Oscars Shortlist comes out December 16th.September 26, 2019 at 12:48 pm #1203105503
2017 was the worst year for Animated movies in a long time though. The academy were desperate to fill 5 slots that year. I still have no idea how The Lego Batman Movie missed out though. Also, Ferdinand was pretty good in my opinion.
The Academy snubbing the original Lego Movie told me never to expect a nominee for legos in this category.September 26, 2019 at 10:41 am #1203105043
Right now, going off of what I have seen my vote would be for How To Train Your Dragon: The Lost World.September 24, 2019 at 9:07 am #1203099919
Also if I were to tell someone five years ago both Jennifer Lopez and Adam Sandler would deliver critically aclaimed performances in critically acclaimed movies and gain award tractions in the same year, I would be laughed at and called insane!
What if I told you five years ago that there would be three Netflix films heavily in the Best Picture race with one of them directed by Martin Scorsese?September 24, 2019 at 7:35 am #1203099756
Eh, I would rather see the Academy consolidate some categories instead of splitting/adding categories.September 18, 2019 at 1:01 pm #1203084965
At which ceremony? Is it confirmed they’re presenting at an awards ceremony or are you just saying you think that’s happening? And since when did coming onstage to present an award mean that something’s a done deal. And by done deal, what do you even mean? Are you saying Lopez being nominated is a done deal? Are you saying her winning is a done deal? Are you talking about the film’s awards chances in general being a done deal? This is an extremely ambiguous comment. Anyway, while on the topic of Hustlers, it may be able to break through into supporting actress and adapted screenplay, but it has no chance of winning either.
I was referring to the Oscars since this is an Oscars thread. The comment was slightly joking but given how the film has been publicly received, I wouldn’t be surprised to see them on stage carrying an envelope. The cast of Bridesmaids did it a few years back.
You read way too much into my post buddy.September 18, 2019 at 12:35 pm #1203084888
You know the cast of Hustlers are coming on stage to present an award this year. It is a done deal.September 17, 2019 at 7:27 am #1203082070
This seems to be the year (at least in the US) where original animated films flop and sequels are all the rage.September 17, 2019 at 7:23 am #1203082061
I haven’t seen any of them (I am no one special or involved with the industry. I just wait around hoping I get to see them before Oscars Sunday), but going by the buzz I have read I think these are the front runners.
- Pain and Glory
- Weathering with You
- Portrait of a Lady on Fire

I’ve only seen 23 films on the list. There are a bunch on there that are on my “want to watch list”September 13, 2019 at 8:52 am #1203072904
My only response is this.
“I am an oil man.”September 12, 2019 at 7:29 am #1203070959
I agree with the sentiment here. Supporting for sure.September 12, 2019 at 6:38 am #1203070814
I saw The Farewell this week and loved it. Realistically, I could see it getting up to: Picture Director Orig Screenplay (definitely feels like a winner here) Actress Score Do people think it could get any more? I’d love it but it seems doubtful.
I’m not ruling anything out for The Farewell at this time. That film was a crowd pleaser. I saw it twice and both times I left the theater there was a good buzz. Hopefully it grabs more than just a screenplay nom.September 11, 2019 at 2:33 pm #1203069864
Define major nominations? In the past three years, Netflix has received nominations in acting, screenplay, cinematography, and director/picture along with other technical categories.
Getting nominations is (fairly) easy. Getting the wins will be completely different. The Irishman, Marriage Story, and Two Popes are primed to get some big nominations. The Laundromat could sneak in an acting nominee. Klaus and I’ve Lost my Body will contend for the animated category.
This will be a very interesting year for Netflix and the academy.
