Born in Portugal, the love for movie began when I was a child. Growing up watching Harry Potter and Spiderman movies, my interests soon became more serious and then I watched "Lost In Translation" and I fell in love with independent filmmaking. Predicting the Oscar is much more than fun, it's a game...

I loved the movie back then (and I still like it. I mean… who doesn’t like a rom-com?), but Weaver’s performance is a nothing performance!
I mean, Nicole Kidman got that atrocious snub for THE PAPERBOY, but Weaver got nominated…………
About TOTC7 being TOP 2 at the Oscars… I really think it will win Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay and Best Editing. Still, I want SBC to be nominated, but he doesn’t deliver winning material (fingers crossed for Daniel Kaluuya)
I must confess it is my #2 personal favorite movie of the year (behind SOUL) – guilty!
Am I the only one still predicting Andra Day? lol
I know early reactions suggest the movie misses to achieve the brilliance it aims for, but it seems there’s universal praise for Day’s performance. I mean, Lee Daniels was able to pull great performances from Sidibe and Mo’Nique (PRECIOUS, Oscar nominated) and from Nicole Kidman (THE PAPERBOY) and…[Read more]
Politics aside, I’ve just re-watched PYW and I believe it will be a hard sell for AMPAS members. Getting 1 nomination will be the reward (better than getting none) and I think it might well be in Best Original Screenplay instead of Best Actress.
#1 – McDormand, NOMADLAND
#2 – Davis, MA RAINEY’S BLACK BOTTOM
#3 – Kirby, PIECES OF A…[Read more]
I’ve just watched PIECES OF A WOMAN. To me, the best performance of the Best Actress field so far. My list of top Best Actress players (in terms of best performance):
#1 – Vanessa Kirby, PIECES OF A WOMAN
#2 – Frances McDormand, NOMADLAND
#3 – Carey Mulligan, PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN
#4 – Viola Davis, MA RAINEY’S BLACK BOTTOM
#5 – Anya Taylor-Joy,…[Read more]
The attempt of getting Scarlett Johansson nominated at both Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress back in the 2003/04 race for both GIRL WITH PEARL EARRING (lead) and LOST IN TRANSLATION (supporting).
I think it was that attempt of frauding her for supporting for LOST IN TRANSLATION that costed her an Oscar nomination back then. She was great…[Read more]

I’ve just had a moment of madness and I included Bakalova in my Oscar predictions! Maybe it was because I watched MY COUSIN VINY yesterday
The movie has plenty of good intentions. I liked the approach to Diana’s grief for Steve’s loss and Barbara’s take on feminism, but things just get messy and lost in the third act. The trucks action sequence could have been epic, but it was a mess (and we all know Jenkins could have done better if you remember the No Man’s Land action scene in the…[Read more]

To be honest, I think Carey Mulligan’s Oscar chances got hurt with the Drama placement at the Globes… No matter how less Oscar-worthy the other performances might be, the thing is I believe Mulligan would win in Comedy, but now she’ll have to face some ferocious (and more popular) competition in Drama.
Focus should have tried a strategy where…[Read more]

But Flanigan is doing better than Mulligan so far. I know the race has just begun, but NYFCC is quite a feat and NEVER RARELY SOMETIMES ALWAYS has appeared in every critics prizes… I smell it is this year’s UNCUT GEMS awards wise, but benefits from an extended awards season and big players’ late releases which will help NRSAlways to establish…[Read more]
Flanigan is having quite a momentum and I believe she will keep her outstanding run with critics. NYFCC and BSFC wins, 2 CFCA Award noms, a Gotham nod and a sure future Indie Sprit nomination… Her path reminds me of JLaw in WINTER’S BONE.
I’m a big Loren stan for Best Actress, but I had to drop her for Flanigan… She’s deserving of the Oscar…[Read more]
