Taron Egerton of RocketmanJanuary 16, 2020 at 11:50 am #1203287952
Not her filmography though I guess… Frances is often mentioned here but otherwise does the general public remember it at all? Same for Blue Sky, she doesn’t seem to have that one movie at least everyone will remember her for, i.e. The Queen for Helen Mirren…January 15, 2020 at 12:08 pm #1203286407
The two popes in The Two Popes. It’s giving me On Golden Pond teas.January 15, 2020 at 12:04 pm #1203286398
I guess the best editing stat is just meant to be broken this year like it happened with the SAG ensemble/BP stat just recently…January 15, 2020 at 12:02 pm #1203286393
Haven’t seen Little Women yet but from the other three it’s Brooklyn easily.January 15, 2020 at 12:00 pm #1203286389
House of Sand and Fog doesn’t really belong there but it absolutely should have been among the best picture nominees. Also don’t get how it didn’t make it into best adapted screenplay…January 15, 2020 at 11:22 am #1203286303
EDITING Thelma is a legend and if she wins, it’ll be the most Editing Oscars ever won by anybody. But the running joke about the film’s runtime will be a constant reminder that for many, surely there was *something * she could have cut. And while her pacing is methodical and perfectly-suited for the film, it’s still not the rhythm that the members like to vote for and I can see a FORD V FERRARI easily taking this because for many, Best Editing is Most Editing (and there are very very few “action” setpieces in IRISHMAN and even those only last a minute or two.
It almost feels ironic that they nominated a 3.5 hours long movie for best editing…January 15, 2020 at 11:10 am #1203286280
Ronan is the least versatile of the 5 nominees. Even Erivo has proven more versatility with like 3 roles. BUT Ronan is really good in the costume Dramas. She’s like a more acclaimed Keira Knightly.
Whatever happened with Keira Knightly though? Is she never coming back to the awards race?January 15, 2020 at 10:57 am #1203286262
2011 will always and forever be the dullest year for me. None of the nominees sound exciting on paper. The Artist The Descendants Extremely Loud The Help Hugo Midnight in Paris Moneyball The Tree of Life War Horse Boring choices. No exceptions.
Agree, this one must be the worst in a long time. The acting nominees were weak as well. Last year was bad but it still had stuff The Favourite, Black Panther or Can You Ever Forgive Me that I rank higher than the 2011 crop…January 13, 2020 at 12:13 pm #1203281841
I think Johansson’s noms are somewhere in between Moore’s & Thompson’s for how it will play out. Thompson was coattail in In the Name of the Father and was solid in Remains of the Day but well behind the overwhelming frontrunner. Moore had good support for both and won a lot more awards for Far From Heaven and Johansson did for Marriage Story.
Thompson was also the best actress winner from the previous year so the afterglow effect must have helped her. Was it the only year where two actresses were nominated twice?January 13, 2020 at 12:00 pm #1203281810
DiCaprio getting in over GG winner Egerton is so Sweet and Lowdown 1999…January 13, 2020 at 11:36 am #1203281740
Unpopular opinion but I don’t mind The Farewell being completely shut out.
I just wish The Two Popes was ignored as well…January 13, 2020 at 11:28 am #1203281724
How many best picture winners are there that didn’t get in best editing?
