Asgaroth replied to the topic Who Will Become the 2nd Actress to Win Best Actress 3x in the forum Movies 7 months, 3 weeks ago
Nice meme poll-results lol.
Anyway, from the list only Streep and McDormand have reasonable chances. Hilary Swank could be because she’s still young but I think there’s this sort of “we’re done with you” feeling in the Academy towards her that would stop that from happening.
Because that would have lowered the chances of both Blanchett and Mara to win and the Academy “followed” the distributor’s suggestion or “instruction” of who should be considered for lead and who for supporting.
However, it’s not always the case that when 2 actors/actresses are both nominated in lead none of them ends up winning, as proven by…[Read more]
Asgaroth replied to the topic Will Leonardo DiCaprio equal Jack Nicholson's record of 12 Oscar nominations?? in the forum Movies 7 months, 3 weeks ago
He has had a fair share of under-performing movies under his belt, like J. Edgar, Revolutionary Road, Body of Lies and especially The Beach which was supposed to be a mega-hit after he became the king of the world in Titanic but couldn’t even gross 40 million in the US.
Asgaroth replied to the topic Which actor is going to join the 3-times winner club soon? in the forum Movies 7 months, 3 weeks ago
To be fair, that was almost like a filler nomination. Nobody cared about that movie and nobody expected him to be nominated for it, he just got there because the voters needed an acceptable replacement for Franco’s spot.

Do you think we’ll have another actor in the 3-times (or more) Oscar winner select club in the 2020s? If so, who?
Actors belonging to the “other” option in the poll:
– Reneé Zellweger
– Mahershala Ali
– Dustin Hoffman
– Gene Hackman
– Sally Field
– Jane Fonda
– Maggie Smith
– Jessica Lange
– Dianne Wiest
– Michael Caine
– Glenda Jackson
– Kevin…[Read more]
Kidman is by far the likeliest. I even believe it’s gonna happen sometime during the next 5-6 years. I would say Mirren too but she’s not really seeking to win another one and she’s just having fun at this point of her career.
Berry is a definite no.
But that would have constituted the most blatant case of category fraud win since Timothy…[Read more]
I won’t ever fathom how in the world could the score of Jurassic Park not be nominated in 1993. I mean, the Academy nominates Williams for every single musical note he composes and they couldn’t nominate him and the movie for one of his most iconic works? I know he also had Schindler’s that year, for which he won, but ignoring an equally…[Read more]
The Revenant was never, ever going to win BP under preferential ballot system. It was divisive, it was insipid, it was cold. It is the kind of movie people would respect, but not love or embrace. Also, it didn’t feel important, it didn’t tackle any themes at all, it was just a revenge story with pretty visuals, as opposed to Spotlight which…[Read more]

What about Steve McQueen? I think he has chances too, after all he directed a best picture winner movie.
Asgaroth replied to the topic Which 2-time acting nominee of the decade will be the first one to win in the forum Movies 8 months ago
I’ll add more diversity here and say Jessica Chastain.
Asgaroth replied to the topic If Parasite did not exist, what movie would win Best Picture? in the forum Movies 8 months ago
Director would have gone to Sam Mendes, but both picture and original screenplay to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, because that’s the next in line with the most support from both writers and actors. 1917 was just too much a substance-less of a movie to earn best picture honors.
International film would have gone to Pain and Glory.
Asgaroth replied to the topic Which Actor/Actress who hasn't been nominated before will win an Oscar? in the forum Movies 8 months ago
There’s probably no better example here than Sarah Paulson.
Highly likely: James McAvoy, Emily Blunt
Likely: Emma Watson, Asa Butterfield, Chloe Grace Moretz
Long shots: Jennifer Aniston, Ryan Phillippe, Bryce Dallas Howard

In the past decade + 2009 we’ve seen a lot of Oscar outcomes making Oscar history. From the first woman to win best director in 2009 to the first film not in the English language winning best picture in 2019. We also saw the first black writer to win best screenplay, the first Muslim to win an acting award, and stats-breaking records such as 2…[Read more]
Asgaroth replied to the topic What movie Thomas Newman should have won his Oscar for? in the forum Movies 8 months, 1 week ago
The “0” option is the 1917 option. For some reason, that’s the way it appears in the poll. I’ve edited it a lot of times to correct this but there’s just no case =/, it keeps appearing as “0”.
Asgaroth replied to the topic Would Traffic have won Best Picture under a preferential ballot? in the forum Movies 8 months, 1 week ago
Hell no. Traffic was just too much of a “cold” movie to win BP. It’s the perfect example of the movie voters respect… but not love.
I do find it funny how it virtually won every category that supports a BP win (directing, acting, screenplay and editing)… yet it still lost lol.
Asgaroth started the topic What movie Thomas Newman should have won his Oscar for? in the forum Movies 8 months, 1 week ago
His last loss for 1917 marked the 15th time in 25 years the Academy has denied him a recognition for his work, which at this point of the game feels something really wrong considering his amazing career as a composer, giving audiences a considerable amount of remarkable, memorable and unforgettable scores in plenty of well-received movies. So I’ve…[Read more]
