Alfre Woodard was robbed. She should have gotten nominated for Clemency even though it was not a box office hit. I am sure Renee will win it for playing a caricature of Judy.

Super Comic Fun Time! said...

I haven't seen any of the movies. Where's End Game?

Moose said...

Can someone provide a good reason why we should care that all the directors are male (one being Asian), and only 1 of the 20 acting nods is for a woman of color?

I don't mean to oppose diversity - but if the point of this award show is to have your peers recognize the best of the bunch, shouldn't we be more concerned that outstanding performances get recognized, rather than counting how many of each sex/race/... got a nod?

Do Tell said...

I'd like to see

Best Picture: "JoJo Rabbit" or "Joker"

Best Actor: Joaquin Phoenix

Best Supporting Actor: Joe Pesci or Brad Pitt

Best Actress: Charlize Theron or Saoirse Ronan

Best Supporting Actress: Scarlett Johanssson, "JoJo Rabbit"

Best Director: Quentin Tarantino

Do Tell said...

Actors nominate and vote on actors, which I think is how it should be. So people who don't like it can blame them.

Phoenician said...

@moose, I think the concern is that certain people's work is being disregarded because of race and/or gender. It isn't so much a complaint of inclusion, as it is good old fashioned prejudice.

i'm hungry said...

Joker and Joaquin Phoenix.... even after that blind.Poor,guy. He's head must be super messed up...

Do Tell said...

It's perception and opinion.

I wonder how uncomfortable the Endgame actors were when it was said that Marvel was going to push them for nominations. I'm certain they are all very happy to be part of that universe, but I'm supposing that the major players in Avengers world that have nominations history probably would prefer to be recognized for other work and were happy to let Oscar noms go to other actors this year.

J said...

Don't like Brad Pitt, but he was good in Once Upon a Time.

E said...

@DoTell is right, so this means Hollywood isn't as woke as they think? 😆

Brayson87 said...

I had little to no interest in seeing most of the Best Picture nominations and the ones I did see were punishment. I'll probably catch the rest on a streamer later.

DGAF about the directing noms.
DGAF about the lead actor noms as long as it isn't Driver.
Always love Saoirse Ronan.
DGAF about the supporting actress noms.
DGAF about the supporting actor noms although Hanks has been giving me the creeps lately.
And really DGAF about the rest of show in general. Props to the Academy for not hiring a host. It's a waste of money for such crappy ratings and too difficult to find someone who is actually funny and woke enough to host.

However if just one actor or actress will admit on stage that they had to suck d!ck to get their award, I will start watching again next year.

BRAD PITT said...

Uncut Gems deserved best actor, best director

Do Tell said...

You're right. Adam Driver should never have been nominated, unless it was for Best Performance By A Telephone Pole.

Freebird said...

I want to watch Marriage Story on Netflix, but is it gonna be a big downer and trigger all my horrible memories of divorce? That’s my fear & why I haven’t watched it. My ex walked out on me & our 2 lil boys and never looked back. Hurt me, that’s fine. But hurt my kids? F you. They are grown men now, but each have permanent emotional scars from what he put them through. I rarely ever discuss it, because it gets me so pissed off. The only other option is Irishman, and everyone says it’s excruciatingly boring. I’ll have to wait til the others come to the bargain cinema.

Do Tell said...

BTW, the song is called "I'm Gonna Love ME Again". So congrats to Elton John and Bernie Taupin on their Oscar nom!

Alf Landon said...

The one clip of Driver and Scarlett arguing was cringe worthy.
How is pedo Hanks a supporting actor?

Do Tell said...

I just thought Marriage Story was forced and contrived and not all that engaging.

SeijnSei said...

"Joker" was trash.

Just as it seems we are making strides to more diverse nominations we take a huge step back.

nancer said...

'marriage story' was horrible, IMO. only bright spot was adam driver, who's good in everything. but the movie was NOT good.
none of this shit is oscar worthy. this country no longer makes anything but commercial blockbusters, 'franchises', retreads, sequels and cartoons for adults. even when they DO something about real people---like 'marriage story', it sucks.
i like to look at the dresses before the show, and then i turn it off.

Do Tell said...

I cannot believe Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson were completely shut out. Each of them, Pattinson ESPECIALLY, should have been nominated. Driver's nomination should have gone to him. One of the Supporting Actor noms should have been Dafoe's.

Zebra Seasoning said...

Surprised that Edgerton didn't get a nod, I know the GGs are kind of a joke, but he was really really good.

And I agree with Alf Landon (to a point) How is the lead of a movie considered a supporting role?

Do Tell said...

Nobody deserves a nomination based on sex, orientation or ethnicity.

Anonymous said...

Either it's an international film or it's not. Not fair competing in both categories.
Either it's a cable movie or it's not. No fair competing in multiple categories.
It's a big snooze.
1917 and Parasite will sweep with maybe a token Oscar to the black lady to avoid racism charges. Between now and ceremony all we are going to hear is "Oscars so White" again.
They will find a way to shut Joker out completely to appease the haters.
I kind of wish the Oscars were fun again and they would give a nomination to someone like J-Lo just for kicks.
The only other funny thing to think about is how everyone involved in Cats thought they would be riding high today. I bet Swift and Hudson just knew they were going to be nominated for BSA.
Oscars are just boring and stupid and not even worth mentioning after today.

Sd Auntie said...

You said it Brayson. The voters are all over 70 for the looks of it.😴😴

Sd Auntie said...

No they are not and same people year after a clique.

Anonymous said...

