Oscars 2022: The Catch-Up

Well, I’m all out of sorts this year. A lot’s been going on and I’ve just barely had time to watch stuff the past few months. So whereas most years, I’m all over everything that’s out and ready to go with a Top Ten list for December 31st, I’m thinking I’m gonna be late on that this year. I still need to watch about 45 movies (and that’s before I even get started on the shortlists). The major ones on that list include Bones and All, Tár, Triangle of Sadness, The Wonder, My Father’s Dragon, The Eternal Daughter, Bardo, Decision to Leave, Emancipation, Aftersun, The Menu, Devotion, The Inspection, The Son, White Noise, The Pale Blue Eye, The Whale, Empire of Light, A Man Called Otto, Living, Women Talking and Avatar. I’m not even gonna attempt a Top Ten list before I watch most of those. So I think mid-January is probably the best time to expect that. Which I don’t really mind. I’d rather get it right than get it posted.

All that being said, because I’m so behind on simply watching stuff (since this time of year, I’m usually only looking to watch about 5 or 6 movies and already on my rewatch portion before I finalize my list), I haven’t even begun to think about Oscar season. To the point where I legitimately didn’t even know it had started until I saw the Golden Globe nominations were out… the day after they were announced. Legitimately it hadn’t even crossed my mind that we’d even be into that stuff yet. That’s how busy I’ve been.

So this article is just me catching up on all that’s happened thus far (minus the shortlists. That’s gonna be its own thing), plus me making a list of all the things that are to come, so at least I have it as a reference for when I invariably have to catch up and need to know what I’ve missed.

Like I said, Oscar season’s gonna happen, it’s just gonna be a bit weird. So let’s embrace the weird. (more…)

Pic of the Day: “They didn’t give us much time, did they? Goodbye, Lucy dear.” “Goodbye, darling.” “In case I don’t see you again…” “What?” “Well, anything might happen. The train could jump off the track. If it should happen that I don’t see you again, it’s been very nice knowing you, Miss Breckenridge.” “Bark, that’s probably the prettiest speech you ever made. And in case I don’t see you a… well, for a little while. I just want to tell you, it’s been lovely. Every bit of it. The whole 50 years. I’d sooner have been your wife, Bark, than anyone else on earth.” (85th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: ♫ “They may take you from me / I’ll miss your fond caress / But though they take you from me / I’ll still possess / The way you wear your hat / The way you sip your tea / The memory of all that / No, no, they can’t take that away from me / The way your smile just beams / The way you sing off key / The way you haunt my dreams / No, no, they can’t take that away from me” ♫ (85th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: “Miss Scout, you think you could tell us what happened?” “I don’t know. All of a sudden somebody grabbed me, knocked me down on the ground. Jem found me then. Then Mr. Ewell, I reckon, grabbed him again, and Jem hollered. Then somebody grabbed me. Mr. Ewell, I guess. Somebody grabbed him… and then I heard someone pantin’ and coughin’. Then I saw someone carrying Jem.” “Well, who was it?” “Why, there he is, Mr. Tate.” “He can tell you his name.” (60th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: “There is the railway. And that is the desert. From here until we reach the other side, no water but what we carry with us. For the camels, no water at all. If the camels die, we die. And in twenty days they will start to die.” “There’s no time to waste, then, is there?” (60th Anniversary)

Pic of the Day: “How pretty do I look to ya?” “Well, ma’am, aint you just being a little bit forward?” “Well, you’re headed up river and I’m headed down. There’s no time to get these questions answered.” (60th Anniversary)
