Interview with John David Washington
"John David Washington who impressed the hell Outta me for his portrayal in Black Klansman is a protagonist Christopher. Nolan's tenant. Areas on that fame direct. I think because this is in a traditional spy thriller film either I think falls in line with what he's what he does with his brand is which is innovation I think he wants the character in the audience to be one in the same in that they want what did they character? The protagonist experiencing I believe he wants to the artist to experience. You know he wants to one relationship. So you know even if it's on a subconscious level, I, think not knowing his name not necessarily knowing a lot about information about his background limits Lindsay audio lent itself to the audience experiencing exactly what he is at the same time. I'm a huge fan massive fan And I think his ability obviously storytelling ability at the core of it just is is top notch. Just knows how to tell a story and how he's He's tells it nearly He's just brakes, all kinds of traditions, and whereas filmmaking I think he has this ability to make you care and feel and be so invested in the characters while there's a world that. Maybe, it was on the SCIFI level. If it's if it's I, know this kind of science that's being introduced in the film that we not we might not necessarily know or comprehend We do feel it through the characters lenses. We do feel it through what they're experiencing. So I don't know if there's anybody that's able to do that. He can be so ambitious in. and matching different types of genres are different elements of films that we've all loved in familiar with and totally used them in create them in a new way in his way. So illness becomes a Christopher Nolan genre in a way season on John and his Co Star Once and Future Batman Robert Pat. He's a phenomenal actor incredible incredible performer. He's one of the best working today He's so dynamic. He has he has so many layers he can do so many different. Whether, it be physical whether it be accents could be just as the how you how you experience around patents in performance you come out of it just shaking sometimes in and in this is so charming and he's he's so different from you know what we've seen before it's great to see. It's great to be a part of it. As I always say you got experience the film in the right way. As the trailer goes a concept goes as well. Don't try to understand it. Feel it. And you will not be able to execute that thought that that knowledge without it being experienced in the mix in the theater properly look for ten it on the big screen and where mask for bite. This is Tony Talada.

"klansman" Discussed on Here & Now
"From NPR and Wbz I'm Robin Young I'm Tanya Moseley it's here and now the US topped five million confirmed corona virus cases over the weekend and more than one hundred and sixty thousand people have died from the virus. A new report also shows that nearly one hundred thousand kids tested positive and the last two weeks of July. These numbers come as schools and universities reopened throughout the country and for more on all of this, we have with us Dr Rachelle Will Linski Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital five million confirmed cases that's astounding. But. How accurate are these numbers when we know that states like California and Florida are discovering glitches to their databases that make their numbers in accurate could the cases actually be higher? I think the numbers could be much higher for for so many reasons. First of all, let's just pause and say five million cases. Those are five million cases we know about the CDC estimates that that could be ten percent of the total. That is for many different challenges. One is people are symptomatic of course, but another is that we haven't been testing enough. So five million cases as. We've reached five million from four million and just seventeen days. I think more astounding them the five million cases the over one hundred sixty, thousand deaths I mean when you just think about the sheer volume of about number I'm we're at death rates of over a thousand a day daily and I think the the death toll here is truly astounding. Yes. Can we talk about the accuracy of the numbers that we're receiving and possibly some of the reasons why there's so many problems Florida and California are having these data collection problems why are these states failing with their data collection and can we trust data from other states? You know like so many things that have not been centralized. In this pandemic data collection is yet another one it's kept to the local authorities. I, think volume has been a huge problem. So how do we standardly collect the data? How can we look at the data across states? How do we account for data delays and then finally we report death data and so these are all sort of really tricky ways to sort of try and compile the data and make it comparable across states there hasn't been federal direction in order to be able to do that and. Some of these states have just simply overwhelmed and we know that several states including Virginia and Ohio and Louisiana are banning together to bring that uniformity that you're talking about I want to ask you about this report though on kids from the American Academy of Pediatrics. A hundred thousand kids infected in two weeks in July children still make fewer than ten percent of. Confirmed cases but the rate of infections in kids is outpacing Americans overall and I want to know how big of a threat is that for schools that are reopening right now yeah. This is a really interesting space. You know when we talk about kids and other areas of infection and pandemic flu to begin with I'm kids were really thought to be a major