    Voting is finally done! Time for the secret Oscar Ballots! Not sure how many we’ll get before Sunday night (a casualty of the truncated Oscar season), but anyways.

    Here’s the first one: a female from the acting branch, and she’s absolutely awful lol.

    That was disgusting and disturbing to read. “Little Women is badly acted” – um, what?! And ugh about OUATIH. I really don’t get it.

    I never know what to make of these secret ballots anyway. But they did foreshadow the Colman upset last year

    And yeah, that so-called actress needs to shut the fuck up with her xenophobic statements. Girl SIT. Her ass was probably fuming when the Mexican legends kept stomping on her precious American directors over and over last decade

    The predicted winner isn’t even American 💀

    That’s why we get bad wins. This woman made me roll my eyes so much. She really is awful and disgusting.

    Btw, this xenophobic mess really had a big problem with Little Women and Harriet but had none with Once where Margot, an Australian played Tate, an American? This bitch is so fake.

    Damien Chazelle is the only American director to win in the 2010’s and he’s also half French. I know this bitch is pressed

    She’s sounds like some 70-80 year old hag. The messiness was obvious lol.

    “I was irritated by Florence Pugh [Little Women]; she is so much older than her character is supposed to be that it was laughable. “You’re, like, 30 years old [Pugh is actually 24], why aren’t you a grown-up?””

    She will vote for Scarlett and Klaus. She likes Joker and Pain and Glory. I’m contented.

    While she made many vulgar points, some stemming on pure laziness, I have to agree with her about Little Women. It’s just not that good. I didn’t have a problem with the actors not being American. I had a problem with the way they played their roles. They rushed through their lines, and the direction was sloppy and erratic. Only Ronan had any heart. I heard SO MUCH hype for this movie, and I’ve seen the other three films.

    Florence Pugh did not deserve a nomination. If anything, Jennifer Lopez should have taken HER spot- not Kathy Bates (who was superb in Richard Jewell). The voter is right- they should have had someone younger play Amy, like Kirsten Dunst did so mischievously in the superior 1994 movie. Pugh is so wooden. So mannish almost. I think many people saying they loved her have a thing for the actress, and were blinded with their bias for the actor, and couldn’t see how dense the acting was. This happened with Jennifer Lawrence a lot when she was the “thing”. It’s the same when I ask the Little Women fans why it should win costumes. “Oh, because it’s a way to reward the film.” Same tired reasoning for designs that were not original at all. Jojo Rabbit or Once Upon a Time in Hollywood deserve it, or hell even The Irishman. Joker‘s nomination in Costumes is just that- a joke.

    I read a lot of Twitter blogging just for entertainment. It’s clear many on there are under the age of 25. If only they could have witnessed Winona Ryder, Christina Bale, Dunst, Susan Sarandon, Claire Danes (!) in the 1994 Little Women that to this day has one of Thomas Newman’s best scores and earned Ryder a best actress nomination.

    This is absolutely vile. Taking issue with British people playing Americans? Taking issue with foreign films being nominated in ‘American’ categories? Wanting an American director to win rather than who did the best?

    This kind of shit is why we get undeserving nominations and wins. Horrendous, small minded, xenophobic bull. Did they purposely try and find someone they thought would be this terrible?

    The thing is that everyone thinks Dern isn’t deserving so why the heck they keep voting for her?

    I think the media selects off the wall ballots from voters to “shake things up” that aren’t really shaken. We all know Laura Dern will win, so find a voter that’s picking someone else. Notice she isn’t even picking Sam Mendes for director.

    “Laura Dern was annoyingly over-the-top. If I was her client in a divorce case, I would have walked out five minutes into her rant and hired Ray Liotta.” 😭

    Her xenophobia is ATROCIOUS, but I like her Klaus, Pain and Glory, and Ford v Ferrari picks.
