Ha! And there it goes and wins NBR lol.
As usual, I’m in the minority here, finding Da 5 Bloods to be more on par with Lee’s recent work Chi-Raq and better than BlacKkKlansman. Hell, if I put First Cow aside, it’s the best of the top contenders this season.January 26, 2021 at 10:00 am #1204002850
I think I find it strange that people are still low on Da 5 Bloods. It’s clear that this is a repeat of two years ago with BlacKkKlansman: summer release that people are unsure of, but ultimately barrels its way through the season to the end. It’s getting in, and will possibly even break into director.January 24, 2021 at 3:33 pm #1203999530
Y’all…I promise you that these studios do not need you to come onto Jeff Bezos’ internet and defend their films from cinema critics. The solution to misogyny is not creating more female superheroes with a background in the armed services and then paying billions of dollars to see them destroy a new city around the globe.
We know that the studios pander to both the liberal bastardization of identity politics *and* the phenomenon of male fan-ownership of these comic/tentpole properties. Both of these camps will thus naturally balk at any sort of criticism, especially from the “professional class,” because they see it as a personal attack. Kyle Smith isn’t attacking you or your children lol, he’s recognizing that, finally, the critical class managing to judge a massive studio picture in the negative, despite most of their kind having been sold out to the studio dollar long ago.January 23, 2021 at 3:55 pm #1203998027
Cool to see Possessor take screenplay honors. Also, runner-up Demon Slayer!January 23, 2021 at 2:10 pm #1203997924
Truly don’t understand the hatred this performance receives. Weaver breathes life into the character as best she can. She’s not even last in the category that year for me. I won’t ever get over anger for competent performances that get attention over loud performances that suck lolJanuary 20, 2021 at 1:07 am #1203992727
I think you’re absolutely right, I just wish I knew why. It’s aggravating in a year that was actually pretty great for film. Before the season started I was mildly optimistic that the insanity of 2020 would inspire more diversity of choices than usual; instead we’re getting the opposite, with more consensus than normal.
I never get what I want lol.January 19, 2021 at 10:00 pm #1203992622
What a weird year…my brain says Colman, my heart says Aparicio. The last two are pretty interchangeable. Close gave me about half of what I needed out of that performance, and Gaga gave me what I needed in one sense, and didn’t in another lol.
Personally, I wish it looked like this:
1. Kim Min-hee, The Day After
2. Juliette Binoche, Let the Sunshine In
3. Regina Hall, Support the Girls
4. Emily Browning, Golden Exits
5. either Helena Howard in Madeline’s Madeline or Isabelle Huppert in Mrs. HydeJanuary 19, 2021 at 9:30 pm #1203992560
Ok i keep seeing this so let me ask: Are critics groups supposed to nominate something they don’t think is worthy of nominating just t0 be edgy in a year where a bunch of movies, that would probably be big players in at least some categories, were delayed?
Y’all keep complaining but what are they supposed to nominate exactly? lmao.
I promise you there is more to the world of cinema than whatever the four Hollywood studios and their subsidiaries are producing in a given year.January 19, 2021 at 8:15 pm #1203992461
The problem is, who gets to decide what counts as a quality submission? The original musical category I think is activated as soon as there are a certain number of eligible candidates, regardless of quality. Even that hasn’t happened for over twenty years.
I would hope for an expansive and diverse panel that would determine eligibility, but yeah, I guess the Music Branch Executive Committee isn’t necessarily looking at the quality of submissions. I must have misremembered that.
If I felt up to it, I might mount an argument about the non-necessity of this category, but honestly I prefer to see things like The Wind Rises get noms rather than not haha, even if the expense is also nominating Ralph Breaks the Internet sometimes.January 19, 2021 at 11:57 am #1203991716
Kikuchi should have won, but this was such an underwhelming lineup across the board…January 19, 2021 at 11:19 am #1203991612
Good lord lol. One of my least favorite categories strikes again!
Just treat this like Original Musical: only activate it when there’s a sufficient number of quality submissions.
Anyway, Demon Slayer for the win, I guess lolJanuary 17, 2021 at 4:35 pm #1203988629
Thank you, Philadelphia, for finally recognizing the screenplay for First Cow!January 15, 2021 at 1:58 pm #1203985428
Kyle MacLachlan, Sheryl Lee, Frank Silva, and Sherilyn Fenn.
