I’ll take 1917 over problematic movies like Green Book
It’s definitely better than Green Book winning but in a year with so many better nominees it still sucks. It’s more of an “I’m not mad, just disappointed” situation.
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role - SAG Awards: 'Parasite' Wins Top Film Prize; 'Crown' and 'Mrs. Maisel' Named Best Drama, Comedy Series
Actors basically seem a like a lock now
The mentality of some Oscar voters on why J.Lo, Sandman, and Murphy were snubbed...
"First of all, ‘Hustlers’ is not an ‘Oscar movie.’ It’s a little too rough around the edges, and I’m assuming some other people in the acting category didn’t see it,” said a longtime character actor and Academy member. “Florence Pugh seems to have gotten the J.Lo spot — maybe because ‘Little Women’ is a prestige movie and she’s a bright, new star.
“Actors tend to think of Jennifer Lopez as a phenomenon more than an actress, per se. [It’s like last year, when] Lady Gaga lost the Oscar to Olivia Colman — a real actor’s actor.” And even those who enjoyed Sandler’s much-lauded performance in “Uncut Gems” said there remains a skepticism in Hollywood about viewing him as a serious actor. “That [performance] was a tour de force. He’s emerging as a truly great actor, but then he does cheesy Netflix comedies that are really dumb,” said the character actor. He admitted that, as with “Hustlers,” some voters may not even have bothered to watch Awkwafina’s “The Farewell” or Sandler’s “Uncut Gems.”
Last month, Sandler may have rubbed some of them the wrong way when he joked on Howard Stern’s show: “If I don’t get [the Oscar], I’m going to f–king come back and do [a movie] again that is so bad on purpose just to make you all pay.” “There was an arrogance to [Adam],” huffed a voting member. “It’s a lack of respect.”
In 2013, The Post wrote about insiders being miffed that Sandler was invited to join the Academy, the organization behind the Oscars. Calling Sandler and fellow inductee Beyoncé “unworthy,” one insider said: “They’re talented in their own ways, but is that what the Academy is about?”
As for Eddie Murphy, some voters disliked how hard he seemed to be campaigning for a nomination — including hosting “Saturday Night Live” after giving his old show the cold shoulder for 35 years. “I didn’t like his attempt for it,” said Moore.
How do they always find the dumbest people for these stories
I watched the 4 out of 5 nominated documentaries that are available on streaming this past weekend; American Factory and Edge of Democracy on Netflix, For Sama on Prime, and Honeyland on Hulu. Some really strong competition in that category.
Between the films that win and comments from voters like that, you would think people would stop watching, but people keep giving them the numbers to get their ad revenue.
they going host-less again this year?
you butter believe it
ugh last year's show was so boring. they need a host imo.
Hire Gil Faizon and George St. Geegland to host you cowards!!
Finally saw Parasite today, totally worth the hype. Knew absolutely nothing about it and it was so enjoyable as it unfolded. So now I’ve seen 7 BP nominees and I’m gonna rank ‘em since I doubt I’ll see the other two before the ceremony
3. The Irishman
5. Ford vs Ferrari
7. Marriage Story
Didn’t see: Little Women, Jo Jo
You gotta see Little Women.
see little women??
I wish I could unsee Arthur Clownman
I’m torn cuz I usually have no interest in period films but Lady Bird was my favorite movie of 2017
Don’t be torn, just go! Especially if that’s the case. Plus most of the nominees fall under that umbrella, but they’re all super different.
I liked that post before I saw Joker rated higher than Marriage Story
No offense, but your reason for not wanting to see Little Women makes no sense because your top film on that list is literally a period film lol
hell even Lady Bird is technically a period piece
Everyone knows period piece automatically means the 1800s or Victorian era.
But yeah Little Women is a banger go see it ASAP.
like flask said, i can be turned off from media that takes place prior to 20th century. It’s not fair to judge these stories, just my own bias
I wanna make a list but I still need to see JoJo and Ford v Ferrari.
top 3 is def
