New Yorker Oscar-Vorschau bis 2018

6 Comments

Im New Yorker Magazine ist ein sehr lustiger Artikel der vorrauschaut, wer und was in den kommenden Jahren einen Oscar erhält. Besonders gut gefällt mir der Text über “Avatar 2″:

A tremendous coup for Twentieth Century Fox, which, amid rancor, took this much heralded project away from the director James Cameron and reassigned it to Tom Hooper, an Oscar winner for “The King’s Speech,” in 2011. Hooper reportedly cut the climactic undersea battle between the hostile Space Marines, with their quantum harpoons, and the harmonious yet wrathful team of Water-Na’vis, replacing it with a gentle lakeside chat in which a sobbing Cha’ales (Daniel Radcliffe), the newly crowned leader of the tribe, explains to Queen Ka-Mila (Helena Bonham Carter) that he never really wanted to be blue. As a bonus, Alan Rickman was named Best Supporting Actor for his interpretation of Puph, the Tragic Dragon.

Über die ganzen anderen Filme kann man hier noch weiterlesen.

    Sehr amüsant! Unterwasserkampf mit Space Marines – ich würds mir anschauen ^^

    7x derselbe Gag – landet man beim New Yorker, wenn einem die Genies von Spiegel Online nicht mehr gebrauchen können? Und da fragt sich noch einer, warum es eine Medienkrise gibt…

    ich glaube, dass das wiederholende element einer der witze dieses artikels sein soll..all zu subtil schien mir das nicht, aber ist es anscheinend doch…;)

    Jo, aber er wird nicht lustiger, wenn man ihn 7x hintereinander bringt. Es herrscht Verwunderung ob des Oscargewinns von THE KING’S SPEECH, ja mei, gut, aber dass die Academy jährlich nicht zwingend den besten Film prämiert, ist ja ein alter Hut (Shakespeare in Love, A Beautiful Mind, The Departed, etc.) und gehört inzwischen zur Veranstaltung dazu wie der rote Teppich. Wahrscheinlich ist es einfach nicht mein Humor, wenn jetzt einer kommt und humoristisch prognostiziert, dass die nächsten sieben Jahre stocksteife britische Königsdramen den Oscar gewinnen.

    wahrscheinlich ist es das. ich fand das ganz lustig, das jetzt alle oscar gewinner filme nur noch so königsgeschichten sind. schwamm drüber.

    (übrigens: shakespeare in love ist weitaus besser als man oberflächlich betrachtet denkt…hohe drehbuchkunst in reinform…)

    Putting The Cost Of The ESA’s Rosetta Mission In Perspective

    "So what do we get for our €1.4bn? Rosetta is both an astounding feat of engineering (catapulting a tonne of spacecraft across millions of kilometres of space and ending up in orbit around a comet just 4 km across) and an extraordinary opportunity for science (allowing us to examine the surface of a lump of rock and ice which dates from when the Solar System formed).

    Like a lot of blue-skies science, it’s very hard to put a value on the mission. First, there are the immediate spin-offs like engineering know-how; then, the knowledge accrued, which could inform our understanding of our cosmic origins, amongst other things; and finally, the inspirational value of this audacious feat in which we can all share, including the next generation of scientists.

    Whilst those things are hard to price precisely, in common with other blue-skies scientific projects, Rosetta is cheap. At €1.4bn, developing, building, launching and learning from the mission will cost about the same as 4.2 Airbus A380s—pretty impressive when you consider that it’s an entirely bespoke robotic spacecraft, not a production airliner. On a more everyday scale, it’s cost European citizens somewhere around twenty Euro cents per person per year since the project began in 1996.

    Rosetta has already sent us some stunning images of Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko and today’s landing will, with any luck, provide us with our first close-up glimpse of the chaotic surface of this dirty snowball. If you’re a sci-fi fan, then, you might consider the mission to have been worth its price tag just for the pictures. The total cost for the Rosetta mission is about €3.50 per person in Europe; based on the average cinema ticket price in the UK (€8.50), it has cost less than half of what it will cost for you to go to see Interstellar.”
