I have not see a single one of these movies.

sandybrook said...

I want Bale and Ali. I will probably get Rami Malek and Ali.

Nutty_Flavor said...

The Oscar voter quoted in the Hollywood Reporter's "Brutally Honest Oscar Ballot" says Rami has it locked up.

"[Bohemian Rhapsody's] Rami Malek is going to win — everywhere I've gone, Rami Malek was there; he's a very charming fellow. I've now spent more time with him than I have with my dog."

MontanaMarriott said...

Wishing for Bale and Ali but most likely it will go to Malek and Sam Elliott.

MDAnderson said...

Cooper and Ali. Really like Ali in True Detective. Cooper is obnoxious but he really was good in ASIB

Do Tell said...

I can't believe one-note Adam Driver is nominated for anything. Money CAN buy an Oscar nomination.

sandybrook said...

It would be great to see good old Sam Elliott win something for once.

Spekulatius said...

Rami and Ali... boring.

Tricia13 said...

Sadly Malek.
Rooting for Rockwell b/c he’s a great guy and Grant because it’s somlkng coming.
Ali will probably get it and he deserves it as well-fierce talent

Do Tell said...

Still rooting for Willem Dafoe, who actually deserves it.

Tricia13 said...

Long time *

Alf Landon said...

Really don't care and haven't seen a new movie in years, but I guess the gay guy and the muslim guy since the winners have to be PC

Nutty_Flavor said...

I saw the Richard E. Grant performance on a long airplane flight. He was fine, but basically playing the same role he always plays.

Sam Elliot was just stiff in A Star is Born. Not an Oscar-winning performance.

Everyone I know over age 65 loooooooved Green Book. Ali winning might be a way to award that film, which doesn't look like it's going to get Best Picture.

notthisagain said...

obviously rami malek will win.

the Academy isnt known for doing the right thing - they literally gave the best director oscar to Polanski while he was in hiding in europe bc he didnt want to come back and get his prize and risk serving his sentence for the rape and sodomy of a 13 year old girl. things havent changed of course. adrien brody's situation reminds me a lot of Malek's.

Fox knows the Academy doesn't give a damn that Malek lied. And they certainly don't care about Bryan Singer.

Malek's lie will be on record forever. He already has his trophy in the bag, but what happens for the rest of his life I'm actually more interested in.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Gee, someone in Hollywood lying. Shock surprise.

Will Meryl's lies about Harvey Weinstein follow her for the rest of her career?

What about Leo and Jho Low? Will Leo never get another chance at a good role?

@nutty

I dont know how ancient you are, or if you've been paying attention, but there's a tide thats being changed - this old guard where people shrug off lies like this (and people like you), and the people (usually younger) that remember, point out, fight back, clapback, and do all the things you nutty has complained about on here before.

things change all the time with each generation coming into their own. people en masse continue to call out Meryl, how JLaw was one of Harvey's girls. I mean, you can huff and confidently say nothing will change.

But if anything generationally and historically has been shown - you're wrong - and there's nothing you can do about as you shuffle to your death while the humans newer than you take over.

KittensRUs said...

Malek will win. I would pick Dafoe.

Ali will win and I don't really have an opinion on that one...I haven't seen most of those yet. Elliott wasn't that great in ASAB although I do love him.

Best Actor:

Should Win: Christian Bale
Will Win: Remi Malek


Best Supporting Actor:

Should Win: Sam Elliott
Will Win: Sam Elliott

@nutty

"Will Meryl's lies about Harvey Weinstein follow her for the rest of her career? What about JLaw??"

and to answer your question - yes, those bad things/lies/etc will follow their careers. you can deny that all you want - but they will, and they still are. Just because you're in your own little world and not paying attention to the sea change doesn't mean it isnt happening.

*big hug* it'll be ok.

longtimereader said...

Blame fox, queen and the producers for singer, not the actor looking for a gig who has no power over the decision. Malek and Ali for the win. I'm loving him in true detective as well.

Moose said...

Viggo and Grant deserve the wins. They were both fantastic.

Nutty_Flavor said...

I doubt I'm in my "own little world."

