He Said, She Said: Round Two

Posted on by Joseph Williams in Featured, He Said, She Said | 4 Comments

He Said, She Said will be a weekly post brought to you by Joseph Williams and his lovely wife, Palmer. Just because you’re married doesn’t mean you have to agree on everything though…

Discussing thoughts and feelings about everything under the sun, from TV and film to awards shows and life experiences, they’ll bring a unique perspective on each topic.  When they agree, consider it two thumbs up.  When they disagree, consider both sides.  But don’t write them off as typical-guy and typical-gal points of view.  After all, Palmer doesn’t exactly like chick flicks, and Joseph doesn’t get all jacked up to see Transformers 3 at midnight.


How to Make Predictions for Contests

Palmer: Now that awards season is upon us, an annual debate has arisen between Joseph and I about how you should fill out your Oscars ballot. Joseph and his cheating heart thoroughly researched what the critics and Academy say about each pick.  I, with my pure, unadulterated heart, predict based on who I think ought to win.  Example: Joseph voted for The Tree of Life for cinematography based on critics’ predictions.  I saw parts of The Tree of Life, and thought the story was dumb and had no plot. Albeit a beautiful movie, my heart told me this was the Oscars, a contest for movies, not a contest for art on screen. Thus, I couldn’t vote for a seemingly pointless movie and chose, instead, The Artist.  Why should I let the Academy, a group of people I’m pretty sure I have little in common with, decide for ME what I think a good movie is?!

Joseph: First of all, you watched about 15 minutes of The Tree of Life.  I chose it because I thought it did have the best cinematography.  And many make the argument that movies are indeed a form of art on screen. I don’t see why being principled and choosing with your heart has to be mutually exclusive from picking a winner and being a winner.  This debate comes up as I have, for the second year in a row, won the Oscars Prediction Pool amongst our friends.

Palmer: And by win, you mean you cheated. And cheaters aren’t winners. So you did not win. Because you cheated.  (and The Tree of Life was dumb) Read more
