I’m keeping Paul Mescal in my predictions. I know he’s not a lock, but he should be and he has a good chance of being nominated. He’s my ride or die prediction.November 2, 2022 at 8:23 am #1205139547
I couldn’t agree more. I just saw Banshees on Monday night and look Brandon is great. He does what’s asked of him for the role, but Barry Keoghan is the man that deserves this nomination for best supporting actor. Not only is he legitimately a supporting actor in the movie, but he’s also magnificent in each scene. He and Condon just dominate this movie.
Gleeson has had a great career worthy of recognition but he’s about to steal Keoghan’s spot.November 2, 2022 at 8:06 am #1205139534
I also saw this on Saturday at the Varsity in Toronto. Fantastic film. One of my two favourite films this year. The theatre was relatively packed for such a small film. I hope it gets a wider release.October 29, 2022 at 7:15 pm #1205136688
I just saw Aftersun and it’s such a stunning film. Mescal and the little girl were so fantastic together. It’s too bad this is going to fly under the Oscar’s radar.October 13, 2022 at 4:46 am #1205117772
I’m going to stick with the people view as brilliant actors vs the movie star crowd.
i cannot stand Adam Driver and have no idea why people think he kills it on screen. And every movie. He’s just a deeply unpleasant person who has walked on set.
Chalamet is shockingly overrated. I think he was great in one role (his first ) and after that yikes. Just good PR I guess.
Gretta Gerwig for her acting and directing.
i have a soft spot for Paul Dano but thought he was really subpar in the Batman and did not get the adulation. He was out acted by Keoghan who had a cut scene lol. ( And apparently it was cut because it was much better than a similar scene that Dano had)
Basically any older prestige actor that Hollywood thinks is irreplaceable.October 21, 2021 at 5:41 am #1204529685
Which is why a number of pundits debated in private but couldn’t tweet that (WoC) lead didn’t have what it takes to carry a movie, that (diverse cast) acting was bad, that (WoC) director helmed a movie where action was nonsensical and pointless, exposition crushingly overwhelming, etc. They have to find a way around those problems and praise it anyhow. It’s mandated.
I’m going to set aside your absolutely insane ramblings of a reaction conspiracy and ignore the fact that Dune is likely to get more nominations than Eternals so your rage is unneeded.
But what the hell is with this racist and misogynistic take? This forum sure isn’t half as high brow as it thinks it is.October 20, 2021 at 4:34 pm #1204529059
I’m starting to think my tastes vary from Awards front runners (Belfast excluded) I’m excited to see Belfast, Macbeth and the Lost Daughter and even Eternals ( I know that’s not getting nominated)
Licorice Pizza and Nightmare alley just look like run of the mill oscar bait movies that just don’t interest me, I don’t mind if they get nominated but I’ll likely skip them.
I saw Dune in September and yes it was beautiful, but I’ll be honest I really didn’t like it. I didn’t care about any of the characters or what happened to them and couldn’t wait for it to be over but my friend who saw it with me was a huge Dune fan and he loved it, but I loved the Green Knight and it looks like I was the only one lol. I don’t think I’m going to do well with my predictions because i can’t figure out what the voting body considers awards worthy these days.August 1, 2021 at 7:59 am #1204374908
What is the general consensus of the Green Knight’s odds at the Oscars? I just saw that film and I loved it. It took me completely by surprise and I personally thought everything was pitch perfect.
I can never figure out what the Oscars really dig or not.
Is it possible it might get acting nods. I don’t even see the movie in the prediction centre. So I’m guessing it’s not on anyone’s radar.July 22, 2021 at 7:06 pm #1204358585
I’m Confused by the “100 % going to be a hit ” Dune mentality here.
I’m very happy the fans of Dune are happy with the trailers and every fandom deserves to get a a good film or series but for me the trailers were just not to my taste and I’m going to sit this movie out.
This is a genuine question why is everyone so sure it’s going to be a massive critical and financial hit? I don’t know if you be so certain in non pandemic times let alone now.February 24, 2021 at 5:29 pm #1204059760
I can see Kevin Feige saving Emilia Clarke. She seems like a franchise actress. I do love her though.
Apparently Emilia Clarke auditioned for two Marvel roles including the recent Black Widow movie. She lost out to Florence Pugh. I don’t think Kevin Feige is interested. Maybe the DC franchise will cast her in something.February 24, 2021 at 4:40 pm #1204059679
Emilia Clarke hasn’t had much success and has a limited acting range. I think she peaked with GOT. Kit needs to do well with Eternals.
The only two of the younger actors I see having a successful post GOT career are Richard Madden and Alfie Allen maybe Dean Charles Chapman. They seem to be the only ones with a large body of work.September 26, 2020 at 2:59 pm #1203736936
Pride (2014) was better than half the best picture nominees at the 2015 Oscars, and deserved at least Screenplay, Actor (Ben Schnetzer), and Supporting Actor (Bill Nighy) nominations.
I’m still surprised Pride flew under the radar. Schnetzer and Nighy were great, so were George MacKay and Andrew Scott. Seems like exactly the type of that should have captured Hollywood’s attention but maybe it was too niche.July 28, 2020 at 9:11 am #1203607892
I’m pleased as punch that Shira Hass was nominated and I’m just so happy Paul Mescal was recognized. He deserves it. The only man having a stellar 2020.
A writing nomination for Sally Rooney too.July 22, 2020 at 7:53 pm #1203596824
I’m new to following the Emmys but I could not believe Richard Madden was snubbed last year when his show was nominated. He was in every scene.
I’m surprised to read Nick Offerman and D’arcy Carden haven’t been nominated. I hope they are one year.Not now
