This decade is about to end and no movie has topped 2013’s Her.October 9, 2019 at 7:54 pm #1203130197
2010-2019 was a better film decade than the 2000’sOctober 9, 2019 at 7:59 pm #1203130205
The power that these three performances alone had *whew*:
Girl yes but you’re forgetting the most iconic one:
Portman deserved for sure but I still maintain to this day that she should have tied with Williams, that performance shook me to my core. It was so lived-in and yet her interpretation of that character was resoundingly unique. The fact that she offered so many new perspectives on heartbreak (a well-tread topic in film), I’m shook to this day. I’m still pissed that SAG and BAFTA snubbed her that year.October 9, 2019 at 8:03 pm #1203130207

I’ll extend and say that the 2007-08 season was the only quality year for mainstream Hollywood out of the 2000’s. No Country For Old Men, Atonement, Juno, There Will Be Blood in the BP category and all four acting winners being iconic? Nothing came close to topping it, the rest of the years were pretty weak even if there were some good winners.October 9, 2019 at 8:17 pm #1203130221

yeah, this season was pretty much flawless
I was just doing my 2010’s decade end list and realized it was much better than the underwhelming 00’s. 2010’s truly were an upgrade
The 70’s remain unbothered thoOctober 9, 2019 at 9:50 pm #1203130294
Michelle in BV > Natalie in BS, all day every day.October 9, 2019 at 10:25 pm #1203130307
Speaking of Atonement…
Atonement > No Country for Old Man
Should have won Best Picture that year and Keira Knightley and James McAvoy should have been nominated too.October 9, 2019 at 10:33 pm #1203130313
Honey, Mila Kunis was nothing special in Black Swan. Probably one of the most overrated performances of the decade. If someone was overlooked in Black Swan, was Barbara Hershey. Who also should have been an Oscar nominee by then for Hannah and Her Sisters, but the academy decided to go for the wrong choice by picking Dianne Wiest, mistake they made twice.
Dianne Wiest slander! How dare you?
Kathy Bates for Best Supporting Actress (Richard Jewell)October 10, 2019 at 10:41 am #1203130893
The Wrong Turn horror movies and the nightmare on elm street series are 1000x better than the the Friday the thirteenth ones.October 10, 2019 at 7:15 pm #1203131439
I forgot HOW INCREDIBLY DESERVING the winners were from 2007. Holy s***
Day-Lewis, Cotillard, Swinton, and Bardem. No one else was more deserving of those awards.October 10, 2019 at 7:38 pm #1203131468
I don’t really care for Swinton’s win. Ronan or Ryan would have been a better choice. Haven’t seen Blanchett.October 10, 2019 at 7:55 pm #1203131480
I don’t know if it is unpopular or not around these parts, but Titanic is one of my favorite Best Picture winners, and one of my favorite films period. I think it is a masterclass in epic filmmaking: great set design, beautiful costumes, a memorable and emotional score, groundbreaking visual effects that still hold up, two beautiful and talented lead performers, a great performance from a actress from classic Hollywood, a ending that sticks with you. And it is a film that despite its length never manages to feel long.
All the criticisms of it fall flat for me. I just see it as perfect filmmaking.
