And you're like asking one very very specific question that take several years to get a possible. Answer yeah in addition to having a background in science you also act. Including what am i ve favorite films because i found it. So chilling joker. Yeah favorite experience. Why was it your favorite. I felt like working on that. I was just learning a lot very very quickly. Like for instance. I wasn't supposed to be doing the stunt where i got killed spoiler alert. There was supposed to be a stunt double who got shot and falls and like it is falling on the concrete and crawling and blah. 'cause that's technically stunt. The stunt double shows up to set and he's wearing a different suit than i am and i think technically like you know they didn't know how they would. Maybe they would have to delay day or something like that That's huge amounts of money and inconvenience like you ruin the suits work. There was like a custom sued so it wasn't like they could just like men's warehouse. I was like i can do. This can fall and you know. Do the stunt. I was a child gymnast. Like i know how to do that stuff. Okay yeah i can feel. I just tested this day. I can still do it. Yeah okay then we just try doing. I'm running away from joaquin. And he's firing a gun at me. And i'm like they decided on the day of the like maybe you've already been shot in the like but once and what does that look like. I haven't liked prepped. Running with a bullet in my. But let's try try it and then after after walking comes in like empties the gun into the back of me and runs up the stairs and jed quiet. They'll be they'd yell cut. And then i'd get up and then me and todd and joaquin would go watch playback and be like we'll how did that look that look right. I don't think that's how you'd run if you had a bullet and you're like no i do. That's exactly how it is. And i and i was just felt like i was learning so lightning vast ultimately at the end of it. I felt like it really paid off. And like after i wrapped walking pulled me aside and said some really nice things to me. That was very encouraging awesome. He said hey man.

"One of Hollywood's most respected actors is now an Oscar winner and as a P. entertainment editor us was gable reports his acceptance speech was no joke he may have played the joker but Joaquin Phoenix was deadly serious when he stepped up to the podium to accept his Best Actor academy award he went off on a measured but long rant on several topics including sexism and racism in the movie industry anything fellow Hollywood people for sticking with them through his own struggles confidence grounds all my life I've been selfish I've been cruel at times hard to work with and are you grateful but so many of you in this room have given me a second chance Phoenix added that when people got each other toward redemption it represents the best of humanity I'm Oscar was
"joaquin phoenix" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"A movie about it in the end the doll to do the right thing it's a joke but he's also stayed away from that a lot and so I think that that was kind of just you know his little shot in a lot of people are upset about how political certain things have gotten but that happens in these a whirl they're really upset about it until they want to spout their politics and then they think everybody should be okay with it I didn't think and I thought it was obvious that Joaquin Phoenix won Best Actor for his role as the joker a lot about some of the distressing issues that we are facing collectively and I think at times when we feel or made to feel that we champion different causes but for me I see commonality I think whether we're talking about gender inequality for racism or queer rights or indigenous rights or animal rights were talking of the fight against injustice I like to speech I generally like to speech zero minus a really critical part of it then yeah weird and that is at the cow insemination part yes that part I was a little odd to hear it well I think we have to play it now so yeah he's continues on so a lot of what you just heard there I agree with them yeah and in in he even in closing you know quoted his his late brother right river Phoenix and run to the rescue with love and peace will follow with that's powerful it's really nice but what you you're lost some of the shine of that speech yeah with this we feel entitled to artificially inseminated town and when she gives birth we steal her baby even though her cries of anguish unmistakable and then we take her milk that's intended for a calf and we put it in our coffee and serial okay resting analogy maybe could have told a little bit differently but but Joaquin Phoenix appears to be just is unique interesting.

Parasite's best picture triumph could begin a new era for the Oscars
"For the first time in the history of the Academy Awards a foreign language film has won the Oscar for Best Picture Paris only to south Korean black comedy also won Best Director for bone June hope in the main acting categories there were no real surprises with winds hawking Phoenix and Renee Zellweger but just how significant is parasites achievement just before we came on air I spoke to Tom brook in Hollywood it is seen as a pivotal moment perhaps in the academy's history it speaks to the growing power of international cinema and we have because of the economy has made in the last few years to diverse supply its membership to bring in more international film professionals and this could well be reflected in the results that we got tonight which was parasite winning the Best Picture Best Director best into international feature and best original screenplay yeah it was it was a dominant performance at perhaps a bit of a surprise but in terms of the the main acting Casseres I suppose the win as well the people we expect yes with the actors I mean I I should just back up for moments to say what was great about parasites it was announced that made for exciting viewing because with the acting categories it was very predictable Joaquin Phoenix one for his performance in the film joka Renee Zellweger one the playing Judy Garland and Judy Brad Pitt one for his role in once upon a time in Hollywood his supporting role and Laura Dern one for her supporting role in marriage story and does the fact that in a foreign language film won Best Picture it is that perhaps goes some way to to meet the complaints of those who said it wasn't a very diverse set of nominations perhaps but I I I think that our site was really well light to the piece of cinema it was very adventurous still making so I think it was voted full on those merits in a way and people really light phones you info here in Los Angeles as he was on the awards circuit in the run up to the office he has a very winning personality and so do members of his costs and I think that had a powerful effect on people as well so it may well let's waste some complaints about the lack of enterprise in diversity with the other nominees and briefly that was a bit of politics in in some of the acceptance speeches yes read it made a reference to the fact that John Bolton wasn't allowed to testify last week in the Senate impeachment hearings and Joaquin Phoenix made an impassioned political speech about human beings not exploiting one and all that indigenous people and the universe our correspondent Tom Burke took me from the red carpet outside the award ceremony in Los

Oscars 2020: who will have the biggest night?
