    The weirdest thing for me ‘re TWBB is Dano’s hair.

    Looks as if, aside from the pacing issues, we all had different reactions, which in itself makes LH more interesting.

    I know I’ve made my posts here primarily about praising Willem Dafoe’s performance, so I think I will compliment some other Supporting Actor performances today.

    Now, admittedly I haven’t seen The Irishman yet so that’s a few big contenders out of the way.

    Brad Pitt isn’t my favourite part or performance of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, but he has some good comedic timing and nails some scenes. The violent chaos of the finale works because he is simultaneously charismatic and an unrepentant asshole. He brings out the comedy in this movie.

    Parasite has a lot of great performances, but I’d argue one of the best is Song Kang-ho. As the patriarch of the family and yet very much not the protagonist, he has a tricky role to fill. The third act’s twists and denouement largely are placed on his shoulders (to the point I might argue he’s lead), and he manages to make the absurd escalation fit. A lesser actor would’ve resulted in this crumbling into a pile of cruelty as a moral fable, but he manages to maintain the human element of it all, thus making the message all the more powerful.

    Taika Waititi wasn’t as bad as I was fearing in Jojo Rabbit, thus making him one of the few positive surprises in that movie.

     

    For Your Consideration:

    Best Picture: Parasite
    Best Supporting Actor: Willem Dafoe - The Lighthouse
    Best Animated Feature: Weathering With You, Promare
    Best International Film: Parasite

    The audience is going to have the same, divided reactions. This will spark conversation and I can’t see how that can possibly hurt.

    Divisive is far better to a film in the Oscars than a general consensus of “it’s OK”. With the way voting works, passionate #1s matter more than consistency. Divisive films also mean conversation and conversation means more people watching.

    Honestly feel that Sam Rockwell was way more nomination-worthy than Taika Waititi

    Same. I see no reason why they reach for the safe options. Widen your perspective already, Academy. Open your minds just that wee wee crack.

    I can understand that, but I’d personally nominate Waititi first. Rockwell’s character and performance have much more depth (which they should, since his role is a real person while Taika’s is imaginary), but Waititi had me laughing almost every time he was onscreen, which is pretty much the entire point of his character. If this comedy is gonna make it all the way to the Oscars, then why not nominated the funniest performance (at least in my opinion)?

    With that being said, I think they’re both worthy of nominations. I currently get the feeling that Taika will get nominated, but if it weren’t for the presence of imaginary Adolf, I think Rockwell would be a much stronger contender this year.

    Yes, but also he isn’t great and he’s played a straight version of this role before. Repeatedly.

    We wouldn’t be in the Willem Dafoe situation this race if not for that inbred rat Rockwell winning for an awful performance in the worst part of Three Billboards.

    Nah I wouldn’t personally nominate him and he wasn’t outstanding to me nor did he differentiate himself from his last few performances BUT I think he did a lot more in less screentime as opposed to Waititi

    You say that like it’s a bad thing. 🙁

    I didn’t care for it in this case. I like weird movies too. I’m part of the vocal cabal that loves Suspiria (2018).

    After watching The Irishman – I think we are easily getting both Pesci and Pacino. I’m not sure who would be ahead – Pesci has more review notices, Pacino has more industry clout. I do think they’re both getting nominated.

    That’s interesting because I found Guadagnino’s Suspiria mostly quite tedious, which I wasn’t expecting at all. I guess our reactions don’t always fit predictable patterns.

    His film is overly long. But there’s no mystery about his intentions with the story he told and what he felt he needed to tell it. Johnson deserved more critical consideration for the work she does here. Especially when this auteur exercise could be read solely as the Tilda Swinton show.
