    Spike has the line of the night:

    “I’m snake bit. Every time somebody is driving somebody, I lose.”

    He should be greateful he was given an Oscar that other people deserved. Lee should grow up, the best film of 1989 was Crimes & Misdemeanors and that wasn’t even nominated and nobody has hear Woody Allen complaining about it ever or Paul Mazursky for the snubbing of Enemies: A Love Story that very same year.

    The Oscar needs to get rid of the preferential ballot so it can name a deserving movie as Best Picture again.

    The Artist was a silent film (except at the very end) that was actual French in origin to some extent, but yes, the English language bias was one of the many hurdles that Roma was facing tonight. It didn’t quite make it across the finish line; instead a film that did not have the usual requisite of 6 nominations and no Best Director nomination (but it did have that pesky PGA win) wound up defeating it in the preferential ballots (it wasn’t even a popular hit movie) – it’s disappointing but oh well…

    Stupid question, but what films have WON Best Picture without an editing nomination?

    What Roma’s Best Picture loss means for Netflix:

    https://www.fastcompany.com/90311208/what-romas-best-picture-loss-means-for-netflix

    Money quotes: “But in the end, the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences may not have been ready to award its top prize to a film from a streaming service, particularly one that is hellbent on destroying the traditional theatrical distribution model. Late in the game, Netflix decided to give Roma a longer theatrical run than it typically gives to awards contenders (three weeks), but that is still far shorter than the traditional 90-day window. (The vast majority of Netflix’s original film releases debut exclusively on its service.) Throughout the Oscar race, the buzz in Hollywood was that “a vote for Roma is a vote for Netflix.”

    “This didn’t stop Netflix, however, from mounting a no-holds-barred campaign that included a barrage of billboards, TV spots, glossy coffee table books, experiential events, and private cocktail parties and screenings in support of Roma. As Fast Company was the first to report, the Roma campaign–which was spearheaded by Oscar consultant and Harvey Weinstein protege Lisa Taback–is estimated to have cost about $25 million, though some observers say even that number is far too low.

    Birdman won without an Editing nomination a few years ago. Don’t know at the top of my head of any others…

    Moonlight: Best Picture, Adapted Screenplay, Mahershala Ali

    Green Book: Best Picture, Original Screenplay, Mahershala Ali.

     

    Ali won two Oscars for two Best Picture winners, so very good on him. He should be doing what he is doing he is very talented and deserves more recognition. Hopefully Emmys are next!

     

    Anyway, between Green Book winning BP, and Bohemian Rhapsody being the most awarded movie the winners were mostly a travesty. However, between Shallow, Colman, Bao, and First Man winning I have enough to keep me sane.

    Wow. Colman is by FAR the biggest shocker of the night. I’m thrilled for her, but I’m still reeling from the fact that Close somehow didn’t win.

    I am amazed that The Godfather part II and esp. Annie Hall failed to get editing nominations; Annie Hall was really made within it’s editing. Thanks for providing the information! Birdman is the only recent win in the category.

    Roma seemed to be very popular with the audience in the theater, i don’t believe that its lost was because of any hurdle that Roma was facing. Ever since Green Book won the GG the industry has been reacting to the smear campaign from the woke mafia against GB, a vote for GB was a vote against the woke mafia and in the end that was enough to put it over the top.

    The Oscar needs to get rid of the preferential ballot so it can name a deserving movie as Best Picture again.

    My takeaways:

    1). Green Book is the worst Best Picture winner since Crash and, arguably, the worst Best Picture winner ever.
    2). I’m over the moon for Olivia Colman, but I feel so sad for Glenn Close. If she couldn’t win this time, she’s probably never winning.
    3). This was one of the best Oscar ceremonies in years. It didn’t drag nearly as usual and having no host really enhanced the show.

    I think Birdman is sort of excused because part of its awards narrative was the fact the film had extremely long takes and it became something to admire. So in recent history, I’d say not having an editing nomination will always hurt a film’s BP chances even if that film is a perceived favorite or slight favorite. We all know Alfonso Cuaron was really looking for that editing nomination, unlike Birdman.

    Totally agree (and we have the same user names lol)

    Crash remains the worst tho

    Green Book was my 3rd favorite film from the nominees, to was #2 on my predictions, but ROMA was robbed, that film was a masterpiece, Im still in shock.

    The Academy hates Glenn??? Or they are waiting for a bigger film??

    Is SUNSET BOULEVARD finally green lighted???
