Post Re: Oscar Nominations
People need to stop blurring two arguments. The industry needs to have more female director representation at the movies, not just nominate the only viable female option (Greta Gerwig). Because as far as I can tell, she was the only possible nominee.

That said, it should be pointed out how much she is snubbed for the category. This isn't the first time I've heard the female director argument and she's the name people say missed out. She's getting snubbed, while simultaneously, we need more films directed by women.

Lulu Wang should've been in the conversation, imo.

Post Re: Oscar Nominations
The implication that we should nominate Gerwig just cause she’s a woman is stupid... it appears Little Women was between the 7th and 9th strongest Best Picture nominee (OUATIH, Parasite, Irishman, 1917, Joker, Marriage Story are ahead) based on precursors and other nominations so it’s no surprise she didn’t get in. The bigger surprise miss in BD was her boyfriend. N’yongo, Awkwafina and Erivo were going for 1 spot if Zellweger, ScarJo, Theron and Ronan got in. The biggest POC snub is J Lo. Virtue signallers are going to virtue signal

We're talking about deserving nominations, not what was expected. Do you think Scorsese and Phillips directed their films better than Gerwig?

I really liked Little Women but even I don't really think Gerwig deserved it over who got nominated though haven't seen Irishman yet. More women need to get hired as directors. With what, 80%+ of movies directed by men it's not a huge surprise.

Right, it's ridiculous that we're not even close to a 50/50 split on directed films. I know for decades women didn't really direct at all, but I assume for the last 20-30 years there have been hundreds of new female directors. Could one really not have been hired to direct any of the highly nominated films? I know OUATIH/Joker/Irishman were "passion projects" or whatever, but damn man.

Uh why should it be 50/50 split today? That just isn’t possible. Like there’s decades of catch up. Generations of women never attempted to go to film school or get into film until later in life. You’re not going to change the proportions in a few years.

That said, Lulu and Denis should be pissed that Todd Phillips made it over them.

Frozen 2 is trash so the Academy actually did something right.

Editing is a bit of a miss when you consider JoJo and The Irishman both made it but OUATIH did not.

Hoping Ford V Ferrari can at least win one of the "Sound" categories (while 1917 probably gets the other). Super happy it received a BP nod even though Bale was overlooked.

The four acting winners seem set (especially Phoenix, Dern and Pitt) but is Zelwegger a little vulnerable?

Close did seem like a safe beat two years ago and still lost so its possible but the competition against Renee this year just seems weaker. If Renee doesn't win the BAFTA and SAG then I'd change my mind but if she wins both it be a huge shock if she lost. I'm not sure the last time someone won a GG, Critics Choice, BAFTA, and SAG and didn't win the Oscar but I assume it super rare.

I'm thinking ScarJo has a chance to win either of her categories. Not a huge chance and the double noms may be a detriment but idk.

Frozen 2 missing hopefully means they'll try harder with a better story for 3.

Frozen 2 was better than Toy Story 4, at least they actually tried whereas Toy Story 4 was completely safe and in Pixar's usual wheelhouse

shes the only one who could upset Renee IMO. But she'd have to win at BAFTAs or SAG.

Frozen 2 doesn't have a story. It's utterly pointless and empty.

ScarJo has a better chance for Supporting imo. Marriage Story faded while there's a world where JoJo Green Books this and the momentum leads to an actor win especially with ScarJo being soup de jour and a hot actress they'd love to have up there accepting
