Can someone explain why "Terms of Endearment" looks the way it does?
Okay, that is cool!
R1 I had the same question. That said, this is VERY clever!
Why is the gold man missing for 2001?
The only one I'm not clear about is 1940. The winner that year was Rebecca--the statuette is a woman; is that the dress the 2nd Mrs. de Winter wears to the costume ball Rebecca wore the year before, the one that makes Max so upset?
R4 Because of the plot of "A Beautiful Mind."
R4 A Beautiful Mind = schizophrenic who hallucinated people
Uh, some of them look like aliens.
And the Crash one is black! As subtle as the movie I guess.
The one for West Side Story looks like an Olympics icon.
Shirley MacLaine and the three grandchildren?
I don't get Ordinary People/1980.
And of course EVERYONE knows what should be portrayed for 2005 . . . two guys nuzzling!
R5, I think that must be Mrs. Danvers. If it were the Joan Fontaine Rebecca dress, it would have the hat, which was the most noteworthy part of it.
Terms of Endearment isn't about Jack's character, though, R22.
[quote]Brilliant. I love it. Maybe the show won't suck this year. Oh who am I kidding, of course it will suck.
What the fuck does the one sheet have to do with the show? The Oscars are The Gay Super Bowl and this year they are going to actually treat it like it is. They are doing a tribute to movie musicals, with the actual casts, Streisand, Adele and Shirley Bassey are singing, produced by two huge gay producers. It will be fabulous.
i like the Happy Dolls.
And rumor is Daniel Craig will be appearing nude in the James Bond salute.
If Brokeback Mountain had won we'd see two statuettes butt fucking each other for 2005.
What happened to the '8' years?
All the years are there. Did you scroll to the right when you enlarged it?
1940 is indeed the dress Joan Fontaine wears to the costume ball copied from the old portrait in the hallway at Manderley. It does not have the hat, but it is an off the shoulder dress and it has a flower thing on the side of the lower part.
Mrs. Danvers would never ever wear an off-the-shoulder dress, even if her life depended on it.
great idea; poor execution

No c'mon you know they can't do that on national TV, however he will emerge in slow motion from the orchestra pit in the blue Speedo.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
