You & the Fred Gregory account joined August 9th & 10th in 2017 and didn’t start reposting until a couple days ago. Ironically both specifically targeted my posts as if each were run by a singular member with a not so subtle vendetta. Shall I continue spilling tea or nah? I think so….
Woman you’re toxic, really isn’t surprising that people would call you out on it. I on the other hand lurk. Good job on the meticulous research. bye nowAugust 8, 2021 at 2:40 pm #1204387382
5. I only rate filmmakers (male or female) if they are consistent. For example, I have Barbie in the top 10 of my 2024 predictions because Greta Gerwig has proven herself to be consistent. So I don’t rate Campion. Sorry not sorry.
You basically just outed yourself as a film bro lol. Kathryn Bigelow & Greta Gerwig both have 3 noms for 2 films, Sofia Coppola has 3 for 1. And they’re all American. Jane Campion is a New Zealander, it’s a marvel The Piano hit at all because the only NZ director most people know & who is more successful is Peter Jackson.
Doesn’t help to be “gender-blind”. Women have a harder time at this whole thing or haven’t you noticed.August 8, 2021 at 1:49 pm #1204387248
You could’ve saved yourself 494 words & 2,797 characters by just suggesting some of Campion’s films then moving on. Your response reeks of pretentious arrogance. Not everyone will share the same insight or knowledge as you. Educate instead of lecturing.
lol wut, you spend all your time jumping down people’s throats over a single word and you calculated the words & characters just to be an a-hole, pretty sure your petty vendettas look much worseAugust 8, 2021 at 1:45 pm #1204387237
I guess, but would most people really vote for a generic romcom starring a Marvel actress over a movie about the freaking Oslo Accords (which I coincidentally learned more about in college today)? And it’s not like one is clearly better than the other (they’re both middling IMO).
Marvel actress? Her character in the MCU has barely been in much. Tessa Thompson is known for far more than Marvel.August 7, 2021 at 6:39 pm #1204386394
For a win or a nomination? Cause she’s fully viable for a nom. In case you think she can win, explain cause I’m curious
Both. I’ve heard a lot about the film, and she’s not discussed enough for a nomination because people on here are so focused on the US/UK actresses. It’s her first lead collaboration with her favorite collaborator in quite some time. It’s primed to take advantage of her age & particular status in the industry since her last nomination. And the fall festivals will be giving it quite the push because while The Power of the Dog in particular seems ready to cement early frontrunner, Cruz will snatch the Volpi from Dunst. I think we should get ready for at least 3 or 4 very strong contenders from TIFF/Venezia/Telluride who will quickly become locks: Colman, Cruz, Dunst, maybe Stewart.August 7, 2021 at 6:30 pm #1204386377
Comedy is a genre, hun. Slapstick comedy in mockumentary style and thus “niche” for the Academy. But since you clearly missed the “Bakalova isn’t in an Oscar film” war of last year, here’s some brownie points for watching TGK and missing the subtext: 😉
By all means do go off, what’s the fun of GD without some heavy sprinklings of “willful misunderstanding”: 😉August 7, 2021 at 6:18 pm #1204386362
Parasite & Shape of Water are way more accessible, straight forward, narratives compared to The Green Knight lol
“Accessible, straightforward” has nothing to do with it. They’re genre films with niche appeal that don’t fit the “stilted drama” stereotype of an “Oscar film”. Again, TGK probably won’t hit in BP (who knows though), but there have been a lot more unconventional films where performances have gotten in. But ma’am you keep arguing with yourself, this is my stop.August 7, 2021 at 6:14 pm #1204386355
The Green Knight has plenty of “political and social appeal”. You gotta watch it. It probably is too arthouse but we’re talking about Dev Patel here. Performances in weirder films have gotten in recently.August 7, 2021 at 6:12 pm #1204386352
Subsequent Moviefilm is not an inaccessible arthouse film lol It was a buzzed comedy sequel with political & social appeal. The Borat character was also familiarized with the general public.
Yeah but Borat itself couldn’t come to the Academy with a bargepole. Neither did Sacha Baron Cohen himself until just this year. This whole “Oscar film” business is very outdated. Seems like when people use that phrase they’re still stuck in the early aughts. Films like Gosford Park and The Pianist seem to fit into that, but now we’ve had freaking Parasite and A Shape of Water win. These ideas about “Oscar films” are always a little outdated.August 7, 2021 at 6:06 pm #1204386340
Yeah I said it. Nothing else nominated deserved to win except films that didn’t even make it close. The best films were Melancholia or Take Shelter. Young Adult and We Need to Talk About Kevin are also great but of course, neither came close.
No, not The Tree of Life because it is just a collage, it really annoys me when people compare it to 2001: A Space Odyssey. Clearly they need to rewatch both.
