Egregious Weinstein Oscar Bids?


"For me it is Kate Winlset’s BA won for The Reader" - Jamie

"The Cider House Rules was terrible and took up space in 1999, one of the best movie years. And Cruise should have certainly beaten Caine." - Suzanne

"His most egregious Oscar heritage IS Roberto Benigni. And I would add Michael Caine winning over a way much deserving TOM CRUISE in his career best performance in Magnolia, that one still hurts." -Eder

Cannes News: Everbody Knows, The Poster Unveils, and Netflix Whines

It's still wintry here in NYC (groan) but Spring technically arrived a little while ago which means that the Cannes film festival is right around the corner. Here are three pieces of news involving the festival which will run from May 8th to May 19th.

The Poster
This year's poster, pictured above, is a quad rather than a horizontal for some reason. Usually they come in both formats or are just horizontal. It's based on the work of stills photographer Georges Pierre and the Jean Luc Godard film Pierrot Le Fou (1965). That's two posters based on Godard films in fairly quick succession. Last year's poster featured 1960s Italian sex symbol Claudia Cardinale but the year before that the poster was in tribute to Jean-Luc Godard's Contempt (1963)! 'Maybe Cannes ought to look beyond the 1960s and Godard sometime soon?,' he suggested with ribbing affection.
