Little Woman not even released yet, how this flopped? Kind of early to say that, no?December 10, 2019 at 6:53 pm #1203229978
I actually believe that the Golden Globe nomination may not have been good for Todd Phillips, thinking of his chances at the Oscar.
I think we can consider that Scorsese, Bong, Tarantino and Mendes are locks, right? And this thing of not having any women in the category makes a lot of noise, we saw it yesterday… And I think that the Academy is looking to this.
Really can’t believe that the Academy, knowing this big backlash, won’t will nominate a woman. They will. It will be Greta Gerwig, like they did in 2018 (she also misses in GG nomination that year, which had a great backlash, as we now – Hey, Natalie Portman).
So, the weakest link in these 2019 GG nominees for Best Director is Todd Phillips. He probably will be the Martin McDonagh of this year. Before I was considering a possible snub for Tarantino, but now, I find it very unlikely. He is been strong on this awards season.December 8, 2019 at 2:45 pm #1203224876
𝔼𝕎 AWARDS ACEC@ErickWeber 7 de dez
Some very good news for #Joker fans, spoke with multiple @TheAcademy voters last night, *all of them had it in their top films, one longtime member listed #JokerMovie as his #1 overall film, seeing it some 8X, telling me “if Joaquin doesn’t win best actor, it’ll be criminal”December 8, 2019 at 10:50 am #1203223961
Can Uncut Gems surprise at Oscar nominations?
Seems to me it is growing right now in this awards season. I can’t wait to see it.December 7, 2019 at 1:01 pm #1203221932
Although it hurts me to say that, Pesci is being pretty overrated at moment.
It must be the “subtle> showy” bullshit and also the fact he’s coming back from retirement playing a factor here.December 5, 2019 at 10:02 pm #1203219604
Sandman is getting stronger day by day, huh? He will be nominated, as I predicted months ago.November 30, 2019 at 10:17 am #1203209427
What’s the deal with this stupid myth that a showy performance automatically means no or almost none subtlety or nuance? Where did your guys get that from? I have the impression that some people consider a more reserved performance is naturally better, deeper and more difficult than a more showy one, which is laughable. This’s not true at all, there is no rule about it.
Pacino’s performance has MANY nuances and subtleties, even more than Pesci (an amazing performance too), I’d say. Although he is extremely energetic and charismatic, he shows, at key moments, a subtle vulnerability and even fear in his Jimmy Hoffa. The Frank Tribute dinner scene is the best example of this. Pay attention to his voice and expressions in the conversation with Frank.
Pesci also has many nuances and subtleties, but this side of Russell is much more apparent and evident. It is clear from the beginning that the character hides things, is more reserved e etc. This, naturally, creates a subtlety for the character that Pesci exploits very well, but it’s a more obvious subtlety. You get what I mean? And with Jimmy Hoffa, Pacino exploits a hidden and unexpected subtlety.
This “showy performance? No subtlety or nuance then” nonsense has also been used to devalue Joaquin’s Joker performance. It’s such a stupid and false criticism.November 29, 2019 at 9:33 am #1203208015

My bold prediction of the season: Todd Phillips will be nominated for best director.
After the legend Michael Mann wrote a fucking letter praising Joker and Phillips, I’ve been thinking about this and realized that some relevant and influential artists expressed their admiration for the movie: Lucrecia Martel, Taylor Hackford, Michael Moore, Greta Gerwig, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Sean Baker, Jessica Chastain, Josh Brolin… This could mean nothing in terms of awards (after all, I only cited 8 people, lol)? Sure, but it’s undeniable the strong support for Joker exists among relevant artist (people who are member of The Academy, by the way), and it’s remarkable. Hell, even among critics (who supposed hates Joker), Phillips was ranked in second for best director in Toronto this year, only behind Bong Joon Ho.
I don’t know, it’s a feeling … I just have the impression that the movie is more loved than we think in the industry. And I can’t help but think about the famous “silent majority” of the Academy. This silent majority seems likes to send a “fuck you critics”, as we saw with Green Book and Bohemian Raphsody last year. This controversy about Joker being too dangerous and violent seems to me that, in the end, it will contribute more positively than negatively for the film (The biggest reason for this is that, well … No massacre or violence happened because of the movie, wichs makes this controversy seems fabricated by the media).November 16, 2019 at 1:24 pm #1203182305
After seeing The Irishman yesterday, I have to ask… How the fuck Robert De Niro isn’t being considered as one of the frontrunners?
I know he’s getting praise, but not enough (the majority is going to Pesci and Pacino)… Serious, it’s a extremely powerfull performance, and I don’t remember the last time that I was so touched by a performance. The last 30 minutes of the movie is De Niro in his best. He conveys so much truth in his trembling words, in his melancholy look…
De Niro in The Irishman is my favorite piece of acting of 2019. And this is from someone who absolute love Joker and, of course, the Joaquin performance.November 16, 2019 at 8:22 am #1203182036
Saw The Irishman last night. I’m speechless.
It’s the best movie of the year. Scorsese did it again.October 24, 2019 at 6:31 pm #1203151541
In all fairness, Manchester was marginally more popular than Fences. One made just over 60 million at box office, the other made 70 something. “Overdue narrative” not always works, as we’ve seen newbie Rami Malek win over 4 times nominee Bradley Cooper and also 4 times nominee Willem Dafoe this year. Not to mention Glenn Close. We also do not know how much of a hit Marriage Story will be. Sure, it will not be a box office hit like Joker, after all is a Netflix movie that will have a limited release, but it might get a big audience on Netflix and be talked about, like some other Netflix original movies that became hits.
Cooper has multiple nominations, yeah, but he’s not a overdue yet. Dafoe? Yes, but his movie was very small, without any hype. He never had chances.
But hey, who gave the loudest and transformative performance? Rami.
I would say that Colman also give the loudest performance among females nominated… And she won too.
So, Joaquin has the “overdue narrative”, a movie with immense popularity and a louder performance. He meets all requirements.October 24, 2019 at 3:46 pm #1203151321
Lol. Gotta love when people say statements like these with absolutely NOTHING to back it up. Just because you post it on GoldDerby doesn’t make it true? Driver is beloved in the industry and gives a performance tons of actors will relate to. He’ll get plenty of praise.
And where I said that he’s not beloved or don’t will get a plenty of praise? Calm down… Yes, he is respected and is receiving a lot of praise for MS.
But Joaquin is a bigger name (with the “overdue” narrative in his side), in a acclaimed and bigger performance and a movie that is already a phenomenon in pop culture.
Yes, in 2016 Denzel was a bigger name than Casey and give a bigger, loud, performance. But Manchester by the sea was even more popular than Fences and Denzel didn’t have the “overdue” narrative with him.October 23, 2019 at 8:58 pm #1203149943
Serious praises for Joaquin here. No way Driver will have this same level of reception from people of industry. He can win the awards from critics, as Joker is far from unanimous among them, but the Oscar (and SAG)? I think only a disaster can stop Phoenix.
