White savior? I thought the black guy saved and educated the white guy in that one. Oh well. I suppose it depends on how bad you want to be offended or who you want to let tell you when to be offended. I heard A Star is Born was a misogynist, sexist, chauvinist tragedy against women. I just thought it was kind of boring.

I like Sam Elliot though, so that helped.

not to say Blackkkklansman should have won, but GB definitely should not have received the nod



the industry wasn't ready to acknowledge Netflix yet, next best in their mind was GB

Roma swept three awards so it's difficult to argue that Netflix was the reason.

Not to say that the backlash against Netflix exists and that there's a movement to award only films designed for cinemas and released in cinemas by the people who are not ready to move on with the times.

saw Roma twice in theater and twice++ at home

it was definitely designed for cinemas

these streaming services are poaching talent and beating the studios at their own game

fck the bosses!

Streaming services know a lot about viewers
They collect a shitton of data on what drivers viewership
Back in the neilsen days (which still exist) there was such limited data on who watched what
Now streamers know whos watching and when they stop watching adn what they rewind back to or where they restart watching
Iwhen they create content, its data driven for maximum audience engagement
They are watching us watch them
And their content will draw us in because of that

Agree. Same here. Will always prefer cinema experience, loud popcorn eaters, hot tamale wrapper crunchers, slurpers and all.

TBH I enjoyed streaming it at home too but I understand that not everybody cares enough to spend money on a large 4k panel and good sound.

If it's available for streaming most people will watch it on tablets, phones and sitting 30' away from a 40" screen. It's just the way world is today.

It's like 120hz "TruMotion" that all panels come plagued with from factory.
I'm guessing 90% of people don't care about their cinematic experience enough to turn that shit off. cussing bawling

talent isn't happy with the no back end royalties though. Netflix, Amazon, etc are going have to deal with defining that pay structure soon. could be an advantage for traditional studios when their streaming services go live as they have more history in paying royalties.

Film industry is going through the same thing that music industry went thru when streaming became a thing.

Internet ruined everything, lol.

That's the option that makes everything look like it was filmed with a 2005 HD-camcorder right?

Its the interlaced frame or soap opera look. 120hz screen refresh rate makes the same effect.

Back in the day when soap operas couldnt afford to shoot film, and 24fps progressive frame video cameras didnt exist, they shot video at @30fps interlaced, which was a regular broadcast standard.

Its crazy when you think about it that a screen refresh rate can totally ruin acting performance.

Human brains. socrazy

The only way Trump should be engaging the theater kids is by trolling them relentlessly. Their job is to dance and sing for our amusement. Just because you can put a costume on a fast food worker doesn't make them a hero. Or a philosopher. Or a anything other than a puppet.
