Johansson is going to become the frontrunner on December 6th when everyone sees her incredible performance.November 11, 2019 at 6:29 pm #1203175323
A lot of the greats have been mentioned here such as Network, All About Eve, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, etc.
I’ll throw out The Favourite as well. The performances from Colman, Stone, and Weisz were sensational.
The performances from Dustin Hoffman, Meryl Streep, and Justin Henry are also phenomenal in Kramer vs Kramer.
The Hours has incredible performances from a wonderful group of actors that includes Nicole Kidman, Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, Ed Harris, Allison Janney, Toni Collette, Margo Martindale, Claire Danes, John C Reilly, and many others.November 11, 2019 at 5:18 pm #1203175235
It doesn’t open anywhere near where I am until the 27th. And if I’m wrong about Thelma, then I’ve woken up in an alternate universe. Like Shrek ETA: your opinion on her work will have no relevance.
Ok, but her editing isn’t great and it’s hitting Netflix on the 27th, it’s not hitting theaters then. Her other work is good, but I didn’t like it here and I think I noticed several continuity issues.November 11, 2019 at 3:58 pm #1203175147
Still think it’s one of Dicaprio’s best performances. Had he not just won, I truly believe he’d be in the conversation for a win.November 11, 2019 at 12:55 pm #1203174892
I thought this was phenomenal, but Randy Newman’s score is horrendous. Did someone forget to tell him this wasn’t a Pixar movie?November 10, 2019 at 5:51 pm #1203173871
Margot Robbie having Oscar buzz for dancing and smiling in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is an absolute joke.November 10, 2019 at 5:39 pm #1203173860
I agree with Casey Affleck. Denzel acted circles around him. That August Wilson dialogue is insanely difficult and both him and Viola gave masterclass performances.
Also, Yalitza really wasn’t great. Cuarón filmed half the film with her back to the camera for a reason.November 9, 2019 at 9:02 am #1203172455

Resentful Toni didn’t factor in the final five I see.
Never expected her to, although she should’ve been. I was team Colman all the way. One of the best performances of the decade.
Nice try though.November 9, 2019 at 8:46 am #1203172436
Glenn Close in The Wife. Shouldn’t have even been nominated. I’d even rate Gaga’s perfectly “meh” performance before Close’s mediocre attempt. The way she desperately tried to ride that overdue narrative like her life depended on it… I HAVE TO LAUGH. She even wore gold!

To the people who saw The Irishman – is it worth watching at the cinema or should I just wait for Netflix and pause/toilet/alcohol breaks? Is it particularly visually stunning?
Wait for Netflix. It was painful in the theater. I could feel my eyes glaze over and my kidneys shut down at about the 2 1/2 hour mark.
Is it visually stunning? No. It’s got the usual bad Netflix cinematography.November 9, 2019 at 8:22 am #1203172408
Randy Newman will make it in and I would disagree with the score not being in your face. It’s pretty in your face, somewhat to a fault.November 8, 2019 at 9:44 pm #1203172002
Well, it’s not my fault that sitting on the movie longer has undermined Phoenix’s performance for me. Blame that awful script. Ledger didn’t have that problem and he gave a top 5 performance of all time for me, so it was going to be tough for Phoenix to beat him regardless.
I thought Phoenix was brilliant on a first watch, but on my second viewing I found his performance to be painfully overacted.
