A new mystery is afoot! Benoit Blanc’s latest investigation takes him to the Mediterranean.

#KnivesOut2 has started production on the shores of Greece. Here’s a thread of everything we know about @rianjohnson and Daniel Craig’s new movie. Image
In January of 2020, Rian Johnson talked about what he’d like to explore in a possible #KnivesOut sequel: “I’m always kind of saying, ‘If this movie does all right, I would be thrilled to do another one.’ But a lot has to happen. I have to write a script.” Image
“It’s, ‘What is the next case?’ It’s not about building a mythology around the character,” Johnson said of a potential #KnivesOut sequel in January of 2020.

@KCStar For the #MOscars 2021,
each selection committee had fun
worst performers to name,
that they earn their due fame:
to reduce the #ShowMe State
to some odiferous pile of manure.
Memories of their reign will endure.

#Oscars @mikeparson

@KCStar @mikeparson For Worst Cameo Justin Hill earned the award for his loyalties turned. After Capitol’s siege, 45’s faithful liege to his legislative post returned. Later on Hill erased his account to increase embarrassment’s amount.

@MOREp108 @VP…
@KCStar @mikeparson @MOrep108 @VP Worst Ensemble won the GOP. Ladder-climbing’s crass menagerie for Roy Blunt’s Senate seat helped expose them completely. A dispiriting odd panoply wants a Senate post to stratch their back. Each one is a dubious hack.

The #Oscars would not permit winner Anthony Hopkins, 83, to participate remotely from overseas during a deadly pandemic with a heavy death toll - particularly for people over 60? Forgive me if I feel this does not reflect well on their commitment to #accessibility.
Let me be clear: That is some #ableist garbage right there.
Not allowing Anthony Hopkins to participate remotely in the #Oscars is literally #ableism. 'We are powerful and well-funded, and have the technology for you to participate safely and be heard, but we don't feel like using it.' This is what disabled folks have heard for years.

Film critic @JustinCChang says one day in 2019 his filmmaker friend Isaac casually made a big announcement.…
Isaac said he was headed to Oklahoma to direct his first narrative feature in 8 years inspired by his own ’80s Arkansas childhood.

Oh, and no big deal, but @steveyeun would be playing his dad…
Isaac is, of course, Lee Isaac Chung, and that movie was @MinariMovie.

"I can’t help but marvel at how little we knew what was in store — for the movie, for Isaac’s career and for an industry that would be dramatically upended eight months later"…

The #Oscars created confusion for some Los Angeles residents hoping to get a COVID-19 test.

@jessicagelt explains…
A COVID-19 testing site was relocated from the front of Union Station to the backside of the complex to accommodate Oscars festivities.

That had consequences:…
“A lot of this is just terrible planning," a resident said.

A staff member for Curative, which runs the testing site and relocated it April 1, called the move “a fiasco.”

As you can see, some local residents weren't happy about the ceremony. Here's why…

Notte degli #Oscars un po' del cavolo, nei toni raffazzonati propri di questi ultimi dodici mesi: in diretta da una stazione ferroviaria, con un pezzo soul di Stevie Wonder per ricordare i defunti del 2020, con il Miglior Film premiato prima dei Migliori Attori...
...e i Migliori Attori che parlano per un totale di 30 secondi (il solo discorso di Frances McDormand, perché Anthony Hopkins alle 5 del mattino ha pensato bene di rimanersene a Londra a dormire).
Vincono due attori giganteschi per due film non così giganteschi, in cui curiosamente entrambi recitano quasi nel ruolo di sé stessi: il protagonista di "The Father" si chiama Anthony e dice di essere nato il 31 dicembre 1937 (proprio come Hopkins)...

How to get started with Feet Pics Selling.

#1. Get a Pedicure
One thing I love about the feet pics industry is that they are not judgmental. So, yeah, no one will call your feet names or ugly.

Nevertheless, to beat any arguments, you want to get a pedicure for your feet...
if this is the business you want to try out.

