Yalitza Aparicio nominated for Best Actress for doing absolutely nothing in Roma over amazing performances from Emily Blunt, Toni Collette, Nicole Kidman and Rosamund Pike is a disgrace.


Call me a fool, but I wouldn’t be surprised if “Roma” wins Best Picture and loses Foreign Language to “Cold War”.

Mr. Rogers couldn’t rest in peace without getting screwed by this world one last time.

No Colette, No Eighth Grade, and no above the line for A Quiet Place. I’m salty. I’m done. I quit the Oscars. I’m out.

Raise your hand if you have been personally victimized by these nominations.

Glad to see that the Academy Awards have really diversified beyond Populist Cinema and Hollywood! Glad that 3 out of 5 Cinematography nods were for non-English films , glad for Aparicio and Marina De Tavira, glad for Cuaron, Colman, Weisz, Stone, Lanthimos, Pawlikowski, glad Cooper missed Directing and the overrated populist “A Star Is Born” tallies behind “Roma” and “The Favourite”… glad for Indie Films


Does anyone else not really like that Roma being in Foriegn Movie and Best Picture? Especially if it loses Foriegn but wins Picture, that logic will make zero sense. It’s the best overall movie, but not the best foreign movie? I think the producers or whoever should honestly have to make a choice, either you go Foriegn movie OR best picture. Same with animated feature. I just think it’s a lose lose, either it wins two best movie awards and for me at least it’s not as fun when it wins picture, or it loses best Foriegn movie because voters… Read more »

The Won’t You Be My Neighbor? snub is easily one of the most heartbreaking snubs this season :( Reminds me of Lego Movie missing Animated Feature, only this feels worse. Gonna wait for some think-pieces regarding this sad atrocity.

Only 3 movies made “The big 4”, Directing, Acting, Writing and Editing: Vice, The Favourite and BlackKKlansman Roma missed editing, Green Book missed direction. All others missed at least two or even all of them (Panther), so they are all out. Think Favourite and Vice will take a lot in the technical races, so BP is decided between Roma and BlackKKlansman and potentially Green Book. Though my guess now is that Green Book takes Screenplay and Ali, and Roma takes foreign language, direction and potentially cinematography, while Klansman is taking BP if it wins at SAG, otherwise it will only… Read more »

BP race now:
1. Roma (Netflix)
2. BlackKKlansman (Focus Features)
3. Green Book (Universal Pictures)
4. The Favourite (Fox Searchlight Pictures)
5. Vice (Annapurna Pictures)
6. A Star Is Born (Warner Bros.)
7. Bohemian Rhapsody (20th Century Fox)
8. Black Panther (Marvel Studios)


I was a bit bummed about ‘Beale Street’ not making the Best Picture nomination and Barry Jenkins for for Best Director but I am glad they didn’t snub Regina King for Supporting Actress. I really think she will win this. ‘Beale Street’ will win Original Score and maybe Adapted Screenplay (it’s between them and BlackkKlansman) Yalitza Aparicio nominated for Best Actress was kind of expected but Marina De Taveira for Supporting Actress was a SURPRISE. I had a feeling Emily Blunt and John David Washington would get snubbed and a slight feeling for Claire Foy too. I wish Ethan Hawke… Read more »


The acting nods for Roma are a bit much (I’m with a few punters below, it is an extraordinarily overrated film), ecstatic for McCarthy and all the BlacKkKlansman nods, tears for Collette, Hawke, Washington, Heller (that directing category is still essentially a men’s club) and the foolish Eighth Grade snub, expected more tech noms for Buster Scuggs, disappointed Thom Yorke was overlooked for Suspiria, amazed Three Identical Strangers was left behind…
