    It’s about time with makeup. Will we actually have a year where the Academy starts making smart decisions as opposed to stupid ones like this past year?

    Oscar FYC - Lupita Nyong'o & Elisabeth Moss ("Us") - Best Actress & Supporting Actress. It must happen; otherwise the Tethered are coming.

    Good changes! Very happy that Makeup and Hairstyling is expanding to five.

    I also like the new International Feature Film name. It feels much broader and more inclusive than Foreign Language Feature.

    My username is an acronym of “Quiet On Set! Lights, Camera, Action.”

    Nothing changed with the eligibility of films from streaming services.

    Every HBO movie that fulfills the requirements is eligible. American Splendor even was nominated for screenplay and won the WGA in addition to a bunch of critics’ awards.

    Holy crap. When’s the last time they announced a change that wasn’t completely awful, or rolling back something completely awful? Well done.

    About bloody time with the expansion of the Makeup category. I’m just sad they didn’t make the decision last year, 2018 was a fantastic year for makeup.

    I always thought ‘Best Foreign Language Film’ was an unfitting name when there were films not in English that were ineligible due to being US productions, such as Letters from Iwo Jima and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly. ‘Best International Feature Film’ is more accurate in accordance with their current rules, as well as more eloquent.

    I have prayed for YEARS that Best Makeup & Hairstyling would expand to five nominees, and I’m so glad it’s finally going to happen!!

    “International” is too broad. The category is supposed to honor films not in the English language. “International” does not speak to that at all.

    There’s already a category best international film. It’s called Best Picture. It allows films from any country in any language.

    I never saw any HBO film in the theater. I did see Roma in a movie theater.

    Also, the theater availability for many of the Oscar-nominated films these days (i.e.: The Favourite) is just as limited to many consumers as Roma’s limited theater run given they’re often relegated to indie theaters that many people don’t have in their town.
