    I’ve said it and I’ll say it again. Bohemian Rhapsody’s success at the Globes last year hurts Joker. If the HFPA start awarding the movie that made the most money every year they’ll lose all prestige.

    depends from what pov you look at it. From award pundits and enthusiasts like us on goldderby the HFPA’s Bohemian Rhapsody fever did delegitimise the already fame-hungry show.

    However, if you read it from HFPA’s position, Bohemian Rhapsody did win 4 Oscars so perhaps HFPA were not so off the ball.

    Oh come on stop with this ‘joker is exceeding expectations’ bs.

    Joker and Joaquin were always going to be the big names in contention. Comic Book movies have a huge following and Joker is one of the most beloved cbm characters to exist, it’s just fact.

    Of course Joaquin was going to be a fan favourite, who else was? Jonathan Pryce playing a pope?? Antonio Banderas in a foreign language film??? COME ON

    I’m not hating on Joaquin, imo his performance is the best of the year so far, but all this fakeness about Joker being an unexpected fan favourite when twitter is essentially a cbm moshpit and cbm popularity in general audiences is at an all time high is kinda annoying.

    No one ever expected Joker to make $600 Million at the box office. Or to win the Golden Lion at Venice. Or to drop just 37% in its second weekend. Don’t act like all of its success was completely expected.

    For Your Consideration.

    Whatever prestige they had left was destroyed the minute they gave a fucking Best Picture award to Rhapsody. Especially against four acclaimed movies eww

    Yes, I think it shows they’re gonna do whatever the fuck they want, not vote for something because they want to look “prestigious”. They don’t care about that shit. And besides, Joker isn’t like Bohemian Rhapsody, a lot of people hate it, but an equal, if not higher number of people would consider it a prestige film.

    Joker’s box office won’t win it the Globe. Bohemian Rhapsody won because people really love Queen.

    The HFPA is shameless enough that they may just not give a shit anymore though.

    There was a specific set of circumstances that led to Bohemian Rhapsody’s success at the Globes that isn’t likely to be replicated soon. There are already too many potential frontrunners in the Drama category to call a default to Joker so soon.

    Yeh, this trailer confirms that Adam Driver will NOT be Joaquin strongest competition, both might lose.

    The performance is there. Just see it for yourself and talk to me after the scene with Driver, Alda and a clock. That’s his Oscar clip. I won’t say anything more.

    I think Robert Pattinson will be a regular nominee in next decade especially TENET and Batman will give him box office hold to great extent.

    He has made tremendous shift from being a Razzie nominated actor of Twilight to one of the best young male actor today and an art house SuperStar.

    Pattison has enough goodwill now thanks to The Rover, Map to the Stars, Lost City of Z, Good Time, High Life and The Lighthouse to warrant a groundswell of Actor noms in the 2020s. Hopefully Tenet is the first of many!

    I have my doubts about him being nominated for Tenet, since Nolan films have gotten a total of 1 acting nomination, but for sure Pattinson will get his due soon. It’s only a matter of time.
