Rothman's Osar Picks. Part Three.

Best Picture;  This is essentially a recap of the Report Cards I did on each of these movies.
But at least it's all on one page.

American Hustle"----I enjoyed the hell out of it.  Much better than I enjoyed David O. Russell's other films.  Mostly excellent.

 "Captain Phillips"---Pretty dopey.  Really doesn't belong here.

 "Dallas Buyers Club"---Starts slowly, and builds very effectively.  Very impressive.

"Gravity"---Really, really doesn't  belong here.

 "Her"---Utterly imaginative.  Spectacularly executed. Wouldn't bellyache too much if it won.

 "Nebraska"---Far and away the best film of this and most years.

 "Philomena"---Haunting and effecting.  Some other year, perhaps.

 "12 Years A Slave"---Bringing up the rear.

 "The Wolf of Wall Street"---Bringing up the rear of the rear.

So where's "Blue Jasmine" and "August Osage County"?
They both got jobbed.
But I say "Nebraska".

Enjoy the show.


My books ,"Show Runner" and it's sequel, "Show Runner Two", can be found at the Amazon Kindle Store.
Along with the newer ones, "The Man Is Dead", and "Report Cards".
You can search by typing in my name, Cindy Williams, Laverne and Shirley, The Odd Couple, or Happy Days.
Check them out.
You don't need a Kindle machine to download them.
Just get the free app from Kindle, and they can be downloaded to an IPhone, IPad, or Blackberry.
The paperbacks, "Mark Rothman's Essays" and my new novel, "I'm Not Garbo" are not
e-books. But they are available for people without Kindle.
I have many readings and signings lined up for those, and the thing about Kindle is you can't sign one. If you'd like one of the paperbacks, personally autographed, contact me at

And now, we've got my reading of my "Laverne and Shirley Movie" screenplay on YouTube.

About Me

Hi. I am, according to my Wikipedia entry,(which I did not create) a noted television writer, playwright, screenwriter, and occasional actor. You can Google me or go to the IMDB to get my credits, and you can come here to get my opinions on things, which I'll try to express eloquently. Hopefully I'll succeed. You can also e-mail me at Perhaps my biggest claim to fame is being responsible, for about six months in 1975, while Head Writer for the "Happy Days" TV series, for Americans saying to each other "Sit on it."