"Are the Oscars are this weekend who are you rooting for anybody on your list I like once upon a time in Hollywood I just thought that was a great film I love the cast awesome stuff several nominations for that film bills worker is joining us now long time energy reporter for the sun times still with five Chicago is a contributor and bill has followed many many many Oscars lot but you know I always loved about you bill you you follow the local entertainment scene so well and always told us such interesting nuggets about what was going on here well that's true I've always loved you know I mean I think that's important I think it as we all know how they moved in this world of of the current the twenty first century media I think local local local is the way to cope in general because I think that's what people really want to get because they can get you know the national stories from other outlets but but this is an interesting year at all well it's always interesting with the Academy Awards although I do think in certain categories is here there's there's some things that are pretty well said but I know we think of course they're going to go again this year without it without a without a whole list which I don't think it's a terrible thing I think you know well I'll tell you why I think so often unless you get somebody like Billy crystal who's always knocks the you know the ball out of the park I think over the years I think will be colder did a good job we recently had our critic's guide Bible to the critics choice awards which of the broadcast broadcast critics and you know we had two days he did a wonderful job and I think because he didn't try to overdo it you know came out was charming and didn't you know try to be too cute but I think sometimes I think people want to see who's going to win they want to see the presenters I don't think they want a lot of big production numbers and all those give me some wonderful musical numbers at the Oscars you know your health Elton John performing in and you know it's gonna be really quite quite wonderful in the court system the result of a few people who really are talented musically but it's gonna be interesting to see what happens on Sunday I can say I disagree too but I'd like the host I guess you're right but what okay what is a good host was a good house because right some of the host I kind of remember the Anne Hathaway that was a disaster and as much as I loved you know but she yeah I do too but she what that wasn't right for her at all and James Franco I think the the combo wasn't right and that yeah then they tried to do so many acts that an already long ceremony got longer and longer right letterman was not successful either you know so I mean and and I love him but I mean I just it's just a very tough job I will say that so I think sometimes a safe way to go is with out the host and we'll see how it goes David Letterman wasn't wanted the Oprah uma uma Oprah right rumors were rolling their eyes he's like I got to go and I got a key thing is we we didn't work we actually have some audio here from Billy crystal because he was just on Jimmy Kimmel okay crystal has hosted the Oscars I think nine times total nine times jingle himself is hosted the Oscars twice yes yeah he did a good job he did so the two of them had thoughts about the hostess Oscars here's here's what they had to say I always loved being out there I I loved the guess the trusts you know that the movie academy had a made to to get me out that I always I felt like there was a great honor to do it and I think that when you have a show that's as long as it is is going to happen and I think the problem with the no hosting perhaps is that there's not somebody out there to capitalize on that moment ledge view had when the wrong Best Picture right who could forget that the one that's right but he does make a good point there he does make a good point that you can can bring it into the moment and and capitalize on it that is a very good point I hadn't thought of that someone says something that you can sort of have fun with right that just sort of right out there and then they bring it back and make everybody sort of laugher connect over that moment we just had a listener say six three oh what about the la la land fiasco that would be weird without a host because sort of look at each other like what that would that would have been terrible and and then on a lighter note I mean it's great when you have somebody you know when when Jack Palance remember that the one arm push up you know on the sages many years ago and of course and you know Billy came out and made a great joke about it because you know those are the things that you love love to see happen yeah my favorite also I think was on my list of favorites I should say Ellen DeGeneres remember that a normal than the selfie she took and then when she was busting Steven Spielberg around a telephone tell take the picture you know when I could change my point of view you're either going to go maybe on your side your honor but you know I heard you it coming in when you talk about once upon a time in Hollywood that really was one of my favorite favorite movies of the year I see like bill if this one is sort of got a little bit of an unfair advantage because it seems like one of those movies that people in the industry natural sort of are drawn to because it has history of historical factor I know it's sort of a bag I would love to see it with but it's it's one of my favorite but I think all of the momentum seems to be from the directors guild of the producers guild all of the different wards have been happened sounds like it's going to be nineteen seventeen which I liked very much but technically it had some incredible you know incredible beautiful moments but my favorite if I was going to pick one it would be once upon a time in Hollywood or parasite which of course is going to win trust me it's gonna win best foreign film the people that are further further Oscar parties if they want to fill out there if you get if you get some of those lesser known categories right you can win the Oscar Poole I've no I bet it's true that's a good strategy that's true yes I have eight one five Oscars praying for no politics I need a break yeah what do you think we all do I think we all do and I think that will be that's one thing that I hope we do have because I think after what we've all gone through in this country in the last few weeks I think yes no politics is a very good suggestion but it's interesting because in terms of all the acting categories I think they're pretty well locked into a whole I think it is going to win and I think most people do what do you think what you got for best supporting actress I think well that's what the one category where there could be a surprise in the usually is a surprise the one category excuse me would be best supporting actress because even though most people think it's gonna be Laura Dern was terrific as a divorce lawyer in marriage story you know who could possibly slip in there because he has won a few things as far as people from little women who played one of the daughters and that's one category but I do think it's gonna be Laura Dern for best Supporting Actor it's Brad Pitt as one everything is beloved by many people in Hollywood you know it's sort of his his year in his time and I think that's a pretty much of a lock in for Best Actress it's it's I think pretty much going to be Renee Zellweger for Judy plank Judy Garland and although I would look I would be disappointed if there was a real real upset here in Jersey ronin from little women one because I think she's terrific but they're all these categories have great nominees and of course for Best Actor again it's probably going to be Joaquin Phoenix because again he won everything so far incredible performance I didn't see G. R. A. Renee Zellweger in Judy but I didn't know that that was not universally loved by critics no it was not what happened there was everybody pretty much loved her I mean I agree with this the movie itself was just sort of you know just so so I think the reason she's basically the nominee the only nominee for that movie there may be a cost and it might be a minor on the minor categories I shouldn't call minor but one of the most popular categories but the movie itself was not great she was what made the movie yeah I you know I I didn't see that because of sort of the reviews the main one that would be worth revisiting because I loved her and that was the online series where she was the rich woman who is trying to convince people a little comes of age is he was a recent series streaming and she was phenomenal and I just remember and she sings herself I mean the fact that she you know somebody's like a voice like garland which everybody knows so well the fact that you do your own singing I think is also a major push any and there's so many scenes in this movie you look and you think it's actually Judy Garland on stage and screen excuse me so I think it's and that's pretty much of a lock but there again you know you never that's pictures that that was one I mean I think it's probably going to be nineteen seventeen but I would be happy with virtually any of those you know that are up there there's nine nominees you know because they changed the rules a few years ago but you know a lot of talk this year the parasite which definitely is gonna win best foreign film it might be the first year that the best foreign film also wins Best Picture that would be somewhat of an upset but that would be a fascinating thing to see what is the Netflix series that Renee Zellweger was and I was trying to remember to remember bill out we only have a minute here but if you if you are going to the movies this weekend as I know some people do when they try to say Hey I'm gonna catch up on some of these Oscar nominated films what what was one of the films you would suggest the probably not many people have gone to I think I don't know I think first of all I think you know probably nineteen seventeen I think it's it's a kind of a tough movie to watch many ways but I think that that that seems to be the front runner for Best Picture if you haven't seen once upon a time in Hollywood definitely catch that and I'll tell you a parasite is be the third one because that is such it's got a real twist to it I can't tell you much and I would give it away but it that would be the film that is probably the one most unique dark comedy that come down the pike in a long time okay you got my attention on that I'm gonna check that one out bills record thank you so much for checking in with us at any time good to hear your voice same

Oscars 2020 Preview