vector. In this pandemic kids have been less implicated as being the initial case, a household, the challenging news with one hundred, thousand kids is wow that's just a lot of kids and so even if you have a point, two percent fatality rate, which is really quite low, you're still talking about two hundred fatalities. When you talk about what it implies for opening schools, we know that in places that have been able to open schools successfully, the community spread the amount of disease is around one hundred thousand. Then when you hear about these cases in, for example, Georgia that has been on the news that county Paldon county where the school closed had case rates of around twenty, one, hundred, thousand. So that's twenty fold higher than one might have expected in places that have done this successfully. My last question for you Dr will inskeep going back to our conversation about bad data last week I spoke with Ohio Governor Mike Dewine after he got what appears to be a false positive from antigen test and these are the rapid tests. The White House has been using for people who are around president trump the White House now wants to ramp up production of these tests to twenty million a month is that enough and will we really be able to rely on the results of this kind of testing? It's a really good question that I want I think the public needs to understand the tests that we do in the hospital to diagnose the patient in an ICU coming into the emergency room needs to be very sensitive. The tests that we need for community to understand whether somebody is infectious the Antigen Chester doing quite well. Now, what happened with the governor with regard to whether that was a false positive or a true positive that really needs to be teased apart. But with different kinds of tests and different testing strategies but I do believe that the antigen tests have a really important role for public health intervention to understand whether people are infectious today. That's Dr Rachelle Linski Chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital Dr. so much. Thanks so much for having me Tanya. Well to Hong Kong. Now, which today used its new national security law to make a high profile arrest of Jimmy lied a prominent pro-democracy voice and a supporter of the protests that erupted in Hong Kong last year when the law was proposed by China critic said it was designed to crack down on dissent Beijing says it's for national security, but the police action today at lies office the first time the new law has been used against the media CNN international reporter Will Ripley joins us from Hong Kong on skype will this was very public described what happened today? These were the kind of scene that we're used to seeing in developing countries a huge swarm of a police officers walking into the newsroom of apple daily newspaper owned by Jimmy Lai, immediate tycoon, a billionaire, and an outspoken critic of Beijing and it was surreal to watch officers in a newsroom where there are reporters that are doing stories about them and the government checking ID's going through evidence all because Jimmy Lai is being charged under this new. National, security law and basically He's kind of on a list of people of activists who were deemed problematic which you're probably a big reason why Beijing push hard to get this law passed in the first place well, and this arrest came just a couple of days after Chinese and Hong, Kong officials were said to media reports said that they were shrugging off new sanctions that were imposed by the US. But also today China announced unspecified sanctions against. Politicians and heads of organizations promoting democratic causes. This is including senators, Rubio and Ted Cruz. There's a little back and forth going on there did this arrest the timing of this arrests have anything to do with those sanctions we don't know if the timing is connected to the sanctions but yes I mean this arrest comes as tensions between the US and China over this National Security Law have been escalating and there's these back and forth sanctions. Accusing Hong Kong officials of undermining the city's autonomy, and now you have something that a lot of four news organisations were afraid of You know a month or two ago nobody would have imagined in Hong Kong. Immediate organizations would be rated by police likeness and it just goes to show that the freedom of the press freedom of speech is now no longer a part of life year at least for people who hold a view that Beijing. CENTRAL GOVERNMENT DOES NOT AGREE WITH You if China and it's officials in Hong Kong believed that this was going to maybe. You put a dent in the pro democracy movement went the opposite betrayal or do you think people will be cowed by this? I can only tell you based on observations this year over last year I saw the protests have all but evaporated. Now a large reason for that is the pandemic and the fact that currently you can't gather in groups larger than to if you leave your home, you're in Hong Kong. So are saying that the government is conveniently using the timing of the pandemic to accomplish. The elimination of the protest movement, and also by the way postponing Legislative Council elections that were supposed to happen you know until next year they were supposed to happen next month and that is huge because as they postponed the elections they're also disqualifying candidates with pro democracy viewpoints they've already disqualified at least a dozen and these are people that were doing well in the polls that were expected to beat and take seats from the Pro Beijing parties. So you have the pandemic combined with this National Security Law that has effectively ended protests you have essentially now people who. Are So scared at deleting.
