Emmy Nomination Reactions

"Whenever Niecy Nash is an option I've got to pause a minute and appreciate that she walks among us." - Scott

"Schitt's Creek has managed to outdo just about every other show, comedy or drama, in how it gives its characters genuine life beats to play off, and to then pay off in beautiful (and hilarious) ways." -Manny

"Overall, I'm satisfied with the nominations. A lot of good surprises." - Goodbar

Linky Together

The Awl has a good piece on the metaphorical zombies and in blockbuster cinema
My New Plaid Pants a delightfully unexpected list: 5 tertiary characters from Paul Thomas Anderson movies deserve their own spin-off. I totally forgot about Brad the Bartender with Braces in Magnolia!
Atlantic prompted by all the "legacy" talk of TV after James Gandolfini (RIP) & The Sopranos... "where is the female Tony Soprano?"
HitFix David Chases' full eulogy for James Gandolfini

Coming Soon Sir Ian McKellen has wrapped filming The Hobbit trilogy, never to return to Gandalf the Grey (or White)
In Contention's wondering about Foxcatcher in Sony's Oscar Hopeful slate
Hollywood Vin Diesel meeting with Marvel Studios. Hmmm, I can't really see him as any of the characters mentioned beyond Thanos 
Exploding Actresses on Tumblr. You will cry. Or laugh. Possibly both depending on the movie.
Antagony & Ecstasy has a well thought through piece on Joss Whedon's tossed-off Much Ado About Nothing

Today's Watch
Filmmaker IQ's John Hess on Aspect Ratio in cinema. 18 minutes long but well produced and worth it, if your understanding of Aspect Ratio is, like mine, limited to Almost Squares vs Various Shaped Rectangles and trivia knowledge of gimmicks like "Cinerama." Watch it, it's Edumucational!

The Changing Shape of Cinema: The History of Aspect Ratio from FilmmakerIQ.com on Vimeo.

 

Belated Tony
Filmsploitation Check out this wonderful photo and quote from cinematographer Christopher Doyle about set photography and the making of Wong Kar Wai's Happy Together (1997) which I had just been thinking of for no apparent reason (since I used a different photo for The Film Experience on Facebook... a page you should obviously "like", duh)

And while we're on the subject... Happy (belated) birthday to Tony Leung Chiu Wai (Lust Caution, In the Mood for Love, Hero), our favorite Asian movie star who celebrated his 51st yesterday. His wife Carina Lau posted this picture of him eating cake. 

You missed the thumb Tony. Let me get that for you...

I'm so glad you included the Exploding Actresses link. Exploding Disney Princesses made me laugh so hard tea came out of my nose. Inelegant, but true!

I literally just spent ten minutes at my desk laughing my ass off at that exploding actresses tumblr - mostly the Disney princesses video. PERFECTION. It would be the best thing I've seen all week were it not for that History of Aspect Ratio video, which I caught earlier this week and thought was brilliant. Required viewing for all film lovers.

Last term I took an Intro to Chinese film course and one of the films we viewed was Happy Together. After I watched it I was haunted by the film for a good week. Such beautiful and visceral performances by Tony and Leslie. So excited that you're thinking about the film too! And your facebook cover photo has been my iPhone wallpaper for weeks now...ha!
