"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

"Cats"trailer tease doubles as its first FYC ad

Universal is not fooling around withCats.There's a (presumably) gargantuan budget on the line but an insanely high level of brand awareness will help it turn a profit and they surely know that Oscar buzz wouldn't hurt toward that goal,either.This promo for the teaser (due Friday),which has no actual footage from the movie,is playing just like an FYC ad for the film's cast and crew...

Halfway Mark: Best of 2019 (Thus Far)

by Nathaniel R

Let's wrap upthe midyear reviewnow with a general overview and behind the scenes beauty.Pleasedon'tconsider this list 'official' awards since the back half of the year is usually more impressive than the first half due to annoying Oscar-focused distribution patterns.The point,nevertheless,is an important one: we should always be appreciating art and keeping lists so we don't forget delights that opened in non-awards season months like most awards voters do.

CONSIDER - Actresses of 2019,First Half

Here's our penultimate 'halfway mark,year in review' post for you.The19 performances by actresses we treasured most at the moviesthus farthis year.

We hope you'll sound off on these and share your own favourites in the comments...and we hope this list serves as a reminder to Oscar and Globe and SAG voters to keep lists of things that impress you all year so that at the end of the year you aren't just voting for the 5 things youjustsaw.Before we begin I should note that I sadly missed the three following female-led films and will catch up with them when given the chance later in the year:Her Smell,Little,andThe Souvenir.Okay here we go...

(Jan 1st - June 28th releases)

Jessie Buckley as "Rose-Lynn"inWild Rose
Yes,the movie basically hands her the "star-making"reviews on a platter.It's ALL about watching her sing and emote.But the performance has lovely nuances,lived-in feeling,and own-worst-enemy fire.And that voice.Good god.

CONSIDER - Actors of 2019,First Half

With the year half over,it's time to look back on the first six months and what treasures they brought us.Here are the 19 performances by actors we liked most at the moviesthus farthis year.We hope you'll sound off on these and share a few of your own in the comments...and we hope this list serves as a reminder to Oscar,Globe,critics,and SAG voters that amazing performances can happy at any time of the year.Why wait til December to startconsideringyour "Best of"ballot?We'renotsaying that all 19+ of these fellows deserve prizes,just that everyone should be keeping lists of standouts for their own pleasure and edification and to combat faulty memories as the year progresses.

Subject to Change!I regret missing the following actor-led pictures which I will catch up with as soon as I have the opportunity:The MustangandSorry Angel.Okay here we go...

(Jan 1st - June 30th releases)

Chao Deng as "Jing Zhou/ Zi Yu"inShadow
An amazing dual role wherein he delivers both near-camp level villany and subdued stoic masculinity sometimes in the same frame.[Awards for this performance: Best Actor nominations at both the Golden Horse Awards and the Huading Awards.]

Emmy FYC: Suranne Jones in "Gentleman Jack"

Team Experience has been sharing our FYCs for the Emmys.With voting ending today here's our last plea from Deborah Lipp...

Suranne Jones,you have stolen my heart.To be fair,it's Anne Lister who has stolen my heart,but Jones breathes such extraordinary life into the character,that I cannot separate them.Yes,I love the historical figure of Anne Lister,whoever she might have been in real life,but I lovethisAnne Lister,and that is all due to Suranne Jones.

Anyone familiar with my writing knows I do not attempt to remove my personal slant from my reviews.I don't believe in it,to be honest.We all bring ourselves to the viewing experience,and we color what we see with what we bring to seeing.I write this rave review as myself,a queer woman married to the fantastically butch Professor Spouse...

Emmy voting is in progress.Confessions from a sitcom agnostic.

by Nathaniel R

Aidy Bryant in "Shrill"

Voting is winding down for the year's Emmy nominations,which is why we've beensharing FYCs.If past years are any indication the nominee list will look nearly identical to last year's with the exception of shows/performances that are no longer eligible.Their slots will be filled by the new hits (it seems likely,for example,thatPoseandRussian Dolland a couple of other freshmen series that got people talking for months on end,will receive attention).Butlooking over the ballotsfor performers,it becomes suddenly clear that NO ONE can watch this much television...
