    Little Women should have won Best Screenplay and is one of the best film of 2019

    This is fairly popular opinion.

    The Impossible was a terrific film and should have made the Best Picture line up in 2012

    Fences was mediocre.

    I think there’s genuine enjoyment to be had in it when you accept that it’s just a slightly more cinematic recording of the play, but as a movie, it just didn’t translate well.

    Notes on a Scandal was better than all of the Best Picture nominees that year.

    While they’re both great performances and certainly not bad nominees, I wouldn’t have nominated either John Travolta for Pulp Fiction or Leonardo DiCaprio for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

    To me, they fall into a similar camp where they’re a lot of fun and have a multitude of excellent movements, but both were nominated at the expense of other actors who were doing more challenging work with more depth going on.

    Jojo Rabbit was silly and massively overrated

    Also, Bohemian Rhapsody was better than Rocketman.

    I low-key agree, Bohemian Rhapsody was bad (imo) but Rocketman was just so so incredibly boring and horribly paced.

    Bad > Boring

    I’d go the other direction and say that DiCaprio’s turn was the most challenging acting work that was nominated at the 2020 Oscars.

    FYC:

    Lead Actor: Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round)

    Supporting Actress: Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm)

    Supporting Actor: Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

    Mission Impossible : Fallout should have been nominated in Picture, Cinematography and Adapted Screenplay.

    As was Volver, IMO. This may be an unpopular opinion but I think Volver is Almodovar’s best film.

    Re: Paddington 2, totally agree. It was one of the best films that year and deserved Oscar nominations, especially for Hugh Grant who I would have probably given the Oscar to.

    Re:Fences, like most play adaptations, this one really requires the energy and the presence of the stage. The impact of plays are how the presence and energy of the actors mixed with the direction and writing work to really knock the audience over. Apparently, Denzel and Viola were able to do that on stage, but once it got translated onto film, it lost that. Some times plays work well in translations because the added intimacy of film help the material, but other times, it simply doesn’t make up for the power that was lost when you see it live. Also, I read James Earl Jones was such a dominating and commanding figure when he did the play that Denzel seemed small in comparison.

    I agree with that except for Babel

    Well Denzel won the Tony too, so he couldn’t have been that small lol
