    James Franco in The Disaster Artist. He did look exactly like Tommy Wiseau, but in some scenes, his expressions were just pale as compared to Wiseau in The Room.

    I saw a test screening cut of Disaster Artist (one where Dave Franco was more of the lead) and there were a few flat moments from James. I’m pretty happy with the final cut though.

    People who say “Gary Oldman’s work is overrated” is only because they want Chalamerde to fuck them.

    Overrated performances:

    Sally Hawkins (TSOW) – unconvincing and disgusting

    Frances McDormand (3BOEM) – offensive and nasty

    Sam Rockwell (3BOEM) – bad as hell

    Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out) – he was just okay in an ATROCIOUS movie

    Laurie Metcalf  (Lady Bird) – good acting, not Oscar-worthy at all. Thank God Janney is winning.

    Robert Pattinson (Good Time) – he does nothing impressive, just okay

    Timothée Chalamerde (CMBYN) – correct performance, far from the things gays have been saying about him.

    Armie Hammer (CMBYN) – he did nothing but being beautiful.

    Adam Sandler (The Meyerowitz Stories) – he was just okay and few scenes seemed too forced.

    Kumail Nanjiani (The Big Sick) – he played himself

     

    I was your Prime Minister once.

    My two cents: Steve Carell for “Battle of the Sexes” & Octavia Spencer for “The Shape of Water”.

    They are not bad, but definitely not in my top 5 of the year AT ALL. They have done way better in the past… basically in almost any other film from them.

    Oh, and this:

    Laurie Metcalf (Lady Bird) – good acting, not Oscar-worthy at all. Thank God Janney is winning.

    TOTALLY AGREE!!  CMBYN IS SO OVERRATED – WILL NEVER GET OVER THE PRAISE AND ACCOLADES.  AND 100% YOU ARE RIGHT WITH HARRIS DICKINSON IN BEACH RATS – ONE OF THE BEST OF THE LAST 5 YRS AND BLOWS AWAY TIMOTHEE IN CMBYN.  I WISH HE GOT THE PRAISE HE REALLY DESERVED!

    Frances McDormand and Sam Rockwell in the atrocious Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri, and Daniel Kaluuya in the atrocious Get Out.

    Disagree on Rockwell. He’s clearly in a whole different stratosphere from everyone else in the cast of Three Billboards. McDormand gives the kind of charismatic performance the Academy has always had a strong liking for. I agree that Three Billboards as a whole is not as strong however.

    -Mary J. Blige in Mudbound: I don’t think she deserved any nomination for this OK performance in a better than average film (the true standout Garrett Hedlund should have received the buzz).

    -Armie Hammer in Call Me By Your Name: he’s the weak link in the film.

    -Frances McDormand in Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri: The film is a masterpiece and she’s great, but I don’t think she should be the frontrunner, I don’t consider her performance groundbreaking or anything, just great.

    -Allison Janney in I, Tonya: she gives a very good performance but her character is incredibly one-dimensional so her work is very one-note and there’s no depth to it, I don’t think she should be the frontrunner.

    -Kristen Stewart in Personal Shopper (I don’t know if this is considered 2016 or 2017): I really try to see why she’s now being considered a good actress, but I fail to see what she brings to this performance and her other recent performances that isn’t the same emotionless, awkward performance she’s always given.

    -Brooklyn Prince in The Florida Project: This is the same as Quvenzhané Wallis in 2012, a girl playing herself, simply being a child and acting like a child, sure it’s effective, it’s great, the film is great, but I wouldn’t call it a “performance”.

    I already mentioned Robert Pattinson in Good Time awhile back, but I also gotta add in Lesley Manville in Phantom Thread. She was fine, but what on Earth was Oscar worthy about her performance?!
