Oscar doubles- trivia on all the two-timers

"Winslet could easily wins a second one in the right project/role.Think about how close she comes for Steve Jobs. The other one is Viola Davis in Lead.I think everyone in Hollywood would vote if she is nomed again."-Patrick

"Still mystified why Jodie and Jessica won two and then … television (Jessica) or nothing much else (Jodie)." -Faye

What's Streaming from 1944?

Not too damn much,that's what!

Whenever we prep fora SmackdownThe Film Experience becomes newly alarmed at how scarce the availability of 20th century film titles actually is online.亚博主页Streaming culture has somehow convinced people that everything you might ever want to see is easier to access than it's ever been.Alas,the further back in time you go,the less there is for your eyeballs as we move away from analog.Of course streamingismore convenient so we hope Hollywood will magically decide to make all their vaults available.We can dream!

Laura dear,I cannot stand these morons any longer.If you don't come with me this instant,I shall run amok.

But if you want to steep yourself in 1944 beyondthe 5 films featured in the next Smackdown,here's what youcanstream should you have any of these memberships...

Doc Corner: Emmy Awards Go to Meryl Streep,Ava DuVernay,and Somebody Close to an EGOT

Like sand through the hourglass,the Emmys gave out far too many trophies.I actually forgot that the television Academy's ‘you're not famous enough' ceremony was on last weekend – because who wants to see RuPaul win an Emmy?Hello,anybody?Good call,Emmy!– and so my planned pre-Emmy focus on some of the documentary/non-fiction titles proved poorly timed.However,I thought we might look through the winners of the unfairly forgotten ceremony since at least in these categories,the voters are often forced to choose new winners every year.Meanwhile,the televised telecast could be a repeat and,truly,would anybody actually notice?

O.J.: Made in America,Meryl Streep,and which winner is just a Tony away from en EGOTafter the jump.

Doc Corner: Is 'Five Came Back' Netflix's Oscar Moment?

by Glenn Dunks

It can sometimes feel like we've seen WWII from so many perspectives that there can't possibly be new ways to convey the weight of its tragedy.ThatFive Came Back,a new three-part mini-docu-series on Netflix,manages to succeed at doing this is just one of its many virtues.Adapted from Mark Harris' book of the same name by Harris himself and directed by Laurent Bouzereau,this is a three-hour documentary about the work of five of Hollywood's biggest directorial names of the 1930s who enlisted to support the American war effort the only way that they knew how: through film,and the personal battles they fought in order to do so.

They were Frank Capra,John Huston,George Stevens,William Wyler and John Ford – the latter of whom gets the biggest laugh labelling documentaries in the 1930s as "silly things that rich kooks made"– each of whom left behind successful careers without the promise of anything when they came back.

If they came back at all.The series charts their early efforts before America's entering the war after Pearl Harbour in 1941 before digging more deeply in the works that they produced from the front lines on the ground and in the skies....
