There is Another...Critic's Collection for Telluride / More Looks at Post_TFF Oscar Analysis / 200,000 Milestone / Rate Your Films
Good Thursday Everyone...
THERE IS ANOTHER...CRITIC'S COLLECTION FOR TELLURIDE
As I finish collecting ratings from the dozen or so industry professionals about their reactions to films that screened at this year's festival, Indiewire/Criticwire has posted a critic's poll of their own. The Criticwire survey asked its panel to rank the films they saw from first to fifth.
The survey also asked the respondents to make decisions in a number of other categories: Lead and Supporting Performances and Director. Leaders in those categories were:
Lead: Brie Larson/Room
Supporting: Idris Elba/Beasts of No Nation
Direction: Laszlo Nemes/Son of Saul
Narrative Feature: Son of Saul
Among the critics that were a part of the poll are several which are also playing in MTFB's Professionals Telluride; Nick Allen, Alex Billington, Gregory Ellwood, David Ehrlich, Eric Kohn and Tomris Laffly.
Take a look at the complete survey here:
MORE LOOKS AT POST-TFF OSCAR ANALYSIS
I'm continuing today to provide readers links to articles/posts from Oscar prognosticators who are gazing into their crystal balls and re-evaluating their preliminary views in light of reactions to the screenings of films at last week's TFF.
Indiewire's Peter Knegt takes a look at seven films that got an Oscar boost here:
And Nigel M. Smith reviews the Oscar field post-Telluride for The Guardian here:
Sometime yesterday Michael's Telluride Film Blog was the recipient of its 200,000th view. Yeesh. I know that's small potatoes when compared to, for example, Indiewire but it boggles my mind that this space has been looked at that many times by that many people.
MTFB started in late summer 2008 and crossed the 100,000 view threshold on Sept. 16, 2013. That means that it took five years to get to that first 100K and almost exactly two years to get to the next 200K
Thanks for reading, everyone. I hope you find this helpful and useful. Next goal is a quarter of a million views!
That's it for Thursday...
EXCEPT TO REMIND EVERYONE THAT YOU NEED TO RATE YOUR TELLURIDE FILMS!
The People's Telluride publication is just a week away.
