    This film is so boring…I can’t believe the globes chose it over Vice or The Favourite.

    Because those movies are more boring

    Big fan of Better Call Saul, Sex Education, Barry, BoJack Horseman, and, especially, Survivor

    A voice of reason amidst all the SJW backlash

    I think Green Book will get 5 Oscar nominations and 1 Oscar (for Best Supporting Actor). The 6 or more rule has only been broken once, by The Departed (2006), which only got 5 Oscar nominations.

    I think it’s a solid entertaining movie – not great, not terrible, well designed, well directed, well acted, competent. It wouldn’t be a terrible choice, just not the right choice!

    Feinberg shamed the TF girls for not attending his Critics’ Choice show because of the group’s and his own self-importance. He is far from being the voice of reason on anything.

    “No user starts this shady” - someone culturally relevant.

    Also got banned because...reasons? So, I guess ciao.

    I agree, I think it’s a decent film, and it has been mostly unjustly maligned. I’m rooting for Roma through and through, but there’s a part of me that wishes that Green Book wins Best Picture because I’m tired of hearing about all the controversy. Winning Best Picture would be an “in your face” to all the haters.

    Which is a stupid and childish sentiment to want a film to win BP to spite all of the big bad internet “haterz”!!! You have no place to dictate how people are supposed to feel about a film centered around race relations made by a bunch of racists. It’s not going to be ignored, Mr. Feinberg, no matter how much you spin it, and you also can be certain that winning BP will stir a backlash that will surpass “Crash” pre-social media. This is where we are in 2019 with the King holiday TOMORROW! Thank u, next.

    This. I get a real ass-kisser vibe from Feinberg, who was also one of the only awards journalists online vehemently defending the Popular Film Oscar. He seems to side with whatever tide is most popular with those in charge, and sensing “Green Book” could be a real frontrunner here, he downplays the very real issues with this film with what is basically “It’s winning, get over it.” Some group of people was going to be angry regardless of which film won PGA, it just so happened that the group that dislikes “Green Book” is second to “Bohemian Rhapsody” in terms of size. But when he’s got industry connections to maintain, he’ll pull the “Can’t we all just accept this and be happy?” card…his true colors are showing.

    He’s basically a representation of how needy that organization is to try to be accepted by the industry. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was amongst the people who decided those ties were the greatest idea in the whole world.

    Good movie packed with 2 powerhouse performances.It certainly didn’t deserve to win over movies like ASIB,BlacKkKlansman,Roma and The Favourite however.

    I supported Green Book right from the start since I watched it. I’m glad I stick to my heart. I cannot complain further.

    Personally, I’m not surprised by any of Green Book‘s wins. In fact, I put all three of them in my predictions in the end.

    Ali was a lock, end of story.

    As for the Picture and Original Screenplay wins, the fact that even after the Farrelly and Vallelonga scandals Green Book (1) was still nominated at the Oscars in those categories; and (2) still won Best Picture at PGA, indicates that the film was so popular with older voters that no scandal would completely stop its momentum.

    Personally, I believe Roma could’ve beaten Green Book for Best Picture, and The Favourite could’ve beaten Green Book for Best Original Screenplay. However, in my opinion both films had factors against them in those categories in addition to Green Book‘s popularity with older voters. For Roma, I believe what sealed its fate was the reluctance of some voters to vote for a foreign language film. For The Favourite, I believe what sealed its fate was the reluctance of some voters to vote for a screenplay that didn’t conform with the WGA’s Minimum Basic Agreement standards, plus the splitting of votes with Roma and Vice, who in my opinion were serious competition for the runner up spot.

    That’s…quite the theory.
