The Gurus Weigh In, Post-Oscar

PETER HOWELL: My biggest Oscars surprise, other than Olivia Colman beating Glenn Close, has to be Green Book winning for Best Original Screenplay. Definitely did not see that one coming. I’d ranked Green Book last on my Gurus predictions for that category. And regarding Colman/ Close, I can’t remember a year when I wanted a tie more dearly so that two deserving actresses could both win. Would have been great if the Academy could have pulled off a tie win like Streisand/Hepburn in 1969. Here’s the link to my Oscars post-mortem column.

THELMA ADAMS: I’m not writing a wrap-up but I will say that “I have yet to understand the ramifications of the Preferential Ballot!” Read the full article »

Academy Speeches And Backstage

ALFONSO CUARÓN (Director): “I want to thank the Academy for recognizing a film centered around an indigenous woman, one of the 70 million domestic workers in the world without work rights, a character that has historically been relegated in the background in cinema. As artists our job is to look where others don’t. This responsibility becomes much more important in times when we are being encouraged to look away. Muchas gracias. Muchas gracias a mi familia. Muchas gracias, Mexico, y sobre todo muchas gracias. Gracias, gracias, gracias.”

Quote Unquotesee all »

“That’s the joke of Prune, that we just pretend to be a restaurant. But we’re actually an institute for living. We hide behind the fried eggs, and we hide behind the marrow bones, but really what we’re doing here is trying to change the whole goddamn world, one lamb chop at a time. It’s slow going, but I think we’re getting there.”
~ Gabrielle Hamilton

“I’m into pleasure rebellion,” she says, lighting a cigarette. “I’ve shared all my misery and tragedy but in my personal life I’m a cheerleader, an optimist. That aspect of myself is not shared. Once you are free from trauma, you are going to luxuriate in pleasure and happiness – personal pleasure. A divine gluttony, I should say.”
Lydia Lunch