Spike Lee: a new black wave of cinema
"We've spent past two weeks in a collective state of horror and anger over George Floyd's killing at the hands of Minneapolis police, officer Dirk, Shaaban, just one thousand unjustly killed by police. It's hard to look at what happened. Floyd, and not think of Radio Raheem Bill. Nuns character from do the right thing. Or countries fucked up needs to change. No American filmmaker has had the foresight or insight about that need for change quite like spike has. Some directors interpret the past some capture the present spike does both and he sees the future. Spent some time in the past few weeks. Returning to some spikes movies in anticipation of his new film to five bloods, it's a staggering body of work as wide as it as deep as warm and inviting as provocative and laden with traps ever. Spike isn't the totality of the black filmmaking experience and I don't want to suggest that, but for forty years he's told stories about that experience that have been seen more widely and discussed more feverishly than anyone and they still haven't been seen enough. Of the conversations you've been having with loved ones this month about the problems that people are forced to look at more closely police brutality, systemic racism locally sanctioned violence gentrification, tribal loyalty, the failures of government, personal sacrifice versus public good hiring practices, power, art and money spike was ahead of most Americans for decades on these issues, but while the stories he tells are frequently polemical. His movies are quite nuanced. They rarely tell you exactly what to think. Instead foisting contradictions and crises, interviewers, laps and making them decide. He crafts extraordinary dilemma movies inspired by the new Orrin Westerns and social dramas that he studied at Nyu and even though he doesn't force a conclusion is movies are frequently an intelligence test over the years, critics and audiences have repeatedly shown their ass immediately upon exiting a spike movie. For person like me seeing his work at a young age me up, helped me see beyond my keyhole-size view of the world, but it's not like spike wasn't relatable. He was the Avatar of new. York Knicks FANDOM! He was a regular presence on TV and Jordan commercials. He was directing music videos and frequently according controversy in the movie world he consistently challenged fans and detractors to reexamine their beliefs, and he always destabilized our comfort at sixty three. He is still very much a vital filmmaker. Twenty eight teams Black Klansman was among his most honored films and marked his First Competitive Oscar win for best adapted screenplay. Spike is a hall of Famer on this show and his work accounts for some of my favorite movies ever made. This episode is dedicated to those movies and will include conversations with a couple of his key collaborators as well as a part of a conversation that was more than I had on the watchable last summer. About Lee's nineteen eighty-nine masterpiece. Do the right thing. That movie redefines the term remarkable. In it! You can see and hear the pain and conflict. We're talking about right now. Watch it again. If you haven't really later in the show, we'll have a conversation with jazz. Musician and film composer Terence Blanchard a longtime contributor of spikes. They've teamed up on fifteen films including two five bloods, and he is truly one of the great writers of music for movies. I also wanted to share a conversation I had with the film editor Barry Alexander Brown in February. Two Thousand Nineteen, after he received an Oscar nomination for his work on Black Klansman they've been together since spikes first movie. She's gotTa, have it? Like so many great filmmakers spike works with the same crew over and over again, not just Aronson Berry, but production designer when Thomas Costume. Designer Ruth Carter casting director Robby Reed, and that incredible troop you've seen over and over again in his movies Denzel Washington, of course, Johnsboro on Davis Samuel Jackson Roger One of Your Smith Arthur Nas. Kerala Delroy Lindo is Ahah whitlock junior Alleluia Debbie Masar Ruby Dee, the list goes on. Later this week will be back with a review of spikes, the five bloods, which will be available to watch on Netflix on Friday, it's the story of four black Vietnam veterans who return to the jungle for some unsettled business, its reunion of sorts of some of those actors, and for it's a kind of mission statement about missions. Lastly. We'd like to top five on this show. Spike is made more than thirty feature length films, many of which are indisputable classics to cover every style and format under the Sun. Drama Comedy Crime Films Romances Documentary Sports Movies farce satire musical. He's really done at all. I would recommend virtually every movie he's ever made, but before I share my five year a few places, you can watch his movies just in case you're trying to bone up on some of the ones you've missed. Overlook along the way.

Spike Lee is first black person to lead Cannes Film Festival jury
"So just a little recap the SAG awards were handed out last night in LA so the south Korean film parasite made history for its win for best ensemble the film while winning this still the awards were still criticized for its lack of diversity which is a big conversation that's happening you might have heard of the Oscar so white hashtags back in the headlines again the entire Best Director category this year is made primarily up of white guys the acting categories a pretty way to know Jennifer Lopez for hustler is no Lupita nyong'o who's hurting us no one from dolomite is my name this left a lot of critics prize discouraged at the lack of representation then at the Cannes Film Festival they threw a curve ball the announce the Spike Lee is the new president of the Cannes jury he's that legendary filmmaker behind films like do the right thing and jungle fever black Klansmen now Spike Lee is the first black person to ever lead the Cannes jury and seventy three year history come back all this it's our Q. screen panel here in the studio John Semele Antena sending it right about TV movie arts and culture hi guys hello hi so this is so much going on there's so much to talk about him to start with you can give us a quick like history especially in cans okay so back in the eighties when spike was young and you know excited