    All 4 of them voting for Regina, woo

     

    but these few ballots out of thousands do not mean much

    If black panther was a white cast then it wouldn’t have got this far. It should be nominated for craftsmanship and being a good film rather than awareness. They tried this last year with get out and it failed.

    If Black Panther had a white cast, it would not have been set in Africa and a huge part of the characters’ motivations and social context of Wakanda’s current state v. its neighbors and how the African diaspora is living in Oakland and other areas would not have been in the movie, thus making it a totally different movie.

    Anyway, I’m loving how Black Panther’s in the top 5 in majority of these anonymous ballots.

    Roma deserves Best Picture for the beach scene alone.

    And if CASABLANCA took place in 1890s North Dakota rather than war-time North Africa, it probably wouldn’t have won Best Picture either.

    just watched Tom Jones on The Criterion Channel…

    if that can win Best Picture, The Favourite should be winning easily. granted they are very different films, but that’s a period piece that had a lot going on in it, suggestions of rape, multiple suitors, animal violence, crazy over the top typical period characters. it may have been inventive at the time, but not really anymore.

    I’m just hoping that Roma won’t be put too far down on a lot of ballots to make it lose. It definitely would be a worthy winner and break some records too. It will get backlash for being too boring but I think in the long run people will be glad it won.

    Can Glenn lose again for the 7th time? Will she ever win if she does?

    Hot tea getting spilt ova here

    But what I really came in here to say is that the Oscar Math guy still has Klansman in 2nd despite all that has happened during the season. I found that interesting that is the alt to Roma now instead of something like Green Book or Favourite.

    THR published this piece by controversial and outspoken feminist Camille Paglia who some accuse of being a regressive conservative and others think she’s just contrary says the Cooper-Gaga version of A Star is Born is the most misogynistic version:

    https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/camille-paglia-sexism-star-is-born-films-guest-column-1186741

    The fourth version of A Star Is Born, directed by Bradley Cooper and starring himself and Lady Gaga, has been nominated for eight Oscars at this year’s Academy Awards. How does this movie treat our red-hot theme of women’s aspirations and achievement? Surprisingly, despite its progressive gestures toward masculine sensitivity and transgender inclusiveness, this A Star Is Born is the most sexist film of the entire series.

    In Cooper’s film, the epic Hollywood story has been hijacked by camera-hogging male vanity, curtailing the magnificent classic role of the ascending woman star who painfully eclipses her self-destructive, alcoholic husband. What the script has stingily left to Gaga to play is not leading lady material. Her performance has never belonged in the best actress category because Cooper demoted her to supporting actress from the start.

    Particularly outrageous amid the overpraise of Cooper’s film has been denigration of the previous, 1976 version, with Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson, from whose performance Cooper heavily borrowed. Except, that is, for Kristofferson’s robust sexy allure: With his greasy hair, hobo beard and chronic slump, Cooper scarcely manages more than two facial expressions (dull and duller) throughout.

    What do you guys think? I don’t agree with Paglia often, but I think she brings up some interesting points.