Sorry not even cable movie...I meant streaming movie for Marriage Story or Divorce Story or whatever the heck it is. This is not a good precedent. Every streaming service will now have a release every year and compete for things that are not seen by anyone but their subscribers. Another way to make money I guess. So is it also going to compete for Emmys?

Anonymous said...

It is the same people every year. The Darlings. The Academy is still a bunch of old Jewish men who let their mistresses, wives and girlfriends tell them who to vote for. That's all it has ever been and all it will ever be.

Do Tell said...

And here we go, it begins.

cocktailhour said...

Still can't get over how #GoldenGlobesSoMale and #OscarsSoMale haven't taken off.
(They're very popular with my secret work twitter's two followers!)

Do Tell said...

Probably because there are a record number of women nominated for Oscars this year, 62.

Bleu said...

I love how Charlize Theron and Margot Robbie get nominated for Bombshell while Hollywood and the press continue to write articles trashing the women who actually brought down Roger Ailes. Hollywood is a just a gigantic steaming turd of hypocrisy.

Em and 'im said...

I’ve only seen two films on the list JoJo Rabbit and The Irishman. JoJo Rabbit was the better film. The Irishman dragged. No standout performances in either of them. The votes are probably rigged well in advance, and while they have too many old geezers with the voting rights, the best films and performances rarely win and few make it to the nomination stage. It’s more of a pat on the back for the same inner circle.

Soapdish said...

I hated marriage story.

Scarlet Peaches said...

Is Parasite any good? I really want to see it, but putting on pants and leaving the house is unlikely this week

Aquagirl said...

Loved Parasite!

Unknown said...

Irishman is NOT Oscar level work. It's not awful, but it's not the best movie this year.

Sunkist said...

Best Picture: Once Upon a Time

Best Actor: Antonio Banderas

Best Supporting Actor: Brad Pitt

Best Actress: Squinty Zelleweger

Best Supporting Actress: Kathy Bates

Best Director: Quentin Tarantino

Gator said...

I thought Judy was a good film, Renee Zellwegger was amazing in it. But....I'm just glad old J-Lo didn't get nominated. We all know she got up ultra early this morning expecting it.

AListDiva said...

I think Phoenix is a lock for Best Actor, and Zellweger too, but she could get upset. Best Picture is hard to say, 1917 or Once upon a time... I think this is Brad's year to win and he should! He was phenomenal and stole the whole movie from Leo. I'm guessing Laura Dern will win, a first for Netflix!

Unknown said...

How was Cats not nominated for best costume design? It's an outrage! An outrage, I tell you!!

Do Tell said...

Scarlett Johansson was quite good in JoJo Rabbit. I hope she wins Supporting.

JS said...

This isn't like the days of "ET" where everyone had to see a certain movie. I saw one on the list - wasn't impressed. Industry is just giving awards to movies no-one has seen.

fionafab said...

I saw only one film in a theater this year; THE IRISHMAN. I read the book when it came out and was shocked I had never heard of Sheeran. Been away from NYC for a long time. Came back for a couple of weeks and went to see it with my best friend of many decades. She slept through the entire thing. I realized it was the last time I would see the ensemble. Made me super sad.

I realize this was on Netflix, and not considered a movie-movie, but Mindhunter mesmerized me this year. I had never heard of Holt McCallany nor Cameron Britton, but they blew me out of the water with their performances. If Scorsese ever decides to do a film about Vincent 'Chin' Gigante, Holt McCallany is his guy. Perfect match. Holt's mom, by the way, was the late, great goddess singer Julie Wilson! The only award-winning performances I watched this last year. Joe Pesci is my all time fave, though. He was great.

Brondie63 said...

Who cares?

StubblyHubble said...

Parasite for sure & The Lighthouse was amazing. I liked Joker, that's it.

stg said...

I saw 1917 in the theater this weekend and it was really good. I'm not a big war movie but I was impressed that it was one long continuous shot. I thought it made the movie mesmerizing. It also helped that Andrew Scott had a part in it. I'd watch him watch paint dry.

BRAD PITT said...

@ Freebird

you'll love Marriage Story its real and it has a happy ending trust me

oh btw the secret to enjoying The Irishman is watch joe pesci scenes and skip the rest

BRAD PITT said...

@ Do Tell

Nobody deserves a nomination based on sex, orientation or ethnicity

i agree 100%

notthisagain said...

Little Women didn’t deserve a best picture nod but the Academy loves Gerwig & Baumbach, big surprise. Gerwig never had to work hard to get to the directors chair w/all the unprecedented additional perks. Definitely helps being an established, oscar nom’d director’s muse (& side chick during ur breakout role ofc, but thats another story for another day undermining her pro-woman BS).

Wake me up when a female filmmaker who actually hustled & put in the time/work, instead fasttracking as a Woody Allen wannabe’s ‘inspiration’ to get there, gets nominated. Until then same ol same ol.

Drewholtaus said...

Me too. Not a fan of scar ho

Freebird said...

Oh good. Then I’m not missing much by skipping it.

Freebird said...

Oooh, good to know, Aquagirl! And I’m with you, Scarlet - having to put on pants always sucks!

TwoDots said...

Money’s on Pitt.

NM, I didn't see the whole post. Cheers!

Freebird said...

Cool, thanks!

JS said...

Same old, same old. Can someone new please get nominated.

Do Tell said...

There were some new nominees this year, actually.

DJS NOLA said...

who cares what race someone is... either the work was awardwprthy or it wasnt... but i do wonder why we need to break it down by sex too... why not bast actor overall

Half Domer Homer said...

1917 rules the roost on this one. Unbelievable movie!
