I hope those bummed out at the lack of recognition for female-directed movies can take some solace knowing that more of those movies are getting made. and that as long as they are making good business, lack of Oscar noms shouldn't be much of a hurdle to getting the next movie out.

but I am one of those guys who doesn't put much weight on awards and that glitzy shit so....

I'm surprised Sandler didn't get nominated. I haven't seen Uncut Gems, but I was sure the Academy would go for it. Comedic actor going dramatic, "washed out" actor turning up a notable performance, I mean, the Academy gobbles up this shit.
I posted a review in one of the threads, I was detailed as possible.

I haven't gotten to see Little Women yet, but I'm going to safely say that Gerwig's snub in the director category is the salt on the wristslit of Todd Phillips' nom. No time for love for Lulu Wang either, I see.

Of all of the undeserved Joker noms, I think the one I'm most amused by is "adapted screenplay". First, it's one of the worst screenplays of the year, but also it isn't actually "adapted" in a technical sense, being credited as an original script from Phillips and Scott Silver, though as an acknowlegement to its thoroughly derivative nature no one could say for sure.

The foreign category seems pretty thin, although I've only seen a couple of these. The titles with most of the buzz of the season - Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Long Day's Journey Into Night, Transit, Atlantics, etc. - are nowhere to be seen.

They scooted Oscar night up a few weeks earlier than normal. Still hostless, so still better than Hathaway/Franco, but blah nonetheless. I will watch so that you don't have to. Thank you. I'm also sick as shit, have a gallon of robatussin, so I hope I'm set for the stretch.

My last minute official ballot:

Best Picture - Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Instead of trying to bet on popular consensus (which would be 1917 it appears), I'm going to go with the personal favorite that I believe has a solid chance to actually win. Hollywood loves itself, after all. Alhough I gave Irishman a slightly higher grade, I'm resigned to the likely fact that it will go home goldless tonight. Let this be the night that a Tarantino film finally wins the big one!



Best Director - Bong Joon-ho

Because we don't want Tarantino to get too carrried away with himself. But mostly because Bong deserves it. I don't know how or why but I kinda hope he kicks Quentin into a car door at some point.



Best Actor - Antonio Banderas

It would be nice if the Joker sulks away with nothing, in the long tradition of past overnominated films, but Antonio also deserves it if the Academy bothered to watch his movie.



Best Actress - Renee Zellweger

Haven't seen it, but I'm not going to step out on a limb here.



Best Supporting Actor - Brad Pitt

I can't exactly put myself in the peril of trying to block the ensuing orgy following Pitt's win. I also can't use the joke about Willem DaFoe swooping down like the Phantom of the Opera to reclaim what is rightfully his, because I already burned that joke a couple of years ago for Florida Project. Let Brad have his night.



Best Supporting Actress - Florence Pugh

Parasitic reptilian bitch roles are overrated. Sorry Laura. Florence runs authentic rings around your ball-busting scene-chewing.



Best Original Screenplay - Parasite

Wouldn't it be funny if Quentin leaves before his film wins best picture?



Best Adapted Screenplay - Little Women

They don't understand you like I do, Greta. This is the least they can do for the directing snub.



Best International Film - Pain & Glory

Seriously, did no one else see this?

I'm not sure about the rest of this stuff. Original Song? *Bill Murray gif*

I hope Irishman gets the visual FX nod, just so I can hear the distant fanboy whine on the horizon.

Well, damn. Sorry Grets.

I seem to have appreciated Jojo more than some people, but I think it's a fine screenplay.

I saw somewhere, maybe Hollywood Reporter, that mocked the film's nomination for costume design, complaining that it was just Nazi uniforms. Did they not stay to see the glory of Sam Rockwell? Probably not.

Had to happen I guess, but I'm still right.

It's always fun to see the mean resentment on the faces of the women sitting behind the nominees though.

Sure is a warm season isn't it? 60s, fahrenheit, in February here. Randy Newman has song for one film and a score for another. Didn't he do a song about toads in a skillet?

Maybe I'm gettting my Gretas mixed up.

It never occured to me to compare the climax of Parasite to the Manson Family, but it's quite chilling to think about as this lovely old-time Hollywood music plays off the winners.

Jojo Rabbit's kinda horrendous Adapted Screenplay win (over Little Women nonetheless, which exemplifies the ideal of what this category is made and should strive for) asides, this is a fine set of winners, with a historic, incredibly well-deserved BP/BD.

I always wonder if those award juries have actually read the original source material when they vote for Best Adapted Screenplay, because otherwise how can they judge it as an adaptation? If the answer is no, why make a distinction between Best Adapted and Best Original at all?

That's not the way I read it.
I've always thought it was the best screenplay as it turns out that is adapted from a source, not how close an adaptation is it of that source.
Otherwise you could just have some low-level print-editor extract the dialogue from the text and use Cliff's notes for your story.
