Olivia Colman got two standing ovations. Check your facts KordMarch 1, 2019 at 5:31 am #1202800046
Oh, Christ! Kord is still amped up over Glenn’s loss. Time to move on. Take your pill, “Jan.” While you’re at it, you can cut the self-loathing, homophobic rhetoric. You should know better.
(And yes, Colman watched the entire room leap to their feet at the end of her speech. Watch it on Youtube. You cannot deny what the cameras caught.)March 4, 2019 at 2:04 am #1202803175
You won’t accept that she was great in the Wife because Olivia played a LGBT character and no offense I know most of y’all here are gays men or something like that. Anyways.
Don’t act like you aren’t a fucking gay man for God’s sake. Supporting Colman’s win has nothing to do with her character being LGBT, she was miles better than Bore Close. Period.March 4, 2019 at 3:19 am #1202803213

I didn’t talk about the academy voters sexual orientation… neither did I talk about their race when it’s pretty obvious that actors like Regina King ( that I love ) and Mahershala Ali would win Oscars just because these voters want to seem opened and no racists… Green Book winning BP is the best illustration of that race stuff climate. I’ve said that ppl here will be happier like it’s the case, to see a lgbt character get rewarded. She’s starring in The Crown yes, but she’s not famous simple as water, btw TC isn’t that much of a hit for that matter… purely awards bait. I repeat, I have no issue with Olivia Colman. She’s a very deserving winner, but I’m sad because Glenn Close lost… this Oscar was Close’s… I’m entitled to my opinion which is They Gave it to Colman because they couldn’t deny TF like that… it almost won 0 awards so to keep their credibility after awarding BR and BP all the night, they awarded a justified Oscar ( not that it was necessary since Close would have been a worthy winner too) to Olivia Colman. you’re are the same ppl thinking that Matthew was better than Leo in TWOWS, just because Matt gave a more dramatic performance and the transformation (which Bale does better btw). Matthew isn’t a better actor than Leo and wasn’t any better than Leo in 2014. Colman did all that in TF but, you have underappreciated TF since forever so it’s obvious no one would recognize the master class act that Close was in this indie. To talk about the standing Ovations stuff … Colman did receive a standing… but had she been acclaimed like a undeniable winner ..NO.. it’s was barely a standing ovation lol.. just rewatch Close’s GG acceptance speech… you will see what a Standing Ovation really is.
You’re upset not really with Olivia but with the Oscar, right?
There is no point of continuing this discussion or argument. Let them be happy for Colman. Let others be happy.
As for Glenn, I wish her well. She’s in her 70s. I hope she enjoys life without Oscar.
Next thread please.March 4, 2019 at 8:41 pm #1202804123

I think you should be more careful when you reffer to any sexuality that isn´t yours, specially when it has NOTHING to do with the topic we are discussing.March 4, 2019 at 9:27 pm #1202804145
A higher power looking down on this thread wondering why Chris didn’t shut it down 10 decades ago:March 5, 2019 at 11:30 am #1202804884
I just want to say “I miss you guys”. We had such a nice time together. I wish the season never came to an end. I love you all
Lady Gaga (A Star is Born) should win best actressMarch 12, 2019 at 8:21 am #1202813682
Lol, imagine if Close with her overdue narrative wasn’t in the running? Would we still have gotten the same result? Gaga would have won the Golden Globe, she did win the Critics Choice and considering SAG is populist would probably win there as well. Oli ofc would still win GG and most definitely BAFTA as well, I mean she won over Close so why not Gaga? She’s also too beloved to lose to her. I think Colman would have still prevailed, given the Academy’s potential snob behavior towards a pop-star and lack of interest in A Star is Born.March 12, 2019 at 10:51 am #1202813853
Close wasn’t in the running because of her overdue narrative. She was in the running because of a great performance. It’s over; stop trashing.March 14, 2019 at 7:05 am #1202816121
This thread is still alive? Omg.March 14, 2019 at 7:22 am #1202816135

Wtf? Learn to read. What I said was Close wouldn’t sweep awards-season if it wasn’t for her overdue narrative.March 14, 2019 at 8:12 am #1202816242
Lol this sentimental Jan is right… GD is a bit boring when the season is over.
So i just thought about something to prove my point of view:
– Dou you think the academy, as many as were the members in the 60’s, all voted for Elizabeth Taylor in BUtterfield 8, I mean it’s the popular vote, do you really think Liz got more voted, or Shirley did, but they (the board) decided the Oscar was Liz’?
– Bette Davis won for Dangerous while her breakout performance was snubbed just a year before ( Of Human Bondage), do you think they actually voted for Dangerous and she won or they just decide to give her the Oscar ?
– As for Gwyneth, they could have promised they would vote for her to Weinstein, but he was not with all the voters when they voted, I could just take his gifts and vote for the person I really want to win. I’m sure they decide the Oscar was hers.
Wake up guys, it’s pretty obvious, the winners are decide when it is convenient for the board of governors. I’m sure at 100% they (the board) already know the results before the show.
Even to enter into college, we have some dirty tricks, to have a job, we have also some dirty tricks, even with politics, I mean I’m not American but we all know Hilary won the popular vote, but small a group of people with power decided she couldn’t be president, not a woman… so they chose the most convenient for them…. It’s the same with the board of governors.
Glenn Close was obviously the one who had won the popular vote, but for some reasons the Academy wasn’t going to let her go home with that Oscar.
I refuse that theory of the other bodies voting more for Colman. These people don’t live under a rock, they were aware of who Glenn Close is and the situation in what she was in. Some people don’t even watch all the nominees and yet you think they watched the Favourite more because of its 10 nods and then voted for Colman because she’s the one they saw the most while everybody on earth at that time knew who Glenn is. Glenn has the best visibility at that time and her narrative was unstoppable.
Also, if the other bodies saw TF the most because of its 10 nods, why didn’t they also chose this movie in the other categories ?
I even believe it’s not the industry that hates Close, but the board themselves as stupid as it is. So they’re the ones always stopping her.
This is all fake You need to wake up about the sincerity of that Jans.
