Trivia:Tarantino and the Oscars亚博主页

"Say what you want about the politics,prejudice or misogyny in Tarantinos scripts and his persona,but we can all agree that his movies are a great showcase for actors."-Doug

"I think Tarantino only should retire when he gives us 10 masterpieces."-Geor

"The deterioration of Tarantino's filmography can be directly linked to Sally Menke's death.Terrible loss to the film community there."-Ian

Captain America vs.Captain America

Can Marvel Studio's finally win the Best Visual Effects Oscar at the Oscars via亚博主页Avengers: Endgame?Or willThe Lion King's photo-realism or something as yet unseen take the prize?Here's a video of the making of the Captain America vs Captain America fight.

That fight was definitely the highlight of the movie for us,especially given itsperfectpunchline...

It seems insane given their nominations in the category and the spectacle nature of their gazillion dollar "universe"that they haven't yet won it.Or even that they've been nominated so infrequently...but both are true.We interviewed them just last Oscar season aboutInfinity Warand were rooting for them to finally take it.They lost again.Their nominations in the category thus far:

  • Iron Man (2008,lost toBenjamin Button)
  • Iron Man 2 (2010,lost toInception)
  • The Avengers (2012,lost toLife of Pi)
  • Iron Man 3 (2013,lost toGravity)
  • Captain America: Winter Soldier / Guardians of the Galaxy (2014,both lost toInterstellar)
  • Doctor Strange (2016,lost to Jungle Book)
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 (2017,lost toBlade Runner 2049)
  • Avengers Infinity War (2018,lost toFirst Man)

2019's Biggest Threats to the Visual Effects Oscar?
We suspect the nominations will come from this group...

  • Ad Astra
  • Avengers Endgame
  • Cats
  • Gemini Man
  • The Irishman
  • The Lion King
  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
  • Terminator: Dark Fate

Alita Battle Angelshouldbe a contender but we suspect it won't be in the mix given its early release and low profile since it was neither a critical darling nor a massive hit.

Do you think Marvel Studios ever should have won this prize?Do you think they have a good shot this year?

I love that scene because it shows Cap being more aware of his flaws but also letting go some of his ideals.I love how the scene began with Cap cursing."You've got to be shitting me"

I also enjoyed the fact that he realizes why so many people hate him as well as outsmart the other Cap and realize..."that is America's ass"and it's the ass we need.