to show his movies to the world he won a youth prize with she's gotta have it and then he came back in nineteen eighty nine with do the right thing and it was like the front runner to win some big award but it didn't it ended up not winning not even a single prize and Spike Lee you is not so happy about that and he ended up blaming the jury presidents filmmaker them vendors and he had some price words for him it he said I have the quote right here vin had better watch out because I'm waiting for his **** somewhere deep in my closet I have a Louisville slugger bats with vendors and name on it okay so so so small and most likely was back at camp twenty eighteen with a black Klansmen here is at the press conference United States America was built upon the genocide of native people and slavery that is the fabric of the United States America as my book on brother JZ was say fax we on the right side of history with this film so I want to point out that the reason we're broke rehashing all this is because basically is as a big job can right now so John is this going to be the fact that he's leaving the jury a bit of a wake up call well as ever I'm of two minds about it I mean I would be hesitant to use being jury president of a prestigious Film Festival where everyone wears tuxedos in the south of France and some sort of bell weather for representation and diversity in Hollywood that's it it is something I mean as you said there has never been a black jury had in the history of the festival and I think that the palm d'or which this jury awards that's the price of the award it's still I would say the most prestigious award in cinema it is a way of sort of drumming up interest in a film I mean parasite which you just won't stop gushing about overflowing toilets in Paris but for you should go watch it again for the third time I think so you will I want to point out I would believe that John was the first one to like say me a Twitter DM being like Hey man you could check up and all of a sudden they do it on the for the heck say when the palm d'or which sort of started this journey that it's on now so it is certainly a way that you can generate interest in a film and I think it speaks often to a filmmaker status I think people will be watching to see what films Spike Lee finds interesting and I don't know I think he's made a lot of good films and he's made a lot of social films but I love the guy and I'm happy form I think it's like just an interesting like historically if you if you look at it historically the beef that's been going on between spike and and can you know like back in the eighties like back to do the right thing I I don't know he he had some choice words and and I don't know like it was Sally fields apparently who is like feeding him all this information about how long his victim yeah who didn't like do the right thing didn't think that like the ending was really worth it all this stuff and I guess he just didn't get the movie you know so yeah and apparently spike came out after that saying that what he said was stupid and immature and you know I guess in twenty eighteen he did when the ground pre awards black Klansman so he's I don't know ease down to three as we do the right thing I mean it's not one of the major American films ever made teen I we just talked with the spikes two thousand movie bamboozled is coming out from the criterion collection on home video I think next month a film that I think was widely misunderstood at the time I got reimagining of a minstrel show exactly it's about a sort of a TV minstrel show that someone creates a try to bomb their own career sort of a producer's plot line but it ends up becoming immensely popular film it was widely misunderstood at the time that I think is right for a re appraisal is going to get it when it comes out so I think people you know they always talk about spike Lee's films and he deserves a five but if you can imagine what can is trying to get out of putting Spike Lee as head of the jury and what's likely might be trying to get out of it are these two paths of origin what makes my cynical answer would be that they know I mean he was a kid in nineteen ninety nine he made a in quotes joke that someone should shoot Charlton Heston because he was responsible for gun violence in America you know he's called compared Clint Eastwood to a plantation owner I mean they're certainly like a level of let's say energy that spike brings that sort of my grab attention and headlines but also can would like that yes the thing can can benefit from that I mean do they do what like TMZ headlines about it's good ratings like any other organization he's a major filmmaker he's a major filmmaker major filmmakers and people at this level are who had the service but I just I just I I love what Kim had to say when they talked about you know including him as the jury had they said lease flamboyant personality is sure to shake things up like I just find the use of the word flamboyant they're kind of condescending we have yeah it applies to maybe to some of his sartorial tendencies and that's about it right if you just turning and I'm Tom how are you listening to Q. screen panel with John family and
Adam Driver, 'Marriage Story'
"I learned to be comfortable in it just because it was unfamiliar to me when we started force awakens and not so much in how we were working on it but the scale and size of it. I'd never works on the just getting used to rhythm of a set being so long before we you know there's so many special effects and so many people on set I was used to just smaller groups the people in small rooms with like borrowed costumes. So I mean that's been but just like a smaller smaller people around and suddenly the set in itself is a huge theater for like one hundred people. I took me a while to get used to that. The rhythm in what like the technical part of the you know the CGI th the effects into me a while to get used to but because it was jj and because it was Ryan working on it apart from our costumes being dramatically different than anything. I'd worked before they made it feel like small independent movies. And that I had a preconceived idea that you know you were going to lose those conversations about the humanity and sake of the spectacle of it but B I J J. You don't lose any of that. The first conversations that we have were about the humanity of that character. How do we make that