How has time treated the following oscar winners from the 2010s. Do we think they’ve gotten better, Held up, or feel like something we just did while overlooking a performance that has aged better?

Jennifer Lawrence
Brie Larson
Lupita Nyong’o
Eddie Redmayne
Mark Rylance
Casey Affleck

Avi Saks

Multiple musicals in Best Picture in the same year has happened

My Fair Lady and Mary Poppins
Funny Girl and Oliver


Cinephile Showdowns (Clayton’s Top 10 from 2019 vs. 2018)

1. 1917 OR If Beale Street Could Talk
2. The Two Popes OR Roma
3. Parasite OR Disobediance
4. Us OR Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
5. Waves OR Capernaum
6. Luce OR Mary, Queen of Scots
7. Toy Story 4 OR The Rider
8. Knives Out OR Boy Erased
9. The Farewell OR Private Life
10. Joker OR A Star Is Born

Also, when Tom Cruise imminently dies of a freak accident, what clip do you think they will use during his part of the Oscar’s In Memoriam?


That I know of, there have been 3 Big Five winners (It Happened One Night, Silence of the Lambs, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest) and 3 films to only win Best Picture (Mutiny on the Bounty, Grand Hotel, and The Broadway Melody). What do you think we’ll get first: another Big Five winner or a film that wins only Best Picture?
