I usually like to try to see most of the Best Pictures nominees.



Already seen Dunkirk and Get Out. I don't think Dunkirk deserved a nom nom quite frankly, but it has good cinematography. Get Out is fantastic. I really want to see The Shape of Water and Lady Bird.

You noticing that just looking at the list of nominees seems to be preferable to some people now, as opposed to watching the award shows? Probably because of the farce these things have become.

I do remember a time these award shows weren't cringeworthy.

Surtur
It is odd Tom Hanks got no nom for The Post though.

I read the last nom he got was for Castaway.

Patient_Leech
Yeah, I'll probably skip Call Me By Your Name, as it's another movie about gay guys. It sounds like that's all it's about.

Reminds me of Moonlight that won last year and I thought that movie absolutely sucked.

Shape of Water and Three Bill Boards are the favorites IMO. Lady Bird could also get the win.

Patient_Leech
I haven't seen all of the nominees, but I think Blade Runner 2049 probably deserves Best Cinematography.

Dreampanther
I haven't seen too many of these, as I wait until I can watch them at home, but I hope Sam Rockwell gets his and Baby Driver gets theirs.

Patient_Leech
Three Billboards does sound interesting. Great cast. Sam Rockwell does deserve major credit. He's a great actor.

^ Oh, yeah. I haven't seen it, but I thought The Greatest Showman would get a nomination or two.

Did you see Jackmans face when he lost to James Franco at a recent award show? Golden Globes I think. He apparently threw a fit backstage after.

It almost made me wish I had watched the award show.

Impediment
My bids are for the Shape of Water and Dunkirk.

Robtard
I've seen all except CALL ME BY YOUR NAME and PHANTOM THREAD.

I enjoyed Shape of Water, but I can't see it winning best picture. I'd guess Ladybird, The Post or TBOEM out of the one's I've seen.

Though considering Phantom Thread is Lewis' last film, I wouldn't be surprised if that picks up loads of awards, both Best Actor and Film, cos let's face it, the Oscars are really just a High School popularity contest.

Having said that, I do really need to watch Phantom Thread, as Lewis is a epic-levels actor.

Need to see Shape of Water. Kinda want that to win despite not having seen it because I like Del Torro so much.

Same here.

Dunkirk was okay. kinda boring for a war flick tho.

Impediment
The Shape of Water was f*cking awesome.

Not the best film ever made, but definitely one of Del Toro's best.

2 movies (THE SHAPE OF WATER, 3 BILLBOARDS) i actually like in the OP list.
Thsts pretty good, for me. Oscar movies i usually end up seeming 'meh' to me.

3 Billboards will win best picture.

I wouldnt mind that, or Shape of Water. Liked them both.

So this is a thing for some reason: http://ew.com/movies/2018/01/25/gal-gadot-wonder-woman-oscars/

Though everyone kind of agreed that there was better stuff but I guess not.

Saw Shape of Water last night. Liked it a lot.

Nice, I'll watch it, then.

You should watch it now.

Darkest Hour was fantastic. Dunkirk and The Shape Of Water are the only other two I've seen out of the rest. I do want to watch Lady Bird and Three Billboards. The rest I have no interest.

I hope Allison Janney gets some type of attention for the work she did in 'I,Tonya'. She was awesome in that movie.

Saw The Post last night and was supremely unimpressed. Good cast, good story, good director and a movie that made me wonder why the hell I was wasting my time. I saw one critic describe it a "stodgy" and unimaginative" and I couldn't agree more.

Meryl Streep had one good scene so good for her, I guess, but nearly everyone else (including Tom Hanks) could have been replaced and it would have made no difference. Makes sense that it was only nominated in one category and in my opinion Frances McDormand kicked Meryl's butt. Haven't seen TSOW or any of the other movies in that category yet so I can't speak to them.

tkitna
Just watched 'Lady Bird'. How is this movie being nominated for an Oscar? How many times do we need to watch the same old teen angst BS? Any after school special will give you the same content as Lady Bird.

John Murdoch
Wanting Gary Oldman to win Best Actor, Dunkirk for BP, and Logan to win Adapted Screenplay smile smile smile smile

Didn't see much this year, but wouldn't mind seeing most of the field if I can find the time.

