    Darlings, I say it just in case your delusion hasn’t disappeared (which obviously hasn’t).

    Nobody’s being delusional for discussing someone possibly winning in October for an award show that’s gonna take place in February because we literally don’t even know what’s gonna happen in the next few months lol. This is literally a predictions thread, stop dismissing people as if it will take place tomorrow.

    You don’t have to diss Ms. Thatch. She is deep down team Driver and you will side with her soon.

    Darlings, no way is Joke losing that dildo. His ass is just too baity and over the top. The Oscars won’t resist to award him. Nose is not winning for getting divorced. As I said before, there aren’t the 70s.

    If you’re whole argument hinges on Phoenix being too baity and over the top, then it’s not a very good argument. It wasn’t that long ago that we saw Denzel lose to Casey Affleck when the former’s performance was about fifty times more over the top and baity.

    Also, do you not see the irony of posting all these smug and over confident comments with pictures of a character who famously isn’t anywhere near as smart as she thinks she is?

    How come Meryl Streep knew that DDL was the winner without having opened the envelope?

    She never opened the envelope. We will never know who was truly supposed to win that night..

    Jk. She apparently read the envelope while the cameras were offline to show the nominees’ Oscar clips. I thought everyone already knew this by now. It’s been nearly a decade..

    This is so unrelated but I’m so in love with your profile picture lol

    The most acclaimed female director right now giving the golden lion to a DC movie is too much of a paradox to cinephiles handle. I couldn’t miss it.

    Also, I love how pissed Lucrecia looks since she was probably outvoted. Gotta love her

    The difference is that Denzel already had two Oscars. Phoenix has none. That will make it a lot harder for the academy to snub him again in favor of a much less baity performance from a much newer actor.

    Finally saw Joker today. Could it be that Joaquin Phoenix will be the only nominee for the movie? it has done great box office, yes, but it’s an ugly movie, very derivative of superior Martin Scorsese movies and the only real reason to see it is for the flamboyant over the top central performance (is he in every single scene of the movie? Sure seemed like it, almost every single frame with rare exceptions). It’s interesting to contrast Phoenix’s flamboyance with Banderas’s low-key style in Pain & Glory – haven’t seen Marriage Story yet and hoping that Driver will live up to the hype he has been getting lately for his performance. The film doesn’t let us decide how we feel about his character since we aren’t allowed to really get to know anybody else. I am fascinated by how well this movie has done at the box office – clearly it has struck a chord with viewers psychologically!

    Totally possible for Joaquin Phoenix to be the only nomination for Joker. Regardless of the academy’s reception on Joker, his performance is the only constant praise of it.

    If they like the film they might throw a bone and give cinematography, a top 8 BP and editing noms. If they hate it Joaquin is still nominated.

    Anyhow… Joker’s great numbers just consolidate Phoenix as a one-of-a-kind contender. This is actually the first time a CBA is hyped as much for a lead role. Dark Knight and Black Panther were considered in almost every other area, except their lead characters.

    Also, it’s been a while since the villain character gets the prize in Best Actor. It just makes the race more exciting. No hopes up though

    Joker will do well and probably pick up some nods, and a win for Phoenix, but let’s not ever pretend like it’s another Bohemian Rhapsody. BR ended on euphoric note that made people feel very, very sentimental (and nostalgic). Joker just isn’t that.

    You know, when there someone I really want to get the Oscar, they almost never do. Disappointment after disappointment.

    With 3670 precursors, all expectations are either enhanced or obliterated after the Globes. By BAFTA time, everything is decided.

    I really hated the trailer for Ford v Ferrari – it was one of those trailers that did the exact opposite of what is intended: it made me NOT want to see the movie! On the flip side, each time I see the trailer for The Good Liar I can’t wait to see it! While trailers don’t always predict liking a movie or not, they often do, at least for me.

    I had mixed feelings about the 1917 trailer – can’t say it made me want to see it all that much. The Jojo Rabbit trailer did, though. Weirdest trailer: Bombshell – what the heck was that? 3 women on an elevator? Geesh!
