    I know, right? Irishman cant even get DeNiro in. If anything, it would be Robbie in Once Upon a Time

    I don’t think there will be one this year but there are several I would want to see nominated on Monday: Dame Maggie Smith in Downton Abbey, John Lithgow in Bombshell, Shia LeBeouf and Noah Jupe in Honey Boy, just to name a few. I would also very much like to see Margot Robbie nominated for Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood instead of Bombshell, but I know that won’t happen!

    Timothee Chalamet for “Little Women” in supporting actor. If “Little Women” is really beloved by Oscar voters, he could slip in, barely.

    I thought he was superb. He’s the first Laurie ever in any of the six adaptations I have seen on film where the character is complex and interesting. I would love for Chalamet to sneak in with a nomination!

    Out of nowhere, you say?

    Noah Jupe – Best Supporting Actor in Ford v. Ferrari.

    Won’t happen, though.

    He was self-conscious and nervous the whole time.

    You didn’t find Bale complex and interesting?

    I would like to see Alfre Woodard (Clemency) be the out of nowhere nominee.

    Now that I have seen 1917 I so want it to be George MacKay, who is in every single scene in the movie and gives a stunning, superb, amazing performance!

    I said this when I posted a review of the film on its page, but I was actually very disappointed in Chalamet’s performance. I heard mixed things, but I figured I’d like him, likely because he sounds like a great pick for the part on paper. Instead, I thought he was the weak link in an otherwise great cast. He was obviously supposed to be a likable and charming heartthrob, but I thought his performance made Laurie seem more like a vain guy trying really hard to look cool. He’s got some good moments, he has genuine chemistry with Ronan and he’s good and legitimately funny from the moment he reunites with Jo onwards, but I don’t think it came together as a good performance. In fact the only part of Pugh’s otherwise great performance that I didn’t like was her chemistry with Chalamet. I never saw real sparks fly between them, but I still give credit to Pugh, cause I could see her interest in him, but Chalamet’s constantly over stoic delivery made it seem like he wasn’t interested in her, even though the writing clearly shows that he is. I’m really just not sure what happened here, this role seemed perfectly in his ballpark, but I just couldn’t get into him. I still like Chalamet, and he’s clearly extremely talented, but his Laurie felt more like Kyle from Lady Bird than Elio from Call Me by Your Name.
    If a supporting actor from Little Women were to get nominated, I think it should be Chris Cooper, who I found to be excellent. He brought a very warm and heartbreaking presence, and I felt like there was a lot of unsaid history and tragedy to his performance, likely because of the fact that Cooper was familiar with the source material where his past is described in more detail. He’s not in my top 5, but I wouldn’t be upset to seen him make it in.

    • Knives Out Best Picture
    • Best Director for Pain and Glory
    • Willem Dafoe returns for The Lighthouse, as summoned by my blood magic
    • Weathering With You or Promare in Animation, preventing another year of all-western mediocrity

    For Your Consideration:

    Best Picture: Parasite

    Cinematography for Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    At this point, I would be slightly surprised if Greta Gerwig gets in for Best Director.

    Knives Out for Best Picture

    I think Meryl Streep for Little Women shouldn’t be underestimated.

    Us for Best Score

    I think Willem Dafoe will definitely get in for Supporting Actor.

    Daniel Craig or Adam Sandler as the 5th Best Actor nominee somehow.

    Cinematography for Portrait of a Lady on Fire

    I would nominate “Portrait of a Lady on Fire” for best cinematography from the trailer alone. It looks gorgeous – I so want to see this film.
