Frances Conroy is really one of the BEST actresses we have. She is someone who should have had a much bigger film career. She is on Lange, Streep, Bassett, Woodards, Davis etc level to meJanuary 8, 2020 at 10:22 am #1203270788
I think this will (hopefully) include a conversation about race too. I can’t imagine making this movie without featuring Black barbies. Annnnd maybe Nicki’s mix for the end credits?
Had THAT been the main premise and starred a black actress it would have automatically been something fresh.January 6, 2020 at 3:52 am #1203265670
If JLo is snubbed, I called it weeks ago before anyone else when I said the academy will give her the Madonna/Courtney Love treatment.
There is a clear difference. Jennifer has done waaaaay more films than them. And is known as an actress more than they were.January 6, 2020 at 3:35 am #1203265652
Jennifer Lopez couldn’t hold her anger in after losing. I kept seeing those dagger eyes and she was not happy. She kept her cool but she was chilly for sure.
I went back and forth between Lopez and Dern, and I did pick the former thinking her screen time on top of an entertaining character would prevail. But she’s not really an actress if that makes sense. I mean sure she did Selena and Out of Sight in the 90s, but recently she just doesn’t go above and beyond past rom-coms. Dern, on the other hand, proved that even in a flawed film she could make me enjoy every minute she was on screen, even if all I heard was her voice (like her conversation with Driver about getting legal council ASAP).
She also, like many have pointed out, has the advantage of being in another big film- Little Women, and of course her success on HBO’s Big Little Lies. She’s an industry darling, and I am so happy to see her finally getting her moment to shine.
It doesnt make sense actually. Jennifer Lopez IS an actress. The fact that she has other ventures doesnt negate that fact. Her base is acting. And she was great in Hustlers, and her getting an Oscar nomination will be great for her.December 30, 2019 at 12:34 pm #1203254301
1999 POP VOCAL PERFORMANCE – MALE
Eric Clapton “My Father’s Eyes” – WINNER
“Save Tonight” – Eagle-Eye Cherry
“Anytime” – Brian McKnight
“Lullaby” – Shawn Mullins
“You Were Meant for Me” – Sting
Again, I would have voted for Brian McKnight here
Agreed. Eric’s win is good though.December 30, 2019 at 12:33 pm #1203254299
2002 – R&B VOCAL MALE
Usher “U Remind Me” – WINNER
“Lifetime” – Maxwell
“Love” – Musiq Soulchild
“Love of My Life” – Brian McKnight
“Missing You” – Case
I would voted for Brian McKnight or Maxwell here. I would have ranked Music Soulchild higher than Usher.
This should have been Musiq’s award. But I like Usher’s winDecember 29, 2019 at 9:51 am #1203253260

There is a difference between having African ancestry in your blood while being Latina…… and BLACK Culture/African American Culture. And that’s okay!December 28, 2019 at 4:35 pm #1203252848
Just because you don’t doesn’t mean others don’t. The 70s was still a period in the 90s. I’m sorry but 20 years ago is still a period. It’s Greta’s film and she acknowledges it.
Okay well in that case Uncut Gems is a period piece. It’s set in 2012….December 28, 2019 at 4:30 pm #1203252845
Talented dancer? She rehearses a lot and everything she does is literally choreographed. A true dancer is judged on freestyle.
She’s not a natural great dancer like Ciara, but at least I will agree that she dances with more ease than most of the others.
A capable actress for what? A maid in Manhattan? Gigli? Or Anaconda?
How do you know if she can free style or not? So are you saying that every tom, dick, and harry can do what Jennifer does on the stage???? NOPE. You have to be a talented dancer to do that. She started off as a HIRED dancer…..I’m sure she had to do free style to get the jobs she did.
Out of Sight
Lila and Eve
An Unfinished Life.
She was solid in ALL of those. You seen em’???December 28, 2019 at 4:04 pm #1203252831
Exactly. Moving right along….December 28, 2019 at 3:52 pm #1203252820
Her success? based on? Her discography is worthless, she’s a known thief, talentless, it’s all about her looks, no originality whatsoever, her music career is considered as mediocrity, her acting career is a succession of critically panned films. No wonder why she tried other ventures such as fashion etc.
Only her looks? Jennifer is a VERY talented dancer and performer. And she is a capable actressDecember 28, 2019 at 3:09 pm #1203252784
Jennifer Lopez is a joke, literally an industry plant turned legend. She stole from black singers her entire career so before rooting for her as an actress, you should get educated on her music career, people don’t hate on her for no reason.
First of all I dont need to be educated on anything about Jennifer Lopez, as I’ve following her career since the 90s BEFORE she became J. Lo….in addition to having the pleasure of meeting her. And you ARE a hater if you are judging her PERFORMANCE on the basis of her celebrity and pop star status and not simply what you think of the performance on screen….and its FINE if you didnt care for it. The Oscar SHOULD be about her performance, and that alone….not what songs she was rumored to have stolen. That literally has nothing to do with her performance.
