Some disappointments but overall, I wish this was the Oscar lineup. Strong showing for Knives Out, Parasite, Us and Endgame.
Anyway, I voted for everything Parasite except for Song (Harriet) and Production (OUATIH)

I don’t get the hype.

Bring back the glory days. I thought Skyfall would restart it but some of the recent winners didn’t even hit Billboard Top 40
I fell asleep after a while and when I woke up, I have no idea what’s going on. The first part wasn’t engaging. There were random shots of trees or something growing right?
Anyway, this isn’t the first time I heard praise thrown for this film. I’ll watch it again now that time has passed, and then I’ll see if I have been proven wrong.
Tbh, I didn’t like the film so much but I definitely remember Parfitt and Plummer’s performances. I too don’t know why it isn’t recognized. Maybe regardless of the plot and tone, because it was a King film not set in a prison, people didn’t care much….

Joaquin Phoenix’ character is an aspiring comedian, who actually got to do one gig (maybe two if we count that talk show).
Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh were actors as kids in that film, but yeah, I guess it’s not their real professions.
