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

Let's Talk Costume Design

Manuelhere to talk costume design,one of my favorite Oscar categories.Today's detour into this category comes courtesy ofthis very cool "Oscar by the numbers"infographic MTV came up withwhich makes the bold statement that "Zero"is "the number of oscar nominations for women behind the scenes."I'm sure they were hoping to point out the absence of women like Gillian Flynn (in Adapted Screenplay) and Ava Duvernay (in Directing) but isn't it horribly misleading?You don't have to go far to see Oprah Winfrey & Dede Gardner (Selma),Cathleen Sutherland (Boyhood) and Helen Estabrook (Whiplash) nominated in the Best Picture category,but you're mostly also ignoring the women nominated in Production Design,Make up and Hairstyling and,of course,Costume Design.Aren't these women working "behind the scenes"?This last category is to my mathematically challenged mind (and I'd have to double check the shorts categories to be sure),the only one outside of the actress nominations where we see an overabundance of female nominees.

And so,I wanted to highlight the work of the five costume designers nominated this year.If there's one thing to be said about the increasingly PR-driven world of Oscar campaigning is the careful attention to the crafts categories as showcases for those working "below the line"as one would say.And so here are sketches (with accompanying links of where to read more about these designers and their work)from the five nominated films...

Missi's Oscar Night Memoir

We return you to our celebrity guest-host Missi Pyle...atThe Film ExpThe Missi Experience.Just one more post after this gorgeously fun memoir.Enjoy - Editor


ME N OSCAR

The 84th Academy Awards.An Oscar Night Memoir
- by Missi Pyle

I just want to take a minute to talk aboutThe Artist.Holy shit.What an incredible experience that was.

Tiny back story.I left LA in 2008.I had married this guy from Montana with a grizzly bear sanctuary.I bought a geodome in the woods in Montana and moved in with said Grizzly man.I truly don't know what I was thinking.I had made some decent money in the previous year and I thought I could act from Montana?(Spoiler!Only Michael Keaton and Jeff Bridges can act from Montana - I wrote a show about it) Anyway,the marriage didn't work out and I ran out of money and came crawling back to LA.

I randomly had auditioned for,gotten the part and shot the filmThe Artist.It was really an incredible experience.But in my wildest dreams I never imagined the ride it would take me on.
