    Debra Messing was born to play Lucille Ball. Not Cate Blanchett!

    Lost in Translation is overrated although ScarJo should have been nominated at the Oscars.

    FYC:

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

    I’d also argue that Marriage Story as a whole is incredibly dreadful and boring.

    FYC:

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

    Agree. It’s really not that great

    But I like the idea of a female-directed movie being so highly regarded so I still support it

    FYC

    Best Actress - Pénélope Cruz, Olivia Colman

    Best Actor - Denzel Washington

    Best Supporting Actress - Aunjanue Ellis

    Borat was painfully unfunny and the sequel looks even worse.

    I know this year will have at least one female nominee in best director. But I wouldn’t mind if they divided the category by gender for the sake of expanding the recognition for women. If distributors knew that female directed movies had a guaranteed spot at the Oscars they would finance them without hesitation.

    I can see the argument.

    I would like the Oscars to expand all of their categories by at least a little bit. Like one or two more slots. To give more room for deserving contenders.

    I think there’d be (as there has been) significant pushback from female filmmakers for this. It’s essentially giving them a subset of success, not that it necessarily should be, but Director has been both sexes for all of history (even if only 5 women have been nominated) unlike the acting races which have been separated the whole time.

    That said, it would definitely be a huge factor in expanding female directors’ opportunities in the industry… This would guarantee 5 different female names yearly in the conversation. Granted, you’d see names like Coppola and Gerwig rack up like 7 career nominations, but it would still be incredible to see the number of female nominees we have seen double in one year.

    I thought Marriage Story was worthy of Best Picture and Best Director wins.

    The only person Ronan gave a stronger performance than in Actress in the 2018 lineup was Meryl Streep whilst Greta Gerwig was the second strongest director in that lineup and Laurie Metcalf was the strongest BY FAR in Supporting Actress.

    FYC:

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

    Saoirse Ronan always plays the same characters, actresses in her age range like Rooney Mara and Jessie Buckley are waaay better and more versatile than her.
