I agree. I think everything is so Clear now and there won’t be surprises : Hollywood : picture, original screenplay, supp. actor, production design -1917 : director, cinematography, sound effect, sound mix -Parasite : foreign film, editing -Joker : actor, score -Little Women : adapted screenplay, costume design -Marriage Story : supp.actress
I think Parasite could win Best Production Design. I’ve seen all the nominees with the exception of Irishman. I predicted Parasite to win.January 22, 2020 at 12:08 pm #1203299147
What an awful scandal. It really diminish the integrity of the Recording Academy. Shameful!January 21, 2020 at 10:55 pm #1203298149
It may be acceptable or not but I thought of these several times.
Best Christmas Music Album/ Best Holiday Music Album
Best Contemporary Country Album
Best Traditional Country Performance
And I hope they’re going to reinstate the Best Country Collaboration with Vocals category.January 20, 2020 at 11:08 pm #1203296034
I’ve seen all the nominated performances. Here’s my ranking:
1. Johansson – a true definition of best supporting performer. She leaves an indelible impression. I thought of her when the movie is over.
2. Robbie – it looks like an easy role to play at first but the twirl scene and her confession are so heartbreaking.
3. Pugh – she gives a beautiful performance. I like her transition from being naive to her maturity.
4. Bates – you can compare her role to Jacki Weaver in Silver Linings Playbook. Bates is mostly a background maternal character but her bathroom and press conference scene were just fantastic.
5. Dern – if she wins she will be one of the worst winners in Oscar history. There is NOTHING really rewarding in that role. She was good but not memorable.January 19, 2020 at 7:14 pm #1203293710
Lol @ the media pushing so hard that narrative of Brad and Jen getting back together just because they both happen to be successful this year

Klaus for Best Animated Feature.January 13, 2020 at 5:49 am #1203279773
I’m so happy for Klaus. Poor Frozen 2.
Poor JLo and Taron. I know JLo and Elton John are pissed right now.
Shocking no Downton Abbey, Dolamite, Rocketman in Costume Design. The BAFTA was so right.
Shocking for Kathy Bates, Ronan and Pugh, Banderas and Two Popes actors.
Yes for Todd Phillips. I know he’ll get in.January 13, 2020 at 5:05 am #1203279143
in 13 minutes now. Good luck everyone.January 13, 2020 at 12:13 am #1203278893
Dern is winning because – She’s the only way to reward Marriage Story. It looks like voters won’t care enough to give it an above-the-line award so Dern is perfect here – Similarities to the iconic Renata Klein – Another acclaimed performance in Little Women which only helps her case – She’s Hollywood royalty – Her parents are Hollywood royalty as well. Many of these voters are connected to Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd and will not hesitate to vote for their daughter – She’s been on fire the past few years and the Oscar will be the icing on the cake – There’s no alternative. Voters won’t forget Jlo’s mostly awful filmography (see Stallone) The Dern machine has too much oil and juice to be stopped. She’s getting her career award because she paid her dues to Hollywood. Yall need to accept the inevitable
She also work and popular at the Academy so that really helps.January 11, 2020 at 3:56 am #1203275186
The gown was fine but not suited for her. It would look better if it was all plain green or black or dark blue. The floral design makes her look like a bedsheet.January 11, 2020 at 12:58 am #1203275076
I’ve seen both Marriage Story and Hustlers. In my opinion, JLo gives better performance than Dern. There is nothing really special about Dern’s Nora. She was fine but not memorable.