person? Not Two dimensional but someone you can watch breathing unscreened and and so. We didn't in that sense. It didn't feel that that-that markedly different. Did you take anything anything of Kylo. Yeah all sorts of stuff. I have a whole costume. Yeah they know you took it. Yeah Yeah Okay so this is not really taking anything I have two helmets. Have Light Sabers. I have all sorts of stuff. I don't want to do with the costume because right now it's just in a a box but I'm trying to be weird to see you at home. Basically with all right. Here's everyone war museum to me this week. So great and we'll just have this together could do that. All right a sanctuary you've got to-do anybody who comes and visits knows that star wars in terms of you looking at you do you watch yourself no. You don't do it. No I've seen things things like I watch star wars Somehow once but apart from tied down and forced to look at yourself yeah yeah yeah me and no one. I are having a debate about marriage story. You know It's hard to to watch myself for for lots of different reasons. You know you just critical of yourself self. Well it's that and also to kind of really absorb what's happening. You KINDA gotTa Watch it like three or four times to to practice. Not You know not thinking about you doing it and watch it four times. You can't do that and also I feel it just leads you to trying to well not only being self conscious but I kinda like orchestrating it onset so I went on the unaware and being unaware of. We're a camera is or you. You know what you're doing or how you look. I think sometimes we don't have that in life so no you don't have it so I don't want to. I'm not so curious I'm trying to make it look better her. You know unless you kind of have to the thing kind of requires visual well over most of the time. If it's a movie you can do that on the stage you could play Pale tonight and knowing what's going on internally and not really necessarily seeing what the outside is who do you trust you trust your wife. is she a good critic of you did she say she's a great great critic. is she kind or just ruthless. No she's ruthless. In a way that is Is Thoughtful not. I just like you know you suck. Let's let's let's split up but like yeah that would be that would be. I can't stay married to you. Know She's just this she's honest about it as is really good at articulating The good and bad in a way that you I kind of need in life I want. I don't want people around me telling May I also don't want a lot of people telling me what's wrong with it so you try to pick like one or two people that you trust their opinion and they say oh. Yeah that thing so you. You have a problem with. I can see but it doesn't register or or the opposite the thing that you think. It's working truly sucks. Isn't it also almost as bad when when the to me. It's all deserve what's happening to you. I'm really happy for you. Know that it is and you should trust it but I think any actor is a little bit. You know suspicious of this constant praise or you're going to win the Oscar for this sort of like you were nominated for Black Klansman and you get into that race. Do you try. I keep that out of your head. You have totally. I know. It's I think it's really I've been lucky and having people around me who are I mean like you know I'm I'm around my wife my family. They're very quick to tell me all the mistakes that you make and I don't I don't give that much. It's all good. Good all when you do win the Oscar for this which I think you should you should say how did this come from. Nobody around me. Even thinks I'm I'm good in so anyway. Congratulations on all of this. And again we come to the end of the show as we did the last where when I asked you to sing just a little moment I was having a good time. I'm not a singer right. And then Dan people go to marriage story and watch him do like a Sun High Aria being alive. I sat there watching. That was the only time it took me out of the movie. The Bachelor told me he can't sing anything and he does. Maybe the toughest eleven o'clock number number as they call them in Broadway history. How did you steal yourself or that moment? How come you didn't say to Noah Baumbach I can't it was different when you're like you know sing? Sing Sing Jingle Bells as you as opposed to sing a jingle bells okay. Don't you remember the song he did sing for me. No twinkle twinkle little. So I'm just asking uh-huh from Monaco Mall Man. Come on look at this fearless actor. No no no character and that's easier place. I don't know how Kylo Ren be. Would he actually listen to the Henry. The fifth singing twinkle. Drink a little stuff. No Ma'am Damn.

Of course, this is one of those urban legend things that I don't mind if it continues because it really does is get really dumb people to hurt themselves trying to move animals that are much much larger than they are kind of fun. But I just wonder why the mayor of Oklahoma City is concerned himself this I guess he he knows that he gets free publicity from people like me who mentioned will Rogers airport in Oklahoma City.

Oscar nominations 2019 predictions: From A Star is Born to Roma
"Eight. I saw green book most recently, which I thought was great that may end up being my pick to to win the best picture. You've seen all best picture movies except for Roma. So you've got Black Panther black klansman bohemian rhapsody, by the way, Adam Lambert and Queen are going to perform Sunday, that'd be cool. That'll be really lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper performing. Which will also be cool. You really cool the favorite green book Romo rumour, aroma. Tony Romo model a star is born and vice. And who you picking unpicking green book to win because I think it made you feel the best and it was well done a period piece based on a true story, Rome. I think is getting a lot of a lot of buzz too. But maybe the director Affonso who also I think one best picture for gravity in our best director in two thousand thirteen for gravity Black Panther, which I know dragon scene for sure is definitely the best of all the marvel movies ever made. And it's interesting because it was such a big deal about their cast being all black the director and writer Ryan Kugler African American and so I'm surprised that he wasn't nominated for best director as well, Spike, Lee. This is his fifth nomination for best director. He's never one. But