    Shannon by a mile but neither will be nominated.

    What are your expectations for Saoirse Ronan on SNL tomorrow night? Will she be funny, will she have a good monologue, etc.?

    I think her comedic timing will be on point but her monologue won’t be that great and neither will the skits be that good.

    More likely to win: Hunter or Haddish?

    H-Hunt is good for a nod whereas T-Had is not, but if T-Had actually is nominated I think she would be more likely to win.

    More likely to happen: Kevin Spacey gets a supporting actor nomination for Baby Driver or Matt Lauer is hired to host Emmys?

    We’re pitting two assholes in equally unlikely situations. So no, neither creep will have the well fortune you want them to have.

    More likely to win, Chalamet or Ronan?

    I would say Chalamet is more likely to win, simply because I currently see Streep as a stronger threat to Ronan than Oldman, Franco, or literally any other contender is to Chalamet.

    Both Ronan and Streep seem to have a ton of genuine passion for their performances and films, while I’m still not entirely buying the Oldman hype and while Franco’s performance is clearly beloved by many, his movie isn’t as strong a BP contender as CMBYN.

    What do you think will be the biggest Oscar snub in the technical categories (Cinematography, Sound Mixing, etc)?

    CMBYN in Song. Both songs will split votes.

    More likely to win: Nolan or del Toro?

    Nolan. But neither is even guaranteed a nomination.

    Hillary Clinton
    Donald Trump
    Kellyanne Conway
    Bernie Sanders

    The most deserving win in all of Oscar history is best cinematography going to “Days of Heaven”. “The Godfather” and “The Godfather Part II” winning best picture are close behind.

    Orson Welles and Herman J. Mankiewicz winning Best Original Screenplay for “Citizen Kane.” A masterpiece of a debut film that holds up perfectly in spite of being made well over half a century ago. The pacing, the social commentary on media manipulation, the gorgeous Cinematography from Gregg Toland, future “Sound of Music” and “West Side Story” Oscar winner Robert Wise’s consistently solid Editing, the performances of the entire cast including Welles and Joseph Cotton, and that iconic “Rosebud” revelation, all make the movie one of the all-time great works of cinematic art, and in my opinion the all-time most deserving Oscar winner.

    Thank you. I appreciate that opinion of yours dearly (no sarcasm). Citizen Kane is a revolutionary masterpiece.

    Now, answering the question, I’ll do an acting answer.

    It’d have to be Marlon Brando winning a lead actor Oscar for On the Waterfront. He single handedly revolutionised male film acting with this performance. His emphasis on naturalism and internalising the performance was revolutionary. It leads to such wonderful, truthful and well realised moments of subtlety such as the scene where Terry picks up Edie’s glove and plays with it, then he puts it on, hinting at repressed sexuality. Every single male actor, and I mean EVERY, single male actor, owes something to this performance. They are all trying to emulate Brando’s silent intensity, his naturalistic, hunched gait and mumbling diction, his visceral conflicted emotions, his method acting shit. All Brando. Simply put, if Brando didn’t exist, Ryan Gosling wouldn’t exist. Prime De Niro and Pacino wouldn’t have happened. Tom Hardy would be a nobody. Joaquin Phoenix would permanently be a rapper. That’s all there is to it.
