COMMENT DU JOUR
Emmy Aftermath - how to fix the Emmys?

"Personally, I'm opposed to capping wins or even nominations, even if seeing Modern Family win year after year drives me up the walls. I think it look punishing to the winners, instead of addressing the real issue, which are the voters and the voting system, and how even as things change and get more diverse and they try to catch up, they still don't vote that outside that box at all. It still takes that little aura of prestige for different shows to break in, and there is such a gap between what's great and what's awards-material." - Tee

BEAUTIFUL INFO-PACKED SUBMISSION CHARTS. 

 

FOREIGN FILM PREDICTIONS
And the Nominees Are...
(alpha order)
Austria
4 noms | 2 wins
Amour


WINNER

Michael Haneke made Oscar inroads with White Ribbon and his international reputation goes a long way toward making each new film an event. This film about an 80 year old couple has been collecting trophies ever since Cannes.

REVIEW

 

Canada 
6 noms | 1 win
Rebelle (War Witch)

This bleak drama from Kim Nguyen is about a girl child soldier. If Oscar can handle it, it'll get nominated. But how much bleakness can they take in one year? See also Amour.

Chile
1st nomination!
NO

Though Chile's political true story lacks the epic beauty one traditionally associates with this category, it's a pretty grand entertainment and even an inspiring one.

REVIEW

Denmark
9 noms | 3 wins
A Royal Affair

The film about a queen who falls for her king's physician is a sumptuous costume drama with a sharp political kick. With Mads Mikkelsen and rising starlet Alicia Vikander (Anna Karenina)

CAPSULE THOUGHTS

 

Norway
6 nominations
Kon-Tiki

This adventure film from Joachim Rønning & Espen Sandberg is Norway's most expensive film ever made. It's launched a new star and charts the raft voyage across the Pacific of famous explorer Thor Heyerdahl
