    It’s useless to compare a 30-years old movie with something that debuted 4 months ago.

    I had a dream last night that kirby won and this thread descended into utter chaos with heads exploding.

    I had a dream last night that I become the richest man in the world.

    Well, the first half of your profile name wishes he was that.

    That would not be a pleasant reality to live in

    I genuinely feel like predicting Kirby just for fun, seeing as I still have a 3/4 chance of being wrong with the others. Imagine if GG-CC-SAG-BAFTA-AMPAS all went to different people. It would honestly be iconic.

    FYC:

    Best Director - Lee Isaac Chung (Minari), Darius Marder (Sound of Metal)

    Lead Actor - Delroy Lindo (Da 5 Bloods), Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round), Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal)

    Supporting Actor - Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

    Supporting Actress - Youn Yuh-jung (Minari)

    I will be the first to admit that Carey Mulligan gave one of the most thought provoking and button pushing performances of modern cinema. I am pleased to no end that this film has promoted positive dialogue within your immediate social circle. In all sincerity, I mean that. I am all for anything that moves society towards better.

    With that being said, I believe you are severely overestimating the cultural impact of PYW. Comparing 30, 50, 70 even 90 year old films to more recent ones would be the most practical course taken within the context of an informed Oscars discussion.  Thelma & Louise kicked off 1992’s  “Year of the Woman” a year long cultural recognition thrust celebrating and honoring the accomplishments of women. This film kicked down the doors for female characterizations like Cassie and Amy to fully blossom onscreen. Not since Davis & Sarandon has their been one film, dual nods in Actor or Actress Assuredly, the awards won during that time were comparable to now. Of course, anyone with a internet connection can invent a film critics society. I digress.

    Impact!

    After Thelma & Louise, the Oscars shifted its tastes where female centric films like Erin Brockovich, The Hours, Chicago, The Piano, Monster and Boys Don’t Cry received recognition.

    What Mulligan & Fennell have accomplished is not new or revolutionary, as a matter of fact, they namestamp the ‘feminist’ BP nominee they’ve come to fashion the last few years. Its all lip service. Bombshell, Lady Bird, Little Women all failed in their bids.

    My primary problem with PYW is the complete silencing of Nina, the actual sexual assault victim. She is never seen on screen. Her voice is never heard. Cassie’s voice is not Nina’s voice. Cassie is a sick and demented person who earned her destiny. I cannot fully get behind her character as she sank to the depths of depravity simply because she had nothing better to do. That is how the characterization came across to me. The film was visually appealing with all of the glossy pinks and brightness in direct contrast to seedy dysfunctional drama unfolding onscreen. A cute trick but it doesn’t distract the thinking mind from pondering why is the victim silenced throughout?

    At the end of the day, all of them won an award for their performances already (with Kirby getting Volpi Cup). Good for them.

    Cassie is not demented or sick. Let’s stop stigmatizing women who are traumatized, depressed and are carrying survivor’s guilt.

    YES! People so easily like to forget that it was Kirby who started this all off with her big Venice win. Even if she wins nothing else, that was a major get in a “spread-the-wealth” sort of year.

    “Carey Mulligan Boards Adam Sandler Netflix Movie ‘Spaceman’” https://deadline.com/2021/04/carey-mulligan-joins-adam-sandler-netflix-movie-spaceman-1234734945/ Razzie nominee Carey Mulligan? LOL

    I read the article and it doesn’t sound like a comedy? Am I getting the wrong impression
