Can you tell me who made and press Atonement the For Your Consideration
posters? How many of them there are totally? Where you find the pictures?
Thank you really much.
There is a technical problem with your web site. When I visit the main page, I encounter this error: “A script on this page is causing your web browser to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer might become unresponsive.”
In fact, even if I try to stop the script, my browser session becomes unresponsive, and completely locks up. I must end the session using Windows Task Manager. This issue began occuring several months ago and occurs everytime I access the main site page. This does not occur with any other web sites. Some script executing on your main page is causing the issue.
Please fix the issue – I would be happy to assist any troubleshooting. With Oscar season getting into full gear, I would really like to visit your site, but can’t risk having to kill all my browser sessions when it locks IE. Thanks for any attention to this matter.
Please let me know if you accept paid guest posts on your site, Awards Daily. I work with freelance writers to create posts on sites like yours that link to a clients page within the context of the post. These are never reviews or advertisements for the link, just informational posts that are tailored to fit the content and audience of the site they are written for.
Is that something you are interested in discussing? If you are, what are your guidelines for this type of agreement?
Hi, if you have time, please correct your Awards Calendar, some events are in a wrong month, for example the Golden Globes (that actually are in January) are in February in your calendar. Best, Mer
Oh, someone has already mentioned that. My mistake, sorry.
Unfortunately I’m going to quit coming to the site because it keeps crashing my computer. I thought you were going to fix this issue?
Hi guys. I keep trying many different fixes – the problem appears to be the flash ads. The site works best in Firefox. If you use Chrome it will crash your computer. My apologies. On the upside if you look at it in your mobile browser it doesn’t contain flash ads.
I’m not having any problems, Sasha (using Safari)
I notice that your Critics Awards tags aren’t being used consistently — some are in under Critics Awards, some under Awards Chatter and some under neither. I’m having trouble keeping track of who’s won what since I can’t easily find older posts using the tags.
the trailer isn’t the best quality, but gets the job done
SASHA, exactly what day are both The DGA noms & PGA noms being announced
If both already have please list nominees
What’s an IP?
And how do I get a fake one? I like commenting here and might need to hit a guy up.
I have been a long time reader of Awards Daily and really enjoy this website. Please disregard the spam comments under my name. I am currently typing on a school computer with bad spam. I do not mean to disrupt the environment as you can see from my other posts. Sorry about that
Thanks for the heads up, Rishi.
We took care of those spam comments for you. Gone without a trace.
I’m just writing to let you know (if you don’t already) that Geoffrey Rush has just been named Australian Of The Year. This award is made annually on our national day (Australia Day) and normally goes to an academic, sportsperson, scientist or the like. The fact that it has gone to an theatre / cinema person is quite significant to the industry. Mr Rush is also the inaugural president of the newly reorganised Australian Film Academy (AACTA) whose awards will be made in the next week. This honour for Mr Rush is on top of his Academy (Oscar), Emmy, Tony, BAFTA, Golden Globe, SAG, Helpmann and Australian film awards
Hi i was just wondering how you guys started this website and if you could give me any advice on how to start one please and thank you!
I’ve been a faithful reader of your blog for years, and am now finding it pretty much impossible to read it because of all the ads and random crap on your page. My browser loads slower than a sloth crossing the road and crashes so often it’s like the actual coming of Y2k. I even tried it on my smartphone browser with the same results. Please do something about this.
Please consider posting my article, “Will Cedar’s Footnote Take Home an Oscar?” from the Jerusalem Post, an article analyzing Best Foreign Film.
Here is a link to it: http://www.jpost.com/ArtsAndCulture/Entertainment/Article.aspx?id=259392
Not too long ago you posted something on here about what the academy can do to be better… per the Academys request. Well I have seriously thought about this and I have a few ideas, and feel the topic should be reopened.
The biggest problem I feel with the Oscars (that I love oh so much) is overall excitement. I feel the creation of all the other awards has burned out the excitement. Everyone has put on so many black tie outfits, heard the same praise over and over for the same movies and performances, and usually had to sit through the same people winning over and over, and usually by the time the big show comes around, with the exception of the shorts, and a few minor surprises, the show goes on as everybody suspected it would, its stale and boring. One of the best things about the Golden globes is the excitement. It’s one of the first big shows out of the gate to announce winners, there is dinner and alcohol, so the speeches are genuine and fabulous because the winners didn’t know they were going to win, and there is excitement. So I realize that there is nothing the academy can do about these awards, but they can beat them to the punch.
My first idea is to move the date up. Way up. Create a fiscal film year. (kind of like the grammys). Announce that this year 2012, will stay the same rules and dates, but next year in 2013 have a shorter year, so from Jan 1st to Oct 31, then the following year have it from Nov 1st to Oct 31st. So by moving the dates up they can announce the nominees the beginning of Nov and have the awards in December. By doing this, the Oscars are first to speak rather than being the last, and create more excitement! I mean take this past year. If the Oscars came out first, and Octavia spencer hadn’t won a thing, how excited would most people be to see her against the wildly popular Melissa Mcarthy in bridesmaids. More people would have watched to see that battle take place. More excitement, more viewers!
Second, with the show, bring back dinner and alcohol. It makes the night better, a little less fussy, making the speeches and commentary better and more entertaining to watch.
Third, the voting and nomination process. Many people have said the older members should be out. I strongly disagree. There is prestige and honor with being a member and there is something to be said for working hard and being invited into one of the most elite groups in the world. So instead of kicking them out, you can however thin the herd… by default. I feel a lot of films are not seen. So like a college class, the academy needs to open up the films to all its members the day it is released in theatres, and needs to prove it has seen a majority of films. Every member is given a password. So if you see a film at home, in a theater or online, every film is registered with the academy and you have to put in your password showing and or proving you have seen it. If by the time the fiscal year ends and you have not seen a certain percent of all films made, your votes don’t count. So if the older members (or any member for that matter) refuses to watch films they don’t see as Oscar worthy just by a trailer or poster, that’s fine, but if they choose not to see so many of them that they fall below that percent, there out for that years nomination.
With that, an idea for the nominations. When an academy member views a film and puts their password in to prove they have seen it. They must rate all aspects of the film from 1 to 10.
1- The film as a whole
2- The director
3- The lead actor
4- The lead actress
5- Supporting actors
8- Art direction
And so on with all the categories the academy has, per the branch of the academy you’re a member of. So when the fiscal year ends, the nomination process ends. All the academy has to do then is add up the ranking of each film and performance etc. If a film or performance does not earn enough tens or high score, its out. If in case of a tie or five films or performances are not chosen, the overall high score wins out. So it becomes kind of like rotten tomato, or most rankings of all the critics. Each film is rated fairly, seen and given a chance. This also helps with academy members only voting for friends, it’s no longer a popularity contest, but what was really the best. So by eliminating the nomination voting of the past, the academy itself I feel will be surprised by who really was the best, and films like the dark knight and harry potter have a better chance of getting in. And with that most likely more viewers.
So if you didn’t qualify for the nominations because you didn’t see enough films, you can still vote on the final ballet. But again you have to prove you have seen every nominated film in each category. Every one! If you fail to do that, that’s ok, once again your votes won’t be counted.
I also love, love, love the idea of an ensemble award. Something that can spread a little more gold.
These are a few ideas, I would love to know what you think, and would love it if the academy actually listened to these ideas and took them to heart.
