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

    I wouldn’t say Adapted Screenplay, since the 2nd act was an incomprehensible mess. But Picture and Director and most of the tech categories for sure. And Tom Cruise deserved a nomination for Best Actor for nearly killing himself several times to give us all those amazing stunts.

    Jessica Chastain’s best lead performance is Miss Sloane but that year for Best Actress is so strong (not the oscar lineup) that idk if she would have made my 5 (she’s def on my top 8). I’m glad she got a Golden Globe nod at least.

    The fact that she only had two nomination is quite pathetic. She should’ve been nominated for A Most Violent Year and while Meryl’s performance in The Post was good, I’d like to see her being snubbed because of Chastain’s Molly Game. I hope The Eyes of Tammy Faye and her other projects will bring her closer to the trophy. Not only Oscar, but also Emmy (yes, Scenes from A Marriage and George & Tammy)

    The A Most Violent Year snub is still painful and she should have been competitive for the win too. She would have been a wonderful nominee for Molly’s Game. She probably was 6th in both which makes it even worse. She has some interesting projects in the future and I could definitely see her getting her moment and yes the Emmys too!

    Bill Murray is not nomination worthy for On The Rocks

    MI:F changed action films in my opinion. Everyone had to step their s**t up after that.

    It’s legitimately one of the best action movies ever created. How it didn’t get the same treatment as Fury Road ANYWHERE is honestly beyond me.

    Lead Actor: Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round)

    Supporting Actress: Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm)

    Supporting Actor: Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

    When it comes to award shows, they should cancel the SAG Awards and Critic’s Choice Awards for good. That is too many award shows. The Oscars, Golden Globes, and BAFTA awards are legendary. SAG doesn’t even have supporting categories for TV. That is BS!

    There really are too many award shows, but we really can’t do anything about groups who want to spend money (or who get TV contracts to put them on television) putting these awards on. There’s a whole Oscar precursor industry now.

    I had no idea Scenes from a Marriage was being remade by HBO. I’m looking forward to it, and I love the Ullman connection. Liv Ullman, star of the original series/film, directed Chastain in an adaptation of Miss Julie.

    I think Guild awards are meaningful. They just need to be schedule at a different time of the year so it doesn’t just serve as an Oscar purpose.

    Lowkey thought To Die For was kinda bad except for the acting. It feels like something that would have been fresh in the 90’s. But now… Nicole did as best as she could with that paper thin character.

    Pantheon of acting: Uta / Elizabeth / Richard / Sandy (Virginia Woolf), Bibi / Liv (Persona), Sandrine (La Ceremonie), Brie (Short Term 12), Jodie (Silence of the Lambs), Jodie (Killing Eve), Nicole (The Others), Eva (Penny Dreadful), Timothée (CMBYN), Lupita (Us)

    I always thought it was overrated. I thought Joaquin Phoenix, even back then, gave the best performance. I also liked Illeana Douglas a lot.

    Whilst it comes nowhere near my best picture lineup in my personal awards Bohemian Rhapsody was an ok film and Rami Malek deserved his win in that lineup (although I did prefer Dafoe and I had would have chucked out all the other nominees in the category and replaced them with Gyllenhaal, Hawke and Redford with the former two ahead of Malek in my personal awards).

    However whilst she wouldn’t have been in my personal awards (the performances of Blunt, Debicki, De Tavira, Foy, Robbie, Stone and Weisz were all just phenomenal that year) the best performance from the film comes from Lucy Boynton and not Malek.

    Random but I miss Thatcher and Hammad Asif. Lol. They were fun and they always spiced things up here.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    Emma Stone deserved to win over Natalie Portman and Isabelle Huppert.
