  1. Unfortunately the list has become, over the last several years, a slog of PC and corporate tie-in entries. The board that votes on this is made up of industry insiders. The actual meetings are top secret (that tells you a lot right there) and although they ask for the public to vote for films to be inducted, I doubt these votes are seriously considered. Ultimately, the lists are about exclusion as much as they are about inclusion.
  2. Terrible cover art.... and who might the three women be? No film credits on the front cover? The stars are Pauline Frederick, May McAvoy, and Marie Prevost.
  3. Another question is where are the hundreds of old cement slabs with stars' imprints stored away? The ones in the courtyard now are only a handful of all the slabs made. I assume if the Chinese Theater is torn down for apartments (or whatever) the courtyard will be gone also.... Why weren't any of the slabs incorporated into the new Academy Film Museum?
  4. Tearing down Grauman's Chinese Theater? Is this for real? https://www.hollywoodheritage.org/...
  5. Even in the Guest Actor category, SEINFELD was hysterically underrated. Only six actors ever got nominated and none of them won: Lloyd Bridges as Izzy Jerry Stiller as Frank Larry Thomas as the Soup Nazi Marlee Matlin as the tennis linesman Judge Reinhold as the close talker Bill Erwin as the Old Man Other notable characters like Philip Baker Hall as the library cop, Elmarie Wendel as the Three Stooges actress, Megan Cole as the germophobe, Charles Levin as the mohel, Mark Metcalf as the Maestro, etc never got recognized. And while Jerry Seinfeld and Jas
  6. Yes I think that's true. I guess that's so the voters don't have to watch whole shows or seasons....
  7. My guess is that many of the "again?" Emmy awards are based on who's who rather than the merit of the show. Just like high school, there are little cliques of off-camera folks who are "in" and win all the awards. You might win a grudging nomination, but you ain't gonna win. I assume the repetitive favoritism continues but I don't follow most of these awards any more....
  8. SEINFELD should certainly have won for best series more than once. 92 lost to MURPHY BROWN 93 WINNER 94 lost to FRASIER 95 lost to FRASIER 96 lost to FRASIER 97 lost to FRASIER 98 lost to FRASIER also worth noting that CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM has never won for best comedy series.
  9. Mort Sahl once quipped that he was actually a very likable guy who made ex-friends easily. LOL
  10. A comic genius. In his heyday he'd walk out onto a stage with a newspaper and riff on what he read: politics, religion, sex, Hollywood, whatever. It was all fair game. Not as jokey as Jackie Mason or Bob Newhart. He eventually rubbed everyone the wrong way and was proud of it.
  11. Hitchcock wanted to call the film THE MAN IN LINCOLN'S NOSE.... but I think he may have been kidding.
  12. IMO and it's only mine.... looking at photos posted online, the museum looks mostly like an airport what with gigantic hallways with nothing more than big "art" on the concrete walls. Yes there are displays and maybe photography is prohibited in those areas..... But this sure looks a lot like the Denver airport last time I was there.....
  13. Would love to see the response. Hopefully the museum has lots of apolitical exhibits......
  14. Screening on HBO at https://www.justwatch.com/us/movie/little-old-new-york
  15. This is apparently part of the display for NORTH BY NORTHWEST at the new film museum. While this sort of information/opinion is interesting, it has no place in a film museum (IMO) that's supposedly celebrating film. From what I've heard from others who have visited, the museum is filled with little PC nuggets like this..... Your thoughts?
  16. Tragic...... bad article doesn't seem to know the difference between MEXICO and NEW MEXICO
  17. Tracy and Hepburn were beards..... LOL
  18. Total no..... Vivian Vance played by an Hispanic? Four total originals .... they cannot be copied and I always find Kidman annoying.
  19. A TCM premiere of a restoration of an important silent film and Marion Davies has still never been Star of the Month.
  20. Bette Midler's THE ALLERGIST'S WIFE is also no longer listed as being in pre-production. Another project goes DOA.
  21. and probably scrapped https://www.movieinsider.com/m19086/the-great-escapers
