90th Academy Awards nominations

Recommended Posts

I had hoped that the underlying Mudbound noms might lead to best picture. At least we can lay the Netflix bias aside. 

 

Also with the whole academy voting in animation I think we can see now that the lack of Lego in 2014 wasn't a fluke. Also LBM sucked so there lol.

For people who hate the Oscars:

 

 

Spoiler

Yes. The Game Awards is a 'real' thing that's hosted on the internet. This guy does too much coke apparently and made 3 minutes worth of some funny cringe

He's quickly becoming, as someone said earlier, the male Meryl Streep. Probably the only actors working right now who can coast to noms (or even wins, in the case of Meryl's most recent Oscar) for films that nobody care about based on name alone.

Yeah, I was definitely surprised when they went with Affleck over him last year.  However, that wouldn’t have happened in this years climate.

I hope Shape Of Water and Get Out run the table.

 

LOLs:

- Armie Hammer is totally the Fetch of Hollywood

- Logan for Best Adapted Screenplay

- Martin McDonagh Denied Best Director

 

YASs:

- Rachel Morrison for Best Cinematography

- Jordan Peele for Best Director

- Daniel Kaluuya for Best Actor

- The Big Sick for Best Original Screenplay

- An Almost Post Shut Out

- Shape Of Water leading the Nominations

 

WTFs:

- I, Tonya snubbed Best Picture and Hair & Make Up

- BATB for Best Costumes. Belle’s dress was a travesty

To think people for a while were saying The Shape of Water had lost all momentum from its Golden Lion win back in the summer and was going to be forgotten come awards season, here it is with 13 noms and certain to win at least several, potentially many of them.

Plummer getting nominated for a role Spacey would have never been recognized for:

he was not in the running in the first place, it was a comedy performance, comedies don't get oscars. If the golden globes did not have a comedy divide he wouldn't have been nominated there either.

Trying to decide if I should nix the spreadsheet or do alterations.  My predicts were only a marginal improvement from last year, and I think the base assumption that Oscar noms are made up by a cumulation of precursors is at the least flawed.

I'm coasting on PTA getting in over McDonagh for the rest of the day.

I hate seeing The Big Sick get left out. It was so funny, heartfelt, and good!! Oh well!

Gotta love how everyone said Octavia Spencer's career would instantly become irrelevant after she won six years ago and yet she's come back with double nominations (and in back-to-back years too). Your favorite actors would never.

Why not? Because hollywood are a big bunch of self-congratulating suckers who will leech onto anything that makes them popular and rich?

I think when someone gets snubbed due to a few attention seekers with a twitter account, it deserves bringing up

I does not matter because the bulk of voting was already done. I think some of y'all need to re-examine your knowledge of how this process works.