I'm picking green book to win that wouldn't be surprised if Roma does I loved bohemian rhapsody. But you remember when it came out, and we talked about they took some liberties with the story joke that Freddie Mercury doesn't die of aids in the movie because I remember making that joke. They changed a bunch of stuff around in that movie. Why did you read the bio and Freddie Mercury? I talked to friends that have seen it the no a lot more about Queen and the timetable with how the movie plays out and how he got in the band and stuff, but it's an entertaining movie. What's the best movie you've seen this year because I'm picking green book to win? I haven't seen any of them, by the way. So I got nothing. Oh. Yeah. Set a best picture you haven't seen Black Panther either. No. But are you a superhero movie guy? No, not at all. No. I I haven't seen any of those. I'm gonna say that I I like bohemian rhapsody a lot and I'm not a huge Queen fan. But I really liked it. But I'm gonna go with the stars four stars born it was it was really really I think the biggest reason reasonable win. Cathy, is that it's already been this is the fourth. They've done this story. I know that they've tweaked it. I didn't lady Gaga is gonna pull the upset for best actress, I hope so I you know, it really really made me like lady Gaga put her in a total different category fro. Yes. She's fantastic. A great singer. But you know, I I like her music, but I never put her like on this pedestal you've tried to act not try you weren't actor try. That's a bit of a stretch. But yeah, but the point is imagine the first real you ever play you get nominated for an Oscar, and I get that she's playing a struggling musician, and she can easily identify with that and go back to what it took to get discovered and all of that. And and you know, toiling in nothing jobs hoping for that break, but to execute that onscreen, and she was she was the best part of the movie by far Bradley Cooper is really good. But I hope she wins. Even though Glenn Close, it's seven nation. She's never one. So she could be a lifetime achievement kind of winner. If you will she's phenomenally talented, she s I don't know. But I liked Ramey. Malik as I think he's going to go. I mean, he did a great impersonation. So let's go actor in a leading role, you got Christian bale? Vice Bradley Cooper, a star is born Willem Defoe at eternity gate. Remmy Romney Malik bohemian rhapsody Vigo Mortenson green book, jussie smollet for the Chicago hope. Very funny. Avi next next year. He'll get one for that bright. Yeah. Like when Golden Globes. Yeah. So that it plus you're combining acting and singing did he really singing. Oh, okay. So we he was acting like a cigarette. Huber really saying. Yeah, he did having Adam Lambert seeing at the goal K, so okay. And at the Oscars, maybe Bradley Cooper, then because he's singing and acting and this is any directed it. This is Bradley Cooper's forced nomination as an actor, and he's never won Christian bale. One once Willem Dafoe. This is his fifth nomination. He's never won. And I don't I know Vigo Mortenson hasn't won. And certainly Rami Malik first nomination. Still picking me Malik to win. I thought he was great. Actress in a leading role you have low LIZA appereciation from Roma. You have Glenn Close. Everybody knows here from the wife Livia Coleman from the favorite lady. Gaga stars born Melissa McCarthy, can you ever forgive him in a more serious turn not a not a comedic role. She's awesome. The best lady Gaga for that. I think it's upset Glenn Close as the heavy favorite. But I'm I'm pulling a lady Gaga upset as my pick feel like Glenn Close because she's been around. So long performance is great. And then maybe it's like her turn kind of thing. Maybe and, but they did it lady Gaga's gonna keep acting and have another shot seems far-fetched at this point. Right. So is leader thirty. So, but how come Bradley Cooper, gene, get a directing because he did for American sniper? So that's about those are the biggies right there. Yeah. Supporting actor and actress, Marcia Lee who is in green book, I bet you. He wins a second. You don't want to talk about making hairstyling best animated feature. Incredible to come on. I don't know about best editing. The spider verse hairstyling best song song about best picture. Or did. We did that already songs. Best. The song. Okay. What are your choices? I don't see all the stars Black Panther. I'll fight RV g the place where lost things go. Mary. Poppins returns. Shallow. A star is born when a cowboy change Spurs for wings, the ballot BUSTER Scruggs, and that's different from original score original scores of music throughout the movie right songs. I think it'll be almost impossible. For lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper not to win. I think they win. Okay. We're we're out of time. I'll watch part of it. Yeah. It's like a four hour show. Four hours. It's hard to it gets here. It's one of my favorite my favorite nights of the year. I used to always do with my mom. That guy picks. I'm that guy. I have a couple of friends getting together to watch the show. I get it. I mean, if you watch I haven't seen all the movies. I wait to watch him on the Denver Broncos play. Year later used be all the movies. It'll be of several of these. Oh, I gave did your wife end up watching bohemian a couple times guide and really liked.
'Green Book' suffers from Hollywood's Common 'Magical Negro' Problem
