I suppose if Lisa Kudrow got a juicy supporting part in an acclaimed dramedy ala Laurie Metcalf she could do it, but in all likelihood, Jennifer Aniston will be first based on her recent dramatic ventures.
George MacKay was great and there is a laundry list of people who should have replaced Jonathan Pryce in the final lineup.
Luce was my favorite film of the year. Naomi Watts, Octavia Spencer, and Kelvin Harrison, Jr. all deserved nods and there was room for each of them.
I haven’t seen some big ones (Parasite, Jojo Rabbit, Ford v Ferrari, Uncut Gems, Waves) but I didn’t want to include some that I thought were fine but not good enough to make my list (Irishman, Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, Bombshell, Hustlers, The Two Popes, The Farewell, etc.). Once I see more I will update my list.
That episode was very good and a huge step up. I was particularly laughing my ass off during the Science Room sketch and especially the Del Taco sketch. Those are two of the best in a while. And of course, I loved the return of Undercover Boss and Melissa Villasenor’s appearance on Update.
1917- Singing in the woods
Luce- Harriet and Luce’s confrontation
Joker- Talk show scene
Little Women- Beth gets the piano
Marriage Story- Opening sequence
Bombshell- Kayla breaks down on the phone
Judy- Judy finds out what she means to the gay community
I think Cynthia Erivo is remarkable in this movie. She commits 100% and really sells a terrible script. I thought Harriet was going to be mediocre, but it really is just laughably bad.
But I think it is a far greater achievement for an actor to be able to turn in a great performance in a bad movie than to turn in a good performance in a great…[Read more]

What is this about Laura Dern playing Laura Dern? If you watch her interviews, she is absolutely nothing like Nora.
If we want to talk about someone playing themselves we could talk about Brad Pitt, but for some reason, we cannot criticize him.
I’m sick of everyone directing all of their hate towards Laura Dern. She does not deserve it.
I don’t remember what Brad Pitt would have won for at SAG and so I don’t think voters will either.
And even if they did remember, I can’t think of a voter who would say to themselves “well Brad Pitt won an ensemble award however many years ago so I should vote for someone who has never won before.”
I don’t think this is a likely scenario.

I wasn’t familiar with her before I saw Brooklyn and I haven’t seen the movie since its release. I definitely need to rewatch that now that I know more of her work but until then my pick is Lady Bird.

I’m mad at myself. This morning, I woke up and was like it would be such an Oscars thing to do to nominate Kathy Bates. But I never would have predicted that she would knock out Jennifer Lopez!
