    Sure Sam Rockwell is incredible, but did the academy completely forget about Steve Carell’s incredible performance or something? 

    The way the film handled 9/11 was extremely impactful and powerful. I’m really desensitized when it comes to 9/11 like I’ve seen the worst possible footage, but I was overcome with an immense sadness and I just wanted to cry.

    A mother reuniting with her daughter almost broke me.

    I started watching these mini-series Shane’s been producing as guilty pleasure material, but they truly turned into captivating entertainment from the very first minute of that Tana documentary.

    Are some of the things he’s done bad? Yes
