Apparently your troll self, since you commented.October 21, 2019 at 4:53 pm #1203146644
Granted I haven’t seen them, but I am rooting for Sandler and Murphy to come through. Two former SNL cast members nominated for Best Actor in the same year would be everything.October 21, 2019 at 4:51 pm #1203146642
This back and forth on Renee, Scarlett and Charlize (even though I am stanning her and Alfre) is snooze-inducing
Neon better start promoting Alfre, Lupita and Awkwafina better get some momentum, The Good Liar and Little Women better get good notices so that Mirren and Ronan can enter the race because I am bored.October 21, 2019 at 4:41 pm #1203146619
1. Kurosawa’s Ran – Japan/France

5. Kurosawa’s Rashomon – JapanOctober 21, 2019 at 4:30 pm #1203146599
Hathaway – without a doubt. One of the best performances of the 2000’s. She was incredibleOctober 20, 2019 at 7:37 pm #1203145316
Finally saw Joker and the film looked amazing. Totally down for some technical nominations but I think I may have hated the film. It was uncomfortable, I found myself looking at my watch and honestly, I found Phoenix to be completely one-note. He gave a committed performance, but it didn’t do it for me at all.
Falling Down is a much better and developed film with a similar premise. Much better.October 20, 2019 at 7:27 pm #1203145310
What about the rumored Lauryn Hill song from the upcoming Queen & Slim soundtrack. Could it be a contender?October 19, 2019 at 7:30 am #1203143570
Saw the trailer to The Good Liar and am thinking that Helen Mirren could get what I call “the older brit actress slot” nomination. The performance looks to be magnificent – o.k., I adore her so I am biased – but also the film itself looks fascinating to me, a really good trailer, can’t wait to see it!
At this juncture, unless reviews for the film and her performance are stellar, I do not see Mirren getting in at the Oscars.
That said, SAG loves, loves, loves her (remember that year she got nominated twice for The Woman in Gold and Trumbo) and I can see her sneaking in there.October 18, 2019 at 2:18 pm #1203142941
This thread is a mess – mainly because the intent is so far from clear.
Worst Oscar Bait:
The Iron Lady – I hated this movie. The direction was terrible and I found Meryl’s performance to be nothing short of a bad impersonation and completely soulless.
Boyhood – I love Linklater but I could not connect with this film in any way. I appreciated it, but I was bored to tears.
The Revenant – it reminded me of an episode of Looney Tunes. Like how much more can this man endure? I found myself laughing unintentionally throughout. Beautiful to look at but that’s it.
Bohemian Rhapsody – I said all I had to say about this monstrosity last year.October 18, 2019 at 11:40 am #1203142685
For me, All About Eve is brimming with lived-in, crackling performances.
In recent years, the criminally underrated Rachel Getting Married is a master class of acting from all involved.October 17, 2019 at 6:06 am #1203140885
How the hell did Cherry Jones make it in for Guest Actress for The Handmaid’s Tale. After all the flack (which was justified) that GD gave when she was nominated at the Emmys (and won) and she still gets in here.
A bit disappointed with a number of categories BUT that Supporting Actress Drama lineup is pretty perfect. Thandie, Lena and Christine all deserve to take it.October 16, 2019 at 6:16 am #1203139106
I’m patiently waiting for insider knowledge on Little Women. I know Ronan has chops but to take on Jo March is a huge undertaking in my opinion. One of the best characters of all time.October 16, 2019 at 4:15 am #1203138935
I’m not a troll for God’s sake! Can’t I just speak my mind why y’all so fragile, always trying to be politically correct! What about saying things as exactly they are.
Go ask white people if they ever wished they were black.
Also the fact that I don’t stan Johansson as the rest of y’all or I’m not ready to get on my knees and S. Adam Driver’s D. does NOT make me a troll. I’m just enjoying this fabulous forums as y’all even though our opinions are different!
It’s called basic human decency – something I feel you lack judging from these comments as well as your comments around Awkwafina.
I do think you are a troll because nobody here can have an opinion on something without you trashing it and coming after everyone 24/7. There is zero reasoning with you.
I do not and will not tolerate your ignorance.October 16, 2019 at 3:54 am #1203138920
Your answer is weak af! I never pretend that I was something or someone besides, And I can’t NEVER wish to be Chinese, let alone a Chinese woman lol!
What an ignorant, heinous statement to make. How dare you.
I can deal with your trolling but this is just wrong.
