Spider-Man : Into The Spider-Verse really was a million times better than most of the latest Best Picture nominees
Agreed. I haven’t LOVED a Spiderman film adaptation because they pale in comparison to two of the animated tv versions in terms of character depth and development and pure writing. However, this Spider-Verse comes so close to their quality. It’s by far the best super hero movie ever, and I’m including all the Nolan Batmans.March 5, 2019 at 12:46 am #1202804285
Despite the fact that Marion Cotillard gave one of the best performances of this century, I still think that Julie Christie was better and should have won the Oscar.March 5, 2019 at 1:58 am #1202804300
I’ll never understand how Frances won last year. She didn’t campaign and we know voters saw and love The Shape of Water. Sally’s performance was so much superior imo.
Frances is one of the most popular actresses in Hollywood who had been working steadily in film and TV in the years leading up 2017- the industry loves her and she hadn’t been embraced by Hollywood for a while. And personally I felt her performance was fantastic and I’m sure many others felt the same way. Hawkins was great though.Under different circumstances Robbie would have been the frontrunner as she seems to fit the Academy’s criteria for awarding Best Actress winners(young/hot, real person, juicy role).I think Tonya Harding is still too disliked by the general public for the Oscars to reward somebody playing her character.March 5, 2019 at 3:03 am #1202804349
Rooney Mara should have won for Girl with the Dragon TattooMarch 5, 2019 at 4:40 am #1202804415
I think Kevin Spacey was excellent in Billionaire Boys Club. Lol
I just love movies. And awards.March 6, 2019 at 9:08 am #1202806029
Rami Malek was Razzie-worthy in Bohemian Tragedy and it’s probably one of the worst Best Actor wins ever.March 6, 2019 at 1:01 pm #1202806318
I don’t know if this is an unpopular opinion but I recently rewatched The Fighter and, though I’ve never been his biggest fan, Mark Wahlberg honestly deserved a Best Actor nomination. He was definitely the most understated and subtle in the film, but I was really affected by his performance. Really impressive. I hope he goes back to doing dramas like that instead of his lame action movies.March 9, 2019 at 9:59 am #1202810255
Cate Blanchett for me is talented, but she has had some very questionable nominations.
-Elizabeth – Deserving/Should have won
-Noted on a Scandle – Deserved nod
-I’m Not There – Undeserved nod
-The Aviator – Underserved Nod/Horrible win
-Elizabeth: Golden Age – Underserved nod
-Blue Jasmine – Deserved win
-Carol – Deserved nodMarch 9, 2019 at 6:56 pm #1202810650
Cabaret – 1972 [ A ++ ]
Great performance by Michael York in playing “Brian Roberts”. His performance is dreadfully overlook. Brian’s naive, gawky effeminate behavior is extraordinary/solid performance throughout the movie ( for someone who is confused of sexuality ) – fell in love with Sally ( played by Liza Minnelli – high spirited, vulgar yet vulnerable cabaret singer ). The two had distinct personalities ( notable performances – one was loud while the other was subtle. Liza recieved an Oscar but Michael was not even nominated. I think Michael deserves an Oscar nod too.March 9, 2019 at 10:16 pm #1202810827
Paddington 2 should have been nominated for Best Picture and Adapted Screenplay.
Grant for Supporting Actor.
Hawkins for Supporting Actress.March 9, 2019 at 10:47 pm #1202810842
-I’m Not There – Undeserved nod -The Aviator – Underserved Nod/Horrible win -Elizabeth: Golden Age – Underserved nod
I agree on Elizabeth Pt. 2 and The Aviator. I disagree with I’m Not There. That’s one of her best performances. As for The Aviator. My god how did she win with that? I was a bit disappointed when I saw it, and I do think it’s one of the worst wins for BSA that decade. It was probably a make-up win due to losing for Elizabeth Pt. 1 to Paltrow.March 10, 2019 at 10:53 am #1202811318

What was bad about her performance on the Aviator? I see people say that a lot on here. I thought she was great.
