Finally an awards ceremony!
February 16, 2022 at 12:59 pm #1204805256
For me, the 90th Academy Awards had one of the better Best Picture lineups in recent memory: Call Me By Your Name Darkest Hour Dunkirk Get Out Lady Bird Phantom Thread The Post The Shape of Water Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri I mean CMBYN, Get Out, Lady Bird and Phantom Thread all in one year? Divine! Plus, A Fantastic Women winning International Film was the cherry on top of it all
Okay, yes, but TSOW and The Post kinda ruined it for me.February 16, 2022 at 12:50 pm #1204805248
1941, 1951, 1968, 1972, 1973, 1977, 1986, 2007, and 2011 (year of ceremony) would ALL like a word.February 13, 2022 at 1:40 pm #1204800122
Not possible. Being the Ricardos was rejected by the general membership and all other branches. Visibility was not an issue for the movie because it was being helmed by Amazon studio spamming FYC ads everywhere including the actress round table (which Kidman was not even a part of). It made it at the Globes (Best Actor/Actress, Screenplay), AACTA, WGA, PGA, and BAFTA (Original Screenplay and Best Score). It’s Ma Rainey 2.0.
I was talking about TLD.February 13, 2022 at 1:21 pm #1204800092
The Lost Daughter missing Best Picture at BAFTAs and Oscars makes me think voters don’t like the film. People say don’t pay attention to audience score, but that score is the worst score for Best Actress film nominee since forever.
Maybe not enough people outside the actors’ branch watched it to make the final 10?February 10, 2022 at 8:17 am #1204794414
Is BAFTA even relevant this year? It went 0/6. There’s no Gaga or Haim or Scanlan at the Oscars, so the entire British bloc will place their votes behind Colman. Sounds like a good deal to me.
Yeah, I think so too. Even if they didn’t vote for her at BAFTA, she’s their obvious pick for the Oscars.February 10, 2022 at 8:15 am #1204794410
Yeah better, but still couldn’t get back their tiny budgets. For the life of me, Gucci would have been a better BP contender than Nightmare Alley which was a terrible sleeping pill. Anyway, call me when Spencer gets back its budget. I heard Neon is broke already. Lol
You need to stop being so damn bitter.February 9, 2022 at 11:50 am #1204792504
Over the past few months, I hate to mute/unfollow some many people from film twitter. The pettiness, the messiness, just nothing short of primary school behavior. They have way too much time on their hands to interact/bait the trolls and the stans. They should be watching and reviewing more movies instead. I don’t know where Im gonna get my news from now. But at least, thank god Film Updates always keeps it professional. And I’m shocked that people are still doing it even today. Move on. Focus on the performances that are actually nominated.
The way I ignore people left and right everywhere here too. I don’t hate muting/ignoring though, it makes my life easier.February 9, 2022 at 10:53 am #1204792342
I really love Gaga and thought she would be a deserving nominee, but coming for Cruz makes no sense. Just because Parallel Mothers wasn’t Spain’s submission does not make it obscure, it’s still an Almodovar film starring an Oscar winner. We all know Sony knows how to run a late campaign (The Father), so it shouldn’t be that big of a surprise. I think what this race shows is that everyone was within very close margins of each other when the top 2 BAFTA nominees are Oscar snubbed and SAG only lined up 3/5. Also, I really only think Gaga missed because people assumed she was safe and put their vote elsewhere. Similar to what I imagine happened to Amy Adams in Arrival.
I’m also leaning towards this. With how competitive this category is, I’m sure many voters went for passion picks over actors they thought would be safe.February 9, 2022 at 8:58 am #1204792032
Besides the Oscar nom, this role confirmed Gaga as a movie star. It’s the only drama that made money in almost two years and that’s probably 60% because of her. The role wasn’t a mistake. She will be fine.
This. She’s easily among the most bankable movie stars of the post-pandemic era, I see her getting countless offers and roles in the near future. Hope she chooses wisely.
If anyone out there is trying to remake The Little Foxes and needs a perfect Regina… But then, maybe she shouldn’t just do impeccably dressed women who kill their husbands.Not now
