What did YOU see this weekend?

 

Elle. Basically the same movie as The Piano Teacher but sillier. Huppert is great, but when is she not? -Jonathan

The Edge of Seventeen because I needed something light and fun. So delightful, and anchored by a wonderful Hailee Steinfeld performance. - Marina

TRIVIA. yes, it's true. This is the only acting lineup ever at the Oscars where every single nominee has previously won the prize. It's Oscar number 2 (or 3) for one of them

Snubbed? Those five men were all strong in precursors but if you're speaking artistically it's bonafide horrifying to cite the list of electric performances that weren't even considered since this field of Oscar winners all locked up early (but for Waltz, a late category fraud arrival). But Javier Bardem (Skyfall), Leo DiCaprio (Django) and Matthew McConaughey all had infrequent mentions during the season and all looked at least semi-plausible.
