    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.

    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.

    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.

    I’m torn cuz I usually have no interest in period films but Lady Bird was my favorite movie of 2017
  20. EASheartsVinyl


    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.

    Always do the right thing. Prestigious

    I liked that post before I saw Joker rated higher than Marriage Story

    Human Typo Prestigious

    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

    top 3 is def
    Little Women
    The Irishman
