    Honestly I feel like the way it was phrased it was almost as if the user was against people of colour getting nominated or they are just finding every reason in the world to hate on contenders to suit their narrative. Why other reason is there that Amazon (who got both Fleabag and Maisel nominated at the Emmys and have billions of dollars at their disposal) can’t get two performers in?

    Some people just don’t want to hear the truth on these forums…

    You and David Holmes two months ago saying Andra Day was winning because she was in a Lee Daniels film.

    That wasn’t the only reason I was predicting her to win… I’m pretty sure you’re the same person who said Emma can slip into Bp and said it was this year’s Ford v. Ferrari.

    who said Emma can slip into Bp.

    Notice how I said could and not will. I never predicted Emma. You and David Holmes claiming high profile director = Oscar win on the other hand was something you were pushing down everyone’s thoughts for months because you were both rooting hard for the film.

    Yet you accuse everyone else on this forum of predictions bias.

    We talked a lot about lessons learnt from last year but I think the real lesson that needs to be learnt is that two similar films aren’t both getting into Picture. In subject matter The Farewell and Parasite couldn’t be more different but both were black comedies focusing on Asian families that were told largely in another language. Whilst it isn’t the principal reason why The Farewell under-performed the fact that Parasite did so well and was being celebrated as “the bold black comedy about an Asian family in another language” hurt it.

    IMO only one of Ma Rainey and One Night in Miami will get into Picture considering how similar they are in set up as “stagey period pieces with themes around institutional racism”. Perhaps one of The Trial of the Chicago 7 and Judas and the Black Messiah might be affected by this because of the fact that both have similar subject matters (although I’m sure in execution and stylistically both are very different).

    Some of you keep telling me Judas can’t win because of the HBO Max thing. Please tell me which film exactly suffer from your so-called “industry conspiracy against streaming service” in BP race? Give me proof, not your guess.

    And don’t tell me ROMA.

    Dunkirk and Darkest Hour were both about the exact same historic event (Operation Dynamo) during World War II.

    The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything were both period pics about famous British scientists.

    The Artist and Hugo were both tributes to cinema set during the 1920s.

    Saving Private Ryan and The Thin Red Line were both about battles during the World War II.

    Spike Lee will get in Directing, and he may be the actual runner-up/challenger to Zhao.

    dont bother entertaining baseless theories by desperate stans hoping to keep their fave film’s chances alive.

    Good job, you two.  The users known as Leo’s Burner and David Holmes do indeed have the same IP address.
