Paul Thomas Anderson is the greatest auteur working today. Hopefully he gets his Oscar.

If they had any respect for comedy they’d have nominated Haddish, but I guess there’s not a lot of comedic actors in the academy that votes for their own.

Really don't see the appeal behind The shape of water. I'll watch it when it comes on sky or netflix but it really doesn't sound anything special.


Best actor nominations look so weak

Damn have not seen any of the Best Picture nominees except for Dunkirk.

Happy to see Logan, Big Sick and Get Out get significant noms.

Yeah. Just hoping Oldman doesn’t win. Seems like there’s no question.

Not a lot of great male lead roles this year from what I’ve seen.

Farrell in The Beguiled is probably my favourite so far. Only seen Dunkirk, Get Out and Three Billboards of the nominates films. Get Out is by far the best of those in every single way.

Tatiana Maslany was incredible in Stronger also.

Absolutely ridiculous actress. So good.

He’s turning into Black Meryl Streep. Getting all these noms for undeserved work.

Really glad Mudbound is getting recognition. I really liked it a lot. Top 5 film of the year for me thus far.

Will go see The Shape of Water when I get back to Joburg this weekend. Hopefully I can catch Molly's Game as well. And then Three Billboards, Lady Bird and Call Me By Your Name right before the Oscars. Btw this whole time ive been thinking Call Me By Your Name is a foreign film?

Anyway. I think Florida Project's DVD is also coming out mid-Feb. I have a feeling out of all of these it will be my favourite. Really liked Sean Baker's Tangerine.

One of the WOAT Oscar lineups IMO, at least since I've been keeping track. Terrible year for prestige movies. Should have just nominated Vin Diesel for FF instead or something.

Bladerunner 2049 not getting a best picture nomination is a joke.

Also probably my worst year for seeing best picture noms. Have seen just Dunkirk. Btw, Dunkirk over Bladerunner? Absolutely no reason for that. Think the narrative of BR's weak office performance has hurt it here. It's a sci fi movie too which doesn't help, but Arrival managed to get over that hump with successful box office performance.

Blade Runner 2049 | let's see
A thought provoking sci-fi film
Techno/retro sci-fi visuals
A franchise reboot/sequel
A dense/layered storyline

Nothing else but the academy members being old-fashioned drama lovers as usual. We all know 2049 is the second best film of the decade thus far. It's getting multiple reviews and analysis from YouTube film students/critics/lovers. Sometimes I feel these kids know better than that old scrapmetal junkyard geriatrics at the Academy.

Oh and pls don't get me started on their love for big names.

Basically every year Meryl Streep and Denzel Washington will get a nomination even if there are others who clearly deserves it more. I think Nolan and PTA as directors will move into that clan soon as well.

“We all know it’s the second best film of the decade”

Pretty sure we don’t all know that. Like at all.

Agree on the Meryl Streep and Denzel thing. It’s getting ridiculous at this point. New blood please.

I’m hoping DDL takes it again at this point.

Nolan's worst film IMO and he is getting nominated just because it's a war film lmao.

It was far better than Interstellar. His best movie since Inception.

The Academy hates LEGO...

Lego Batman is an incredible movie. So ridiculous it isn't nominated.

It hasn’t been nominated for a single best picture award though.

And critics aren’t as overjoyed with it as you make it out to be. Seems like a very specific demographic absolutely adore it. Our demo especially. Even then I doubt it’ll as high on my list when I’ve watched more Oscar movies.

Considering I, Tonya tonight.

Call me By Your Name next week.

Of course. I gave you some potential reasons of why it wasn't nominated.

2049 was such a carefully constructed beautiful sci-fi film. Add to how it incorporated the legacy and unanswered questions of the original film, so much could have gone wrong, however it smashed it with total flying colours. My only gripe was the reintroduction of Deckard scene. But that was minute. It blew me away minute by minute, scene by scene with the amount of strong filmmaking execution exhibited.

The only valid argument is the sequel line.
I think it has a lot to do with Get Out especially stealing votes from the younger voters.
Also the fact that 2049 was an absolute bomb.

Arrival was nominated last year so I don’t think it was because it was a thought provoking sci-if film.

There’s just not a lot of spots for the film to be nominated.

Darkest Hour and The Post were the old voters’ choice most likely.

Get Out, Last Bird and CMBYN the younger

Shape of Water, Phantom Thread and Three Billboards seems to be in the middle age demo
