  1. Bob Burns says:

    Any of these BP nominees would fit in just fine with the list of previous winners, along with at least another eight contenders which did not get nommed.

    There’s no reason to judge whether any particular Academy voter makes their choice based on personal preference, political issues, favoritism, or minority representation. In the end the title of the winning film will look just fine on the walls of the Dolby Theater. No Green Book, King’s Speech or The Artist. No embarrassing films on this list, and there are good reasons, of different sorts, to award any of them. Good movies.

    I would have included Miami, and Ma Rainey…. but it isn’t as if they were pushed out by mediocre choices. Academy voters seemed to have done a better job without the normal groteque excess of the usual awards campaign season. Individuals are smarter than mobs.

Disney: To avoid reinforcing stereotypes from the original animated film, we are taking a different approach with these seven characters and have been consulting with members of the dwarfism community. We look forward to sharing more as the film heads into production after a lengthy development period.”

Peter Dinklage Comments To Marc Maron: “I was a little taken aback when they were very proud to cast a Latina actress as Snow White. You’re still telling the story of ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.’ Take a step back and look at what you’re doing there. It makes no sense to me. You’re progressive in one way and you’re still making that fucking backwards story about seven dwarfs living in a cave together, what the fuck are you doing man? Have I done nothing to advance the cause from my soapbox? I guess I’m not loud enough.”
