    remember last year when a lot of people held their breath for The Post, it had everything going for it: huge talented cast directed by Spielberg about a timely political topic. But, only ended up with 2 noms.

    Vice could end up like The Post last year, underwhelm and underperform at the oscars. Bale and Adams seem most likely bets for a nom at this point.

    lol @ comparing the post to vice. like they could not be more polar opposites. I kept telling people that another boring history lesson from spielberg wasnt gonna happen, but all I got was DAT CAST!!! MERYL!!! HANKS!! SPEILBERG!!!

    As Big Short showed, McKay doesnt direct boring preachy history lessons. He subverts and upends the material he adapts from.

    I don’t mean to underestimate Black Panther, I understand the narrative behind it, the success and what it represents. But, in my opinion it the film itself it not groundbreaking nor showcasing really impressive film-making, I’m expecting a best picture nom but I do believe other films like If Beale Street Could Talk and Widows deserve more of the appreciation and momentum Black Panther is riding. I’ll probably get a lot of hate for this, but the film isn’t a genre-changing film like The Dark Knight etc. The only reason Black Panther is hyped up is because of its diverse cast and BO success. If the cast was entirely white I don’t think we would be talking about the Black Panther an a seriously widespread contender. I hope ampas reward better films like Beale Street, Widows or Green Book.

    Thank god someone said it. BP is a good movie; nothing more.

    Also, I have finally seen A Star is Born (livin’ in a small town is great ’til you wanna see a friggin’ movie). The film itself was good, but imperfect and unless every other nominee fails to deliver, it shouldn’t win Picture.

    This is just a personal thing, but I didn’t love Cooper’s direction (I have really bad eyesight and the motion blur, especially in the opening scene, made me nauseous) and I disliked the editing, for the most part. The cinematography was fantastic,  and a nod for Luzbecki would be well-deserved. The script felt rushed at times–the middle section, especially, dragged (except for a couple scenes).

    The three main performances (Cooper, Gaga, Elliott) were all good, but only two are, I think, Oscar-worthy. Cooper had the most difficult part to pull off, balancing Jack’s sympathetic qualities as well as his major flaws, and he did great with a character that most other actors would’ve wussified or made into a total prig. Cooper gave a masterful performance, and totally deserves Best Actor. And Sam Elliott might not have had a lot to do, but he did it perfectly.

    Gaga. . .unless Colman and Davis’ performances turn out to be terrible, Gaga shouldn’t win Actress. Maybe it was just because Ally was so boring compared to Jack (oh man a shy but feisty Italian-American with a lot of talent), but Gaga’s performance was not anywhere near as impressive as Cooper’s.

    Here comes some sad backlash for a popular bp frontrunner as expected.

    Anyway, it still has those rave reviews and stunning box office in its bag. It will be what saves Oscar from becoming IndependentSpirits Awards and also poor ratings.

    Hope this kind of unfairly “oh,it’s not that good” backlash won’t hurt another great “but popular” film.

    Am I not allowed my opinion? I don’t think Black Panther is a great film–good, yes, above average, definitely, but not great–or that it deserves a Best Picture nomination.

    Someone read me if this is a bad comparison, but I definitely think Roma can possibly win BP if The Artist can win BP. Yes, 2011 was a weaker field, but if an actor and an actress who are relatively unknown in America can be nominated and if a relatively unknown director in America can pick up the Director Oscar, and if a film with quite a bit of French talent can pick up BP, then a film as prestigious as Roma directed by a previous Oscar winner can definitely pick up BP. Yes, The Artist did have some American talent behind it too, but I consider it a French film albeit not a French-language film, and I think it set a precedent that would end up helping Roma. We’re getting to a point where it’s a ripe time for the Academy to award a truly foreign-language film, I’m obviously hesitant with saying it’s a lock for a win considering the competition this year but I wouldn’t discount it based on precedents.

    It’s a bad comparison because The Artist sucks.

    I also don’t think Black Panther deserves a Best Picture nomination and it being a ‘popular’ movie has got nothing to do with it, as much as some people claim it to be. I found the movie mediocre and not even the best MCU movie as its being claimed as. Captain America: Winter Soldier was far better in terms of its direction and writing. The Russo brothers should have been in consideration for a Best Director nomination and the movie itself should have received a Best Picture nom. Another ‘popular’ movie that should have been nominated was Coco. It was better than more than half of the BP line-up last year and should have won Best Production Design.

    Black Panther is not being treated unfairly. In fact it’ll probably get more than it deserves like what has been happening all along.

    P.S. Ignore it if you were actually talking about ASIB. My apologies.

    Y’all what if he was talking about A Star is Born the whole time.

    Wouldn’t that be wild.

    Well, that would definitely be awkward, especially after that long rant of mine, LMAO. I’ve noticed now that he’s talking about a popular BP frontrunner, so I think he is talking about ASIB.

    It could apply to both of them, actually, since my post he quoted criticized both BP and ASIB.

    oh jeez why is everyone getting so heated when ppl start talking at black panther or asib. Especially in a year when ampas tried to introduce best popular film the shade against “popular films” needs to stop, our opinions are valid whether you agree with them or not. We’re talking about possibilities and opinions not what 100% is going to happen. Relax guys.

    This. Even if you don’t like a movie, you can’t just dismiss it immediately. I don’t think BP should get near a Best Picture nomination/ win, but even I will admit that it would be the highlight of the evening if it took home Best Picture, it would mean a lot to everyone! I think it’s a lock to be nominated in several categories.

    Any reason why you freaked out like a crackhead realizing he’s already taken all the copper out of his air conditioner when I said that it wasn’t perfect? Or are you just that insecure, that a differing opinion than yours is “sad backlash”?

    ASIB is a very good movie. It’s just not BP-worthy in a strong year.

    You’re the one that need to relax lol

    No one is “freaking out. ” Stop ur exaggerating words.

    And no, Oscars91 is definitely not a strong year. There’s still no contender as strong as “12years a slave” ,”Spotlight”, “Moonlight” or even something like “La la land”, which seemed really like a BP winner.

    Btw, every nominee including “AStarIsBorn” can be called “oscar-worthy. ” They’re all some incredible works of the year.
