It'd be a shame to wake 'em at this hour. :P

The cult director (admired for Quentin Tarantino) gained practical experience in the late 1950s as an assistant editor for television. It was on this occasion that Hellman met producer Roger Corman, who is known for promoting many talent.

Twitter remains a source of wonder, revealing that burlesque performer and long term DDP Pick Tempest Storm has sashayed off the stage. There's actually news reports as well...ah well.

Yeah, I posted that in the DDP thread some moments ago. ;)

 

Alas, my teams seem resilient to pandemic, old age, illness and Qualifying Obits. :rant:

I'm guessing because you didn't post it in the Opera thread.  That's OK, I took care of it without considering someone posted it here.  *insert Judge Judy here*

Oscars In Memoriam 2021 segment here.

They crammed a lot more names (95!) in this year, but video was pointlessly fast – blink and you'll miss one!

Did they somewhat synchronize the speed with the Stevie Wonder song? Feels a bit cheap, to me.

Chadwick Boseman as a final name was somewhat inevitable, I guess. I feel a little sad that Olivia De Havilland is just there...? Too many huge names, I guess. But then, they didn't cover 12 months but more like 16, even included Helen McCrory.

So fast it was almost an insult.

 

There were a lot of big names in there across all the elements of film making though.

 

If they had lengthened by 90 secs (or cut the overacted drivel down from beforehand) then i’d have liked a clip of OdeH, Sean, Chadwick and a burst of Ennio Morricone.

The Oscars fuck the video segment up every year.

 

One thing I’ll give them credit for... their full  In Memoriam list here:

 

https://aframe.oscars.org/news/in-memoriam

 

Quite a lot of off radar deaths (etc. Patricia Alphin, Jim Haynie) on there, though nobody particularly notable.

Absolutely! I can't believe they missed that giant open goal

The main winners seem to be films that aren't even out in the UK yet, whether or not you're allowed to go to the picture house to see them on the sliver screen. Maybe that's how it usually is these, I don't know? I stopped going in about 1950.

Glad to see they included Conchata Ferrell who was a glaring omission on the Turner Classic Movies Memorium
