"Yay my walk to school just got a whole lot better" - Adam

"Bergman, Nicholson, and Streep (2 Lead, 1 Supporting). I think Denzel Washington has more than earned his seat at the table." - /3rtful

"Interesting that Nick thinks that Gosling could win. I wouldn't vote for La La Land in many categories, but I would vote for him. For me, the film's appeal rests with its stars. " - Suzanne

Curio: Philip's Creations

Alexa here. Like Amir, I can't see past the loss of Philip Seymour Hoffman this week.  We'd become complacent about his greatness: his presence was one you counted on to keep returning, to keep elevating everything he touched.  I am so glad that I flew to New York just to see him perform with John C. Reilly in the revival of Sam Shepard's True West in 2000; he was, predictably, a dynamo.  While immersing myself in written tributes I've also sought out visual ones; here are some that celebrate a few touchstones in his too-brief career.
