How had i never seen... Enter the Dragon

"A action movie classic" - Jaragon

"Honestly, I saw Kentucky Fried Movie -- which ends with a long parody of this film -- about 5-10 years before I got around to seeing Enter the Dragon itself. I remember so much more about [the former]". -James

Podcast: Final Oscar Predictions

with Nathaniel R and Murtada Elfadl and special reccuring guest Nick Davis


With the Oscar on Sunday night, you'd better hurry and listen to this 65 minute podcast as it will self destruct in less than 72 hours. We kid, we kid. You'll still be able to make fun of our faulty crystal balls since we spend one hour making bold and not-so bold predictions as to who will win in 21 Oscar categories (minus the shorts). Hear us panic about how many Oscars Bohemian Rhapsody might win, and whether First Man might surprise with multiple wins, and will Roma really take the most statues?

You can listen to the podcast here at the bottom of the post or download from iTunesContinue the conversations in the comments, won't you?

I wish this was a video so you could all have seen Nick's perfect recreation of Rachel Weisz' beaming wave in response to "ma bitches."

Predictions: Roma, Cuaron, Close, Malek, Ali, Weisz,, Blackkk, Can You, Diane Warren over Shallow, RBG, the show will be 3 hours and 15 min long but people will still complain it went on too long, many Twitter users will complain Black Panther should have won BP, it'll have the worst ratings ever, they'll blame low ratings on not having a host along with Roma winning BP because it's not "popular" enough, they will award "Best Popular Film" next year but rename the category, someone from E! will say something horrible, several winners will thank the Academy for airing their award while chastising them for trying to not air the award live (first time will get standing ovation), Babs introduces Best Picture but fumbles with envelope.

Watched Roma again last night, this time giving it my almost undivided attention. You guys, we should be excited about this incredible film winning! It's not perfect, but nothing was. Not even The Favourite.

My choices:
Editing - The Favourite
Documentary - MINDING THE GAP
Animation - don't really care, maybe Incredibles 2 since it's the only one I saw
Sound Mixing - Roma
Sound Editing - Roma
Visual Effects - First Man is the only one I've seen or intend to see, so that
Original Score - If Beale St. (haven't seen Mary Poppins)
Song - Shallow I guess. Lady Gaga deserves music Oscars.
Foreign - ROMA
Cinematography - CUARON
Costume Design - THE FAVOURITE
Production Design - THE FAVOURITE
Makeup - I'm thinking BORDER but I haven't seen it yet. Not impressed much with the other 2.
Animated short - They're all either dumb or sappy, but Late Afternoon
Live short - haven't seen 4 of them
Documentary short - END GAME (Black Sheep was good too)
Adapted screenplay - CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?
Original screenplay - THE FAVOURITE
Supporting Actress - King (Stone if disregarding prior win and fraud)
Supporting Actor - GRANT
Actress - oh maybe GLENN CLOSE?
Actor - Cooper
Director - Lanthimos
Picture - The Favourite

I'm guessing you guys recorded this before those shocking WGA wins. Because of that, I'm leaning toward The Favourite winning Original Screenplay. The fact that Green Book couldn't win WGA tells me maybe it's not as strong there as we thought (yes, it won the Golden Globe, but the Globe Screenplay winner hasn't won a Screenplay Oscar in the last three years, so maybe that trend will continue for at least one more year)... it also worries me when it comes to BlacKkKlansman winning Adapted Screenplay, which I'm still predicting, but no longer sure about.

I loved that you discussed Best Actress last. In my home country, the Philippines, awards shows ALWAYS present Best Actress as the last award, preceded by Picture and Actor - which I think ultimately made me an actressexual (that and the Bridges of Madison County).

The Favourite for the win!

Been avoiding the rest of the Oscarsnet since BAFTA but I'm not surprised that Colman is gaining some steam. It was inevitable, despite people passing off the BAFTAs as a "national treasure" thing. I'm going to spend the next couple of days consoling myself that Glenn will have another shot at this in the future if she loses. We need to kick the overdue narrative into fucking overdrive if she does, because she deserves to win at some point.

February 22, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterBruno

I too think Colman might win in the end.

February 22, 2019 | Unregistered Commentermarkgordonuk

Bruno -- i think this is it for her, sadly. I know everyone still hopes she'll do sunset boulevard but i just dont see that being anything remotely like a slamdunk in terms of it going over well. so i'm hoping she wins.

February 22, 2019 | Registered CommenterNATHANIEL R

@Nathaniel: Well, never say never. Who'd have thought she'd have opportunities with Albert Nobbs and now The Wife? I'm sure there's a role out there somewhere, perhaps in a more bankable film (which seems to be important to everyone for some reason). In the meantime, I'll just hope that you're right about the BAFTA winner losing this time, as you were about BAFTA winner Cotillard winning in 2007.

February 22, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterBruno

Calm down Bruno, Glenn has it clinched.