"I know we talked about green book Schorr did. But the Oscars are this Sunday. And this will be might win best picture Lord. No Roma please let Roma win. I think we have to talk about it. Because there's one scene that I cannot get out of my mind. Okay. Which one so it's the scene were Tony Villalonga. Who is the Italian American guy from the Bronx who's been hired to drive. Don, Shirley, this black musician, two gigs. Okay. So it's a scene where Tony saves dawn from a bunch of unruly racist at a bar. I mean, I can imagine. What bothered you about that? But why bother you? This scene is meant to teach the audience that the guys that are beating up Don are the real racists. And Tony is kind of like a milk toast racist. He's not that bad of a racist. He's only ever called Don a couple of names behind his back and kind to face and the whole movie up into this point has given you the impression that Tony doesn't like black people. But the moment the movie takes you into the scene in the bar. You understand actually these are the real racist because they're capable of physical violence against someone just because they're black and Tony he's not really a bad guy after all a little bit of needing. He needs a little bit of coaxing. But you know, what he's actually on the right side of things, and you can bring him back over to the right side to the good side of history. And it's inferior eating it's infuriating Wesley. The idea that racism is only bad if it escalates into physical violence, and that's the tiny little microaggressions things that dehumanize. Is and demoralize and stereotype aren't actually really bad types of racism after all, so maybe they get a pass. Right. It feels like a very sanitize seen about racial mix that's designed specifically to make audiences fill better about themselves, and is amazing that you're bringing this up on the weekend of the Academy Awards. Yes. These same Academy Awards in which green book is nominated for five Oscars and is likely to win two or three including picture. Yeah. And you know, it's in company with movies like star is born in the favorite and vice about Dick Cheney, and of course, black klansman and Black Panther, right? Boy, if green book does win it'll be a really good company with the best picture winners of the last thirty years specifically when it comes to films about race, right? I just think America is obsessed with this sort of racial healing fantasy where there is a work that like being near. A black person can do to rehabilitate prejudice people and all that rubbing up against yelling at friction tension touching. Hugging. Driving will bring him to the light. Right. It's its own trope. Yeah. Right. What other films in the past have done this? What are you thinking about? I don't know. I mean, if we're just staying in the in the thirty year window, something like Forrest Gump. Ninety four win best picture ninety five the story of the very simple man name. Forrest Gump mom, always said life was lack of box chocolates sits on a bench and start just talking to anybody who sits down next to him about his his life. Never know what you're going to get. He winds up befriending. This other guy named Bubba Goodall. Bubba good day. You can catch pounds. Shrimp. Shrimp is the fruit of deceit. You can vote ball broad bike it so both have the same IQ. But the point is that force is the person on the journey and a person like Bubba is another step along the way. So one of which puts them on campus when George Wallace's denouncing the integration of university of Alabama. Right. And part of that sequence when Vivian Malone was one of the new black students drops her notebook on the way inside the school, the visual effects, people make it. So that forced picks up the notebook enhance it to Vivian. And it's just weird to me. Like, you realize like that like the movies about forest, not Vivian who? I would say has a much more interesting American story to tell. I country is all about and it isn't the forest gets made a better person because of black people. But it is the forest gets to look scans or not even see a lot of the problems in this country, all of which are shoulder by Jenny who played by Robin rate who is near some Black Panthers who do nothing when she's beaten up by her white piece boyfriend, the racial politics. This movie are crazy anyway, all the politics in this movie to be fair are crazy, but they all sort of benefit for his Gump the fantasy here, of course, if you're good enough and simple enough, America's racial problems can be hailed give this movie a best picture Oscar. Okay. I mean, what else crash best picture winner a two thousand six Lord. A movie. So frightening. The Geno worth refuses to watch it facts facts, only, basically, it's one of these race and racism are driving. Everybody in Los Angeles out of their minds, the Persians the Mexicans the white people the black people, but the thing that really takes me out. His you have all of these different people of different races all being nasty to each other because of race, but guess who the redeemed characters are in this movie. Oh my God. I don't even want to know, Sandra. Bullock, of course, like the second biggest racist in the movie, she gets carjacked, by ludicrous and Lorenzo Tate. Maybe I'm Alexis really tough. My think it'd be best. If you just went upstairs random, wait for them to break in. I just had a gun pointed in my favorite lower. Your voice was my fault. Because I knew it was going to happen. But the white person's he's two black men walking towards her. And she turns and walks in the other direction. She's a racist. Right. Well, I. Got scared, and I didn't say anything attend seconds later. I had a gun in my face. Now. I am telling you you're a Migo in. There is going to sell are key to one of his homes and miss time. It'd be really fucking great. If you acted like you actually gave us shit. And then what happens? She falls down the steps on a lot of pain killers or something. And decides at her Mexican-made Maria is her new best friend. I assume area wants to go home. But you know, we don't know 'cause movies out about Maria. It's about Sandra Bullock, but the real star that movie is Matt Dillon racists cop. Matt Dillon feels up Tandy Newton at a traffic doesn't like black people, but certainly put his hands all over a black woman. So she gets into a horrible car crash cars on fire cast who comes in to save the day. Hear me permissible be your. To get an extinguisher. Good that fire. Best supporting actor nomination for that gentleman. Okay. I'll get you out not Dylan approves he's not a racist because he's capable of saving some black person's life. Even after he's violated it and then driving miss daisy. Of this sort of problem. And it wins. Best picture nineteen ninety came out in eighty nine huge hit. Yeah. Better movie than you think. Actually, because I think it understands the thing that you and I are talking about right? There is something inherently impossible about black people and white people being friends at least, according to the way, the country is set up to like have both those friends be equal in the friendship. So it is a story of this old Jewish woman. Daisy were them. Sorry. This old named daisy were than related I hope. hope Not. not. Our son bully hires Hoke Morgan Freeman to drive her. And home nowhere else.

