Aw...Leonard Nimoy, long a favorite of mine, has passed away at 83. At least he lived long...and prospered. I loved his stage performances in EQUUS and FULL CIRCLE, too.

This makes me so sad :( He was such an amazing man!

well....if anything, he will get a lifetime achievement award in 20 years or so :(



I hope so. Of course I hope he wins an Oscar outright, but there is no shame in not having the right luck or timing for that to happen. In which case a lifetime achievement award would be nice. Better than if he gets neither.

Sorry, I'm having a rare cynical moment, re Chappie. No reviews yet is not a good sign. Well, if nothing else, he's looking great for the promo tour.

Variety lists "solving the hosting crisis" among five ways to "fix the Oscars". They suggest Fallon.

I wonder if Fallon being on another network would prohibit that (NBC v. ABC). I seem to recall reading something like that in the past. And then of course Fallon (or whoever) would have to agree to it.

It also just dawned on me that in Les Mis, all of Hugh's big three co-stars (Russell, Anne, Eddie) have won Oscars. Hugh, c'mon already. Maybe he'll get one for playing Wolverine 1,000 times. :P

I'm also a little surprised that Hugh didn't congratulate Eddie in a tweet.

You know, a lot of people blame the host for ratings, one way or the other. I think that may be a small part, but I think a bigger part is the movies that are nominated. Most of the movies nominated were independent movies that the large masses have never heard of. Now if something like Titanic or Avatar were nominated, the ratings would have been huge IMO since people had a rooting interest.
I choose to believe that as well.  Too many headlines saying the ratings drop was the lowest since 2009 when HJ hosted.  If blockbusters hold the majority of best picture nominees, the host has a chance of getting viewers.

It was just a list of unpredictable events that had occurred during the course of the evening ... "Terrence Howard will get unusually emotional", etc etc. So it ended up being some sort of "magic trick" in the end.

narrows101: I just want you to know that I FINALLLY got rid of that "1" hovering over the "bookmark" word on the toolbar. I went into "profile" then "edit profile" and unchecked everything to see if it went away and it did. Then I checked everything one by one. Sept 19, 2013 20:35:27 GMT -5
narrows101: After "edit profile" and then "notifications" I unchecked everything and checked again. The culprit was "Forum" - "when a bookmark is update" - took that checkmark off and the "1" went away. Checked it again and it came back. So that was it. No idea why. Sept 19, 2013 20:37:35 GMT -5
ocycd: can anyone tell me why the photo I had for my avatar suddenly disappeared?? Sorry, I'm kind of a dunce when it comes to these things! Sept 21, 2013 15:14:33 GMT -5
narrows101: ocycd - I still see your avatar. Sept 22, 2013 9:24:14 GMT -5
Kristin: Ocycd - It's probably an issue on your end, with graphics not loading properly, because I can see your avatar too. Unless you can see everyone else's avatar and not yours, then I'll have to figure out why that's happening. Sept 22, 2013 20:37:44 GMT -5
Kristin: Pat - Awesome! It was bothering me that I couldn't figure that one out. Sept 22, 2013 20:38:07 GMT -5
ocycd: That is so weird cuz I can see everyone else's avatars but still not mine... and the same is true on my mac and my pc laptop... very strange. Maybe I'll try reloading it on my laptop next time I'm on it... thanks narrows101 and Kristin!! Sept 23, 2013 16:22:48 GMT -5
ocycd: My avatar is BACK! And I didn't do a thing... thank you magic virtual wizards!! Sept 27, 2013 15:01:45 GMT -5
24601: Kristin, what do you see below my avatar? Nov 19, 2013 22:53:12 GMT -5
nmb: :) Dec 12, 2013 18:42:47 GMT -5
24601: This is an absurd question. How does one post a new freestanding post within a thread? Using Reply button is all I know and more often than not becomes tedious, repetitive, bandwidth sucking reading. Feb 23, 2014 15:13:32 GMT -5
Kristin: You can't. You can only reply to threads or create a new thread. You can use the quick reply to just post something without responding to anyone in a thread, or quoting someone, but as far as just posting in a thread, you have to use the reply button. Mar 21, 2014 13:25:23 GMT -5
frances: The hair is one thing but I wish we had more opportunity to see that face without the beard. May 6, 2014 12:07:05 GMT -5
SueFB: Does anybody ever pay attention to this place here? Aug 11, 2014 15:24:05 GMT -5
Kristin: I forget it's here most of the time. Aug 12, 2014 6:59:17 GMT -5
SueFB: Yeah, me, too. I wonder what it's really intended for. For random comments that don't belong anywhere? I guess. Aug 13, 2014 8:12:31 GMT -5
ocycd: Here's my random thought... a week from tonight I'm seeing The River and I'm too excited to sleep! Oct 28, 2014 0:08:20 GMT -5
24601: How many times have you all seen the show or seen him at the stage door? Nov 5, 2014 15:53:50 GMT -5
ocycd: I only saw the show the one time... and I didn't wait at the stage door or before or after... but I'm thinking I might have to go back in January to see how the show has changed! Nov 9, 2014 22:10:04 GMT -5
24601: 2 River Ticket - Jan 25th. Good seats. PM me if interested. Nov 26, 2014 20:15:09 GMT -5
