I still have faith.
The GIF just confused me so much more lmaoMarch 13, 2023 at 9:09 pm #1205351400
I still remember how almost one year ago buzz was getting stronger on Yeoh’s role, and look at that, journey completed. Peace.March 13, 2023 at 9:05 pm #1205351391
Because my girl is never getting her Oscar, let me rank the winners from the last 10 years:
1. Cate in Blue Jasmine (impeccable; Leigh would be so proud)
2. Olivia in The Favourite (even though she won I will kidnap her dog as revenge)
3. Frances in 3BBOEM (I like that performance more every time I rewatch it)
4. Michelle in EEAAO (dynamic, dynamic, dynamic)
5. Jessica in TEOTF (I still gag at the chipmunk references, though)
6. Moore in Still Alice (I do pretend sometimes it was for Maps to the Stars ngl)
7. Renée in Judy
8. Frances in Nomadland (an unnecessary third Oscar)
9. Larson in Room (Furiosa exists)
10. Undeclared winner in the remaining year. What a mysteryMarch 13, 2023 at 8:42 pm #1205351360
We all know who is going to win:
NOT this. This is just second to the Close episode. That wig really was my mental health during those months, but to be honest it was really the last one when we had fun. Andra, Viola, Frances, Vanessa, and Carey really made of the category a hilarious back and forth.March 13, 2023 at 8:38 pm #1205351351
There really was multiple page-long discussion regarding Angela’s reaction, wasn’t there? I see why some people would point it out, but with so many replies one would think you are all figuring out the climate change crisis while getting your degree in Medicine.
We’re really a mess.March 13, 2023 at 11:15 am #1205350760
FYC for next year – Character actress Margo Martindale in Cocaine Bear! Like.. let’s do it Academy.
I gotta watch THIS.March 13, 2023 at 9:44 am #1205350568
I don’t know what to say.March 13, 2023 at 9:38 am #1205350550
Something else people make fun of, and I consider it a big factor in her win (we’ve established it wasn’t only about the performance) is the Halloween franchise. She basically resurrected that series twice and in 2018 the reboot revitalized the slasher subgenre: Scream, X, and more are linked to H2018 success. People may look down on horror, but her case is unique. A recognized and constantly working Actress linked to a franchise for now 45 years? Eventually, she embraced it (made good money from it as well), which has been seen as refreshing because most actors hide it under the carpet. When she mentioned the original in the “I Am an Actor” bit at SAG and the crowd went insane, I knew something was coming.March 13, 2023 at 8:59 am #1205350473
That’s a really good point. JLC’s campaign helped EEAO’s campaign. As much as Stephanie Hsu had the best performance (IMHO) in the category, JLC’s campaign most definitely helped to get Stephanie in at the Oscars (that BAFTA longlist snub is telling). We will never know to what extent it helped but Michelle Yeoh and the Daniels definitely benefitted from JLC being a ‘weapon of mass promotion’. The SAG Awards will remain the highlight of the season for me. The JLC and MY wins were so unexpected and set the tone for the conclusion of the season. JLC mentioned on James Corden that she told the entire EEAO team to go all in and that they should try to get EVERYTHING! She helped to build so much momentum for the film so I can’t be mad at her for getting EEAO everything!
I just know Glenn is calling JLC to hire her.March 13, 2023 at 8:55 am #1205350462
Angela Bassett did not do the thing
Ariana really was her undoing lolMarch 12, 2023 at 11:13 pm #1205349719
I’m not unhappy that Butler didn’t get the Oscar. At all lmao. Talk about an entitled creature who got on many people’a nerves.March 12, 2023 at 11:09 pm #1205349715
Truly a moment!
I know the time will come where a worthy Latina will join them. I’m glad Halle was there to be part of this because it’s been documented how bittersweet it’s been for her all this time.March 12, 2023 at 11:05 pm #1205349707
I feel sad for Angela, but that doesn’t mean I’m getting so trash like the anti JLC trolls that suddenly are foaming at the mouth. You can’t be that basic and claim that you didn’t see this coming after the SAG speech and the way that movie obliterated everyone this year.
As a genre fan who knows some icons never get their due, and also understands that is never just about the performance (hello, Hong Chau in The Menu nowhere to be seen), congrats to Jamie. Fuck Twitter and its unemployed crowd.March 12, 2023 at 10:58 pm #1205349687
It’s funny how we have a year where Cate Blanchett loses for her career best performance and then have other years where Renee Zellweger and Sandra Bullock win for clownery. Academy really is a joke. Lmao
jeez, even I have to say… take something for your stomach or try breathing. The meltdowns you’re having are so over the top.March 1, 2023 at 10:46 am #1205327847
Danielle Deadwyler really should have been in contention for that Oscar. I can’t shake that performance off.Not now
