Also wtf at that Sam Mendes nom? Fucking really?February 25, 2020 at 11:54 am #1203360197
Atrocious! There is really no defense for this. Terrible taste abound!
I was glass half-full on the nominations for 2019 alone, but I agree with you on these. This is such a basic, mainstream internet-approved list of noms.
Also who keeps voting 1917 in Editing? (It came 2nd below Parasite for 2019.) Whoever it is you’re not being clever doing so. Arrival was right there.February 25, 2020 at 11:55 am #1203360199
Performer of the Decade
don’t even care about the rest at this pointFebruary 25, 2020 at 12:00 pm #1203360208
So… no animated features this decade were good enough to warrant a nomination outside Best Animated Feature/Best Original Song?February 25, 2020 at 12:14 pm #1203360226
Kinda surprised but my top two choices for a bunch still are in there so 🙂 Bolding my FYC choices (all two of them lol)
Just my thoughts on a few catagories:
Best Picture is going to be interesting. Parasite vs La La Land I assume.
Beyond thrilled Cuaron got in for ROMA. (Please vote for him 🙂 )
Best Actress can’t go wrong….all worthy winners
Best Actor surprises me….did not expect to see Driver make the cut.
Best Supporting Actress….again you can’t go wrong. All worthy.
Best Supporting Actor I am going 110% for Pitt so please vote for him 🙂
Best Adapted Screenplay could be any of them and I’d be thrilled.
Best Original Screenplay I feel like is going to be Parasite
Ensemble of the Decade was tough. Once Upon A Time in Hollywood hopefully has a shot.
Performer of the Decade…..I mean for me its DiCaprio but I can make a case for almost all of them
Best Cinematography: I think its going to be one I didn’t vote for but i’m rooting for 1917
Best Costume Design: I’m voted for my fav three but I don’t think an of them is the winner.
The rest I can see any of them winning and would be happy 🙂February 25, 2020 at 12:32 pm #1203360244
Updated FYC, in light of nominations:
Inception: Picture, Director (Nolan), Original Screenplay, Score, and Visual Effects.
Arrival: Actress (Adams), Adapted Screenplay
Dunkirk: Film Editing, Sound
Lincoln: Actor (Day-Lewis)
Adam Driver, I guess: Performer of the decade

Okay nominations. I’m also sad at no JLaw in Actress for Silver Linings Playbook, which was is my favourite performance of hers. I agree that Saoirse probably vote split, but her performance in Lady Bird is one of my favourites ever. I’m not personally a massive fan of in La La Land (I actually liked Emma Stone better in Birdman), but I loved Brie’s performance in Room, so I’m probably the only one happy about that aha.
Edit: I’m not done my predictions, but I have Saoirse for performer of the decade.February 25, 2020 at 12:44 pm #1203360257
Cate Blanchett should easily win Best Actress but everyone on here would kill someone for Natalie Portman so that’s not happening.February 25, 2020 at 12:48 pm #1203360260
So… no animated features this decade were good enough to warrant a nomination outside Best Animated Feature/Best Original Song?
This. Two of my top five votes for Best Picture were animated films. Then again, only one of my picks on my nomination ballot actually got in.February 25, 2020 at 1:04 pm #1203360266
Lol at these nominations. There can still be great winners if all the best candidates win, but this is not happening.
The Act of Killing better win Documentary and I’ll be okay with the rest of it.February 25, 2020 at 1:09 pm #1203360271
Data from Goldderby publication. In the nomination totals, there’s 13 nominations unaccounted for; still, you can have an idea that there’s a big recency bias:
[ year – #films – #nominations ]
2010 – 5 – 15
2011 – 3 – 3
2012 – 8 – 10
2013 – 8 – 15
2014 – 8 – 21
2015 – 7 – 16
2016 – 10 – 30
2017 – 16 – 31
2018 – 18 – 29
2019 – 17 – 37
Obviously, 2019 has the most nominations. 2011 the less (1% of total nominations).
69% of the nominations (and 68% of the films nominated) are of the later half of the decade.
That’s just wrong.
