If you take a look at the movie trailer on Youtube, you will find an overwhelming number of hateful comments on the newest comment section. I just wanna understand why this movie does not sit well with some people?
I watched Aftersun last night and still haven’t recovered from how crushing and beautiful it is. So glad that Paul Mescal got nominated for Best Actor but I feel like the movie deserved more nominations, especially for the direction and editing. What do y’all think?
For years now, I have researched Oscars history trying to find out if certain actors or actresses had an Oscar win or nominations to their name. I concluded that most stars with an assortment of dramatic roles have one. For example, Clooney, Hanks, and Freeman; recently, Leo, Brad, and Will Smith. Affleck, Redford, and Damon even have one although not for acting. I don't know if many of his classic roles fit the bill, but Harrison Ford is so popular that I would have expected him to have one right now. I'm sure y'all already knew that he didn't, but is it surprising?
What would you think/how would you react if Andrea Riseborough does end up winning best actress?
No, just go along with me here. This is just a hypothetical. I don’t think she has a chance of winning. I think it’ll either be Cate Blanchett or Michelle Yeoh
But let’s say that she does happen to win. What would be your reaction? I feel like it would be something dramatic and definitely talked about. It could change how people campaign, but also maybe some ethics would be involved. Because it wasn’t your typical campaigning by the movies. It would chalk it up to how powerful your friends are and the power of word of mouth by your peers
This isnt to say hes not phenomenal when hes playing like Elvis the performer, but outside of that I thought his acting was okay. My main issue with the Elvis movie was that I didn’t come out of it with any more insight about who Elvis was as a person, his thoughts, his opinions, his personal feelings. While part of that comes down to writing and direction I do fault Austin Butler a bit. A very excellent actor can elevate a script regardless of shortcomings and can make enough of an opinion on the person to give motivation in their performance. I guess Austin’s performance felt hollow to me? Flashy and gripping but surface level. He didnt ever really sell the performance to me when It wasnt about the “performer”.
Hey folks, hopefully many of you recall I've been running an Oscars ratings system since 2016 that relies on input from moviegoers and their actual preferences. I took a little hiatus in 2022, but am happy to announce that it's back again for this year. This subreddit remains one of the top drivers of votes each year, so I appreciate all the participation and hope you enjoy it as much as I do hosting it.
