Darlings, no way is Joke losing that dildo. His ass is just too baity and over the top. The Oscars won’t resist to award him. Nose is not winning for getting divorced. As I said before, there aren’t the 70s.
If you’re whole argument hinges on Phoenix being too baity and over the top, then it’s not a very good argument. It wasn’t that long ago that we saw Denzel lose to Casey Affleck when the former’s performance was about fifty times more over the top and baity.
Also, do you not see the irony of posting all these smug and over confident comments with pictures a character who famously isn’t anywhere near as smart as she thinks she is?October 18, 2019 at 3:57 pm #1203143051
The Godfather is the first to come to my mind. The second to come to my mind is The Godfather Part II.
In my opinion, those are the greatest films ever made, with the stellar acting being one their strongest points.
The first two films managed to score 9 nominations for acting alone, and it can be argued that they deserved more as far as the second installment is concerned. Diane Keaton was just as good as Talia Shire, and John Cazale was clearly better than Lee Strasberg and Michael V. Gazzo (he’s great, but if any of the nominated performances were to miss out, it’s definitely his).October 18, 2019 at 12:00 pm #1203142710
I could either see them nominating it or snubbing it for Ford v Ferrari. It’s definitely gonna get nominated at the Globes and the Oscars, but it could miss out here. Bohemian Rhapsody didn’t get nominated for Best Picture last year at the Critics Choice and look what happened there.
Imagine Critics Choice actually had better taste than the Oscars when it came to Bohemian Rhapsody. Granted that’s only because no one in their right mind would expect Bohemian Rhapsody to be nominated for and win so many Oscars.October 18, 2019 at 10:37 am #1203142648
Not sure if this has been mentioned, but Frank Finlay was nominated in supporting for playing Iago while Laurence Olivier was nominated in lead for playing Othello in the same film, even though Iago is the show’s true main character despite also being its villain. Interestingly, Finlay had more lines (which I believe is true of all productions and adaptations, unless if they make significant cuts to Iago’s dialogue and leave Othello’s intact) while Olivier had slightly more screen time. The two of them should’ve been nominated in lead together. Also, while Kenneth Branagh wasn’t nominated for an Oscar when he played Iago, he was nominated at SAG in supporting.October 18, 2019 at 6:59 am #1203142389
Well I’ll give it credit, this is interesting. If Sikes were to be played by a woman, then Lena Headey is an excellent choice. Michael Caine should be good, but we all know nobody will ever top Ron Moody’s exceptional turn as Fagin. I’m not expecting this to be good, but the idea of changing and updating the story and characters doesn’t actually bother me all that much, since it’s a very old tale that’s been told many times before.October 17, 2019 at 9:34 pm #1203142038
But, you can count on one hand the number of writers who have the same kind of clout the great Chayefsky had. He was a genius, not that Tarantino isn’t also.
I think the original user was referring to Allen’s clout, but I’d say both have more than Tarantino. Although Tarantino has more than Allen today, as people now think of the latter as a creepy pervert, and most of his recent projects weren’t well received.October 17, 2019 at 7:39 pm #1203141918October 17, 2019 at 6:22 pm #1203141860
I keep going between Gerwig and Waititi for that fifth spot. I could definitely them making it up to her or snubbing her yet again.
Right now I think Gerwig will get in if she does poorly at the precursors, since I’m guessing people will react similarly to her snubs like they did last time, which definitely helped her get the nomination (which she deserved).October 17, 2019 at 6:12 pm #1203141854
Darlings, I totally agree. The HFPA will suck feminists’ dicks and will nominate Gerwig for Little Women’s infinite (but not last) remake. A nod is her win, because she’s terribly undeserving of being in that list, which she will make because she’s a woman and not because of her talent.
The movie’s not out, so unless if you caught an early screening, you have no right to say a nomination would be undeserving.October 17, 2019 at 5:52 pm #1203141837
I really hope Titus doesn’t win. His performance is good, but it’s nowhere near as impressive as the other nominees as his role is just a slightly exaggerated version of himself in contrast with the others having to transform into their characters (to varying degrees).October 17, 2019 at 1:47 pm #1203141573

I remember feeling really bad for Kevin Spacey when I first saw the trailer for Nine Lives.
I don’t feel bad anymore.October 17, 2019 at 1:21 pm #1203141555
I’ll admit, I don’t watch this show, but I find it very interesting how GoldDerby has warmed towards it over time, as I recall the first season got some pretty nasty comments on here that the later ones don’t seem to get. I also remember several users hating Justin Hartley at first, while now many people love his performance and believe he’s been unfairly snubbed. I don’t know if it’s because the show’s gotten better or people have just softened on it, but either way it’s nice.October 17, 2019 at 1:06 pm #1203141538
I don’t know a whole lot about American Son, but I do know that Washington didn’t get a Tony nomination for it, so while she may get Emmy nominated, I’m not predicting her to win.October 17, 2019 at 1:02 pm #1203141535
Anyway, I don’t believe it’s been mentioned, and that’s probably because most people didn’t think it would happen, but Michael McKean should have gotten into supporting actor. Also Better Call Saul should’ve gotten in for series.
