terms of achievement. It is one of the wonkfest award recognizing bodies in the in the world Academy President David Rubin noted that what makes makes this special is that this is the people who make movies voting on. What is the best movies? And that's part of what makes the ostrich great that's part of what makes them kind of terrible is because there's an insularity into some of this. The parasite recognition is something that makes me think. Maybe this isn't such an insular body anymore. Maybe there are a lot of international voters. Maybe this is changing changing. Maybe the the way that we look at international movies changing in our American culture. I think that's certainly true. And I and I do think that the economy trying to change itself and how we talked about the movies has evolved enough that we were starting in a place where we expected parasite to be nominated expected. Little women to be nominated we were talking about whether uncut cut gems would make an end and the fact that. We're all kind of bummed out about the fact that uncut gems got snubbed. which it your? Maybe you're not supposed to use the word snob in that context. But let's use it always it got snuck. Uncut gems was snubbed and that I think that that in does indicate some some progress wrestle. Change some different lineup than we would have had five years ago and a different approach to the movies on the flip side we can. We can only only addressed the world that we live in. And I do feel because we've been having these conversations for awhile and because it was such an exciting year in a year that has parasite parasite the Irishman once upon a time in Hollywood uncut gems. Little women the farewell. What am I forgetting? I mean all kinds of movie. Sure but you know all vendors and games okay shirt KAZAM. Great Active Pika Chew. Well that was this does I can't help but feel that. This is a disappointing configuration of of that list of movies. It's not totally disappointing. But there is something of. We got our hopes up enough. They are kind of like. Oh yeah this is still the academy. And they're still going to be a lots of nominations for the more traditional types of movies

this year from first look the critics have got a much more on point and then lie with me then the glow okay let's go down some the category Best Actor yes Joaquin Phoenix for joker given that Best Actress Renee Zellweger for Judy yes best supporting actor Brad Pitt for once upon a time in Hollywood surprises there yep best supporting actress Laura Dern for marriage story he didn't see it heard was okay best young actor romaine Griffin Davis for the judge a rabid movie don't know if there are a lot of kids related films on there but Hey sure give it to him best acting ensemble the Irishman art is a good okay good let's look let's let's slow down and talk about that but what I don't know if they're put it this way is far as acting goes I was very underwhelmed by the Irishman I I really think people are more impressed by the names will histories and legacies of the people involved in the movie as opposed to the actual performances most people were saying that they really like the the understated performance of Joe Pesci yeah it was nice he didn't really cost a lot he didn't beat anyone with a baseball bat but as far as an acting performance I don't think was all that special I don't think Robert de Niro's performance as the Irishman was special it wasn't anything that I said wow that was vintage Robert Dinero it wasn't like there was any particular moment or monologue or passage the people will come away and say we're gonna be quoting that for years we can quote the godfather we can quote good fellas in an area casino what have you there wasn't really anything all that special quotable about the Irishman as far as the ensemble cast it was great to have all these big names together yeah but they had big names together in the Expendables did make it a great movie big names who were to gather it almost seemed like he was with one last ride together for these particular group of actors for this particular genre and I had heard all the hype in I'm a guy who loves the godfather yeah I'm a guy who loves casino and Goodfellas varying degrees but I loved the genre as a whole love the sopranos so that's something I I I know this genre I appreciate the genre when I saw the Irishman it was really weird it was weird what they did to Robert De Niro and his allies making them blue or whatever so he looked like the actual person it was not necessary they could have chosen a different actor if you're gonna do all that was extracting I did like the fact that it's so it's a movie based on real people real incidents in history and it almost quite like the have the story line and as real events happened it breaks away in the show you this person was actually killed by a bullet to the head nineteen seventy one or whatever and I'll show you a still frame of the actual crime scene or something like that that's something I enjoy it but as far as the acting performances there were not we talk about Star Wars hi Scott Walker same thing in the sense of there were no wow moments for me there was nothing which said to me is like wow I've never seen that before no they were getting killed by basically getting whacked like okay we seen people get whacked like this before because they've already told all those stories just changing the name to fictional people another movie so what we see the Irishman which is based on true events and everything not special I didn't think the performances were special that's not a number that are best acting ensemble right okay I would rather Avengers with that because as far as I'm concerned the acting by Robert Downey junior in Avengers in game was stellar okay well I mean look got it and maybe that's why Avengers in game got best action movie finally can best visual effects of got best animated feature is difficult yes yeah best costume design yes Ruthie Carter for dolomite is my name give it to him let's stop right there if you haven't seen dolomite is my name please see it isn't available on Netflix I think you will view Eddie Murphy in a whole different light a whole new light any have best comedy yeah I agree Eddie Murphy has not only reinvented himself but in this particular performance he's just an actor he's not telling jokes like a comedian he is embodying Rudy ray Moore someone completely different and it's telling you the story of how Rudy ray Moore had to reinvent himself from musician to stage performer two eight kind of comedian telling almost wraps stories on stage right right if you know the history and this is a quintessential LA movie in the sense of Rudy ray Moore is inextricably linked to the history of arts and entertainment in Los Angeles yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah you will recognize the landmarks and everything and that is why eighty Murphy deservedly so also got the lifetime achievement award other film awards go to Quentin Tarantino for once upon a time in Hollywood no surprise a Best Director it was a tie Sam Mendes for nineteen seventeen and bomb June hole for parasite can we just go ahead and assume given Hollywood's reaction and also the foreign correspondents reaction to nineteen seventeen that that's probably going to be best picture Best Actor definitely nominated tomorrow for the Oscar nominations yeah we'll probably will win and I say that for this reason for the foreign correspondents association for the golden globes to give nineteen seventeen best drama award what are the ward was and it had not even been released in theaters yet at that point bright I just said to me that it leaves the Hollywood portion critics correspondence whatever they pretty much made up their mind which says to me Hollywood as far as the voting academy members have pretty much made up their mind and they've probably already decided that this is going to be the movie I've heard nothing but superlatives about it I haven't seen it but I'm just reading the tea leaves it is going to get the nomination but I'm saying if I were to place any money nineteen seventy this Best Picture and Best Director just because of all these other indications I'm getting I agree totally agree best sci-fi or horror which is in an Oscar related category not to to my knowledge but us it's good thank I I I I saw the movie everything was great yeah so I'll be in Emma Jordan Peele fan but I did think the movie is great I do appreciate how he tells very different stories that's the story we haven't seen before I can I can watch it and say like wow that's something different is not the typical horror stories come to typical sci fi story has a little twist at the end is what he usually is going to do now is going to be known for that in the way that M. night Shyamalan is known for that I can appreciate what he does I just didn't think the movie was spectacular yeah but I don't know who would love you to hear it I don't know what was up again so when we come back we'll continue with these critics choice awards and also forecast possibly with coming tomorrow morning with the Oscar nominations this the
