Babe, Hollywood doesn’t make them like that anymore. Now we have Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya What a joke Hollywood has become.
Chalamet is genuinely a good actor, they just overhyped him at one point way too much..svg” class=”emoji”March 17, 2023 at 11:26 am #1205355658
I don’t know what happened but I’m almost 100% sure the project is dead. Everyone attached has multiple other projects booked out now.
Oh crap. Isaac would have been great as young Coppola 😩March 16, 2023 at 3:30 pm #1205354655
Does anyone know what happened with that Godfather biopic where Oscar Isaac was supposed to play F.F.Coppola?March 15, 2023 at 5:48 am #1205352751
Darling, I love this very unusual, out-of-the-box oscar winning performance lol. And yes, Michael Myers’ Girlfriend deserves her Oscar.
JLC managed to be touching and wholesome as a character with sausages for fingers. That’s really an achievement.March 14, 2023 at 8:42 am #1205351847
Oldman has Chalamet’s Oscar but
Eh, nope. 🤷🏼♀️March 13, 2023 at 4:15 pm #1205351186
I think the hate Jamie is getting for “stealing” the Oscar from Bassett and Hsu is so ironic because JLC literally spent the entire award season championing for her co-stars and fellow nominees.
I’m ready to bet JLC’s campaign for the movie really helped Michelle too, tbh.March 13, 2023 at 12:40 pm #1205350912
Joker is an excellent film. A mediocre film can’t win top prize at Venice. Also, which Oscar material of 2019 was bigger or more popular than Joker? Joker remains a cultural phenomenon and Joaquin Phoenix deserved his sweep. You can’t make one billion when you’re mediocre. Even Bohemian Rhapsody was very entertaining
You are not saying all of this because Gaga is in the Joker: Part 2, are you? 👀March 13, 2023 at 7:32 am #1205350303
How reasonable is it to assume that had Jamie Lee Curtis not openly expressed that she wanted an Oscar nomination and forcibly lifted herself into contention, the love for EEAAO could’ve amounted to a Hsu win? I remember seeing a post here when Supporting Actress was announced along the lines of “If they wanted a career win, Bassett was right there. If they loved EEAAO so much, Hsu was right there.” JLC actually allowed the Academy to kill two birds with one stone in that regard. I just feel uneasy with the idea that someone can literally announce that they want an Oscar and then win, with a performance that wasn’t even particularly notable. It speaks to the power imbalances in the industry that have come into wider consciousness this awards season.
I mean it doesn’t work that way. It’s not enough to announce you want an Oscar-she had to be in an acclaimed movie which swept awards, she had enough role for it plus she campaigned like crazy for the whole movie and her fellow cast members all season.March 13, 2023 at 7:27 am #1205350295
I’m on team Butler. So he was “annoying” at awards shows. Plenty of nominees get their heads big about their work. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t win your honors. Again Fraser’s win felt strictly political. Butler put his heart and soul into Elvis, and lost to a 600 pound fat suit. If you switched the roles, I’m sure Butler could easily have donned a ton of makeup, worn a whale costume, and ate pizza with ranch dressing. But I doubt highly Fraser would be able to pull off the King himself, even in his overweight days. Sigh. It’s just sad the new generation of voters seem to punish any little thing an actor does or what they think an actor has done personally, casting them aside right away. The cancellation culture is insane. It Happened to Tommy Lee Jones in Lincoln, when after making some ugly faces at the Golden Globes- became a meme, and lost to Christoph Waltz in Django Unchained. I like Waltz, but Jones was vastly superior- in a more difficult role. Back to Fraser- I personally don’t think he deserved this at all. Even my long time friend who has watched the Oscars with me since we were in high school – phoned me tonight with utter shock in his voice. “He won…for that? FOR THAT??? Come on!” Butler was punished for most likely being ‘too pretty’. It’s very hard for pretty boys to win for playing pretty boys. This goes all the way back to the days of Cary Grant. But if not Butler, Nighy and Farrell certainly were more deserving. I haven’t seen Mescal, so cannot comment. Fraser’s win will not hold up well down the line. And I don’t care how much he “cried during his speech”. Big deal. It’s the work that should have been cited.
I doubt that was the cause Butler lost. They gave award to Casey Affleck who had like rape allegations or whatever at that time, so I seriously doubt that Butler being annoying at some award shows really costed him the Oscar.March 13, 2023 at 7:24 am #1205350287
Colin should have been nominated for The Batman also. I’m sure he will get another shot down the road.
Eh, no. DeVito was superior movie Penguin anyway.February 11, 2023 at 11:23 am #1205300334
The only line in Adele’s speech that I felt would give some voters the ick was “Beyoncé is like Jesus fucking Christ”. However, every trace of that phrase has been wiped from the internet so maybe voters did forget it. Adele is notorious for not choosing words carefully during interviews but that was by far the most reckless she’s been. A huge majority of those voters are religious.
You sure? Cause those same voters voted this year for a song which was performed by Sam Smith dressed up as Satan. But they are too religious to ever vote again for Adele cause she said that about Beyoncé?ReplyFebruary 7, 2023 at 2:52 pm #1205296476
Bey’s strength in the R&B field is still a thing. She took 2/3 home and would’ve won R&B performance had she submitted Cuff It instead. They very much respect her. It wasn’t a great night for Adele, but I suspect it was because 30 was so front-loaded. She’ll come back harder next time.
Adele should have submitted “Oh my god” tbh. Superior song.ReplyFebruary 7, 2023 at 2:25 pm #1205296448
Adele needs to make something different with her next album, some changes.ReplyFebruary 7, 2023 at 12:30 pm #1205296230
It’s always the excuses when we know at the end of the day, almost every AOTY winner has a decent amount of appeal for middle aged and older white folk. That’s always gonna be the biggest factor when it comes to AOTY. And it can’t be dismissed. There are of course always other factors. But that has always been and will always be a major component, and that includes the handful of year black people have won.

You think people cares about that… you’re dumber than I though. Of course Taylor won with all that campaign literally no one gives a fuck
Besides her year long campaign for this video was for an Oscar nom/win. Which she didn’t get. So win for BMV was more like a consolation prize in place of absent Oscar nom 🤷🏼♀️ Her main goal at the Grammys was to finally win SOTY. She never won it before. And she still didn’t win it now.ReplyNot now
