OMG MOAR POEMS! ¡y el cómic #92 estará disponible mañana en español en!

It's been a bit of a while, but Page 92 was a bit action-heavy, and I've been a bit busy with some trips and celebrations of the birthday variety. Anyways, today the Oscar nominations were announced and... yeah, well, they were kind of what I expected. Damien Chazelle's La La Land made an absolute killing with 14 nods -- most of them warranted. Hard to see it not winning, albeit Barry Jenkins' Moonlight may have something to say on that matter. It wasn't going to go toe-to-toe with La La Land, but it got the exact nominations it could feasibly aim for -- and 8's not a number you can scoff at, in any case. Meanwhile, Kenneth Lonergan's Manchester by the Sea got 6. Missing an Editing nod may harm its chances, but it's well represented at the acting categories with 3 nominations. Given actors are the largest group of voters in the Academy, something could happen here as well.

Denis Villeneuve's Arrival also got 8, but I think it's on a bit of a shakier ground than Moonlight. Missing a Visual Effects nomination's one thing (I mean, they were important, but it's not like the Ex Machina miracle can happen twice, and I wouldn't say the effects here are exactly on par with the rest of the field either), but missing a nomination for Amy Adams is another. It's a major blow. She's the movie -- it's like nominating Gravity without recognizing Sandra Bullock, or The Dark Knight without acknowledging Heath Ledger. Granted, the movie was very well liked regardless, but new strategies will have to be made up to counter this missed nod.

Tom Ford's Nocturnal Animals had a bit of a rollercoaster before the nominations announcement, and it ended up only being recognized for Michael Shannon's work despite the fact the lion's share of attention had gone to Aaron Taylor-Johnson. I wish the soundtrack had received some recognition, too.

There are some other things to comment on regarding the Oscars, but I'll leave it to here for the time being. I've got some errands to do, and frankly, there are countless outlets out there dissecting the nods. I'm just going to say I'm over the moon over La La Land, so... yeah, it was, a happy announcement for me. Even if we had to say goodbye to Tim Miller's Deadpool.

That's it for now! See ya! :#1:

Por cierto, en la pregunta de: "En estas redes sociales, ¿qué tipos de técnicas artísticas ves? (Puede ser 1 o más de las indicadas en las opciones; si la red social en cuestión no la visitas, dejar la fila de opciones sin marcas)", no pude dejar las redes sociales que no visito en blanco. :( Le marqué que no las visito para cosas artísticas, nomás.

Ahí te respondí la encuesta ;) Y aprendí inglés desde chico. En tercero básico mis viejos me metieron a un taller de como tres meses en el Berlitz y desde ahí me fui por mi cuenta.
