  1. It wouldn't surprise me, actually, if went to Trial, even though the pundits are all saying Nomadland has the lead. Nomadland has two issues: 1. The actors are mostly non-actors. When the actor's branch of the academy is the largest branch, I don't know how well this will play. 2. The movie is more poetry than narrative. Again, that might get you a nomination, but not necessarily the win. We are no longer in the plurality ballot, and haven't been for some time. It's a preferential ballot. That means something that earns a lot of #2s and #3s could easily win. Trial seems like it could be a safe #2 or #3 for a lot of people, who enjoyed PYW or another film more passionately. If Trial wins, it will be more like a Spotlight kind of year.
  2. Toups, are you thinking Mullligan as the surest? She's definitely my pick and well-deserved, but several sites are suggesting Day and even Davis as possibilities. I think McDormand could eke it out as well, if her latest win (3Billboards) weren't so recent. I think Actor is the sure shot. (Although Hopkins is phenomenal)
  3. I just finished this series, and let me just say I love it. It has a quirky sensibility, but also knows how to bring the drama. A commentary on the absurdity of children having to grow up in that environment. Love Jasmine the most. She's the one that brought me. With the way it ended, I'm happy there's going to be a final season.
  4. I'm sorry, but no 90s hip-hop girl group would be called Nasty Bitches. That stuff didn't fly then. Nasty Bs? Maybe. Better to call the group Xhale or 4Love or something like that. Conjures up Nineties hip-hop or R&B more to me.
  5. If she does (and I think there's a decent chance), she will take the spot by Chung or Fennel (even though I love PYW)
  6. Vaccinated. Pfizer. They said it will take two weeks for the antibodies to build up.
  7. Working through Breaking Bad, On My Block and Cobra Kai. Oh yeah...and WandaVision.
  8. Almost 30 years on and STILL a bop!
  9. Loving the whole album, but this is the one sticking out for me right now.
  10. This guy ("Professor of Rock") is just an all-around good follow if you are pop fans of the 70s and 80s. He occasionally dips into the 90s too. Really knows his stuff but not esoteric about it at all.

    Wadjya all think?
  12. Marceline is correct. Here in the Rust Belt of Ohio, a lot of people are still out of work and haven't truly recovered from 2008 and the shutdowns of auto manufacturers prior and since. If people feel like they have a rock solid job they can retire from, they're golden. I believe in this so heavily that I just completed one of Biden's surveys asking me about the key issues to win this state. Personally, I want to see him work on gun violence and systemic racism and climate change...but I also want him to win, and here that means jobs and the economy (stupid). P.S. I don't see him winning Ohio this go-round, but I do know polls are showing we are a little less leaning R than we were two weeks ago. Within margin of error I believe.
  13. I thought it was ridiculous when Opal (AMC) gave birth to little Petey.
  14. Pelosi just called Trump "morbidly obese" on CNN. Let the s*%$ storm begin. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSns9TJe0X0
  15. What's fascinating is how boring she was prior to that. MCE should have played a vixen all along.
  16. Succession. Good family drama with a business setting.
  17. You may be thinking of Brian Keith.
  18. If you think his smearing of Joe Biden from the whole impeachment business did not work, I'm here to tell you that you have some more thinks coming. I'm not sure what you're hearing, but in this Bleeding Red area, they are furious because the "Democrats used the impeachment to cover up what Biden really did." Trump knows this, and Trump already knows how to play this hand.
  19. There isn't enough dressing to put on that word salad.
  20. I did not vote for him, but I, too, have been very impressed with his handling of the pandemic. I believe he was the first one to shut down schools. He announced on Thursday and everyone was done by Tuesday. He has gradually been shutting other things down as well. His daily 2:00 briefing has become my new "soap."
  21. One of the funniest lines I remember from AMC is from when Edmund "fake-kidnapped" Erica and they had just completed a frantic phone call where Erica pleaded with Dimitri (?) to come save her. After the hang-up, Edmund says to Erica, "With a performance like that, you deserve an Oscar." La Lucci replies, "I'd settle for an Emmy."
  22. I read about this, and they said he had been suffering with a long illness. Does anyone know what illness? So young.