"HI everybody. It's Peter Travers. Here here with this special edition of Popcorn which we're calling the Oscar popcorn because this weekend on February ninth exactly everybody will be watching. Being the Oscar telecast on ABC and probably having their own little ballot. Like I have here trying to figure out who's going to win this damn thing and if the person I don't like winds pushed I put my money on. That's what really happens. That's what people ask me on the street. So I'm GonNa take you through these main categories and and we'll see what will win what should win and we can argue. You can find me somewhere and we can argue about it. But I'm going to start with with best supporting actress. Because that's how the Academy Awards those that's always the first award that we say Kathy Bates in Richard Jewel. Laura dern in marriage in story Scarlett Johansson in Joe Rabbit Florence Pew in Little Women and Margot Robbie in bombshell so look. There's it's a lot of good people here and I have to say right at the outset. That Scarlett Johansson is one of those rare actors that has a nomination as best actress. Chris and best supporting actress marriage story for Best Actress in here supporting which usually gets you to win one and that usually that it's usually that one but it's it's not going to happen you know I'm sitting here saying did I read wrong. What happened to Jennifer Lopez and hustlers? Hasn't she been in this game since the release Lisa Hustler she has and yet the academy you bad people have decided that J.. Lo just wasn't Oscar material while you're wrong but look we we have to deal with rats here and I'm going to say that the person who will win in this category is also the person who should win. And that is Laura Burn and Laura dern in marriage story plays a divorce lawyer and she's a tough one and let's think of all the Hollywood people that are voting for this award and how every single one of them I'll wager. A BET has their own divorce lawyer and has been through this process. Maybe more than once. Maybe two we're three times to do it. And they find Laura Dern Dunn's in this movie something spectacular it's also one of the few awards. I think that marriage story story is going to win. But Laura Dern has never won an Oscar. This will be her first time. Everyone loves her. We all love and big little lies and I think this is her time on so let her have it all right. I'm moving onto best supporting actor. Tom Hanks in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins in the two popes Al Al Pacino in the Irishman Joe Pesci in the Irishman and Brad Pitt in once upon a time in Hollywood. Look you're talking to a big Irishman fan here so if it was me saying come up for the gold it would be Joe. Patchy I know Joe Pesci doesn't do any publicity. He basically sticks fix to himself. He's probably tough guy in real life as the gangster that he plays in the Irishman but that performance is amazing and won won his first Oscar for another score says he movie goodfellas where he was the most scary gangster. You can see here. He's kind of quiet dawn. So if I'm I'm giving them it would be Joe Patchy but the academy is giving this award and no one. No one can win. This except Brad Pitt. These other people here Tom Hanks Anthony Hopkins Al Pacino and Peci all have won Oscars so they already have the gold. Do you realize his full career. Brad Brad Pitt has never won an academy award game over people. This is it Brad. You're going to get in once upon a time in Hollywood playing a stuntman. It man playing somebody who's been around the business. I think it's irresistible for Hollywood to say I'm going to reject one of my own. Plus he was great in the movie. You seem to hear my voice that I have a little bit of a problem. Yeah I do. Because that's not a supporting performance at all that his part is the equal who of his Co Star Leonardo DiCaprio's WHO's nominated for best actor. So why is he in that category. I think they want to win. And Brad you might as well prepare repair your speech right now okay. I am now moving onto best actress. Cynthia Haribo in Harriet Scarlett Johansson in marriage story. Sir Sharon in little women. Charlie's Sharon in bombshell and Renee Zellweger in Judy. What Best S. actress award so far from the Golden Globes to the critics choice awards has it Renee Zellweger one? She's won all of them. So is there any possibility ability here for something else. I mean. Look what Charlie. Stern did in bombshell. She not only plays Megan Kelly. The makeup geniuses have made her look exactly exactly like her and Charlie's has talked exactly like are they love bio pics there so she should be really strong. Social Ronin is like twenty five years old. She's he's on her fourth Oscar nomination. This is incredible and Scarlett Johansson. Like I said nominated for best. Supporting actress and Best Actress. Cynthia revolt is playing Harry Tubman and she also wrote the song from the movie which is nominated. That happened to somebody last year. Didn't it yes it was lady. Eating Gaga Lady Gaga was nominated for writing that wonderful song from stars born and his best actress. But what did you win. She won best song and that was it so I have to say that again. I would give this award person late to search for Ronin just because I think to be that young and to be that consistently brilliant is amazing and her performance in little women. Is that good. But it's Rene as I talk about. How Hollywood would love bio-pics this is? Judy Garland that she's playing judy. This is one of their own. Did they ever give. Judy Garland her own Oscar Competitive Competitive Acting Oscar. Never and I think for that reason not only will renee Zellweger win best actress but she will win for Oscar. Judy Garland on never had. It's their way of saying Judy. We love you. We were so stupid not to give it to you. And we're going to give it to Rene in honor of you. This is how Hollywood works. It's really crazy. But if you're betting on this you have to bet crazy. Aright best actor Antonio Banderas in pain and gory. Leonardo di Caprio in once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver in marriage story what came Phoenix and joker and Jonathan Pryce in the two popes. I look at this category and before I get into. Who Will Win and who should win? I've I've got to say academy what you have against Comedians. And what do you have against Eddie Murphy. That he's not nominated for Dole. Might as my name what you have against Adam Sandler who proved his dramatic chops in uncut gems. Like nobody can believe and yet they have it they only like to give Oscars to actors serious actors who played comic roles. Ause they hate anybody who's making a living as a comic to actually win this war so this year's been going along I've had this feeling that this was Adam drivers to lose that performance in marriage story is one of the best things he's ever done or that I've seen this year and yet there's this other guy and who's that other guy he's Joaquin Phoenix plane joker. Sometimes there's that kind of performance sometimes. There's there's one that just so dominates the screen. That is such an act of immersion of from an actor in a raw. Yeah Joaquin was scary. He was sometimes funny. He was always touching even though he's playing somebody who's totally out of his mind and a lot of this movie his in his mind. What Cain has been nominated several times before and never one Joaquin? This is yours. I can't believe any set of circumstances. Stances if you WANNA bet the whole house on something and somebody to win it's going to be Joaquin Phoenix as best actor for joker game over all right. We're ready now to move on. I'm going to best director now. This is one of the most exciting categories because these people will these particular men and save and because Hollywood as wont of decided that even though there were more women directing movies than ever before four last year. They couldn't find any to nominate which is of course absurd because Greta Gerwig directed little women which is nominated as best picture and they. I thought no I'm just GONNA do five men like we always do what happened. You people sort of learned a couple of years ago when you nominated Greta. GERWIG quick for Ladybird didn't give it to her. But you nominated her. The KADEMI is ninety two years old. Now how many women has given an academy award for directing one. And that's Kathryn Bigelow for hurt locker. Ninety two years one award hang your head in shame name anyway not knocking any of these men that did get nominated. But there's one in there that I would sacrifice for Greta Gerwig but you you try to guess who that is anyway. Here they are. Martin Scorsese the Irishman Todd Phillips. For Joker Sam Mendes for nine thousand nine hundred Seventeen Quentin Tarantino eighteen. O for once upon a time in Hollywood and Bung June hope for parasite every one of these guys you can make a case for. Martin Scorsese Z.. To me is a master the grandmaster who only has one Oscar for directing and then the Irishman is doing some of his best work. Ever Quentin Tarantino. Not No with once upon a time in Hollywood is also a peak form and yet I'm saying this category is going to between two other the directors one of them being the South Korean Vong June Hall for parasite a Foreign Language Film. That seems to have got everybody excited about what's possible and then Sam Mendes for nine hundred seventeen a world war one movie that is constructed to look like it was done in in one continuous. Take how do you resist that. You don't even though I think they would really like to give their best director award worked. Bon John. How it's going to be for Sam Mendes for creating a war movie like no war movie we've ever seen before so sam I think think it's yours but if you're getting out there and you WanNa go to Bung Jun Ho? You know you might do it because there's always a surprise in these contests we can't go. Oh by what the odds are we have to go by sometimes the academy saying I have an instinct for this. I have a feeling this is the right way to go all right last category. Are we ready best picture of the year Ford versus Ferrari the Irishman Joe. Joe Rabbit Joker her little women marriage story nineteen seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite here is is the one you know every year I do this. It's between one or two movies this year. I can't reduce anything to to the Irishman my estimation a classic one for the ages. Martin Scorsese. Ed Is Best Robert De Niro Pacino. Joe Patchy making a mob movie about old-age age about the end of a mobster. This is the punishment that they get for the lives they live. There's nobody in their lives there alone. It's a tragedy Quentin went and Tarintino. Once upon a time in Hollywood is writing about Hollywood in the sixties and about a time that he thought was the last creative burst of Hollywood Hollywood and doing that. Nineteen seventeen again the World War One movie shot to make it look like. It's one continue steak and parasite a movie about a Korean Rian family in which they exploited the people they work for and then are exploited by the people working for them it is a classic. These are four incredible classics. So what am I gonNA do. What am I going to tell you? What's out there that you have to say? This is the winner and I'm going to go with with all excuses. No excuses in fact to my love for the Irishman. But I think this is the year of Quentin Tarantino. I I think once upon a time in Hollywood being a love letter to Hollywood and being voted on by people who live and work in Hollywood Quentin Tarantino despite right brilliant work with pulp fiction inglorious bastards reservoir dogs Django unchained has never won a Best Picture Oscar or a best director Oscar. Never it's never happened. What better time than now? When he saying Hollywood I love you? I think it's time Hollywood to say to Quentin Tarantino. I love you back back. So you've got it watch the show and afterwards we'll have a discussion.
