Re: Best Picture & Director 2018

First Reformed for Best Picture. Nothing on the slate moves me.

Cuaron for his technical skills and precision as Director for Roma.

Re: Best Supporting Actress 2018

Wow. Not the most impressive in my opinion. Tavira was good but not noteworthy. Stone was very good at times, but her overall performance never seemed to gel in a way that made sense dramatically or stylistically for me. Weisz was fine, but I wasn't enthused. King, on the other way, while being back...

Re: Best Original Screenplay 2018

Not Roma in which the screenplay served mainly as background, with some scattered points of character drama. The Favourite may have had some interesting developments and some snappy dialogue...it never really comes together as a compelling piece of drama. Though, it's fun. First Reformed is the one ...

Re: Best Supporting Actor 2018

Richard E. Grant. The definition of a featured actor, and a delicious and complex performance at that.

Looks like we lost Mister Tee and BJ...or they're real late joining back in.

Re: Best Actress 2018

Olivia Colman because while I would classify her's as a supporting performance (she was background dressing for the fighting in the foreground), she gave the most memorable and unique insightful performance. Yalitza Aparicio was sensitively natural - but overall more presence than revealing acting. ...

Re: The Last 2018 Oscar Post: SAG/BAFTA

As this is the last discussion thread for the recent Oscars and it appears we have nothing else left to say, is this a good time to restart our game? Perhaps even an expedited run-through of the 2018 categories since we've just vetted them? Honestly, I found this year's competition dull, so personal...

Re: 91st Oscars: Ceremony

The entire effort to "bring in the 'new' and make Oscars more 'relevant'" crashed. Many of the presenters hadn't made that much of a splash onscreen yet and were unknown. Additionally, the musical numbers were mostly forgettable. Best Song, for now, can be reduced to three nominees. So, I ...

Re: 91st Oscars: Ceremony

Is it possible he's just simply overwhelmed by the awards season? And perhaps haven't found the need to comment yet in the midst of the argument in question? He never seemed the kind of guy who was offended by differences of opinion or turned off easily by obstinate personalities. I tried to reach o...

Re: 91st Oscars: In Memoriam

In the limited space of In Memoriam, all Oscar winners should be included, Azvanour is important for the great Shoot the Pianist, but I don't find all former Oscar nominees notable enough to film history to be included. Carol Channing might have been famous for her theater work, but she was an Oscar...

Rule reiterated here: no blow-away sci fi/fantasy retreads even if competition is weak from similar efforts and box office disappointments.

Re: 91st Oscars: Live Action Short Film

A lesson to go for interesting and current relevancy rather than the safe consensus choice in the docs and shorts categories.
