Summer of Soul vs. Get Back for the best documentary oscar if you ask me. Both took unseen footage and created a phenomenal piece. They both lifted me to another place while I was watching. 

Used to be on cookie clicker, my best game is Tetris. I recently played Mass Effect and Bioshock for the first time those are amazing game concepts with great story and execution. Also been playing some Halo Infinite multiplayer

As I’ve already said to the Oscar question over in the GB thread, @sir walter raleigh, it would be surprising if GB receives a single Oscar nomination, and would be something that the Oscar committee would need to explain were it to do so. Yes, there is every chance that the Oscars will keep in place the temporary change to the eligibility rules they used this year, that a film which had originally had a planned cinema release but ended up being released on a streaming service because of the pandemic would be eligible for Oscar consideration. Yes, GB was originally planned for a cinema release, and so you may think it would qualify on that criteria, and had Jackson ended up with a film that would be the case.

He didn’t though. GB was not pulled from cinemas because of the pandemic, but rather because – though a film was originally planned – Jackson ended up producing a three-part TV series and not a film. The Oscars do not do TV series, only films (and, in normal times, only films that have received a theatrical release). As soon as Jackson moved it from being a film to a series, it became  ineligible for Oscar consideration.

Yes, I expect it to receive nominations for the Emmys and the Golden Globes, both of which cover TV (with the Emmys being the TV equivalent of the Oscars, and the Golden Globes covering both TV and film), but the change from a film to a series means it doesn’t fall within the Oscars remit of the awards being for films that have had a cinema release, no more than the Emmys – with its TV remit – will be considering Summer of Soul which did receive a cinema release.

GB fell out of Oscar consideration the moment it switched from being a film to being a series. A three-part series is not a film. The Oscars do films.


I play mainly time management games, though not very well and usually with the timer off when that’s an option. Also a big Sims fan (with fan-made adult content added), but play is rubbish on this lousy ASUS laptop, which I’m looking to replace with an HP at the earliest opportunity.
