DaKardii started the topic 1937: Why wasn't Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs nominated for Best Picture?` in the forum Movies 1 week ago
It was the first full-length cel animated film EVER.
It was the highest grossing film of the year.
For two years, it held the record for the highest grossing film EVER.
It’s considered to be an all-time classic.
And yet it wasn’t even nominated for Best Picture.

Believe it or not, those categories actually existed at one point. They were only used once, for the 1st Oscars in 1929.
My bad. I got confused. The next Oscars are TECHNICALLY being held next year, so… XD
Anyway, that’s too bad. Do you think she’d have a better chance if they decided to push forward with the release and she competed at the 92nd Oscars (movies released in 2019, Awards in 2020)?
I don’t even know if Pike’s going to be eligible for this year’s Oscars. Isn’t there a rule that requires the film to be screened for paid admission in LA County before the end of the year? Right now, the film has no scheduled screenings between TIFF and the end of the year, and TIFF isn’t in LA County, so…

None of the above.
My choice would have a first past the post voting system, BUT instead of nominating 5 films or 10 films, the nominations would go to all films that earned at least 5% of the vote.
The Predictions Center currently has Theron in Lead and Kidman and Robbie in Supporting.
IMO, Theron will be a lock unless the film flops critically.
Kidman and Robbie are wild cards, because both will have to deal with splitting votes with The Goldfinch and OUATIH, respectively. I don’t see both of them getting in unless (1) this film is better…[Read more]
For some odd reason, the Predictions board seems to be way more favorable towards Streep than anyone else.
Four predictors have only Streep getting in.
Two predictors have only Pugh getting in.
One predictor has both Streep and Pugh getting in.
One predictor has both Streep and Watson getting in.
Four predictors have Streep not only getting…[Read more]
Saw the trailer last night (it was part of the previews for The Lion King).
My first thought was, “Judi Dench looks like the Cowardly Lion in this movie.”
My second thought was, “Wait a minute. As far as I’m concerned, people don’t get creeped out when they see the Cowardly Lion.”
So… I don’t get it.
Looks like the initial reports of Fisher playing Elvira were wrong. Leslie Mann will be playing that part instead. Fisher is still attached, but she’s in fact playing a different role, most likely Ruth.
I absolutely agree. I can see her as becoming either the next Deborah Kerr (she has similar looks and the same voice) or the next Robin Williams (her ability to change voices/accents rivals that of Robin). Both ended their careers with 4+ nominations to their name, plus one win (although Kerr’s win was an Honorary Oscar, not a competitive one).
1. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
2. La La Land
4. Slumdog Millionaire
6. The Shape of Water
7. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
8. Mad Max: Fury Road
9. The Aviator
I actually think they would be better suited to play Ruth, the second wife of Dan Stevens’ character.
Elvira will basically be trolling the other three characters for the entire film. Fisher is more than capable of taking that to the nth degree.
Speaking of Fisher, be prepared for category fraud if this gets Oscar attention. Although she’s…[Read more]
If Judi Dench was looking for a way to earn one more Oscar nomination in case she gets snubbed for Cats, she may have just found one.
Dench has been cast in Blithe Spirit, an adaptation of the 1941 play of the same name by Noel Coward. She will star as Madame Arcati, a medium who causes a lot of chaos after she accidentally summons the ghost of…[Read more]
The last time that happened was in 1992, when both Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon were nominated for Best Actress for Thelma and Louise.
The last time that happened and one of the two nominees won was in 1985, when both F. Murray Abraham and Tom Hulce were nominated for Best Actor for Amadeus, and Abraham won.
Meanwhile, there’s been one o…[Read more]
