Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
We've all seen this show by now. I this one Sennett is supposed to appear on a TV interview show to promote a new book on movie comedy. Out comes Ralph Edwards with the dreaded red book and ol' Mack blanches. But as most, (far from all, though), of Edward's "victims" do, he goes along gamely with it and actually seems to enjoy it a bit by the end. A good gag is to have the original Keystone cops- and it is them, or at least the surviving ones- run across the stage with signs on their uniforms indicating the year Edwards is about to talk about. Its interesting seeing Sennett dredge up memories from 50 years before- and it's been longer than that since this show aired. Edwards did shows with many of the celebrities of that time- and later times but not all his shows featured famous people- just the ones we see today. While watching this, you have to ask yourself: Would I want to go through this? Not on your life. But it can be fun watching someone else do so.
