He has a number of howlingly funny moments in Django...
I firmly believe that had Django been finished two weeks earlier, it would become the first film in over 20 years to get 2 Supporting Actor nods. Now the internal competition is just too much and both could get snubbed.
I know I've got a big ego, I really don't know why it's such a big deal, though.
OMG Kate Winslet is a cancer! J.Edgar came after Revolutionary Road!
Intense Leo is hit or miss. When he's in that mode a great director and role can make the intensity feel earned and get great results. Scorsese has brought out the best version of Intense Leo twice ( Departed and Shutter Island) and a good version once ( The Aviator). However, in the hands of a subpar director like the Blood Diamond guy or an off his game director like Eastwood these past few years, then results have been less than spectacular to say the least. I'm very excited for him in Django because he's looking like a mix of Intense Leo and Fun Leo.
Winslet was good and nom-worthy for Titanic (though not win-worthy thanks largely to the dialogue). The awards run that DiCaprio had for Titanic was exactly what he deserved as well.
Ang Lee - The only 2x Bafta/DGA/Oscar-Winning Director!
Meryl on Oscars: Y’see these little babies? These are my best f***ing friends
and they never let me down. Try to get ‘em away from me and I’ll eat you alive.
McTea's meltdowns are hilarious. It takes time to get to know the characters in here but was he like this before Les Mis flopped?
I'm usually pretty good at catching and signing up for advanced screenings, but there's one for Django here on Sunday and it's full.
