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.
