Be realistic! Olivia Colman is NOT happening next year! Geez! That woman is so overrated on these forums, weren’t y’all the ones saying she will grab 3 Emmys nods this year based on her talent? Yet she coattailled from Fleabag’s success across the board and got zilch from the other irrelevant shows. In fact she always coattails, Had The Favourite not received that widespread critical acclaim, Colman with the same performance would have never been able to overcome the greatness of Glenn Close. She has luck, that’s about it (The Favourite, The Crown, Fleabag and The Night Manager) whenever her show/film is NOT acclaimed, she is disposable!October 10, 2019 at 6:42 am #1203130573
For how progressive this forum likes to think it is, there are a lot of mildly racist, misogynistic and bigoted people here and the funny thing is they don’t even seem to be aware of it.
I was frustrated to see the vitriol with which Sandra Oh was treated, simply because they didn’t think she should win, even after she had received acclaim and accolades for Killing Eve. It’s not surprising. Everytime someone from a minority starts winning awards and people don’t agree with that, they chalk it up to rACe because that is the only way these people can rationalize different opinions right? I’m annoyed at people (like the dumb was above) for acting like Oh is a mediocre actress with a mediocre performance when there’s plenty of evidence to prove the contrary. And let’s be honest, if Oh was white then she would already be an Emmy winner most likely.
Curiously I checked this year’s Oscar threads to see if they had the same reaction to another overdue narrative taking off. And as always, Goldderby didn’t fail to disappoint. I don’t think it’s necessary to point the difference in the treatment of Close and Oh. Everyone’s aware of it. One was stood on a pedestal and the other was torn down. One was met with pity on her loss, the other with cheers.
The sad thing is most people don’t even acknowledge the achievement that a 48 year old Asian woman in a lead role being still relevant is. Witherspoon and Kidman were praised to the heavens for such stuff. Why not the same for Oh? When Oh was snubbed at TCA this year, comments were made about how her performance was inferior this year so that’s why she wasn’t nominated. The same thing happened to Brosnahan but I didn’t see anyone make such assumption then.
Contrary to what some people will gather from this, my point is why does Oh have to work harder than her white co-workers to get the same level of respect, acknowledgement and treatment?
It’s nothing new though. I remember watching a video in which someone (not gonna name that person) from Goldderby made an offhand comment about how most Academy members hadn’t even watched Moonlight or 12 Years a Slave. Just like this, most insensitive comments/attitudes are not blatantly obvious.
The thing is most people preaching about racism here have a very myopic view about it. This isn’t a light issue. It’s more complex and deep-rooted than y’all realise. Remember that before you casually give some uninformed opinion on the internet about something again.October 9, 2019 at 12:37 pm #1203129772
Anyone who gives us this atrocity should be nowhere near the word hot.October 8, 2019 at 11:30 pm #1203128750
Loved it. Very poignant, especially Dany’s story. Chokes me up everytime. It’s sadly become a victim of hate-bandwagoning. It’ll age much better than people want to believe.
What do you like the most about the place where you are from? And what do you hate the most?October 8, 2019 at 10:02 am #1203127821
I’m surprised they never nominated Burrell though.
I’m not. They just went with the loudest performances on the show (Vergara and Stonestreet) and they never were that fond of it in the first place. It won once because it was winning at the Emmys.October 7, 2019 at 8:21 am #1203125526
Why must women always be compared to each other in a way men never are?
If a show has multiple contenders then comparisons are bound to happen, irrespective of gender. Brown and Ventimiglia, Dinklage and Waldau or Schnapp and Harbour…..this is nothing new. Dern and Streep are the current frontrunners from the shows that have aired so..October 7, 2019 at 8:09 am #1203125506
Well,502 movie critics and majority of viewers don’t think so. There is a world outisde GD. Trust Me.
I don’t care what other people think. It’s just that you seem to be unable to accept that not everyone shares the same views on DiCaprio as you. I admire you but DiCaprio seems like your blindspot. Your earlier post reeked of self-righteousness tbh.October 7, 2019 at 7:58 am #1203125483
Lol, Streep was so one note. It’s not really her fault, I guess. The character wasn’t very well written. But she definitely wasn’t win worthy, she wasn’t even the best supporting actress in her own show.
Streep wasn’t one note at all. Mary Louise was a broken grieving mother, a conniving bitch and a master manipulator whom Streep embodied to perfection. Everyone’s so focused on the loud, in your face stuff that the many subtleties of her performance have been missed by people. Even with less screentime Streep formed a better realized character than her co-stars could. Streep would be the last performer who I would call one note on Big Little Lies.October 7, 2019 at 7:22 am #1203125414
When are people going to admit, if they haven’t already, that Streep was just fine in BLL and should be the one missing lol.
Streep was better than whatever ham Dern was serving. Woodley had no presence this season and Kravitz was cringy af. She is the best of the contenders we’ve seen. HBC could be good but I think she’s miscast. Brown is not a good actress. Streep should be easily winning as of now.October 4, 2019 at 9:08 pm #1203121999
Driver’s stans are the unbearable ones here if you ask me. They been fishing articles and reviews on the internet just to trash Phoenix/Joker. Phoenix stans literally never attack Driver ones from what I could read until now, y’all the ones always coming for Phoenix in the 1st place. Geez! Chill guys, let’s enjoy the threads positively.
Finally someone said it. These Driver stans are no better than the Phoenix stans. The Driver stans really love to always act as a victim and it’s exhausting to see them throw a pity party everytime I open this thread.
Both of their behaviour has literally turned me off to both Driver and Phoenix. I hope Pryce/Banderas somehow take this. That would be glorious.
P.S. When will that music thread troll get banned?October 2, 2019 at 7:57 am #1203117429
Y’all acting like you won’t instantly cream yourself if you had the opportunity of actually doing it with Pine…October 2, 2019 at 7:31 am #1203117384
They’re overrated, all of them. I’ll take Adam over these generic dolls anyday
Pine is very hot and easily takes the cake. Driver is an acquired taste, so people’s opinion on his attractiveness is understandable.
The MCU Chrises couldn’t be more bland otoh. Sebastian Stan handily trumps all of them in both sex appeal AND talent. He can take me ANYDAY lol.
