I was gonna do this later, so thanks for saving me the time :smashin:

It's a strong year this year, really not sure how I feel about Best Picture.

Think I'd have to choose Joker, but not seen 1917 yet, and then there's the small matter of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood too.

Five of those Best Picture nominees are easily deserving.
Two of them are bonkers choices and two I haven't seen.

I will not be revealing which fall into which category. You can all stew.

Addendum:
Do I really want Adam Driver to beat Joaquin Phoenix for best actor?
I think I do!

2nd Addendum:
Best actor really is the only award that deserves to go to Joker. Maybe editing.
If Todd Phillips wins director I will eat everyone's hats.

Delighted for Parasite. Great achievement. :)

Edit: Although I've not seen it yet, I was half expecting Adam Sandler to receive a nomination given the buzz around Uncut Gems.

Delving into the lesser-talked-about categories, I think Alan Silvestri really deserved a nomination for Endgame (definitely moreso than Star Wars), and I'm surprised that didn't get something in the sound categories either.

I kind of see what you're saying, but I found the Endgame score very workmanlike. In exactly the same way as the Rise of Skywalker score, actually. Both of them knew what beats and motifs to hit for the fans and they jammed them in, whether they particularly belonged or not.

I know horror is always snubbed by the Academy but the soundtrack to Midsommar was breathtaking and I'm disappointed not to see it recognised.

Lot of people making a lot of fuss about Joker’s 11 nominations I see. Likely only end up bagging a couple I’d think. The academy tends to share them out these days.

I'm also quite disappointed at Alan Silvestri not getting nominated for his magnificent Endgame score. Some of his finest recent work, and far and away the best music ever heard in the MCU.

In it's absence, I'll be rooting for 1917.

Usual list, no surprises really.

I find it disappointing that films such as Endgame don’t get the rewards they deserve.
Yes, some of the best picture nominees are probably great films but when a film makes 2.8b I think that warrants a it more inclusion.

That being said, I'm very iffy on whether the Academy will be giving a bunch of top prizes to a Netflix movie again. Even more so for two.

Also I've said Best Actress for Renee Zellwegger. And I might sway towards Once Upon a Time for Best Director. Hollywood loves a film about Hollywood and I don't think Tarantino has ever had a director win. It might get a sympathy Oscar like The Departed for Scorsese

I've not seen enough yet really to give an accurate assessment, but I'd be mortified if Phoenix doesn't get the Oscar for Joker.

Parasite
has to be a shoe-in for the International gong.

I have a sneaky feeling Tarantino might get the director award for Hollywood, I can't see that film coming away with nothing major.

And Best Picture I have a feeling is going to go to 1917.

I think both Actress categories looks pretty hard to call, but I think Scarlett Johansson might get one of them!

With Endgame too, she's had a very big year.

I've seen 1 of the 9 best film nominations so far.:blush:

On that basis, I've not a lot to say on the matter :censored::D

Parasite best film of the year for my followed by very very closely by The Joker.

Wouldn’t be surprised if Joker and Parasite walk away with the least amount of awards despite most nominations.

Yes I can see this being one of those Oscars with a lot of potential winners getting a smattering of gongs. No individual film will probably get more than 3.

I agree totally and I will happily die on the hill in that Endgame should have been up for Best Picture.

Proper bored of all these snobs telling me that it didn’t deserve to be mentioned.

Going by their logic, because it was fun, entertaining and brought in an unprecedented amount of people and money to the cinema, it wasn’t worth consideration...

Remind me why we go to the cinema again...?

Silvestri got screwed as well.

Just noticed that Honeyland has been nominated twice. If you wish to see it, it is currently available for rental (and purchase) at Amazon (possible other places as well).


This guy gave it a glowing review:

Hey all!

Love the thread. Seen some interesting takes on potential nominees and actual nominees (I'm kinda here for the idea that Endgame could have been nominated).

I'm the co-host of a podcast - First Take Film Club - where we discuss movies we've only recently seen for the first time. We just released season 2 opener (which you can find here) where we discuss Marriage Story and Jojo Rabbit. We also spend a bit of time discussing the Oscar noms.

If you're into podcasts, we'd love it if you listened. Looking forward to spending more times on the forums. Luke x
