This thread is NOT about if Black Panther or any film DESERVES its accolades. There’s a difference between “if it deserves the nom” and “if it’s a political nom.”
Black Panther deserves its BP nom for being an iconic black-cast film (this is already a political reason), but the nom 100% benefits MUCH from political reasons as a MCU movie.
–Is it the best MCU film? No. (Definitely not for GP)
–Does it deserve to be the only MCU film getting BP nom? Yes.
–Can it be considered as a political nom? Yes.

BLACK PANTHER (BP nom, score win, costume win)
The only MCU film getting BP? It’s political, man. Score should have gone to First Man or Beale Street. The former was even not nominated.

Renee Zellweger in Judy
Frances McDormand in 3 Billboards and Nomadland.
When I saw this thread, I knew exactly Frances Mcdormand would be mentioned by you, who posted hate comments in every possible place, and even created a whole thread in the forum trying to dismiss her victory.
If she hadn’t won this 3rd win, I doubt she would have been hated so much by some of you now. Ironically, her weakest winning performance was Fargo; instead, you chose her other 2 career-best ones as worst-ever Oscars performances.

I don’t see evermore happening anywhere for a variety of reasons. Pop voters couldn’t give her a win for folklore, so i doubt they would even look at evermore knowing this is a sister album which has already been dumped by Taylor herself in terms of promotions. evermore will miss the GF after folklore’s win.
True. Folklore has already taken all the attention from this Folklore/Evermore era. I doubt Willow as a song will show up anywhere. Like Folklore, Evermore will only be competitive in album categories. None of the songs really stands out (Cardigan is a first single so…)

The last memorably great song from Billie Eillish for me is “Everything I Wanted.”
All her recent songs, including There I Am and the 007 one, are all generic/forgettable for me. I was hyped up for this new era because of that 15s snippet, but then “Your Power” was released, which is so weak as a single.

So many top hits now are meh to me:
Deja Vu, Peaches, Save Your Tears, Astronaut in the Ocean, Kiss Me More (Doja Cat), Therefore I Am, 34+35, every Drake song
The only ones that I like:
Leave the Door Open
Blinding Lights (it’s still at #10+)
Without You (by The Kid LAROI)
The new Billie song is also pretty weak.
I need Silk Sonic to drop their album now.

It’s amazing that Ridley Scott got one career-best-level film from each decade.
Alien in 70s
Blade Runner in 80s
Thelma & Louise in 90s
Gladiator in 00s
The Martian in 10s
Which film will be the one in 20s? Let’s see…

We had heard so many anonymous voters choosing Hopkins over Boseman so it’s the idea that everyone had been suspicious about but had had in minds.
I can still feel how people were surprised at Colman’s win over Close in that winning video. Truly amazing!

My heart goes to Mcdormand, but my brain goes to Streep.

Yes, she does.
And lol suddenly these haters are bringing out all the other nominees who were even #3 or #4 of winning chances in that year’s race (e.g. Robbie, Ronan.) You guys need to get a drink and get over for your favs and for the hate against an actress who works so hard and actually doesn’t care these awards as you do.
How many more hate threads and posts about Mcdormand are you gonna create? Embarrassing and childish.

Do y’all think that Viola should’ve been pushed in Supporting?
I want Viola Davis to win a rightful Best LEADING Actress as she deserves. No more supporting awards for a black queen, please.

I don’t think she won because she won BAFTA. I think she won because academy voters genuinely liked her performance and this was an open race and she was in the BP winner. A bit like Bong Joon Ho in directing last year. This was the logic I used to predict Mulligan (except I obviously wasn’t daft enough to predict PYW in Picture lol I stayed with Nomadland) but it makes more sense that McDormand was the one who did this instead.
I giggled every time somebody said she won because voters are so lazy that they copied whoever won BAFTAs. That’s not how human minds work lol. Too many conspiracy theories from some of you…

This is NOT true. Here is a thing, the more diverse the Academy will get, the more less Black actors will win. In America, Diversity means only Black, largely. The international voting comprises of people from all over the world and they don’t identify with American problems. Majority of those voter’s countries have many other social problems and most of those problems is not race related. America’s obsession with race (right so cuz of horrific slave history) is NOT their problem/concern. So they might not think like American voters who sometimes forcefully make a Black actor win jus to evade racism tag. They will only vote if they really like that performance as it happened with Daniel Kalluya.
That’s true. As international audience, we really don’t care about the black/white issues or the overdue narrative. We just voted for what we love or think is the best in that category. The different results between SAG and BAFTAs/Oscars told it all.
Accusing the industry for not casting more black actors for leading roles in major films is more effective than accusing any award for not going to a black winner.
