He can do it. And so can someone else.
It’ll be 20 years in 2023 (for the 2022 Oscars) since Brody did that. That’s more than enough time for a record to be broken. And if it’s Chalamet by any chance, he’ll still be a couple of years younger than Brody in 2023.
The problem has already been mentioned. They like them old. I wonder if Malek would’ve won if he was in his 20s.
I mean, a certain 20-something actor was just snubbed for basically playing the same role. Meanwhile, a 40-something actor is winning for playing a role very famously rewarded once before. (These aren’t the exact reasons for any of this happening, but…)January 24, 2020 at 6:21 am #1203302102
Sure, but who actually cares about Bombshell? Even if you like its makeup better than Joker’s, I can guarantee you people are going to remember the look they made for Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker, having the daunting task of making a design completely unique from the other iterations of the Joker, before they remember anything in Bombshell, in which similar stuff has been done time and time again. Sometimes, less is more.
Really don’t care about who wins here, but:
“Sometimes less is more” to defend clown makeup?
And then against Bombshell: “similar stuff has been done before”, which is said right under “other iterations of Joker”. What?
Also, what was unique about this makeup? The blue triangles on his eyes? Don’t tell me it’s the red nose.January 23, 2020 at 8:09 pm #1203301768
Why isn’t the trailer the girl’s reveal too? The quality of the trailer is extremely superior and it goes with the “American” theme.
The reveal looks like it was shot in a warehouse with cheap Home Depot lighting from Ru’s garden. And it doesn’t go with the theme at all. Not saying it should be red white and blue, but hey, they did exactly that as well and it looks so much better, so why not use it for both commercial and reveal?January 23, 2020 at 9:39 am #1203300271
So, February 28th.
Anybody know what happened to All Stars? I can’t help but think about a Angelea/Lisa situation from Top Model All Stars. Something happened here. And you know Shea Coulee is involved.
Weird since the group so obviously went to Drag Con UK and some rumored queens took pics together. I thought we would get an announcement last week during the event. Maybe they didn’t want to announce anything considering how much of a mess that Drag Con was.
But hey, whatever, we’ve waited this long, it’s almost February, so bring on season 12, it’s premiering the exact same date as last year anyway. I guess All Stars will be in May or something.January 22, 2020 at 10:49 am #1203298981
I think it goes to Joker. Can’t imagine them giving this film 11 nominations and just one win for Phoenix. However, last year Colman’s Oscar was her film’s only award out of 10, so…
But Joker seems to be much more of a favorite than The Favorite ever was, considering it got all these nods, whereas The Favorite’s 10 nods were easy, logical and a given. So, I think Score not only deserves to win, but will be swept along with Phoenix for the film’s only wins.
Newman does have a huge shot, though, but his film can be rewarded in other places, Joker not so much.January 21, 2020 at 5:12 pm #1203297678
Lead single, B-side, album track, leaked today, leaked months ago…it sucks. Like others said, it sounds dated and as “not gonna happen” as Perfect Illusion.January 21, 2020 at 10:14 am #1203296595
I think she could’ve won this year. I mean I thought she was definitely winning last year, so who really knows? But yeah, in my mind, she could take down Zellweger. So could Colman, McDormand, Moore, and others. Besides the performance, I think Zellweger is winning because there’s nobody else and somebody told Johansson and her team “you’re not winning” and they left it at that and her campaign (if there ever was one) was dropped. Netflix looks like they also let go of Marriage Story and focused solely on Dern from that film, an actress who came into the campaign with half the work it takes to win already done anyway.
But yeah, Glenn Close could’ve been super competitive this year. If she took down Gaga at the Globes, for example, she could’ve taken Zellweger there too. And the at SAG it would’ve been an easy win.January 21, 2020 at 6:05 am #1203296241
Of course not.
And if so, documentaries and animated films should also get the same treatment.January 20, 2020 at 8:26 pm #1203295894
Great premiere. Glad to see everybody back and still doing such a good job. Can’t believe it’s been 20 years.
Briga Heelan…is she ever gonna make it?January 20, 2020 at 6:35 am #1203294666
I don’t think Adam Driver is winning the Oscar in 2 or 3 years.
He surely is no longer unknown within the Academy’s closed doors, but he’s definitely not what Leonardo was after his loss for Blood Diamond.
Driver coattailed last year, and he was definitely not missing for MS. Let’s just not pretend he’s overdue or he’s an academy darling because he clearly isn’t.
He will have to be against 4 previous winners or have the huge acclaim/support to prevail at the Oscars.
Y’all painting it like the path for him will be so easy now that he’s an established name. It that was the casse, Leonardo would have won way before 2016.
And you’re painting it like Driver isn’t firmly in second place this year and doesn’t have just one guy to deal with. Next time he could have nobody to deal with like Laura Dern. Who knows? Leo didn’t win until 2016 because there was always somebody else. Until there wasn’t. Same thing could happen to Driver…. or not. Again, who knows?
I’m sure you weren’t saying in January 2017 that Mahershala Ali would win again in 2019. But it happened.January 19, 2020 at 6:49 pm #1203293516
Well The Crown finally won something. It’s a good cast.
Sam Rockwell?January 19, 2020 at 6:04 pm #1203293370
This is cool for Aniston. LOL at Olivia Colman flopping this awards season…you know Glenn Close fucked this up with some witchcraft or something. She couldn’t even win for Fleabag. Can’t imagine them winning cast at all. (Watch them win now…)January 19, 2020 at 5:51 pm #1203293305
That shot of Jennifer Aniston…
Michelle Williams is winning an Oscar in her next nomination. Whatever the role, it’s gonna be it. People will think she’s really overdue thanks to things like this role and this round of speeches.
