    Could they have at least washed GR’s feet before propping him up naked in a bed?

    The new showrunner says she plans to make the revival more Latina (because Los Angeles, duh) and “less cis” with trans actors playing trans characters.
  4. According to Eric Braeden’s IG, Doug Davidson is returning to the show in some capacity.

    Consider the source but...they are claiming that the writers are scrambling to reduce Jussie’s role in the final couple of episodes this season.
  6. I loved @Edward Skylover‘s US soap scene thread, as it exposed me to some great stuff I hadn’t seen before. Are there any essential scenes from non-American soaps on YouTube we should see? The foreign soap I followed the longest was Hollyoaks. Eventually it got so grim and exploitative that I couldn’t stomach watching (ironic, considering my very first episode featured a bunch of body bags stacked atop each other after a pub fire that killed half the cast). But, like many British soaps, it has done stylized death scenes very well, and few better than Sarah Barnes’s demise after her parachute is sabotaged on a skydiving trip. It’s absolutely chilling and terrifying with the music as she plummets to the ground with a cruel thud.

    Ok thanks. I apologize. I do recommend watching the older versions.

    I’ll say nothing. 😑 This is an interesting piece that suggests how Black Panther might prevail in the night’s biggest category without the nominations that usually accompany a Best Picture winner.

    Basically, it looks like he was screwed weeks before the “hate crime” incident ever occurred.

    They were SO amazing. I loved those scenes. Every line delivery was perfection.

    Chandler looks like he doesn’t get enough sleep or something.

    Film Awards Thread

    That Donald Freakin’ Sutherland hasn’t been nominated is shameful. Basically the whole Ordinary People cast was nominated that year except him. Sam Rockwell was snubbed year after year, and then he was nominated for Three Billboards and won his first time out. Now they’ll name-check him anytime he sneezes in a movie.
  16. I’m starting a thread for news on mounting media layoffs as well as criticism of the media and journalism. Stuff that doesn’t necessarily or directly touch on politics. Dire warnings after BuzzFeed laid off 15 percent of their workforce:

    Greg Rikaart does look older, but his voice and mannerisms scream high school nerd. Jesse Eisenberg, who still looks very young, feels like he’ll be the same way as he ages.

    An interesting thread of active actors who’ve never been Oscar-nominated, which puts the whole Glenn Close/Amy Adams “overdue” narratives in some perspective (in that at least they were invited to the party, not that they aren’t deserving). Donald Sutherland Jamie Lee Curtis Ewan McGregor Cillian Murphy Guy Pearce Thandie Newton Bill Nighy Idris Elba Brendan Gleeson Michael Sheen Steve Buscemi John Goodman Jim Carrey James McAvoy Kevin Bacon John Cusack Robin Wright Kirsten Dunst
