Thanks, all!April 3, 2020 at 10:28 am #1203408220
Wait, can someone catch me up to speed, please? Which shows are no longer in contention here (either due to being rescheduled or some other reason)? Seeing responses about the sudden lack of competition has me feeling like I missed something somewhere along the line…March 26, 2020 at 8:44 am #1203395117
She should be winning lead. Agree with the placement, and she’s miles ahead of the rest of the category in terms of quality.March 21, 2020 at 7:15 am #1203389109
Not to be that person, but… what the hell are Hanks and Oldman doing on this list? Yuck.March 14, 2020 at 7:14 am #1203380991
Odd, I’d give neither of them a win in either race.
Julie Andrews in ‘82 (maybe Spacek if I’m in the right mood); I mean, come on: what a film, what a performance.
And in ‘85 I actually prefer all three other nominated performances to those of Lange and Streep, though I don’t really love any of those performances. I suppose I’m partial to Goldberg.March 12, 2020 at 2:44 pm #1203379586
I get your point but my point is that certain movies that have very vocal but apparently not really big actual fandom are not going to fare better in 2-5 years.
That’s not how taste works, though. Those groups will gain and lose supporters in that time. It ebbs and flows. Not everyone is committed to loving the same things they did 10 years ago simply because they *used* to be fans. That sort of behavior is just neither linear nor static.March 12, 2020 at 9:25 am #1203379305
Day-Lewis and it is not close.March 10, 2020 at 10:32 am #1203377056
Chazelle (saved by First Man, otherwise…)
Peele, I guess

Strange Days is one of the best to come out of the nineties, and Bassett should have an Oscar for it… God, she’s good.March 3, 2020 at 7:20 am #1203368778
Excited to hear you enjoyed this season, Marco! I suspected it might suffer a little in terms of overall quality, but I am overjoyed that it seems to only be slightly so 🙂
Can’t wait for its North American debut.February 25, 2020 at 10:47 am #1203360002
Atrocious! There is really no defense for this. Terrible taste abound!February 24, 2020 at 6:17 am #1203358388
I think I am far more forgiving of this when it happens for someone’s first trophy. If an artist previously collected a statue, and are once again a serious contender decades later, I am really only in favor of their win if they should win.
Did you have someone in mind, M?February 19, 2020 at 11:39 am #1203352153
Not afraid to admit that I would only have given him a win for that dumb song from WALL·E, which is basically a win by default. I would not call myself a fan of Newman’s work.
1994: Interview with the Vampire, Elliot Goldenthal
1995: Sabrina, John Williams
1999: The Red Violin, John Corigliano (a truly iconic win, could not imagine taking this away)
2002: The Hours, Philip Glass
2003: The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, Howard Shore
2004: The Village, James Newton Howard (only good nominee)
2006: Pan’s Labyrinth, Javier Navarrete (hated all the nominees this year)
2008: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Alexandre Desplat
2012: Anna Karenina, Dario Marianelli
2013: Her, Will Butler & Owen Pallett
2015: The Hateful Eight, Ennio Morricone
2016: Jackie, Mica Levi
2019: Joker, Hildur Guðnadóttir (didn’t care for the nominees all that much)
