What an odd threesome! Mescal is the only I can stand at this point.

Hmmm. I think he's a very promising actor, but he's made, what, three movies? Seems like a stretch for an award specific to "contextualizing and challenging dominant narratives in film." Is this maybe for the film version of "Merrily We Go Around," planned to be shot over a 20-year period? (He was great in "All of Us Strangers," of course, but his character was a supporting one, and the final reveal was basically copied from "The Sixth Sense.")

Rita's obvious, and I have a feeling she'll deliver a SERIOUS motherfucker of an acceptance speech.

R4 the way All of Us Strangers ended has nothing to do with him. That is the writer/director. He just acted what was written.

He has numerous projects coming up.

What, no shaking and crying?

I thought that was obligatory with any mention of Paul Mescal.

A fag, a bi guy and an honorary lesbian say what?

Isn’t this the type of event that attracts A Listers like our dear Brendad?

Should've given Mescal's award to Adam Driver because Adam Driver spearheaded the fuggos in film movement.

They "celebrate" the biggest star they can get who accepts to appear.

Will Rita suck out all the oxygen in the room with her non-stop negativity and victimhood?

R1 That’s so unfortunate. I’m sorry to see Jacqueline Stewart leave her post at The Academy Museum.

R12 she does that regardless of the situation.

R8 Tarantino is bi? Rita is gay?

Mescal is a bit of an ingenue to be getting honored already.

by Anonymousreply 18June 11, 2024 1:06 PM

R1. Stewart is first and foremost a highly regarded film scholar, so going back to U of C probably makes sense. Presumably she can still do her work with TCM as her spots can be shot at convenience and I’m sure Chicago will work around her schedule.

I think she and the rest of the gang are very funny in the recent ads for the tours, channeling Dean, Wood, et. al. in the “chicken race” parody of Rebel—and Stewart gives great side-eye. Anyone know who the guy driving the other tram is?

R1 I got the impression that initially the Academy Museum were trying to avoid any “Jews Run Hollywood!1!!” agenda. But then the Jews complained about their historical absence.

Is this what he will be honored for?

The above “blind” comes from Enty and apparently got its start from a Reddit screed.

Very sus.

Mescal will be receiving this honor about one month before Gladiator II is released, so some people are assuming this award is part of the promotion campaign for that movie.

Here's a shot of him on the set of Gladiator II. This pic is supposedly from the reshoots which were recently filmed. Previously the film was said to cost $310 million, but reshoots will increase that cost.

Adam Driver is 40. He isn’t “young Hollywood” anymore.

R21 none of the 3 honorees are Jewish

by Anonymousreply 27June 11, 2024 10:33 PM

R24 no one is speculating that. He’s been the most interesting as far as role choices out of his peers and has talent far beyond his years. He is a very vulnerable actor, something many young actors aren’t. He’s booked and busy for the next few years.

Gladiator 2 doesn’t sound very creative.

Apparently it sucks.

by Anonymousreply 30June 11, 2024 11:16 PM

R30 show me where people are claiming it sucks. It hasn’t even been screened yet. Only the trailer has.

Gladiator II is a big studio film. And his first one. They’re never creative.

Why does DL hate Rita Moreno??? I don’t get it. She’s a brilliant performer and a truly good person.

by Anonymousreply 32June 12, 2024 2:39 AM

Rita Moreno is amazing. DL always finds someone to hate. And it is usually the same posters doing it but they are so loud it seems like more people hate than reality

by Anonymousreply 33June 12, 2024 2:57 AM

The DL hatred probably has to do with Chita. Some poor deluded fan really believes Moreno stole Rivera's career. Chits was a great theatrical star but was never going to be a star on TV or movies with that face.

by Anonymousreply 34June 12, 2024 3:37 AM

R34 also, Moreno didn’t cast herself in WSS. Rivera wanted to do the film but the studio AND director said she didn’t have the face for films. They wanted someone who was attractive enough for the big screen, so they cast Moreno. Not her fault Rivera wasn’t deemed good looking enough for movies.
