    Carol was equally creative and acting pack was much better than ‘Call be my your name’
    Not saying that ‘Call be my your name’ was bad. Not at all.
    Just wanted to know why such bias for equally stunning artistic content.

    Casue it was better than Carol by about a million miles … Carol had good acting in a dull story and not very likable characters. .. Call me by your name had a way more engaging story and likable characters

    We can’t ask each member of the Academy for that.

    Well, it’s an excellent question, considering Carol is leaps and bounds superior to Call Me by Your Name.

    1. The “Carol” year was much more disputed in BP than last year and there were 8 nominees instead of 9.

     

    2. CMBYN had a very sure win in Adapted Screenplay, while Carol had none.

     

    3. The Academy is not a big fan of Todd Haynes.

     

    4. The Academy is still male dominated. Mostly of the BP nominees are male centric. That’s why they are inclusive with gay themed stories, but not so much with lesbian themed stories.

    Call Me by Your Name is much more accessible.  It was even a runner-up at Toronto.

    Carol was cold and lifeless … it had none of the “happy love ” feelings that call me by your name gave ” and then crushed “. I didn’t find myself rooting for either woman in Carol to stay together they both seemed to be “bad” for each other while Elio and Oliver were better together and we wanted them to stay together.

    “Carol” is a stellar film. It boils down to a primarily male-centric Academy not relating to female-driven stories and films. They’re JUST coming around to gays and POC (see “Moonlight,” “Call Me by Your Name,” etc.). Women and lesbians will have to take a back seat for awhile longer, I presume.

    Apart from Cate Blanchett being Cate Blanchett in Carol there wasn’t much to watch in that film. Call Me By Your Name is a great film

    It’s a more likeable film.

    I would put them at the same level but, as Riley and Pulp already said, Call Me By Your Name is an easier film to digest. I myself, while admiring both (and Carol is a better effort in direction, imo), can’t help but loving CMBYN more.

    I love both films dearly with CMBYN being one my favorite films of all time. To my mind both deserved to be nominated for Best Picture for sure. And it’s not like Carol was completely shot out come Oscar nom day. It got 6 major nominations, 2 more than Call Be by Your Name (which underperformed big time this awards season, sadly).

    I feel it all comes down to luck and competition. Plus the Academy is not the same as it was in 2015.

    By the way, Luca Guadagnino was offered to direct Carol before Todd Haynes came on board. Also, Cate Blanchett was his original choice for the role of Marianne in A Bigger Splash.

    Both films are incredibly overrated. Neither couples had legitimate chemistry. Hammer was a miscast and while Blanchett and Mara are both talented actresses, not once did I feel that they were in love with each other.

    And about the male dominance. That’s simply not true. Straight men are far more uncomfortable with gay men than with lesbians. The reason why CMBYN got nominated is because they feared backlash this year.
