Funny video- Daniel Day-Lewis/Jack Nicholson/Robin Williams


#1

I don’t know if anyone has ever seen this but I finally found it on youtube. It’s at the 8th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards where Day-Lewis and Jack tied for best actor, and Robin Williams was left out. But Jack being what he said was “baked”, he made Robin Williams get on stage and, well watch it:

Now that’s what I call an award show! See, the celebrities should really be themselves all the time, it’s like a circus with well dressed people. Ha!


#3

I fell bad for Robin though, because out of 3 people, there was a tie with 2. How come they just couldn’t have a 3-way tie if they were going to have a tie in the first place. It’s mostly just saying, Robin, you suck, and the other guys gets an award.


#4

I thought critics were supposed to be more decisive than that.

It’s also funny DDL was still very nice at the very end giving a shout out to Marty.

Well of course… DDL is a proper gentleman. I wouldn’t expect anything less.

I wish there was a better video out there. Looks like someone recorded it on a vhs and posted it years later, with skips in it. Still great to see those 3 legends of Hollywood up there together, and Salma Hayek. :slight_smile:

Just to follow the theme of this thread (actors/filmmakers acting absurd on television):

Peter Falk, John Cassavetes and Ben Gazzara on the Dick Cavett show. It’s in four parts, here’s the first one.

For me, Daniel Day-Lewis is so to himself and very nice (in front of the camera, don’t know his real life), that I think that is the reason he is not as “famous” to the world as say a Jack Nicholson, and that is a damn shame. Not saying Nicholson is worse because of that, because Jack, is well Jack, but it is sad DDL still doesn’t get the credit he deserves. Best actor around.



About your Dick Cavett video, it would of been awesome if someone actually went on a talk show and not say a damn thing the whole time. I just watched the 1st part, will watch the rest later. I like watching old Dick Cavett shows on youtube.

Well, they really don’t say much till the last ten minutes. John keeps doing his prat falls, which are just the cherry on top and Peter Falk just rants at one point about art. I wish television was still as loose a this.



If I ever get big enough in my writing or filmmaking to go on a show. I’ll probably have some drinks beforehand and give them something to remember. Forget talking about the damn film. The film talks it for itself. I wanna make fool out of you, me and everyone in the audience!

Like a Joaquin kind of thing?

I get the feeling from DDL that he’s much more about the work than the fame… And that, I do so admire about him. Even if it is just a public persona, though I don’t think so.

Better than that. They’re better especially when Falk faces the other direction and asks Dick to ask him questions.



I’d go on and probably insult people in the film business (guess who?).

Which every actor should be. It’s art, not young “hot” people raking in millions to get naked in a sequel movie to a comic book, that was once another movie, made into another movie, based on a graphic novel, etc.

Don’t you just love the irony in those initials?


#19

Ha ha, I just noticed that, and he made 2 movies about them being “bad guys”.


#20

I need to be a successful filmmaker first though, not financially but artistically, like Jacque Rivette or else I wouldn’t get away with calling him an asshole.



You notice how he sucks up further to the guys who put him down? Like Godard, he’s trying to remake one of his films.
