I had a great conflict about going to the Academy Awards and accepting an Oscar. I never believed that the accomplishment was more important than the effort. I remember being driven to the Awards still wondering whether I should have put on my tuxedo. I finally thought, what the hell; people want to express their thanks, and if it is a big deal for them, why not go? I have since altered my opinion about awards in general, and will never again accept one of any kind. This doesn’t mean that what other people believe has any less validity; many people I  know and care about believe that awards are valuable and involve themselves in the process of the Academy Awards and others. I don’t look down upon them for doing so, and I hope that they don’t look down upon me. - Marlon Brando

Well, it’s that time of year again, friends. Meaning it’s also time to fulfill our civic duty, and spend an entire weekend watching movies we normally wouldn’t just so come February 24th — after investing every emotion and tear our bodies can muster — we can watch our favorites get passed over by the Academy. I kid, of course. Or maybe not. Either way, I’ve provided links for fellow movie buffs who wish to catch up before the big night. If you have any questions or trouble with the links, feel free to leave a message in my ask.

I worked with the Academy and Gallery 1988 to create the official 85 Years of Oscars poster. 

Click here to see it in detail!

The brief was one of the hardest I’ve ever had; find a way to reference every single Best Picture winner from the last 85 years. 

Thanks to Gallery 1988 for putting my name forward and organising this whole shebang.

Martin Scorsese designed each year in the film to look just the way a color film from that time period would look. Achieved mainly through digitally enhanced post-production, Scorsese recreated the look of Cinecolor and two-strip Technicolor. Watch in particular for the scene where Howard Hughes (Leonardo DiCaprio) meets Errol Flynn (Jude Law) in the club. Hughes is served precisely placed peas on a plate, and they appear blue or turquoise - just as they’d have looked in the primitive two-strip Technicolor process. As Hughes ages throughout the film, the color gets more sophisticated and full-bodied.

jolieing:

When Ennis finds Jack’s and his shirts hanging together in Jack’s childhood closet, Jack has arranged them so that Jack’s blue shirt is visible first and Ennis’ light plaid shirt is tucked inside it.
In the final scene in the film, after Ennis has taken both shirts home to hang them in his own closet, they are reversed, so that Jack’s shirt is inside Ennis’. According to co-screenwriter Diana Ossana, switching the order of the shirts was Heath Ledger’s idea.

People who weren’t nominated like Paul Thomas Anderson who is like…Orson Welles.

Anonymous asked: Daniel did get a nom!

I know Anon, and trust me I’m oh so happy but I expected that. I only meant that Marion didn’t therefore my DREAM TEAM is incomplete.
