In 2019 they gave The Simpsons animated program instead of any of the other nominees? Or any of the other worthy shows not nominated?
Happy to see that Drag Race lost casting. They shouldn’t have even been nominated. It was an embarrassing season in terms of casting. They can’t win just for bringing Vanjie back, the only good casting choice they made.September 11, 2019 at 6:47 pm #1203070195
My only concern about her locking the nomination down is the fact that STX isn’t going to have much money to spend campaigning for her. She’s not going to have much of a studio push.
She’ll pay for the whole thing herself if necessary. And the best part, is that she has the money for it. If she gets confirmation that she’s actually a real contender in a few weeks when the dust settles, the movie’s out for a while, it becomes a hit or not, I doubt STX’s money will stop her.
If Sally Kirkland and Melissa Leo have the money to do it, so can JLo.September 11, 2019 at 9:17 am #1203069284
I don’t think that there’s anything funnier than Roger Ailes harassing women. So yeah, Bombshell sounds like it’s gonna be a comedy.September 11, 2019 at 9:15 am #1203069278
I see JLO’s now gunning for the SuperBowl Halftime spot, which happens to be a few days before Oscar voting ends. Hmmm.
If she gets the nomination, Laura and Margot definitely have competition.
And “details” about her wedding to ARod are also conveniently being revealed. You know she’s getting married before the Oscars.
She’ll be hosting SNL too at this rate. Too bad for her most of this year’s dates are already booked. She’ll probably do it early next year.
I love this whole thing. I desperately want this to happen because people will go insane.September 11, 2019 at 7:32 am #1203069095
This is getting really interesting. I hope that at the end of the day we don’t end up with a bunch of uninteresting nominees like Green Book, Robert Duvall for the Judge or Alan Arkin in Argo.
There are way too many exciting and unexpected stories coming into the race like a Pitt win, a nod for JLo, Zellwegger and her comeback, an overdue nod for Johansson, that elevator teaser from Bombshell.
I haven’t watched their movies of course, nor did I ever think any of this would happen (JLo, Renee), but coming into the race with stories like that is far more exciting than anything related to Green Book or Glenn Close losing again, for example.September 10, 2019 at 12:09 pm #1203067885
JLo is being rumored to do the Super Bowl. Of course she is. OF COURSE SHE IS. This woman is not gonna let you forget about Hustlers and her Oscar buzz.
But Rihanna is apparently releasing an album in December which will fit perfectly for Super Bowl promotion like everybody else has done before her.
Let’s see who ends up with the gig. But yeah, JLo is not backing down, she’s gonna campaign hard.September 10, 2019 at 9:40 am #1203067691
Seems to me like Pitt does have this one in the bag for now. But he’s gonna need a lot of support from the industry to get there because it’s starting to feel like old news. Contenders are being confirmed every day now. I’m sure the majority of Hollywood will be on board like they’ve been for others less famous people, in less important films and with a lesser performance.
The more people come into the race with Oscars already in their hands and less significant fame than Pitt’s, the easier he’ll win.
I would be careful with Willem Dafoe, though. 5th nomination, 3rd year in a row and a legendary Hollywood actor for quite some time already. If The Lighthouse semi succeeds, watch out.
And in that case, don’t forget that at the end of the day, Brad Pitt does have an Oscar already. And apparently he could still win in that category again since they’re putting out nominees almost every year. (Is he still with Plan B?).
As for Hanks, the whole story is about how he keeps getting snubbed. That’s his campaign. Not that he needs another Oscar, unlike Streep in 2011. So I don’t think he’ll be that much of a threat to other contenders for the win.September 10, 2019 at 6:29 am #1203067326
Just found out Rob and Sandra are coming back. Of all people.
I already went through one season of Sandra pretending she could win for a third time and another season with the show pretending the season wasn’t set up for Rob to win.
Why would I wanna see them on this show again? They’re also two of the most annoying people to ever be on the show. Why would I wanna see a group of people being stupid enough to not vote these 2 out on their first tribal? Not to mention people drooling over them for no reason.
They need to stop bringing people back. It never makes sense and it leaves the regular contestants as the biggest idiots on the planet.September 8, 2019 at 10:17 am #1203063621
I don’t know if I can handle the thought of Jennifer Lopez as an acting nominee. I wouldn’t even buy her as a song nominee.
What I can do is remember some examples like “not the best actress ever Jennifer Aniston” once being a possible Oscar nominee who was nominated everywhere and they still said NO! So J.Lo has a long way to go. ‘Cause there’s a lot precedent for questionable actors being snubbed after being included everywhere else.September 3, 2019 at 10:40 am #1203055682
Perhaps another one of the big Oscar films will end up submitting Comedy to get that easy Globe like Green Book and many others did before.
There’s also a chance that Cats becomes huge (regardless of our feelings) and ends up winning. I’m sure they’ll jump at the chance to justify the category being called “or Musical”. Especially if it’s a box office hit. And if it is, it can easily outgross Once Upon a Time…August 29, 2019 at 3:28 am #1203045805
She was an expected nominee. She was always in the race, she just wasn’t getting the big precursors. But she was never out of it as there was even some early talk that she could actually win. Then Cotillard, Christie happened, but she obviously was not forgotten in the end. The screenplay was nominated and was always supposed to get in. So there was some other kind support for the film, not just her nomination.August 27, 2019 at 1:11 pm #1203043213
Half of me won’t miss Jones because she wasn’t THAT good, but the other half will miss her because she was a huge presence and when she wanted to, she rocked whatever they threw at her. But it wasn’t as frequent as I would’ve liked so…bye, I guess.
Hopefully she’ll have a nice career after this show.
Good that McKinnon is back, this show still has veeeery few people to replace such a key cast member.August 25, 2019 at 10:05 am #1203039111
At least they’re getting nominated. In the last few years, even if sometimes it’s just Meryl Streep, at least 1 or 2 “older” actresses have been nominated. And not as filler. Last year McDormand won and Colman is in her 40s but has always looked 50 anyway. So things could be worse.
Looking over at the list really quick, it seems like 2002 was the last year where everybody was in their 40s or younger. And the two years before had Spacek, Dench and Burstyn as nominees.August 25, 2019 at 9:56 am #1203039094
Can the answer be none of the above? I don’t think any of their albums was good. Good singles, that was it.August 24, 2019 at 10:10 am #1203037659
Not having a troupe has nothing to do with having replacements for an injured pro. Even somebody like Artem can come back and fill in for a week or two.
Pretty sure a few times when a pro wasn’t available, instead of a troupe member they got an eliminated pro.
