    Ultra early 2019 Oscar tracking???

    & saw where this is the very first time the Golden Razzie's will be on tv Sure she's not fond of it, but it's champ is MADONNA with 5 wins, she never accepted any of them though
  2. MI know what your thinkin' it's still far too premature to predict the possible leading contenders for THE 92nd ANNUAL ACADEMY AWARDS (AMPAS) But believe it or not many sites have started & weeks ago. So I'd join-in & have some fun forecasting who and what may be in THE GOLDEN RACE??? Besides it's always been more fun for this pundit to predict the noms VS actual winners Marks my 38th year handicapping (NOTE: Of course all subject to change this early, but per usual it can be a great comment post & give fans a shot at listing what new releases may be nommed this year?) 2019 OSCARS-(Don't know if its going to make the end of this yr but the brand new AMPAS headquarters & library-(looks like something out if Blade Runner or Star Wars & cost $338m) was listed fir almot a year as opening) BEST PICTURE-(will likely be 8 to 10 again)??? *-denotes poss early leader? Downton Abbey-(may well earn most nods.) Ford vs. Ferrari Harriet *The Irishman* The Joker Little Women The Marriage Story *1917* *Once Upon a Time in Hollywood* & The Two-Popes BEST ACTOR??? Christian Bale in Ford vs Ferrari Leonardo Di Caprio, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Adam Driver, Marriage Story *Jaoquin Phoenix, The Joker-(BLOW OUT!) & Jonathan Pryce, The Two-Popes BEST ACTRESS??? *Cynthia Erivo, Harriett Scarlett Johanssen, Marriage Story Saoirse Ronan, Little Women Alfre Woodward , Clemency & *Renee Zellweger, Judy SUPPORTING ACTOR??? Willem Dafoe in The Lighthouse *Tom Hanks in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood Anthony Hopkins, The Two-Popes *Al Pacino, the Irishman Brad Pitt, Once Upon a time in Hollywood SUPPORTING ACTRESS??? *Annette Bening in The Report *Laura Dern, Marriage Story Margot Robbie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Maggie Smith, Downton Abbey-(somene just tipped me to thus revised prediction!) & Meryl Streep in Little women-(will mark her already record by far #22nd) & BEST DIRECTOR??? Greta Gerwig for Little Women James Mangold, Ford vs. Ferrari *Sam Mendes, 1917* *Martin Scorsese for The Irishman* *Quentin Tarentino for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood* Love covering motion picture scores but again too early THANK YOU (OSCAR ALERT: Hollywood as most know always adored costume dramas, so don't underestimate Downton Abbey & of course The Two Popes) & official nominees to be announced January 13th, 2020 & Oscars scheduled to be presented on Feb. 9th once again at The Dolby Theatre on Hollywood, Blvd (680l H. Blvd) AKA: Hollywood & Highland I've seen all the poss BP contenders trailers, trust me a few are very strong man, they are really hiding THE IRISHMAN? Of them The Irishman, Joker, Ford vs. Ferrari may be the most powerful to date & I feel it me duty to go & see-(likely next February) The Two-Pope's, due to me rating *Hopkins 5th all-time finest actor yet

    Ultra early 2019 Oscar tracking???

    Jake, if you check out my very early 2019 Oscar tally sheet, I had all these listed a month ago But some revisions of course need to be made Two-Popes just bleeds Oscar bait as far as nominations go & there might be some given this era that find JoJo rabbit offensive? I kinda liked Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (**1/2 at best) but most pundits have that in a big nomination way But, right now THE IRISHMAN appears to be the leader momentum wise Many calling it one of the greatest ever made Phoenix is a lock to win despite backlash for the film I thought it great yet staggeringly depressing Watch for it to land the most overall noms by far 11 or more & Zellweger seems to have lost much hoopla already, plus already winning Watch for Cynthia Erivo in Harriet & They have been dying to give both Scorsese & Pacino 2nd statuettes for years now
  5. I know Jakeem always covers the annual film awards, but they start next week, is he off these boards?
  6. Watching Naked and the Dead again Aldo ray per usual steals the show, who else thinks he was underrated? From Pat & Mike, Battle Cry & others he was always dependable
  7. I saw *Lawrence of Arabia a few weeks ago on the silver-screen & plan to also see *GFI on November 1st as pt of TCM's Fathom Series, but what films would you most want to go & see on THE SILVER-SCREEN? As they say it s quite a different experience then seeing something on tv I've been lucky enough over 38yrs to be able to go and see about 15 classic old movies-(to me old is 20 to 25yrs) like a car Even the mt. summit & at thee ultimate theatre The Tampa Theatre-(Est 1926-) even has an old, old guy playing he mighty Wurlitzer on stage, he died & his daughter immediately picked up the mantle The move of course was KANE in 1995 & have been back there 4 more times, it's even fancier then Grauman's in Hollywood as far as Movie Palaces go So what films do you fans most want to see someday in such a theatre, or even a normal one? THANK YOU

    Awards season 2019-2020

    this year the critics may split with Oscar again, they tend to like smaller flix where is the academy likes big Biggest question of it all is how well THE IRISHMAN will do?

    Awards season 2019-2020

  10. To Jakeem, see you are back, when you can can you post the annual film awards dates-(pre Oscars)? Lost my list
  11. jakeem, can you post all the annual film awards
  12. HEY Jakeem, longtime no hear from, aren't the NYFCC on Nov 3rd?
  13. Just in time as well New York Critics I think are Nov 3rd
  14. Sundowners is just great, he liked Heaven Knows Mr. Allyson best of his 97 flix though
  15. Eraserhead is without a doubt all-time weirdest motion picture by anyone
  16. also saw The Shining in a theatre at about age 16
  17. Think he was also a GP Guest Programmer once
  18. He & Bill 0'reilly used to have a running stage show Though I think it's cool to have him on here
  19. It's very, vey interesting to see this show though & a must for moviefans & all looking forward to The Irishman as usual Scorsese does most of the talking, he's always been speedy But Pesci does not look well and 10yrs older
  20. Just finally caught this last night but to all interested on youtube-(I think) is a rare talk with most involved on the making of the upcoming epic The Irishman Scorsese, De Niro, Pacino & a very ill looking Joe Pesci I know he's 76, but just doesn't want to be there plus looks physically ill right now Anyone notice this about Pesci yet?
  21. I've said bogdanovich should he a host about a year now though
  22. Nobody seems to mention this but to TopBilled on your ongoing message board digest It's always there & dependable
  23. That's the one, just had This Gun for Hire today Does anybody ever say anything?
