    Furry hot take: The furries in Fantastic Mr. Fox are hotter than the ones in Zootopia. George Clooney fox in particular I wouldn’t mind spending some time in a foxhole with 😉

    Best Actor: 1975 -Jack Nicholson (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest): WINNER -Walter Matthau (The Sunshine Boys) -Al Pacino (Dog Day Afternoon) -Maximilian Schell (The Man in the Glass Booth) -James Whitmore (Give ’em Hell, Harry!)

    Hard agree. Al Pacino in Dog Day Afternoon not winning an Oscar would be an outrage in a lesser year against lesser performers, but Jack Nicholson is also a great pick.

    Alexandre Desplat’s work in the Harry Potter franchise is as good as John Williams’, and both of them deserved Oscar wins for it.

    James Newton Howard’s score for The Hunger Games Series was better than most of the Oscar nominees in favor of which it was snubbed.

    Agreed. Nicholson may have been slightly better, but not by a whole lot. Unfortunately, only one of them could win. I think they made the right choice.

    While talking about those two, I think Nicholson is nowhere near as good in Chinatown as Pacino is in Godfather Part II. Nicholson beating him for the Globe may not be as bafflingly outrageous as Pacino losing the Oscar to Art Carney, but I still have no doubt Pacino deserved both, and the fact that he might’ve come in third place that year is troubling (I’m still guessing he was second)

    Not really an unpopular opinion, more like an undiscussed one, but anyways: Suspirium and Unmade should’ve both been nominated for Best Original Song this past year, while the latter should’ve swept the season. Love Shallow but Unmade is something of its own and made what could’ve been one of the most disgusting scenes of the year into one of the best of the year. It and Suspirium were completely robbed.

    Also got banned because...reasons? So, I guess ciao.

    The Farewell is top 3 movies of the decade, and Awkwafina deserves to win that Oscar.

    Glenn Close winning for that awful movie and that… below-average performance by her standards would have been insulting. The Academy made the right call.

    The one good call AMPAS made in the light of Green Bookkk, Bohemian Tragedy and Lice.

    Lice only won for makeup so not to upset about that though, just glad that’s what Amy doesn’t have her Oscar for.

    Oscars FYC:

    "Lamb" – International Feature and all categories

    "Summer of Soul" – Picture, Film Editing and Documentary Feature

    “The Green Knight” – in all categories

    Here goes two very unpopular opinions…

    Paulette Goddard would have been just as good as Vivian Leigh in Gone With The Wind and Liv Ullman would have been just as good as Meryl Streep in Sophie’s Choice.

    Both Oscar wins are legendary and the Academy could have not chosen better winners but I do believe that Goddard and Ullman would have been just as good.

    Come at me!!!
