    <p style=”text-align: left;”>I made myself mad in another thread thinking about it lol but Boy Erased was offensively mediocre and portrayed conversion therapy as abusive Sunday school. The real horrors of what these kinds of programs put their unwilling participants through are far worse and I found it so disingenuous that the film didn’t go there. Felt like it was made with straight audiences in mind.</p>

    More chaotic than a soderbergh Oscars

    With the exception of Troye Sivan who was in the film for what felt like a combined 25 seconds! I’m not one of those people that minds when a straight person plays a gay role (disclaimer: I’m a gay man) but my goodness you’d think that they would at least try to portray the lived experience of a gay man if you’re going to do it!

    Apart from Amy Adams’ performance and some of the crafts, <i>American Hustle </i>is one of the most mediocre Best Picture contenders in Oscar history.

    I have mixed feelings towards Mank but Amanda Seyfried was absolutely incredible and is deserving of nominations at this awards season. Whilst I enjoyed Gary Oldman’s performance it felt caricaturey at times (mainly because of the scattered writing which unlike Citizen Kane (which of course the writing was paying an homage to) didn’t seem to say much when it came to character?). Seyfried’s performance was both deep and comical and was both human and fantastical. She lit up the screen whenever she came on. She isn’t top 3 for me in my personal awards but she would be a deserving winner.

    Same with Viola Davis. Despite her screen time she lit up every time she was on screen (for me), handled the comedic and dramatic beats of the role well and did something unique  that she’s never done before in her career. She’s not in my personal awards lineup but she’d be deserving as a winner too. As CateNicole said before people need to stop dismissing performances that aren’t their favourites as terrible or razzie worthy. They wouldn’t be in the conversation if they were.

    Well said, especially the part in bold. I agree with Wolfali that both Viola Davis and Amanda Seyfried were phenomenal and worthy of Oscar wins, but it’s perfectly fine if you didn’t like their performances and don’t agree. Just don’t let your bias get in the way of your predictions.

    I don’t think is unpopular or popular since most of you have not seen it LOL.

    But for me Malcolm and Marie has become a Classic.

    Darren Criss and Natasha Lyonne have made entire careers out of it.

    CMBYN’s greatness and Chalamet’s performance depends mainly on Guadagnino’s direction and Ivory’s screenplay.

    Just like any film performance ever. Being capable to listen to your director and reading your screenplay takes nothing away from your performance.

    Pantheon of acting: Uta / Elizabeth / Richard / Sandy (Virginia Woolf), Bibi / Liv (Persona), Sandrine (La Ceremonie), Brie (Short Term 12), Jodie (Silence of the Lambs), Jodie (Killing Eve), Nicole (The Others), Eva (Penny Dreadful), Timothée (CMBYN), Lupita (Us)

    Unfortunately that doesn’t look like happening any time soon. Have you read the reviews of Locked Down? They’re yikes.

    That’s three flops in 12 months. She is in Armageddon Time though.

    I honestly hope for the sake of our society that this is not unpopular. That movie was crap and Amy deserves better.
