    Maybe because Greta is an American director who was competing in an American show while Portrait of a Lady on Fire is a French film that was not even submitted to that same American show?

    And Greta was absolutely robbed. Considering the competition, she did a better work than all of the nominees.

    Greta Gerwig was not the best female director last year. She’s the most famous female director from last year, so people who didn’t see the works of Wang, Heller, Sciamma and so on just instantly point to her as the snub.

    She is indeed a great director, but people need to stop making her some kind of martyr.

    LOL, I have seen the work from all of them and the results are borderline mediocre. If I had to choose three female directed films to replace them, I would choose Little Women, I Was at Home, But and First Cow.

    And yes, Gerwig did a better work than Bong, and so did Scorsese.

    Here’s an unpopular opinion, Gerwig > Baumbach. His best work involved her as the star and co-writer. I know people are sick of her stans, and I totally get it, but I really do think she’s that good.

    To me Gerwig is ten times better than Baumbach. Like look at the dialogue for MS vs lady bird. But Bong was still the king last year

    Thank God the gimmicky bullshit 1917 didn’t win Picture and Directing, it’s been already awful the fact that Jojo Rabbit took home Screenplay.

    Glenn Close needs to play a villain again. I can see her in a remake of the Bette Davis classic The Nanny or her playing a woman imprisoned for killing her husband. Something dark.

    She is far too over-the-top in Sunset Boulevard.

    Brand new unpopular opinion: The best movie for Glenn Close to get an Oscar is a movie in which she plays herself  losing all 7 times. The pain, the hope, the screams, the drama… One Oscar scene can be when she reads the reviews for Hillbilly Elegy on Nov 10, 202o and she kills three people.

    To be fair, it’s a very over the top role, and she did it onstage, in which over the top roles have to be played even bigger than they are on film.

    Talking about musicals, Mamma Mia is awful.

    Michelle Pfeiffer’s best performances are in Married to the Mob and Batman Returns. Sorry.

    Robert Zemeckis is the worst American director currently working. He is more immature than ever, stunted by technological fetishism and a lack of earnest imagination. His films are mean-spirited, gimmicky, and vacuous. His 80’s run was great, and he made movies in the 90’s, but post-Polar Express? Into the trash.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best Picture: Wolfwalkers

    Best Animated Feature: Wolfwalkers
