The 15:17 to Paris 2.) 1985 3.) Super Troopers 2 4.) Adam
  3. Best: All the love for the year’s best movie, Roma, with the two acting noms for unknowns being a delightful and deserved surprise. America’s finest living screenwriter, Paul Schrader, finally getting an Oscar nom. One of America’s best working directors, Spike Lee, finally getting a Director nom. The Favourite overperforming on expectations and getting noms for all its outstanding actresses as well as Director, Cinematography, and Original Screenplay. Pawel Pawlikowski’s stunning work on Cold War besting Bradley Cooper, Ryan Coogler, and especially Peter Farrelly’s perfunctory dire

  5. Final 2017 Oscar Predictions. Each section follows the same formula: first group is who I think will be nominated, in order of likelihood, then who I think has the best chance to upset, then the final group is who would be a surprise but not an entirely unexpected one. We’ll see early tomorrow morning how close this is. BEST PICTURE The Shape of Water Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri Lady Bird Dunkirk Get Out The Post Call Me By Your Name The Big Sick The Florida Project (if there are 9) Serious Possibilities: I, Tonya Mudbound Phantom Thread Molly

  7. Good thread idea. Is the exclusion of short films just for this pre-1920s round to keep out very short, proto-movie stuff like A Trip to the Moon or that will be in effect throughout? I ask because many of my all-time favorites, including the best work from some foreign masters like Alain Resnais, Rene Clair, Joris Ivens, Albert Lamorisse, etc., are short films and I’m not sure the benefit of ghettoizing them with disqualification. 1.) The Outlaw and His Wife (1918) Victor Sjostrom, Sweden 2.) Sir Arne's Treasure (1919) Mauritz Stiller, Sweden 3.) J'Accuse! (1919) Abel Gance

  10. I understand this thinking and even agree with it if the lists are undifferentiated. "Here are my 100 favorites movies of the year or female performances in alphabetical order" isn't of much use to me. I can't imagine the 99th out of that list is all that worthy but can't determine what it is vs. the #2 choice. But skimpole and JamesStewartFan95 separates out their top 5, Bogie and I rank and separate our top 10 from any honorable mentions, and Lawrence's lists are in preferential order. With the exception I guess of CinemaInternational (who may also list in preferential order, I'm just not su

  13. I thought nothing of it when I saw it on your list, a simple typo or mistake, but I've always assumed you're just copying and pasting the winners from various festivals and critics bodies here. Do you retype each one or did you go in and manually change each instance of "Idris" to "Indris" from pasted lists? I couldn't figure that one out.
