Congratulations to all of this year's nominees. The selections this year are a mix of good, and bad. It's not a complete trainwreck, and I'm glad to see both Minding the Gap and The Ballad of Buster Scruggs sneak in. However, there's quite important ones missing: Toni Colette for Hereditary, Justin Hurwitz for the First Man score, anything for You Were Never Really Here, If Beale Street Could Talk for Best Picture. I guess that's just the way it goes. It's also good to see a few - Rami Malek, Melissa McCarthy, and the surprise nomination for the wacky Swedish film Border (which I adore) in the Best Hair & Make-Up category, since this really deserves that nod. Overall I'm not totally satisfied but also not that upset by these nominees, but I'm sure there will be plenty of major discussion/complaints as always. What do you think of all these films?

Black Panther for best picture.. really? I hope Roma wins.

Efterklang on Jan 22, 2019


What did you like about Roma? I tried watching it and I was utterly bored.

THE_RAW_ on Jan 22, 2019


I felt the same although I watched on Netflix which I didn't want to do as it played in theaters in my city. My coworker and his girlfriend saw it in theaters, and absolutely loved it.

Brandon Cole on Jan 22, 2019


I watched it on Netflix too. I'm not confident change of medium would change my opinion though lol....

THE_RAW_ on Jan 22, 2019


That's what I told my coworker lol.

Brandon Cole on Jan 22, 2019


Well, I'm glad it wasn't just me that didn't enjoy it! I keep seeing it listed as a lot of folks top picks for the year and I'm like....I don't get it....WHY?!?

THE_RAW_ on Jan 22, 2019


Pretty much everything. Sure, it takes its time, but I like that. Wasn't bored at all. It's a beautiful film in every way.

Efterklang on Jan 22, 2019


Alright. Well, it was too slow for me and I cared nothing about the characters. The lead actress was solid though. Glad you got something out of it though. Different strokes...

THE_RAW_ on Jan 22, 2019


I have my issues with Roma... but not enough to knock this nomination. Absolutely beautiful film that will net Cuaron another director oscar and a historical one for cinematography..... even more historical if he wins best picture.

Duane on Jan 22, 2019


Throwing Black Panther a bone with a golden globe nom I could understand but this??? No

Jon Odishaw on Jan 22, 2019


That's just the Academy trying to be hip. I say why even try and keep it out.

Oblique on Jan 22, 2019


There's no denying that Black Panther was one of 2018's best movies even if it was at best pretty standard. It deserved it's nomination, now if it wins is a different story. I'd rather have it nominated for Best Picture than for "Best Popular"; which would just negate any movie that is thrown into that category.

Brandon Cole on Jan 22, 2019


Piece of shit movie for 12 year olds, only there coz of black empowerment or some shit.

tancoiu on Jan 22, 2019


Even so, it's there because it was one 2018's best movies. Check the accolades.

Brandon Cole on Jan 22, 2019


you are right it wont win anything but maybe the technical categories which im actually fine with it winning i guess...its a good movie not great for me but def one of the best marvel films... regardless the nominees this year tell me theres def no reason for that proposed popular category.. just not necessary if they nominate films like bohemian rhapsody, a star is born, black panther spiderverse, incredibles 2... plenty of popular fare there already

Derek NOLA on Jan 22, 2019


Sorry, but I absolutely deny that it was one of the year's best. So unbelievably overrated. It was fine, just, fine. But you know, opinions.

grimjob on Jan 22, 2019


I preferred Infinity War personally. However, Michael B. Jordan's villain made BP for me. Felt his take on a sympathetic villain ranks up their along side Dr. Freeze/Doc Ock. Everything else seemed pretty paint-by-numbers formulaic aside from the new characters and setting.

THE_RAW_ on Jan 22, 2019


Infinity War was miles ahead of BP. Jordan's villain was certainly the most interesting part of the movie, and one of the better superhero villains, although I just had to look up the character's name because I couldn't remember. That's how this whole movie is for me: Fine, but forgettable.

grimjob on Jan 22, 2019


Ok Here's the context you may be missing ... BP HAD to be a " feel-good , rollicking fun fest " where the hero wins out and everyone goes home happy ...because they knew the NEXT Movie - A: IW - was not going to be . That being said , the pacing Of that kind of script , plus the fact that every Theatrical release can't be over 2:20 , means the movie felt "rushed " and key details that could have rounded out the narrative are left out ... Like exploring more of Wakanda ;explaining details and terms left vague (like why DID they keep pulling down their lower lips ) more on the other nations , etc ....and also maybe doing something else besides the "hero dies but is revived" schtick , as Underworld :Blood Wars did the same thing 2 months earlier ... and That is why people feel it actually wasn't THAT great of a movie ... This is a cultural-effect award for them , in two aspects - the 99% black cast , and the Best Pic Nomination for a CB movie , which shows how far the genre has come and how much Hollywood MUST capitulate to it .. Actually I would take Captain America : Civil War , as a better film than either BP or A: IW ...but we really can't judge the latter until its ending is released in April ..

