    Netflix’s private investigators aren’t playing.

    Or the ones from Warner Brothers

    Green Book was never winning best picture anyway and neither was Bohemian Rhapsody. I was so happy that A Star is Born lost at the Globes because I knew it was a guaranteed best picture loser at the Oscars if it had won like what happened last year.

    I agree that the 3 Billboards controversy was a crock of crap. That film was good and not racist. I haven’t seen Green Book but after that Tweet,  I’m going to enjoy its fall even more now. I’m fine with Ali winning and no I don’t hate Viggo after the N-word. His support of Jill Stein annoyed me far more.

    ASIB is not going to win Best Picture. It will get nominated that’s for sure. Green Book is so Oscar material. I have a feeling it will get passion votes than ASIB.

    So Green Book:

    – has its Lead Actor saying the N-word during press tour,
    – has  writer, who was called out for falsely claiming New Jersey Muslims cheered 9/11,
    – has director who used to flash his penis as a joke,
    – has the family members being very critical of how Shirley was portrayed in the movie.

    Mess.

    Well, now I’m off to take Green Book out of my screenplay predictions…

    it’s still going to get it’s nominations and nothing has really changed. Green Book will likely get 5 nominations: BP, Actor, Supporting Actor (it’s sole win), Director and Screenplay. I don’t see it getting any technical nominations. With the exception of The Departed – which got 5 nominations, there has been no BP win in decades that hasn’t received at least 6 nominations (this will also hurt BlacKkKlansman, which will get 4 or 5 nominations). Of course there are exceptions but I don’t see it happening this year.

    Depending on when Academy voters submit their ballots, this film could very well lose nominations due to the many public scandals out there right now. This is huge news, whether you realize it or not. They have to hope that the older contingent doesn’t care or isn’t all that internet-savvy to at least not hurt “Green Book”‘s Oscar hopes at the nominating stage. As for winning actual Oscars, those hopes are seriously compromised to zero now.

    Ugh, this is all in such bad faith. Pull through, Farrelly!

    I absolutely see the older contingent of the Academy (which is the crowd this movie was designed for anyway) either being unaware of the scandals or not giving a shit. So I’m not sure it really misses out on any nominations it was already going to get, except for maybe Farrelly in Director (in a McDonagh/”3BB” kind of way). I do think this hurts its chances at a win in Screenplay, and I think “The Favourite” solidly slides into the frontrunner position. Mortenson, Farrelly and the movie itself were probably never winning Actor, Director or Picture anyway. And I don’t think this scandal hurts Ali at all. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it helps him, but he is honestly at this point the only face of this movie that isn’t associated with scandal (outside of Linda Cardellini, but like…ya know).

    It really is in bad faith. I read that this controversy happened because one or two users from AW took upon themselves to search through Vallalonga’s Twitter page as an attempt to make him look bad, and they found his controversial tweet. To think that they basically did something that they were not even getting paid to do. Pathetic!

    Yes, b/c heaven forbid we protect a racist and xenophope co-writing a film about the relationship between a white man and black man in pre-civil rights South where RACE is a key element? Get the hell outta here with that noise! The fact that Vallelonga deleted those tweets tells me that FAR worse content is in his account that he didn’t want to be held accountable for. This tweet was likely one of the more benign ones he posted. Bringing that to light when the content is ALREADY in the public domain isn’t disingenuous on those users’ parts at all. If they hadn’t done it, someone else would have eventually. It’s just happening now when the film is in the Oscars spotlight with many other controversies to go along with it.

    Islam is not a race, so what makes him a racist? And I doubt there were “far worse” tweets because the tweet in question dates from 2015. Meaning that they scrolled through 3 years’ worth of tweets just to pick that one.

    That’s not how the timeline played out. The initial search was made only in relation to Vallelonga’s Trump tweets @realDonaldTrump. There wasn’t then a combing through all of Vallelonga’s tweets (I think it was 139 in total, or around that number). Before that search could be made, his Twitter account was deleted. So much worse was in there given his following list that we’ll never get to know about unless the content in question is archived.