I was on a transatlantic flight last week, on a European airline with a very good movie selection. Black Panther was on offer, A Star is Born, Can You Ever Forgive Me, Black Kkklansman, and Bohemian Rhapsody, plus about 50 other films, past and present, Western, Chinese, and Bollywood.

About halfway through the flight I went to the galley to get an orange juice, and as I walked back through the cabin in the dark I noticed that nearly everyone watching a movie was watching BoRap. People just love that film.

notthisagain said...

@Nutty

Nutty says: WOW OMG TRANSATLANTIC FLIGHT OMG EUROPEAN AIRLINE OMG A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE WATCHING BORHAP OMG

Nutty means: there is no change, there will never be no change, there's isnt a change happening, everything is fine!

Humor Me said...

Actor - hoping for christian Bale, but Rami will win for rhapsody.
Supporting Actor - hoping for either Rockwell, or Elliot, but Ali will win for Green Book.

notthisagain said...

Im talking about generational changes, evolving morals/perceptions and a general sea change but.....thats not true because LOOK AT MY FLIGHT OMG ALL THESE PEOPLE EVERYWHERE WATCHING BORHAP

yes sweetie, cause thats how time works. totally comparable to your flight.

Silver Girl said...

Actor: Malek (should be Dafoe)
Supporting: Ali (should be Grant)

Aquagirl said...

+1 @Humor Me

Cassie said...

Would like to see: Bale/ Rockwell

Nutty_Flavor said...

There will be change, but probably not the specific change you are hoping for.

BTW, claiming superiority based on a specific birth year is as dumb as claiming superiority based on gender or skin color. It makes you look foolish.

Bale and Vice will win for Best Makeup and Hair. But Vice wasn't seen much outside the coasts, and even the outlets that were politically aligned with its point of view didn't give it very good reviews. Also, Bale is a jerk who is not widely liked in Hollywood. I will be surprised if he wins.

Chris P said...

Rami did a good job but honestly I thought he was wooden and too young to pull it off well. Just my opinion as an old Queen fan.

DarylsBigFan said...


People are starving.
Kids are missing.
There are real problems.
WHO CARES ABOUT BRADLEY COOPER.

Nutty_Flavor said...

I dunno. Rami is 37 years old, and Freddie was 45 when he died.

If you're going to play ages23 to 45, 37 isn't a bad place to do that.

FWIW Sacha Baron Cohen is 47. years old.

notthisagain said...

@Nutty

Nobody is claiming superiority based on a birth year. There ARE people like yourself that simply don't want change, or want it to be so small it doesn't make a difference. You laugh at the thought that newer generations can make a change, or try to hold people responsible. A lot of younger people use the internet for activism, like the metoo movement, and use it to clapback towards people who are used to no one giving a damn (like you). Thats been done with Bryan Singer, Meryl Streep, Malek, etc. I mean, feel free to laugh at it and think nothing specific will come of it.

I mean, you will be dead and progress will still happen. Sorry...? :-) :-)


Weekittylass said...

JFC Nutty, someone got triggered. Ranting and lecturing on a gossip blog post is as useful as nipples on a breastplate. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. It is not an invitation for a point by point debate. This is not an echo chamber blog. Carry that shit to Huffpoor Salon.

Weekittylass said...

Ha ha Huffpoor Salon. It’s a typo and it stays. Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.

ComeTheApocalypseI'mInCharge said...

Super Comic Fun Time! said...

I'll go with Malek and Driver.

Jeff said...

Christian Bale / Sam Rockwell

tehbird said...

I don’t care and it doesn’t matter, it’s all rigged. It’s all about who paid who and who had sex with who and who did unspeakable things with children in order to get parts. Hollywood isn’t going to be able to keep this under wraps for much longer... it’s all part of the great awakening...

Darkmyst said...

Malek will win but Bale should.

Who knows on best supporting. It's one of the strongest fields for an Oscar category ever. Not really a wrong choice here.

lightgirl said...

I too think Rami's Oscar is bought and paid for.
My picks: Viggo Mortenson and Richard E. Grant.
Viggo was excellent in Green Book.

lightgirl said...

Who I think WILL win: Rami Malek and Sam Rockwell

Glue said...

