    Y’all know Judy only serve one purpose like The Wife did, right?

    To fail at giving an actress an Oscar?

    Netflix massive campaign for Roma got talked about a lot in here. They really did A LOT

    Politics, money and lobbying are nothing new in Hollywood and their awards have never been based on “merit” (as subjective as it is). It has always been about asskissing, smearing and intense campaigning (ie Joan Crawford launching that infamous anti Bette Davis smear campaign, Sally Kirkland basically prostituting herself, Harvey Weinstein lobbying hard to get those 7 Oscars to Shakespeare in Love etc etc)

    And to think that there’s so much dirt we don’t know about

    Louis B. Mayer created the Oscars cause he knew the best way to keep actors and filmakers aroused to make more money to the studios was to create a prestigious prize where everybody in the industry would die to get their hands into.

    So yeah, it’s been a beauty peagant since day one and it’s much more interesting to see their campaign skills and will to win than the actual quality cause art is subjective, someone is gonna disagree with the winners etc etc.

    But I agree, it’s too much money for a pageant.

    Renée having a transformative baity role for a biopic + a comeback narrative alone is enough for recognition tbh. Box office would have a big effect if her main competitor’s film wasn’t on Netflix.

    Renee’s main competitior hasnt debuted yet FYI. 350 theaters for Judy is not good. This movie is the type of film that should debut in 4 theaters, get 50k+ per average and then build on that momentum. But with that rollout is a gurenteed flop which will hurt a winning campaign for her. Last actress to win with low box office was Hillary Swank in Boys Don’t Cry.

    Too bad the best actor race is too competitve this year, even for a nomination. He should change his gender.

    Also if I were to tell someone five years ago both Jennifer Lopez and Adam Sandler would deliver critically aclaimed performances in critically acclaimed movies and gain award tractions in the same year, I would be laughed at and called insane!

    Theron is not Renee’s biggest contender. Bombshell is going to, well, bomb.

    For Your Consideration.

    What if I told you five years ago that there would be three Netflix films heavily in the Best Picture race with one of them directed by Martin Scorsese?

    It has a stellar cast of women and Randolph won an Oscar for The Big Short.
    But I’m wondering the same thing. I won’t hold my breathe for its box office, and it’s not a comedy nor jewellery heist…

    Scott Rudin inspires much confidence in a project’s visibility to voters.. so it’s not about getting lost in the shuffle for Uncut Gems, but rather making Sandler’s narrative (to a nomination) better than everyone else’s competing for the slots not filled by Driver and Phoenix
