I feel like 10 years from now everybody's gonna be looking back at this year's overall Oscar nominations with a lot of "how did that happen?" reactions.

Because they actually recognise half of the movies that were nominated for once? Sounds like a good thing to me.

Bohemian Rhapsody's best picture nomination is like if The Greatest Showman got nominated last year.  The only difference being that The Greatest Showman is a good movie.

This is so stupid. BR makes more than $200m dom, $800m WW. Rami won't be forgotten even if he hadn't received any awards nor nominations.

It is still better than down in 10 years, nobody talk about Oscar.....or we a new category is born, best popular film and that is the only one that people talk about.

10 years? I still can't find anyone in my real life who can actually remember the name of the best picture winner LAST YEAR. lol.

It is not that hard to see how BR get in, 800m+ for a non-VFX/action movie? It is the highest grossing non-VFX fare of all time! Fueled by the insane leg of its run! 

 

And, why should the academy always listen to the critics? Critics don't own the oscar, Oscars do not have the obligation of compliant to critics's choice. And, BR is the rare occurrence that oscars don't agree with critics but for most of the time, about 90% of the films are endorsed by the critics. Shouldn't that be enough? Or critics just a bunch of elite that always see them as the definition of "Correctness"? No wonder Trump can win the election. Because the elite just refuse to communicate with the mass public, and all the social flow stuck.  

 

Critics vs Audience? In the case of BR, Oscar declare that audience is the winner, Period.

I certainly don’t agree with some of the nominees that the Oscars have chosen but I won’t deny that this is the first time in a while where I’ve talked to folks and they’re actually interested in the nominees. Usually they can name like 1 movie lol But I’ve talked to several classmates the last couple days and most of them have watched over half of the best picture nominees and plan to watch the ones they haven’t yet so they can pick which is their favorite.

So true.

 

BR is insanely beloved by GA and no amount of negative online articles/tweets/comments/reactions can convince me otherwise.

 

Which is why I find the tweet about Rami being forgotten for such iconic role stupid AF.

Non-vfx? Are you kidding me? Did you leave the film early before they got to Wembley stadium?

 

Should have been nominated for best animated feature...

ITSV's combo of audience and critics reception, looking at the way it's holding up post Holidays I felt it would get a best Picture nomination. Don't mean to sound like a conspiracy theorists but do those who make a big portion of the Academy jury feel insecure about animations getting more limelight? They do push actors behind the scenes. You may recognise voices of already successful actors but the technical team and writers do get more credit in animation I feel.

Lmao at “Rami” being forgotten. An actor isn’t remembered for the awards they win but for the work they put out there. Besides the Oscars mostly award shitty non-factor movies/roles - which have no chance at being remembered since nobody has seen them to begin with. Bohemian Rhapsody grossed over 800 million and is LOVED by the general audience. It’s also attached to one of the biggest bands of all time. The movie and the role will certainly be remembered - with or without the Oscars (which are btw dying and decreasing in ratings every year).

No it will forever be associated with Queen. Whenever someone wants to explore them on a deeper level they’ll watch that movie or see it mentioned.

Whenever I want to explore musicians' work on a deeper level my first thought is to go and watch other people's impressions of them