'Parasite' winning best picture would make movies richer
"So the nine best picture nominees are of Ford. Vive Ferrari affordably. Ferrari is Christian Bale and Matt Damon in the story of Ford trying to build a car to beat Ferrari in the lemond race The Irishman when is the Martin Scorsese Film. which is on Netflix? That you might have heard. It's three hours long. Gioja Rabbit is TYCO I. T's story about a World War Two to that is the one with the where he plays a an imaginary Hitler. If you've heard a joker of course Joaquin Phoenix as the comic book character. Sort of little women which is little women you know Little Women Louisa May alcott and book adapted by Greta. GERWIG marriage story which is Noah Baumbach. Big divorce film with Adam driver and also Scarlett Johansson nineteen seventeen which is about two young men in World War One cent. On a very dangerous mission started by Sam Mendez once upon a time in Hollywood Hollywood. Is Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio in Quentin Tarantino's story about the Hollywood of the very late nineteen sixties and parasite which is Bongino Jin. Ho's Really Fascinating story about two families who come together in a very unexpected way Glenn Gimme a quick will win. Should win on best picture. I'd be happiest with parasite movie that just gets better and better. The more you think about it I'd be okay with little women or once upon a time like movies I'd be a little disappointed if it was Ford versus Ferrari for reasons you can hear more about in the full episode and if it is the joker I'll scream into a pillow Because I kinda hated that movie the oddsmakers have nineteen seventeen winning which is surprising to me. Because I like that movie but the best picture of the year really. It's Oscars sensitive from war movie and it's kind of a traditional Hollywood movie in some ways but then at the same time. It has the kind of showy element of having the you know. Made to look like one shot. I I will just go next and say I would pick parasite and you know. I'm going to stick with will win parasite because the last time. I had a tingling feeling that it was going to being upset. It was moonlight backed off at the last minute. So did the telecom. I robbed myself of an opportunity to look smarter than I am. So I'm going to say will win. Parasites should win parasite. I'm okay with nineteen seventeen. I think there is some lovely filmmaking there. I admire fire the accomplishment of it Bob. What do you think will win and should win? I think one thousand nine hundred will win because it's just everything seems to be driving that way it didn't start out that way. What's interesting sting is at the front runners? Initially were supposed to be Once upon a time in Hollywood and the two from from net flicks Irish marriage. I'm sorry Mayor Story and those have kind of disappeared from the conversation. I think it's safe to say none of those have a real strong shot anymore. I would love to see parasite win. Yeah Stephen Anything. I'm in somewhat of the same boat. I would be thrilled of parasite one I would be thrilled if a little women one. I love that movie so so much. I went on record in our resolutions and predictions show. I predicted addicted. That once upon a time in Hollywood was going to win best picture. It seemed like everything was coming together for The Oscars love movies about the magic of movie. Making it is is a movie about old Hollywood. You know who else is old Hollywood. Everyone who votes for the and so I felt so much like and also Quentin Tarantino. Not No he is an Oscars favourite but he typically get's nudged over two screenplay and then doesn't win best picture best director so I really felt like he had an enormous amount of momentum going going in but I agree that nine hundred seventeen seems to have kind of swooped in and picked it up and I. I really liked that movie a lot. I admire that movie a lot. I would be perfectly content content and satisfied to have it win best picture but this time next year it will take me thirty to forty five seconds to remember what won best picture unless it's parasite unless it's it's parasites will be talking about it for decades. Well I think I wrote about this a little bit if you subscribe to our newsletter which is at NPR dot org slash pop culture newsletter. I wrote about this last week but I do think there's a chance that will be parasite partly because the opening up of the best picture category. which originally was talked about as a way to bring? In kind of popular blockbusters that are also of quality. Got A lot of talk about the dark knight and things like that but it's actually done is bring in more smaller films and foreign right language films so eventually it's GonNa Happen. That one of them is GonNa win. Might as well be this one. I think it might be this year. I think people just like that movie. Yeah and the fact that the US preferential voting for this cat this particular story. COMP look it's way too complicated to get into here but basically what it means is if people liked parasite recite for example enough to what it number one number two or number three. It's got a better than average chance or second. Choices have a have a better than average less polarizing films. Do you better than the ones that everybody likes. Even if it's not their favorite
‘Joker’ review: There’s nothing funny about this very dark origin story starring Joaquin Phoenix
"Watched the joker this past weekend. I hated it. Oh Wow it. It was so dark it was so gruesome. I didn't expect it to be fun. Joaquin Phoenix is phenomenal. He's going to win every award. I'm sure he's probably one every award that he's been nominated for he's brilliant but has the movie goes. I guess it works but it just wasn't really for me. It's a little too dark and very disturbing movie. I mean I guess well done. The Dark Knight was really dark to know this is this is more real much more gritty and I love the Dark Knight. That's dark movie. I'll I'll give you that. Dark movie. Loved it this is so dark. I didn't like it good performances. Not My favorite movie
Did the Academy just leak Oscar winners’ list? Twitter users confused
"I want to tell you and okay I got to tell you about the Oscars really quick internet all I'll tell you just the the quick version of the story so currently the Oscars we're trying to encourage people with this tweet about how do I put this the headline is they accidentally posted their own Oscar predictions all and this came after they were releasing a tool for fans to treat their best guesses so what they were doing was showing how it worked and in order to show how it worked the academy tweeted out a photo that read my Oscar predictions with picks for all the major categories there picks include but the all the standards like Joaquin Phoenix Best Actor Renee for Best Actress tipped for Supporting Actor Laura Dern Supporting Actor as Sam Mendes Best Director parasite Best Picture which is how we expect it to go but fans thought that the academy had leaked to the winners righ hall could you imagine the organization deleted the tweet and issued an apology and they they wrote a brief issue on Twitter made some of yours look like they came from our account they did end the error is now resolved will reveal our picks on Sunday all I know what they're trying to say here because so these predictions with in the academy that's what it looks like they're saying no these were your predictions interesting maybe they're saving face and those were the that's what I think maybe we should print it out and see you know if you went through a checklist be that what they are the winners well they probably are the way we should hang on to that let me well and go through and maybe see how accurate was in that office could you have bad I think that I think there's something to this they're saying that some people are saying no they tweeted people's predictions to take the the DM thing and then other people are mad they're going people bet on this stuff is really the result I'm headed to the pay window it out all my goodness that would be that it would just wrecked the whole night I am very entertaining to watch though somebody said it's worse than announcing the wrong winner so I'm gonna keep this link you should you should yeah print that out for some homework I mean honestly does do look like cool we're expecting to win yeah so we'll we'll find out we'll keep you up to date on that we
Oscar Picks of Wesley Morris from The New York Times
"Wesley Morris is here. Sometimes we fly him out. And we just put you on a whole bunch of podcasts. And we just wind you up and you go yeah Ping Pong Pinball pinball Wesley Yeah Oscars this this weekend yes I can never get through Oscars week without talking to you for at least ten minutes on what's going on. I'm not sure what happened to the Oscars because we have all these prohibitive favorites. There's no drama at all. Everyone thinks nineteen seventeen gonNA win. Isn't that wild. Everyone thinks Phoenix is GonNa win for the joker. Okay yeah that Renee Zellweger is GonNa win for Judy. which I five saying? No no no it made money Brad Pitt for once upon a time And then Laura dern for marriage story yes and those are Kinda done y- everyone the the. They're like huge huge favorites. It doesn't even make sense to bet on them. They're such huge favorites. You'd be like betting on. I don't know the the though Oklahoma City Thunder to beat some division. Three Kinda odd you the only one. That's kind of even best director. Sam Mendes as twenty five favorite. That's what is happening. Is it just. The Internet has made this that the consensus the census of thought now nobody goes against the grain and they just kind of follow the pack. What's happening here? I don't know I think I really feel like increasingly. There are just enough people. I don't know how voters individually or feeling about not pressure to pick a certain person person but the like doing the work to really choose the thing you love the most because every year you read those blind items that variety are Hollywood reporter daily beast. I do yeah And you read these Oscar voters say things and they all have. They all seem to have individual taste rate to hear these. I voters justify why they're voting. They're voting for you. You would think anything could win but that never happens will rarely happens right so I also also believe that in this particular year. I think there's a lot of politics going on like like movie. Industry politics rang. Explain plan so I don't think that people. I think there's a number of things happening. I think people don't like parasite that much. I think they see it. I think that was that was okay. I don't know how they could think that it actually got. It's like Robert Covington right now the NBA trade deadline. It's gotten hyped up too much now. People going wait a secondly. I think it's great it's awesome you're going to see it and you you end up going and you're like yeah it's good but you're not like Oh my God you're right I'm blown away. Yeah Yeah I can't speak but some people are leaving matt a Lake Nona. Nope they're leaving. They're probably just watching it at home but like they're they're watching this movie and they're just Kinda like well okay. I and I'm rich people poor people and I think that I mean I really think that they think it's that simple and I also think good. I really liked it. I didn't think it was like the best picture picture the year I why do but you do really. I was the case in a minute. I think it's just okay. The very simple thing is it takes a story. It takes an idea that I can't believe that in a hundred and you know twenty years of movies. Nobody's ever done before nobody's ever fought to turn the class. Divide into into a game in this particular way. Yeah and by the time they get to the sect by the time the father other by the time the father gets the job. So the third the third introduction of the the glomming