    Can you elaborate on this? I may be reading this incorrectly, but are you trying to suggest that white people cannot be frustrated with the oppression that minorities face? Or that the notion of white privilege being prevalent and problematic is not correct?

    Again, I could completely be misinterpreting your statements, but your language confused me and I wanted to clarify before I weighed in on the matter.

    No, of course white people can be outraged over racism but I have met white people who are prone to attacking you for anything that can be misconstrued as racism. For example, I was explaining that blacks have a different way of singing than white people and other races do with them being able to do a lot of things vocally that white people really can’t do in the same way. That got shut down as racist and part of trying to prove that blacks are inferior to whites based on genetic makeup. I tell my black roommates about it who aren’t the least bit offended partly because they are also performers and know what I’m talking about. I’ve also witnessed this same person correct another person, stating that the term African American is the right term over black. Then later on I hear a black person criticize that term and all of the black people I know don’t care about the term black. It’s this insistence on everything being what a white person thinks is politically correct while abandoning logical thinking and attacking others who aren’t as “woke” as they are as racist that is irritating to me.

    As for white privilege, I think there are a lot of factors that people are oppressed by.This notion that white people are always automatically at an advantage over minorities tends to be used to ignore a lot of things such as biases over weight, disability, general appearance, economic status, sexual orientation, etc that affect people of all races. I’m not saying that racism against minorities in situations that wouldn’t affect a white person isn’t a real thing but it’s insulting to be told that you automatically have a substantial advantage over minorities in everything when really that isn’t the case.

    The thing between Eddie Redmayne vs Michael Keaton is that they really played two very difficult roles. Eddie was great impersonating Hawkins, but I felt he was sometimes a little bit forced and cartoonish, but overall a great performance. About Michael Keaton, I have to say he really embodied his character and truly delivered a tour de force. They are too different to be compared. It is a choice of taste. I prefer internal creations so I’d go with Keaton, but Redmayne had a very difficult job with his role and he was very convincing at the end.

    Acting teacher.

    Timothée Chalamet didn’t gave the best male lead performance this decade.

    I would say he’s probably top 10, but not top 5. Gold Derby users have a real issue with a recency bias. People are out here ready to call it the best male performance of all time and haven’t seen a movie made before 2010.

    Chalamet, Affleck and Phoenix (The Master and Her) – best male performances this decade

    Affleck is still the only outstanding best actor winner this decade. Everyone else is ranged from meh to terrible

    Oh listen people. Bruce Dern gave the best male acting performance this decade. He’s great in Nebraska and that movie is so underrated. That’s it.

    isabelle huppert should be nominated and won best actress for piano teacher,is disgrace that academy ignored her

    That opinion is not as unpopular as you think actually, I’ve read it a lot and I have to disagree.Both Naomi Watts and Laura Elena Harring deserved to be nominated and I would have been happy with any of them winning.

    Redmaybe’s portrayal of Hawkins definitely has flaws, but he can get a pass because that’s one hell of a character to accomplish! I’m fine with either Keaton or Redmayne winning, but I guess Redmayne edged out because of the obvious showy and difficult role he was playing. And I also agree the movie’s OST deserves to win too. That theme song that followed Redmayne everytime he won was so gorgeous and sublime. The only atrocious thing in this movie is Felicity Jones’ acting. Idk how she even got nominated IN BEST ACTRESS for that short, inadequate and one-note performance.

    8. Meryl Streep was great in August Osage County.

    Oh yeah. I just don’t know why people hate Meryl in AOC. She did great in there. She’s this cracked old lady who really had attitude issues and just can’t get along with her family. I mean, why hate her performance? Is it because Violet Weston is a real bitch? Come on, you can hate the character all the way you want but you just can’t deny Meryl’s superb acting skills. Too bad, she just can’t win on that year because you know: Blanchett, Bullock, Adams, Dench. Amazing performances (sans Dench, sorry) from amazing ladies. Also, the BSA category that year was stacked with great people (Nyong’o, Lawrence, Roberts, Squibb, Hawkins) and Lawrence should have won thanks to Lupita’s more beloved film. Again, August: Osage County is a fun film to watch and it’s not bad as y’all seem. That’s it.

    This must be one of the most embarrassing and craziest things. But saying things like that is insane and an insult to other astonishing male performances we had this decade.

    People are out here ready to call it the best male performance of all time and haven’t seen a movie made before 2010.

    It’s posts like these that make me wonder what’s even the point of this thread. I don’t mind people voicing their disagreement but dismissing and disparaging others’ opinions is messed up. This condescending behaviour isn’t necessary.

    Jeremy Renner was way better than Bradley Cooper in American Hustle. Idk why Bradley was nominated for that stupid role. Is it because he has a bigger role than Renner? Ghad, he was just shouting and complaining in that movie.

    I just shared my opinion. Isn’t what this thread is all about?! Like I said I did like Chalamet performance and if Oldman had won in 2012 (which he should, if Fassbender hadn’t been snubbed), perhaps I would have Rooted for him. But I just feel like since he became this HUGE star (thanks to the movie), fans completely went nuts for him and even say he gave the best performance of the decade. I Mean… C’mon!!! Yes he was great, but don’t exaggerate.

    The Academy fucked up by awarding Lawrence and Stone so soon. I know voters usually choose with their dongs but things would be so much better by having them as competitive with mother! and The Favourite

    You know AMPAS, these actresses are not fruit flies. They are not dying like in their 20s (hours, years)

    Horrible

    Speaking of Lawrence, that year’s best actress race was the weirdest one in recent years. I was assuming she would win the whole season because she won a fair amount of critics’ awards. Then Chastain would come out of nowhere to win a BFCA. Then my faith was reassured when she won the SAG. Then came nomination day, Queenzhane Wallis (I don’t remember her name) was nominated out of everybody’s expectation while Marion Cottilard and Helen Mirren had been nominated elsewhere. Then, again Emmanuelle Riva just came out of nowhere and won BAFTA and I was like, Jen girl your Oscar chance was doomed! But she won anyways and I think she is the only one to ever win best actress with a SAG+GG. If Riva had won GG instead, J Law would be the first and the only to beat that deadly GG+BAFTA combo.

    But that’s wasn’t a very competitive year tbh, and JLaw got lucky. What’s weird is Emma Stone made a clean sweep in a super competitive year!
