S-l1600I Dewey! (Image via movie still)

When actor Dewey Martin — a longtime favorite of mine for admittedly shallow reasons — died, nobody wrote obituaries, not the Hollywood Reporter, Variety, the New York or L.A. Times. Instead, SAG listed him as having died among a slew of other members. That was that.

My Dewey Martin Obit

My fascination with getting older and death (especially among the famous) has been with me since I was a kid, when I collected obits, and hasn't mellowed with age. Part of it is the observation that people can live rather celebrated lives but are remembered for whatever outsiders remember about them — if they remember them for anything at all.

The female cast of Crazy Rich Asians were named entertainers of the year, by Entertainment Weekly a reminder boost for the film's Oscar potential (hey, there are 10 slots) for Best Picture and/or Best Supporting Actress (Awkwafina) consideration. EW may seem meaningless in the grand scheme of things, but NBR and the Globes are also pretty fly-by-night. Feel-good and culturally important hits like CRA and Black Panther have shots this year.
