Finally saw Judy. I thought the film was mediocre and Zellweger was alright but definitely not Oscar worthy. If she does win, she’d definitely be the weakest winner of the decade.September 19, 2019 at 8:47 pm #1203087904
At the beginning of the awards season it seemed like the general consensus was that Jason Bateman was going to win for Lead Actor. Now the momentum seems to have shifted to Billy Porter. I haven’t seen Pose yet but can someone explain how he suddenly became the frontrunner? Right now I think it’s going to be between Odenkirk and Bateman but I don’t really know much about Porter’s performance.September 15, 2019 at 1:24 pm #1203077162
I feel like this has almost no buzz. Great reviews, sure, but few people are talking about it.
I don’t remember hearing much about Hell or High Water compared to the rest of the 2016 BP nominees until the awards nomination season started. That didn’t stop it from getting in. The Farewell is still in the running for a BP nomination.September 15, 2019 at 1:15 pm #1203077149
I’m counting down the days for AFI Fest because I can’t wait for Queen & Slim! I really think this film, with its screenplay and story by Lena Waithe and James Frey, and directed Melina Matsoukas can make a late surge in the race and perhaps be in contention for a nomination in the top categories. The film looks really good from the trailer and the cast also looks great with Daniel Kaluuya, Jodie Turner-Smith, Bokeem Woodbine, Chloë Sevigny, and Indya Moore.September 15, 2019 at 12:38 pm #1203077044
I would put the The Two Popes instead of ABDITN but other than that I agree.
You’re right, the film’s screenwriter, Anthony McCarten has been on a role. I just checked and saw that his last 3 films all got into Best Picture (Bohemian Rhapsody, Darkest Hour, and The Theory of Everything). The Two Popes has better reviews than all of 3 of those films which could help but it being on Netflix has me hesitant especially since they already have two films that will likely be in contention.September 15, 2019 at 12:03 pm #1203076946

Crazy to think that the last time The Simpsons won this category, George W. Bush was President of the U.S.September 15, 2019 at 11:07 am #1203076817
How do you know who has or hasn’t seen it? I was at TIFF, I saw Jojo Rabbit, and in no way, shape or form was it the best film there.
I wasn’t talking about you specifically but I’m sure there are people who haven’t seen it that have already formed an opinion on it before seeing it, because of critic reviews. I even recall seeing a post that said “I’m unstaning” because of the reviews.September 15, 2019 at 11:00 am #1203076799
A Hitler movie and a Joker movie just won the two most important fall film festival awards. PC Police must be seething.September 15, 2019 at 10:55 am #1203076786
How many of you are actually at TIFF? I don’t understand the backlash at Jojo Rabbit from people on this forum.
Right? They’re hating on a movie they haven’t even seen. I remember everyone on these forums being all over it but once the critic scores came out they changed their tone. People act like critic reviews are an objective way of telling if a film is good or not.September 14, 2019 at 8:16 pm #1203075486
Just checked and The Simpsons has now won an Animated Program Emmy for 3 decades in a row. Had it not won tonight, then that streak would not exist. This was the first time it won this category since 2008.
