My prediction: Michelle Yeoh will do very well at the precursors. She’ll win at least one, maybe two, of the major critics prizes, get the Golden Globe (Musical/Comedy) nomination (maybe even win) and a SAG nomination….then get snubbed at the last minute.March 29, 2022 at 9:42 pm #1204889246
They didn’t take away Roman Polanski’s and Harvey Weinstein’s Oscars, so no. His Academy membership? Future invites to Academy ceremonies and events? Maybe.March 24, 2022 at 1:09 am #1204872672

Marisa Tomei in My Cousin Vinny. Quite possibly one of the most out there nomination. A then relatively unknown actress getting nominated for a broad comedy released early in the year with no precursor support? AND she won?!? Crazy! Nothing similar has ever happened since.March 14, 2022 at 9:06 pm #1204850774
I’ve seen every Best Picture winner. The worst by far is Cavalcade. I’ve disliked a bunch of Best Picture winners but at least I understood why they won, even and including Crash. Cavalcade, on the other hand, is a film whose victory I do not understand at all. It’s basically Downton Abbey with all the interesting parts taken out. To make it even worse, I’ve seen some of the films it was up against and all of them would’ve made far better Best Picture winners as well.March 14, 2022 at 8:02 pm #1204850675

1. I would have them present all 23 categories at the Oscars. NO EXCEPTIONS.
2. I would put the Honorary Oscars back into the main telecast.
3. All nominated songs will be performed on the telecast.
4. I will use social media to generate interest on the NOMINEES. Celebrate them as much as possible by hyping ALL of them up all the way to the ceremony.
5. You can engage the audience at home while celebrating the nominees. For instance, you can hold a contest where an ordinary person can participate at the Oscars by submitting a video saying why this one Best Picture nominee is their favorite film of last year and pick the best one as the presentation reel.
6. The host should not only be funny but also a film buff: Conan O’Brien, Patton Oswalt, Bill Hader, just to name a few.February 23, 2022 at 10:36 pm #1204815501
I think the backlash has been strong enough that they will backtrack on this idea or at the very least come up with compromise that will suck a little less.February 10, 2022 at 12:33 am #1204793726
Is anyone else watching Murderville? Will it be submitting as a Comedy Series or a Variety Sketch Series? Either way, Will Arnett can submit in the Lead Actor in a Comedy category, right?May 11, 2021 at 2:16 am #1204250459
They could still release a list of nominees and announce winners even without a ceremony.May 10, 2021 at 8:57 pm #1204250305
I’m curious to see Lily Gladstone in this. She’s a great actress. Although her character will obviously die in the movie.
Having read the book, (SPOILER) she doesn’t (at least not during the main events depicted in the film).
As for supporting vs. lead: It depends on how they adapt it. Gladstone, De Niro, DiCaprio and Plemons could go either way. It really depends on how Scorsese and the screenwriters choose to tackle the story. But definitely pencil in Gladstone and De Niro for awards. They’ve got the best roles since they will be the characters you will love the most (Gladstone) and hate the most (De Niro)May 10, 2021 at 8:28 pm #1204250280
If Killers of the Flower Moon is released this year, pencil in Lily Gladstone and Robert De Niro in for acting prizes. Having read the book, I say they have the most awards potential, juiciest roles in the film, well, depending on how they adapt it.May 10, 2021 at 8:19 pm #1204250270
Well, the more people in hollywood bitching about award shows the likely the Oscars will be next. Imagine no more award shows and less platforms for celebrities lecturing the viewers or general public about equality.
I guess it’s better that way.
