    Shoot me, but I don’t understand all this gushing over Laura Dern’s role in “Marriage Story.” As usual, she’s just portraying Laura Dern … again. Fifty years from now do you really believe that anyone will watch that “performance” and gasp, “Wow! Now THAT’s a great role!”?

    Joaquin Phoenix imo. But really so far all the performances I saw are at least good. No one so far on on the badness level on Rami Malek.

    I totally agree with you, Tom. I find Laura Dern’s performance overrated, too.

    Career Oscars have been a thing for a while now and that’s exactly what Derns is.

    The fact J-Lo was not nominated (who should of won imo) over Laura Dern getting a nomination for a role where she literally acts like EVERY single character she has ever played & is gonna win is a big YAWN

    The Irishman. Bah. So boring. And bad casting. And who thought using CGI to make really old actors look younger was a good idea? Their body movements and stiffness betray their true age. Scorsese has already made this movie before and it was better the first time (Goodfellas).

    “Joker” is by far the most overrated movie of the year and I’d say Joaquin’s performance is as well… Next up, “The Irishman” which really only deserved noms for Pesci and Pacino, but that’s it… Finally, I’ll add “The Two Popes”. The only interesting thing about that movie were the flashbacks to Pryce’s character and Pryce’s performance.

    I mean, it’s obviously well made, but The Irishman feels pretty overrated to me. It’s just another mob movie and this time they’ve cgi’d some faces. Joe Pesci’s is the only performance that even seems worthy of distinction.

    I love Laura Dern (and she deserves ALL the acclaim), but I agree here with “Marriage Story.” I actually thought her performance in “Little Women” was much better. She was so enduring with such little material in “Little Women.”

    Marriage Story and its leads. It’s so enjoyable that Dern is getting all the attention for her really small role while the overrated leads don’t.

    Little Women. It was a sturdy, serviceable adaptation with an outstanding cast… but I think the ’94 version had more soul (and a comparably outstanding cast).

    Quite. An underwhelming start to the decade. This category has mostly shined for timeless performances (Marcia Gay Harden, Mo’Nique, Patricia Arquette). I remain hopeful for Kathy Bates to pull off a Mark Rylance upset!
