One Response to “Gurus o’ Gold: Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Adapted Screenplay (Nov 26, 2019)”

  1. Bradley Laing says:

    Are there any ideas about the Best Documentary Feature long list, or “shortlist” nominees?
    I assume this is so strange a year, in the news, that documentary subjects must be easy to find.

"There’s a fascinating game of movie fandom that goes like this: 'What’s the greatest movie of [that year] or [that decade] that never got the love, or the reputation, it deserved?” If you’re talking about the 1980s, I wouldn’t hesitate to say that it’s Something Wild. You’ve probably heard of it, and have probably never seen it. [sic] It came out near the end of 1986, and though it received a handful of good reviews, along with some fairly hostile ones, the movie was basically ignored. No one was buzzing about it; no one was seeking it out."

“Human contact is really what our business is built on,” said Roland Swenson, chief executive of South by Southwest, which was canceled in March. “If that is lost, then the world will be a poorer place.”

"That makes the restaurant industry possible is maybe different from, say, the airline industry, or mining, or some shit. It’s at the intersection of capital, finance, social life, food production, sustenance. It’s all those things. I think it offers a very important lens to examine the choices that we make."
