My 6th Annual Film Awards: Your Winners

I may not do this again. In 2014, the fewest votes any category got was 77. In 2015, it was 45. This year, no category got more than 17 votes. I don’t know why. I did my damnedest to get the word out. I used Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and even Instagram to try and draw…

Producers Guild Award Nominees: 2016

And now the Producers Guild chimes in. They’re traditionally a very solid barometer of most, but not all, of the Best Picture nominees. I’ll get into more in a moment, but first, the nominees: Arrival Deadpool Fences Hacksaw Ridge Hell or High Water Hidden Figures La La Land Lion Manchester By the Sea Moonlight

2016 Rising, Actus Tertius: Reflections

It’s time to close the door on 2015. Past time, even. But I wanted to round off this awards season, as patchy as my coverage of it may have been, with a poll (seen above), some statistical fun, and some reflection on my awards past.

The Nominations for the 88th Academy Awards

Well, my heart was pounding for a minute there. And now that the dust is settling, there’s a strange set of nominees to sift through. Because they didn’t quite do what I expected. And in a couple of cases…they did what no one expected.

Season’s Greetings from the Gravy!

I was hoping to have my Force Awakens review ready for you today, but it’ll probably have to wait until Saturday or Sunday. I want to make it a good one. Just a few thoughts and notes to tide you over: I saw The Big Short and The Good Dinosaur yesterday. The former was very,…

AFI Top 10 List: 2015

The American Film Institute announced their Top 10 list today. They delayed the announcement so the members would be able to factor in Star Wars, and…you’ll see how that panned out. I’m gonna go over the list and consider what each film’s Oscar chances are at the moment. Although this is still one of the more open…
