I wasn’t really all that big on The Mitchells vs. The Machines. Everyone is talking on social media about how much they loved the film, and I thought it was average.
It absolutely was. I’m also shocked by the reception.

Colman, absolutely. I remember joking with one of my co-watchers about how stupid they would look if they gave it to Hopkins after switching the categories, and it got more possible especially after The Father won Screenplay over the Picture winner. I didn’t even THINK about Colman winning once after watching The Favourite in the beginning of January. That wasn’t even a possibility I considered. And The Favourite lost EVERYTHING that night. Colman winning might be one of the most shocking upsets ever.

I think it could have gotten adapted screenplay (would have bumped Logan). I don’t see any world where it could get acting or picture nominations as a sci-fi sequel when the first wasn’t nominated.
Fury Road got into Best Picture when the first three weren’t nominated. I still think there was enormous good will among those who had seen BR2049. It got what, five nominations? Winning Cinematography over three Picture nominees, one of them nominated by almost every single branch there is? Had more people seen it, BR2049 would almost definitely have been a contender for Phantom Thread’s or The Post’s Picture slot. Director is also possible; I like the movie but I still can’t fathom how anyone could think Lady Bird was better directed than BR2049. It could have taken Logan’s spot in Screenplay which was one of the coolest nominations of the last ten years, so that would be the downside to that, I think. Acting seems like a reach to me though; Gosling, de Armas and Wright were certainly good but I have never heard anyone singling out performances when talking about why BR2049 was great.

The way I just now realized that Frances won for three portrayals of fictional characters that had never been on screen before. And without campaigning, just through sheer performance and talent. The power she has is truly unmeasurable.

Wait until she finally delivers the performance you all are asking for in Tragedy of Macbeth and becomes the frontrunner again.
She could play Justin Bieber in a biopic and people would still complain that she’s always playing the same role.

Better Days was 4th at best, and that’s because it was literally impossible to watch The Man Who Sold His Skin outside of the US.

How is that even a question? Of course she does.

Also one thing I took away from yesterday: Bong Joon-ho will definitely be nominated again, if not win. He literally got a bigger and more epic introduction than every single one of the A-list actors and actresses. They know that he’s a star.

So who gave your favorite speech of the night? Vinterberg’s was so great, he could have talked for another month and it would have been just fine.
