    Oh boy, this season is really, really dull so far. To be honest, I have no desire to see nearly any of the contenders and I’ve only seen Little Women which was good but I still prefer the 1994 version.I don’t care about war films so 1917 and JoJo Rabbit are out, Joker looks terrible, The Irishman looks like the same old same old Scorsese film,Once Upon A Time In Hollywood looks like the same old same old Tarantino film, Marriage Story looks pretty contrived, and I couldn’t care less about Ford and Ferrari. Call me negative and close minded but this season feels like a dumpster fire. And most of the races aren’t that exciting either.

    Maybe actually watch those things? I can positively say you are very off base with certain films, like Jojo Rabbit and Marriage Story.

    I personally really enjoyed Marriage Story, Jojo Rabbit, Little Women and Parasite.
    Joker and 1917 
    were middling for me.
    Didn’t care for The Irishman, Ford V. Ferrari or Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood.

    So overall this was a mixed year for me. The only film I would have been really enthused about getting nominations/wins this awards season was The Farewell and that didn’t happen.I strongly recommend giving some of these movies a chance though…

    I’ve gotta admit… I hopped into this thread expecting a takedown of homogeneous categories and predictable races with at most 2 viable winners rather than an “all of these movies don’t appeal to me” rant.

    I mean, it’s a pretty bad year (for compelling awards – not movies as a whole) when Visual Effects seems like the most unpredictable dart throw category right now.

    I think this might be the most stellar year for Best Picture nominees in a long time. I’ve seen Joker, Parasite, Jojo Rabbit, Ford v Ferrari, Marriage Story, and The Irishman so far and thought all of them except The Irishman were fantastic! 4 of those films are in my Top 5 of the year. You really should actually see these movies before making any brash judgements about them. At least give Parasite a try: it’s my favorite movie since Fury Road and almost everyone who’s seen it loves it.

    I love five of the BP nominees (1917, Parasite, Little Women, Marriage Story and Ford v Ferrari) – love 3 of the 5 Actor nominees (Driver, Banderas, Pryce), all 4 of the actresses I have seen (haven’t seen Erivo), 4 of the 5 Supporting Actors (everyone but Pitt), and everyone but Dern – there are some truly GREAT nominees! The problem is that the winners are terrible this year, at least for me, which makes it a dull awards season. Hoping for miracles and upset winners!

    -The Best picture lineup is really great and better than last year.
    -The best actor lineup is better than last year
    -The best actress lineup is not as good as last year but solid.
    -The supporting actor lineup is better than last year
    -The supporting actress lineup is terrible.

    The winners are mostly terrible (Renee, Dern, and Pitt).

    This season is the best since 2016 when Leo won for the revenant.

    A lot of the movies and performances are great but from what we’re seeing all four Acting categories are going to be sweeps, which is incredibly boring.

    Still pulling for a few upsets!

    Disagree with the content of the main post. To summarize what others have said, the race is dull but the movies are excellent.

    Side note, certain large categories like best Picture, Director, Screenplays, Editing are still exciting. It’s the acting races and certain locked up techs (cinematography, sound, etc) that make it more predictable.

    Speak for yourself.  I loved this Oscar season.  So many auteur driven films and indie gems.  Loved the nominations as well.  A year where Brad Pitt and Joaquin Phoenix win competitive Oscars? Come on!

    The acting categories are boring as hell this year (which usually are the most fun).

    You haven’t watched any of them, you numbskull. That’s why it’s boring to you.

    Big fan of Better Call Saul, Sex Education, Barry, BoJack Horseman, and, especially, Survivor
