They hate Greta Gerwig
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 these films are more likely Oscar winners than JoJo.
I think if anything surprise at the Oscars over 1917 or Parasite (I still think 1917 is winning), it is going to be JoJo Rabbit.January 12, 2020 at 8:19 pm #1203278623
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 seems silly to give her this award over someone like a Florence Pugh or Zhao Shuzhen. I honestly don’t see how anyone could think Dern doing her Big Little Lies character in Marriage Story is the best work we got by a female actress in a supporting role this year. People like Dakota Johnson in The Peanut Butter Falcon who aren’t even in the conversation gave better performances.January 11, 2020 at 9:32 am #1203275482
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.January 8, 2020 at 2:42 pm #1203271238
Does this happen that often though? Best example is Pollock I guess…
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.
Taika Waititi for Best Director
Is that really out of nowhere, he just received a DGA nod.January 6, 2020 at 7:30 pm #1203267121
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.January 5, 2020 at 3:34 pm #1203261803
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 might be overestimating Renee. She is not overdue for any awards, the film wasn’t a big box office hit, and it just did ok with critics. The nomination feels more like the reward. Johansson is the more hot star in the more critically acclaimed film.January 4, 2020 at 10:00 pm #1203260600
That’s not a hot take, that’s a fact. Driver was overacting the whole time. It was so bad it turned into a meme.
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.January 4, 2020 at 7:41 am #1203259455
Final Nominations Predictions:
The big talked about snub will be De Niro.January 1, 2020 at 9:11 pm #1203256271
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, reasons being:
– He’s a bigger veteran than Phoenix or Driver
– His film will appeal to old voters way more than Joker
– He has the chance to give a killer speech when he receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Critics Choice
– If he wins the Globe that is another possible great speech
– He just hosted one of the best reviewed SNL episodes in years
– The Academy Awards are looking very white this year and a Murphy win does make it a little less whiteJanuary 1, 2020 at 8:21 pm #1203256265

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 I Want for Christmas Is You. I bet it will reach an a new peak in 2020. I hear it constantly in shops all around Christmas. They played it liked 7 times today at the speaks in Busch Gardens in Florida tonight while I was their for New Years.
Happy that Kelly Clarkson becomes really the first new artist with a modern Christmas hit since Carey, she deserves it.December 28, 2019 at 3:55 pm #1203252824
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 flow in moments do to the editing.
