Linkin' what comes naturally

MNPPCorey Stoll has joined the cast of Spielberg'sWest Side Storyremake as Office Krupke and a bunch of other new movies too.Yay.
Polygonall the things Disney owns now with the Fox deal completed.Cultural hegemony be frightening,people!(So over the past 20 years or so Disney,20th Century Fox,Lucasfilm,Pixar,ABC,and Marvel have become one company essentially)
Variety...has an analysis of what this new Media Giant movement might mean for the future

More after the jump includingFiddler on the Roof,Missing Link,a reaction to all the memes aboutBohemian Rhapsody's terrible Oscar-winning editing and famous movie characters you didn't know were on the down low.Lol...

My oh my but awards season is speeding up.Today ballots go out to the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assocation.Better known as those crazies that give out the Golden Globes.We adore the Globes here at TFE because if you look back at their historymanygreat films and performances and TV series have won that were never honored at the Oscars or Emmys,亚博主页particularly those of the comic or musical persuasion.

1.Crazy Rich AsiansandA Simple Favorfor Best Picture,Comedy or Musical

Supporting Actress - New Oscar Chart

by Nathaniel R

Continuing the chart updates to reflect this post-festival world,Supporting Actress is now redone with new images and new rankings and new text.The major change is that I've thoroughly convinced myself that Elizabeth Debicki will nab her first nomination forWidows.In some ways she has the biggest character arc,and it's a very large role that still is a supporting one (and screen time really counts as you know) and she has interesting screen chemistry of all types with her primary scene partners (Viola Davis,Lukas Haas,Jon Bernthal,and Jacki Weaver).Plus she's one of the most exciting new actresses working and there's usually someonenewishin a lineup.Of course to include her I've had to drop Amy Adams out of the predictions for her Second Lady role inVicewhich might be foolhardy.On the other hand,Oscar eventually falls out of obsessive love with every actor (unless their name is Meryl Streep).

Queer TIFF: "Vita & Virginia"and "Tell It To the Bees"

Nathaniel R trying to catch up on those festival reviews!

Herewith two films about married women breaking out of their heteronormative bonds for passionate lesbian affairs.And what I thought were two movies written by famous actresses though,in fact,only one was...

What would Virginia Woolf make of the multiple cinematic attempts to capture her enigmatic persona in two hours flat?Hell,what did the literary icon make of the movies themselves since they were invented in her lifetime?If I'm ever able to interview Woolf expert,actress/writer Dame Eileen Atkins,I plan to ask her.Woolf was most famously played onscreen by Nicole Kidman inThe Hoursin which Atkins had a small role.Now it's the ever bewitching Elizabeth Debicki's turn inVita and Virginia,written by Atkins from her play of the same name...
