I think I would still vote for Phantom Thread as the best film of 2018 myself.

I was hoping this was going to be the remake to the nearly excellent Debra Winger/Theresa Russell film.

Wonder if the nod for Washington in BlacKkKlansman will translate to more later on. I like his performance quite a bit, but aside from the phone calls, its heavy on deadpanning and not very showy, the kind of thing I don't think normally gets such recognition.

PGA nominations mean that Bohemian Rhapsody and Vice are likely going to get Best Picture nominations

Bohemian Rhapsody and Green Boom dominate the Golden Globes

At least Olivia Colma, Roma, and Justin Hurwitz won.

fter The WGA’s it’s looking like Black Panther might actually get a screenplay nomination

The ACE Eddies Nominations for this year

2019 Art Director’s Guild nominations

Roma and Cold War break through at the American Society of Cinematography’s nominations

I didn't watch the Globes, but it doesn't look impressive. I'm not sure why Bohemian Rhapsody is less of a musical than Vice is a comedy, but whatever.

I'm still apprehensive about Green Book, but, who knows? It wouldn't be the first film botched by an awful trailer, if that turned out to be the case. It still looks a bit too baity for me.

Probably the dumbest laugh of the night was actually this morning when the Church of Satan thanked Christian Bale for his praise. Because, as you know, sarcasm is dead in our social media world and everyone is an idiot.

It's a real shame Anton LaVey didn't live to see Twitter. He was born to troll.

2019 BAFTA nominations

Looks like Beale Street is going the way of Carol this year. Maybe it can pull a CMBYN style performance. It is pretty cool seeing two foreign directors in the Best Director category.

Also, it will be interesting to see if Green Book survives the stories that have arises about Peter Farrelly flashing people back in the 90’s and co-writer Nick Vallelonga agreeing with Trump’s claim that New Jersey Muslims cheered when the towers fell on 9/11. Granted, Farrelly apologized, but whether his apology is enough is up for debate.

Um. I may have "flashed my penis as a joke during the 90s" a couple of times. It was a long decade. Maybe some light...streaking, as well. I hope you can find a place in your hearts to welcome my regret.

Only the Critics House Awards would be so shameless as to award three of the Best Actress frontrunners to maximize their reputation for prescience.

Infinity War and Ready Player One lead the VES nominations

Green Book wins at the PGA’s

I think Green Book is edging out A Star is Born as the premier baity frontrunner of the season. I don’t want to make judgements on it yet since I haven’t seen it, but I can’t help but feel disappointed at the possibility of it winning when we have a chance at seeing a foreign film win Best Picture for once.

Who knows, though? Maybe Tuesday will bring us some surprises.

The Razzies pull that same going they did with the Bush Administration and nominate politicians/their associates in the acting categories. Also, Gotti, Holmes and Watson, and The Happytime Murders dominate the nominations

The "All Gold Canyon" and "The Gal Who Got Rattled" segments are based on short stories.
That begs the question: since the other stories are original, will they only get a third of the trophy if they win?

It's a crime that Ethan Hawke was snubbed for First Reformed. That's the performance I'll remember from 2018.

Post Re: Award Season In Hell

So many films I haven't gotten a chance to see yet - The Favorite, Cold War, At Eternity's Gate, If Beale Street Could Talk. I'm sure some of you could recommend a torrent or two (and by all means).

And there are a couple of films (ahem...Green Book, A Star is Born) that I'm avoiding like kale & coconut cupcakes at some kind of twisted vegan first communion reception for my nephew (who ain't touching them either, it seems).

But it still feels very weak this year. Personally, I'd have added a lot more attention to some of the better films I've seen - Buster Scruggs, Sisters Brothers, You Were Never Really Here, Eighth Grade - but no matter how much I shake it out, Other Side of the Wind is still on top.
