    I’m really excited for the musical tbh. I’ve always wanted to see an older Harley Quinn and Gaga fits the bill. I was shook at one of the edits a fan made yesterday with Gaga as Dr.Harleen Quinn. The resemblance is striking. I hope she keeps the crazy to a minimum during the press tour though. This doesn’t scream Oscar bait to me but let’s see. They’re in a good position for nominations at the least.

    the first one also isn’t oscar bait in the slightest

    Joaquin’s performance was definitely geared to be Oscar bait.

    Was Bing Crosby the only one so far to get two nods for the same role twice for best actor? Where are my film historians? That might change in 2024.

    This doesn’t feel like an Oscar project. It’ll make money and it’ll probably be good, but that’s it.

    I don’t disagree, but I think there are a few things this movie has going for it that will make it appeal more to the Oscars: musical and Gaga. Voters will be looking to Gaga to see if she’s “proven” herself, and I think if she does then she’ll garner a lot of favor.

    Yeah he was first, there’s been 5 more people since actors to be double nominated in the same role since, 3 in the same category.

    Peter O’Toole as King Henry II – “Becket” (1964) and “The Lion in Winter” (1968) (Best Actor)

    Al Pacino as Michael Corolene – “The Godfather” (1972) and “The Godfather Part II” (1974) (Supporting 72, Lead 74)

    Paul Newman as Fast Eddie Felson – “The Hustler” (1961) & “The Color of Money” (1986) (Best Actor, won 86)

    Cate Blanchett as Queen Elizabeth I – “Elizabeth” (1998) & “Elizabeth: The Golden Age” (2007) (Best Actress)

    Slyvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa – “Rocky” (1976) & “Creed” (2015) (Lead 76, Supporting 15)

    Joaquin’s win is an odd case, he’s the first actor in a leading role to win an Oscar for a comic book movie, it’s not baity in the sense the Academy don’t love this genre and almost all the time they just award these movies in technical categories. But with the Joker is a different case, i can see more actors in the future having auditions to play the Joker to win an Oscar, the character is so unhinged and the Academy loves when an actor plays an unhinged person. I don’t know about another cómic book character so unique like the Joker that could make an actor win an Oscar.

    I agree 100%. About great roles: Lex Luthor is really Great in Comic Books but in movies is Meh/Mediocre. More fault of the movies. Lex Luthor could be like Joker IF they were copied/copying more closely the Great Lex Luthor of The Comic Books

    Michael Rosenbaum was a great Lex Luthor in Smallville.

    Exactly. Lex Luthor is like The Evil Version of Batman and a great man of action and a great detective in the Comic Books. In the movies(for some awful reason), he is wimpy

    I can’t believe Jesse Eisenberg turned Lex Luthor into a weird version of the Joker

    I think the anything within the Batman franchise is unique because it’s had decades of building up a reputation as carrying the most highbrow of the superhero movies. He’s basically the American equivalent of James Bond, and Nolan helped solidify the prestige factor with The Dark Knight. So anything attached to Batman gets a way more generous read than anything affiliated with Marvel (although Warner Brothers Discovery seems determined to undo that).

    I think Tim Burton helped to solidify the prestige factor when he cast Jack Nicholson as the Joker, the Dark Knight was the cherry on top.

    Miscast. It’s very weird how in the comic books Lex Luthor always looks like The Rock or Vin Diesel. And in the movies, he always is small
