I only saw the opening, uh, whatever that was, from Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh...seriously, who the hell thinks it’s a good idea to have two strangers with no chemistry host a show together? Franco and Hathaway at the Oscars several years ago wasn’t enough of a cautionary tale?

Oh, and I did flip back in time to see The Dude do his thing, that was alright.

Movies
3 Green Book
2 Roma
1 Bohemian Rhapsody
1 The Favorite
1 First Man
1 If Beale Street Could Talk
1 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
1 A Star Is Born
1 Vice
1 The Wife

TV
2 American Crime Story
2 The Kominsky Method
1 The Americans
1 Bodyguard
1 Escape at Dannemora
1 Killing Eve
1 The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
1 Sharp Objects
1 A Very English Scandal

At the end A Star Is Born, If Beale Street Could Talk and Bohemian Rhapsody can stand with 2.
BlacKkKlansman and Black Panther can get their first one.
But overall, no big winners so none the wiser towards the other award shows.

Absolutely surreal finish to the show with surprise wins for Best Actress and Best Picture Drama. This is why I love the Globes so much; always far less predictable than the end-of-awards-season Oscars.

Second official list for Green Book. Bohemian Rhapsody already have gained 6.

(But 4 of Bohemian lists are temporary always-changing lists, so the score is 2-2 in the "everlasting" ones)

This is true, though to be fair the GGs have an impact in sorting out the Oscar nominees. Maybe. Hard for me to imagine Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody being the big winners from the Academy but stranger things have happened. I've also seen less than usual of the GG noms/winners, and likely Oscar noms so my own predictive powers are probably even weaker than usual.

so, what's the over/under on amount paid by Fox in hush money to get Bohemian Rhapsody released sans scandal? b-b-b-but they fired Bryan Singer towards the end of production! mea maxima culpa


besides that, I didn't think I could love Olivia Coleman any more than I already did but she proved me wrong.

I don't think I would call Glenn Close's win a surprise, tbh. She's been the frontrunner for almost the entire season. It's slightly surprising they didn't go gaga for Gaga, but they do like to be predictors of the Oscars if they can, and the "she's due" narrative for Close is building a lot of steam right now. Plus I hear the performance itself is pretty great. And they gave Gaga a Globe for the song.

I didn't know Close's film existed until like a week ago when I saw someone online poking fun at how awful the poster/dvd box art was.

Bradley Cooper is a really good actor tho. Not a work spoken, just sitting there, clapping, and I could read so clearly in his expression "THEY'VE BEEN SAYING FOR THE LAST FIVE MONTHS, A STAR IS BORN WILL WIN EVERY AWARD EVER WHY GOD WHY".

I'm not that surprised Green Book won Best Comedy/Musical, but winning best screenplay is just an insult to all the other writers nominated for that category...this is the kind of script we want to celebrate in 2018???

Fuck, even Peter Farrelly's speeches had a 90s feel to them. The only thing that made me cringe harder than the opening dialogues was listening to him talk about how progressive and enlightening his film is in his second speech. I imagine it's probably the exact same speech Spike Lee would have given had he won anything for BlackKklansman, but hey, at least when Spike couldn't figure out how to write the message he wants to send into the narrative, he had the sense to shameless exploit a recent tragedy to manipulate gullible viewers into thinking the film actually had something to say.

45 minutes until the nominations start.

But why at 5/8 am? At least here it's 2pm, so I'm not complaining, but this is very much an US award.

It's live on https://oscars.org/ if you wondered.

both of those director has of course won Oscars earlier (Gravity and Ida). It would be much harder for a foreign newcomer with a foreign film to join that list.

The question is now if people will vote strategical and split the votes for Roma for best film vs Foreign Film. It suddenly might not win either.

Biggest disappointment/surprise to me - Justin Hurwitz not getting nominated for his score for First Man.

Also First Man and Roma losing out in editing - and friggin' Green Book getting nominated there.

No Best Pic nom for If Beale Street Could Talk.

Disappointed that Ethan Hawke didn't get a nom - but not really surprised; at least Schrader got a nom for his screenplay.

Seen all of BP noms except the Queen bio which is no longer playing near me but will probably return now. And I've seen 2 of the Foreign Film noms, which is pleasing (and very rare - usually I've seen 0 or 1 at this point)

I've also seen 2. Number 3 and 4 are in cinemas right now, so I'll watching them this weekend.

Werk ohne Autor would not run long when it comes. A 3 hour long german movie doesn't exactly scream box office success (outside of Germany).

The hell if I know what will happen with the Best Picture race now. :shrug:

Only one film has won BP without an Editing nod since Ordinary People -- which would throw Roma and A Star is Born out of the race.

Only two films have won BP since Grand Hotel without a Best Director nomination -- which would throw Green Book out.

Only one film has won BP since Braveheart without a SAG ensemble nomination -- which would throw Vice and The Favourite out.

Is Blackkklansman really ahead of the pack now as the only film with all of these historically important precursors? Not disappointed if that's the case, but I'm surprised for sure.

Cold War I should be able to see before the awards - I thought it was actually available on Prime, I had it bookmarked and everything, but either it was only up for a few days or I'm misremembering or insane. Capernaum might show somewhere I can get to but I won't count on it. Yeah the German film seems like the one that isn't likely to show up.

Also bummed that Ethan Hawke didn't get a nod for First Reformed, but I didn't really expect the Academy to recognize that performance anyway, unfortunately. Interesting Best Director lineup with Pawlikowski getting in there, at least they got in another foreign film there aside from Roma, as I figured they would go for Bradley Cooper in that fifth Director spot. Adam McKay doesn't belong though.

Seen 7 of the 8 Best Pic noms; usually at this point of the year I'd have to play quite a bit of catch-up to see several of them before the ceremony, and I only have Bohemian Rhapsody remaining (not eager to see that at all though). I guess If Beale Street Could Talk has top claim as biggest BP "snub" that would have been most likely in the remaining field. I DO want to see that one, though.

I would have taken out BlacKkKlansman's score nomination and given that spot to First Man, for sure.
