REVIEW - Last Christmas

"Just saw a 7:00pm Thursday night show in Los Angeles. As flawed/imperfect as the film is, its quite winning due in a large part to some heavy lifting by Emilia Clarke. She’s got a real Sandra Bullock/Julia Roberts star power on full display here.-HardyofHearing

My heart can't take the stress of worrying about Glenn.

All 24 will be shown!!

February 15, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterJorge

Glenn looks so amazing. Her hairdresser deserves an award.

February 15, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterMikey67

It’s okay, Scottie – most of us hate you, too. ;)

Gatta a is great, what was the bad jude law movie?

February 15, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterAnonny

Imagine if Regina King would’ve been knocked out a week before the oscars! Lol. Very scary!!

February 15, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterDAVID

Honestly, I'd rather have Meg Ryan win Best Actress than Jessica Tandy.

February 15, 2019 | Unregistered Commenterthevoid99

I wouldn't call Gattaca great, and I also wouldn't call Talented Mr. Ripley bad, but I just want to check to make sure the majority agree Gattaca is indeed the better movie, because I thought Ripley was kind of becoming a cult classic, but it really isn't as good as Gattaca.

February 15, 2019 | Unregistered Commentershawshank

Can people stop bashing Jessica Tandy? The best part of the announcement is seeing Jessica Lange turn her head at hearing her first name.

February 15, 2019 | Unregistered Commenter/3rtful

Ripley > Gattaca

Both are great.

February 15, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterArkaan

Sigh, you hoes never learn... TANDY4EVA

February 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterLola

Jessica Tandy couldn't have "robbed"both of them unless he expects they would've tied. Which is highly unlikely.

February 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterBruno

@Jorge- Yes! When we bring our voices together we can make changes for good!

February 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Glessner

oh! its talented mr ripley?

Gattaca is brilliant (but not a masterpiece). Mr. Ripley’s cast is astoundingly good but the film is a hard watch so not great at all but damn, that cast.

February 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterAnonny

I only know Joel Embiid for bugging Rihanna, and THEN he almost kicks Regina King in the face?? Make better life choices, sir.

February 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterMJ

I’ll repeat myself: Jessica Tandy should’ve had the chance to transfer her Blanche DuBois from stage to screen and won an Oscar in 1952, but she still deserved it for DMD. (If Meryl hadn’t stolen the role of Sister Aloysius from Cherry Jones for DOUBT’s film adaptation, Kate Winslet still wouldn’t have a Leading Actress Oscar.) FYC: STOP denying the stage originators the chance to immortalize their roles on film!

February 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterRyan Crowe

Hmm not sure on the Cherry think unfortunately :/

February 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterSettle your Kettle

@3rtful: do not worry, Your Heart Will Go On.

February 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterRob

Also Glenn's got it, so chill. Save your suspense for Supporting Actress (Still likely King). It's a year of "But what if's" that end up gong with who were annointed as front runners early on in the season.

February 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterRob

Yeah, that Jude Law tweet is off. Both Gattaca and Ripley are great movies.

February 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterSuzanne

Close looks soooo Glennmorous w her upswept hair, statement earrings n chic llack gown w silver embellishments!! 😁

February 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterClaran

Meg Ryan was at the peak o her popularity circa When Harry Met Sally, I'm v shock tt Miss American Sweetheart missed the nom!! I guess romantic comedy wasn't being taken as Oscar worthy back then?!

I believe Adjani took her spot!

February 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterClaran

RE: John Bailey. My latest (jokey) theory is that this is all Bailey’s revenge for the Academy completely ignoring Groundhog Day in 1993. “Don’t want to nominate one of the great screen comedies for Original Screenplay, let alone Best Actor, Editing, Directing or Picture? I’ll burn this place to the ground!”

February 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterGraham Greenlee

I wouldn't say Meg was at her peak in 89,I was 13 then and had only seen her in Top Gun,this was the role she really got noticed for,Meg's peak was 93 - 98 and indeed this film should have gotten her a nod as should her 94 role in When a man loves a Woman.

Get your Meg facts correct and never diss Julia.

February 16, 2019 | Unregistered Commentermarkgordonuk

Nathaniel, just read an article in The New York Times where they polled 20 random Academy members about their thoughts on the Best Picture race but the author revealed that ALL 20 voted for Rami Malek. Ugh, it's really happening.

February 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterMichael R

That NYT profile is a welcome burst of Meg Ryan appreciation.

Oscar made space for so many iconic rom com performances (Working Girl, Broadcast News, Pretty Woman, Moonstruck, Peggy Sue Got Married) during the late 80s-early 90s that Ryan's Sally definitely deserved to be among them.

February 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterHayden

LOL. Would love for Meryl to be in the new Eichner/Apatow movie!

February 16, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterJamie

@Michael R - it is definitely happening, and I don't understand it. Malek struggles mightily against those false teeth, and loses. I don't think he even got the speaking voice and accent right, let alone how hard you can see the wheels turning in Malek's head - the musical performances seem calculated, instead of capturing the brilliance of Mercury, who made it seem like the performance just flowed out of him, and there were points in the movie where Malek made Mercury seem so functionally stupid that he struggled to speak words aloud.

February 17, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterRebecca

Ryan Crowe, actors don't own roles, unless they wrote the play/script themselves. Even then there are some autobiographical one person shows I'd like to see the leads traded out for other performers.
