Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Feb 18, 2019

So it’s time again, time to clench my teeth, hoping you don’t screw up, Academy. Don’t blow it, like you did with Thelma Ritter. Don’t blow it, like you did with Barbara Stanwyck. Don’t blow it, like you did with Cary FRICKIN Grant, the only classic movie star so many n read more

Kimmel & the Great Gaffe: Why Comedians MUST Host the Oscars

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Feb 28, 2017

Here’s the typical Oscar hosting scenario: Year 1: A comedian hosts, performs well and with confidence, then is trashed in the press. Year 2: The Academy chooses an actor/actors for the hosting gig. The script fails; the actor (not being a writer) panics and keeps trying the script anyway/hide read more

FYI: The best way to read this article is to scroll to the bottom of the page and hit the full screen button (the button with four arrows pointi read more

Gut Reactions to the Oscar Noms: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Jan 24, 2017

Oscar nominations are out, and as usual, my first reaction is outrage. But there are some good choices in the supporting category, so I’ll tone down some initial snark, and try to give credit where it’s due. So far, I’ve seen only four of the nominated films, so I’ll wait til read more

The Oscar (1966, Russell Rouse)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Aug 27, 2016

The Oscar is a spectacular kind of awful. It’s the perfect storm of content, casting and technical ineptitude. Director Rouse probably doesn’t have a single good shot in the entire film. It might not even be possible with Joseph Ruttenberg’s photography and the maybe studio televi read more

SHOCKER: The Oscar Ceremony Was Good

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Feb 29, 2016

For the first time in at least a decade, I actually thought the Oscars were entertaining and even well planned. That there were some smart tweaks–the order change (with more exciting awards earlier), the ticker-tape names at the bottom so that the speeches were less listy and long winded. And read more

The Oscar Snub No One Is Talking about: Ralph Fiennes in The Grand Budapest Hotel

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Jan 22, 2015

I know everyone is busy discussing the Selma Oscar snubs and Jennifer Aniston’s supposed one. The former film I haven’t seen yet, and Cake I won’t. Only when I scrolled through long lists of snubs would I find Ralph Fiennes, as if the omission of his name were insignificant, perhaps expected. read more
