Camille Paglia can choke. Her highbrow and pretentious opinion on Gaga’s singing and acting are obviously not shared by the majority of millions of people who watched it. Poor haters, now that Gaga has a slimmer chance of winning an acting Oscar (yet she’s still winning one) Gaga’s name still comes at their mouths. The relevancy! It’s honestly so boring lmao.
My vote will forever be for Gaga till the moment they open the envelop and announce the winner. And if she doesn’t win, I know she’ll be back in a few years. 2016 was supposed to be her Original Song year, and now she’s back to collect what’s hers. See you in a few years gals xxFebruary 16, 2019 at 7:43 am #1202778212
The tension is setting in as Gary Oldman opens the Best Actress Oscar envelope. The camera tracks five actresses up for the award, the room is silent. “The Oscar goes to… Lady Gaga, A Star is Born!”. An echo of gasps and violent applause rocks the Dolby Theater as Glenn Close feigns adoration. Colman gets up first while Yalitza Aparicio and Melissa McCarthy swiftly follows. Gaga has her mouth open, shell-shocked as Bradley Cooper keeps mouthing “You won!” repeatedly; drowned out by the claps. A single elephant tear streaks her cheeks as she stands up and takes her custom Versace gown to the stage. All is well in the world.February 12, 2019 at 4:25 pm #1202773935
Hopefully when they call Bradley’s name as Best Actor and the whole room shouts – stunned – and gives him a standing ovation. Then he sheds a little tearFebruary 10, 2019 at 6:24 pm #1202770075
I’m over this category. I just know Malek will be on of the worst in history, and that’s a fact. His win will NOT stand the test of time. It’s taintingFebruary 6, 2019 at 4:56 am #1202762955
You do realise that it’s highly, very highly unlikely atm that Gaga could win Best Actress Oscar or Best Acress BAFTA? She is almost a lock to win Best Song Oscar and maybe she could win Best Music BAFTA though.
I do, but as they say, it’s not over till its over. Xoxo JoanneFebruary 6, 2019 at 4:17 am #1202762935
Waiting for the moment Gaga will take her BAFTA and her Best Actress Oscar. Hell will break loose!February 4, 2019 at 4:31 am #1202760789
I do not know if this media process is right or wrong, but all this “support” from the televised awards is certainly anachronistic compared to our times.
the show business was ALWAYS full of controversial and borderline personalities, but this is the era of “politically correct” (#oscarsowhite, #metoo, etc.) and we still read in the newspapers that “Singer was fired for not showing up to set “. This is disgusting.
In a normal world, a film like BR would never have received awards attention, even without considering Singer’s situation: he has a poor script, embarrassing dialogues, one-dimensional characters; I can understand the love coming from the Globes (they often love trash) … but here we talk about Oscar Best Picture Nomination! BR was put on the same level of films that received this nomination without winning (Taxi Driver, Space Odissey, just to name a few). And this only because the film has grossed many millions, thanks to the huge fanbase of Queen.
Many people tell me to carefully watch the famous final scene and compare it with the real concert to understand the greatness of Malek’s interpretation: I did it, and I found nothing but flaws, artificialisms, puppet moves. There is nothing authentic, but I can “understand” the nomination for Malek (biopic, legend, makeup, blah blah blah), the editing is disgusting (the atmosphere is completely blown by idiotic cuts like those that show Myers in the office or parents at home). I also do not understand the nominations for sound editing (there is practically no acquisition, but only use of pre-existing high quality material) and sound mixing (I asked experts in the field who have made me countless mistakes).
If this film wins even one Oscar it will be a shame for the art world.
(sorry for the wall of text and my bad english)
It’s almost as if there’s a backlash against the backlash with mostly old, white voters willfully ignoring all the controversies to prove that they are right, they have power, and they will exercise it. They know it’s wrong but they’ll keep supporting it anyway in the name of blind love and pride.
It’s my first awards season on GD because of Gaga and goddamn it is so heartbreaking how everything happened from BR sweeping, Green Book sweeping, Bradley not winning a single award, and all the ethical problems that Hollywood has “tried” so hard to eliminate is now rearing its ugly head. It’s fucked up. Once Gaga wins Best Song Oscar i’m out. Some of the users here go beyond stan wars – their misogynistic and enabling abilities are horrificFebruary 3, 2019 at 3:00 am #1202759824
I can’t believe this dumpster fire won the freaking ACE. This awards season has been pure TRASH.February 3, 2019 at 12:51 am #1202759745
Cooper not winning is fucked up. There truly seems to be something else going on behind the scenes when your film is nominated at every single guild and has eight Academy Award noms and they refuse to recognize your work. Sometime in the future when Cooper sweeps through an awards season for an ok performance, everybody will look back at how fucked up this awards season is.January 30, 2019 at 7:14 am #1202755260
“Exclusive: Bryan Singer stands to make $40 million from #BohemianRhapsody thr.cm/uUhV4l”
I don’t even know what to say. This is why you can’t separate the art from the artist. My heart goes out to the victims. Imagine being scarred for life by this monster and everyone just. Fucking. Enables it.January 30, 2019 at 7:08 am #1202755257
“Bryan Singer Stands to Make $40 Million From ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’”
The old goes that “Karma’s a bitch,” but note that the part they left out was that the only reason Karma is a bitch is because Karma isn’t real.
I don’t care if you love or hate this movie by this point. The fact is that Bryan Singer is one of the creepiest pedophilic sociopaths on the planet and this shit is as heartbreaking as it is revolting. Kevin Spacey is a monster in the same ways too, but he gets edited out of a movie, Netflix fires him from his star velicle TV show, and pulls his upcoming Gore Vidal biopic from release. Spacey’s career gets appropriately ruined, yet Bryan Singer gets $40 Million for a movie that had no part in the post production of and didn’t even finish filming it, while also getting $10 Million to direct the upcoming Red Sonja movie. Un-freaking-believable, this is so hypocritical and pathetic on so many levels I can’t even begin to name them all. My heart goes out to Singer and Spacey’s victims, even though Hollywood only seems to care about the sexual abuse victims of one of those powerful predators.
Please don’t think this is about my liking or disliking the movie, this is deeper than that in my opinion, the double standards when it comes to who is believed, who is ignored, and who is or isn’t made to face any kind of consequences in this so-called “MeToo” era. Time is clearly not up for the likes of Bryan Singer and I loathe the message that sends to all other victims of powerful Hollywood people who are scared to come forward and whose fear will only be worsened by seeing a monster like Singer keep on getting accolades and high-paying work even after he “finally” (there have been allegations against him for literally the last 20 years) gets exposed by only a few of his victims.
This shit is bigger than awards season. Another pedophile made rich while the cast and crew remain silent for a golden statue. Heartbreaking. Anyone who reads this and still supports the film, shame.January 30, 2019 at 6:50 am #1202755247
Cooper received almost no love from the critics or from the industry so saying that his performance is the best screams delusion at its best.
I think his path was always supposed to start at the Golden Globes (and Gaga’s too) but then passion for Queen started late and peaked at the right time so everyone deliberately ignored all the shameful controversies and went with the flow.
I will forever despise the Golden Globes for legitimizing Malek.January 29, 2019 at 9:23 pm #1202754990
I wonder if the ones being this mad at Bohemian Rhapsody saw the film on their computers in dubious quality or actually went to the cinema. Total different experiences.
Lmao as if the size of the screen doesn’t change quality. Or plot. Or editing. Or character development. Make it make sense
