Oscar deserves a nom for The Card Counter this year more than Bardem anyways.January 20, 2022 at 4:25 pm #1204740890
Now I’m trying to imagine Oscarito singing that chick-chicky boom song… 😂😍January 20, 2022 at 6:11 pm #1204741051
Finding out we could have had Oscar as Desi…my disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined.January 20, 2022 at 6:39 pm #1204741082
Not only would Oscar Isaac have out-acted Bardem’s brownface performance with ease, but Isaac is actually Cuban, like the real Desi Arnaz.

I’ve never been that big a fan of Peter Dinklage (he won too many Emmys for GoT) and I thought Cyrano was quite flawed as a film but I have to say it would be really cringey if Bardem gets nominated over him lol.

I finally saw Pig. Really nice and interesting film, made me emotional a couple of times.
Nicolas Cage is fantastic in it and would be a great and inspired nominee. However only Critics Choice, no BAFTA longlist, not a single trifecta, not even Indie Spirit. That makes me sad.
I really don’t want to hear Bardem’s name on Oscar morning… rooting for Cage and Simon Rex. Hopefully one of them can get enough #1s to get in.January 20, 2022 at 8:40 pm #1204741232
If he was, he would have swept up some of these critics awards to go along with his starfucking Globe. But his whole push has been about him being in a “feel good” movie and the fact that he’s overdue. Take away that, and he’s nothing against Cumberbatch, Washington or Garfield. Other actors in this race have received more acclaim. Smith playing Richard Williams in a Lifetime-like movie is hardly a “masterclass of acting.”
You can doubt Will’s chances all you want but King Richard was not a Lifetime-like movie. Stop.January 20, 2022 at 10:37 pm #1204741304
King Richard is a well-made but aggressively straightforward sports biopic that has no business of being an Oscar contender outside of acting (and even there, I don’t really think it’s that deserving). It is better than many movies in contention this year, but my god is it just average. The only reason this is so high in people’s predictions is that the film festival people hyped to this death because they think they know Oscars voters so well (lmao) — looking at Scott Feinberg. Smith is good, but this performance is so 2010, aka boring. Ellis is great but meh. I liked Saniyya in it, but the script doesn’t give her much to work with.
Definitely one of the most overhyped movies of the year — but still better than Belsnore, Don’t Look Up (#absolutetrash) etc.January 20, 2022 at 11:00 pm #1204741317
Speaking of King Richard,it will be a massive embarrassment for the Academy if Aunjanue Ellis misses while the film gets nominated for Original Screenplay.January 20, 2022 at 11:06 pm #1204741324

Tbh it will be embarrassing if that film is recognised with a Picture nomination and she isn’t considering she was by far the MVP of it.

You guys are acting like King Richard is a Blind Side type mess, when it’s nothing of the sort!

It’s not a mess—it’s blandly competent. That doesn’t mean it’s good.January 20, 2022 at 11:55 pm #1204741365This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.Not now
