Roma is so boring.
Monty replied to the topic Morally speaking, do you agree with Roman Polanski's Best Director win in 2003? in the forum Movies 3 months, 2 weeks ago
The Pianist is one of my favorite movie of the decade. It should have won best picture as well.
2010 and 2019 are the best quartet. At least both leading performance (Portman, Firth, Zellweger, Phoenix) are really deserving of the wins.
But when it comes to best acting quartet, 1951 (Humphrey Bogart, Vivien Leigh, Karl Madsen, Kim Hunter) and 2007 (Daniel Day Lewis, Marion Cotillard, Jarvier Barden, Tilda Swinton) are really outstanding.

Right now we can say Golden Globe picture drama and BAFTA best film are the kisses of death for the best picture race
2014:Alejandro G. Iñárritu
2015:Alejandro G. Iñárritu
2017:Guillermo del Toro
Only one American director won directing in this decade.

No I don’t think so. Blanchett almost won in 1998 for Elizabeth but was a long shot in 2007.

I mean, Colman has GG + BAFTA going into the Oscar. It is the same combo in which Nicole Kidman, Marion Cotillard and Meryl Streep upset the SAG champ. It is still surprising but not surprise of the century.
I would go for Ex Machina winning visual effects, given the fact that Mad Max and Star War are in the category.
Best Picture: Inception
Best Director: Christopher Nolan (Inception)
Best Actor: Joaquin Phoenix (Joker)
Best Actress: Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine)
Best Supporting Actor: Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies)
Best Supporting Actress: Anne Hathaway (Les Miserables)
Best Original Story: Get Out

Monty replied to the topic What surprise 2020 Oscar win would you most like to see? in the forum Movies 3 months, 2 weeks ago
Johannson for Supporting Actress
1917 for original score
A few years ago we thought Mad Max (1917) or Star War (Avengers: End Game) is gonna win Visual Effects and then Ex Machina happened. This category could be really unpredictable. The Lion King/ the Irishman could be this year’s Ex Machina.
The toughest categories to predict are film editing, production design and visual effects. I wonder if the love for Parasite would be strong enough for a editing and production design win. Every nominee can win Visual Effects.
Monty replied to the topic This Year's Acting Frontrunners: Most Likely to Lose? in the forum Movies 3 months, 3 weeks ago
Likelihood of winning
Pitt > Phoenix > Dern > Zellweger
But I think all four of them will win their Oscar.
This year most of the categories are filled with 4-5 best picture nominees. That’s what make it so hard to predict.
Adapted Screeplay, Song, Score, Production Design, Costume Design, Film Editing and Visual Effects are hard to predict. We will see what BAFTA say.
