I am not against campaigning, but Phoenix’ approach does make me respect him even more.December 14, 2019 at 11:19 am #1203236102
Do you have any arguments of your own?
Joaquin explored the character’s inner conflict more thoroughly in a way that the whole movie plays as a constant struggle until the breaking point and he sells the story. He excelled at the mannerisms, voice and reactions every time. The last act is as sinister as it gets due to his transition and he makes both roles, Arthur Fleck and Joker, his own. Moreover, he shows all the possible layers a comic book character could possibly have based on the society-man conflicts portrayed.
Adam was very accomplished, but there were moments where his performance didn’t work for me. One example of this was the fight. Scarlett really delivered where he did not. Driver is probably winning the Oscar, though. AMPAS will continue to play it safe.December 13, 2019 at 1:06 pm #1203235249
I’ll trade you Erivo and Ronan for Lupita.

This thread has some of the worst arguments I have ever read. It reeks of a cat fight over which boy band is better. The stans for both actors are equally fucking annoying.December 12, 2019 at 7:24 am #1203233496
Adam Driver deserves to win over Joaquin Phoenix.
I can claim the exact opposite statement. Guys, the way you presented that performance has been overhype at its best. Scarlett is truly the MVP of that movie.December 10, 2019 at 4:21 pm #1203229825
Just watched a clip with Erivo’s “surprising” reaction to the GG nod… wow. Such a headache.
For everything that is pure and holy in the world, don’t let AMPAS nominate this woman… so annoyingly undeserving.December 9, 2019 at 12:03 pm #1203227503
No to: DiCaprio and Ronan
Yes to: Banderas and LupitaDecember 9, 2019 at 9:10 am #1203227087
The Safdies are great directors, and Sandler always does well when paired with a good director (Punch-Drunk Love, The Meyerowitz Stories). This is genuinely one of the best performances of the year in one of the best films of the year! I’ll also take this opportunity to push the Safdies’ past two films: go watch Heaven Knows What and Good Time!
I do take into account your recommendations, baby. I’ll give my Sandler voodoo doll a rest.December 9, 2019 at 7:34 am #1203226795
Lupita already has an Oscar anyway so it’s fine. It’s plenty of black directors out there who will eventually give her the leading roles she deserves. She will rise again
It’s not over until nomination morning. I can see a strong case for the three locked (the media with such basic coverage of them doesn’t help), but not having Lupita because of Ronan in that overdone role just doesn’t seem right.
Is AMPAS really that nervous for having a previous POC winner nominated again, this time in the Lead category? Are they so weak?
