    Comedy Oscar wins rarely justify themselves when the rival nominees in the category are dramatic. And we’re conditioned to value and take seriously someone making us sad or upset over someone making us grin, smile, and laugh.

    To me, that makes comedy being rewarded so special. A great example is Kevin Kline winning for A Fish Called Wanda. That is a straight comedy performance. There’s no other way to interpret it. And yet, despite giving a performance that the Oscars usually don’t go for, in a movie that the Oscars usually don’t go for, he won, simply because he was just so freaking funny.

    Do you think it was category fraud to have him in supporting or is Wanda a movie argumentatively for award bodies works as an ensemble where everybody is supporting?

    My choice at this point is Margot Robbie. For me she is MVP in OUaTiH.

    Now that’s a film fantasy I can sign up for.

    I think Robbie is more likely to be nominated for Bombshell over Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. I’ll be interested if she ends up splitting the vote though, because some people are going as far to say she is the heart and soul of OUaTiH and deserves a nomination, and others say she does nothing. Bombshell seems baitier for her but not likely a BP contender like OUaTiH.

    I call fraud. A Fish Called Wanda is a three-lead film.

    I got to rewatch Wanda, see how Kline’s role measures up compared to John Cleese and Jamie Lee Curtis’. I recall that Kline was nominated in lead at Bafta, where he lost to Cleese. A win that is almost certainly because Cleese is a beloved national treasure, since everyone seems to agree that Kline is the best performance in the film. Michael Palin also ended up winning in supporting at Bafta that year as well.

    Oh, I haven’t watched her. I’m surprised you’ve put Colman so low.

    Yeah. First of all, Colman’s a lead. Second of all, she was the best performance of that year, by far.

    Fuck you. Alan Rickman was an absolutely exceptional actor. He may not have appeared in too many Oscar friendly movies, but that doesn’t mean his incredible work wasn’t worthy. I personally would’ve voted for his performances in Die Hard and Deathly Hallows Part 2.

    Fuck myself for what? Including Alan Rickman in this conversation utterly irrelevant.

    Darling, I don’t know you but thank you. Robbie’s electric performance in that sh*tty movie should be rewarded.

    I was your Prime Minister once.

    With regards Bombshell, Margot may have competition from her co-star Nicole Kidman in the supporting category

    Jennifer’s Booty will never go near an oscar nod, not before the better Jennifers (Aniston and Garner) who have clearly given way better work than this milf.

    She absolutely embodied the sweet and kind-natured Sharon without effort.
    I’m not a violent person, but yes fire blast those pricks straight into a pool.
