I think you’re making it sound more difficult than it actually is. Just think of all the musical theatre actors out there. Plenty of people can project humor and intelligence into their singing. The fact that Chalamet won’t even have to sound good but just act while singing takes away a challenge. I’m not saying playing Bob Dylan will be easy, but a good actor like Chalamet can definitely get it done.
those “plenty of people” didn’t become bob dylan for a reason, there’s a difference between singing to showcase humor and intelligence, and singing that naturally reflects the person behind the voice that possesses those qualities, subtle difference but it could make or break the performance.
although if we’re sticking to the theme of the thread, it’s not like voters are that particular about the quality of musical sequences, so if everything else works out for him, he’ll get his biopic oscar in time to break brody’s record even if he doesn’t get the singing rightJanuary 24, 2020 at 6:52 pm #1203303221
The post above actually had a long, in-depth explanation as to why Rami Malek’s lip syncing was super well done and earned the film it’s Sound Oscars. You just said it was bad; there was no explaining.
re. the paragraph they quoted that I had deleted because I do not wish to be lured into more conversations about that performance
I will admit I didn’t see At Eternity’s Gate, but who did?
well he was by far the best in that category, your lossJanuary 24, 2020 at 5:58 pm #1203303151
what’s the point of a fixed timeline if you’re still going off the same candidatesJanuary 24, 2020 at 5:55 pm #1203303143
what was I thinking trying to explain good lip syncing to straight fanboys anyway, just let that tragic win rest in the pastJanuary 24, 2020 at 9:49 am #1203302455
Can he even sing? Wait, he doesn’t really have to because Dylan couldn’t carry a tune.
looooool! I do consider dylan a great singer, but the main strengths of his vocals are the humor and intelligence he projects, the sort of thing a truly great actor might be able to embody, but I doubt chalamet is up to the task, despite my fondness for himJanuary 24, 2020 at 9:26 am #1203302405
He’s been in flop after flop.
fair point but strange to say when the only one of his flops to have received any proper push from the studio was beautiful boy, and let’s face it amazon has been pretty garbage in the oscar campaign game, that’s not gonna remain the case when he already had a hit with little women, and the wes anderson film coming this yearJanuary 24, 2020 at 12:33 am #1203301988
the thing is, malek’s lip syncing was bad, like if I see him at a drag bar I won’t even throw a dollar out of politeness bad, egerton’s singing wasn’t the most impressive thing, but it was my favorite thing about his overly hammy performanceJanuary 23, 2020 at 6:29 pm #1203301613
y’all heard smth?
ms. norbury should keep this nonsense and go back to drug pushingJanuary 23, 2020 at 2:35 pm #1203301025
billie’s record is the sort of aesthetic-defining work that would be hard to deny, not that I particularly count on the voters to acknowledge that, swift and grande would make fine winners, but their win won’t be nearly as memorable as the billie loss that comes with itJanuary 23, 2020 at 1:10 pm #1203300691
I do think the brody record will be broken within a few years but not by him, they’re gonna grind him a bit while someone, maybe an unknown, gets it out of the left-fieldJanuary 23, 2020 at 10:33 am #1203300389
rumors have been mainly about the new format they’ve taken on not panning out as expected in the edit
