Documentary Feature is where my heart is. Great list.
Shocked that Corpus Christi got a nom. I’m happy since it’s a Polish film, but damn, lack of nom for Atlantics hurts.
As for the other stuff, it is what it is. I honestly fear that if those big awards won’t change their ways, they will become irrelevant, just like music awards. Film world is slowly moving forward, awards can’t stay behind.January 12, 2020 at 11:40 pm #1203278883
Phoebe’s sweeping in Best Comedy Actress categories feels a bit too much. Best Series? Sure, but acting? She is good, but I feel like comedy this year had a lot more to offer when it comes to acting.
That’s why I like drama wins more. Jodie won something and deserved it, Regina won something and she deserved it, Olivia won and…
Well let’s just say if someone new wins at SAG it will be great, if someone repeats – that’s fine too, because again, hardly anyone here is undeserving.
As for comedy? I’m ready for 2020. Hopefully less predictable.January 11, 2020 at 12:35 pm #1203275648
Someone from Portrait.
I think my vote would go to Claire Mathon. Her work was simply stunning.
And I know you said “one nom”, but my God, I would love to see Alfre Woodard to be nominated for her perf. in Clemency.January 9, 2020 at 1:44 pm #1203272670
Only if this is with the og cast, but even then…January 7, 2020 at 12:54 am #1203267640
I kind of hate those noms, well not all because love for Booksmart is always nice, and Portrait got a nom and Pain and Glory and..tho one could argue that all those films should get at least few more.
But lord, those dual acting noms in a year where there was so many good acting from a lot of people…January 4, 2020 at 12:32 pm #1203259989
I would give a lot for Claire Mathon to be nominated for anything really, Portrait or Atlantics. Because that lady did remarkable job in both.December 24, 2019 at 11:36 am #1203248945
I’ve stucked on ep 5 and…to be honest I’m struggling with this show. I want to love it so bad, but it’s lacking pretty much on every front. Most actors are…okey-ish and Ruth is an MVP, but others are just terribly miscast like Lin-Manuel Miranda. I adore this man, but his perfomrance here is so frustrating.
I read the first book, I watched film adaptation and I’m stunned that this material is still such a massive challange for filmakers.December 21, 2019 at 1:40 pm #1203246475
Oscar nom voting starts in under 2 weeks. Acad members still haven’t received screeners for Ad Astra, The Souvenir, Transit, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Long Day’s Journey Into Night, High Flying Bird, Synonyms. This is a bummer. No campaign prob means no noms for any of them.
Yeah, it is a bummer, but honestly, as much as I love some of them, does it really matter? I think at this point frontrunners to get some noms are rather set.December 18, 2019 at 11:02 am #1203242825
I remember when The Force Awakens came out and I was like: huh, that’s it? Almost everyone was so freaking sentimental about it.
But after that movie it was clear to me, that this is a completely empty creation with nothing new to say.
TLJ tried, but it was too late.December 16, 2019 at 3:04 pm #1203240545
Corpus Cristi – International FF.
Yes! Proud of this little movie, and of course Atlantics.December 16, 2019 at 11:25 am #1203239993
Not my fav episode of the season, but of course it did not ruin the the show’s fantastic quality. Iconic stuff.December 15, 2019 at 4:02 am #1203237769
That untouchable top 3: God’s Own Country, Portrait of a Lady on Fire & The Handmaiden.
Honourable mention: Pride.December 11, 2019 at 10:50 am #1203231882
I still think the show will have a big impact on next year’s Emmys, but it is a little bit odd how it is not fully embraced in “acting” awards.
I mean, both important HBO dramas have this problem. Emmy’s campaing for Succession and Watchmen (here situation is even worse), is going to be interesting next year.December 11, 2019 at 1:52 am #1203230279
How do you propose women not being nominee as Directors should be solved here.
Should there be a separate category for women?
I wouldn’t want a seperate category. My fave movie of the year was directed by woman, actually Celine Sciamma and Mati Diop are top two in my personal, biased, irrelevant ranking. The high quality was always there and still is.
Lots of good stuff is happening right now, women are getting more and more opportunities and they take it. The (men’s) world will eventually catch up and notice the quality.
And if not, then…that’s their and awards’ loss.
