Oscars and Other Movie Awards


#329

As he goes for the EGOT, Hamilton creator Miranda will team with Cravalho on “How Far I’ll Go,” which he co-wrote for Disney’s Moana. Ex-Police man Sting will perform “The Empty Chair,” which he co-wrote for the HBO documentary Jim: The James Foley Story. Legend — already an Oscar winner for his song “Glory” from Selma — will perform “Audition (The Fools Who Dream)” and “City of Stars,” two songs he co-wrote for Oscar front-runner La La Land. And Timberlake will sing “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” which he co-wrote for DreamWorks Animation & Fox’s Trolls and became a pop smash, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 100 and ending as the best-selling song of 2016.

I get that Emma Stone doesn’t want to do it - she’s not a professional singer - but Legend singing “Audition (The Fools Who Dream)” feels weird. It doesn’t seem suited to his style at all.


#330

My wife told me Lin-Manuel was nominated. That’s so fucking exciting. If he wins, he’ll be the youngest person to get an EGOT. My wife’s friend, Chris, has his EG and narrowly missed out on the T to another Hamilton cast member.


#331

Legend can probably do a solid version of it, but I don’t think his rendition is likely to capture the same feeling/impact the song brings to the movie. Could be wrong, though.

OUTSTANDING BRITISH CONTRIBUTION TO CINEMA (PREVIOUSLY ANNOUNCED)
Curzon

Dev Patel for Supporting Actor is the only real surprise. I like the movie, but Maharshala Ali or Jeff Bridges would have been a much better choice.

I’m glad Lonergan won for Screenplay, and Anvari for Outstanding Debut.


#333

I watched Lion last night.

Patel was really good in it - he nailed the accent.


#334

Watched five minutes of the Grammys - by accident. Later read Russian-novel-sized-list of nominees and awards. Other than Adele, I know one album well - Iggy Pop’s Post Pop Depression and one I own Live at the Greek with Joe Bonamassa.

I’ve often been disconnected with “what’s happening in the music industry”. Not weird, I know people in the biz who feel the same way. This was just not a year for fat old men in flannel playing guitars, I guess.


#335

In my own little neck of the woods, 'Jungle Book’s win for VFX was well deserved.


#336

The Grammies were pretty good. Loved Tribe Called Quest’s performance, loved Beyonce’s performance, loved Chance the Rapper’s performance. I don’t care about who wins the awards, but then neither do the voters.


#337

I didn’t watch the show as I forgot it was even on but I saw this on Youtube and thought it was fantastic. It was up there with Kendrick Lamar’s performance last year.


#338

Exactly, I always enjoy awards shows and ‘best of’ lists, not because I really care who wins in a hugely subjective comparison but that they highlight a lot of the best stuff to check out.


#339

Here’s an interesting video about The Oscars and how instant run-off voting (similar to @Lorcan_Nagle’s favorite first past the post system when there are multiple entrants) is giving the advantage to a certain kind of film to win.


#340

mentions only Moonlight

Huff


#341

I’d not actually heard of Hillary’s America but it sounds pretty terrible.


#342

#343

Who id like to win
Best film
Moonlight

Best actor
Casey Affleck

Best actress
Fuck knows I’ve only seen La La Land and Emma Stone wasn’t particularly great - I liked Negga in the trailers though and I think Loving looks great

Best director
Dennis Villeneuve

Who I think will win
Best film
La La Land

Best actor
Andrew Garfield

Best actress
Ruth Negga

Best director
Damien Chazelle


#344

You didn’t like Emma?

I’d be quite happy for her and Garfield to win together, but I don’t think it’s his time.


#345

That’s because she had to work so damned hard to carry Ryan Gosling’s cardboard cutout ass. :wink:


#346

I like her but I don’t think she’s prize winning material - I thought she just played Emma Stone in la la land, with added singing

I think Garfield is a really cheesy actor, he needs amother couple decades


#347

I thought Emma Stone carried La La Land and acted her ass off, so I’m cool with her winning. But I think hers was also the only performance in that category I saw, so it’s hard to say who should win.


#348

He was impressive enough in The Social Network - word is he’s great in Silence. If he were to win for Hacksaw Ridge it’s likely taking into account those other two performances as well.