A Review of "The Rise of Skywalker"
"Welcome to the twenty minute movie review. Today's movie is the rise of skywalker in movie directed by J.J. Abrams starring Adam driver Daisy Ridley and company with a run time of about two hours and sixteen minutes. This review is certainly a very emotional one for me This is a movie. I've been waiting for for some time. It's the final chapter in the skywalker. Saga which spans over forty plus years. You know. I remember going to see my first when I was about six or seven. So you can kind of calculate how old I am from that But I gotta say without sounding cornball or cheesy. This is a very tough goodbye. There's a lot of things I'm GONNA touch on. I'm trying my best to keep Leonard Twenty minutes. This is the only one I have a lot of trouble with because I have so many thoughts We saw the movie on Thursday night a day before it opens up nationally. And and I have my awesome star. Wars Park on I have my beautiful Star Wars crocs. Yes I said that correctly star wars crocs Fox they are phenomenal but it was a Thursday showing nine fifty match three. By the way. If you haven't seen a movie that way okay. I cannot recommend that enough I max an three d together are just. It's a whole different ballgame. It's it's amazing but it's so refreshing to kind of look around around and see all these passionate star wars fans just here for that last chapter to here to say goodbye it. I'm not saying it didn't feel like a funeral. Oh it felt more like a thank you and thanks for everything. Thanks for the memories. That's the way I certainly felt and I could tell other people kind of had that same mentality -ality except for the kids sitting behind me. You know drinking talking sporadically throughout the movie. Please and I've said this a lot if you go to the movies and you feel like you're one of those people that can't shut their mouths. You can't stay off your cell phone please. Just don't go stay home like this. Movie is one that people the winning for for years and years and years and you know these kids innocent enough. We've all been there but kind god'll just stay home. I mean I'm tickets are not cheap to begin with and to. There's so many people there because they there to say goodbye to this the skywalker Guy Walker. Saga they're there to say goodbye to this franchise. It's been their life. I mentioned my case forty plus years for so many years and for someone to think think they can destroy that and take that apart that bothers me. There was a few other issues in the theater. Not near me. It's like a re stuff online about people being on their cell L. Phone and of course there's absolute eight holes that on facebook wherever that loved to ruin movies and post spoilers and it's just I don't okay people like there's people that just seemingly loved destroying your joy that extends outside of movies as well and it's like you know go f yourself like you're not here I mean it's just it's a very sick mentality to have it really truly is and long story short they completely destroy the movie for us. I I you know you'll hear from I review what I think of the movie but I don't know I'll never understand people that go to theaters and maybe it's subconsciously so you don't realize they're absolutely destroying movie even when you're like innocently talking to somebody next to you. You know many times older people do this. And not realize they're talking out loud like for me the cinemas Mike Cathedral the church is Mike. If you dress where I go to just you know just just key decompress. It's a place of passion for me. It's a place of solitude for me I love it and for people to go there and kind of ruin that I have so many problems with but let's move on with the good stuff. Okay so the rise of skywalker emission as almost a two and two hour and twenty minute runtime and it did feel like Our saying goodbye to a friend and I don't know the movie looks phenomenal the movie itself when you sit there the movie just POPs off the screen it this so good so well put together from that point of view from just popping off the screen the way it looks it's Jj that's such a great job with that I I gotTa tell you what I loved about them. If you're right so that was one I love you. And you'll see that the force kinda takes a new level right. The powers displayed by those who have the force in this movie. Rise to a new level in that was awesome so awesome. I love the fact that the gang was all back together. That made me feel so happy to finally after all these movies. You See Paul and thin and you know ray together. It was really great C. Three Po rt to they're all Carrie Fisher to some degree to it so to see them together. And that's rewarding in itself you. You know there's some other things The Sixth Planet I thought was kind of cool. Little thing there. You'll see that when you guys go to the theater not again none of these. I don't think our spoilers or take away from the movie. Palpitation is really really scary. Gary and again you see him in the trailer. So it's not really a spoiler but Palpa Emperor Pal Patine went from a guy who is just flat out evil to now. He's it's just pretty much like the devil and I love how they did that. It was a so creative so wonderful so kind of original the way they did that. People like world. We need palpitation back in the movie. You could debate that. I love the way they did. It I thought I was worried coming into it saying. Why are they recycling? Emperor Powell between but such a great job in how they did it I WANNA say and I know people say this all the time when a great performance on three and like Oh that person she wouldn't award or that person should it'd be nominated that being said me being a hypocrite. Just now I'm GonNa tell you Adam driver in daisy Ridley both serve some type of recognition for this and I'm not talking about people saying how great I'm saying Academy Award Nomination Good. They are so good in this movie. I was not expecting it. I know they're both phenomenal actors actors. I was not expecting what I saw today. And I compare this to the last movie. I reviewed the Irishman. I know it's a completely different type of movie movie but acting is acting in these two. Were beyond any acting. I saw in the Irishman. Adam driver has taken it to another level level. He is just you know he is solid a-list at this point but his ability is is scary. Good I didn't realize he was this good. And boy support around display and boy. When you see it you will be absolutely rewarded for going to this movie? Just based on his acting alone. I love light speed skipping get being negative show a little bit of light speed skipping that is worth it so for all the reasons I just mentioned. It's one hundred percents worth seeing. And you have the phenomenal John Williams Liam soundtrack who has left us. You know we'll get Indiana Jones Star Wars. John Williams has done so much for us as a composer. You're glad it's almost like expect greatness. And he delivers every time. It's obviously his last movie. I'm doing a score for Star Wars and I love how they ended with John Williams composer her score. I love that he was so good and he has a and I noticed it because I listen to music. He has a brief cameo in the film. which is Kinda cool as bartender so beyond offer that that is John Williams? We'll notice that I noticed it because I'm a nerd It it was. It was a really kind of cool a little cameo but the music is just so good the movie itself up to this point. I can't recommend it enough. Go see it. It's just so oh good and if you if you're like me if you've grown up with this you have a legitimate passion. You have a legitimate love for this franchise absolutely to go see it because what I've listed in the first ten minutes of this review is enough to warrant you going to see this.

