Sophie’s Choice and Kramer v. Kramer
maybe supporting for Devil Wears Prada—I need to study the other nominees that year.
I wanted Viola Davis to win for The Help when Meryl won for Iron Lady, so definitely not that one.April 11, 2020 at 8:29 am #1203420706
Bette Davis in All About Eve
For me, this is the best performance by an actress to not win the Oscar.April 9, 2020 at 7:33 am #1203417447
Viola’s speech was wonderful—thank you for including the text. I really loved Roger Deakins’ speech when he won cinematography the first time for Blade Runner 2049.
Ingrid Bergman’s “it’s always nice to win an Oscar” or something like that is quite memorable, too. That’s when she won her third Oscar (supporting actress in Murder on the Orient Express).
When I watch the speeches from yesterday, I remember Frank Sinatra running up the aisle when he won for best supporting actor in From Here to Eternity, Grace Kelly’s “the thrill of this moment keeps me from saying what I really feel..,” and Marlon Brando’s Waterfront “it’s much heavier than I imagined.”March 16, 2020 at 6:57 am #1203382746
Homeland is so brilliant. I am watching it while I am off work for 3 or more weeks due to COVID-19 school closures.February 26, 2020 at 5:29 pm #1203361972
Viola Davis in The Help losing to Meryl Streep in Iron Lady
Chris Terrio’s Argo screenplay beating Tony Kushner’s Lincoln
I am still also annoyed that Linklater didn’t get an Oscar for Boyhood. Social Network should have won Best Picture and Director, or at least one of them.February 10, 2020 at 1:05 pm #1203341969
I just saw the question, “What are possibilities of Joaquin Phoenix winning Best Actor for Joker?”
Pretty darn good. 🙂 Sorry, I simply had to. I amused myself.January 16, 2020 at 1:07 pm #1203288060
She won the New York Film Critics Award and had the year that most actresses only dream of. (Rear Window, etc.) I read that she chose Rear Window over Eva Marie Saint’s part in On the Waterfront
Country Girl was very popular and may have been the number #2 that year. I think it was up for director, screenplay, actor, and other awards.
I love Grace so much. I’ve read every available book about her and seen all her movies and the documentary Children of Theatre Street.January 13, 2020 at 12:44 pm #1203281950
My highest priority wins are Brad Pitt for Supporting Actor, Quentin Tarantino for Original Screenplay, and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood for picture.
I also wish Margot Robbie could win for Bombshell and Irishman for Adapted Screenplay.January 5, 2020 at 6:57 pm #1203263298
Yes, I thought of Veep, too. Four-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks!January 3, 2020 at 2:53 pm #1203258476
I loved Margot Robbie’s supporting actress performances this year. I know she’s probably not going to win, but I can’t say enough good things about her going back to I Tonya and Wolf of Wall Street. I might even go back and rent Z for Zachariah.
I think Jennifer gets the Globe but Dern gets the rest. I could be wrong.January 3, 2020 at 1:35 pm #1203258378

Lupita has the backstory and the “charming at acceptance speeches” factors in her favor. She is so winning this. Perhaps at the Oscars JLaw can skip preparing an acceptance speech and just devote herself to shushing and comforting David O. Russell when AH loses all those nominations.
This is so catty, but it made me smile. Right now I am predicting AH to be shut out. How sweet it is, even though I probably will change Original Screenplay in the end anyway. Wonder if Russell would have a face like he did at the BAFTAs last year.
