     I’m Thinking Of Ending Things is easily his worst film yet. Again, the performances are the saving grace, but not one of the characters are likable…………. Most importantly, the screenplay, in an attempt to blend Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf? and Stephen King’s The Shining, tries too hard to blend those two tales and instead of being effective, comes across as self-indulgent and pretentious.

    Period. I’m convinced people only pretend to like this movie to show how much smarter they are than those who don’t. It was horrendously terrible, worst movie I have seen in years. If it wasn’t Kaufman it would’ve been unanimously panned.

    Synecdoche is a masterpiece tho, and I really like John Malcovich and Eternal Sunshine.

    The Academy should consider extending the number of nominees for the 2022 ceremony by a minimum of 2.

    The 2019 Supporting Actor nominees is the worst acting lineup of recent memory especially considering who all got snubbed that year. Here’s a list if you forgot:

    Steven Yeun- ‘Burning’
    Daniel Kaluuya- ‘Widows’
    Timothée Chalamet- ‘Beautiful Boy’
    Nicholas Hoult- ‘The Favourite’
    Brian Tyree Henry- ‘If Beale Street Could Talk’
    Michael B Jordan- ‘Black Panther’ (was fine with this snub, but I would’ve taken him over Rockwell and Driver)

    Emma Stone should have been the submitted Lead for The Favourite and won (regardless of whether she had won for La La Land or not). And then Rachel Weisz should have won Supporting Actress over Colman and King.

    However Colman was the deserving winner of that 2018 lineup but I still think Weisz should have won over King (as much as I loved King’s performance).

    This being said The Favourite also should have won Picture and Original Screenplay over Green Book. The latter’s screenplay was so bland that it’s kind of ironic the Academy went from Green Book to Parasite within the space of a year.

    Here are some of my very unpopular opinions:
    – Jennifer Lawrence’s nomination for American Hustle was an embarrassment and her performance is possibly the worst to be nominated this century (and this is coming from someone who liked her in Winter’s Bone and SLP)

    – Joaquin Phoenix really shouldn’t have won for Joker (should have won for The Master instead).

    – Octavia Spencer did nothing in Hidden Figures, and it was a shame that she was the only actress from it to be nominated when Taraji did so much better.

    – Octavia Spencer was great in The Shape of Water and deserved her nomination.

    – Daniel Kaluuya in Get Out was far from the best performance in the film.

    – Sandra Bullock in Gravity is underrated and was one of the best acting performances this decade and it’s unfortunate that Bullock won for her nothing performance in Blind Side instead of this (Blanchett still deserved her win though).

    – Julia Roberts in Erin Brockovich didn’t deserve to win but her performance is still better than 75% of the best actress winners of this century. Also, Laura Linney deserved to win that year, Ellen Burstyn did the most acting but not the best acting.

    – Halle Berry shouldn’t have even been nominated for Monster’s Ball.

    – The 1998 best supporting actress category is the weakest field of any acting category in recent memory.

    Vulture did a Butterfly Effect piece on this earlier this year.

    2009 — Streep wins over Bullock.
    2011 — Davis wins over Streep.
    2013 – Bullock wins over Blanchett.
    2015 — Blanchett & Mara win for Carol.
    2016 — Davis goes lead for Fences, Williams wins in supporting.

    Baby driver wasn’t that good. It had good editing and a good gimmick of the music syncing up with the driving scenes. But as a story is pretty shallow and ansel acting was just him scowling

    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.

    This just gives the Academy and the industry at large an out rather than addressing the sexism that sees female directors get overlooked.

    Bullshit. Just say you were unmoved by the nominee slates of the 71st ceremony.

    Frances McDormand shouldn’t have won for Fargo. It was an obvious category fraud for a supporting role. If anything Emily Watson should’ve won for her wonderful performance in breaking the waves or Brenda blethyn for secrets and lies

    I,Tonya should have gotten nominated in Directing and Original Screenplay and won Best Picture.

    Lesley Manville’s performance in Phantom Thread is overrated but that year in S. Actress was so weak that I think only Janney and Metcalf were deserving of the nominations.
