@McGentrix,
Hollywood loves movies about Hollywood. I think Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will take best picture.

This person really doesn't care for Joker.

Quote:
Today—as Joker receives 11 Oscar nominations, the most of any movie, including Best Picture and Best Director—is the day that someone must stand astride the tracks and say: Enough. Stop the madness. Joker is not the best picture of the year. Joker is dumb as hell.

Judging by their track record concerning Tarantino's movies, Once Upon A Time...In Hollywood won't win Best Picture.

For Tarantino, the movie was up there with Pulp Fiction. For Leo it was up there with The Wolf of Wall Street, for which I think he should have won Best Actor.

@engineer,
Joker has something for everyone, Jeremy Corbyn was impressed with the social isolation causing people to rise up against an unfair system. Boris Johnson liked the bit where he hid in a fridge.

@izzythepush,
I liked the film, but I do understand other people's criticism of the film, saying that Phoenix's performance was the only redeeming aspect of the film or that the film leans too heavily on its Scorsese influence, particularly the film The King of Comedy (about a delusional comedian who is obsessed with a talk show host).

Seen vs unseen. There are no undeserving movies getting a Best Picture nominations but there are many snubs. Ford v Ferrari being a relative weak one in comparison to the rest (the weakest of the lot). Knive's Out would have made more sense.

@tsarstepan,
Speaking of music, I do wish "Show Yourself" from Frozen II was nominated instead of "Into The Unknown", since I feel that is the best song of the film, even though it spoils the third act.

@Rebelofnj,
Disney was trying a bit too hard to get Into the Unknown into the Let it Go stratosphere of cultural phenomenoms. It wasn't going to happen.

I'm just glad Taylor Swift didn't get a nomination for Cats. Or Beyoncé for Lion King.

I hear the pop version is a massive hit among male vocalists.

@Rebelofnj,
I go to the cinema with my son who is autistic so I see films he's into. The only film I've seen on the list is Joker.

I really liked it, I was looking forward to it because I like superhero films, but I was completely blown away by it.

Then again as a Socialist I like anything where the proletariat gets hold of the means of production.

My only complaint was that Alita: Battle Angel did not get a Visual Effects nod.

@Rebelofnj,
I just saw Ford vs Ferrari last night. I thought it was fantastic. Award-worthy, Damon was better than I expected. Christian Bale was superb. too.

Loved Knives Out. It had me guessing all the way through it and that’s not an easy thing to do. Everybody in the cast was fantastic and contributed a lot.

The two Popes was superb, I thought. Because Anthony Hopkins was in in it, I wanted to see it. I was blown away by Jonathan Pryce as well as Hopkins. It’s not the type of movie that I would typically go to see. Even though it was mostly dialogue, I didn’t drag at all for me and my guests.

I’ll soon go see 1917. I’m psyched.

I saw Parasite and disliked it. Dark and pretty manic. Not sure what the fuss is about!

@McGentrix,
The CGI and visual effects for the film are pretty good, but the other Visual Effects nominees are worthy for the award, too. I don't know if I can replace one film with Alita: Battle Angel.

I have yet to see The Irishman, but I have read that the de-aging CG for the actors works.

1917 would be an easy replacement. There is no comparison in visual effects of the 2. Not sure why that is listed in that category to begin with.

I watched "Marriage Story" last night and thought it was a mediocre movie at best. About halfway through I skipped to the end to see the end results. I really do not see the appeal.
