    Ke Huy Quan navigated transitions between universes and their respective versions much better than Yeoh.

    Because Yeoh is essentially playing 1 character going through every universe whereas Quan is playing 3 characters, each unaware of the other’s presence in the multiverse. Because of that the transitions are very prominent for Quan

    Tom Cruise receiving an acting Oscar nomination for Top Gun : Maverick would be unfortunate but he would honestly be more deserving than Austin Butler. The critical and industry acclaim behind the latter’s turn astounds me.

    FYC: Better Call Saul, The English and The Good Fight in all categories including Emily Blunt, Bob Odenkirk, Christine Baranski and Rhea Seehorn.

    Couldn’t agree more. Tbf it’s not his fault, he has no character to work with. His impression is great, but a cruiseship Elvis impersonator’s impression is also great, probably. A genuinely fantastic performance would require good writing.

    For Your Consideration:
    The Banshees of Inisherin in ALL categories, including:
    - Best Picture
    - Best Director
    - Best Actor (Colin Farrell)
    - Best Supporting Actor (Brendan Gleeson)
    - Best Supporting Actor (Barry Keoghan)
    - Best Supporting Actress (Kerry Condon)
    - Best Supporting Actress (Sheila Flitton)
    - Best Original Screenplay

    Austin Butler is a good Elvis Presley, but there have been thousands of good Elvis Presleys.

    Ke Huy Quan does NOT deserve to win based on performance alone. It simply isn’t on that level. I feel that his supporters almost unanimously love the film as a whole, and/or buy into the narrative surrounding his ‘comeback’. I’ve never encountered someone who doesn’t like EEAAO, but still thinks he gives a winning performance irrespective of their opinion of the film as a whole.

    Don’t come for me.

    I’d be really curious to see an age breakdown of how people assess Butler’s performance. I strongly suspect that viewers old enough to have actually seen Elvis perform live think Butler is good, but aren’t blown away by him nearly as much as those who were born after his death.

    Michelle Yeoh doesn’t deserve an Oscar nomination for Everything Everywhere All At Once. Her role/performance isn’t good and the film is even worse. People are just excited for her because she isn’t white or young and also the fact that her role isn’t a typical Oscar role

    Danielle Deadwyler gave the performance of the year.

    Very unpopular opinion: It’s possible to root for people of color because of their talent and execution and not the diversity they would bring to the Oscars, which would also be very valid.

    I agree but I think I liked the movie a little bit more than you did. EEAAO is a Sci-Fi. EEAAO is not an “Oscar movie”. I think all people are Overrating the movie because it’s NOT a typical(boring) indie
