This show is unbelievably unbelievable. Least creative group of writers ever. The finale was utterly ridiculous. What a waste. Having said that, it provided some nice moments along the run, and it’s always satisfying to watch such a talented cast. But oh my god, the script is bad, terrible, atrocious.February 4, 2021 at 1:17 pm #1204022899
It’s not like BAFTA nominated Leto for Dallas Buyers Club. What may work in his favour is that, unlike Chau and Lopez, he’s a past Oscar winner.February 4, 2021 at 12:21 pm #1204022659
Leto was pretty good in that otherwise drab as hell movie. So the nomination based on his performance doesn’t surprise me.
What surprised me was that the voters didn’t catch up to the scandal of him being involved with under-aged girls. Maybe the Oscar voters have enough time to not vote for him.
Industry overall is disgustingly sick. They will protect their peers til the end. Jared doesn’t have any real allegation against him. If he is an abuser indeed I hope he pays for it. But as of now, there’s only some reddit rumours and people can’t really get cancelled by that.February 4, 2021 at 11:51 am #1204022527
Even though Leto has a polarizing pop culture image due to The Joker and that weird Jesus/cult thing, you gotta respect his accolades as an actor. He has a pretty respectable filmography and is a SAG, GG, CC and Oscar winner. Industry already made it clear that they think that he can definitely act.
I watched The Little Things on two sittings cause I couldn’t stand how boring and slow the film was but Jared was fantastic and what made the film watchable, maybe lowkey decent. Rami was pretty bad in the first hour and it felt like I had seen Denzel play his character before.
A just ok actor would portray Leto’s character in an unidimensional fashion and then the movie would be pure garbage.
Having said that, I wouldn’t nominate him over Raci but can’t say I’m mad that he got in. Hope that translates into a second Academy Award nomination. His career deserves it.December 23, 2020 at 4:48 pm #1203942724

Remember when people were saying Cox and Strong would split. LMAO.
I swear next time a buzzy duo is nominated at the Emmys people will be like “they’re splitting” simply because two people are nominated.
Watchmen splitted in Directing and lost. Succession didn’t sweep in Acting. Strong could’ve easily lost.July 28, 2020 at 10:29 am #1203608638
I’m so sad for Pelphrey. Hope they bring him back next year as a ghost. He was just as marvelous as Mendelsohn for Bloodline S01.
Of course Succession is winning but I’ll just rely on the Patinkin snub for the drama winner Homeland S01 to pretend we have a race between Ozark and Succession.
The Mandalorian got in due to some Disney money, right? I’m sure it isn’t bad but…………….
I still think Linney and Garner might win. I’m still saying the Succession duo won’t overcome vote-splitting. Porter might repeat.
And, as a black person, thank you academy.June 17, 2020 at 5:35 pm #1203539459
The victim-blaming bullshit that someone could be just asking for their baby to be kidnapped (by virtue of “the level of neglect” inherent in a baby having been kidnapped) is among the most offensive and problematic takes that I have read in this forum.
That’s just an unfair way to address to what was said earlier on this thread.
What I found actually problematic was people judging Bebe for “choosing” to leave her baby.June 17, 2020 at 3:44 pm #1203539334
Wasn’t Ahmed over DeNiro the one real upset? Or not even that one?
It’s not like B. Vance and Cumberbatch beating Cranston and Ruffalo, respectively, came out of nowhere.
But yes, it may mean something, who knowsJune 17, 2020 at 1:29 pm #1203539014
10 minutes? Suspicious…
Given what’s been happening lately, maybe we should change the format and only consider the votes actually posted on the threads.June 17, 2020 at 1:11 pm #1203538979
Beware, the following argument is extremely tiring.
You’ve been warned.
But the current scenario might be what Aaron Paul needs to win getting carried by the – apparently – never-ending Breaking Bad residual love. I know it was kinda the same argument for Bob Odenkirk last year in drama, even though he had more of a winner performance than Aaron this year, but we don’t have a Billy Porter, not even a Jason Bateman type of passion here.
If we had a line up of somewhat filler nominees* in drama supporting actor such as: Jonathan Banks, Jon Voight, Jim Carter, Michael Kelly, Chris Sullivan and Matt Smith, Banks could grab a win out of BrBa residual love for any of the seasons he was nominated for BCS.
*I’m aware those guys were never eligible in the same year nor all are currently
So why not Paul? I’m not necessarily prediciting him though.
