  • Haha, I was up early and managed to catch a few minutes of the Webinar, was barely awake and made a couple of confused comments… Luckily, Corey ignored them. :)

    I have to say I was totally speechless - but in a good way. I think it is a beautiful image. The more I look at it the more I’m leaning towards the figure being Galadriel wearing an up do - the hair is in shadow so hard to see the colour. But the white clothing would fit.

    Yes I agree it has to be Galadriel.
    Looking through the casting nominations we've done, I'm struck by a number of faces that return again and again. Will we ever find a role for Oscar Isaac (who didn't get to play Melkor, Mandos, Fingolfin, Fingon or Barahir, for example) or for Krysten Ritter, Eddie Redmayne, Edward Norton, Kaya Scodelario and the others?

    Perhaps we just haven't found the right role; perhaps some people don't think these 'look' like Tolkien characters.....

    In that case, what qualifies as a 'look' for Tolkien characters?

    They have been nominated multiple times, which probably means that some people (myself included) are of the opinion that they have the right look, or at least thought so at the time they nominated them. A few of them - I guess - haven't been chosen because they are too well liked, voters want them for some bigger role or a specific role.
    I have gone through all of the casting nominations (S1-5) and edited all those who were chosen, adding "EDIT: WAS CHOSEN; OK BY EXECS"

    That will be very helpful moving forward!

    In the wonderful joy of feeling good about adding helpful structure, I also started an editing spree to add comments on nominations showing that a certain actor or actress were chosen to play some other role, at the time or later. It’s pure madness, I know.
    I took a look at the casting votes that have come in so far. We have some close calls, so if you want to make a difference, cast your votes!

    I gave a reminder about casting at Mythmoot today, so hopefully there are some folks who are interested.

    Yeah thanks, something happened.
    What? An anime about the Rohirrim?

    Yeah I saw this. Not going to try to dive too deep before it is viewable. Ready to be entertained.

    I’m generally positive to this kind of thing. I’m a bit surprised though

    Funnily enough Topcraft, the animation studio that animated the 1977 Hobbit film, was a precursor to Studio Ghibli.
    Casting nominations have closed! Please be patient, I will post a link to the voting poll in a few days.
    Ok about CASTING NOMINATIONS: All characters have at least one nomination at this point. But we need a little more than ten (11-12?) nominees to give every character at least three alternatives. Please nominate! We have just a few days more.
    Looks like we’ll need something like another 25 nominations for our casting before we can do voting. Keep them coming, people! Just look closely at the instructions before posting. Thanks!
    I listen to the podcast session discussing Andreth and Aegnor. It makes me uncertain if people remember that Aegnor is played by Scott Eastwood.

    To be clear, I do think that it was a good thing you discussed Aegnor without taking Eastwood into the consideration. One could even argue that the casting was done prematurely.

    Of course one can be funny by being serious. Just watch the scene in Guardians of the Galaxy where Star-Lord challenges Ronan the Accuser to a dance-off and Ronan confusedly asks him "What are you doing?"

    Ok. Haven’t seen the movie but I think I get it, and yeah, you can. Not sure if he means to be funny though. Aegnor should mean to be, but I think in a low key way, not being too intense.