Imelda Staunton on the New 'Downton Abbey' Film
"Today today after making a name for herself on the West End Stage Imelda Staunton shot to international fame when she started in the Mike Leigh Drama Vera Drake in two thousand and four it earned her an academy award nomination for Best Actress. Imelda Staunton is also the winner of three Olivier Awards for best actress in a musical for her roles in into the woods sweeney any told and Gypsy in two thousand and sixteen. She's back on screens this weekend. Joining the cast of the feature film version of Downton Abbey she spoke to Monaco's has been Ryland for me joining it now because I'm not in the series and although my husband who plays Carson isn't the series or do feel. I've lived but I think that's that's very interesting to think. NCA- about. Should we want things to stay the same and yet I also think within the story that Julian fellowes has given the female characters. You know I've could a very interesting story line because I come into it but women questioning there. Should I be living in this big house with servants. What what what's happening with the world and yet the audience crave costs and someone steady. They want things to be steady and safe because we are going to hell in a handcart hot. Let's face it to cling onto something that has got tradition. If you like and that's why I dare say we're all obsessed with the royal family or just something that is stable because it's all over the place and I think it stability that people want and yet we have to sort of we have to move within that the big question of course is which tradition should we hold onto and which ones should we move on from and we all collectively need to make this decision and in a microcosm sort of way that's the the dilemma faced with many of the characters you'll your character wants to make a decision without giving anything away that would be quite untraditional it would be against the idea of what what people do you and there are other characters such as Maggie Smith who looks at this and says no things shoot remain how they've always been and it's it sort of feels like a wider dilemma that we just don't know which ones we should hold onto to know but in film terms that's tension and that's what you need to make a drama. There's no point of us will sit making a film that everything's fine or everything's terrible you have to the tension is like the tension between Maggie Smith Skirt and Penelope Wilton character which yes you think about it. She doesn't belong to the House and so her role throughout the series was almost almost and I'm a I'm quoting her now but she was the window from the audience into Downton again will is that right and she could question on behalf of us. You know what was going on on and I think you have to be malleable with all these traditions and you have to move all family of how to move with the Times with you will in Kate and and how it has to move on and I think Downton has embraced that the film you know the fans just desperate for the film and I think they'll be delighted with it but I think they'll be delighted with it because although it's a chocolate box and it's a fantasy they're serious points in the film and I think you know for what it is. I think people go uh no. I think that's that's quite true if the made the cooks assistant questions. Why are we having to do all this the king and Queen or why are we having to you know just just questioning just putting things out there. I think it will make people listen to more than just oh what we have tea and dinner served. Well absolutely it's. It's such a cozy film but also you know we were talking about traditions and in a way the film is about nostalgia isn't it. I found myself coming out of a wondering whether it really is a love letter. Tunis eligible naught because there are so many elements of the film that while very much of the time that he's being depicted here. It's also making it clear that time is moving on culture is moving on whether these people choose to understand it or not the the king and Queen that come to visit wouldn't have any idea about this secret secret gay club. That's happening without anyone's knowledge behind these on March doors you know there is an element of a coach is moving on even if these people are living all all alone in a happy little place in their own little bubble at the end of the film it did make me one east this and affectionate love letter to nostalgia all has more of a reminder that all things will eventually end even Downton Abbey the series the film perhaps the structure itself yeah. I think it's both I think it's it you can give and take away and I feel that you know Downton. Abbey was Sunday night fair and it's not political to cope with a big P. It's as you said it's cozy television and it's feel good and that's that's what this is. We must pretend as any different than the there were few little ingredients. It's in their little bit risky. You know and that's within its remit. I think it hits all those marks and yes you know anything about the old days. It's no style Jake and and Britain does that quite well. I Suppose Julian fellowes you know with Gosford Park for goodness sake all those years ago he knows how to do that. So you see you can push the boundaries so fall with film right Downton Abbey and I think he's done it and I think he's served the regular characters. I'm aware on the periphery of at the end of the regular characters are who the fans want to see and this is a film that has been made because of the demand of the popular you know how many people one hundred twenty million people watching it so he's given them what they want. I think Imelda Staunton they're one of many stars of the new feature film version of Downton Abbey Speaking to Ben Ryland Downton Abbey is out in cinemas
John Singleton, Los Angelesjohn Singleton discussed on The Frame
"The filmmaker John singleton died today at the age of fifty one. He suffered a stroke on April seventeenth and today. He was taken off life support singleton burst on the scene in nineteen Ninety-one with boys in the hood, one of the first films to capture the reality of young men living in south Los Angeles at that time. We always trying to find some excuse to shoot some five. What to give shuttle turn? Shown a horn. The shed you'd be doing it to one of the film's co-stars was ice cube who'd been a member of the group NWEA between NWEA's album straight outta Compton and singleton's film with its rap. Heavy soundtrack, hip, hop culture. Became firmly established in American culture, the movie was released by Sony Pictures and grossed nearly sixty million dollars at the time. A stunning return for a film made by and starring African Americans singleton was the first African American to receive in Academy Award nomination for directing and at the age of twenty four the youngest to be nominated for original screenplay singleton went on to work on a variety of projects in film and television, including as executive producer of the 2017 documentary LA burning the riots twenty-five years later, joining me to talk about John singleton is Franklin Leonard. He's the founder of the blacklist. It's an annual compilation of the top screenplays that are not yet produced Franklin. Thank. For hopping on the phone. We're Shirley joining you under some circumstances. But I guess we should start by singleton only directed boys in the hood. He also wrote it screenplay, and there's a story that he was offered a lot of money to have someone else directed. What was the story? You know? I obviously have no direct knowledge of it. I was thirteen when the movie came out. But what I've read as recently as today that he was and he said that he was not gonna have somewhat from and I quote, Idaho or Encino, directing the story of these young black men in south LA, and what I was twenty two at the time when he made that decision. I think it speaks to the thing that for me defined