Rema/Selena vs. Shakira/Bizarrap vs. Lizzo/SZA vs. PinkPantheress/Ice Spice vs. Taylor/Lana would be one of the most interesting BPDGP line-ups in a while tbh. A mix of rising artists, artists who have been around for a few years and are very popular, and some veterans.
Huns, Selena isn’t Grammy darling. She can be nominated but I’ll put my money on Shakira actually taking this. That song is combination of success and Grammy respect since Shakira has 3 Grammys and 12 Latin Grammys.ReplyMay 21, 2023 at 5:16 am #1205436211
I know we said we weren’t going to talk about Taylor, but can see a similar situation with Adele where the Academy feels like the have over-awarded Taylor and they want to award the newer guard.
Why haven’t they woken up from awarding overrated Beyoncé? Because if we gonna talk about an artist that’s over awarded it’s her. She should have less than half of the Grammys she has.May 21, 2023 at 5:10 am #1205436207
Lily Gladstone will probably go supporting and win. Not everyone is as stupid as white Michelle.ReplyApril 30, 2023 at 8:51 pm #1205417500
Not this thread teaching us the definition of vocal. 😂
Kelly Clarkson can outVocal overrated swift any day and in her sleep. Swift can’t sing, dance or act. She should thank her diary and high school teenage girls for her career.April 30, 2023 at 5:23 pm #1205415305
I don’t understand what these directors see in Emma BLANDstone.
She’s always been an OK actress just like Gwyneth Paltrow who just got Oscar lucky.ReplyApril 30, 2023 at 5:20 pm #1205415303
Is Lana Del Rey submitting in alternative? She should because she’ll be a Grammy winner. Ocean Boulevard is her best album after NFR.April 30, 2023 at 12:02 pm #1205415130
Huns, anyone but Chastain winning for that awful Tammy Wynette mini series.April 30, 2023 at 11:14 am #1205415114
ugh I’m not sure about Adele this soon after her last era underperformed bar Easy on me. I’d rather a Christmas album that could easy rack up streams and sales. I just hope it’s a shift musically if it’s a studio album.
I love how Adele underperformance and flop era would be another artist PEAK and successful era. LolApril 30, 2023 at 10:59 am #1205415104
Kelly Clarkson is winning Best Pop Vocal Album.
Taylor can’t compete with those vocals.March 22, 2023 at 6:25 pm #1205360582
Huns, Ellis was
A bad nomination from the start. She got nominated to fill the quota.March 19, 2023 at 11:37 am #1205357156
Huns, this category went downhill after Mo’nique won the Oscar. It became the career Oscar award, the coattail award, and Ingenue award.March 18, 2023 at 5:15 am #1205356195
I don’t blame Michelle Williams for not going supporting. Best Actress nomination is better than a Supporting Actress golden dildo. Her priority is winning in lead she doesn’t want to take the easy route especially knowing the joke supporting actress Oscar has become.March 17, 2023 at 4:41 am #1205355178
Personal choices aside, I think this is the best and most memorable Oscars show since the last decade. And the reason is simple: they went commercial (which is good for business).
Everything Everywhere was a generally beloved hit. The general public were hypnotized by it.
Michelle Yeoh and Jamie Lee Curtis are super popular and likeable.
Brendan Fraser is also a popular figure who so many 80s and early 90s kids crushed on.
I don’t know much about Ke Huy Quan, but the general public seems to know him and they love him.
The nominees and performers:
Lady Gaga always breaks the trend table and Rihanna is always a hit. Naatu Naatu is very popular.
Angela Bassett is beloved, well known and respected + people were excited to see her again after all these years.
Austin Butler played Elvis.
Avatar: The Way of Water and Top Gun: Maverick were the commerical giants of the season.
Stephanie Hsu became popular instantly.
The Fabelmans was directed by Steven Spielberg.
Michael B Jordan and Jonathan Majors made a great pair and they’re super famous.
Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson are superstars.
Honestly, if they keep going this way, the ratings will never sink again. No need going for arthouse movies alone like only them can be award worthy
Hun, Oscar will keep flopping at ratings ever since they went woke. Imagine going from 50 million 5 years ago to 10-18 million. They cared more about Twitter woke opinions than General public.
I wouldn’t be shocked if we are experiencing the last leg of Oscar. It’ll end up becoming a matinee dinner where winners are announced on Twitter without anything televised by 2050.March 15, 2023 at 5:48 am #1205352749
Angelina is a great actress. She’ll get a nomination but we know Academy is too dumb to embrace the art house biopics of Pablo Larrain and give her a win.ReplyMarch 14, 2023 at 1:08 pm #1205352142
JLC’s win is obviously the most contentious win of the evening, and I get it. I personally would have liked to see Bassett win, but Curtis didn’t fail to give us a moment and I can’t say I’m upset about her winning in any way. Had Condon won, it would have been a very “same a usual” choice. She was excellent in Banshees, but I’m thrilled the Oscar went to a more out-of-the-box performance.
I’d liken Curtis’ win for her broadly comedic performance in this film to Laura Dern’s win for Marriage Story, a win that is also contentious here. I think both performances suit their films perfectly as comic relief, which is a really difficult tone balance to strike. I like seeing performances like this win because it’s refreshing to see something very un-baity take it now and then.
Hun, I get your point but that JLC performance wasn’t what you think it is 😂Not now
