Directors Who Were Far More Worthy Winners
Last night Tom Hooper won the Oscar for Best Director or as I now call it the “Rich People’s Choice Award For Favourite Director”. No disrespect to Hooper but he didn’t deserve it one bit because nothing was innovative or spectacular about his work in “The King’s Speech”. Here’s a list of directors who were more impressive last year, some who were...
Oscars: Highs and Lows
Highs: Christian Bale: the press hate him, his colleagues respect him. You don’t need love in this industry. He delivered a very touching and humble speech and even mde fun of the infamous “Terminator Incident”. Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross winning Best Score for “The Social Network”: the Academy rewarded a modern electronic score over classical music, thought...

charlotte-charles: I LOVE this fandom and I love this movie and I’ve been stanning it for FIVE MONTHS. That’s why this sucks. That and the fact this, ESPECIALLY director, was a bunch of Weinstein politics. I want to be happy and I’m sorry for being butthurt. I just feel so worthless for having loved this movie so…
gwenstasty: Brokeback Mountain didn’t win. The Pianist didn’t win. Saving Private Ryan didn’t win. Pulp Fiction didn’t win. The Graduate didn’t win. Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? didn’t win. Cat On A Hot Tin Roof didn’t win. 12 Angry Men didn’t win. A Streetcar Named Desire didn’t win. Citizen Kane didn’t win.

It's "their time" too
Colin Firth is going to win Best Actor on Sunday because he is amazing in “The King’s Speech” and also because everyone feels it’s about time an actor who has delivered solid work for about 2 decades should finally be awarded with acting’s top honor. Same for Annette Bening, although Natalie Portman remains the favorite there are murmurs that she may take top prize...
The past few days I’ve been scrambling to watch all the Oscar nominated movies so it was quite refreshing to get that over with and watch a fun comedy. I needed that especially after “Blue Valentine”. “Morning Glory” is a good film and it makes me wonder what the Hollywood Foreign Press Association were thinking when they nominated Angelina Jolie for Best Actress...

Looking at it from a different angle
Most “Social Network” haters point out that the reason it shouldn’t win Best Picture on Sunday is that is it isn’t a happy crowd pleaser. Supporters of “The King’s Speech” feel that’s what makes it a superior film. Sorry but that doesn’t make any sense, a good film is a good film. I don’t recall “Midnight Cowboy”, “The...
“Game of Thrones” looks so good. I can’t wait for it to start
kellyoxford: Whenever you feel inferior to Paltrow or Pitt. Remember they used to be fuck partners with matching hair. And that was their most stylish moment together. (before jeans cost $200- THE 1900’s!!!)

Oscar Predictions for Major Categories
I think the Guilds & BAFTA results have made it pretty clear who’ll come out tops come Oscar night. I’m putting them in 2 categories. Would win: person who the Academy would reward & should win: the person who’s better and more deserving in my opinion. Best Picture Would Win: The King’s Speech: classy crowd pleasing period drama is a really good film but by no...
Slept On Movies Of 2010
These are in no particular order 10 films I really like but for some reason didn’t do well at the box office or didn’t get that much critical recognition and weren’t nominated for any Oscars. By no means are these my best films of 2010 but they are some pretty good films that you might not have seen or even heard of but should check out Catfish. The other Facebook movie last...

Slept On Albums Of 2010
Some records that didn’t achieve much mainstream success and in some cases critical acclaim but deserve to be checked out: Bud, Sweat and Beers- Devlin While Tinie Tempah was deservedly the breakout British rapper last year 21 year old rapper Devlin delivered a great album beyond his years commenting on growing up in London, love, general problems and current affairs. His storytelling...

The Academy Award for Best Documentary feature is a category that guarantees quality nominees and winners, in some cases even better than the Best Picture category. This year the two leading contenders are “Inside Job” which is about the global financial crisis and the men who were responsible for it & “Exit Through The Gift Shop” a film by Banksy about the emergence...
I saw The Social Network for the fourth time yesterday and the film just gets better and better. I’ve already accepted that it won’t win Best Picture at the Oscars but it still hurts that the daft shallow members of The Academy would reward The King’s Speech. Anyway enough of that, I wanna talk about the impact and performance of Rooney Mara in the film. Although she featured in...
