JLo with Pattinson? Jenny about to do some Oscary acting when she pretends she saw The Lighthouse.
Variety being messy and giving the internet what they want by pairing Scarjo + Chris Evans.November 8, 2019 at 10:32 am #1203171227
Lmao why is Chris Evans even being interviewed for Knives Out? They should’ve paired Beanie and Florence with older actresses like Laura or ScarJo. I have so many questions for these pairings.

Mindy Kaling and Constance Wu… they really had to find the most likable celebrity possible to pair Constance Wu with so that people would actually watch her.November 8, 2019 at 10:46 am #1203171276
This was,is and turning into be a brilliant year for Movies.I hope that winners this year especially Best Picture Winner reflect that.

Variety’s Actors on Actors lineup has been announced (source)
This season will feature the following actor pairings and conversations: Brad Pitt (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”) with Adam Sandler (“Uncut Gems”); Jennifer Lopez (“Hustlers”) with Robert Pattinson (“The Lighthouse”); Tom Hanks (“A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”) with Renée Zellweger (“Judy”); Antonio Banderas (“Pain and Glory”) with Eddie Murphy (“Dolemite Is My Name”); Adam Driver (“Marriage Story”) with Charlize Theron (“Bombshell”); Shia LaBeouf (“Honey Boy”) with Kristen Stewart (“Seberg”); Mindy Kaling (“Late Night”) with Constance Wu (“Hustlers”); Chris Evans (“Knives Out”) with Scarlett Johansson (“Marriage Story”); Laura Dern (“Marriage Story”) with Sterling K. Brown (“Waves”); Beanie Feldstein (“Booksmart”) with Florence Pugh (“Little Women”); Awkwafina (“The Farewell”) with Taron Egerton (“Rocketman”); and Cynthia Erivo (“Harriet”) with Alfre Woodard (“Clemency”).
This is how it should have gone:
Beanie Feldstein and Mindy Kaling; Charlize Theron and Jennifer Lopez; Florence Pugh and Brad Pitt; Renée Zellweger and Alfre Woodard; Laura Dern and Kristen Stewart; Taron Egerton and Scarlett Johansson; Awkwafina and Eddie Murphy; Adam Driver and Cynthia Erivo; Tom Hanks and Robert Pattinson; Constance Wu and Chris Evans; Adam Sandler and Shia LeBeouf; Antonio Banderas and Sterling K.

I’m starting to think Once Upon a Time in Hollywood could fizzle out and not do as well as expected come Oscar nominations. As other films are being released, I just feel like the buzz is fading for OUATH, and with its “early” release I can just see it being left off of many voters lists. At this point, I’m starting to think DiCaprio could miss.
Anyone else feel this way, or am I just crazy?
Thats what always happens with earlier films. “Buzz” is the most overrated tool of predicting ever. I mean The Hurt Locker made about 5 dollars at box office in the summer and took down Avatar which had all the “buzz” and money in the world. Or we can even look at last year with Green Book that had toxic “buzz” and Roma had the greatest film ever made “buzz” and Green Book won. Get Out didnt have any “buzz” at this point in the race. Mad Max Fury Road didnt have any “buzz” at this point.November 8, 2019 at 11:23 am #1203171320
Agree JackO. Buzzes go up and down and then up again.

I love Actors I’m Actors but those pairings are TRASH. JLo and Pattinson is laughable. Beanie and Florence will be sweet but like Beanie doesn’t need to hear what Greta’s like as a director. I do find Awkwafina and Egerton to be an actual inspired pick though.November 8, 2019 at 1:24 pm #1203171508
Anne Thompson discussed some things about a few contenders on her latest podcast:
MARRIAGE STORY: Said she has always been “Gung ho” about the film’s Oscar chances, feels that it will play really well with the Actors branch, states Driver as the frontrunner and while Johansson is not, says out of all the contenders she sees this film as the most likeable one and it has a good chance at BP because “everyone likes it”
JOKER: Sees this film doing well tech nominations, states that the AMPAS voters she has spoken to about this film aren’t discussing it positively; “They’re not talking about JOKER”, believes the film’s in the mix, says “sometimes when you’re too successful it can be bad, look at A Star Is Born”
ONCE UPON A TIME IN HOLLYWOOD: Doesn’t say much but that AMPAS adore Tarantino and that he is overdue for Director and could win.
PARASITE: Thinks Bong Joon-ho will get in Director and Screenplay, says it will get a lot of nominations including Production Design, doesn’t see it winning Best Picture.
