Cinema Studies – The New York Times
I’ve always been an aficionado of awards season, racing to see all the big-box movies before the Oscars. I’ll stay up late to stream the best movie contender live, napping in between meetings. While the spectacle of award shows can be confusing to me, the combination of self-congratulation and self-degradation irritates me, but in the end the hype always convinces me.
Watched the Golden Globes last week, crying despite myself at Ke Huy Quan gave a speech to receive the award for best supporting actor in a motion picture, I was reminded that it’s much more interesting to watch awards ceremonies once you’ve seen the nominated films. I watched “Everything Anywhere All At Once” in an empty theater last May, surprised to learn that one of the Goonies was playing someone’s dad. Anyway, I was touched by Quan’s speech, but when I watched his performance, I felt influenced by his joy.
I still have 11 movies I’d love to see, a list I’ll probably add before the Oscars on March 12. This weekend, I’ll try to find a theater “The Banshees of Inisherin. ” I don’t like it when people tell me I have to see this or that movie on the big screen – it’s hard to find time to watch all these movies, now you’re telling me that watching at my home is not enough? – but having started “Banshees” on the iPad, I doubt they might be right about this.
My list includes all movies likely to be nominated for the best pictures, plus some of ours critic and Editor would be honored if they had their way. Matching all these views requires discipline, which I briefly put aside last weekend before watching “Tár” a second time, unable to continue with my list for until I calm down the questions I still have about it. (Why did she go into that building? Can I find out?)
If you’re also on your way to see all the possible Oscar nominees (nominations announced January 24), this is a good resource to know where to stream them. I’ll try to see as many of them in theaters, as the directors intend, but since that’s not always possible, I’ll watch a good portion of my playlist in the living room, where I can turn on subtitles and rewind at my leisure.

📺 “The Last of Us” (Sunday): Turning a video game into a good movie or TV show has proven to be very difficult. Any individual game’s story can provide strong appeal, but that gameplay experience is almost never repeatable. I gave my all to this zombie survival game the first year of the pandemic, and if its HBO translation succeeds, it will be thanks to the emotions it evokes. As The Times television critic James Poniewozik write in my review“The Last of Us” is “an enduring horror story about single parenting” that presents “an enhanced version of the everyday experience of taking charge of a vulnerable life.” how vulnerable you are.”

The book is sprawling and crammed with too much, but as Hamilton Cain writes in his reviewit’s “long-term ambition.”
Kentucky butter cake
There are days when it’s so cold and uncomfortable that all you want to do is cozy up in your warm kitchen and inhale the aroma of some butter in the oven. This Kentucky butter cake just the thing. Adapted from the Pillsbury Bake-Off recipe from 1963, it’s a soft crumbled Bundt cake with a twist. Before opening the mold, it is soaked in butter-sugar syrup to make it especially moist and rich. Taste the syrup just the way you like it: Vanilla was requested, but readers used Kentucky Bourbon, rum, even limoncello. (I imagine orange-lemon juice would work for something scented and alcohol-free, too.) Bake it today, then sip on slices throughout the weekend. It holds up well, as long as it lasts.

New York Giants vs. Minnesota Vikings, NFL knockouts: A note for Giants fans: Don’t let the early lead give you hope. Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins led eight comebacks in the fourth quarter of this season, setting an NFL record. Their offense runs through Justin Jefferson, top receiver of the leagueand when these teams last played in December, the Giants were unable to slow him down.
