Oh what. Has Taika even been nominated for Director anywhere else?

I bet Gerwig will get the last slot. But then again maybe Oscar voters really dgaf or Joker gets strong support like BAFTAs.

It kinda warms my heart that two of Shia's films got nominated.

Congrats to Greta for getting a second Oscar nod cause this and BAFTA basically locked her up for one.

Also, I’ll never understand wtf people saw in JoJo. It’s worse than Green Book.


Oscar voting ended today, genius.

JoJo winning Best Picture would be a complete joke but also in line with a decade of mostly lesser films winning BP.

I've been saying Jojo Rabbit is getting in. The Academy can't help themselves with a good Holocaust movie.

Yeah. The Top Five looking like Hollywood, 1917, Irishman, JoJo and Parasite with Joker and Marriage Story on the outside looking in

Mendes wins. Huh. Was expecting Bong to win. 1917 is probably gonna win it all.

It’s over. It’s not like the BAFTAs will go against a British WWI frontrunner.

A decade of Best Picture winners

2010: The King’s Speech
2011: The Artist
2012: Argo
2013: 12 Years A Slave
2014: Birdman
2015: Spotlight
2016: Moonlight
2017: The Shape of Water
2018: Green Book
2019: 1917

Some takeaways

- Not a lot of really big hits/super audience friendly like Gladiator, LOTR and The Departed last decade. 1917 will probably be the highest grossing. Also relatively light on superstar actors, there’s no DiCaprio, Damon, Pitt, Hanks, etc. type vehicle in here, the closest I guess is Affleck.

- Relatively weak list of directors compared to some highlights like Scorsese and Coens wins last decade. Fincher, PTA, Nolan, Tarantino all passed up

- 8/10 are period pieces (Birdman and Moonlight aren’t)

One reminder is the DGA does not use ranked choice voting. A 1917 win does not mean it will be the favorite in Oscars' Best Picture by the members of the DGA.

Well that's a wrap folks. As usual, the last movie people watch ends up being the one that sticks with them. Dunkirk definitely would have won if it was released in December.

I'm pretty sure La La Land won PGA and DGA and Best Picture before they took it away to be less racist. Can't think of another one. Not sure how that would work with 1917 though. The #OscarsHateAsians movement never really took off.

Let's start a #OscarsKissestheBrits movement. ;)

I want to see non spectacle-driven Parasite or Marriage Story pull an upset.

Yeah, mostly garbage aside from Moonlight (haven't seen Spotlight yet).
