    1917 getting shut out except for a few tech awards is GLORIOUS.

    The collective gagging and screaming on this site and on social media when Joon-Ho won Director will always be my favorite moment

    When was the last time a Picture winner won on the back of only Director and Screenplay wins?

    So, the war movie and the overextended lower quality Tarantino piece lost and the timely entertaining film won?

    I mean…

    I’m going to take Bong Jong-ho tying Walt Disney’s record of Oscars won in one night as a middle finger to Mr. Disney’s well-known racism. That way, its success last night will be even more glorious.

    Midnight Cowboy exactly 50 years ago. Of course this is discounting the International Feature award, and just four years ago Spotlight won with Screenplay as its only other win.

    Technically this isn’t true as the International Feature Oscar is awarded to the country as a whole rather than the director.

    Most of the runners-up aged well so 1917 fans and Sam Mendes don’t have to be sad:)

    Doesn’t the director still get an Oscar though?

    1917 getting shut out except for a few tech awards is GLORIOUS.

    As I’ve said before, there’s something wrong and horribly mean spirited about celebrating one contenders loss rather than the winner’s gain.

    Let’s be clear here: 1917 still did really well tonight. 3 awards is more than any other film this year besides Parasite, and also just as many as Dunkirk. Plus, it won Best Visual Effects, which a lot of people didn’t expect, especially early in the season. My friend was rooting against 1917 just because it beat Endgame LOL!

    At the end of the day, 1917 was simply a victim of high expectations. Everyone was expecting it to win 6-7 awards and it only got 3. I thought I was underestimating it with 5, and that still ended up being too high.