John which was sort of unwillingness to see anybody tell the stories, but the people who knew from whence, they came, and I think that that was a relatively new phenomenon in this business along with Spike Lee who had done she's gotta have it. Just a few years prior. And I think it defined his career. It was one of the many reasons why I admired him, it's frankly, a bit confusing that he's gone what stands out for you about the writing in that script. What was he able to do that was so authentic? I just think that it was offensive, and it felt like these were people that I knew or that I could have known, and they were three dimensional and complicated and had wants and needs. And, you know, at the time that was not something that was terribly present in the film, or or film culture of this industry. And I think that it was the beginning of that becoming more common. And I think that it's it's staggering to think that the person who was a part of that beginning was only fifty one years old in two thousand nineteen and is now no longer with us at the time that boys in the hood came out in Hollywood there were. Hardly, any black directors working, and certainly even fewer who other chance to make studio films. Do you think his success with that movie created an opportunity for other filmmakers who followed? Even if it still taking a long time for a lot of people writing checks to get on board, undeniably, I think that his he had open doors because it meant that that's excess was possible. But I think even more than that she represented for those of us who, you know, even considered a career in this business that it was possible. And that you could do it in an uncompromising way without sacrificing who you are and the stories that you wanted to tell I, you know, I'd be hard pressed to think of a single black filmmaker working in Hollywood today for whom boys didn't have a profound impact in terms of what was possible. And I think he and spike and and a few others where the harbingers at the beginning of a move. In that direction. And and I know I personally will forever be grateful. The other thing that I think is notable that John singleton worked with a lot of musicians, including ice cube and two bucks a couture, particularly in boys in the hood. He curated a soundtrack that really reflected. The sounds of Los Angeles at the time. What do you think about his collaboration with musicians and how he incorporated their stories and their lyrics into the movies? He was making. Speaks to again, the authenticity of the stories that he was telling those cultural environments don't exist without the music, but also defines them, and I think that he was bringing, you know, the music of the culture into the film culture into the broader culture, you know, I think that it raise the awareness of artists, and it raised the awareness of of that culture to a broader world that has since embraced it. But you know, he was early in that regard. You mentioned you were thirteen when boys in the hood came out. Do you remember watching it for the first time, and what it felt like to see it? I do. I mean, I was living in west central Georgia. But it definitely it felt real in a way that other movies that were telling different stories felt and it felt good to see a film that had people that look like me and my family, you know, forty feet high and theater just wasn't. Something that you could do walk into a movie theater and see a story like that. And I think that it continued whether it was politic Justice or higher learning or or rosewood telling the stories of African American history that had never been told on screen before he was doing something that no one else was doing at the time that he was doing it. And it's I don't know. Like, I said, it it is profoundly confusing that he is no longer here. And at fifty one I'm frankly morning the things that we will never get from him. A consequence

And this has always been the big thing is Netflix doesn't get the same respect because it's competing in a weird way. Even though it's kind of a partner with Hollywood, it's competing now and that makes them uncomfortable. And they're close to being the Netflix studio because there's only six studios that are actually in the academy, and they're gonna lose one. I think when the FOX Disney merger goes through.

"You'll be able to see all the other seven nominees, but Roma will not be included among them, regal and Cinemark have been kind of shy about calling attention to this. But AMC theaters released a short statement to deadline explaining why this is the case, and they said quote for more than a decade movie lovers have enjoyed the MC best picture showcase to catch up on the nominated films that played at AMC throughout the prior year. This year academy members nominated a film that was never licensed to AMC to play in our theaters as such it is not included in the AMC best-picture showcase. So first of all. I love the don't even mention the film by title as like, we're not even gonna talk about a Netflix movie like but second of all this feels like kind of a cop out because the only reason to the movie isn't licensed to plan AMC theaters because they didn't wanna play with net flicks and follow their rules to release it. And this is also movie theater chain that has constantly clashed with that flakes about how much they're closing the window between the ethical release and making a movie available on streaming or home video. So this really is just a convenient opportunity for M C to be like, well, you know, what screw Netflix. We're not gonna show their movies, but at the same time Romans playing on net flicks. So you don't need to go pay to see impeded anyway. So just watch it watch it at home, even though it's worth seeing on the big screen. You don't have to go out of your way to see and theaters, and you don't have to go pay for a ticket to see the showcase to catch it in theaters. You can just catch any of the other movies that are part of the best pictures showcase. Instead, it's a shame that the majority of people out there that aren't in major cities are never going to get a chance to see this film on the big screen. Also, the Razzie nominations came out. I know we all think those are important and worth talking about Brad. You did a round up for the sites. What did the Razzies get? Right. And what did the it wrong? I mean, the Razzies pretty much get everything wrong. Now, just because it's not even fun to like punch down and knock all these movies out that we already know are bad, and like they've kind of taken it to a new level this year to a frustrating sense because obviously movies like Gotti home of the Watson, happy time murders. They'll rounded up six nominations in categories like worst picture worst actor worth actress that kind of thing, but they also decided to take some shots at just the real world happenings by giving Dennis stooges right wing documentary death of a nation on nomination. And then also they included the likes of Donald Trump and Kellyanne Conway and Milania Trump as quote unquote, actor nominees for their role as the subjects of Michael Moore. Documentary Fahrenheit eleven nine. And to me that just seems like, you know, unnecessary as much as I love any jabs taken at the Trump administration any of the clowns who follow that orange circus around. This just seems just like it's just unnecessary and no one really cares anymore from from what I can tell. So it's just it is what it is. It's the Razzies doing what they do by trying to call attention to the worst movies, but anymore just feels lazy when they nominate all these movies and actors and actresses why Winchester, why are the Winchester so much. It's not that bad. Not that great. But like it's such a weird thing to in a year full of like terrible movies to say, here's a January horror movie that that wasn't as bad as most things released last year. And then like just give it a six nominations..

