OMG, I did not realize how INCREDIBLE the nominees were during the 1970s. I tried to pick the best set of nominees for each category and I went with these years. Wow!!!!September 18, 2019 at 10:11 pm #1203085884
I think everyone here knows how much I like Emilia, but she has a long way to go before reaching her full potential. And that’s fine. She’s a champion and a survivor.
If someone here attacks her, though, I will cut a bitch.
I give you permission to cut 🙂September 18, 2019 at 9:04 pm #1203085838
I forgot about Emilia Clarke in Last Christmas. There was a great reaction for the trailer. The film was directed by Paul Feig who did a great job with The Heat, Bridesmaids, and Spy. The cast is wonderfully diverse, and Emilia is well loved by many. People are waiting to see one of the GOT stars become film stars.
Watch out for her…September 18, 2019 at 9:00 pm #1203085834
Neon really has to start the campaign for Clemency. They are slowly ruining Alfre’s chances of a nomination if she is as good as many have said.September 18, 2019 at 2:11 pm #1203085127
Watch out for Brad Pitt. He came swinging this year.September 18, 2019 at 1:30 pm #1203085015
^^^ I was lonely during my campaign for Nicholas Hoult to be nominated. Everyone was screaming Theron (who was not worthy in my opinion) but I was alone, fighting for Hoult here.September 18, 2019 at 9:03 am #1203084288
Its incredible that the excitement for ScarJo on here went completely down once she made her “Woody Allen” comments. For a moment, many, including myself thought she was going to take it all due to the reviews for her and her film. I do not like the comments she made but I hate how fragile award seasons can be. One mistake can cause someone an Oscar. If ScarJo gives the best performance, then she should be the winner. I guess I will have to wait and see. Renee and Lupita look like they have the most challenging roles, but I have to wait until I see all possible choices.
If Glenn Close had waited until this year, she would have swept with no issue.
One thing I just remembered was that Renee Zellweger was once huge star. Back when I cared nothing about cinema, I remember hearing her name a lot during the early 2000. She was like that last crop of Superstars during that early 00s era (Renee, Halle, Nicole, Angelina, etc)
Her having a comeback alone will get her many votes.September 18, 2019 at 1:34 am #1203083710
It’s crazy that ScarJo will likely get an Oscar nomination before Emily Blunt. ScarJo took over as Black Widow in the MCU once Blunt dropped out, and that role has made Scarlett a global superstar. Many believed that Blunt would continue to find success, especially with critics and awards, but now it looks like Johansson will beat Blunt to an Oscar nomination as well.
I wonder how Blunt HONESTLY feels about this.September 18, 2019 at 1:29 am #1203083707
The actual problem is the racism in the voting body. As difficult as it sounds, the post was accurate on how they vote.
You must have been gone during the Golden Globes ceremony. The amount of racist comments on here towards Blacks was ridiculously horrific. There are multiple racist members on here.September 17, 2019 at 4:50 pm #1203083219
After giving it some thought, I feel like When They See Us was a little better overall than Chernobyl. The last 2 episodes of Chernobyl did nothing for me. When it ended, I was like “was that it?’ I feel like the directing with When They See Us was better as well.September 17, 2019 at 4:42 pm #1203083209
When it comes to nominations and wins, the Emmy’s are 10x worst than the Oscars.September 17, 2019 at 12:48 pm #1203082828
I rewatched Gone Girl again on the plane, and I was finally able to truly analyze Rosamund Pike’s performance. My first reaction was that the writing paved the way for her performance. I take that back.
Rosamund by far has the best nominated/winning performance of this decade for an actress. I understand why Julianne Moore won, but Pike was simply breathtaking. There was a change of mind due to the holes within the story (the film not the book). It seems easier to play the insane role comparing to the ‘girl next door’ role, but the fact that she executed both roles was groundbreaking. I feel like any other actress would have focused on being “crazy” more than the entire character as a whole. The fact that I felt like Nick was the main villain goes beyond the writing. It was her performance.September 12, 2019 at 10:29 am #1203071168
Ellen Burstyn’s performance in Requiem For A Dream is the best Oscar nominated/winning performance of this century….September 12, 2019 at 10:26 am #1203071156
In no particular order…
-Ellen Burstyn (Requium For A Dream)
-Isabelle Huppert (The Piano Teacher)
-Marion Cotillard (La Vie En Rose)September 12, 2019 at 10:20 am #1203071144
It’s been a few months and I still do not get all the acclaim over If Beale Street Could Talk.
I do think the critics were a bit too nice but I love what the film represented. It showed beautiful Dark skinned Blacks in love. Nowadays, there is a he problem with colorism in the Black community within USA. Darker skinned Black women (Lupita, Viola, and Octavia’s skin tone) are being mistreated and disrespected by many Black male celebrities and they are not seen as beautiful. Many Black male athletes have called women that are Lupita’s skin tone ugly and they only want to be with women that are a lighter tone because they want lighter babies (which is very strange to me).
Colorism is a huge issue in many communities. Indians, Asians, Hispanic etc.. Darker skinned people seemed to be looked at as unattractive by some and I love that this film showed beautiful dark skinned Blacks in love.
