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.
I enjoy the humor of Jackie Mason, though I also am quick to realize that his stand-up routine is NOT for everyone. First off, some will be alienated by him because of his frequent use of the f-word (Imdb won't let me write it). He's not a comedian to watch with your kids or grandma. Second, he is a libertarian who strongly dislikes our last two democratic presidents. This is bound to offend many--though I agreed strongly with these observations. Third, he is NOT in the least politically correct and brings up a lot of topics that are bound to offend many. Fourth, although he's Jewish and practically the prototypical American Jew, he says things about Jews that might just offend! All in all, if you are uncomfortable about the direction that "The Ultimate Jew" takes, then you are very normal. Whether or not this is so intense that you cannot enjoy, I don't know. He is, at times, very funny in his observations--though I also must admit that he's also very uneven. Worth seeing but I am pretty sure at least half the folks trying to watch him will hate him!
