Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

Fences & Elle now on DVD and Blu-Ray

By the end of April nearly all theOscar's favorite 2016 filmswill be available on Blu-Ray and DVD (La La Landis the caboose on April 25th) in case you accidentally missed any.And if you purchase them from Amazon,by clicking over from TFEwe get a teensy tiny cut as an Amazon affiliate (hint hint).

Last Week's Fresh Batch
The Eyes of My Mother- Daniel recently paid tribute to this indie horror film's award winning production design film's
Jackie- We've sung its praises plenty and interviewed Pablo Larraín,too
Moana- a favorite among thepodcastteam

Brand New This Week
Elle- Verhoeven and Huppert's provocative collaboration had long legs at the arthouse and we called that Oscar nomination super early.Yay
Fences- Denzel & Viola reprising their Tony winning roles in this American classic of a black family in the 1950s from August Wilson's Pittsburgh cycle.The other nine will supposedly be filmed,too,albeit for TV rather than as theatrical features.Which is a pity sinceFencesproved the audience is there
Collateral Beauty- I swear Chris is obsessed with this film's badness.Will it one day be a camp classic?
Passengers-Daniel looked at its Oscar nominated production design.It did look like a million dollars despite its narrative problems.

How do you think these films will age?Will you be adding any to your collection?

Oscar's Musical Numbers Fly Among the Stars

Dancin' Danhere,and I am thrilled to say that after years of mostly rather dully staged performances,the great Oscar musical numbers of the past are back.

We had planned a ranking of this year's performances,but they were all of such high quality that,feeling magnaminous,I'm unwilling to declare one better than the other.Instead,a review of the musical numbers as they happened during the ceremony,in all their glory.

Oscar Night Performances: Lin-Manuel Miranda and More

By Nathaniel R

With just 16 days until the Oscars more news hits each day.亚博主页We now know that all five Original Song nominees will be performed on the broadcast but we can safely expect at least two of the songs to be significantly altered.

Lin-Manuel Miranda will performMoana's "How Far I'll Go,"which is a solo,with Moana herselfAuli'i Cravalhoso one wonders what kind of arrangement we'll get for the song as a duet.Nevertheless it's a safe bet to say that this will be a highlight of the show since the song is rousing and everybody loves Miranda...

Annie Awards Results.It's Zootopia vs Kubo for the Oscar

The Annie Awards have been happening for 44 years but after some bumpy years in which their loyalties to specific studios were questions,they seemed to have worked things out and their profile is higher each year.Yesterday's even at the UCLA's Royce Hall was a big night for Disney which took 10 prizes.Zootopiacontinued its dominance by taking the top prize.

Though we should quickly note thatKubo and the Two Stringsis still a possible spoiler at the Oscars and took home a few Annies itself.亚博主页As Kris Tapley recently noted,there is momentum for finally honoring Laika who have never missed a nomination in the Animated Feature category but have yet to win it.While I am in the minority that thinksKubois the company's weakest film to date (it's gorgeous,don't misunderstand -- I just think both the episodic plot and the voice work is weaker than in their other films) they're also rapidly outdoing Pixar who have fallen into repetition and sequelizing.

The winners with commentary are after the jump...