onto this family. I'm just I was just laughing. I was is laughing with happiness at the brilliant to this idea. He's such a great of these nine movies and most like almost all of them are perfectly made. I would say that's the one that surprised me the most in terms of how tight and smart and and surprising it was the one thing I don't like goodbye it is the ending but in talking to people about who also sort of ending is anticlimactic but it also needs to be there none. Nobody could come up with a better trending. So this is the endings. Movie needs to have this elegiac sort of tragic fantasy ending. I liked once upon a time. The most I mean and as you know I also love them. We did a podcast about that on this podcast. Back in August we wait. Let's go back though we dated Rewatch ables. That's coming this week about about it already. Yeah well we do one Oscar movie every year O- of the nine area to get out on time. That seems fair. Yeah UH-HUH I think forward and for our versus Ferrari of those nine movies. That in little women I think are the most those are going to prove to be the most re watchable bowl of those. I'm so glad you said that. I feel like those have become the underrated. I'm not sure what happened. In each case moves. I thought little women was excellent. Women Soak so good the crazy thing about this year. Is there a two stores. I just wrote a story about this for the paper and the the the maddening thing about these nine movies please. And I'll get back to the into back to what people are saying about who they are. Why nine hundred seventeen is going to win for political reasons Movie movie industry political reasons. But I just read a piece about like how. This is the first year since they expanded the field ten. Move to up to ten movies that I have liked every single one of these movies more or less except for one and I don't like joker either. Yeah I don't like never really really align this year on what we didn't like I like that I didn't. I don't like joker I didn't have fun. I thought his performance was awesome. But I've seen a lot of movies that whereas the performance was awesome. But I'd necessarily loved the movie right I don't even I don't even Joaquin. Phoenix is one of my four favourite male actors. And this does not I feel like this is the first time he is looking for a character as like we are watching him do work mark. The I think it's done before you start shooting in this movie Part of it is. He is playing a person who's changing but he's always playing people who were undergoing some sort of ecological little change wasn't he's so much more interesting in the master. Oh everything he was doing. If you're going to start there then I'm like why did you give just give Antonio Banderas the Oscar. I mean that's where you're GONNA start but I'm saying like I don't know why I took this movie for people to like. Here's his Oscar. Movie when he was so good the pastor I mean the thing that was more interesting performance interesting thing that we should talk about. Is that like he is one of those people were. He's just a person who is owed right like it's he's been he's a set of a woman quote suffered so long just give him just give it to him not that he's begging for it because because when he took this part I was like oh well you know he clearly. He clearly understands with businesses going and I would never accuse him ever of like being being interested in getting any prizes for the work. He's doing but I also feel like there is a sense that he's been nominated three other times. I think maybe maybe four do you remember how lost to the master who who when they're You're talking keep your point going on anyway. I feel like if I sat here and thought about it. I'd come my with but I'm not going to remember those thirteen Two thousand thirteen. So we have. Is that Matthew mcconaughey. Now it's not McConnell. Now he lost a Daniel Day. Lewis Link Oh well that's that's just bad luck for Joaquin Phoenix. I remember having issue with that at the time you should have. I mean just just as a matter of history you should rostker you blaspheme. He's fine. He's fine I thought Athletes Ship
"joaquin phoenix" Discussed on The Breakdown with Shaun King
"It is election day and you may say well. It's not election day in your state. Because if you're listening to this podcast the odds are are you are not from Iowa because most voters are not from Iowa but I will votes I in the Democratic primaries and today is the day February third where organizers and activists and volunteers from all over the country have been working many for for nearly a year and as all of you know I'm a huge supporter of Bernie Sanders. I'll I'll be with Bernie and the campaign tomorrow. All in New Hampshire speaking all over the state. And we'll have a big event in New Hampshire tomorrow night. But I want to say that I am proud of love. So many particularly young people who put their entire lives on hold for all types of campaigns including many That are yeah no longer in the race that have been working for so long and they fought to get here to this moment and I am doubly proud of all of them who fought for democracy. Who are fighting for progressive values and ideas? I think today is going to be a historic day. It's going to be an I've said this in so many ways is going to be hard to defeat Donald Trump. I I believe that in my bone side I believed it in Twenty fifteen in two thousand sixteen that he was deeply. Formidable Bernie believed it and anybody who saw the rise in what we call populism and saw the energy behind Donald trump critique it of of course we should critique it but also acknowledge it. Donald Trump won thirty states in great part because of the the wave of energy that swept him into office. There's a clip. I'M GONNA play it for you. Hopefully tomorrow I wish I had time to give it to you today. There's a powerful will clip of the comedian. Dave Chapelle talking about when he went out to vote for Barack Obama in two thousand eight. Now they were the line's wrapped around the corner corner and Dave Chapelle lives in rural Ohio and Lives on a farm in rural Ohio. And he talked about how when he went out to vote in in two thousand and eight where you had to wait forever and ever because everybody was out to vote for Barack Obama and he said when he went out to vote in two thousand sixteen any city he knew we were in trouble and he wasn't he wasn't even joking he said I they were pickup trucks everywhere and he said right away. I knew we were in trouble. And he said the lines that existed for Barack Obama in two thousand and eight in that same county. They were there for Donald Trump. And it's going to take that type of energy and effort to defeat Donald Trump. And I think what you're going to see today in Iowa all over the state. I think you're going going to see a record breaking turnout as people show up in numbers like they've never shown before in Iowa I I believe Donald Trump can be defeated in Iowa. First and foremost. But you're going to see people show up you're GONNA see a first time. Voters non-voters Republican Crossover voters independent voters. Show up today to get this process kicked off as we prepare to defeat Donald trump. It's a huge moment and I'm glad we're here But I need us to understand that they are going to throw everything thing but the kitchen sink to defeat this process that Republicans don't fight fair and the only way we defeat. Republicans in two thousand twenty is showing up in such huge numbers. That we can't be stopped and it's going to have to happen not just in Iowa. But all over the country where we break records where people who've been disengaged from politics because they think it has nothing to do with them where everybody shows up because they understand that this is what is going to take to defeat this man and so I'm going to be following and super closely all day today all night tonight. I'm leaving for New Hampshire early in the morning and I'll I'll I'll how try to record early early in the morning tomorrow so that I can talk to you about what happens later today but I'm excited and I'm I'm nervous you know. Obviously because I'm I'm hoping that Bernie Sanders wins this race. But I know that we've put in work I know. The volunteers and organizers have done everything they can possibly do to get us this far and so all we can do is push all we can do is knock on doors make more phone calls engage more voters be better. Do Better fight harder and then just believe that when the chips fall where they made that they will fall on our side. Listen and I have a a clip that I wanNA play for you from walking Phoenix. It was something that he said last night in the UK. And I'M GONNA play it for you right after the break break break up breaks breaks breaks down. I feel very very honored and privileged to be here tonight in. Baptism always been very supportive of my career. And I'm deeply appreciative. Should've but I have to say that. I also feel Conflicted because so many of my fellow actors deserving don't have that same privilege I think that we send a very clear message to people of Color that you're not welcome here. I think that's the message that we're sending to people that have contributed so much to our medium and our industry and in ways that we benefit from. I don't think anybody wants a handout or preferential treatment. Although that's would we give ourselves every year. I think that people just want to be acknowledged and appreciated and respected for their work. This is not a self righteous condemnation. Because I'm ashamed to say that I'm part of the problem. I have not done everything in my power to ensure that the sets I work on or inclusive but I think that it's more than just having senator multicultural. I think that we have to really do the hard work to to truly understand systemic racism. I think that it is the allegation of the people that have created and perpetuate and benefit from a system of oppression to be the ones that dismantle it. So that's on us. You know it's not often that we are surprised with beautiful moments of anti-racism you know almost daily some racist moment barges into our lives where we are disappointed where. We are appalled more. We are infuriated variated because of some incident of of racism that just forces itself right into our world but it's not very often that a moment that a beautiful transparent moment of anti-racism of someone using their you're white privilege. It's not every day that we get to see such moments and this was a beautiful brave moment almond for Joaquin Phoenix. And and I have to say this. It is not easy in this society that expects specs white people to just live as if racism doesn't really exist in just plow ahead day in and day out. It's not easy to stop everything and say I know I just received this award and and Joaquin Phoenix is on stage. It's it's basically the British version of the Oscars and everybody's there the WHO's who everybody's there and he just wins an award for his role in in joker and and says listen. Listen I'm in. I'm embarrassed that in this category and in in this whole award show basically that there are dr no people of color no black folk nominated in these roles and insist embarrassing and and then he says what I love that that I need all of you to get. He says listen. It's it's those of us who have benefited from this system that have to dismantle it and the audience looks very very uncomfortable and when he finally leaves and listen using your or white privilege is going to make people uncomfortable and it's so rare that people are going to be shocked when you do it and when he leaves the the stage there. Is this uncomfortable moment of silence that I found so beautiful where everybody is just left there to thank in ponder in shock because in a moment where white privilege rained he just barged right into it and I'm friends with several members of his family and listen they were raised differently.