Actress best supporting actor and best screenplay and this movie, I think the people saw Richard E Grand Canyon best supporting actor coming is like but McCarthy getting better actress and depth screenplay. Oscar, you know, it's ruining that. I see a movie that not all people saw. But those people who did see it really connected to it. I'm happy to see this year. I'm hoping courage more people the seek out one of the most underrated and under seen films of last year in Chris, I know you're upset over the omission even in all the technical nods for mission impossible. Yeah. I'm very spry. I under- no illusions that mission impossible would get like best picture or anything that. But from a technical standpoint this movie is I don't want to say flawless, but the, you know, the the effects and the. The the staging the editing yet all of it is so top and for it to be just like completely ignored is very surprised me. I thought at least it would get one technical not it didn't get anything at all. So I don't get it. One thing. I want to talk about is a AMC theaters in regal cinemas. Do this thing where they do their best picture showcase. The show all the movies that are nominated for best picture, and you know, we leading up to this. We were wondering what would happen if you know Romo is actually nominated will this net.

"Major Hollywood movies at women up for this award is very cool, and very impressive and even single nomination hope it encourages people to put border on their radar, but the snub here, I guess, maybe it's not too surprising. Since movie was not necessarily a box office, darling. But the spirit I didn't get a make nominations by making the final round of finalists Aniston movie, wear ambition to all kinds of gnarly practical effects, make it. Let's Tila, sweat and play three characters. She plays a bloated, ancient evil witch. And she plays an ABC. Your old man, and and they're both incredibly convincing makeup effects. And it's really really excellent itself. I think maybe effect it's experience a har- movie, which movie is grizzly. And it is slow and is odd and weird Mavis thrown off some more traditional academy voters because I think that there was a pure technique. And maybe the most impressive make us all last year is it's tough to make sense of this because I mean border is a horror film, right? This element is more fantasy than harm it. It is it is a deeply weird movie. So it's affected get nominated in spirit. And is is definitely odd are dark in odd movies. I formed was like Chris said very challenging and very out of the box for what the Hatem usually considers. And yet Paul Schrader was nominated for his first performed screenplay. So this was a surprise because no one really expected I or form to become an award Starling. But it is possible. Because Paul Schrader is the legendary screenwriter behind. Hind Martin Scorsese classics like taxi driver and raging bull that he kind of has that legacy behind him. And the academy was recyc-. Who can we nominate for best original screenplay? Oh, there's Paul Schrader. I don't I don't know what that movies about. But let's do it. You know, we're going along on this podcast. I want to talk about a couple more of these nubs. I think like the biggest in my mind is virtually surprised that won't you be my neighbor, which should at a best documentary. Jacob can you talk with that? Because what we've been neighbor. It's people love this movie has get great reviews. It played Sundance array rave responses and t to play through all of last year. It started the sort of mini mister Rogers like renaissance and people talk, Mr. Rogers again, and we made twenty million dollars at the box office, which is huge for documentary and up until you know, a month ago. I said this movie would win and the director Morgan Neville. He's an Oscar his previous film twenty feet from stardom one. Best documentary Oscar dozen fourteen so has Oscar written all over it. I do not know what happened. I mean. It's really adopting mind the gap in free solo were nominated. So it's not like there's no taste on display here. But this was a shoe in. I'm shocked. It's wasn't nominated..

"Just a jump starts things or you know, just throw out all the old guard and have everyone everyone knew just take over the academy. Get rid of all those people. I I don't think that's going to happen. But you could read h he's entire right up of this. It's titled more female directors were worthy of a best picture nod than ever, but got shut out of the Oscars. I'll put the link in the show notes moving away from the the the major like four categories. Let's talk about other snubs. Here's a fun fact for you suicide squad has more Oskar than the entire country of south Korea, South Korea has zero Oscar nominations, and it seemed like this year would be the turning point for that. After a hang don's burning started to gain a buzz in the film festival circuit again, and was getting momentum to be South Korea's first foreign language film nomination. It was the first Korean film to make it onto the Oscar shortlist for four. In language film. And yet it has been shut out at despite a great chilling performance by supporting actress, Yvonne, who's also Asian American was supposed to be kind of the extra boost for this film, but burning is a is not in this category. Unfortunately, shutout. I man, I know this is a film that both a Brad in Jacob. I think we're big fans of is completely shut out of the major categories. Yeah. If you told me a year ago happened, I wouldn't have believed you I think that they can be award winner debut treselle coming off a lot of land making a Neil strong bio pic starring Ryan. Gosling sounds like a recipe for best picture and starting co-starring clarify, but you know, no direct nomination. No picture nomination. No acting nominations as visual effects production design and the technical awards nominated for but it is just been completely left out of the Oscar race. I think this movie wasn't that people thought it was going to be it's a far quieter more meditate. Of movie than your typical, you know, spacefaring bio-pic and never really struck a chord at needed to. I think we actually a little to mix I loved this movie. I think times very kind to it. But seeing it not nominated for anything is deeply strange after I spent pretty much most of last year thinking, it would be a star is born versus I manage showdown the Oscars. Yeah. And we did talk a little bit of a Cold War. This is a kind of a big surprise. It wasn't just nominated for best director. But it also got a bunch of other nominations. Chris. What is going on here? Yeah. It got a nomination for best cinematography, which I don't. I don't think it's that much of his prize. It's because the academy really likes things that are in black and white. It's like they see that. And they're like, oh my God. What is this something in black and white? So. Cold war. Also got a nominated from the American society of cinematographers. I it reminds the old academy voters of their childhood filmmaking filmgoing experience at second day of the talkies when they went to the Nickelodeon, but cold, we're also looks. I mean from what I see in a basement trail looks gorgeous. So I don't think that's too big of a surprise. I think the biggest surprise is never look away, which is a German film and all of us when these nomination would being now's we're like what the hell never look away because I've honestly never heard of this where if I did hear of it. I it slipped my mind completely and yes, so never look away. Like, I said, it's a German film. It got a best cinematography nod so good for you never look away. But stuck about best makeup? There's a couple of surprises here. Jacob. I know you wrote about a all of them on the site your big fit of border in the this. Snubbed on a border was actually nominated fellas nominated sorry. Yeah. And it's like, I the fact that I'm imagining all these stodgy old K members watching border. It makes me happy to is a supernatural romance. It's very very very good and a feature some very very impressive subtle makeup. Let's see actors who are playing let's say non humans in the movie, really a moat and have performances, and in fact, I made and make up against, you know, lots of.

