The way it just dawned on me that Elvis got shut out completely in wins…
Between EEAAO taking 7 and All Quiet taking 4, half of the BP nominees were left empty-handed. Tar, The Fabelmans, Banshees, Elvis and Triangle of Sadness all left with nothing.ReplyMarch 13, 2023 at 7:08 am #1205350253
Outside of the wins, I thought the ceremony was pretty solid, even if it wasn’t the most adventurous nor the most action packed (also, the fitout of the venue was lovely). It felt pretty classic but streamlined. I didn’t really understand some of the presenter choices/pairings and I could have done with a more energetic red carpet, but after last years debacle it was fine.
I guess there’s nothing to complain about the ceremony per se, but also nothing to remember it for. No one will ever say “Remember when they did (insert something) at the 2023 Oscars?”ReplyMarch 13, 2023 at 5:13 am #1205350076
To me it seemed like they couldn’t wait to get the show over with, going from one award to the next but nothing really memorable in between. I kind of miss the spectacle this used to be. And I’ll take a trainwreck that at least bothers to put in some effort over a boring unremarkable 3 and a half hours ceremony.Reply
It’s like they stopped trying. They’re not even trying to create interesting ways to introduce the nominees anymore. Some categories didn’t have clips of the nominees at all and Best Director was simply a still picture slideshow.March 8, 2023 at 3:43 am #1205337831
I have this weird feeling that the Curtis/Hsu vote split won’t be a big thing, it feels like Curtis has so much love, she gets to shine for the first half of film and makes a strong impression as well, plus she’s been campaigning like crazy for the film (and everyone involved there) since the beginning. She’s a veteran in the Best Picture frontrunner, she was overdue for an Oscar nod. She could win this thing (which sucks because she’s probably in 4th/5th place among the nominees)
Jamie Lee Curtis was overdue for an Oscar nod?March 7, 2023 at 2:17 am #1205335618
I don’t think Academy will please people giving EEAAO 3 acting Oscars. When it comes to this kind of things Academy really think if it is the right choice or not, there are many examples in the recent years, and yes people Will be saying that are the sames examples but here I go: 1) Giving McDormand her third Oscar over giving Viola Davis her second Oscar. 2) Giving Anthony Hopkins a very well deserved second Oscar over giving a passionate posthomous Oscar to Chadwick Boseman. 3) Giving Mark Rylance an Oscar over giving a passionate Oscar (is his time,is a leyend) to Sylvester Stallone. 4) Giving Olivia Colman a very well deserved Oscar over giving another passionate Oscar (is her time, is a leyend) to Glenn Close. 5) Giving an Oscar to Bong Jong Ho over giving a second Oscar to Sam Mendes. 6) Giving an Oscar to Moonlight for Best Picture over giving an Oscar to La La Land. 7) Giving his second Oscar to Sean Penn over giving an Oscar over Mickey Rourke. Here are few examples of the Academy doing the right thing in the last years. So yeah , the Academy will please us giving EEAAO at least 5 Oscars (maybe 6), giving a Sarah Polley her Oscar for Screenplay, giving RRR an Oscar for Original Song. So there is the Diversity, what else do You want ? Another fact, many people are expresing that voters Will not give Condon an Oscar for not being a well known name, I remember you , again ,with STATISTICS, Ariana de Bose won an Oscar at 31 being a completely unknown name . So yeah , I’m very confident that EEAAO is not Winning 3 Acting Oscars this sunday, it Will be TOO MUCH. And another thing , if La La Land was very divisive with the Academy, imagine a Blockbuster film (yeah , a Blockbuster, a very well made independent ando ingenious film, but Blockbuster at the end) . Many EEAAO lovers Will be replying at this , AND LET ME BE CLEAR, IM NOT TROLLING , ONLY GIVING AN ARGUMENT.
Everything you said is true, but also Coda won all the categories it was nominated for last year. Granted, it was up for only 3 awards, but it would’ve won more had it been nominated. Coda was just riding a wave and people would just vote for it in any category they could, and I believe the same is happening to EEAAO this year.March 6, 2023 at 5:00 pm #1205335318
Nice statistics, but no way EEAAO is winning 3 Acting Oscars, and no way BAFTA is getting only 1 out of 4. The safest way to predict is going Blanchett, Butler , Condon and Quan. I remember you that 2 years ago ,SAG did only got 2 out of 4 and BAFTA 4 out of 4.
