There is clearly just a lot of love for JoJo Rabbit in the industry. It might not of earned a Director nomination at the Oscars. But this is its third Guild win, it beat Once Upon a Time in Hollywood at the ACEs and Costume Guild, and now it has beat The Irishman, Joker, and Little Women at the WGA’s. And I have heard a lot of people say all of…[Read more]
Dern’s wins just confuse me. Does anyone one here actually think that is the Best Supporting Performance of the year. It’s not even the best Laura Dern performance of the year, or the most memorable supporting female performance in Marriage Story (Julie Hagerty, Merritt Wever, and Martha Kelly all left more of a impact). I love Dern, but it just…[Read more]
1917 is going to have a good number 1 box office debut this week, and with the Oscar nominations on Monday, it could have a even stronger 2nd weekend if it is one of the leading nominees.
A great box office at the right time of year could easily place this one in the lead.

I would be shocked if Lulu Wang doesn’t get a screenplay nomination.
MMartin replied to the topic Who will be this year's "out of nowhere" nominees? in the forum Movies 9 months, 3 weeks ago
The best one I can think of his Maggie Gyllenhaal in Crazy Heart, didn’t she have one small critics nomination from like Dallas and not one other single nomination. I am still baffled by how the hell that happened.Is that really out of nowhere, he just received a DGA nod.
The four acting races seems like locks, it their is a upset I would say it would be Renee. She did not give a great speech at the Globes, and the film isn’t a hit.
But it is a great performance, plus Hollywood loves Judy Garland.
I think Phoenix is winning Best Actor and Joker Best Picture Drama. Don’t think Joker has a chance in hell of winning Best Picture at the Oscar, it will fare poorly on the preferential ballot. Phoenix I think will win at the Oscars. I would prefer Driver to win.
I think the big surprise might be in Best Actress, I could see Johansson winning. We…[Read more]
It was turned into a meme by dumb people on Twitter who didn’t even watch the film and don’t know a thing about acting. 90% of the people making fun of it most likely so three films in theaters this year and they all had the words Marvel in front of them.

My current frontrunners
Supporting Actor: Pitt
Supporting Actress: Lopez
If we are talking about upsets, the I am ignoring Dern, Driver, Renee…etc, I don’t think anybody would consider those wins surprise upsets. They could easily be the actual frontrunners.
The biggest upset I could see is Eddie Murphy,…[Read more]

I just popped in here to say how happy I am that Kelly Clarkson 2013 single Underneath the Tree just reached the Top 40 on the Hot 100 for the first time this week do to its high streaming numbers, reaching a new peak at 31. It’s previous highest peak happened last year at 44.
This song appears to be the first real Christmas hit single since All…[Read more]
Saw the movie today and thought it was great. The cast is superb and Florence Pugh should be getting a Supporting Nomination this year. The film would also be a worthy nominee in Picture, Director, Actress, Supporting Actor, Costume Design, and Adapted Screenplay.
My biggest issue with it was the editing, I do think it had a awkward narrative…[Read more]

Saw The Rise of Skywalker and Little Women, loved both of them. Little Women feels like such awards bait I don’t know how it is performing so poorly this season.
Still a lot to see (Little Women, 1917, Parasite, JoJo Rabbit, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Hustlers), but of what I have seen:
1. Marriage Story
2. The Peanut Butter Falcon
3. Toy Story 4
4. The Farewell
Runners-up: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood and Midsommar
MMartin replied to the topic 2020 Oscar Predictions: Who are we underestimating? in the forum Movies 10 months, 1 week ago
I still think Little Women it is going to surprise. Between the source material, critical acclaim, director, and all star cast it seems like a no brainer for a Best Picture nom. Maybe if it performs well over Christmas Academy voters will take notice. I am really baffled how ignored its been this award season. Easily thought it would be doing…[Read more]
I think they were hoping for that holiday week by week success that Les Miserables (441 million) and The Greatest Showman (435 million) found with their December release dates. Even Into the Woods (213 million) did solid box office on its budget (50 million) with its Christmas release date.

Persepolis from 2007. Which is a great film with a wonderfully unique visual style and a powerful story.
