    What role exactly do the critics play in the awards race, especially in such a peculiar year such as this where all the upcoming televised awards will more than likely be virtual? If this movie is set to be released on Netflix in a week or two, I would think that the voting bodies have already received their screeners weeks or months ago, and will have already made up their minds about whether or not to vote for any of the castmembers.

    Critics lost all power after that green book win. The reasons why they are attacking the movie(that it is middle of the road) is the same reason why it can still be a success at oscars.

    Comparisons between Green Book and this movie don’t make sense though, since Green Book wasn’t in any way panned by critics (it had a 79% on Rotten Tomatoes): it was just highly divisive and a love-it-or-hate-it type of film. Same goes for Bosemian Rhapsody, Vice, and Joker. The only recent example of a panned Best Picture nominee is Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, which was still better received than Hillbilly Elegy.

    This movie is lower than Batman Vs Superman on RT and MC. Poor Amy.

    What the hell is this “Critics hated Green Book” revisionism? 77% certified fresh and 69 MC score is NOT a critical flop, it is the very definition of “generally favourable” to “very positive” reviews. Stop with this nonsense.

    Best Director - Lee Isaac Chung (Minari), Darius Marder (Sound of Metal)

    Lead Actor - Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods), Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round), Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal)

    This is wrong. It’s not even an opinion, it’s straight up wrong.

    I hope the Oscars don’t nominate Glenn. Leave her alone please since she’s not winning. She doesn’t need to keep increasing her record.

    Find another filler somewhere else.

    I could see a scenario in which she still gets nominated, veterans are sometimes able to sneak into supporting categories in shitty movies in weak years (Robert Duvall in The Judge, Max Von Sydow in Extremely Loud… etc.) but even then she’d only get in bc this year is especially weak.

    The Judge was a fantastic film!

    No, it was a shitty film, and speaking of Duvall, Josh Brolin of Inherent Vice should’ve been the one to take his place. Surrounded by a stacked cast, he stole the show.

    So, these reviews and critic scores are definitely suspicious. It’s a shame they can’t separate the film from the author of the book.

    I saw this tonight and thought it was a pretty solid film. My biggest critique would be that the ending could have been stronger. Glenn Close and Amy Adams are EXCELLENT, and personally I think Amy steals the film and leaves more of a lasting impression. Both should easily be nominated, but we will see if the skewed critic scores are enough to sink them. I hope Amy takes on more unhinged type roles because I think she’s great playing crazy. Glenn escapes so far into character that I didn’t even think I was watching Glenn Close; she was MeMaw! Also, shoutout to Haley Bennet who was great in this. Her and Jennifer Lawrence should play sisters in a movie, just saying.

    Definitely watching it on the 24th. I mean, one has to go all the way through.

    I remember the fits people had when Kidman came close to a nom for Paperboy and that had a superior 45 Metascore.
