Well, Anna Paquin won an Oscar for The Piano when she was just a girl.

Yeah, but that was the sort of film the Academy likes. Logan is not.

Yeah, unfortunately you're right. But Heath won an Oscar for playing The Joker, so here's hoping.

He only won that because he was dead.

So if he lived, do you think he'd still get nominated?

And I forgot to give my summary of Logan. I'll have to get to that.

^Same here. Just bought the 3-disc limited edition steelbook of the movie. Really want to watch the black and white version too, a.k.a. Logan Noir. That version is only available on the Blu-ray release though.

I am told that the only other comic book movie that has ever made the National Board of Review’s top 10 is The Dark Knight. This is quite an honor.

Now if Hugh, Dafne, and Patrick can fake their deaths, maybe they’ll get nominated for an Oscar.

I quite liked Logan Noir! The black and white version was very gritty.

Thanks for that, LightYears! That's awesome!

Yep, The Dark Knight is the only other comic book movie to make the National Board of Review's Top Ten list. Hopefully this will bode well for it's Oscar chances.

Don't get me hopeful. I'll just get disappointed.

Empire has also put Logan on its top 10 movies of the year list: https://www.empireonline.com/movies/...en-films-2017/

Not many comic book movies make it to their top 10 each year.

Thanks for the info on Empire's top ten list! I hope as awards season gets closer that Logan gets more attention.

I know what you mean. I wanted to punch someone in the Academy after The Dark Knight got snubbed.
