"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

It Begins.Algeria submits "Papicha"for the Oscars亚博主页

by Nathaniel R

We were waiting to see which European country would be first to announce before publishing our famous Oscar submission pages.But an African country surprised us by being first up to bat.Word is in that Algeria will submitPapichaas their Oscar entry this year.

Papichacenters on a teenager (her nickname being the title) who dreams of being a fashion designer despite conservative bans.The film,a debut from the 41 year-old director Mounia Meddour,premiered at Cannes.No word yet on US distribution.This is the second consecutive submission from Algeria by a female director.Only two previous women have been submitted by Algeria: Yamina Bachir (Rachida,2002) and later her daughter Yasmine Chouikh (Until the End of Time,2018)

Papicha's trailer,and more on Algeria,Africa,and the Oscar race after the jump...

Halfway Mark Box Office (Part 2: Of Special Interest)

As part of our midway through the year report (previously:top fives from the team,favourite male performances,andmainstream box office hits) here's a look at the box office year thus far but getting very niche with queer cinema,documentaries,movies with rave reviews,and other specialty interests.We all know that superhero movies earn a lot of money at the box office so it's more fun to dig deeper.Figures here are actuals as of Sunday June 30th for films released in the first six months of the year.We'd love to know what you make of the following lists so don't be shy in the comments,please.

BOX OFFICE IN EIGHT NICHE CATEGORIES
= the movie is still in a decent number of cinemas so its numbers will go up.

Welcome to the Academy,2019 Newbies!

Today it was announced that AMPAS (The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences) has invited 842 new members to join them,further swelling the Oscar ranks.The Academy has recently entered a period of unprecendented growth as they continue to address gender parity and racial inclusivity within their ranks.For the first time that we recall they actually did achieve gender parity in regards to their new invites - exactly 50% of the new members are women and 29% of the invitees this year are people of color.Most impressively given the dire previous numbers the directors branch invited more women than men this year!THE DIRECTORS.Think about what a major step that is.

A full* list of new members follows and we threw some hearts up by people for which we went spontaneously aflutter though this is not to imply that the others don't deserve our love.It's a lot of names so it's easy to get overwhelmed...

by Nathaniel R

Just this weekend we loved you all anew forthat robust conversation about worthy Honorary Oscar recipients.News broke yesterday that the Board of Governors has named the four 2019 recipients.Honorary Oscars will go to the actor亚博主页Wes Studi(who many thought should have been nominated forLast of the Mohicansin 1992,his starmaking role),and two previously nominated directors,David Lynch(who we've been campaigning for) andLina Wertmüllerwho was famously the first woman ever nominated for the directing Oscar forher total masterpieceSeven Beauties.In addition to those three artists,the actressGeena Daviswill receive this year's Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award.That's a special subdivision of the Honorary that's not actually about the movies but your "outstanding contributions to humanitarian causes"...
