    Eh, Chalamet and Hammer didn’t exude that much romantic chemistry on-screen for it to even be that “creepy” or “squirmy”.  Hammer was too self-conscious in his Oliver persona to be able to portray Oliver (he focused way too hard on sounding like a snobby, cocky grad student than actually portraying one); I could see the gears working for the great majority of his surprisingly limited time on screen (though he does much better when he’s not required to speak).  Chalamet and the directing/camerawork do all the heavy work here, in particular the framing of shots and the multitude of Chalamet close-ups portraying his longing/desire for Oliver.

    A similar phenomenon occurs in The Constant Gardener; Weisz is technically in it for about a half hour to forty minutes, but because she is the crux of the story and its catalyst, and, frankly, because her performance is just phenomenal, she sticks around much longer in our memories and becomes a “lead”.  Sadly, Oliver sticks around mostly because he’s the object of desire for a character that’s more fleshed-out, and, despite my own reservations, better-performed.

    I don’t know why people get their undies in a jam over this absurdity.  The movie’s not even that steamy or provocative.  Haha!  Good grief…

    When some of those anonymous voters try to say how they don’t understand why Kaluuya is up there among nominees or things like that I deeply sigh. Cause really out of all nominees he is the most non traditional, most original and fresh nominee.

    Looking at these ballots made me wonder how Phantom Thread got so many nominations. I mean its barely mentioned in anyway.

    “I purposely voted for “Shape of Water” and “Get Out” at the bottom.”

    Oh no, didn’t GD say voters vote honestly instead of trying to sabotage certain movies.

    Maybe the other 6,995 members of the Academy really liked it. 🙂

    I do enjoy reading these voters thoughts on why they voted, but we aren’t hearing from the far majority so I take these, albeit enjoyable to read, with a grain of salt.

    You may be talking about comments I made on this topic. I never said voters wouldn’t try to vote tactically. Just that by trying to vote tactically they would be unsuccessful 100% of the time.

    If that voter thinks they somehow hurt Shape of Water or Get Out they are wrong. If he moved them below films he liked less than them he voted inefficiently. If he he liked them least that’s not tactical it’s voting in order of preference.

    Those “anonymous voters” sound less believable than the stories of that Sasha guy.

    Is the commentary in these written directly by the voter, or is it transcribed from an interview? Either way, this “writer” comes across as having very jumbled and/or simplistic thoughts and much of the text is mis-punctuated.

    If he wanted TSOW and Get Out to fail, he’s dumb for putting Darkest Hour at the top since it has 0 chance.
