    Having Lady Bird and Get Out in this is just beyond me. I just can’t. Greta and Jordan did a phenomenal job on their respective movies, at least IMO. I am glad most people would agree.

    Buddy, your choices are incredulous. Cooper for SLP? Gerwig? Blanchett? Watts? Jennifer Jason Leigh? Loving Vincent? Your extreme hate for SLP in general? I could go even further but the points still stand. Cmon man. Cmon. 🙁

    I’ll just do Acting and BP. Only 3-4 for each, no particular order:

    Supporting Actor:
    -Jonah Hill – The Wolf of Wall Street (Pushed Daniel Bruhl out of a nom. The fake dick did better acting)
    -Alan Arkin – Argo (Meh. Repeats one line over and over until it’s not funny)
    -Mark Ruffalo – Foxcatcher (Doesn’t do much other than getting shot)

    Supporting Actress:
    -Renee Zellweger – Cold Mountain (Terrible performance. Razzie worthy)
    -Jacki Weaver – Silver Linings Playbook (Love the movie, but this was just a coattail nomination as she did nothing of note)
    -Rooney Mara – Carol (Great performance, but it’s definitely not supporting)

    Actor:
    -Sean Penn – Milk (Hammy and not the same quality as Mystic River)
    -Brad Pitt – Benjamin Button (ZZZ…sorry I fell asleep writing this comment)
    -Bradley Cooper – American Sniper (Alright movie, but this performance is rather flat. This over Jake Gyllenhaal in Nightcrawler?! What!?)
    -Christian Bale – American Hustle (Gaining weight, does not a good performance make)

    Actress:
    -Naomi Watts – The Impossible (She lays in a bed for 70% of the film)
    -Amy Adams – American Hustle (I love Amy, and she should’ve been nominated for Enchanted and Arrival, but this performance is way too silly and ineffective)
    -Jennifer Lawrence – Joy (Obligatory mention. Should’ve been nominated for mother! but that was never going to happen)

    Picture:
    -The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (Boring and uninteresting. Way too long)
    -Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (I mean, come on. This movie is crap. The Ides of March should’ve had this spot)
    -Crash (Preachy, corny, and it hasn’t aged well. Stole Brokeback Mountain’s Oscar)

    To Luca,

    I appreciate your love for Lady Bird and Get Out. I do. But when I watched Lady Bird, it just didn’t take any chances in my mind’s view. It played it safe. It was supposed to be progressive without having to explain the fact that the brother was adopted and without having to further explain the gay character…this is just a progressive excuse for undeveloped characters. I saw it as an attempt to be as generic as possible so people believe they can relate to it. Sort of what a phony psychic does…While I loved Laurie Metcalf in it, I thought Saoirse had no motivation to act the way she did other than the fact that she was an emotional teenager. Good enough for life, not good enough for the movies. I’m not asking for a big catalyst, but any catalyst would do.

    As for Get Out, I liked it less than Lady Bird. Perhaps it’s because I am not a fan of Stepford Wives…I’m not sure. It’s tonally inconsistent and no one can agree what genre it fits into, not that it should have to fit into any genre. I resent being told I have to like anything for the sake of betterment of anything by hoards of people. It’s pretentious.

    This having been said, I LOVED Gerwig in 20th Century Women. It’s the best thing she has ever done. Period. As for Jordan Peele, I’ve never really watched anything he’s done, but I have appreciated clips of his work in Key & Peele, which I’ve watched on youtube.
