2020 Oscar Predictions

Today is the day! I am already on record that I disagree with a large portion of the nominees this year, so this is more of a reluctant task than in years past. I cannot grasp how we have had a year in film as strong as the one we had and yet we continueContinue reading “2020 Oscar Predictions”

The Case for “Avengers: Endgame” Getting a Best Picture Oscar Nomination

I really do not mean to patronize anybody with this post but I have been giving “fringe” candidates a platform to make their case for Oscar nominations, and it seems that I have been presented with yet another worthy candidate.

(I should say that this idea is not my original thought and if youContinue reading “The Case for Robert Downey Jr. Getting an Oscar Nomination”

10 Guaranteed Future Oscar Winners

Here is a life lesson for all the young and impressionable kids out there: Things are only worth doing if you get rewarded for them. It is basic logic. Why would you do anything that doesn’t offer you something in return? That’s just an inefficient use of your time and energy. And everyone knows theContinue reading “10 Guaranteed Future Oscar Winners”

2019 Oscars Reaction

That was certainly an interesting night. Well, actually it was really drawn-out and boring (as is tradition). But the results were pretty interesting, right? I know this may be a shock to anyone reading this, but I have opinions about those results.