"So I don't really know how this happened. But I'm okay with it. Yeah. So director Pablo hausky earned surprising best director nod which is unusual because the best director category doesn't usually contain to foreign film directors. And here we have. Heloc hausky as well. As off on the Koran, and this is a film that flew under a lot of people's radar even people who are a major snow files because it's you know, it's a black and white a romance period drama and not a lot of people have seen it. But the people who have have raved about it. But hasn't earned any sort of buzz in any case. And yet here it is in one of the top five categories with the the director earning that coveted best director nod shortly this because I feel like this was not in the buzz at all leading up to this awards. Like, I didn't even this wasn't even on my like watchlist for you know, before I was making my top ten of the year. I just didn't this wasn't even on my radar has anybody here seen that film. Nope. I want to because I've heard nothing but good things about it. But I just have not had the time. And i'm. Yeah. And to give you an idea critising almost four hundred films from last year as not seen this film. So that just goes to show you how much of surprise that is but a big snub this year in directing category is there's no female best director nominees fell. If you heard Jacobs rundown of the best director category earlier, you may notice that there are no female directors nominated, and while people may argue that female, filmmakers makers are not doing any awards where the look of work. I beg you to reconsider because I think that this year has had some of the most of visibility for female directors doing great work in the Indy and film festival circuit. You have Lynne Ramsay with the thriller. You're never really hear several brenick for leave. No trace and Marielle Heller for can you ever? Forgive me, which also earned three awesome. For nominations for best actress best supporting actor and best screenplay. And yet she did not earn a best director nomination when she could have easily gotten that fifth slot. There are plenty of others to khloe Zhao for the writer, which was critically acclaimed and was named the best the year's best film by the national study film. Critics and the Gotham film awards Josie work who's married who've Scott's also earned to Oscar nods to marriage hankins private life care into some for destroyer Mamie letter for on the basis of sex. There's so many this sounds like a long list stage. Longlist of ignored. My Critics Circle the Los Angeles online film, Critics Circle we do we do like instead of best record you best male director and best female director, which we kind of got a lot of flack last year. When we introduce that. But I actually I was actually not sure how I felt about it back then, but I actually now kind of loved that. Because I feel like. You know it. Yes. In a best world there should just be one category. Actually in the best world, there shouldn't even be best. Actress best actor I think, but we're not living in the world. We have Trump is president. I I like I almost wish we instead of you know, the kademi considering best popular film as a category. They might consider, you know, breaking up best male director and best female director. So that you if something needs to be done to get the recognition into start turning the tide in my opinion. I what do you think of that? Feelings about providing that category because I do think that if people just looked harder. And actually, we're able to see the film female filmmakers are doing great work that this category would be more evenly balanced, but Greta gerwig was nominated last year, and they've only been five women nominate in total at the Oscars. So maybe it would be worth it at this point..

"Which move onto director Jacob do. You have the list of directors nominated this year. Do I do? Indeed, best director, Spike, Lee, black klansman. Pardon me, polish listeners Poel public hausky Cold War your go slant. The most favorite Affonso Koran Roma and Adam McKay, vice I'm very surprised Ryan cooler did not get an Amish in for Black Panther. I'm almost always apprised when a film gets a best picture nom. But not a best director nomination. Because even though you know, films are the result of two team effort. But the director is the person who's the head of that team. They're they're pushing everything Ford. It's always weird to me when this happens where it's like. Yeah. That film was great. But let's not let's not mention the director. So I'm just I'm a little surprised that if they were going to go all out and nominate Black Panther. Why not I'm Nate Ryan cooler too. Because in Ryan Kugler in his very short career has already proven. He's he's the real deal. He's only made three films so far. But you know there. They've all been like critical raves. So I am a little surprised that he didn't get a nomination and other topic. I always felt it was weird that the producers received the best picture awards and not the filmmaker. I I know that's how it's always been. But like, I don't know it just seems I wanna take like in theory. It's like without them, the movie wouldn't exist because they paid for it. But I always felt that was weird too. I wonder if it's veteran of the the Hollywood classics studio system in which directors were more work calluses were courses than the producers. What else in the best director like Jacob? I know you were talking about Bradley Cooper. Yeah. I think probably Cooper's as glaring his Black Panther and Ryan cougar because you know, stars born it's been one of the front runner favorites for since middle of last year. And the kademi traditionally loves actors turned directors like Robert Redford, and Kevin Costner and all these people like tons of wards moment in actor says I wanted to wrecked and stars warrants. Also good movie and said well directed movie for the most part so him not being here. Even though stars born kgo eight nominations is very strange. It's not like they snug Bradley Cooper, he's nominee for best actor he's nominated for his work on the screenplay and he's producers, so he's so he's nominated for best picture. So he is doing quite well, he has a reason to celebrate today. But Bradley Cooper, not being here is very strange, especially since you know, this is one of the front is one of the big movies. And I think that they're I think there are directors on this list who shouldn't be human Bradley Cooper should be. That's. But you know, what I I guess I'm I'm just shocked that the academy did not see pretending to nominate inactive for directing. Because it's happened so often. Yeah, this is probably one of the biggest snubs for me. Like, I I didn't even love that movie. But like his as his direct to'real debut like it was just so impressive. But at least at least Peter Farley was not nominated in his place. Right. Chris. Yes. This is technically a snub snub. I'm okay with Peter Farley or ferrelli over. It's pronounced he directed green book and green book has been having quite an award season where it's racking up awards. Even though the residents of film Twitter seemed to be outraged at this. And so it's seems like a given that he was going to get this best director nomination, buddy. Didn't. And I don't know if that's because that article came out that revealed in the past he. I would expose himself as a quote unquote joke, but maybe that played apart. And yet at the same time the screenwriter got into a lot of hot water to for his comments, but he got nominated..

