    Yeah, you’re right about that one. In that case, maybe McKensie will be this year’s De Tavira, since they’re both competing in the same category, and McKensie isn’t being widely predicted.

    I’m not 100% sure without checking, but the last film to win BP without an acting nod was Slumdog Millionaire and before that The Return of the King in 2003. It happens but not that often. It’s a travesty to exclude Roman or Thomasin, just because they’re young, so maybe there’s hope.

    It’s interesting because amongst those who have seen the movie (I have not) Roman is the clear standout. But it’s so highly unusual for an actor this young to receive academy recognition. Even if he is as good as people say, the odds are against him. I’m more comfortable predicting Thomasin because the category is ostensibly less clear, she has a decent filmography to date and her profile is rising. People caveat this by saying Scarlett is better in the film, but she’ll be taken care of with MS and I just can’t see her being a double nominee. Thomasin is the natural next choice.

    because her reviews are weaker than Scarjo’s and Disney isn’t gonna spend money on pushing her when they got the #1 box office girl over some newbie, who can’t qualify for any of the critic breakthrough awards either. The academy also isn’t gonna nominate 2 teeny boppers for their first noms at the same time. Pugh will take the slot for that age group if nominated.

    From what I’ve seen, McKenzie’s reviews are at least as good as Scarlett’s. I think I ultimately preferred her. At the very least her accent was better.

    It still pisses me off that Sean Astin didn’t get any major nominations for Return of the King. I wonder if he was hurt by some voters wanting to nominate McKellen again after he got snubbed of a win.

    That’s objectively not true. McKensie has been getting way more praise. Scarlett’s buzz is very mixed right now. I’ve heard several people say her performance is straight up bad.

    He had moments in all three, where he was so damned good. But even Ian was ignored in the final 2 and I suspect the genre bias may have been a factor. To date Reurn of the King is the only pure fantasy to win BP.

    It is rare for an actor so young to be nominated, but it’s also rare to have a Best Picture frontrunner with such a young lead actor. In the past, serious BP contenders with young leads have had their young leads nominated.

    Thanks, I’m aware, but do you have recent examples? Again, I haven’t yet seen the movie but the reviews Roman is getting seem stronger than some others we consider BA leaders. It’d be nice if performance meant everything, but we know it doesn’t.

    I personally think at the very least, Ian should’ve won for Fellowship, Andy Serkis should’ve been nominated for Two Towers, and Sean should’ve been nominated for Return of the King. They were wonderful in all the movies, but those are the ones where I think they gave their best performances, along with being the best performances in general in each of those films. Serkis probably wasn’t close to getting a nomination though. Even to this day, many people believe motion capture performances aren’t worthy, and I’m sure that attitude was much more prevalent around that time. Oh well, at least he won the Saturn Award (McKellen and Astin won also won for the first and third installment respectively). I’d say Sean should’ve won for the final film, but I’ve yet to see Tim Robbins in Mystic River, so I’ll hold off on saying so. It’s a shame that Astin hasn’t had any high profile roles for the past few years outside of Stranger Things. He’s a wonderful actor. Unfortunately, Hollywood isn’t too interested in casting a doughy guy who’s most famous for playing a hobbit and a goonie.

    Since Sean is Patty Dukes son, he’ll be ok . My own feeling is that he had moments in all three. The conscience of that trilogy.
    Chasing after Frodo in the water.
    His emotional soliloquy in Towers.
    And his solid presence and heroism in the third.
    I was choked when they ignored him as well despite knowing the odds were a million to one.

    Thanks Teri. I have to say, I’d written this movie off because it’s not my taste, but Greg likes it and he’s one of the users here who I tend to agree with. So I’ll wait and see, but I do think no matter how amazing Roman is, he will not be nominated. There’s such a prejudice against young performers and studios know this, so don’t campaign them, except in such rare circumstances.

    It’s bigotry against deserving youth that’s not aligned with my …er…values. Just because they’re young. How ageist us that?

    Just came back from this and it was great. Very entertaining and fun. Taika Waititi was unbearable but it was easy to put aside. Loved the visuals and Roman is ADORABLE. I want him to win the Globe.

    Didn’t like this film much at all. The satire didn’t land well, and the tone was excessively twee and weird. Bad German accents. The kids weren’t good. Scarlett was miscast, which is painful to say given her brilliant turn in “Marriage Story.” I was hoping for longshot double Oscar nods this year to make up for all of her past, unfortunate snubs. I don’t know what to make of Sam Rockwell here or the bizarre acting choices he was making. I did like Thomasin McKenzie, so silver linings, I guess. She should have been nominated for “Leave No Trace.” Huge talent, so I think her time is coming soon enough. This could all fall on Taika Waititi’s feet for his amateurish directorial choices, but then he gave himself a prime acting showcase as “Adolf.” I couldn’t take my eyes off of him in all of his scenes. I certainly felt some Christoph Waltz teas (the first one, NOT the second). Supporting actor would be an easy place to reward the film if the Academy really is taken with it. Besides maybe Waititi, I wouldn’t give this dreadful film much of any other Oscar nominations.

    Same. He’s likely losing to Eddie but at least he’ll be noticed.
    I think he’s just as good or better than the other prospects in probably supporting.
    Delusional of me I guess.