"When he's joker that were kind of glorifying him at some ways in these seems like you know kind of cool in a way For lack of better word but it wasn't the way that it was written when he goes on the Murray. Franklin show was like a bumbling fool and something else took over when we went to shoot that. I don't really know how to explain it. I don't think todd does and it was our intention but you just follow something right you sit down to write a song you both play music and write. You have your idea of what it's GonNa be but at some point you're just in the flow and it becomes something else so some of those criticisms May. Maybe maybe it's maybe it's fair but it's not really sometimes not a well thought out designed idea. Sometimes you're just in the moment you're reacting to something thing at least for me. I don't fully understand what it is I don't really want to. I mean that's what I love about it. It's not premeditated always or created you. Have you have your ten ideas going into something and then it just starts telling you which one do you know. Well in the case of the character being progressively more mentally unstable being taken off meds. Because they can't afford to you know we can't be he can't psychoanalyze. You can't get as much like really to don't really ever. Nobody was on meds because he was actually. I mean there's like different and right but I guess that's the thing that could be any number of perspectives but if that is let's say that's the truth thing right and then it stands to reason in his mind and in a in a in a maniac Away like all that. Is this wonderful coming out party. You know what I mean so. It's not meant to be that. That was what Sarah Sarah like. That's the thing that's so difficult about or not difficult to me thought. Provoking about the film was that it was like a labyrinth that it was kind of it seemed like the character was choosing their own adventure based on where the heads you know but and the audience gets gets to do it too and so if we take anything to literally in to like dogmatically one way or this is what they were trying to say and then then it is missing the point of of of of just the expression of this not to mention that if you even let's say all that let's not talk about jokers is a long-standing super villain and slash character in comics and in the world and other films already and so there are certain elements of that that are just like part of that that story right that like is part of it and the retelling or the origin. Part is what's really interesting because you had so much more freedom and liberty but like why why didn't to me. It's like anything could have matched up for where we're headed with where that character becomes as we already know him in other films so I mean I I think that You know human psychology is really complex. And what motivates our actions really complex and we want we want easy answer who want solutions to those things because it's frustrating being human and it's frustrating seeing being things happening in the world that are terrifying because that's beyond your comprehension and so it's you know it makes sense in some ways to through to want to use the medium of film to try and control life in some ways but I I you know I think there's something thing valuable and interesting about not being able to control it I completely lost. My point is what is ringing and I four. That's a great thought. Yeah Hey no. Making a million on their four hundred gend-gender underdog character though. I found it fascinating that he he never or the way that he's portrayed traitor you portray him is never one that seems to be aware of that fight or flight he's rarely even though he is is Bash down again and again and again he still seems to. His world is small and looking down and he's he's rarely gazing to the horizon to see if anything is coming at him like. There's no. There's not that innate fear in him damn that it is that some some shit's going to go down and he's in trouble or that he's in and that was one of the most interesting aspects to me. There's an interesting I always you know I don't know but the one thing I done research about. PTSD from this other film and the one thing that I did recognize. There's a third component to Jesse that we don't often talk about. We talk about fight or flight. We don't talk about freeze and so when he's getting beat up by these kids. I'm like oh that's freeze mode like literally somebody that had suffered it kind of childhood trauma and physical abuse and literally just goes into the position. And what what is is it's an over stimulated at Migdal and that is the reason or the front. I'm not sure. Let's let's take this out so I don't know but it's basically our lizard brain right. It's the part of the old part of the rain a more online at certainly old. It's definitely getting older every day. But but basically over stimulated to make you you perceive and are looking for threat everywhere. You're just costly in this reactive. State and so they've proven scientifically when when you go into fighter flight. Your I q dropped significantly. Because you don't need higher brain functions. All you do is forgot how to get the fuck away from the Tiber Asia and so everybody fucking gets downright. And you're not you're you're you lose your ability to reason and this is somebody that is locked in that state constantly Salihi so he. He's wrong about so much it's happening he there. Aren't these real threat. So much of it is in his head so many seems seems kind of you know unbelievable about a bunch of teenagers stealing his sign and beating them up right so I to me. That's a great example of did this happen. Or is this just how he perceives the world right and so so. I think that it's somebody that's kind of locked in not that way of thinking And that never learned never learned the the the ability so you kind of reason properly to look at the world for what it is right there. Con- selene this kind of irrational state of fear. And I think a lot of people like you know. A lot of people have suffered greatly and suffered childhood trauma that they never never learned how to recover from that. So I think doubt is for me the the part of the movie. That's most important that I believe case in. Yeah but just that you know this. This is somebody that really suffered this trauma and you know it's a a lot of kids are adopted. They have Well who says without sound like an idiot or a deck but just statistically there are higher rates of of crime not because they're inherently bad got people right but because they don't have the the parenting and the right supports are some thank you And and so he's clearly a product of that world now. There are plenty of people that have those those tough beginnings And I don't know that they find their way or somehow they they overcome it. He's also a narcissist assists So you have these extras expectation that the world is supposed to treat him a particular way. you you know like royalty. And that's his narrative in his in his head so it's very to me it's complex. It's not an easy answer. It's not just right society society. Fuck this guy over. And they're responsible for his actions. I don't think that's the case. I don't think that's fair. It's just again. It's more complex than that. I'm certainly not smart enough to understand what it is The the the the calls and I I think that's goes back to what we were talking about. A little bit of interrupted you know again. You're thank you I know you don't. Nobody calmed by the fact that I literally started off saying something and with a thought everything you said there was plenty of great closure. I thought in each of your points. Yeah you may have lost some of that but I only have enough attention span for like what's happening now so whatever I've missed and then sometimes I'm paying attention other times thinking my dry cleaning cleanings left. I left at two months now and I do. They're going to dump it. I don't know yeah you know I never dry cleaned dry clean adult you tell them in all of these definitely I can see them and I've noticed that this also. This is my clean Hoodie too so I have five of them. I'm in four of them. I know dusting summers off there with a white cat before this. Thank you talking about a little bit related to what we were talking about here. which was I know as cleaning the skeeve off of me? 'CAUSE you're which was that that suffering begins with the life of suffering or right and that that comes from this idea that it is not what we want it to be right? Or what are we. Expect a certain outcome or feel were entitled to a certain reality that we end up creating the exact opposite of or maybe not the exact opposite but in different undulating ta you know in different waves we create come on guys. Let's go get in here with this. This is awesome heady stuff. Here's there's a big I give. It's so fucked up because I am forty five years old and I'm still scared of like uh of thirteen-year-old making fun of me and you're stupid of legal and so much of like my insecurity when when talking in your training these is in the back of my head. Somebody's GonNa you're stupid. What do you think shut up? And maybe they're right you know but it's prevents me so I really don't nothing. We're just here to learn and talk and chat and liars. Oh and you're gonNA like you go. There are they will show our own nephews news without listening to this. Yeah there's like I think there's like their loss. Well No. I think there's like it's it's all that might check it out. I just wanted to say you fucking but can I just say that those thirteen year old boys that are judging you and your mind in their mind. There's somebody a third another fellow peer judging them and it's literally like the the what is it. The bird watcher watched the bird watcher. Watch that that that that we're all doing that. And and what is that actually doing for anyone and not that like like everyone should be like well my opinion. Let me tell the world but it's also like why. Stop the if if you WANNA share with your friends and family about something meaningful and the whole world's GonNa Listen. You know you have to take into account that there. Are those thirteen year olds on your shoulder but maybe the right and and wife your criticism right. The thing is is that right well. There's value in criticism die. You learning about something and sometimes you have to humiliate yourself so does you have to be embarrassed to take a look at things and there's nothing wrong with that whereas we're so concerned and afraid all the time of like looking good and You being smart and saying the right thing and and sometimes it's. It's okay to to not do that to express your opinion and and they say in Buddhist philosophy difference absolute and that is something. I've heard in Buddhist philosophy. They say that embarrassment like being like horribly ably embarrassed is one of the most purifying things that you can happen to someone because it just takes tons of your negative out as just to have that naked moment in front of a lot of whatever that it's actually really helpful for you know if you if you have the courage to see life that way. It's a good thing. I think that that is probably the key component to to every job that that I do and it's why I have. Such hesitation and fear about working is because I know that I'm going to have to experience public humiliation and I don't want to because he does is but I know that like for me. Nothing's going to come of it. Nothing's imminent with the work unless I had that experience. Because it's just you have to get it to. At least I do have to place where I I. That's that's losing myself and I mean that's that's not being in character right. It's like not having control over how people perceive me or whether they think that I'm like good or talented..

