Gurus Guesstimate Globes

A step sideways from the business of Oscar to what may come from the upcoming closed-bar rendition of the Golden Globes. The Gurus were gracious enough to dip, however momentarily, into the muddied waters of the HFPA’s annual shindig. Hoping to read the capricious minds of fewer than hundred semi-anonymous voters may be a perilous task (especially compared to the factors to weight from the ten thousand or so members of the industry who belong to the Academy). The choices by the Gurus suit the history of what the organization has bestowed in years past, leaving the likes of James Corden a mere “Golden Globe Nominee” for the resume. Sunday’s coming: we await the haphazard commentary of co-hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey and to see whether Lin-Manuel Miranda takes center stage or if Glenn Close’s Meemaw can come from behind with homely mumble-puffs of wisdom and take the Gurus to task.

The Staff And Board of The Canyon Cinema Foundation Address SFMOMA On Planned Elimination of Film Program

"SFMOMA’s recent decision to eliminate its Film Program (among other vital, inclusive, and community-focused programs) is a stunning disavowal of its own history. Moreso, it is a shocking divestment from SFMOMA’s stated commitment to “exhibiting film as an essential medium of modern and contemporary art” and to fostering a vibrant film culture in San Francisco. Following the renovation of its state-of-the-art Phyllis Wattis Theater in 2016, SFMOMA has demonstrated the ability, and financial willingness, to present film at the highest quality.
