    Possibly the worst ceremony of the century. Pure trash. I won’t bother to post my personal nominees for this year as they are probably on another thread already. What I would have voted for out of the nominees:

    Picture: Sound of metal
    Director: Lee Isaac Chung
    Actor: Riz Ahmed
    Actress: Carey Mulligan
    Supporting Actor: Paul Raci
    Supporting Actress: Youn Yuh-jung
    Adapted Screenplay: The Father
    Original Screenplay: Sound of Metal

    Only good winner would be Raci lol

    Anthony Hopkins gave the performance of a lifetime and deservingly won a very competitive race for Best Actor.

    Best crop of acting wins i witnessed when following the Oscars. Personal picks from the nominees would probably be a small variation of that. Ofc some weak links happened like Original Screenplay and International Film but I end up satisfied. And Frances winning is the icing of the cake, couldn’t go higher than that.

    FYC: Memoria and House of Gucci for Best Picture

    Honestly I was struggling to get to 5 nominees for this category. I would just give it to The Father, with the runner-up being Nomadland. Nothing else in this category really stuck out to me that much and I didn’t want to stick in 3 fillers lol.

    Excellent acting wins (although I would’ve chosen Raci over Kaluuya) but worst award show I’ve ever seen in my entire life. This includes the trashy grammys, mtv movie awards, etc.

    A truly unpopular opinion.Last year’s Best actress lineup was extremely mediocre.I feel like the only reason it got so much attention was because of the fractured awards race.
    Frances McDormand , Viola Davis and Andra Day gave good performances but weren’t deserving of nominations in my opinion.

    The lineup should’ve been
    1.Vanessa Kirby
    2.Carey Mulligan
    3.Jessie Buckley
    4.Alfre Woodard
    5.Elisabeth Moss for The Invisble Man.
    6.Radha Blank .

    I respectfully disagree with your post about the Oscars’ best actress lineup but your personal line-up is just iconic! All fantastic performances.

    It was such a shame seeing Elisabeth Moss getting ignored completely in spite of delivering two fantastic performances that year. Not every awards lineup has to be identical to each other.

    FYC:

    "The Good Fight" and "The Other Two" in all categories.

    While I disagree with your order, and I’d have found spots for Nicole Beharie and Carrie Coon in my own personal listing, nonetheless your proposed lineup is iconic.
