    Nothing, I guess. Everything seems deserving of its nominations, awards and acclaims so far. Perhaps, I will say that I don’t really like Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, but I can’t say it’s overrated.

    In terms of Best Picture:
    Trial of the Chicago 7
    Mank

    Acting:
    (For the record, I don’t hate these performances but they simply wouldn’t make my lineup)
    Viola Davis & Chadwick Boseman, MA RAINEY
    Gary Oldman, MANK
    Amanda Seyfried, MANK

    A nomination I hate:
    Sacha Baron Cohen, TRIAL OF THE CHICAGO 7 (easily the most underserved acting nomination this year)

    Basically this will happen every year with the nominees cause the agressive campaigns make them assume a posture of standard, when most arent true. Just too artificial.

    For example, I dont think there are any classics in this list of nominees (tho I appreciate Nomadland highly) but I’d say Promising Young Woman is the most overrated, not only for its nominations but the public reception, that puts it as some sort of innovative film when its just a revenge plot in a blockbuster.

    Trial of the Chicago 7 tho got its noms mostly on the overexposure but seems to be hated by most of the audiences (as it should). It’s just there.

    Anyway, those are just opinions and this thread feels too much of a cheap chance to drag whatever things one doesn’t like. Maybe it’s therapeutic lol.

    I am disappointed that we’re going from Parasite to Nomadland. I have my favorite, but from the lineup it should be The Father. (Haven’t seen Minari because the theater chains in my country hate me).
