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...

My first pick: Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008), by Woody Allen.
I’m not against Penélope Cruz’s Oscar win for this one over Viola Davis (Doubt) back in 2008’s Best Supporting Actress race (both deserving) and the movie should also have gotten a Best Original Screenplay nomination at least. A Best Picture nomination would be lovely too, since I…[Read more]

Me and my friend had a little fun the other day by talking about the underrated movies, performances, directing and screenplay works of all time (but since we are millenials, we focused mostly in the late 90’s to date movies).
Which movie, performance, directing or screenplay do you think went underrated or didn’t get the award recognition it…[Read more]
I agree with you. I believe the directors’ branch will go for whoever they think it’s the best… That’s why Gerwig failed to get a Best Director Oscar nomination in spite of all the media support for a female nominated director last season. That’s why Bong Joon-ho won over Sam Mendes. That’s why Nolan waited so many years to be nominated or…[Read more]
I also would go for Fincher instead of Nolan at this point (without watching both movies). Both are overdue, but Fincher managed to “break” with the AMPAS first and it has been a while since Gone Girl (2014), his last movie.
I guess you’re right about Boogie Nights… I’ve just checked it! My bad.
As for Haddish… well, she wouldn’t be the first going lead in comedy/musical just to secure a Golden Globe nom for the movie, but I remember she competed for Best Supporting Actress. I can see your point 😉

15 SNUBS IN THE COMEDY/MUSICAL ACTING FIELD OF THE GGLOBES:
* Natalie Wood, West Side Story (1961)
* Robert Redford, The Candidate (1972)
* Bill Murray, Groundhog Day (1993)
* Mark Wahlberg, Boogie Nights (1997)
* Anne Hathaway, The Princess Diaries (2001)
* Claire Danes, Shopgirl (2005)
* Bill Murray, Broken Flowers (2005)
* Scarlett Johansson, Vi…[Read more]
I would say Abbie Hoffman (Sasha Baron Cohen) and maybe Bobby Seale (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II). Seale particularly can be juicy if they play with the trial’s racial issues… And they got Alex Sharp (a Tony Award-winning actor graduated from Julliard) for playing Rennie Davis, one of the principal organizers of the anti-war protests and he was…[Read more]
I think if it manages to get a limited release (which might be hard since I don’t know what’s going to happen to Fall film festival), I think it has the potential to get some critics love and further award recognition. Lee Daniels directed “Precious” (Best Picture Oscar nominee) and in spite of “The Paperboy” and “The Butler” failed to get some…[Read more]
Right now, my very early predictions (I haven’t enough contenders for all the above the line categories):
“Da 5 Bloods”, Netflix
“In the Heights”, Warner Bros.
“News of the World”, Universal
“Tenet”, Warner Bros.
“The French Dispatch”, Searchlight Pictures
“The Trial of the Chicago…[Read more]
Well, I guess I’ll give 10 performances by an actor (leading and supporting) and 10 performances by an actress (leading and supporting) from the 21st century, ’cause I’m afraid I would have an (almost) endless list if I expanded…
10 Performances by an Actor
Gary Oldman, The Contender (2000)
Gene Hackman, The Royal Tenenbaums (2001)
Rodrigo De…[Read more]
5 names come to my mind at the same time for different reasons:
* MICHELLE PFEIFFER – an awards comeback for one of the most relevant actresses of the 80’s and 90’s… I think a lot of people (including the internet) wants her to happen. Plus, she should have won for THE FABULOUS BAKER BOYS (1989).
* EMILY BLUNT – I mean, I still don’t know how…[Read more]

If Meryl Streep went supporting for THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, I think she could win… I know everyone was over the moon with Jennifer Hudson for DREAMGIRLS, but Streep would give her some competition at least (and it would be a better 3rd win than THE IRON LADY)
DiCaprio… By far!
2 Oscar nominated performances for THE WOLF OF WALL STREET and OUATIHOLLYWOOD. 1 Oscar win for THE REVENANT. 5 Golden Globe nods, 2 wins. 5 Best Picture nominated movies (INCEPTION, DJANGO UNCHAINED, THE WOLF OF WALL STREET, THE REVENANT and OUATIHOLLYWOOD). Multiple box-office hits… And we are just talking about the last…[Read more]

Scarlett Johansson… No projects soon for her after BLACK WIDOW and (maybe) LITTER SHOP OF HORRORS, which might be because she’s being picky about the next one. She’s a big star and she has finally broken her Oscar curse
Edgar Pereira replied to the topic Which Actor/Actress who hasn't been nominated before will win an Oscar? in the forum Movies 4 months, 2 weeks ago
# Meg Ryan and Andie MacDowell if they manage a “comeback to glory” project.
# Jodie Comer, when she reaches the “hit girl status”
# Tessa Thompson… She will happen soon
# Guy Pearce
# Donald Sutherland (I hope it happens)
# Emily Blunt (too much “snubed” status, they will want to apologize)
I think I will buy a ticket for this one. I like when mainstream staes go weird and challenge themselves in this kind of roles. So, far so good. I thought they would go for Gaga, but I like Johansson for not being the most obvious choice
#1 – Zellweger win (both)
#2 – Penn (MILK) beats Rourke (THE WRESTLER), but I kinda can cope with this one
#3 – DiCaprio and Nicholson got snubed for THE DEPARTED
#4 – SELMA missing Best Director, Screenplay and Actor
#5 – Keisha Castle-Hughes (WHALE RIDER) steals Johansson’s Best Actress nom for LOST IN TRANSLATION
#6 – Lupita Nyong’o (US)…[Read more]
Preferential ballot. It’s not about the movie with most #1 votes, but the movie with most #1, #2 or #3 votes until one movie reaches more than 50% of “quality votes”. It’s complex, but PARASITE is in everyone’s TOP 3 movies of the year and 1917 doesn’t
