    I wanted to point these out, ’cause I haven’t seen it brought up yet, but below the line the Oscars this year are unusual homogenous. Even for the Academy Awards. There are a lot of the same movies getting all the nominations, even in categories that you just don’t see this. Here’s the big two.

    COSTUME DESIGN: Three films that didn’t make the CDG Awards got in, “Joker”, “Little Women” and “1917”. That means, all 5 films that got Best Costume Design got into Best Picture. THAT HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE!!!!

    PRODUCTION DESIGN Not a single nominee for a Sci-Fi or Fantasy film, unusual but also, all 5 nominees got into Best Picture. That hasn’t happened since 1962!!!!!

    Those stats are unusually rare and they both happened in the SAME YEAR! And there’s a sense of homogenousness all across the technical categories this year. Both SOUND CATEGORIES had the same 4 BP nominees in them. There’s an exception here and there, but basically, this year feels like most of the votes in the technical categories went, “Let’s just nominate the five films closest to Best Picture that we can get away with!

    This was unusually and particularly BIZARRE, even for the OSCARS!!!!

    What it does is expose the laziness of Academy voting this year. FOUR films with 10+ nominations immediately shows how this phenomenon is worse than ever now.

    joker and jojo’s costumes had interesting color stories but over dolemite and rocketman? give me a fucking break, just lazy decisions all around. and joker for makeup? painting on a clown face is the easiest makeup job in existence, it’s like giving your neighborhood kid’s halloween look an oscar nomination, just goes to show you the terrible impacts of this shortened voting period

    It’s been happening for a long time now. Since the BP expansion, the majority of acting nominees come from BP nominees. Voters weren’t always this lazy. It’s only going to get worse with the truncated voting period.

    If we’re using this one for Oscars trivia: isn’t this the first time Christian Bale hasn’t been nominated for a film he’s appeared in that’s up for Best Picture?

    He made it with The Fighter, American Hustle, The Big Short and Vice.

    I agree with the posts already bringing up how this is a symptom of overall laziness, which is a shame because supposedly cinematographers vote for the cinematography nominees and so on…

    Some of these technical noms just do not make sense to me. That has to be the reason behind them. Shame.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    Joker was Mark Bridges lazy name-check.

    This quote is just inherently funny. Just the thought of them being like ‘Oh it’s this guy we like who just so happens to be contending for a big film let’s check him off.’

    Yep, also another odd stat, he’s had exactly one film to get an above-the-lone nominations and not BP in every decade since the 1980s Empire of the Sun (1987), Little Women (1994), The Dark Knight (2008) and now Ford v Ferrari (2019)

    Small correction: it was The Irishman that got the costume nom, not 1917. But your overall observations are on point.

    The Costume Design category this year is a travesty. It was the only category in which I only got 2 correct predictions. It’s an awful list of nominees. The costumes for Downton Abbey were superbly designed and perfect, it really ought to have won the category – regardless of how you felt about the movie the costumes, sets, music and the look of the film were all top-notch work that could have been recognized. Joker’s Costume Design nomination was the single worst nomination of the year for me.

    Exactly! I’m still fuming over these nominations especially Ruth Carter’s snub considering she was the favorite to possibly win!