I do think EEAAO might win 3 acting Oscars. If you look at SAG and more recently the Spirit Awards, people are voting for this film in every single category possible. I don’t get it, but it is what it is. And I guess the Oscars will just follow the trendMarch 1, 2023 at 4:13 am #1205327314
Still hoping for a Condon win. IMO, the best performance in this category by quite a bit. Basset would be a better winner than JLC, also IMO.
Any of them would be a better winner than JLC. Her performance was nice, but it’s arguably the weakest out of the 5 nominees.February 28, 2023 at 5:43 pm #1205326909
Well it did do its job of turning the room in Yeoh’s favour. JLC is an excellent campaigner and knows her stuff. The entire EEAAO cast is campaigning for Yeoh.
It’s job was not to promote Yeoh, but actually to promote herself as the nice woman who supports other women, especially minorities! But yeah, I’ll agree she’s an excellent campaigner as some people are actually falling for that.February 28, 2023 at 11:36 am #1205324392
Doesnt matter. Filmtwitter has been railing on her all year, it’s not like their tiktok rants will matter. They also fail to realize how much she has helped the movie’s buzz and campaign.
Why have they been railing her on Twitter? I haven’t been followingFebruary 28, 2023 at 7:06 am #1205323955
Outside of Goldderby and filmtwitter JLC’s win won’t be seen as a travesty because if you havent noticed by now, the industry loves her (and a lot of people still fail to realize this fact or are just in straight up denial). Hoping Angela takes this!!
I agree people love her now but I think in a few months people will not be ok with her winning.
There are already many videos on TikTok onto her tatics, how she had to tone it down about herself and make it more about the movie to make her chance stronger. And then she goes on stage and gives a “You say Michelle, I say Yeoh” which is very transparent even though it still still take a few more weeks for people to realize – and that might only happen after she has already won.February 27, 2023 at 2:06 pm #1205323204
I do feel like in this internet standom age we’ve gotten to the point where a lot of people just think that any successful well liked actor should have an oscar as evidence of their success. There are tons of different metrics of success and I’m sure plenty of forgotten oscar winners from the 80s or 90s might trade in their award for something like Curtis’s career.
Definitely. An Oscar is not an evidence of a successful career. Tom Cruise has been at the top of Hollywood for almost 40 years without an OscarFebruary 27, 2023 at 2:03 pm #1205323201
I think you’re being unfair re JLC. I don’t know where to start since the “overdue” thing is almost incidental where she’s concerned. You don’t have to like her perf or nod but she definitely deserves it.
Ok, you can definitely argue she earned her nomination or even that she deserves to win because she’s the best this year, I’m not debating that. I was just puzzled by the argument that some people don’t think this is a particularly great performance but might vote for her because she’s “overdue”. I believe that made sense for Glenn Close in the wife, but to say Curtis in “overdue” for an Oscar…February 27, 2023 at 12:12 pm #1205323065
Oh you gotta be trolling atp, if not you’re either clueless about her talent or just have no idea how these award shows work at all lol
I’m not trolling. We usually use the word overdue for people that have been nominated multiple times or even people who have been considered many times albeit failling to get the nominations (like some people say Jim Carrey is overdue). But Curtis is neither. She had never been nominated before and she hasn’t exactly been doing Oscar-worthy movies in which people think she was robbed of a nomination. So it’s odd to see people calling her overdue just because she has been in the industry for a long time.February 27, 2023 at 10:05 am #1205322507
Jamie I don’t think should win but she has a stronger overdue narrative than Angela imo and EEAAO it.
How can Jamie be overdue? This is her first nomination. We’re not talking about Glenn Close or Amy Adams.
What would Jamie even be overdue for? Freaky Friday and the Halloween sequels?February 27, 2023 at 10:01 am #1205322493
How can people twist things like this and just get it so fucking wrong? lmfao Anyway, if white nepo baby Jamie hadn’t been so passionate and enthusiastic (or “thirsty”/whatever you wanna call it) about the movie from the jump then it would have simply not enjoyed all the industry attention and subsequent award success that it’s had all around to begin with and the sooner y’all get this the sooner you’ll understand why she deserves all the respect her peers showered her with last night.
Just because she’s “enthusiastic” about the film does not merit a best supporting actress award. If she’s that enthusiast she’ll be just happy to see the film get recognized – which it definitely will, in multiple categories.
And yet, when I saw Curtis rushing to the stage and leaving her cast behind, grabbing the award and starting the acceptance speech, “enthusiastic” is not really the word I’d use to describe that. For her, the white woman, to start the acceptance speech for best ensemble for a mostly Asia cast, that was bad.Not now
