    I meant to see “Logan Lucky” since I admire Steven Soderbergh and it got good reviews but with so few people seeing it in the theatres I think it has switched to my DVD list. Maybe I’ll see it at the cheap theatre.

    Will Elisabeth Moss ever be nominated for an Oscar? IF so, in lead or supporting?

    I think she definitely has the talents and likability to get nominated one day. And probably lead. But I do feel she’s more like Gillian Anderson, Claire Danes, and Julianna Marguiles in preferring television to film and may remain there for much of her career. She’ll definitely win more Emmys in the future.

    Out of the Emmy acting winners, who can you see winning an Oscar in the very near future and why?

    I think Nicole Kidman’s Emmy success is going to lead to some good movie parts and I could see her winning another Oscar. I also believe Riz Ahmed has a future in movies but he seems more a likely Oscar nominee than winner.

    same question

    Nicole Kidman or Laura Dern … I think Kidman is due for No2 and Dern is like one really good role away from an Oscar

    Ann Dowd could score a meaty supporting role and clench a victory. Laura Dern is so beloved she’s bound to win at least an honorary before the end of her career but a competitive is definitely not out of the question.

    Will This Is Us’s second season be as good, better, or worse than it’s first season?

    All they have to do is just keep doing what they are doing and they’ll be fine. They are not reinventing the wheel. Just great drama that has connected to an audience.

    Will The Wife get a distributor in time for awards season?

    I don’t know. Probably not? But even so, I don’t think this movie will be enough for any late stage awards consideration. This is not Glenn Close’s Oscar.

    What’s one of the worst cases of the right actor winning an Oscar but for the wrong role? And what performance should they have won for?

    I know a lot of people would say Denzel Washington and Al Pacino, but I loved them both in their roles, even though I didn’t see all the other nominees (Malcolm X, In The Bedroom, etc.).

    My pick is George Clooney winning for Syriana when he was the 3rd best performance in that movie. Both Matt Damon and Jeffrey Wright were far more memorable than he was, and they didn’t even get nominated! I think his career-best work is easily The Descendants and that he deserved to win for that performance, but because he didn’t have the I.O.U. hanging over his head anymore, the Oscar voters felt free to waste that award on Jean Dujardin for The Artist, who really wasn’t bad… just nowhere near the level of emotional vulnerability that Clooney portrayed in The Descendants.

    For me, I haven’t seen James Cagney as George M. Cohan in Yankee Doodle Dandy, but I still would much rather he have won the award for White Heat. He was so amazing in that movie, “Made it, ma! Top of the world!” The year he won the Oscar could have gone to Gary Cooper for playing another real-life person, Lou Gehrig in The Pride of the Yankees. That final “Luckiest man in the world” speech he gave was maybe the best acting scene Cooper EVER did.

    I can think of so so so many, but I’ll only name two:

    The first actor that pops into my head is definitely Leonardo DiCaprio for The Revenant, he should’ve won for The Wolf of Wall Street.

    The second actor I can think of, while I might dislike her, is Emma Stone. While I don’t believe she was worthy of her Oscar AT ALL (I know others believe otherwise and that’s okay), I think she did a much better job in Easy A. And if she were nominated back then, I would’ve awarded her for that over LLL for sure.

    Not to get off topic, but I love, love, LOVE the irony that you would literally switch Natalie Portman and Emma Stone’s Oscar wins. I’d be totally fine with that, it’s just too bad the Oscar rarely recognize comedic performances otherwise Rachel McAdams would have won Supporting Actress for Mean Girls, or at least been nominated. I also %1000 support everything you said about Leonardo DiCaprio being most Oscar worthy for The Wolf of Wall Street. I told my mom that I think Leo could have played Matthew Mcconaughey’s role better than Mcconaughey, but he could could not have done the same for DiCaprio’s role in TWOWS. I loved Dallas Buyers Club and the performances, but Leo losing the Oscar for such an obvious achievement in ACTING (that qualuddes scene LMFAO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jP5e2XJsB_4) was a disappointment, in my eyes.

    Ellen Burstyn. She beat Gena Rowlands for A Woman Under the Influence, which is probably one of the top 3 performances by a leading actress from the 70s. She even beat Dunaway in Chinatown, which is probably her best film performance behind Network. Burstyn should have won for Requiem for a Dream. She is even better than Portman in Black Swan and is definitely the best performer in an Aronofsky film (which is really saying something).

    Was that the same year? Lol I didn’t even realize, whoops. Definitely not intentional irony whatsoever. There were so many worthy performances in that year I wish I could’ve awarded a bunch of the nominees tbh (but Natalie was hands-down my favorite). I was just thinking, you know, performance-wise, since I preferred Easy A over LLL (I might dislike that movie to no end, but I can give credit where it’s due.)

    He did such an incredible job with that role, I couldn’t have imagined anyone else as Jordan Belfort. I’ll always firmly believe he deserved it more for that vs. The Revenant (even though he put a lot of effort into it.) And sure, McConaughey did a good job as Ron Woodruff, but his performance isn’t as memorable to me as DiCaprio’s (oh, and I agree completely about the role swapping thing). That entire quaalude scene was A+, this is another scene worth highlighting, imo (had to erase your link in order to include mine lol): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbS5I-QLvJ0

    Jennifer Lawrence should have won for Joy or Winters Bone

    Sandra Should have won for Gravity

    Heath Ledger should have won for brokeback Mountain
