Re: 2019 Movie Awards

There has been a heck of a gamble on Steve Coogan to win Best Actor at the BAFTAs but I don't quite understand it. BAFTA kind of like him but what is this gamble based on!? https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0176869/awards Is this similar to the Emmanuelle Riva to win Best Actress ahead of the likes of Jes...

Re: BBC Icons

Alan Turing wins his category and jumps to joint favourite alongside Nelson Mandela at 6/5 at Skybet. David Bowie also through but he barely moves the proverbial needle and is a general 16/1 fifth favourite. If this is a straight vote then Alan Turing probably could win purely based on a rabid LGBT ...

Re: Super Bowl Novelty Bets

Re: 2019 Movie Awards

It seems that the stories surrounding both Peter Farrelly and Nick Vallelonga (he has since deleted his Twitter account) could genuinely torpedo any chances of "Green Book" at the Oscars. Playing dirty? Well...yes. I've always treated award shows as a sporting event but it's more politics now partic...

Re: BBC Icons

Huh. Well...there's the first surprise as Nelson Mandela wins the 'Leaders' category ahead of Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher. I can't imagine FDR got too many votes apart from some ex-pats. Those that lean right in their politics must be busy or preoccupied to have forgotten to vote for thi...

Re: 2019 Movie Awards

Glenn Close may very well have that it's 'their year' vibe in regards Oscar that the likes of Jeff Bridges, Sandra Bullock and Julianne Moore had but I feel Olivia Colman will never have a better chance of momentum here and the goodwill of BAFTA wanting her to win at their own awards even if ultimat...

BBC Icons

Well we had that slight nonsense of BBC's "Greatest Britons" back in 2002 which was won by Winston Churchill. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/2509465.stm "The Greatest American" organised by Discovery Channel & AOL back in 2005 was hijacked by a conservative bloc vote as Ronald Reagan inexp...

Re: 2019 Movie Awards

BAFTA nominations are out on a Wednesday which seems weird...even more weirder is that "The Favourite" leads in number of nominations. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/entertainment-arts-46807535 https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-46794243 "Bohemian Rhapsody" can't win Best Film here so the...
