I totally agree that they all pretty much deserved their lead placements, it’s just that they didn’t seem any more lead than Hoult in The Great to me. I can think of many scenes where his character had storylines separate from Fanning and even the main premise of the show (SPOILER) was Catherine trying to stage a coup and kill him. I wonder if there’s a breakdown anywhere of his screen time compared to Fanning this season which could be quite helpful.
Thank you for the helpful spoiler alert.February 25, 2021 at 12:10 am #1204060180
I’m probably missing something obvious but can’t understand what was so Oscar worthy about Mark Rylance…he looked vaguely confused and bored that whole movie, a nomination would have been generous enough.
It’s just that he’s the best actor in a hyped movie, once you realise how bad all the others are.
Lion deserved Best Picture I love Mahershala Ali but it really should have been Dev Patel
Dev Patel deserves the world, partly because in Lion, he became the first and only non-Australian in the history of the universe to do an Australian accent properly.February 25, 2021 at 12:08 am #1204060174
I’ve seen many of the likely BP nominees in recent weeks, but the very last film I saw was Minari. And I think it could go all the way. Magical.
And … A Mighty Wind! Awesome.February 24, 2021 at 12:04 am #1204058146
Not gonna lie, the current generation of actresses (late teens to early twenties) are pretty boring lol. Not saying we don’t have some really talented girls, but none of them feel like movie stars. Maybe Zendaya is on her way to become one, and maybe Saoirse is on her way to become a Blanchett/Winslet type of thespian but that’s it. Like, where is the controversy, scandals, feuds, trend-setters, public obsession… none of that anymore.

For me it was between Parasite, Moonlight and Spotlight. They all moved me in a powerful way. Parasite stunned me but it’s not repeat viewing, I didn’t finish my second time. Moonlight I’ve watched several times. I voted for Parasite though because when I watched it, I remember I burst out laughing about halfway through because I couldn’t believe how good it was. My jaw was on the floor. That scene where the daughter lights a cigarette on the toilet? Jesus.February 9, 2021 at 8:09 am #1204032800
Bumping this in response to the recent scandal involving Armie Hammer. In light of said scandal, Hammer has been dropped by both his publicist and his agent. This is a sign that he may be finished in Hollywood, at least for a while. Which means that IF a sequel to CMBYN is made, chances are they will have to recast the role of Oliver. Would you be okay with a sequel without Hammer in it? And if so, who would you prefer as a replacement?
More to the point, how do I ever watch one of my favourite movies again and not think of whatever the hell he’s done.February 8, 2021 at 1:05 am #1204029911
Not only for Pen & Shadows but the writers branch are responsible for being the only Primetime ceremony/above-the-line nominations for Buffy, Battlestar, The Wire, Freaks & Geeks, American Vandal, Twins Peaks S3, Community, and were the first to recognise Black Mirror (not counting the TV Movie category for obvious reasons) and were the only branch to recognise The Americans for years. They’re typically really good at recognising the cooler/weirder picks.
You’ve just helped me understand why I like what I like. I thought everyone thought ‘good writing = quality’ but I guess some people are just like … the effects were cool.February 7, 2021 at 12:27 am #1204027842
Thanks everyone for your recommendations. I binged and LOVED Sex Education last week and now onto It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia which seems like fun but a bit hard to watch as a sober person.February 7, 2021 at 12:13 am #1204027810

Not everyone is Meryl Streep.
Meryl Streep thereby proving that not a single American can do or has ever been able to do an Australian accent. In fact the only non-Australian who has ever done it well is Dev Patel. I will not be taking questions at this time, whoever you are thinking of, the answer is no.February 6, 2021 at 11:53 pm #1204027796
Can someone explain to me without using the word racist why he ‘deserves’ a posthumous Oscar?February 4, 2021 at 10:29 am #1204022113
Ugh going to develop an extension which blocks R*gina K*ng’s name on here.February 4, 2021 at 9:04 am #1204021442
Can we just recognise that Maria Bakalova, an unknown young Bulgarian actress, has become a GG and SAG nominee? Bloody good on her. She acted her socks off and as a reminder, comedy is harder than drama.
