How can anyone forget that Sharon Stone is an oscar nominee? Her performance/character in Casino is one of the most iconic of the 90s.

At the end of every month I update my Letterboxd profile and bookmark the top four I’ve watched in the last 30 days. These are the four best ones I’ve seen in December:
The wages of fear (1953)
Soy Cuba (1964)
They shoot horses, don’t they? (1969)
Farewell my concubine (1993)

Thinking that Zendaya is ‘overexposed’ is not an unpopular opinion. And actors being ‘forced down our throats’ is not something new, the industry has always done that, the concept of movie star/it girl/it boy is not something new.

2015 saw two of the biggest frauds be successful. WINNER:Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) Rooney Mara (Carol) Both had more screentime than lead nominated Redmayne and Blanchett. I feel bad for Kirsten Dunst, Rachel McAdams, Helen Mirren, Kate Winslet and Judy Davis, Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina) (The REAL SUPPORTING ACTRESSES)
Um, which Dunst performance are you talking about? Because she didn’t have any movies in 2015.
You’re probably mistaking her with Kristen Stewart (Cloud of Sils Maria).

Like most of the critics and film twitter seem to have got behind Carey Mulligan now (myself included) but this isn’t because anyone thinks she gives a performance for the ages. It’s because we’ve all seen her doing incredible work for years and she’s in a really zeitgeisty movie that evokes a lot of passion. For me, it’s the weakest year since 2009, which is ironic given that’s the last time Mulligan was nominated.
Weaker than 2011?

This year the frauds are worse than in 2015, after all, in 2015 there were only two. This year it was FOUR.
But I think Mara’s fraud was worse because the studio decided to campaign for supporting actress, in the case of Lakeith, the studio campaigned for lead actor, but for some reason the academy decided to opt for the fraud.

Every time I see people talking about the Oscar winning films and performances that they hate, it’s clear that many have never seen most of the award-winning films released before the 90s.
There are MUCH worse winners than the ones you all hate …

Rebecca Hall: She should have a bigger career, she is extremely talented.
Mia Wasikowska: She had a good career at the beginning of the decade, but she needs a comeback.
Kristen Stewart: She managed to build good filmography after the end of the Twilight franchise.
Carey Mullingan: One of the best of her generation, after a decade of building solid filmography, will finally receive a second nomination.
Amanda Seyfried: She never fully reached her potential, maybe that will change after Mank.
Emma Stone: She managed to build a good filmography since 2014 and won an Oscar.
Anna Kendrick: She wastes her potential with mediocre films, but she has had a good number of box office hits.
Evan Rachel Wood: It’s not that relevant in the cinema, but it’s doing well on TV.
Abbie Cornish: I don’t follow her career.

I don’t care so much about the fact that Lady Gaga received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for ‘A Star is Born’. She was fine. There have been several far worse performances that have been nominated in the past decade. If any other actress had played this role instead of her and delivered a performance at the same level, many people would not have criticized in the same way that they criticize.
Christian Bale should stop making so many physical changes, I can barely remember when he last delivered a performance that impressed me. And he should start making more diverse and interesting choices as he did in the early 2000s, in that decade ‘The Fighter’ is the only good movie he made, the rest is average or mediocre.

It is not necessarily a performance that I consider one of the worst winners in the category, but Ingrid Bergman winning by ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ was a random choice. If I’m not mistaken, she even said that she doesn’t think she deserved that Oscar hahahaha.
If anyone was going to win an Oscar for this film, it should have been Lauren Bacall, she was great in that role.

Timotheé is a leading actor, while Lucas is a character actor, as are Jamie Bell, Nicholas Hoult, Barry Keoghan etc. He will probably have a long career ahead of him, but he will not be considered for the same roles as Thimothée. He will probably do better in low-budget art house films.