"And I'm I'm really thrilled about that. I'm I'm thrilled. They both got that nomination. Because they're boasts so good in the film few twice as I think if you months ago, maybe we would expect to get nominated here. Like, I think the best performance of last year overall was Toni Collette and hereditary and lot of people ACLU's them. Oscar prognosticators were saying she could be a dark horse in the best actress category, but she's not here in. Oh enough. Let's not the biggest prize in the rural. By a lot of people thought, the people love twenty Colette people thought the eight hundred four have a better year than they did at the Oscars. But she's not here. Also, the coal Kevin for destroyer that entire movie's marketing campaign, all of its buzz all everything was built around the Clintons performance and built around. You know, come see her get the performance of a lifetime forms of career. It's an incredible performance. But destroyer it never got the buzz necessary to really push it over the top. So Nicole Kidman was also left out here. But the biggest snub here is probably Emily blunt who had a dual shot. I mean, get nominee for quiet place or getting nominated for Mary Poppins returns, and she got nominated for neither of them in his only only a little bit of love for both those films. And I think that people just thought that you know, that in the year I made it less that the people who had the greatest two thousand eighteen I won't be in the top three maybe number one because of the amount of success. She. Had with proper terms and a quiet place. And did not see you could for either of them in a year. If it was like the year of the blunt. Yeah. It's a very very it was definitely a blunt year.

"And I don't I don't really get it. I guess the movie is just too dark in to, you know, even though it got that best screenplay nomination. I just think it's too challenging too weird for most voters. Interesting Mark Harris on Twitter. It's like how these the? The rate the range nominees here ranging from like really bold surprising choices to like the most mundane Joe his possible at like green book represent the Greg very clear split between all the new members who've been hadn't past few years the old guard in a way that it's very clear the illustrative now that the county is split into two different camps. Speaking of sort of a camps divided in the the academy, I feel like both camps, probably overlooked Hugh Grant or formats in Paddington to a witch because it was in a family film. But in not only one of those family films of last year, but one of the best films of last year, so Hugh Grant gave a just hysterical vanity free performance in Paddington to that. I feel like with so sorely overlooked in the awards discussions despite him earning a BAFTA nomination and even winning London Film Critics Circle awards, but I feel that goodwill towards his form instant seem to. To come survive, the trip across the Atlantic, and he has earned nothing and plus padding to came came out early in two thousand eighteen so it might have gone forgotten during the awards discussions and another one that was was definitely overlooked was Brian Taibbi Henry who actually earned buzz, not one, but two performances in critically acclaimed films this year, a I in widows as a crime boss, and then in built in it feels she could talk as sort of cheery ex-con will them he had sort of minimal screen time. But he left such an impact that fans and critics alike were calling for him to earn a best supporting actor nod for either film. Let's let's talk about actresses. Actually, I'm a little confused here because the Queen from the favorite was nominated for best actress, but wasted stone were Norman nominated for supporting yes, actually, very it's almost tactics. You see very often where there's a on samba cast. And even though technically he people are leads these strategically nominate themselves for supporting this. I mean, if all three anomaly themselves or best actress, you know, maybe one of them have gotten in this way, all three that they would leads got nominated. It's very it. It's a little a sly in probably not ethical about hits. You start to see it more and more often these days off me deserve it. So I'm not too upset about it. Even if the categorization is a little bit long key. Let's talk about what is the biggest surprise in like the like, the female acting categories. Chris. All right. I'm gonna get shit for this because I'm going to mispronounce their names. 'cause I I apologize terribly because I'm dumb American, but you'll eat apprecia- from Roma and also. Marina de Tavira from Roma. And again, I sincerely apologize. If I mispronounce both those names, but they're both phenomenal in Rome, especially the lead. And this was literally her first acting role ever. And but even though they're both really good. I just sort of assumed they wouldn't get it would just be overlooked, maybe because their performances are English. Maybe just maybe assumed academy, which is overlooked them. But they didn't..

