Joaquin Phoenix is dead in the water. He should not have been in the conversation in the first place. A mentally challenged person ‘playing’ someone who is mentally challenged? Is it acting? This isn’t reality TV honey.
Adam Driver will be nominated because he’s the nubile new hottie on the scene for the vampiric Hollywood elite. Does he deserve to win? It’s in the stars. But did you know about who was sacrificed so Adam could have his come up? Do you ever ask yourself, whatever happened to Josh Hartnett? Hmmm.
Adam Sandler should be nominated and should win. He copped a lot of slack but the intelligence in his films since I’d say ‘Click’ has been growing. Terrific comic actor who is a competent allrounder and will likely have an enduring legacy like other comics before him like Dave Chappelle and Charlie Chaplin.
Antonio Banderes is for sure being nominated, when you’re bad your entire career and put in one okay performance the whole world is in awe. He should not win, and won’t.
Robert DeNiro. Will and should be nominated and should win if Sandler doesn’t somehow. The way he forced his body to move like someone 40 years younger, a physical sacrifice and pure willpower. He deserves rewarding.
Robert Pattinson will be nominated, like his Twilight co-star Kristine Stewart for Seberg, if only to prop up The Lighthouse as a true Best Picture contender.
Leonardo Dicaprio should be nominated but he won’t be. New Hollywood wants new blood, and Dicaprio will be the sacrificial lamb like Tom Hanks was 15 years ago. I don’t know what Meryl is doing that keeps her a mainstay in the nominations because she hasn’t been good since August Osage County.
Jonathan Price is not nominated. I’ve heard rumblings that the catholic higher powers at be will sink The Two Popes in a day or two within release.
Eddie Murphy is also out.

I think Paul Greengrass was possibly 2nd for United 93, although Scorsese won that year with a huge gap, so even if Greengrass was 2nd he still was probably not that close to winning.December 7, 2019 at 9:06 am #1203221357
That is the closest to having taste that I’ve ever seen Grace Randolph get.December 7, 2019 at 9:03 am #1203221349
Imagine this not winning an Oscar.
I like Charlize, but my god how annoying are those quick cuts and the shaky cam? All it does is take the focus away from Charlize’s monologue. It’s a movie, not a music video ffs.
Ugh, I’m not going to like Bombshell.December 7, 2019 at 8:44 am #1203221267
I think the main problem for Dern is that her character is really unlikable. And not in a cool badass way like Alison Janney or Sam Rockwell. She was mostly just annoying.
That said, she is probably still probably winning because, as others have said, her competition isn’t that strong and the fact that she REALLY wants that Oscar.December 4, 2019 at 8:02 am #1203215639

I opened this thread and I swear for a moment I thought I accidentally time travelled…
Having said that, I would also like to purchase one ticket for the Yalitza train, please.December 4, 2019 at 12:58 am #1203215175

Let’s not get carried away with Sandler being a player just yet. He has to battle the likes of Banderas, Pryce and Bale just to get a Globe nod.December 3, 2019 at 12:37 pm #1203214030

2013 – Emma Thompson
2015 – Ridley Scott
2016 – Amy Adam

I can totally see Tarantino getting in everywhere then getting snubbed at the Oscars. The hype for his movie will have completely died come Oscar voting, there is little passion for it, and frankly, the people who like OUATIH are likely to prefer The Irishman (and Parasite).
Zellweger isn’t missing out, her category is too weak this year.December 3, 2019 at 11:06 am #1203213722November 29, 2019 at 5:53 am #1203207805
˄ It doesn’t reference the foreign language category itself, so it should be eligible in other categories as well.
At least that’s how I understood it.November 29, 2019 at 5:34 am #1203207800
