    *SCREENSHOT THIS
    *Joker 2019 will be a critical darling and smash hit box office movie and it will unlike any comic book ever made.Phoenix will give a performance for ages.He will handle Joker/Arthur Fleck unlike anyone has ever had and especially will be most mature Joker ever.This will be perhaps most dark comic book movie and performance ever and Todd Phillips best till date,his most Scorsese-Esque work ever.At the end Joaquin will sweep all lead actor awards everywhere and even the much deserving Oscar and then I will celebrate.

    The audacity lol. Hahaha I’m pretty sure no one will screenshot this.

    I feel like a lot of people tend to forget that not only here on GD but in general

    Agreed. Probably because it may not be obvious at first glance.

    I just did just to prove you wrong. :p But it will be hilarious if the film gets absolutely shite reviews and flops, though I don’t think that will happen.

    I don’t understand the skepticism towards Joker. It looks like a big success and the trailer has me so hyped

    This said, Joaquin doesn’t like to play the game so idk if he’ll be able to win on the strength of his performance alone

    I’ve been a little out of the loop lately, and just recently I’m getting back into watching Oscar buzz and predictions. I’m particularly curious about Adam Driver. Last time I checked, it sounded like his performance in The Report could be a real contender, but now on this site he’s ranked higher for Marriage Story(last I checked he’s 3rd place). What does everybody think he’s more likely to get in for? And does anybody think that having two well received performances (I know he’s already got a lot of praise for The Report in it’s early reviews, and while I believe nobody’s seen Marriage Story yet, I’m guessing he’s going to get strong notices for it as well, since there’s seemingly a lot of hype surrounding the film, and Driver always seems to get praise for all his work) this year could help Driver ultimately score a win?

    I have a friend on twitter who lives in Barcelona and he has seen “Pain and Glory”.He tells me that Antonio Banderas’s performance in this one is best male lead performance he has seen since Casey Affleck in “Manchester By Sea”.He says that he don’t think there will be a performance of this calibre across all 4 categories this year.Last time a foreign film won “Best Actor” was 2011 with “The Artist” but that was a box office hit in US and also very strong as a film so.I trust the words of a man as he reviews movie’s actually after he sees them.Antonio don’t have a “Gary Olman” sort of overdue narrative but seems as he is really good in this one.He has won “Best Actor” at 3 different festivals even Cannes.

    Darling, I’ve seen “Pain and Glory” and I have to say Banderas was very good and would deserve to get a nod, but definitely not Oscar-worthy to Thatcher. Penélope Cruz was outstanding (and supporting) and so was Asier Etxeandia (who was the MVP for my taste).

    LENA HEADEY hasn't got an Emmy for Game of Thrones????? Emmys you need to win her right now!!

    Lena Headey ("Game of Thrones") for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

    If Lena Headey doesn't win the Emmy, I'm leaving GoldDerby forever.

    My predictions, as of right now, are

    Leonardo DiCaprio (Probably the first frontrunner to get a nomination, based on the raves he’s been getting from critics and audiences. I’m not very confident he will win though, since comedy performances aren’t usually recognized)

    Adam Driver (I think Driver might be the one who wins this year, specifically for Marriage Story. He already has a nomination, but no win, and his performance has been getting a ton of buzz.)

    Tom Hanks (He hasn’t been nominated in a while, but this performance just seems too heartwarming to ignore. Plus, the academy loves to nominate people playing beloved real people, and no one’s more beloved than Mr. Rogers.

    Joaquin Phoenix (His performance in the trailers looks fantastic, and everyone who’s seen Joker has called him Oscar worthy. The only thing holding Phoenix back is that he’s playing a comic book character.)

    Antonio Banderas (I expected the buzz for this film to taper off after Cannes, but it’s still going and he’s winning more awards. If Banderas can keep the hype going into the fall, I think he can easily earn a nomination.)

     

    I actually think DeNiro will be snubbed, since his more subdued performance probably won’t keep up with the more flashy contenders.

    LOL @ people still predicting Hanks after all his snubs. He got snubbed as Walt Disney. He got snubbed after hitting BFCA-SAG-GG-BAFTA. He gets snubbed while his co-stars get nominated. You couldnt pay me money to predict Hanks.

    Im pretty sure Driver has a subdued role in Marriage Story too. De Niro is playing a hitman, how subdued can you be killing people and hanging out with gangsters.

    Looking over this year’s potential nominees the one I am rooting for the most is Antonio Banderas for Pain and Glory (: He sure has come a long way since his supporting performances in Almodovar’s Laws of Desire and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. My favorite performance of his up to this point was in The Skin I Live In, where he plays an obsessive father-doctor who gets revenge on his daughter’s (seeming) rapist by giving him a sex change operation! Then he gets involved with “her”! He does seem to do his best film work with Almodovar at the helm as his director. Banderas has never been nominated before and I think this one will at the very least get his first nomination – will he join the short list of performers to win for foreign language roles?

    I am also hopeful for Ansel Elgort in The Goldfinch. The trailer is amazing and although it will be a downer I think it will pack a huge emotional wallop!

    Tom Hanks just got moved to supporting, so I’m putting DeNiro in the open slot. Still predicting Driver to win.

    Scorcese-esque doesn’t cut it in a year with an actual Scorcese film in contention.

    I’m sorry but what? DiCaprio deserves a RAZZIE award for his poor performance in OUATIH. Boy, do I ever disagree with this one! He is truly awful in this movie! Sure hoping calmer minds prevail and much better performances show up to knock him out of any contention for any awards this year!
