    Suicide Squad won Makeup and we all know it wasn’t a BP nominee lol, Bombshell will be fine.

    That was in a year with no Picture nominees though. And it was easily the most popular film in that category. Unlike Bombshell and it’s fellow nominees, it actually made quite a bit of money.

    For Your Consideration

    Best Picture: Parasite
    Best Director: Bong-Joon Ho,
    Best Actor: Joaquin Phoenix
    Best Actress: Scarlett Johansson
    Supporting Actor: Al Pacino
    Supporting Actress: Florence Pugh
    Adapted Screenplay: Jojo Rabbit
    Original Screenplay: Parasite

    Bombshell fits the previous winners more though. The transformative makeup is what pushed Charlize’s narrative for a nomination, I doubt people will overlook it for a single character wearing clown makeup and green hair lmfao

    And how would that not be overshadowed by everything about Joker? When there’s a Best Picture nominee in the makeup lineup, it usually wins.

    Sure, but who actually cares about Bombshell? Even if you like its makeup better than Joker’s, I can guarantee you people are going to remember the look they made for Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker, having the daunting task of making a design completely unique from the other iterations of the Joker, before they remember anything in Bombshell, in which similar stuff has been done time and time again. Sometimes, less is more.

    Exactly. Joker’s makeup and suit were instantly iconic twists on an iconic character. It’s not about the technicality of the work, it’s about the impact.

    Which, incidentally, is exactly why Joker is taking score.

    Yeah, when this subforum become a Beat Makeup predictions thread and not Best Score? Let’s get back to that.

    Speaking of which, am I the only one who honestly hated Marriage Story’s score. It was barely present in the film at all, except for a few scenes, and even when it was I felt like it was actively taking away form the emotion of the film with it’s syrupy sweetness. It’s like Randy Newman just made this score for Toy Stiry 4, and then decided to put actual effort into the score for Tiy Stiry 4 and recycled this one for Marriage Story. That nomination is the Bohemian Rhapsody in Best Editng of this year’s Oscar’s, in that the worst score of the year got nominated, just like the worst editing of last year. But at least it won’t win.

    I don’t get the love for Marriage Story’s score at all. It reminded me of an ice cream truck tune lol

    No you’re not, I also found it twee and out of place with the movie. The best thing that can be said about the score is that it’s sparingly used and relatively quiet, stopping short of outright emotional manipulation. But I don’t understand the choice of composer for this otherwise excellent film. With that forgettable song from Toy Story 4 also being nominated, Randy Newman has gotten himself namechecked for two nominations this year, above worthier shortlisted contenders. What happened to the music branch’s love for Alberto Iglesias? Pain and Glory was right there, and 10 times more deserving.

    I had no idea Joaquin’s natural hair color was green.

    His hair was just dyed green. You call that hairstyling?

    I agree. I don’t understand its nomination. The film barely has music at all and when it is it isn’t really a factor. I think it’s just there because of the name of the composer. Had it been composed by anyone else I really doubt it would have gotten a spot.

    Anyway I think this is Joker’s to lose simply because after 11 nominations Joker is not winning just best actor and nothing else and has to win something else, and this category is its best chance.

    The case for 1917 winning is simple: if it sweeps it wins this category too.

    And I still think a 1917 sweep is not as likely as some others do. It’s a lock for Director (unless DGA gives it to Parasite) and Cinematography, but nothing else. FvF could take both sound awards along with editing, Irishman could win Visual Effects, Once will win Production Design, and Parasite can still win Picture. 1917 could end up with the most awards of the night, for sure, but it could also end up with just 2. Nothing’s certain yet.

    Imagine thinking 1917 is only going to win 2 awards lol. The irony of talking about stats all the time and not looking at the correlation between best director winners and number of oscars won.

    Roma – won BD – Won 3 Oscars
    The Shape of Water – Won BD – Won 4 Oscars
    Revenant – Won BD – Won 3 Oscars
    BirdMan – Won BD – Won 4 Oscars
    La La Land – Won BD – Won 6 Oscars
    Gravity – Won BD – Won 7 Oscars
    Life of Pi – Won BD – Won 4 Oscars
    The Artist – Won BD – Won 5 Oscars
    The Kings Speech – Won BD – Won 4 Oscats
    Hurt Locker – Won BD – Won 6 Oscars

    So the BD winner has never won only 2 oscars in the past 10 years. Probably more. Too lazy to look further.

    Where are you getting that? I never said it would only win 2 awards, just that it was only a lock for 2 awards. I think it will win at least a couple others (probably Sound Editing and Visual Effects, maybe Sound Mixing if FvF doesn’t win EdOscar’s. But it’s not winning as many as you and others think it will. The real irony is that you criticize me for overusing statistics and then counter my argument that 1917 isn’t winning 8 Oscars with a bunch of statistics.
