This is a fun fun batch. Say what you will about Trump but he is comedy gold and when he's gone and deleted from history, we'll always have that time where he brought out the best humor in all of us.

Where is Annette on your Oscar radar now ?

October 8, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJoseph

Joseph -- right where she is the on the chart! an extremely worthy nominee but it's a tight race. we'll see if one of the expected five gets knocked off for Meryl or Amy (both good this year and we know Oscar loves them in huge amounts) or if Huppert fans rally and if so who she displaces.

My Oscar wishlist (wiin) - Annette > Isabelle > Viola > Emma > whoever in the last spot.

Could Bening go supporting like Tapkey says? Is it category fraud?

October 8, 2016 | Unregistered Commentercal roth

Cal -- i mean, she's top billed and it's about the mother & son so it seems crass to me. but in some ways it's very much an ensemble picture so they *might* be able to get away with it.

Can we as the gay community rise above immediately attacking someone for being politically independent, we live in a democracy and are the supposed leaders of the free world but have a mob mentality anytime someone breaks from what's expected-even if what's expected seems to be common sense and decent like not allowing trump to become president-We should champion people for even being politically engaged especially when it's a voice that could highlight the diversity in marginalized groups like the LGBTQ community .
