    American Hustle is a completely forgettable movie – it’s Scorsese-lite, and not even good Scorsese-lite. Should have been nominated for nothing. ALL of Russell’s post-“I Heart Huckabees” work is garbage.

    So here’s obviously what happened at the Oscars with the Best Actress race where Viola was subbed, the vote got split between Davis and Day and Mcdormad ended up winning. It’s a damn shame but it’s what happened. What this means: that Clayton Davis was the only person to predict this, I kind of predicted it but didn’t think it was going to happen. Also, that the whole Carey Mulligan hype of her winning was just a load of rubbish. I said that all along, that her and Kirby scraped a nomination. In terms of Best Actor, Anthony Hopkins won fair and square. I only thought that when I saw the clips on Oscar night and was like damn he’s good in this, but still would have predicted Boseman. So the snub was Viola Davis, she was robbed. And this means big for a black actress to now really win.

    So why did Mulligan “scrape” a nomination when her movie was nominated for BP and won Screenplay, meanwhile Andra Day was the only nominee from her movie and was only nominated at the Globes before the Oscars? Even Viola Davis’ movie missed every major nomination outside Actor and Actress.

    Pls Carey Mulligan was like second or third not barely scraping a nomination. Her film was 3rd in Best Picture with its nomination performance and its screenplay win.

    ummmm, this is the Best Actress race, not Best Picture or screenplay, there seems to be some confusion that the films are the performances, that would be unfair for great performances in not Best Picture movies. I’m not denying the film, Fennell deserves her hype and her win, it’s great and the character is shocking and attention grabbing but Carey Mulligan was not going to win Best Actress

    the fact Mcdormad won actually says she was 4th or 5th as Clayton Davis predicted.

    Honey, vote split between Davis and Day my ass!  What happened is old white voter dudes are NOT voting for black women in Best Actress.  Plain and simple. #OscarsStillSoWhite

    Like many are saying in other forums, it’s highly likely that McDormand didn’t win having the majority of votes, all the five actress had votes split evenly since there was no definite consensus in this season.
    In other words, it was just a plurality win.

    The argument that Day & Davis “split votes” is extremely problematic and racist. No one would make that assertion about any of the White nominees. If that’s the case then did Mulligan & Kirby split the British vote?

    I’m curious who the Best Picture runner up was. Is there a consensus on here about that?

    People still on this vote splitting thing? I’m willing to bet Frances got an overwhelming majority of votes if voters were still inclined to give Nomadland 3 Oscars. Similarly at BAFTA Nomadland lost adapted there and voters swung for Frances in actress.

    The Father won Actor and Adapted Screenplay over two strong frontrunners with strong narratives. It was 2nd in Picture and probably in Supporting Actress too.

    Promising Young Woman was 3rd with the fact it was the only non Nomadland film to get picture, acting, directing, editing and screenplay nominations, it won the British Film BAFTA and the Screenplay Oscar and was probably top 3 in director and actress.

    After that it feels hazier. One thing I do feel somewhat confident in saying is that unlike my prediction prior to the ceremony, Mank was not last.
