Yes, but nothing that we haven't said on this forum really.

Amy Adams. I'm sort of in love with her.

If you want to call it that, it wouldn't be an inaccurate thing to say.

Have you watched the U.S. version of The Office? If so, were you aware that Amy Adams appeared in two episodes of that show?

I have seen The Office I did know that. It seemed like more of a cameo than anything. They seemed to have just brushed her off when she left.

She is angelic.

It only came to mind as I had mentioned the Office only a short while ago in the counting thread when you listed Adams.

She was also on That 70's Show for an episode, albeit with blonde hair that didn't suit her. Still hot, though.

Were you a fan of That 70's Show?

I've watched an episode here and there but I'm not a fan by any means. I might check it out. She can never not be amazing.

With your rage and upset about the Academy Awards well documented, have you checked out the SAG and Producer Guild awards, as they are considered rather prestigious since the nominations and awards are done by their peers? What are your takes on their picks?

Kind of the same thing really. In the end what's really needed is for really accomplished films to shine through and not the same old, same old bait. We can't have more years with the selection integrity of pitching Project X to frat boys. More 99 Homes' and less Big Shorts, more Tangerine's and less Danish Girls.

I only had a minute or two to answer yesterday but to elaborate: I don't think the root of the issue is that more black actors need to be nominated for the Oscars to have any validity. It's more of a consequence of a larger issue, that is that the Academy's membership simply needs to have more people attuned to the qualities of filmmaking inherent in elaborate or artistically refined productions. It's present to an extent in the technical catagories but when you get to the more notable ones it turns into something that is entirely too facile. It's a sign that the smaller branches of the Academy actually care. Goober, you mentioned about Star Wars not getting a director or picture nom despite all of it's technical ones. The same can be said for Inside Out too. Hopefully, Academy changes can help rectify this to allow for a more discerning and suitably varied voter base.

Yeah, Star Wars not getting nominations in the "major" categories makes no sense to me, if it's as well put together technically as it is. That's mind numbing to me

Hopefully, their changes can signal an end to Oscar bait too or movies that are jackknifed into the last quarter of the year because of their perceived awards potential. It's one step at a time. Your movie shouldn't receive recognition just because you aim it at a demographic that broadly encompasses the bulk of Academy members (i.e. Older white males.) The system needs to be turned on its head a bit. It's a good thing.

Since you're around right now, do you think we could do a little mini blitz? I kinda want to just count right now for a bit

What bookstore chains exist in Ireland? And would these be the same chains found across the U.K.?
