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.

"Ninety seconds. That’s how quickly Steven Soderbergh believes the Academy Awards will convince viewers that this year’s telecast is different. The concept for the show, which Soderbergh is producing with Stacey Sher and Jesse Collins, is to treat the telecast not like a TV show but a movie. And he’s convinced he’s got a doozy of an opening scene. “We’re going to announce our intention immediately,” says Soderbergh. “Right out of the gate, people are going to know: ‘We’ve got to put our seatbelt on.’”

Paul Schrader on Facebook: “AN OBSERVATION ABOUT FILM ECONOMICS. The clever post-nickelodeon decision to monetize motion pictures (squeezing large numbers of patrons in un-air-conditioned large rooms with (for a time) intermittent vaudeville acts worked like a charm for decades. Then came TV. Yet movies survived. Became larger scope, racier subject matter, exploitation pix, women's pix, prestige pix, horror pix, genre pix, realistic pix. bigger in scope, racier in subject matter, newsreels. serious dramas, art films, European films—and air conditioned cinemas. But now comes Phase Three: BOOM! The growing desire of audiences to see film entertainment in theater like home entertainment at great discount, a transition 14 months in the training, but, more importantly, a shift away from the standalone 2 hr ‘important’ drama inspired by literature to the ongoing episodic dramas inspired by crime series (true or otherwise), telenovelas, expanded documentary and biographic sagas, stripping storytelling of its ability to compose concise stories which land like a punch in the face.”