+1 Sandybrook - Love Sam Elliott! He's the unsung hero of the supporting actor world.

txredhd said...

I hope it's Malek and Rockwell. I don't get the hate for BR. Everyone I know who saw it enjoyed it.

Count Jerkula said...

Bale in an anti-cheyney vote by the loon commie hollyweirdos

Elliott in a lifetime acheivement award.

I see you said...

I think Remi although I prefer Dafoe.
I prefer Elliot but I think Driver.

Bale in a dark horse so that they can politically pontificate.

How I wish these award shows stayed away from politics and social issues. People who make believe for a living do not influence me on any issues of import.

rosie riveter said...

What about claiming superiority due to being a younger parent tho

rosie riveter said...

Christian Bale reminds me EXACTLY of my white trash cousin in Arizona. Can't ever take him seriously

Chica said...

Rami Malek he did a superb job ( didn’t see the William DeFoe Film)

Ali though he should have Ben nominated for best actor and not supporting. Could have given Rami and Bale a hard time.

YES! Blame Brian May, Roger Taylor and Graham King for hiring Bryan Singer and demanding that if Fox wanted the film they had to be ok with Singer. Fox should have the balls to say No even if it was woman exec.

zerooptions said...

Jon Bernthal - The Punisher

daneff said...

I want Bale and Ali

daneff said...

Re: what I just said-- Bale may be an asshat, but he IS a fuck of an actor. Ali, I haven't heard much about, but he too, is a fuck of an actor. Willem Dafoe by all accounts is a nice guy and great actor who deserves his due, but as per usual won't get it. And what is probably the biggest cash shower of all, they're having the actual group Queen open the show?!?! Can there be any question, folks?

jane_heir said...

Rami and Richard.

Freckles said...

Bale, Ali....at least I hope that's who wins

Aquagirl said...

Does anyone else here have the hots for Sam Elliott? He is way too old for me but I’d do him in a second.

MDAnderson said...

@ aquagirl out of the ten guys he would only come second to Viggo!! He is very hot.

Sekrit said...

Viggo and Mahershala.

With lots of money and PR crap thrown around? Rami and Mahershala, possibly Sam

Aquagirl said...

@MD: I thought everyone reading would know that Viggo is a given. Yum.

MattDaddy said...

Bale was flippin' amazeballs in that movie. He WAS Dick Cheney.

Rami will win for the simple reason that he gave a very emotional performance. Americans relate to emotion and struggling through odds.

Strawberry Kiwi said...

Pretty sure Rami Malek will win Best Actor. I really wish I could fast forward to two weeks after the damn Oscars just to have it finally over with. I swear the past three months have actually lasted a few years! Wake me when it’s over.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Did you see the list of Best Picture presenters?

Serena Williams, chef José Andrés, Queen Latifah, Diego Luna (from Narcos), Tom Morello (from Rage against the Machine), Amandla Stenberg, Trevor Noah, Mike Myers, Dana Carvey, Congressman John Lewis (who will get a big standing ovation)...and Barbra Streisand.

So...Latifah and Streisand are the only two there who have been nominated for Oscars, correct?

It'll be interesting to see how they pair the presenters up with movies. I hope it's not as obvious as Luna with Roma, Morello with Vice, Lewis with Klansman and/or Green Book, Serena with Black Panther, Myers with BoRap, etc, but I fear it will be.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Streisand is going to introduce "A Star is Born", inevitably.

memyselfandi said...

Who should: Bale/Rockwell
Who will: Malek/Ali

Infidel said...

don't give a flying fuck

We're currently witnessing the sunset of Hollywood.
Unless there will be dramatic change very soon, they will never ever recover. EVER.

Anne T. said...

What matters today is not whose peers voted to give them an award but who made the most money... I agree with @Infidel that the sun has set on Hollywood

ardleighstreet said...

I'm hoping for Willem Dafoe to take it.

Sagan said...

Haven't seen ANY of these movies.

I see Malek as a one-hit-wonder with his turn as Freddy.

Too bad The Teeth weren't nominated for Best Actor.

I'd love to see Cooper and Ali, but I have a feeling it'll be Malek and Ali.