"Great guy and and the it's such a a willingness and desire to to put everything he had into into this movie me and you know he's basically Arthur joker to me. There's a program that seems very sensitive and thoughtful and compassionate and then he's got this wicked wicked sense of humor and sometimes inappropriate but like wonderful yes and I was like Oh that's basically Arthur joker perfect. Wow and you okay with watching yourself onscreen like it's interesting you watch the dailies. I I hadn't been we first started shooting putting the first it was the first week and try to show me the frame just the frame not not even not even playback back. I said No. I don't WanNa see it always felt like I don't. I don't want to know what the cameras doing. I don't want to think of it objectively for me. It's I just want to have the the experience and whatever you do the camera knockers. I WANNA start playing to the camera but he showed me what happened. was there was a scene where I'm supposed to be kicking garbage and he said listen. I'm doing a wide shot and the Minneapolis stunt guy. Do it and I said he talking. I'm back stunt. I got it no problem and so did the first take and garbage and I just stopped down in the wrong way and did something. I don't know what what it was to my need. Just like popped it out actually in that take you see me sitting down and it's because I had tweaked my knee. Oh Wow and down so it was so bad that I can shoot anymore. Can he was like well now. You're going to have to watch is he. Was the stuntman is in the shot. Do it can't do it and we're doing a why shot so I watched that I it wasn't so bad so then a couple of days later he's sure you something this finish it okay so it looked at it and somehow go was able to able to to to watch it objectively. I didn't get caught up in my own like insecurities or concerns and and and then ended up becoming an important a tool for me that I never would have anticipated this but for some reason I found it really helpful and I think thank I saw so making a different way. Oh that's pretty cool I mean I can't believe I know they're senior talking about and you really. I mean you beat the shit out of that garbage. She the United States what did what it what it was now. We discovered with a lot of these scenes. You mentioned the running and stuff. you win you lose when when you lose that kind of way you start losing muscle as well so the body. I think it just wasn't prepared. I'm also probably getting older. AH long I do the same diet. This movie called the master and that was also very physical and I don't remember ever being injured so I think the difference might be the ten years that I've aged success then. I just wanted to ask about the journal which I think I'm on right in thinking you that was written by you. You have this sort of joke diary and journal to me through that process. Was that written all in character alright till you thinking trying to get in the mind of second like wasn't in character. I was trying to find very very early on and usually Muesli. Somebody else does that work for the actor because they don't have enough time to fill up a journal but I'd gone to New York a month in advance because I wanted wanted to just be with todd spend a lot of time and rehearse a lot and so is given the journalists that I have the time. I think that I can I can fill this out and so I got the journal along with several magazines we were going to do cut outs of the nagazine that we'd paste in there and initially. I got this journal title and I pulled it a pen. I opened it up and I had nothing to do. We doing and I texted todd. I didn't even know where to begin and he said a minute. Let me send over something and and so tim has got silver at sent over this this story that they imagined with something you might have read about so I started writing that out and just just whatever reason that it opened up something in me and then I just you know every day or just would fill the journal up and and I have a lot of really stupid bad jokes and and so it was perfect for the character and so I wrote I wrote those down the remember he taught it sent me photograph of the the steps that I that I take on to get home. I remember looking at that and you know I didn't have the opportunity to go today that location until we're actually shooting but seeing the image of it was re powerful. I remember that I just wrote step after step after step after Steph and I feel like three pages with step after step and something about doing that fucks you up. I Don Janika shining sort of exactly. Can you remember any of the jokes in there with any classics. You want to no no no no no. That's just the the Journal Fair enough. I just wanted to ask briefly. You pick so many interesting roles in your work. You've got with really interesting. Kristen drew says like poor Thomasson Ramsey and now phillips. How do you choose a row like what's your criteria. Do you have specific criteria or is it more sort of instincts. Also it's very simple. It's just the filmmaker that's simple. Yeah yeah different thirteen like a good actor and my great actor is a great director. It's you know it's simple so yeah. That's what that's what I look for more than and the budget or whether studio independent or what the Jonah is none of those things matter as much as who the filmmaker is and sometimes it's just this is whether you like the person or not with if you like I can spend three months with them and we have a similar kind of idea of what this this could be but yeah. It's it's. It's always maker. I guess if you're spending every waking moment you were with todd then you kind of want to get on with someone like that right yeah for sure yeah yeah yeah. I mean I've been I've been in situations where you didn't really get somebody. I mean awful yeah. I can imagine walking. Thank you so much interest all right so that was Joaquin Phoenix and now is time to round off the show and the time honored tradition of live shows with an audience. QNA Any anything and why the hell would you have have you anything you want to ask these three giggling idiots in front of you then put up your hands and I'm going to take up this microphone and you're GonNa have to come to me because it's a wired microphone and it can only stretch so far so if you come down here unless they're like a comecon style form an orderly queue or his orderly queue. Don't take a leaf the jokers book and hopefully there'd be more than three of you less good excellent all right. I'm coming over now. How are you worried as key fronts the Q. Tossing people that are you were kicking people in the face. It's all good. What's your name Robin Okay. He must like the joker then so what is your question and with Dolly talking earlier about. How can you ever forgive me and Richard E grant famous leaders not imbibe is excellent at playing under the influence. I was wondering because I'm `tatoes last half the empire what some of your favorite performances of under the influence actors would be of drunkenness the kindness or anything. That's a great one of one right off right off Dr Peter O'Toole in my favorite ear. I'm not sure how much he was acting fairness him by he didn't even though I think he's imbibing yeah so he plays this is based on the on Errol Flynn. Actually he plays a very loose matinee idol Allen Swan and believe leave it was also based experiences of Young Mel Brooks so young Mel Brooks and like one thousand nine hundred forty thousand nine hundred fifty or something they got found himself as an intern and one day he was basically given flint. Look after an aeroplane was a hell raiser par excellence and what happened was just madness and so this film portrays that but changes his name to protect the innocent or guilty and so you have mark Linn Baker who if anyone remembers cousin Larry from perfect strangers and also who stars the noises off movie circles circle replays effectively L. Brooks and Peter O'Toole is great like say Louche Guy who's got loads of alcohol running through the saints and it's really really fun really funny and there's a moment bit of a problematic moments now obviously but it was a moment where drunkenly Alan Swann bursts into the ladies toilets to have a a slash and they're too old biddies in there who were stunned by his presence and he's he's got his latte out shy and the lady goes so this is for ladies and he looks down he goes on Madame so is this but I have to run a little water through it now in as the best lines from that film fantastic fantastic so there you go my favorite year. Peter until my answer guys Chris. I was GONNA say Brad Pitt in true romance given that we opened up beyond whole again then he may. I don't know how much method acting going on I don't want to speculate but that is superb high acting I believe I don't know don't do drugs kids. Yeah I would say I like Anthony. Michael Hall's Breakfast Club but more than that he's drunk in weird science when he's when he's is playing with Bill Paxton's face and just falling back. I love that I think it's also Nick Cage and all of us Vegas et cetera heavy. It doesn't really depressing and that's the other spectrum around whereas actually Michael who I think would be on my own problem with Anthony Michael Hall in the breakfast. Sentences should never come anyone else. I'm sorry but I hate the high acting in the breakfast club because they all they all sit around and smoke pot and then they go oh Matt and run around the library. That was an old strain laced with something like since. When is that the reaction that everybody everybody has it's like they were on ecstasy or something? I I don't know don't do drugs drugs. It's always really genuine. It's my least favorite scene in the breakfast club. Bob pissing everything so Richard. The your favorite rubbing yet recent good one. I like the girls book smart with the Straw aw dolls doll. Thank you so much indeed probably everybody. The story of how Richard E grant is not just a teetotaler but he's finally allergic to alcohol and so when he took the role of with Nell he had never really been drunk before but he had to have you wanted to have and Bruce Robinson wanted to have that chemical mem- memory so they went out and got absolutely shit faced he basically recorded the whole thing and it just felt awful like have almost an allergic reaction to this alcohol but it worked out pretty good but women's. I was a hello sir. How are you in high. I'm I'm very good..

