I strongly prefer “The Hobbit” series to “The Lord of the Rings,” even though LOTR won a ton of awards. “The Hobbit” was considered by some to be a cash grab by extending a single volume novel to three movies, but everything is a cash grab nowadays. I’m not a fan of Orcs or zombies, one dimensional villains that are massive in number but that are just killed easily and disappear. That’s why I never got into “The Walking Dead” or zombie themed shows or movies. I thought the Benedict Cumberbatch English speaking dragon Smaug was an amazing villain. The stories and characters are more interesting. The third Hobbit movie felt a little weaker than the first two though.
Also, for the 1997 Oscars, I would have given Lead Actor to Peter Fonda, Lead Actress to Judi Dench, and Supporting Actress to Gloria Stuart.March 24, 2020 at 11:55 pm #1203393343
Babel did not deserve Picture, Director or Screenplay nominations at the Oscars.March 25, 2020 at 9:29 am #1203393823
Renée Zellweger deserved her 2nd Oscar.
That shouldn’t be unpopular considering her category competitors. Outside of Alfre Woodard nobody from that season was robbed of proper recognition.March 25, 2020 at 10:03 am #1203393861

I agree that he’s amazing, but his work in Chinatown isn’t even close to what Pacino did in Godfather Part II that year.
I think it depends on which film you prefer, although either would’ve been a better choice than the guy who unfairly replaced Gene Hackman.March 25, 2020 at 10:21 am #1203393888
Out of the nominees, Renee wasn’t a bad choice but there are plenty of actresses including Saoirse who was nominated that deserved it more than her.

Johansson, Theron, and Ronan deserved it waaay more than ZellwegerMarch 25, 2020 at 11:00 am #1203393955
renee’s win in itself was fine, one of the less offensive ones this decade, but it’s only fair that second wins are to be put under the microscope a little bitMarch 25, 2020 at 11:52 am #1203394092
Charlize Theron should’ve been nominated for Mad Max: Fury Road instead of Bombshell.
