I too believe she deserved both awards. Both performances are exquisite. If I had to choose, I would choose her performance in GWTW over her performance in ASND. That one truly blew me away. I might be prejudiced though, seeing I saw GWTW more recently.

I hope France submits Le Chant Du Loup (The Wolf’s Call), a very entertaining movie with Omar Sy. Not typical Oscar material, but I can hope.
Brian Tyree Henry was mesmerizing in If Beale Street Could Talk. He only popped up for a second, but his conversation with the main character is fantastic and Henry completely owns it.
Hans Zimmer’s score for Dark Phoenix is brilliant. It won’t be nominated due to Dark Phoenix’ box office results alone, but it would be definitely worthy of a…[Read more]
Interesting question. After receiving acclaim for Your Name, I could see Makoto Shinkai’s Weathering With You getting in for Best International Film. I however haven’t looked into its competition. Parasite is a shoe-in, but who knows. There might be room for Weathering With You.
Gone with the Wind (1939) (without music): 221 minutes (3 hours, 41 minutes). With Overture, Intermission, Entr’acte and Walkout Music: 234 minutes (3 hours, 54 minutes.

I’ve been brushing up on my 1939, watching Stagecoach and Gone With the Wind the last two days. I’m very happy to have finally seen these classics.
Regarding both, I happen to accidentally stumble upon Thomas Mitchell many times. He’s a marvelous supporting actor, pulling the best performances out of his costars. I’m glad he won his Oscar for…[Read more]

Sad to hear about Finney. Loved his performance, especially his fantastic monologue, in Murder on the Orient Express.

Palmboom replied to the topic For Best Picture in the future, how many nominees would you prefer? in the forum Movies 9 months ago
What do you think the bar should be? A certain rating (x+ out of 10/ x+ out of 5) or something else?
I have Blunt in Best Actress in the fifth slot.
I’m struggling with Makeup. Vice is winning, it’s this year’s Darkest Hour.
Black Panther I can see being nominated.
I’ve got Border in the last spot, but Stan & Ollie is giving me trouble.
Palmboom replied to the topic Why The Hell Are The Oscar Nominations Announced At 5:30AM Anyway? in the forum Movies 9 months ago
The Oscars are from 2 – 5/6 am here, the nominations at 2:30 pm. Nice change of pace with the nominations, although watching the Oscars in the peace of the night is great.
Very curious to see what will happen, let’s see if Cooper can double his nominations overall (from 4 to 8). Cuáron should be able to make it to 10 overall.