"klansman" Discussed on The Adam Carolla Show
"But I I saw few and I was disappointed by ones that people said you have to see this right now a star is born was so impactful and such a sweeping amazing. I be really disappointed if they didn't win. Oh. I saw Black Panther black klansman and black guy on the stoop from. It's really a white guy. So I can't vote for him. Black Panther good. But you know, it's a comic book movie. This is a -firmative action. I'm I'm assuming since no other movies, a good one. But they don't nominate. They don't nominate comic book now. So that's a -firmative action. Black klansman was pretty good. But not as good as could've been bohemian rhapsody. I saw which is you know, the music's great and the performance great. But not a very good movie. And I have not seen the rest of them. So I show report back to you. And I am going to go with a stars born based on Brian's enthusiasm for my favorite movie of the year. Even though I didn't RJ. Oh, I'm sorry. How about this for a long shop that what do you think about Sam Elliott for best supporting actor because her Herschel Ali who's the favorite one year or two ago for moonlight? He's been there. He's gotten the the award. Sam Elliott had a great career career. She'd been type thing the Oscars like Tina, sometimes reward that anything about that value bet. I think if you look at a directional odds a star is born is the movie that's dropped the most in the last two months. It was really up there as one of the favorites to win best picture. And now, it's all the way down to ten to one and even with the actors and directors you mentioned, right? You thought for sure that Bradley Cooper should've had at least nomination. So it just feels like politically with to you know, white stars. And you know, it really is an old time seventy story. It's like the guy could have been the Allman brothers. You know, Bradley Cooper. And it just doesn't feel very two thousand nineteen now that doesn't bother. Me. Right. But I think some of the voters it does I will say one thing about that movie. If you don't mind, and I think it speaks to Adam. And and quite frankly, all you guys, you know, think of the things you guys have done that's been the first time. Meaning when Atta made his first movie he dealt with a thousand things that he never dealt with before. And he was willing to grind through them. And that's the only way you're going to be ever do something different or special is you've got to deal with it the first time. And when I look at Bradley Cooper and think this is a guy that looks up to clean Eastwood he wants to emulate his career. And now he wants to start directing like Eastwood, did I think it was yellow Josey wells was I would have been one of those early ones is the idea that he grounds through that as a grinder and made a a minimum of very I think a great.

John Lasseter returns from exile
"KCRW sponsors include Amazon studios, presenting Cold War, named best foreign language film by the national board of review and the New York Film. Critics Circle directed by Oscar winning Pablo Pavlovsky a words eligible in all categories. I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter, and Matt I guess yesterday was a good day for accused sexual harassers who were hoping to make a comeback. John Lasseter who left Disney and Pixar onto the cloud of multiple allegations of inappropriate behavior got a job at sky dance animation the company that is belongs to David Ellison. The son of very very wealthy multi-billionaire. Larry Ellison who gifted his son with a few billion dollars to make movies in Hollywood. Yeah. This is caused a lot of backlash within the animation community and the Hollywood community at large because it is probably the most high profile person to have been. In quote, unquote, metoo out of the business, and now to be back in, and we know that John Lasseter had been shopping himself around for months trying to get meetings with different people. Most of these companies are studios that are owned by publicly traded companies took a pass on him. This seems to be the one place that was open to it. And like you said it is not a public company. It is a private company owned by a billionaire. So the reaction within the community not good. Let me be clear. This was my story. I broke that story. And that is what caused his departure does the immediate cause of the departure from Disney and Pixar John Lasseter is brilliant animator with many storied films. I mean, Toy Story two frozen. Everybody knows this who knows anything about animation. However, this was a bad situation that had been allowed to fester. And while sky dance is a private company funded by private billions, it has a deal with paramount. The amount is not only a public company, but paramount is part of Viacom, which is also the parent of CBS, which has had horrible public problems with horrible sexual worst than sexual harassment allegations. And this is an embarrassment to paramount and a problem and a lot of people paramount is supposed to distribute sky dance animated films. This is a huge problem. Also for paramount. Yeah, we're hearing that people on the paramount lot or really upset about this and word saying, a why don't we just not release them? I don't think that's legally possible. But you know, we had a story in hide reporter today about talking to some female animators, and they are going on the record saying, I will not work at sky dance. If John Lasseter is there. That's a big problem because you know, yes, he's a genius. But what you just not gonna hire women. Are you gonna have all male all-male, animation company forgetting men and women? Like, there's a lot of men who are upset by this. Absolutely. I just don't I don't know when you're in a talent oriented business and talent has strong opinions about the kind of people they work with how do you operate a business? Like this win that's led by such a toxic person. And I will say that, you know. Yes, there has to be a road back. But what John Lasseter did was to issue basically an apology by press. Release a brief statement saying Oops, I really thought this all over and I'm really sorry. If I made people uncomfortable, and that is not the road back. I think we can agree. So we'll see I if sky dance wants to stay the course. But there are women running animation companies. There's a woman running Disney animation. Now co running a woman running paramount animation woman just aimed to run DreamWorks animation. So there is that. Thank you, Matt. That's Matt Bellamy editorial director of the Hollywood reporter.

Yeah, I I was sort of in the same boat, like in the beginning of the movie, I guess the first couple times when something like that happened when a little reference to modern times became, you know, a little bit too overt, I sort it was rolling my eyes, but by the end of the movie and especially with the way the movie ends, I'm not going to give away what that is, but I sort of took a step back in and reconnect realized all of it as like part of a larger message that Spike Lee was trying to get across and the way that he did..
