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

McDormand mira al horizonte con cara compungida durante más de una hora. Los otros 5 minutos son viajes y algún relato de otros nómadas. Alguno encontrará placer en los detalles de su micromundo y su pretendida poesía. #Nomadland Image

Both were nominated for best supporting actor #Oscars2021…
.@GlennWhipp: "One Night in Miami" not being nominated for Best Picture was a disappointment for a movie that, after its successful Toronto Film Festival premiere, had positioned itself as an early best picture candidate…

El lunes 15 de marzo se anuncian las nominaciones al #Oscar y aquí os traemos las 17 películas imprescindibles de cara a los #Oscar2021 , a una semana de las nominaciones. ¡Empezamos!

#Borat2 En condiciones normales, una secuela de una comedia tendría nulas opciones en los Óscar, pero el regreso del periodista kazajo interpretado por Sacha Baron Cohen ha llegado en el año adecuado.
#Da5Bloods #HermanosDeArmas La película de #SpikeLee para #Netflix parecía haber perdido fuelle poco después de su estreno, pero ha ido recobrando opciones con el paso del tiempo y ahora lo raro sería que ni siquiera estuviera nominada.
