Daniels (directors)

Are you looking forward to their next movie? Do you think they've ever fooled around together?

Quite possible. Scheinert has BDF

directors of what?

by Anonymousreply 2March 13, 2023 8:00 PM

No and No.

Based on his verbal diarrhea last night, Kwan must be exhausting.

by Anonymousreply 3March 13, 2023 8:01 PM

R3 Classic moment last night... Kwan at the end (after many minutes of speaking for earlier awards) says "we've already said enough but let me say briefly... " and then talked for five more minutes.

Earlier he had said, almost as an aside, "... for those of us with self-esteem issues.." As I said in the realtime thread, if anyone says they have self-esteem issues, trust them, they do. Too much esteem and too much self.

They're both cute. Not getting the hate.

I don't think they're into dudes, but they'd make a cute couple.

Overhyped hacks.

Are their first names both Daniel? I first thought they were married to each other with the last name Daniel.

by Anonymousreply 7March 13, 2023 8:18 PM

The first one, R7. They're not gay and their partnership is strictly professional.

by Anonymousreply 8March 13, 2023 8:23 PM

Kwan is married as he thanked his wife. I suspect the bald guy to be homosexual. He was a bit on fire last night.

The White one's mother remained paralysed after delivering that.

There's no way the white one is straight. He wore yellow nail polish and gave a Drag shout out.

Odd that there is not mention of anything "in the works" for these guys on IMDB considering the film's success.

I really don't think they fooled around with each other. I'm not anticipating anything from them but hope they enjoy their moment.

Scheinert looks like a colleague of mine who works in IT. And just like my colleague, he pings like a mf to me!

I didn't know who they were before winning this award and I probably won't have much of an idea who they are after winning this award.

Perhaps they'll direct a film I'll see someday.

Sometimes nerdy guys are mistaken for gay and these guys are ULTRA nerdy

by Anonymousreply 18March 13, 2023 8:37 PM

They definitely fucked while working on that project. I like the energy between them, though, and I really like Daniel's personality and look (don't you dare judge me!). I can see them eating off this success for five-ish years and doing another project together.

by Anonymousreply 19March 13, 2023 8:40 PM

What R18 said.

I also doubt they "fooled around together." They're a successful creative partnership which is no easy thing to sustain. They're not sexually curious college roommates waking up from a blackout bender.

I wonder if that had a three-way with the film's editor.

They’re both annoying af. I’m glad these Oscars are done, so the two and short round can sink back into oblivion.

They coordinated their outfits to match one another. They've done all the things.

Their first movie was about farts and this one was about buttplugs and lesbians with hotdog fingers. I’m guessing the next one will be 3 hours of people playing in shit.

Okay, we were at our Oscar party bitching away and looking up stuff on our smartphones, and during the Oscar speech someone screeched "Wait a minute, Kwan is married to a WOMAN???". And everyone else said "What?", or "He's Asian, his family would expect it, whether he's straight or not". So, my totally out-of-my-ass guess is that they're both work and life partners, but Kwan's family is pressuring him into some heteronormality.

So, if either Daniel is here, feel free to comment!

by Anonymousreply 33March 14, 2023 12:10 AM

Come on, it's clear. Kwan wrote Joy about himself and Daniel is Becky... his, "friend."

by Anonymousreply 34March 14, 2023 7:25 AM

And yeah, they wrote a movie about an Asian mother who isn't accepting of her gay child. Ya think there's some issues there?

by Anonymousreply 35March 15, 2023 11:42 PM

Well, keep in mind, it wasn't originally written about an Asian mother. It was written about an Asian father who wasn't accepting of his gay child.

According to their Wikipedia page, there's this about Scheinert:

"In 2023, he stated that in his youth he dressed in drag."

by Anonymousreply 37March 16, 2023 1:00 AM

I also came across this in an interview with Kwan:

"When I was growing up, people were convinced I was gay. They would even through slurs at me. I am not comparing myself to a gay person who had to deal with that because there is no comparison, but because of that, I feel comfortable within spaces where people are allowed to express their gender or sexuality in whatever way they want to."

In that same interview, there's also this exchange in talking with the Daniels:

INTERVIEWER: There's even a drag moment in the movie.

DS: I love drag! There is a gender switch where a guy ends up in a salsa dancer's dress.

DK: Daniel is very convincing in drag when he wants to be.

DS: I look a lot like my mom once I shave.

INTERVIEWER: There are drag pictures of you out there in the world?

DS: Oh yeah!

Daniel S. is out of the Birmingham theater scene. Bi/Gay - played one of the contestants in Pageant on stage about 20 years ago and did a bunch of other queer focused projects

by Anonymousreply 39March 16, 2023 4:24 AM

I thought the same thing about them when I first read up on them after watching EEAAO. Fast forward a month and on a whim I started watching their first joint effort, “Swiss Army Man”. Lots of homo-vibes there.

Then I dove a bit more into Daniel “BDF” Scheinert and saw one of his few solo projects, top-billed of which was this, a film about people dealing with the repercussions of zoophilia:

Can you imagine if Scheinert has contact lenses and a full head of hair? Woof!

[quote]There's no way the white one is straight. He wore yellow nail polish and gave a Drag shout out.

Well, he has a female partner. He says so in this video at the :20 sec mark, and I remember he thanked her in some award speech.

Shocking, I know. Maybe he's bi or pansexual, because he definitely pings to the high heavens.

But that's becoming less and less of an indicator these days. I agree with the comment upthread that nerdy and gay often get conflated. Nerdy men tend to express themselves with feminine mannerisms, vocal tone and body language which often is misconstrued for gayness.

What kind of woman wants a man like that? I mean, I get the idea that toxic masculinity is problematic, but does Mrs. Scheinert want her pussy pounded like Veal Saltimbocca once in awhile?

Or does she get that from her own soft butch sous chef wielding a 12” strap-on?

by Anonymousreply 44March 16, 2023 3:28 PM

They both ping off the radar. Don’t care what “women” they’re with - they both prefer cock.

by Anonymousreply 45March 16, 2023 3:36 PM

I think they’ve done stuff together. Maybe bi or curious.

Putting their actual orientation aside, I do feel a little odd about straight identified men making a movie about a gay girl coming out.

by Anonymousreply 46March 16, 2023 3:49 PM

Also, assuming they’re straight, I wish I had met such emotionally open, sensitive, creative straight guys in my youth. I’m about their age and even the less douchey straight guys were still pretty intolerant, closed off, and hostile to the arts unless they could pass their interest in them off as ironic or postmodernist.

They're the third and fourth. Damien Chazelle (born 1985) and Chloe Zhao (born 1982) are also from that generation.
