Westworld S3 fell almost 10 points on Metacritic since the first reviews came. Let’s wait till Ozark’s score settles before anointing it as anything.
I don’t think Metacritic is such a factor in this case (or at any case for that matter, but that’s a discussion for another place). It is clearly apparent that the Academy in particular has a strong appeal to Ozark, and despite 59 for season 2 it managed to snatch 2 major wins in the main ceremony last year, one of them completely out of the blue.
Don’t get me wrong I still think Succession got Series/Writing/Directing in the bag for now, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Ozark takes one of them undeservedly again.March 26, 2020 at 3:33 pm #1203395875
Ive been saying for months Ozark is an enormous threat. Especially now with the Crown not causing as much noise as it expected to.
Watch out for it… I’m really not on board tbhMarch 23, 2020 at 5:06 pm #1203391987
If we are talking about not winning, then it must be McConaughey for True Detective S1.
I know Cranston was brilliant as always and MM was in the wrong category due to idiocy from HBO, but still. Still pains me to remember that.March 23, 2020 at 3:55 pm #1203391921
This episode was pure Nolanism. Loved it.March 23, 2020 at 6:43 am #1203391046
That GoT reference was everythingMarch 20, 2020 at 4:13 pm #1203388609
I can get behind postponing the ceremony, but why not to announce the nominations?March 18, 2020 at 1:41 am #1203385285
Might be a dumb question but I really don’t remember enough from S2
I remember in the end of season 2 Dolores was inside Charlotte Hale’s “robot” escaping Westworld with a few “robot brains” in her bag.
Dolores probably rebuilt her body and populated it- do we know who’s inside Charlotte Hale?March 17, 2020 at 3:43 pm #1203384963
Rhea Seehorn is sheer brilliancy.March 16, 2020 at 2:10 pm #1203383448
Just seeing Denise Thé in the opening credits is the highlight of the season of me. According to IMDb, she’s writing three episodes. She wrote one of the best episodes of Person of Interest and I’m glad she finally joined Westworld.
Did this whole Rehabam thing remind you of the PoI’s Machine?March 16, 2020 at 11:05 am #1203383053
I can already see this glorious new opening titles sequence losing to Ozark or something absurd as thatMarch 14, 2020 at 10:58 am #1203381171
Bitter Nolan and La La Land stans are the only ones that have a problem with Parasite winning. Shocking.
Not really. It doesn’t take a genius to find a movie that just won the Oscars for best picture two weeks ago also winning the best of the DECADE copious…March 13, 2020 at 12:39 pm #1203380471
Oh yeah! I want him to win for sci fi rather than something like Dunkirk. Not that he wasn’t worthy (better job than Fish Flick which I still don’t get how and why it won of all genre movies ever in contention) just that he made his name and advanced sci fi so it would be awesome.
I agree. With Inception and later with Interstellar, Nolan is now the father of “realistic science fiction”, that we are starting to see more and more of these days. Looks like Tenet will join these two’s rank, according to the previews. Seems like a more than deserving win
Ugh and don’t even remind me of 2017… That award season was painfulMarch 13, 2020 at 12:28 pm #1203380452
repeat the poll in 5 years and watch Parasite sweep again. I bet it will.
lol I hardly find that likely.
Inception however came out 10 years ago and still considered a masterpiece of it’s genre. Too bad it lost to a trend due to recency bias and the internet echo chamber.
I truly believe that’s what Parasite is btw. Merely a trend
