It’s not an obsession. he was in the movies that ended up nominated and were AMPAS thing. 2 DOR movies, 1 Eastwood, 1 self-directed based on a classic. No mystery. Jake isn’t that consistent with his career choices and the closest he came to a nom was Nightcrawler that wasn’t an AMPAS thing in the end. It was too small and he was an also-run only so the most vulnerable type of nominee. And he missed because American Sniper was too big to ignore. No mystery just how AMPAS minds work. What was Jake’s last attempt at awards, that double amputee movie? Desperate. Cooper’s campaigning for ASIB (director) may have been desperate but his acting choices are not.
Nightcrawler is too small yet Nomadland just won BP.April 30, 2021 at 9:53 am #1204236258

The Irishman would have won at 7 or 8 oscars if it came out in 2020 including picture and director. What a shame!April 29, 2021 at 2:26 am #1204234509
2014 Oscars Ceremony was the best one. It was also happens to be the first time I watched Oscars partly the reason for me to fall in love. I mean Ellen hosted that year she did a fantastic job by not being political yet being funny and entertaining. I mean she made Meryl Julia eat Pizza and that iconic selfie that literally broke the internet. Even with the nominees so star studded yet so diverse and winners were too. It also was the last most watched ceremony. When can we have another one like this. Are the academy and producers never trying at all?. I mean looks like they have forgotten what the show used to be like few years back.
The political speeches are so annoying. Kaluuya’s speech is one of the worst speeches I’ve ever heard, telling the audience what they need to do just because he played Fred Hampton in a film was so cringy I had to mute. If these people could keep things short and sweet and the films have a rewatchablility factor like Captain Philips, The Wolf of Wallstreet and American Hustle and not Nomadland, The Father and Minari the viewership would go back up. How Nomadland is Best Picture winner is embarrassing to me, If House of Gucci and Lady Gaga are up for multiple oscars next year, the viewership will jump again.April 27, 2021 at 2:02 am #1204230972
Dern would have still won. All Ron Howard had to do was make Hillbilly Elegy an OK film and Close would have won. He blew it!April 26, 2021 at 9:11 am #1204229034
The fact that McDormand has three more acting oscars than Glenn Close even though Close is ten times the actor is a travesty and no, she should not have three Oscars.April 25, 2021 at 10:32 am #1204221440
Clearly Dog Day Afternoon!
Special considerations to Frankie & Johnny.April 18, 2021 at 2:04 am #1204206834
If Margot Robbie doesn’t get in for Amsterdam, then she could get nominated for Babylon and win an Oscar for that movie. She’s popular and well-liked in the industry. It’s only a matter of time.
Or maybe she doesnt win at all. Why the desperation to award her an Oscar? More deserving actresses out there with contending films.April 17, 2021 at 10:28 am #1204205346
More complaints coming out about the gucci movie from family members. Not an absolute death knoll but definitely warning bells. I doubt that Katy Bates gets nominated for a judy blume book that has little to do with parent kid interactions

Roma, the film that should have won Best Picture that year and I’m not saying that just because I’m Mexican but it really is an amazing and beautiful film. At least BAFTA got it right. The Irishman was extremely long and boring. Mank had great cinematography and production design but it was boring as well. Marriage Story was decent but there were definitely better films that year. The Trial of the Chicago 7 is alright but it’s definitely over the top and overrated.
The Irishman was too long and boring yet you pick Roma, an overlong snoozefest? Lol!March 20, 2021 at 1:19 am #1204146456
<p style=”text-align: left;”>Obviously The Irishman. There have been many amazing Netflix originals but the Irishman is the only masterpiece! Those saying Roma probably haven’t even seen it again since the Oscars two years but there is nothing to see. The most overrated film until Nomadland came along.</p>March 17, 2021 at 4:11 pm #1204141689
Don’t look up is not even Oscar materiel lol i don’t get why its been in everybody’s Oscar prediction Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Lawrence aren’t its a political satire Adam McKay comedy movie about 2 astronauts trying o save the world sound like a golden globes thing.
If Palm Springs starred DiCaprio and JLaw and delivered even worse performances than Milioti and Samberg it would probably be the front runner for Best Picture. The academy is full of lazy name-checks.
