Ah I get it now. Not knowing any of that, it’s not a bad movie. I felt for JD’s character throughout the whole thing. That last scene he had with his mother? So damn sad.
And the two actresses really looked like the people their characters are based on.

Where did she say this? Watched all of this and I would’ve voted for Montenegro too.
Get well soon, Wolfali!
Kinda late on this but Cotillard and Huppert got in for movies not nominated in Best Foreign Film. Loren can still happen if the Academy really wants her to happen.
Ok um… unpopular opinion, I guess.
Watching Hillbilly Elegy now… and I actually like these performances. Granted, I haven’t seen most (all?) of the other contenders anyway, but it’s not as bad as reviews make it seem.
EDIT: It was the first movie on my screen when I checked the app.

Was hoping for Kalel, 15 but whatever… Praying for the best.
Damn. I’m shook The Life Ahead didn’t get chosen.
Today, I count any one-episode one-hour long film in streaming sites as a movie.
I’d just reiterate Behind the Candelabra and Game Change as my strong contenders.
I think Moore would even be competitive for a win.
Of the performances I did watch (saw almost all of them from 1990 to today)
Fine with all of them
Emma Thompson, Howards End
Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side
Tommy Lee Jones, The Fugitive
Michael Caine, The Cider House Rules
Christopher Plummer, Beginners
Christoph Waltz, Django Unchained
Mahershala Ali,…[Read more]

Is it possible for all 5 nominees to be from chicago 7? Lol. Haven’t seen any of the other contenders but it’d be a whole new statistic if that happens.
L Hawks replied to the topic What year had the most surprises in the acting races? in the forum Movies 4 days, 18 hours ago
…so basically, none since social media and the Internet became huge. That ruined any element of surprise since people can pretty much predict all sorts of scenarios.
Marina de Tavira’s nomination is the biggest shock I’ve ever had in a while.
Man, it doesn’t happen every single year the last decade but for most of them, there is always at least one performance not primarily in English. That’s why I’m thinking Loren is gonna make that cut. Power to her!

I’ll ask it here because the thread is about to close…
Does anyone know when the prediction center will open up the rest of the categories?
Um. Just wanna randomly say that I remember people were saying that year how Lady Gaga actually reads these forums, and that she’d say “water” in her Oscar speech if she wins.
Lol. And she really did!!!!
So if you’re reading this, Gaga, if you are still here…. hiiiiiiiii. Love u. Lol.

GUYS, is Ronan still really a possibility here?
The foolish optimist in me wishes the actress from Minari makes it in, but I just know I’ll be hella disappointed.
I don’t even know. I have Seyfried, Colman, most likely Close……. and that’s pretty much it.
Chose Burstyn because people here said she was awesome in her movie.
L Hawks replied to the topic Do you intend on watching EVERY Oscar acting nominee ever? in the forum Movies 1 week, 2 days ago
Lmfao. I bow to all of you. I had that phase around 2017 and i stopped at 1989. The lead actresses are barely even leads in their movies anymore and it was just way tooooo much.
Probably around 2045, people would be grateful for our recent noms because one movie typically get two actors represented. Less shows to watch.
Rocket to the Moon is cool but that song Extraluminary or Ultraluminary or something is way catchier. Why does it always have to be the slow song?!?!
Is Soul gonna be released only in Disney+?
