Just as Academy Award voters cast their ballots, the movie was named Best Picture at the 71st British Academy Film Awards, more commonly known as the BAFTAs. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri also won Best British Film – despite its story’s location, it qualified because of its financing and because it is was directed and written by British-born Martin McDonagh. The BAFTAs are the British equivalent to the Academy Awards. The Academy Awards are on March 4 in 2018, with voting in high gear.

That she served as a preliminary mermaidenly siren in the fog became clear only later. FOG is how Frank Gehry was once known, when he signed his name Frank O. Gehry. And Frank happens to be the name of the impresario in Mozart's opera, which is a parody of putting on an opera. A speaking role, Frank contends with competing prima donnas (Hila Plitmann and So Young Park). A tenor (Joshua Dennis) and a bass-baritone (Christopher Job) attempt to placate the egotistical sopranos vying for the starring role by reminding them of the higher purposes of their art.

Similarly, the critically acclaimed sitcom, “The Good Place,” starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson, has earned roughly 36 percent of its revenue from digital advertising, NBC said. About three-quarters of the revenue NBC made from the 2015 pilot of “Blindspot,” for instance, has been earned the old fashioned way. But NBC was less savvy back then in extracting money from viewers who preferred streaming. NBC understands the reason for the advertising community’s skepticism concerning the number of people who watch shows via streaming, however.

Gordon Thomas at the grave of President William Howard Taft in Arlington National Cemetery. “For some reason, he thought I would be interested in history and the presidents,” Gordon said. I asked Gordon: Did your grandfather bribe you to show an interest in the presidents? “That’s the lesser-known president buried in Arlington National Cemetery,” Gordon said, nodding toward the granite shaft marking the 27th president’s final resting place. (I didn’t ask whether Gordon said when he met each man, “I’m going to visit your grave one day.”)Traveling with his two daughters on college visits gave Gordon more opportunities to find dead presidents.
