good god that 5th nomination is throwing me all off…January 7, 2020 at 2:06 pm #1203269352
Nope. 3 Netflix movies are getting in there. Knives Out is the commercial Hit PGA alaways includes but doesn’t translate to BP nom. I’m actually more positive Bombshell gets in now a la Extremely Loud Incredibly Close.
If any nominee is getting into the BP race because of commercial success it’s Joker… Knives Out did very well at the box office so it was seen by many and people seem to genuinely enjoy the movie. If anything is taking that 9th slot it’s Knives Out. It reminds me of a Hell or High Water or Get Out type of nominee.January 3, 2020 at 6:53 pm #1203258717
First off, I meant that Cho was the most acclaimed of the women. Song Kang-ho has definitely gotten the most acclaim of all the performances, which I believe he’s worthy of. Anyway, I thought Lee was great, but Cho stuck with me more. I thought she was hysterical and ended up being surprisingly sad at the same time.
You realize Lee is ahead of Cho in the predictions right?January 3, 2020 at 5:45 pm #1203258662
I wouldn’t predict any of the women from Parasite since Song Kang-ho is the only actor from the film being given individual studio backing. If one or them can can somehow make it in without the studio’s help, it would probably be Cho Yeo-jeong, as she’s earned the most acclaim of the women, deservedly, in my opinion.
Why exactly? Song Kang-ho and Lee Jung-Eun’s performances are the ones I feel stood out the most. What exactly did Cho Yeo-Jeong do in the film that was worthy of a nomination? Yes, she was good but she was no Lee Jung-Eun.January 3, 2020 at 5:33 pm #1203258631
I’m bumping out Florence Pugh for Lee Jung Eun. Honestly, Lee Jung Eun should be winning this award. Her performance in Parasite runs circles around Laura Dern’s performance in Marriage Story. It’s also quite obvious that not many people have seen Little Women. I just don’t think the Pugh argument is strong enough to get her in.December 15, 2019 at 9:57 pm #1203239078
I personally feel like Johannson gave the performance of her career in this film. I wouldn’t mind seeing her win.December 15, 2019 at 9:54 pm #1203239076
Ok let me preface this by saying Dern is a class act and obviously a good actress, I just don’t think what was delivered or material she got in MS warrants a win. Numerous other actresses could have played the part. Similarly for Alda who is obviously a legend, I don’t think his part merits a nom or the win
The most underrated performance in this film is Ray Liotta’s.December 11, 2019 at 2:30 pm #1203232351
Ugh, it hurts to take Robert De Niro out of my predictions…December 11, 2019 at 1:32 pm #1203232247
Point being, and I will metaphorically and totally non-commitantly die on this internet hill, none of you have seen the movies you’re gambling on which are partially formed on critical or industry reviews but mostly pattern-predicting and stereotypes. You’re all sheep and these odds mean nothing.
There’s screeners darling. So quite a few of us have seen these movies. Just sounds like you haven’t. You seem a lot different than you used to be on the TV boards. I used to agree with you quite a bit. Too bad.December 11, 2019 at 11:38 am #1203232006
Okay, I’m sorry but Bombshell shouldn’t have made it into Ensemble over Knives Out. No way. This bugs me so much. I feel people weren’t able to see Knives Out in time for voting and/or that they nominated Bombshell just because of the names in it. Bombshell is a mediocre film, while Knives Out is an absolute masterpiece.
