    The best thing about Marriage Story is Adam Driver and as amazing as he is sadly JP will block him. I have never liked Adam partly because of his looks (i am sorry i am superficial) and partly because he starred in a show called Girls with an annoying piece of turd. But his performance in MS has made me appreciate his talent. He is definitely a future winner if not this year.

    Partly, the reason why I’m rooting for Adam is for this exact reason. He’s not your typical actor, came from the US marines, doesn’t have stereotypically good looks, doesn’t have a big personality, just possesses pure talent and drive.

    Rarely do we get an actor so uninhibited by toxic masculinity or the black hole of social media or public expectation. I’d like to see an old-school actor celebrated in a sea of fame-hungry b list actors, expressionless hunks and showy method actors (im not dragging them but most of the oscars go to those roles ).

    I agree. The allegations could come back to haunt him, espeically if more people speak out. Plus, his performance is much more subdued than a lot of the other contenders in this category.

    What allegations?

    What allegations?

    https://www.nbcnews.com/pop-culture/celebrity/robert-de-niro-accused-unwanted-physical-contact-verbal-abuse-ex-n1061921

    An old assistant of his accused him of such crimes as him asking her to “scratch his back, button his shirts, fix his collars, tie his ties and wake him up.” Also some vulgar, gender based comments towards her.

    This same assistant was also sued for embezzling over $100,000 of company money for personal travel, and also of binging 55 episodes of Friends while on the clock.

    Interestingly, these allegations also came out a few days after DeNiro said “**** Trump” on CNN.

    Darlings, stop it. Right now. You’re going to have meltdowns when you see Joke’s sweep and Nose wins 0 TV awards. You’re not ready for it. Please current Prime Minister EsOS provide medicines to these poor sick people. I’m tremendously sad about all of you, dear citizens. Your stanning delusion has surpassed the limits.

    As a famous singer said, "ain't nobody gonna Thatcher, Thatcher, Thatcher!"

    Dafoe was the filler slot last year, not Mortensen.

    Unfortunately this is technically true, despite him being the best in his category (in my opinion).

But his performance in MS has made me appreciate his talent. He is definitely a future winner if not this year.

    Funny, that you said the bolded part because it really is subjective. I know that Adam isn’t stereotypically good-looking and when I only saw a few pics of him and hadn’t fallen for him as an actor I didn’t think much of his looks, but now I find him utterly beautiful and gorgeous. I’d take him over most of Hollywood’s supposedly beautiful men any day.

    I also don’t think it’s even remotely a given that he’s going to lose to Joaquin Phoenix. Adam has as much going for him in MS and its chances as does Phoenix. I think it’s going to be a tight race between the two. Until we see what happens with the precursors we don’t know.

    Adam is a brilliant actor who has given brilliant performance after brilliant performance, working with some of the finest directors working over the last thirty years. And in this film, he’s said to have given his finest performance yet. Plus, he has several show-stopping scenes and it will be available on Netflix for any and every voter in every branch to watch.

    In addition to that, he will have had three other films come out this year showing his incredible range. One, an indie comedy (The Dead Don’t Die), one a drama that was also considered an Oscar contender when released at film festivals (The Report), oh, and a film that will be everywhere and is part of one of the biggest franchises in the history of cinema (The Rise of Skywalker).

    All of the above, PLUS, MS takes place in the entertainment industry. He plays a director. The industry loves rewarding its own. Also its about divorce and so many in that industry can relate to divorce.

    Bottom-line, Joaquin Phoenix is *not* definitively sadly going to block him. At this point, it’s still very much a two-person race.

    Bale and Damon were already doubtful and now they are splitting votes.

    Why is Adam Driver being “ugly” brought up all of the time? In my opinion he’s not ugly lmfao. Regardless, I don’t see how that adds anything to these conversations? Imagine if someone had said that about a woman. The double standards are real.

    How much will Eddie’s behavior when he lost for “Dreamgirls” hurt him this year?

    Vinny, you are so right about the double standard