"And there was a kind of backlash and the the academy actually took that to heart and the next year. Hey, this caused a lot of trouble in the coming years. Like, I feel like it would probably more bad than good. I don't want to speculate that far, but I know that the next year you can't be bumped their nominations up from five to ten and the at the time, the academy president even said, you know, he said the quote is something like I'd be lying. If I said the dark Knight didn't play decision in this. So, but even with that in mind, it still took another ten years before any comp movie ended up with a best picture nomination. And here we are with lack panther. It took awhile each T what got snubbed in this category. I think the biggest snub that we can say here is if Beale street could talk directed by Barry Jenkins who won two years ago for moonlight for best picture rather? And he was also snubbed in the best director category as well. But this was a film that was critically acclaimed people expected it to be in the contention for best picture, but it ended up. Up not getting very many nominations. I think it got a received only three nominations total for this film, including a best supporting actress for Regina king and a best adapted screenplay. I know you guys didn't have this on your list. But if I was totally awake at this time. I would put spider verse into Spiderman despite averse here. Not that. I anybody thought that it was going to get nominated for best picture like I I don't think even the filmmaker. I don't think anybody was disillusioned in that standpoint. But I really feel like with this many nominations death film should be recognized. Actually, the one thing I want to say that you kind of suggested when we're talking about the backlash to dark Knight. And the expanding of the categories one thing that irked me in the year since is that it never is the same amount of best picture nominations it sometimes ten this year. It was only eight so I feel like they could have just they just. Keep it at ten and include films like into the spider verse. Or if feels streak talk are strong and feel that if Sony had had known that spy with reaction that did if they were aware that it was going to be that tremendous reaction from, you know, regular folks end, critics, I think they would have launched a campaign have gotten, you know, multiple automations in sound score, even even writing possibly bow. These other Stony learned too little too late what they had in their hands. Let's talk about some of the acting categories will start with best actor itchy. What what is the surprise here? So big surprise. A pleasant surprise rather is Willem Defoe for at trinity skate. So this was a performance that was breathtaking for the people who saw it. And he definitely carried this film, which is a little slight as the portraying the legendary Vincent Van Gogh in his final years, and this film, I think is really gorgeous. But it kind of lost a lot of buzz after its release in September. And. While I'm Defoe was great net. He didn't have quite the meant some that other best actor candidates had. But he is great knit. So this was a nice surprise in. It's also his a back nomination for him because he was nominated last year for a supporting actor in the Florida project surprise, Chris who was snubbed here. Sorry. I never thing. Open. Chris who snubbed in this category? Ethan Hawke was snubbed in my opinion. I pretty much saw the writing on the wall at this point because he wasn't getting as much love in the wards leading up to the Oscars either, which really surprised me. But I kept I kept holding out hope because I honestly think this is the best performance he's ever given. I don't I'm not saying that lately because I think he's given a lot of really good performances. He's almost always, you know, one hundred percent in there. He doesn't like he doesn't he never phones performance in. But this was like it felt like the culmination of all of his work, so far it felt like this was it was finally is moment to at least get the nomination, and he didn't..

We'll be is by nomination more about the movie or move, the the moment, the cultural, you know, shifts that represents an either way I think it belongs year. I'm still pleasantly surprised that a a marvel movie be at one that is incredibly smart and rich and textured in storytelling character is here. And that's that's very cool Cressey wrote this feature on the site, basically going chronicling the last ten years, you know, talking about the dark nights. Can you give that a plug? I sure can't so. Yeah, I think everyone at this point. Now is that ten years ago two thousand eight really? Everyone sort of a Sumed the dark. Knight was going to get a best picture nomination.

Golden Globes nominations and the Oscars find a host...for now
"KCRW sponsors include neon presenting vox, Lux, twenty-first-century portrait of Celeste a pop megastar grappling with a tragic past starring Academy Award winner, Natalie Portman and Academy Award nominee, Jude law academy eligible in all categories opens Friday. I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me is Matt Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter, and Matt we have the Golden Globes nominations out today, and I cannot discuss the Golden Globes without once again, noting what the heck are the Golden Globes. I mean, this is a group of foreign press people, and they are not a big group about ninety. I think is how many there are and they have managed, you know, kudos to them to create this gigantic deal around a bunch of reporters, some of them who I think are not even fulltime reporters may not have been published for awhile anywhere that you've even heard of. But whatever they've made it into this huge deal this huge telecast. And even though it has no connection to the academy whatsoever. It is. Deemed to have influence, so I guess we have to talk about. Yeah. And the fact of the matter is the Globes do matter they're an awards body that starts off the season their their nominations are in play during the very important holiday movie going seasons. So they can be influential on box office, and they are an indicator of the Oscar nominations, and I think this year the big winner from the globe. It's gotta be vice the Dick Cheney movie from Adam McKay, which has six nominations to lead the field. Yeah. I mean vices people thought that Christian bale would be nominated for playing Dick Cheney. But I don't think it had been seen in the best picture category. I don't know if it truly influences, but maybe on some unconscious level this attention does influence, so I'll let you have that point. Again. There are some changes. I do think that the Hollywood Foreign Press has tried to do better. There has been a wrap in the past that they snub movies with African American cats that did not happen this year movies that are in the mix. This year are black klansman. From Spike Lee, Black Panther. Of course, the marvel movie, and if Beale street could talk which is based on James Baldwin story. So those movies are in and that's better one thing that has not gotten better. And this was pointed out last year by Natalie Portman and announcing the nominations no women nominees again in the director category. That is unfortunate. I don't think the Academy Awards nominations will likely have any female directors. Either least how it's playing out right now Tamara Jenkins is sort of in the race for the fertility drama private life that she directed for net. Flicks. There is Debra Granik has leave no trace, but that's considered a smaller movie, and Marielle Heller has can you ever forgive me, which is getting more notice for Melissa McCarthy's performance, and she was nominated today as well. Yeah. Of course, there's khloe show with the writer, which just wanna Critics Award in New York. So that I think might be on the academy's potentially. It's a small. Movie, but potentially on the kademi threat. Our TV is where the most controversy happens, you know, things like succession overlooked, which is a very well regarded HBO series, and you know, certain things that don't seem to make sense, but I'm just going to pivot away from that for second to talk briefly about the Academy Awards after a long delay. The academy has come up with a host or ABC for the ABC telecast, Kevin Hart instantly, there are issues on the internet because of homophobic jokes that Kevin Hart had tweeted unfortunate. But it's a very tough job the academy to find a host. And it looks like they may have overlooked something here. Yeah, he certainly popular and has a lot of movies that people love. So we'll see when that they stay with them. Thank you, Matt. Thank you. That's Melanie editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at two o'clock on the business. I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown KCRW sponsors include neon presenting vox Lux at twenty-first-century portrait of Celeste. A pop megastar grab.
