    I finally saw Room the other night, and it was phenomenal. I never expected to be moved so much by that movie. I really went in thinking it was just an Oscar-baity boring movie, but I was wrong. The mother/son relationship between ‘Ma’ and Jack was heart-wrenching, and Jack finally seeing the real world after only knowing ‘Room’ was interesting. 

    Brie Larson as Joy ‘Ma’ Newsome was beyond amazing. I never thought a young Disney actress would grow up to be this acclaimed actress itching her way to the Oscars.

    But the best part of Room is ‘Jack’ played by Jacob Tremblay. He felt like a pro thoughout the entire showing. His emotions, gestures, etc. were everything.

    Which brings me to the point of this post: I am deeply dumbfounded by the fact that this award season is based around the comeback of Stallone and the overdueness of DiCaprio, when it should be really based around the debut/breakthrough performance of Tremblay. I read that he was pushed for Supporting Actor (wth, he was the #1 lead in my opinion, and I felt as though Brie was more of the co-lead). The fact that he was pushed for the “smaller” category but still missed out is weird.

    I really don’t understand why he missed the boat when he gave such a perfect debut performance. Is it because of his age? Just a few years ago, Quvenzhané Wallis received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for an outstanding performance in Beast of the Southern Wild. Jacob Tremblay should have definitely been a frontrunner for Best Actor (he was better than Leo, sorry). I really hope this kid has great things in his future.

    His papa is so hot.

    Female actors -young or old- always get nominated more easily in lead categories than males because of the lack of movies that takes women at their center in Holywood.

    What kills me is that the media outside of his home country keeps mispronouncing his name…..

    Also very disappointed for Abraham Attah…..

    One of the most disappointing snubs of the year for me. I know A24 was all aboard the Brie Larson train, but they really should have been more vigorous with his campaign.

    Congratulations on having an opinion. Others have different ones, and the Oscar voters have a variety of them. I don’t think he was better than Leo, and I really liked the performances of all the lead nominees. If anything, Damon might have been replaced by him, but I also liked his performance. He’ll be back, I’m sure.

    Why so mad, though? No one said that my opinion was fact. No one said you had to agree with it. I also don’t think I need to say “it is my belief that he’s better than Leo.” You don’t have to congratulate me on me having an opinion. I never needed approval. Thanks for your response, though.

    For sure. I think Tremblay in “Room” is pretty much the performance of the year. On a related note, Joan Allen wuz robbed too.

    I cannot believe I failed to mention her. I was just thinking that she would have been an excellent nominee for Supporting Actress, but you have a couple of category frauds there. Unfortunate.

    You beat me. I was going to make a post saying the same thing. It baffles me that Matt Damon who gave a good performance in The Martian but it was so one-note I can’t believe he was nominated for anything it; is nominated instead of Steve Carell or Jacob Tremblay. The film was entirely from his point of view so if he was nominated he would have belonged in lead but I doubt the academy would nominate a little boy in lead just like how Abigail Breslin was supporting for Little Miss Sunshine when the film was all about her character. I don’t see the fuss over Joan Allen however. But Jacob was robbed. I think it has to do with the fact that the academy only gives actors the award if there is urgency behind it. Last year they felt an urgency to give the Oscar to Julianne Moore because she was nominated several times and was in a ton of movies whereas with Jacob Tremblay it is his first movie they clearly think he will be more deserving the more movies he does.

    This entire season has been a disappointment for me. Poor, Attah.

    Tremblay’s campaign was a fraudulent supporting one, so I’m glad that A24 weren’t very ‘vigorous’ with it.

    Idk a 9 year old being nominated for an Oscar might not have been the best thing for his young age. Let him grow into his britches first

    I don’t buy that “the wrong category campaign took his chances” type of argument, though. I mean the same thing clearly did work out for Rooney Mara and Alicia Vikander. Supporting Actor was a mess, there were basically no safe choices for the nomination, he could have easily make the cut.

    But we are talking about a little boy, not a little girl, so he didn’t have a pray…
