    Also, Blanchett’s American accents can be as or even more unconvincing than Kidman’s. See The Missing, Where’d You Go Bernadette, Truth. It was even a little stagey and unnatural in Blue Jasmine but not to the point of distraction

    That’s the whole point of the character.

    Frances McDormand playing a role she has played over and over again except this time without lots of colourful language in Three Billboards…..;

    Margo Robbie & Allison Janney (wasted) in one-note broad work in I. Tonya;

    Kevin Spacey & Annette Benning (see I, Tonya) in American Beauty.

    I’m pretty sure people saying Joaquin Phoenix for the Joker are not serious and are only saying this because of all the hype he’s having right now… he’s absolutely incredible.

    I’m pretty sure that YOU are following the hype of the film and will notice in time that Phoenix as Joker is NOT an absolutely incredible performance.

    Phoenix is very good in Joker but that’s not even among his best. It will never beat The Master or Her

    I’ll just consider “oscar nominated” as an indicator of a movie being overrated

    Yalitza Aparicio in Roma.
    Sam Elliott, Ruby Dee and all the older people getting nominated solely because they’re old.
    Some of Meryl Streep’s works
    Judi Dench. Lol
    Mahershala in Moonlight.
    Brie Larson in Room.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    Frances McDormand in everything. (especially Fargo)

    Her best performance was reading O-livi-a Col-man.

    Kathy Bates for Best Supporting Actress (Richard Jewell)

    Even though he’s fully sweeping, I found Phoenix’s material (not his performance) lackluster. All he did was the fake laugh instead of crying thing. Overall he was great throughout, he captured Fleck’s essence and staff, but at the same time I felt like the character was written to be multiple people throughout different phases of the film, like it wasn’t the same person from the beginning till the end.

    Is he?

    No, the movie is trash and his performance as technically proficient as it is doesn’t warrant end of the year kudos.

    This is a sign of showing a character ark! A lot of people have been complaining about him being one-note so this is in interesting take… I think with Arthur, the shifts are extra pronounced because he’s still sort of shopping for his personality. He’s so, so socially unaware that he takes on these different roles throughout the film–he tries being the self-deprecating nice guy, he tries being the sardonic guy who is too smart for the world..ultimately the final personality he adopts is that of the Joker, in which he finds himself.
