Ellen interview  ;)

Thanks for the link.  They have fine chemistry.  Is there a video of her presenting at the GG?

Thanks Jim.  We'll have to wait until the "season" is over, but I was a bit surprised at some of the choices for noms so far.  It seems like there might be a move toward films that are more commercially successful over ones of greater artistic merit but much lower theater grosses.

I suppose there will always be a tension between the academy seeking great ratings for its show in order to promote the overall business and them giving awards to the very best films even if not many theater goers actually see most of the more artsy titles.

The GG people have figured out how to present a show many enjoy watching, but I have always felt there are "smaller" films of superior quality never having a chance to be recognized and exposed to a large audience on such a show.

BTW, I've asked one of the employees if I could have the MQOS standee.  I hope he calls ne back.  :)  They used sort of a miniature one with the two main characters.  It's pretty nice if a little too much golden.

Interesting new serious minded Irish interview with Saoirse.  She's been interviewed before by this lady (Sinead Burke) who is a well known academic & activist in Ireland.  Skip past the first 30 minutes to the start of the interview.

At 1:03 and 1:04 Saoirse is for sure talking about the incident where she was crying at the Met Gala in 2016.  She explains why.  It's the most embarrassing industry moment that she can recall.

I saw that and was rather amazed she brought it up. Her explanation was more benign than what had been insinuated on the old IMDB board, where I took umbrage to what I saw as unsubstantiated gossip designed to damage her. Looks like I was mistaken. Having no real information myself and understanding it's none of my business, I'm going to go with what Saoirse says was the reason.

Saoirse will be working on The French Dispatch in the next few weeks.  Kate Winslet will also be working on it for a few days.  Go to 2:42 on the BBC2 radio show link below.

Good news....I'm happy she has been working a fair amount lately.

Saoirse has a habit of craning her neck forward.  It's not good posture.  End up with neck problems that way.

I had meant to post the following a few days ago: Jeff Wells is easily one of the mot serious cinephiles writing today.  He just listed the best films of the last nine years the other day, and two were Saoirse projects.  Obviously, the two named were Brooklyn and Lady Bird.

It's pretty impressive for an actress who isn't even 25 years old yet.

Frances Ha made it onto the list too.  That's two for Greta.  There may be some seeds of Lady Bird in Frances Ha.

Hey All! I was wondering if anyone has a rip of the Movies That Made Me interview. They never posted the full thing on their youtube and you can't download it / watch it outside of the UK. Can't seem to find it anywhere else either, unless I'm missing something

Thanks!

Is there a video featuring Saoirse? I don't remember seeing that.

Ten minute excerpt at the link below.  But not the full thing.

I've said it before and I'll say it again.  Saoirse has terrible neck posture.  If she held her head up straight she'd be a good inch taller.
