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.

"What the movie brought back for me was that Roger’s sexual harassment was only the beginning of his manipulation and mind games. Roger Ailes always reminded me of a different omnipotent, fear-inducing wizard, one who maintained control over a kingdom of nervous minions through smoke, mirrors, endless corridors, and devastating demands. I was so struck by Roger’s warped behavior that I began taking contemporaneous notes, as close to verbatim as I could recall, immediately after some of my visits to his inner sanctum. I had planned to turn these notes into a novel, but the following passages never made it into the manuscript. They’ve sat in a notebook, collecting dust in my closet, until now."
