    Cate Blanchett is great, but not one of the all time greats.
    (I’m prepared to be yelled at, everyone at Gold Derby worships her lol)

    Naw you’re safe. You didn’t say Natalie Portman

    Not an opinion but I’m surprised back in the late 90s and early 2000s when teen pop/movie was big, there wasn’t a single teen/coming-of-age movie that got a Oscar nomination. even on screenplay. I almost would’ve thought American Pie would get a screenplay nomination.

    Well gonna kms by lying down on the tracks of this unpopular opinion train: Zero Dark Thirty and its director and lead actress get way more praise than any of them deserve. True, Bigelow got shit on for that waterboarding non-issue, but even if that weren’t the case I wouldn’t have wanted it to win; in a year of weak nominees it wasn’t even the least weak.

    Ang Lee was the rightful winner for director that year. Asians don’t play when it comes to attention to details and has more variety and range in films than Innaritu. It’s kinda amazing he beat Spielberg twice.

    She’s TERRIBLY overrated especially on this site. And I do like her, but she does not need to be the winner of every poll and elimination game here ever like come on.

    I think Blanchett is one of the greats but she’s worshipped way too much on here. Jessica Chastain too.

    lmaooo I don’t know why I bother with elim games when her in Blue Jasmine or DDL in There Will be Blood are in the game. What suspense. And now she’s trouncing the GOAT competition too!

    It helps her cause that this crowd probably doesn’t know the body of work of old-timers like Bergman as well as Blanchett’s.

    Hence why i was more invested in starting the screenplay games so we can see some surprises and expose the stans behind the films. Both the screenplay games have had some surprises. I’m surprised by the neck-to-neck lead in the adapted screenplay game and the Manchester lead in original lol…

    While we’re at it: is there a secret cult around Atonement in this site? I didn’t know there were people so passionate about this movie. Maybe there’s a different cut out there that I haven’t seen, that makes it a good film somehow

    There must be an X-rated sex scene that was cut from our viewings because I don’t see it either lol. However, I didn’t know people liked whiplash that much. J.K. Simmons character is the highlight of the movie but the rest of the movie is as basic as it gets.

    There is indeed a cult around Atonement, and I personally act as cult leader.

    Yeah, the Whiplash worship is THE WORST. I mean, La La Land had a lead that one could at least call cute. But Teller is a prick. Chazelle’s script for Grand Piano is actually a better one, and that film (that I also don’t like, but…) has a smarter use of music than Whiplash. Go figure these cults!

    I’m so proud of GD to knock out La La Land in my screenplay game as early and deserving as it did. Though I didn’t expect it to be the 3rd movie out LOL.

    The Fighter was treated so harshly, not sure if it’s the hate for David O’ Russell or Mark Wahlberg but it isn’t the worst original screenplay this century, not when Borehood and American Noise(Hustle) exist.

    La La Bland had the cult first. Led the Best of 2016 elim game by tons of points, posed to be the undisputed winner, then once it lost Best Picture the stan supporters all fled and it bombed. Sweet, sweet victory. At least Whiplash had more interesting characters and a better storyline than LLL’s after school special, high school drama, screenplay 101-tier plot.
