Merrit Weaver is so brilliant and the fact that her follow up to this is parts written by Noah Baumbach and Phoebe Waller-Bridge has me ecstatic beyond belief.October 11, 2019 at 7:40 am #1203131973
Just noticed that Mike O’Malley got moved to supporting and am devastated – he should have been winning! This really is where some of these rules are ridiculous as he was credited as guest in 5/6 seasons and he only appeared in 8/22 episodes of the season he was credited as a regular. I’ve mostly stayed out of this conversation until now even though I was frustrated like others but cases like this one really need to be highlighted for future. The rule should have been something like they are placed where they were nominated unless they were a regular for more than one season of the shows’ run or something.
oh my gosh, I’m fuming. This rule sucksOctober 10, 2019 at 10:57 pm #1203131646
Saw this again today with friends to double check my opinion and yeah this movie just isn’t good. Philips and Phoenix are not to blame, it is entirely the lazy and uninspired screenplay. With adapted screenplay being so weak this year I hope this stays far from a nomination.October 10, 2019 at 10:51 pm #1203131644
And one of the biggest reasons for this is that their isn’t any / very few roles of substance for actresses in their 40s nevermind non-white performers. Jennifer Hudson won a Oscar and her first role afterwards was as Carrie Bradshaw’s maid. The best part Octavia Spencer had for years after her Oscar win was a recurring role on a CBS sitcom (Mom) and a mother role in the smallest of indies (Fruitvale Station).
I think this is in line with the argument I agree with that awards shows (mostly) are not the problem, but the lack of opportunity is. When actors of color are given the part, award shows will recognize them, i.e. Jharrel Jerome, Sterling K Brown x2, Billy Porter, Regina King, Thandie Newton etc. The issue is with the lack of parts and opportunities offered to these actors. The year of the #OscarsSoWhite scandal the only snubbed contender of color (according to the GD odds) was Idris Elba. Granted, this was a large snub, but it should also be noted Elba was in a Netflix movie before Netflix was Netflix at the Oscars. Otherwise, the only top-10 contender of color in the odds was Will Smith for Concussion, for which he only hit the Globes.
Point is, I think blaming award shows for having mostly white winners is missing the larger point. To get awards, actors need opportunity. Nonetheless, at the Oscars we need another Black actress winner fucking yesterday.October 10, 2019 at 5:01 pm #1203131318
I have to agree. If Glenn and Gaga can tie when we all thought Glenn was the epitome of critics favourite then, Adam and Joaquin tying at critics choice is a real possibility
Close was far from the epitome of a critics favorite. That was Colman, then Collette.October 10, 2019 at 4:39 pm #1203131278
Pitch Perfect 1-2, but 3 is too shittyOctober 10, 2019 at 4:23 pm #1203131269
I’ve seen Joker yesterday and I think that Joaquin Phoenix gave a good performance, maybe even worthy of a nomination. However,I think that no actor should ever win for following that screenplay. I’m sorry, it may not be fair, but even though Joaquin was giving his best I couldn’t fully take him seriously because of what he was saying. I’m pretty sure Adam Driver is winning anyway so I’m not stressed about it.
Facts. Joaquin did the best he could but the script was too damn weak for it to be any type of phenomenal performance like people suggest.October 10, 2019 at 4:17 pm #1203131261
Years and Years made literally no noise in the US… it wont be a factor at all at Globes or EmmysOctober 10, 2019 at 10:39 am #1203130888
That looks just outstandingOctober 10, 2019 at 5:46 am #1203130538
I am predicting a snub for Dern, they can go to Kaitlyn Dever, if they really embrace Unbelievable, they can also go back to Yvonne Strahovski or to J. Smith-Cameron for Succession, the possibilities are infinite.
or Holly Hunter- maybe they want to make it up to her after snubbing her for the Big Sick and ruining her trajectoryOctober 9, 2019 at 9:46 am #1203129436
He’s very charming as Greg but I still think McFayden and Culkin would be (quite far) ahead.
Now Culkin is on Ellen too. That makes Fallon, Meyers, and Ellen all in the last few weeks- he’s everywhere. Make’s me think he’s the biggest S. actor player for next year, especially because (maybe just to me) Tom hasn’t popped this season like he did the last. I’m assuming their pushing Culkin so much because he’s the most familiar face and I get the sense Strong might be a little awkward, plus Cox is on broadway. Would love to see Snook get in there (obviously) but she’s Australian so it would take significantly more effort.October 9, 2019 at 7:20 am #1203129153
This show is brilliant and one of the funniest on tv. I need voice over Emmys for Maya and Nick like yesterday. With the way the TV Academy seems to only choose established programs for animated series, I could see this winning for season 4 or 5.October 9, 2019 at 7:18 am #1203129148
Not having GOT predicted feels crazy- but maybe the actor support is straight up unequal to that of other shows…plus the final season momentum feels halted. I could replace Stranger Things with it but Stranger Thing’s track record is frankly quite stronger. Ugh.October 8, 2019 at 1:26 pm #1203128056
Most of the praise for the film has gone to Driver and Dern.
This is really funny because in most reviews Dern gets at most a sentence of praise and Johannson and Driver are praised fairly equally. If anyone can find a credible review that praises Driver significantly more than ScarJo please include it because that’s not what I’m reading.
