     Chicago 7 making the Fab 5 (Picture, Directing, Cinematography, Editing, Screenplay) means it’s even a stronger threat than previously thought. But the same could be said about Nomadland.

    Ummm, Chicago 7 missed Directing.

    Awful is a bit drastic. It’s still massive for him and a delightful surprise, especially when you remember it might have ousted Leto.

    Exactly. I’m really happy for him! It almost feels like restitution for not nominating him for Sorry to Bother You, but honestly I’ll take it, he was good in Judas and the film was set up for him to be outshined by Kaluuya so he did his job well.

    Justice for Passing, Tessa Thompson & Ruth Negga.

    I got mainly 4/5s a few 5/5 and the occasional 3. All in all, not bad.

    I’ve always been not confident with One Night in Miami on my prediction since Globe’s snub, but Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom... That’s the shocker no one expect at all.

    Despite all the snubs and surprises, I’m quite pleased with those beautiful lineup. Everything seems right and enough. I’m so glad they actually care about quality (The Father) in addition of narrative (J&TBM and TTOC7) and filmmaking style (Nomadland). I’m not saying that the others are bad (they all are excellent actually), but The Father is so good that it’s actually so easy to snub.

    I literally have spent years of my life living in sub-Saharan Africa so fuck off. Ugh Americans.

    I’m South Asian, not American. And if that sentence is true, maybe you’re just massively, insanely…unobservant. Sweat + bronzer + dark skin = looks “oily”. Dark-skinned South Asians are called oily all the time too. Doesn’t take a genius to figure that shit out, but here you are derp derp I studied abroad in africa derp derp I can’t be racist

    You’re right!! I’m so sorry, I completely forgot. Well, Nomadland is winning.

    Ma rainey being “sweaty” like that was literally the point of that movie. If anything that proves the movie did its job

    I want to make a funeral for my two favorite male performances of the year, Delroy Lindo and Tahar Rahim.

    May them rest in peace on the heaven of snubbed performances that were the best of the best.

    Yeah Argo and Green Book mean it’s not out yet. It’s a big miss, but not a killer.

    Four noms for News of the World, there ya go.

    Bit disappointed there was no love for David Copperfield.

    Worst nom was Ma Rainey’s for makeup, with that excessive oily cleavage sweat, woman needs to see a doctor!

    Turns out boy children don’t get nominated. Sorry Lil’ Kim.

    What do you think Make up is???
    It’s the front runner for Hair & Make up. It’s mostly been winning everywhere else.

    On balance, I don’t think the snub for Ma Rainey is egregious. The movie genuinely has trouble being adapted from the stage to the screen. It has electric performances but as a whole, yeah I can see why.

    But One Night in Miami hurts. It just does. It’s a good movie, it’s well-adapted, it’s directed with surprising restraint, and all of its performances are genuinely compelling. It’s a very good movie in a year with not many good or great ones. Honestly, I thought the Academy would nominate 5 films this year because it’s a crap year (Nomadland and Minari are sublime, ONIM, and Judas are very good—but aside from that it’s a bad year).

    I’m happy for Sound of Metal. That’s a surprising one. I don’t know how I feel about the movie yet because it’s a really good indie film & I need to sit with Riz Ahmed’s performance. But I think it’s a much bolder choice than PYW.

    Justice for Passing, Tessa Thompson & Ruth Negga.

    So let me get right, last year movies like Joker and 1917 managed to get Screenplay nominations for those dull, non-existent screenplays, but something like Mank completely missed????

    I swear, these Academy people.