Now although it wasn't crafted to the "Oscar" standards and was just fine to you x including I; it topped majority of Best 2018's Movies lists by a landslide x was relevant throughout the whole year. That screams Best Pic! The movie earned its nomination! Out of all the other Best Pic noms, Black Panther has the highest rating!

Brandon Cole on Jan 23, 2019


The reason it got all those accolades was because of the politics involved. Wonder Woman got similar treatment because it was directed by a woman. But there have been great female directors for years. Just like there have been great black directors, asian directors, etc... But because of the recent movements, and the shit they got last year, they were expected to include BP. It's been talked about for months now, and if they hadn't, they'd have caught hell. This movie simply does not warrant a Best Picture nom. You said it yourself, you think it's just fine. Being on a bunch of tabloid lists doesn't mean it's suddenly worthy of high praise, it's obviously resulting from the larger problems regarding inclusivity the industry has been facing. It's a PR move. A smart one, sure, but one that is very transparent. They are taking the necessary steps to make sure everyone has a voice, everyone is represented, but this is so clearly just pandering. Sorry for the rant, I don't ever do this, as I prefer to keep politics out of the discussion. But they are intertwined this time.

grimjob on Jan 23, 2019


You don't get to justify Black Panther being nominated in 7 categories since it was only a good movie at best. Can't believe the politics going into this. I mean it's the Oscars and it's obvious that there is politics, but this is just way too much. The Dark Knight which stands as one of the best movies ever created wasn't even nominated for Best Picture, not to mention other super hero movies which could have been well close to nominated and all of them are better then Black Panther. I wouldn't minded if it was Infinity War since that one is light years ahead of Black Panther. What a shame.

aleks_989 on Jan 22, 2019


I applaud the diversity of the nominees, but I don't agree with all of them. But honestly, how much of this is due to actual appreciation of the films vs. "we need to do this because society demands it"? I've only seen Black Panther and half of Roma, but I've not seen any of the other Best Picture noms (and I'm aiming to). I'm curious how they'll stack up in comparison ... But ultimately awards ceremonies are all subjective and self-congratulatory. I've found that for all the award winners in the past, there's usually one or two I absolutely agree with and the rest I attribute to satisfy the popularity machine. Don't let the Academy dictate what you feel is the best. Make the decision for yourself.

THE_RAW_ on Jan 22, 2019


I want BLACK PANTHER to win just to see the world burn.

DAVIDPD on Jan 22, 2019


Man, if that happens....we seriously got problems lol.

THE_RAW_ on Jan 22, 2019


They should have just announced the winners along with the nominations and saved us a good bit of time. This batch of nominees might be weaker than last year in general. If this was 5-7 years ago, Green Book would win for everything it is nominated for. I will not see Vice (still shaking my head that it is being taken seriously, I thought it was part satire when I first watched the trailer) and haven't seen Roma but I'm pretty sure GB is the best movie of the bunch.

Whichhalfofthewit on Jan 22, 2019


its funny how people have their opinions of Black Panther getting nominated....but i considered Crazy Rich Asians not getting even one nod a total snub. I think BP's best oscar chance is costume and production design. That score is dope though. As much as I loved the film and understand the cultural significance, Infinity War or RP1 really deserves the visual fx oscar....BP's was underwhelming. I'm also really surprised to wasn't nominated for adapted screenplay. It told a hell of a nationalist/tribalist/globalist story.

Duane on Jan 22, 2019


When it's all said x done, Nicholas Britell winning Best Score for Beale St! Literally no words, just listen to the score! So happy Ludwig got in for Best Score on Black Panther as well!

Brandon Cole on Jan 23, 2019


Wow... I mean damn... Was "Black Panther" really THAT good though? I'm for recognizing popular films and all but really?

JohnDoeB on Jan 23, 2019


When we had the furore over the lack of Black Nominations a few years ago, I was worried that in looking to address these problems, the Academy would nominate films to show diversity rather than merit. I thought that Black Panther was a fantastic movie, and I enjoyed it very much, but to have it nominated as a best picture smacks of tokenism. I have not seen BlackkKlansman, so will bot pass judgement until such time as I have.
