Oscars 2019: BFCA Awards

BFCA announced their awards tonight. I spent the whole day writing up my Nominations Ballot, so I’ve paid zero attention to this. Fortunately, though, the night before nominations, we get some precursor winners, which already has helped sway me in at least one category, and that was just me glancing at stuff. So let’s go down all the categories and see if the winners help change my opinion on stuff or further solidify how I feel about nominees / what’s probably going to win.

Here are your BFCA winners: (more…)


Oscars 2019: The B+ Nominations Ballot

I get so excited for this article, but it feels like we’re just rushing right into it this year. Which is because it’s coming about a week earlier this year than it usually does, pushed up due to the fact that the Oscars are three weeks early this year. It doesn’t matter. I’m still gonna go all out and blather on forever. Because it’s what I do. This article only comes second to the actual Oscar night article in terms of how all out I go in talking about stuff that only matters to me and just about no one else.

Tomorrow morning, at 5:30am PST, they will announce the Oscar nominees. There will be anywhere from 120 and 125 nominees, owing to the sliding scale for Best Picture. There will be 120 for sure, and there can be up to 125. If previous years hold, expect either 123 or 124. I’m gonna try to guess all of them correctly. Because that’s what I do. Typically, if I can get to 90, I’m happy. If I can hit 75% or more, I’m thrilled. The goal is to, one of these years, get to 80%. But that’s all hypothetical. I’m really just here to guess shit and talk about Oscars. The rest is just personal goals to make it more interesting for myself.

The tens of you who read this site should know by now that I’m not just gonna give you the same shit everyone gives you. Most people just give you a list and don’t explain themselves or they guess based on what’s gonna get them clicks. You know I don’t do the latter ever and I refuse to give you the former. I’m gonna give you way more information than you could ever possibly need. My goal is to do well enough for you to be able to do better than me. I’m not just telling you, I’m showing you the thought process so you can hopefully find some creases that I don’t see (or refuse to acknowledge because of whatever shred of pride there is left in these cockles). It’s not about how well I do. It’s about empowering you to do better. (more…)

Pic of the Day: “Leslie… don’t behave like that… making a fuss o’er those people. You’re a Texan now.” “Is that a state of mind? I’m still myself…” “You’re my wife now honey, you’re a Benedict.” “I still have a mind of my own. Elsewhere being gracious is acceptable.”


Oscars 2019: Makeup & Hairstylist Guild Awards

The Makeup & Hairstylist Guild Awards were given out last night. I’ll make this quick, because we have nominations to guess.

Bombshell won Contemporary Makeup, Contemporary Hair and Special Makeup Effects. Joker won Period/Character Makeup and Downton Abbey won Period/Character Hair.

As a reminder, your shortlist is:

Bombshell
Dolemite Is My Name
Downton Abbey
Joker
Judy
Little Women
Maleficent: Mistress of Evil
1917
Once upon a Time in Hollywood
Rocketman

So that probably helps us out for later. Even though I think you could have probably figured a lot of that out just by looking at the shortlist.

Nominations Ballot coming at you in a few hours. I’m toiling away on it as you read this.
