    I certainly didn’t mind Timothée Chalamet missing out for Beautiful Boy. Not only did the blatant category fraud bother me, but his stans were at their most unbearable that year. Yes, he’s a brilliant actor and he deserved to win for Call Me by Your Name, but they act like he’s the most overdue performer in the world. He’s in his early 20s, he’s got plenty of time to win.

    While I agree with this, Rockwell making it in for Vice was inarguably a really bad choice.

    Probably McDonagh missing for directing “3 Billboards.” Ugh, if that mess happened.

    Most of the time, the Oscars nominate things that I hate or dislike but Farrelly and McDonagh not making it in gives me life.

    “No user starts this shady” - someone culturally relevant.

    I don’t really mind Rockwell’s nomination. I wouldn’t have voted for him, but he delivered a solid and very funny Bush impression without acting like too much of a caricature, which is actually somewhat impressive when playing someone as cartoonish as George W. Bush. And unlike Chalamet, he was actually supporting.

    I understand the Farrelly snub, but I really don’t get hate on this forum for McDonagh/Billboards. Can someone explain to me why this movie is so unpopular with some users on GD?

    My personal Top 10 of the 2019 so far:
    1) Parasite 2) The Farewell 3) Joker 4) Once Upon a Time in Hollywood 5) The Peanut Butter Falcon 6) Marriage Story 7) Luce 8) Yesterday 9) Hotel Mumbai 10) Avengers: Endgame

    Emma Thompson for Saving Mr Banks. An unpopular opinion but I don’t get the hype / hysteria over her missing that year. Not my favourite performance of hers.

    Ridley Scott for The Martian. There was talk early in the season of him winning, mostly because he was considered overdue, but I was constantly thinking ‘for this movie over his previous work?’ I wasn’t at all sad to see him missing on nomination morning.

    Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips. He was very good but on reflection I find all five nominated performances to be better, even Christian Bale’s. Not to mention there were other more deserving performances that were snubbed, such as Oscar Isaac in Inside Llewyn Davis and Joaquin Phoenix in Her.

    I would have been fine with her getting in, but I couldn’t help thinking that she wasn’t undeniable to the extent that everyone made it seem at the time with the vitriol towards Adams and Streep’s nominations (which I think were very worthy)

    Not sure if this was really a snub since it probably wasn’t even in the top 10, but Tom Hanks wasn’t a good Walt Disney in Saving Mr. Banks. Tom Hanks is a great actor, but that wasn’t it.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best Picture: Weathering With You, Parasite, The Lighthouse
    Best Supporting Actor: Willem Dafoe - The Lighthouse
    Best Animated Feature: Weathering With You, Promare
    Best International Film: Weathering With You, Parasite

    I danced at

    Affleck

    AFFLECK

    AFFLECK!!!!!

    That fucking movie.

    I also thought it was very funny that Cooper’s efforts for Directing backfired after he showed that level of thirst 🧡

    Just last year I have these supported snubs.

    • If Beale Street Could Talk for Best Picture. God this was bland. Super bland. The only good thing in it is Regina King and the score (robbed!).
    • Timothee Chalamet for Best Supporting Actor. Sam Rockwell deserved his spot.
    • Ethan Hawke for Best Actor. Hawke was good but not Oscar-worthy.
    • Crazy Rich Asians for almost anything.

    Lupita for a nomination. Renee for a win. That's it.

    It’s pretty funny that people actually thought Mary Poppins Returns would get nominated for Best Picture and Best Actress just because the first one did over 50 years ago. I always knew Blunt would miss the nomination to Aparicio.

    Me too. I remember when I saw Roma back in December, I was so impressed by Yalitza Aparcio’s performance that I was disappointed that she wasn’t gaining enough traction with the precursors. Yet, I held on to her all season long for several reasons, which includes her narrative of how she was this untrained actress given the chance to star in a movie that also had a lot of heat in the Best Picture race. I also thought that with the more international voters joining the academy in recent years, that they would want to prevent an all white lineup for Best Actress. Plus, Mary Poppins Returns at that point was pretty much losing momentum in the awards conversation, and I thought that academy members were going to feel “been there, done that” with the property. Not to mention that while Emily Blunt was campaigning for A Quiet Place in Best Supporting Actress, the actors branch had the freedom to nominate that performance in lead. Which happened to Kate Winslet when she was campaigning for two different films in 2008. She campaigned for Revolutionary Road in Best Actress while campaigning for The Reader in Best Supporting Actress. However, the academy not only gave her a Best Actress nomination for The Reader, but also a win. So with that particular factor in mind, I felt that Emily Blunt was going to split her support overall, especially given how both of the films she had last year didn’t appear to have much support from the academy.
