    Perhaps it doesn’t help that Dench is in her late 80s and she herself has said she’s been constricted in the types of projects she chooses because of her age but I would really like to see her win a second Oscar in best actress. She gave two of my favourite performances of the century in Notes on a Scandal and Philomena!

    Yeah I get that but… I do feel similarly as with Close last year. It’s the film not her. I just didn’t want Close to win for HE and obviously the elation for her very first would be bigger than already-winner Dench. Notes on a Scandal is stratospheric. I quite liked Philomena—honestly loved her in Best Exotic Marigold Hotel too which is…pretty treacly but at least it’s not pretending to be more. Mrs Henderson Presents, Iris… all of it! Just not this one and in this year with a category so stacked and at least 6-7 performances I think would be ingenious wins (Dunst, Negga, Buckley, Johnson, Plimpton, Miura, Hoffman… can’t even remember them all, but basically the first 3-4).

    Her first win wasn’t great, I think we’ll get a deserving performance very soon, I just don’t think this one is it? And in any case, I don’t think both are getting in. It’s too stacked.

    I know everyone hates this movie like the plague, but the everlasting love scene is just so well-done. Seeing that clip gets me a little bit excited to watch. I will be seeing it this week.

    A little bit of Magic never hurt anybody.

    It’s not. The boring BP movie of the season is The Power of the Dog. Belfast remains the best

    Laga Gaga for Best Actress.

    House of Gucci for best picture.

    Belfast for everything - Best Picture win

    Ugh. Wanted to like this movie but it was such a snoozefest. I didn’t really care for the performances either except for Hinds and Dench.

    So pleased that all 4 adults were nomianted at AACTA, including Dame Judi Dench!!!! So richly deserved! Belfast is a great movie – I know that there are some on here who don’t like it but it is LOVED out there!

    I do wish the Oscars had a Younger Performer category for Jude Hill to be nominated in.

    I really wanted to like this film but come on… the writing is terrible and the directing all over the place.

    The acting on the other hand is great, but Dornan deserves a Razzie nomination for this though.

    I think the kid should be getting more recognition. Every single scene that he is on works perfectly.

    The industry is going to eat up this film.

    BELFAST is a pleasant film overall…and that is about where it ends.

    Aside from Balfe and, to a lesser extent Jude Hill, I don’t see any performances worthy of award nominations.

    I feel like Balfe is the only nomination this film should get and even then, I don’t know if she would make my personal lineup. I would still want to see some contenders before making a definitive claim.

    Let’s just say as a hypothetical that BELFAST actually won Best Picture. Where would I place it on a ranking of every single winner? I’d probably put it somewhere in the 50s around where I rank THE KING’S SPEECH. It’s just not anything overly remarkable and that former film at least had Firth and Rush.

    Oh my God. One of the most unoriginal and boring film I have seen in a while.

    Dench and Hinds don’t have enough screentime for me to even care about their characters/performances.

    Balfe and Dornan have nothing to do. And controversial but I liked Dornan more than Balfe.

    And lmao for a film called Belfast, you’d think it would be interesting to film more than just a SINGLE street. But no, let’s just film other parts of Belfast and put them in a 2 mins intro montage.
