    Let’s be real. No one of those mentioned would have a backlash like Driver if he upsets Phoenix. Twitter will literally burn the Academy.

    Casey literally had a massive backlash, and guess what? He still went on with his life and career. Sam Smith also got a tons of dislikes on his Oscar-winning clip, yet he still had hit songs, and kept on flaunting his gay ass vibe on Instagram without giving a shit. Rami Malek also just got smeared to pieces on GD, yet I doubt he’d even know GoldDerby exists!

    Neither the Academy nor Driver nor Phoenix nor anyone for that matter should bat an eye about people on the Internet!!

    Let’s be real. Affleck had some backlash because of his personal life but if Phoenix loses, the Internet will rebel against the Academy and will attack voters and the Oscars. I hope Banderas wins the Oscar because he gives the best performance of the year, but if Joaquin Phoenix doesn’t win, the Oscars will lose their lasting credibility in the eyes of the general audience.

    God, this conversation has escalated to a ridiculous degree! No controversy is big enough to “destroy the credibility of the Oscars in the eyes of the general people”, and we should know this by now, since there’s been so many recently. If the Oscars were ever going to lose their credibility, it would have been after they literally called the wrong Picture winner in 2017. There will be riots if Phoenix doesn’t get a nomination, but just about everyone outside of the hysterical DC fanboys will be fine with just that. And I find it nearly impossible to imagine Phoenix being snubbed completely.

    You wouldn’t have said it if you would have seen social media following these wins.

    Mathew Mcconaughey was fairly hated for winning against DiCaprio in Wall Street(huge fan favourite performance).Internet still produce articles about how DiCaprio deserved Oscar that season.

    Casey Affleck was disliked by audiences because of his sexual harassment rumours and wanted either Gosling or Denzel to win.Partly also they didn’t see Manchester By Sea to actually come to an accurate decision.Remember Brie Larson not clapping for him on stage.

    Gary Oldman was hated for winning against Timothee(another huge fan favourite performance).People regarded it as nonsense,I have read tweets saying all Oldman did was wear a fat suit and mumble in old English accent and this isn’t even actor’s Top3 and anyway near to the talent of this man.

    Rami Malek was well,we all know hated a good amount for robbing a win from 5-6 better performances than him.

    Although,Yes Driver winning against Joaquin will bring backlash from internet as Joaquin has recently become fan favourite and he is playing cinema’s favourite villain in a huge movie whereas masses wouldn’t have even seen Marriage Story until it wins something big.

    Wins are always disliked by INTERNET,sometimes it is fair and sometimes it is not.Actors don’t give shite about them as they should not as also Driver should not if he were to win it.

    Folks, Phoenix isn’t getting snubbed in a million years. He’s so winning.

    All I have are negative thoughts

    Had Antonio Banderas down to win this but starting to believe the Adam Driver hype, think it could be his year

    Outside of these forums, Malek’s win is loved by most from what I’ve seen.

    I unfortunately have to agree with you. All my friends who are fans of Mr. Robot celebrated his win…

    The reach of some of the topics here. There will not be any major long-lasting backlash against any of the winners nor the Academy because people in general don’t care anymore about the Oscars; we do, that’s why we make such a big deal out of everyyyyything.
    Hadn’t the ratings slipped every year since 2014 until there was a minor improvement in 2019? (Not sure about this)

    Black Panther, Gaga and Queen didn’t do much difference… something like 3 million I think. Joker won’t do it either and of course the smaller films that most don’t watch won’t make the ratings be higher.
    Most people just want to see the winners next morning just to forgot about them 2 days later because they are not gonna watch a 3 hour+ show of rich people patting themselves on the back.

    i just made a bet with a good friend about Joaquin winning the Oscar. He says there’s NO WAY he wins after the comments made by Todd Phillips and how he trashed collective values of Hollywood and that a hate campaign would spiral out of control yaddayadda.
    I don’t feel too confident but I took him up on it. Cash bet…

I hope Banderas wins the Oscar because he gives the best performance of the year, but if Joaquin Phoenix doesn’t win, the Oscars will lose their lasting credibility in the eyes of the general audience.

    The Oscars had its fair share of questionable moments (Crash and Green Book winning BP, Moonlight suspiciously “lost” to La La Land before the correction, alleged predators like Roman Polanski, Casey Affleck, and Woody Allen still getting noms and wins, #OscarSoWhite) and yet they are still considered an important award. Phoenix losing to Driver is only going to piss off the stans, which barely covers 1/4 of moviegoers, just like TLJ “backlash”. The Oscars is pretty much a Teflon Don so a bunch of angry Joker/Phoenix fans isn’t going to destroy their credibility.

    I want the old GoldDerby back, man. Who even thinks about Twitter having power over Oscar wins? We’re not talking “Best Popular Film” here. And even then, “the media”, the real one, not the social one, jumped in and went after them, that’s how it got “postponed”, at least when it comes to any sort of media having any impact.

    Gary Oldman’s win was hated apparently and then after the so-called backlash what did the Academy do? They gave an Oscar to Rami Malek which of course “the internet” hated too. So, nothing happened. And nothing will happen.

    Anyway, I saw both Phoenix and Banderas yesterday. I wanna see Joker again eventually to decide, but I wasn’t ready to hand Phoenix an Oscar just yet. As for Banderas, I would love to see him nominated, but his performance wasn’t as showy as Phoenix’s (no shit!) and I don’t think he’ll be as big as Driver seems to be. He’s not winning any of the televised awards for Pain & Glory. Those seem to be locked down for Phoenix and Driver (Specially if he goes Comedy at the Globes). I’m sure he’ll win some critics awards though.

    Todd Phillips can say what he wants, what he’s said now won’t destroy Phoenix’s chances. He’s big enough to overcome that and he has overdue factor written all over him, box office and a huge role. He’s our winner right now.