And apart from the dead skin cells that are rubbed off the bottom of the feet using a rough stone, with the right pedicure, your skin will look spotless due to the granular exfoliation, moisturizing, and soft massages.
And the result?

You will attract the best buyers.

Call to action: locate a pedicure around you or ask a friend for a recommendation and get it done. 3.Set up social media handles & Fetish Community accounts
At this point that your feet are being massaged and fine-tuned to

Danish film director Thomas Vinterberg took home the award for Best International Feature Film at the #Oscars for ‘Another Round.’

Here is the tragic story about the film:…
The film discusses emotional exploration and escapism, themes that took on a deeper meeting after Vinterberg’s 19-year-old daughter, Ida, died in a car accident four days into shooting…
Ida planned to play Mikkelsen’s daughter in the film.

Rather than completely halt the movie, Vinterberg decided to honor Ida’s love for the film by finishing the shoot.…

El español con más nominaciones a los #Oscars en categorías abiertas (todas menos “Mejor película extranjera”) es Néstor Almendros, con 4 nominaciones (ganó un Oscar por "Days of Heaven"). Néstor era hijo d Herminio Almendros, prestigioso pedagogo albaceteño exiliado.
Abro hilo🧵
Herminio Almendros nació en 1898 en Almansa, hijo de ferroviario y ama de casa. Tras acabar los estudios de magisterio continuó su formación en la Escuela de Estudios Superiores de Magisterio de Madrid, vinculada a la Institución Libre de Enseñanza. Fue el nº 1 de su promoción.
Almendros fue un destacado introductor en España de la pedagogía Freinet, que podemos ver representada en la ficción por el maestro que encarnó Fernando Fernán Gómez en "La lengua de las mariposas". Freinet creó el "materialismo escolar" desd la tolerancia krausista y el marxismo

OK, let’s do this. It’s the #Oscars ... Here’s my thread.
TBH, I didn’t see a bunch of the films so I don’t have as strong of feelings about tonight as usual.

But I welcome Laura Dern in a cloud with all of my heart.
Loved Regina King’s opening. Honest and compelling.

I’m sitting down to watch (and live-tweet) the #Oscars, and Black talent and stories may take the night. Like a lot of things happening right now, signs of progress are also signs of just how far we have to go. (1/6)
For every #Moonlight that illuminates the breadth and depth of Black lives, and for every #JudasandtheBlackMessiah that tells the truth about racism in law enforcement and politics, there are a hundred movies and TV shows doing just the opposite. (2/6)
Tonight, I’m looking forward to celebrating Black art and artists like @ViolaDavis, #JudasAndTheBlackMessiah, and of course the late, great Chadwick Boseman. But in addition to celebrating the best, we must also challenge the rest. (3/6)

Are you ready for the #Oscars ?

Here are five things fans should look for during the 93rd Academy Awards Image
"Nomadland" is the clearest best picture Oscar frontrunner in years.

Keep an eye on director Chloe Zhao. She has a chance to equal Walt Disney's record of four #Oscars in one night Image
Glenn Close received her 8th nomination for her transformational performance as a tough-as-nails grandmother in "Hillbilly Elegy," but the film drew widespread scorn.

If she fails to win again, she will be tied with the late Peter O'Toole as the Academy's most reliable runner-up Image

1/. Tonight I happened upon the grave of William Friese-Greene, “inventor of cinematography”

Born William Greene, he added his wife's name

In 1889, Friese-Greene patented his 'chronophotographic’ camera, which could take ten photographs per second, using celluloid film. #Oscars
2/. Any money Friese-Greene earned he ploughed back into his inventions, going bankrupt 3 times & dying in poverty

His son, Claude, continued to his father's work, shooting "The Open Road", offering a rare portrait of 1920s Britain in colour. #Oscars2021
3/. Just 50 years later, a very different type of documentary about travelling through Britain was made

"Black Safari" is about a group of African explorers who go on a safari by boat along Liverpool-Leeds canals to explore "darkest heart of Lancashire" #Oscars #OscarsSoWhite