I watched Three Billboards and Darkest Hour this weekend. Enjoyed them both. Three Billboards needed another scene or two at the end. It felt unfinished, but otherwise a great, great film. Darkest Hour was very good, but moreso because of Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill. Awesome performance. I'm hoping he wins for that. It's a very good film, but I don't see it winning Best Picture.

Looking forward to watching Lady Bird and The Shape of Water at some point. Not too interested in Phantom Thread or Call Me By Your Name.

Patient_Leech
Tried to watch The Post. What a ****ing bore. I fell asleep after about 30 min.

I'm all for its execution.

Patient_Leech
Yeah, Lady Bird was very well done. But yeah, the subject matter annoyed me, too.

I thought it was odd that she threw herself out of the car at the beginning like she was suicidal or something. To me that set up the movie for something that it didn't really continue at all.

Patient_Leech
I think Del Toro's deserves Best Director at the very least for The Shape of Water. Beautifully filmed with a gorgeous color palette and engaging direction that never really distracts. Definitely a fun and moving film.

Of the best picture noms, I've only seen Get Out, and I'm pleasantly surprised to see it's a nom at all. Liked it quite a bit.

And can we appreciate what a farce the Best Animated Feature award is, by the way? The phucking Boss Baby gets a nom? laughing out loud

Dreampanther
Haven't seen everything and didn't care for everything I've seen. These are the only nominations I really care about and I only really care about two: Leading Actress and Supporting Actor. These votes are completely subjective and personal.

Nominations I want to see win:

Best Picture - Three Billboards
Leading Actress - Frances McDormand
Supporting Actor - Sam Rockwell
Director - Guillermo del Toro
Sound Mixing - Baby Driver
Adapted Screenplay - Logan
Original Screenplay - Three Billboards

The Only OSCAR really worth having....

The Oscar for Best Picture goes to......

GET OUT!!!

The Best Way to watch the Oscars....and yes it involves booze....

DarthPlaguis12
Glad shape of the water is nominated

Other then that I'm not watching, it always turns into some anti trump bs

Flyattractor
Thats when you turn the bias into a drinking game.

Blindside12
Oscars are bullshit, all the people who complain about Trump needing praise, rely on 20 or more different award ceremonies every year.

Flyattractor
That and the movie that spends the most money on its advertising are the ones that wins.

SO yeah.

Blindside12
Hollywood hypocrites

BruceSkywalker
oscars are going the way i thought they would

Patient_Leech
Yay for Sam Rockwell! smile

Too bad for Willem Dafoe.. sad

Patient_Leech
Yay Del Toro!

Adapted Screenplay - Logan
Original Screenplay - Three Billboards

So, let's see:

Best Picture - Shape of Water. Well, I'm happy for Del Toro. I preferred Three Billboards because I thought the story was more interesting, but by no means do I think SOW is a bad film.
Leading Actress - Frances McDormand. Yes!
Supporting Actor - Sam Rockwell. Yes!
Director - Del Toro. Yes!
Sound Mixing - Dunkirk. Haven't seen it yet but my brother did and he's mentioned it a few times, so good for Dunkirk, I suppose.
Adapted Screenplay - Call Me By Your Name. Bugger (no pun intended). Romantic dramas aren't really my thing, so I can't comment on it because I doubt I'll ever watch it.
Original Screenplay - Get Out. Well, not a bad movie and good for Jordan Peele. Again, I preferred Three Billboards but, like SOW, Get Out was a good alternative.

Baby Driver should've at least gotten an award too but that's the Oscars for ya, They can bs sometimes.

Lowest ratings in history .

Clearly a shit show.

DarthPlaguis12
Glad shape of water win two oscars though as well as Gary Oldman

Blindside12
The idea a scaled fish man is more compatible with a women because he's more "sensitive" sounds pretty progressive to me.

I will watch darkest hour though

Likely cos Jimmy Kimmel is a boring cvnt.

They should've got Anthony Jeselnik or Ricky Gervais to do it. Although the latter might have been awkward what with his sex pest butt buddy Louis CK falling afoul of the #MeToo crowd.

Blindside12
Confirmed, Lowest in History.

Much like how Hollywood wants to assasinate Gary Oldman for what he did?


Not surprising seeing as how Hollywood is full of Fascists like you , huh FeeFeeFly!?

BackFire
Only watched the last hour, happy that Oldman won. Shape of Water was good but I was rooting for Get Out, would have been awesome for a subversive horror film to win best picture. Oh well.
