Luca Giliberti is a Contributing Writer, movie and television lover, and an awards fanatic. He earned bragging rights by coming in second at predicting the 2018 Emmy nominations. He jumped up and down when Viola Davis (“HTGAWM”) won her first Emmy, cried tears of happiness when Darren Criss (“Versace”) won his, and shouted “Praise be!” when Ann Dowd (“The Handmaid’s Tale”) finally received hers. He will never forgive Oscar voters for denying Timothée Chalamet (“Call Me By Your Name”) Best Lead Actor at the 2018 Oscars – one his all-time favorite performances. Oh, and he’s still waiting for Lena Headey to win that Emmy for “Game of Thrones.” He loves Viola Davis and won’t apologize for wanting her to win every award.

Moss was brilliant and would make a worthy nominee, despite her limited screen time.
Oh absolutely. If I had a ballot, I’d check her off. IMO one the best actresses working today. Her range is truly unbelievable.

Between Shahadi and Elizabeth, if one were to be nominated, who do you feel would get the nomination for supporting? Shahadi has more screen time, a great performance, and amazing emotion in her acting. Elizabeth has limited screen time but when she was on screen her performance made my theater speechless, lmao of you get it you get it. Of course Elizabeth is a better actress with having multiple years on Shahadi but having more time in the movie could boost shahadis chances. I know it is unlikely that either gets nominated but the Oscars have been known to nominate stranger and undeserving things… so who knows they might be a surprise nomination.
I’d easily say Moss because she’ll be in two other movies this year + she has Handmaid’s S3 airing during the summer.
But even then, she isn’t getting nominated. This isn’t the type of performance the academy likes to reward, especially in such a stacked year.

Ikr. Let’s hope they watch ep 2 too. King’s mirror scene is simply an Oscar clip.
That really broke my heart. Just wow.

Not predicting any THT supporting actresses seem either extremely biased or just a bit premature IMO. Especially when you have Garner and Brown ahead of them.
Aunt Lydia will have her own episode in season 3, so hopefully Dowd returns.March 24, 2019 at 11:15 am #1202827840
Agreed. Also, is just me who’s impressed with Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre’s direction, the way she treated the house was extraordinary. Similar to Reed Morano in 2017 we can see her breaking in as a female director.
I think the direction is solid. It probably won’t make the cut at the Emmys because it isn’t flashy enough. The limited/ movie directing category is very, very strong this year. If the Act is extremely popular, then it’s a whole different thing.March 24, 2019 at 10:39 am #1202827816
So, I’ve just seen the first two episodes of The Act. If voters watch it, I can’t imagine:
1. them nominating Arquette but not King. Both are sublime.
2. Patricia Clarkson winning Supporting Actress. I loved SO and liked her performance but Arquette has the meatier and showier performance. Plus, she’s actually a co-lead. It’s kind of funny though since their characters are pretty similarMarch 24, 2019 at 7:52 am #1202827619
$67M, people. This is huge!March 23, 2019 at 10:13 am #1202826899
So, irrelevant, but I really wanna see this, and I was planning to watch it tomorrow night, but none of my friends are remotely interested in seeing it. Is it embarrassing to go in the cinema and watch it on my own? lmao
Absolutely not. It’s fine to go by yourselfMarch 23, 2019 at 8:17 am #1202826796
Almost 30M on Friday. This is huge!!!March 23, 2019 at 5:17 am #1202826623
“Us” seems to have gotten a “B” CinemaScore, which is disappointing. I feel like some people will go and watch, not get it, and say it’s a bad movie. This movie requires rewatches and analysis videos.
I am starting to fear that future movies will be so conventional, so simple, so generic to please mainstream audiences. That would be the death of movies.March 22, 2019 at 12:33 pm #1202826013
https://deadline.com/2019/03/us-jordan-peele-weekend-box-office-1202580617/ Us made $7.4 million last night, more than A Quiet Place, The Nun, and Get Out on their Thursday previews. This is going to be a hit for sure.
So well deserved.March 22, 2019 at 10:42 am #1202825873
Fuck You Luca Giliberti… stupid cunt
Just to clarify, I don’t want people to block you or so, but I don’t think it’s fair to ruin this thread by practically attacking people for loving the movie. You didn’t love it, we get it. No one is telling you that you should. For you to call all fans “stupid stans” who are forcing themselves to like the movie is… wrong. What if a new user came to this site and wanted to talk about “Us?” If I were them and I opened this thread, I’d leave as quickly as I opened it. I’m also sorry for having to post this because I don’t want to go OT, but it was necessary.March 22, 2019 at 10:15 am #1202825831
Is this thread about Us or Kord Dkt? Just ignore him and post about the film, it’s getting annoying because he’s clearly trolling.
I mean this seriously, please do exactly this. Otherwise we won’t be able to talk about the movie properly, which would be sad.March 22, 2019 at 9:59 am #1202825784
Viola deserved every single one of her nomination and should have been nominated (as a lead) last year and this year as well.
Preach.March 22, 2019 at 5:37 am #1202825528
There is so much to unpack here, but for now:
The “Fuck the police” scene KILLLED me. I died. I couldn’t stop laughing.
And holy moly, Elisabeth Moss in that entire scene. That silent scream gave me chills. Please cast her in more movies.