It's fine you too Christine Spike to j.j Abrams and Kevin Kennedy and we talked about all sorts of things from what they did with Carrie Fisher and you know the kind of questions led to the the screenplay things to things that they thought about two things. This isn't the peace because a genuine you ran out of words so I was the so I also was to increase terrier about this. What did you come from because we're Ron Johnson right the last Jedi. The question in his head was who is Luke Skywalker. That was the question that he used to kind of kick. Start the whole story line. Whether you love hate it and we this one the two questions that they will one who is ray who she really might that was the question was how strong is the fourth. Oh you wanted to explore this firm.

Kylo Ren on their wow Raila Hashtag Raila when you put them together they are crossing lightsabres. That's not a sex thing literacy in crossing lines crossing this dreams exotic. That's very excited.

Sort of tunnel shift for the last like it feels a little bit like Ryan. Johnson was like yes lots of Ren Rice parentage snake fuck that unless there's something else and now jd he's been yeah okay. Let's bring all this stuff back again so it's house. Nokia's back triumphantly with the knights of Ren and they already parents spoiler. I know but you know this. This is something that he sort of. He's dealt with in his but one of the things you really liked from the outset. I was wont Ron Johnson did with the ray low relationship so they aren't they all furthering that and the ray low shippers lost their fucking mindless tonight over this which was pretty exciting all right so now is. I think you guys are shameless. Plug over those are Hartselle done right now. That's out of the way. Shall we have a guest delighted to be joined on the gas by why is a wonderful actor who this week has turned her hand. Directing whether fantastic debut film good posture please welcome the star of Dole and and can you ever forgive me and now the writer slash director of good posture. Dolly walls the only thank you so much for coming all this way from London so very very excited to have you here a good posture. Yes yes yes. I was just I was just mark. It on your posture is excellent and of course this is your debut film. It's fantastic. It's it's been a long time in the making. This movie of you long had pretensions of directing. Is this something that you wanted to do for well. I directed school when I was fourteen. Andre to play called noises off by Michael Frame then I met him with my dad was a writer and a success and he introduced me to him once and then walked he he said this is my daughter she directed of any two of the three acts and then I mean it was any school. Urine elapsed drifts certain amount of time that you were. Let's deal so I think I probably have always wanted to direct but this came in a way where so there's a guy called Jamie atoms whose directed direct lots of improvised films and a few of them and yes two years ago three years ago. He said he started asking some of the actor had been films. If they wanted to direct they had a story story. They wanted to tell you scared and then I did play to sort of justify wasn't doing a Broadway and the girl that my daughter was grace. Race is the star of the pump so that was sort of serendipitous things happen and then the next year asked me again and said I think you'll be asked identity Maggie Monte to put up the money will afi if you say no again identity you'll get staff and so then I said okay fine and then I had a very short time I wrote in about about six weeks to write it and about an I shut in where we shot in twelve days. You had one extra day today's so the whole thing was sort of a whirlwind so I think ed being. I think just didn't give me the time to to really think about whether I was going to fuck it up you can. I have you did not fuck it up absolutely so can you tell people what good posture set the scene for them and it's so awful to say coming of age. 'cause you switch off but it is sort of it's young woman. I sort of slightly entitled lost but really charming young a young woman who breaks up with boyfriend in the first scene and he deposits her these friends of her parents and she's going to stay with but it's just on the other side of the road that far away and it's the relationship bills between her and the reclusive writer this woman emily mortimer place called Julia price and it's just this sort of yeah. It's such a small because I knew that I had such a short time in a very small budget. I I wrote a Qu like I wrote quite a. It's quite a small story but hopefully affecting thing so it's just about how these two women's friendship sort of relationship that they make in this. House and Grace's grace's anymore because he went went on this last night with my parents and my mom thought that Lillian was awful. The two of you know I'm lights and she thought she thought was awful and by the end she'd completely I mean I don't know if she'd won her over and she kind of you. You know come through so they will. It's a real progress for her and I think a real learning curve is also. She's so charming. I think you can't but but I think the car I mean grace. The actress is absolutely absolutely nothing lead in a tool she so we're brought up and sweet and polite and wonderful but there is something Joe Ming about billion because she's just like I saw stray dog or something she hasn't taught and that's why directing the same with them with the DOCO and he's is going note that he wanted her to be sort of clueless coming in rep you know getting sort of muddle over eating things that you have a really interesting device in the film as well which is the kind of to camera testimonials power that documentary using actual real wasp where did that come from well that came from me thinking that it will be less exposition on T. like Tattoo. Keep saying Julia prices are really successful writer in Vietnamese. Let's Harold Rutta whereas if he sees. Ad Smith Monte nameless and Jonathan Ames then I mean at the people in this country as much about this but he's a brilliant writer he wrote bored to Death Service Johnston and then I was in the show he cooled blunt talk patterns but I just thought it was a quick way of you really believing that she's this great writer on release people here in the the wells rolodex to rolodexes. Is this other thing. Are they in your contacts know. Mosaic Smith lives in New York where I live in Brooklyn and she emily knew her and then I met I met at a party or something and then I had to so cringing embarrassing talk to sort of take a drink instead of pitch it. Oh so feel my next game and then she did laugh. I said something I knew I was not not. GonNa win. It sort of being clever. She was going to enhance Dan thinks eloquent very bright and intelligent but but may laugh about something and then she and also right right is actually quite down for being in things and maybe she liked. Maybe she didn't think it's going to be totally terrible but and then once I got her. It's like television and then I got Martin names because he's friends with her and I think he acted as a child and my head was quite keen and he so good in the I think under an how did you get Emily Mortimer for this movie. That was really really really tough. We'll finally enough. I mean she is my best friendless and a secret and we'll have been since we're in for instance. We've got four. We've been best friends since about twenty mature but she own this weirdly.
