A) They lust after Austism Butler, and want to have sex with him. That's why they voted for him.

B) They don't like the new "Woke" Oscars, and decided to punish Viola for the fact that they hate Meghan Markle.

r49 r52 I had read some critic's list of best movies of year, and saw "To Leslie"... I'd vaguely remember hearing about it. Read the review. Found it on a streaming platform. Small indie movie, low production values ... didn't huge expectations.

Story was a little melodramatic, expected - but Riseborough's performance absolutely stunned me. I'd never heard of her before. Couldn't take my eyes off her. I'd never expect her to get nominated, but it was the best performance by an actress I saw last year.

Blanchett's high dudgeon, kabuki dramaturgy was a force of nature - more than movie star turn, it was zeitgeist ritualistic performance. But Riseborough was an open wound of real life and a real person. What a deserved nomination.

The Andrea Riseborough campaign revealed that you only need 200 1st place votes on the ballot to get an acting nomination. All that campaigning for 200 people!

You can’t begrudge her nomination just because it was a shoestring operation rather than a studio one. She’s terrific in the film, endlessly watchable, but to be fair, it’s Janney’s supporting performance in the final scene that really packs a wallop and brings what is otherwise a pretty meandering film in for the landing.

Maron’s performance is only adequate as he tangles with a dialect throughout; there are probably 100 other actors that could’ve delivered more in that role and given Riseborough more to play off of but they probably weren’t willing to work for peanuts.

The de Armas nomination is kind of a surprise because everybody hates the film so much, though she’s been slowly gathering steam all season. It’s kind of a “we see you” nomination similar to the Vanessa Kirby nom for Pieces of a Woman, a terrific performance by a most promising talent in a film that didn’t really work.

As soon as it was announced Paul Mescal was headlining Gladiator 2, I knew he’d be getting this nomination. As much as fans want to think it’s for Aftersun, it’s far more likely due to block voting from Paramount, putting their votes for Cruise behind Mescal as insurance for the Gladiator 2 opening.

If the Academy really got Aftersun, there’d be a nomination for Charlotte Wells most certainly in Original Screenplay, if not Best Director as she was recognised by BAFTA, BIFA and the National Society of Film Critics, to name a few.

While Mescal is well cast in Aftersun, you don’t come away from it thinking of the acting; the thing that leaves you shattered is the writing, directing and editing. It seems odd to have Mescal be the sole representative of that film; an Original Screenplay nod for Wells would be a more convincing gesture of support for the filmmaking rather than Paramount shoring up their investment in Mescal’s future stardom.

Not that he deserves to win but "Elvis" was a big box office success. His performance was the most seen in the category, and the Academy loves tedious stories about real people who were popular figures (i.e. "Judy", "Piaf", "Lincoln", etc.) I'd think he has a very good shot even without being sodomized.

People really like Bryan Tyree Henry and really want to give him an award. Despite the middle of the road filmmaking that is Causeway, he could walk away with it on the night just because people like him. He actually stands a better chance if people don’t watch the movie.

I cared for my former partner, who is a right leg amputee, for 17 years and, in terms of representation, when I watched Causeway I was disinterested in anything Tyree Henry did in the film and found it at best a missed opportunity that they didn’t cast an actor with a disability in that role and, at worst, kind of insulting. The idea that an amputee would just take their leg off in front of someone and swim around in some random person’s pool was…not very representative of that condition. It’s not like removing a glove and putting it back on, even with a leg sock, is impossible without talcum powder. Not putting it on properly, with a dry stump and powder, would be painful and cause injury that the person would suffer from, cumulatively, for days, even weeks after. He also would never volunteer to carry around heavy things, it would be too painful and the pressure would cause injury to their stump which is very tender.

His character’s disability was just for show in a film that pretended to deal with the reality of trauma. I like Tyree Henry but I wish he would’ve been nominated for something else; now it will be all about “his searing portrayal of an amputee” when it was anything but. A bearish man like Tyree Henry with an amputated leg would be in so much pain without any physical balance, they’d be leaning to the opposite side and their back would be a mess from all the physical compensation…his performance doesn’t demonstrate any of that. Hollywood did this much better decades ago in The Best Years of Our Lives.

I can’t really respect this nomination.

[quote] (Aftersun) Of course the reason it was so well directed was also exactly why it'd never be nominated.

Directors nominate the people in the Best Director category, and they failed to nominate her as one of the five.

However, the Directors Guild of America (which I assume has many crossover members in AMPAS) DID nominate Charlotte Wells for Aftersun in the "Outstanding Directorial Achievement in First-Time Theatrical Feature Film" category, along with 3 other women and one man. According to GoldDerby, she is the favorite to win that award.

Charlotte has never directed a full-length before in either film or television, and has only done a few short films before Aftersun. I guess I see why she wasn't nominated for an Oscar with the veteran directors in that category, but she did direct the film that affected me weeks after I saw it. Her film got to me more than some of the beautifully shot, technically accomplished, more expensive films of the veterans.

We should be rooting for actors like him more, who are building a career based on actual talent and hard work and not because of who mom and/dad is.

But there isn’t a “push”. He gave a beautiful performance. He was snubbed at the Globes with Jeremy Pope taking 5th spot in that category, and Adam Sandler took the 5th spot at the SAGs. He got in at the BAFTA awards, and now the Oscars.

As stated before, the Oscars voting body is very different from the SAG and GG. They’re a lot more on par with the BAFTA people. There is someone on here who claims they all have the same people voting but a simple google search negates that claim. And these nominations are proof of that too.

No one is suggesting anything about “nefarious Hollywood insiders”. Gawd, some of you are so dumb.

The same way Riseborough’s cadre of management were able to get their clients to campaign for and vote for her - a very disparate group, as has been noted - studios also have their employees block vote in support of their product. Paramount needs to make Paul Mescal a star as he is going to lead a film directed by Ridley Scott that likely has an over $100M production budget and the same again in marketing, which they hope won’t be Oliver Stone’s Alexander. So of course they’re backing their star for an Oscar to give him the bonafides to lead their production. That support no doubt pushed him into the category. None of the other branches - Writing, Directing and the Academy as a whole for Best Picture backed the film. I mean, the barely seen Women Talking got a Best Picture nom so if Paul Mescal’s performance in Aftersun was so MEGA-HOT surely other branches would’ve supported the film. The barely seen Living got support from the writing branch so they obvious saw the film.

Screenplay nominations are typically how the Academy acknowledges new filmmakers from Steven Soderbergh to Spike Lee to Barry Jenkins, etc. Ideally, Original Screenplay would’ve been the place to acknowledge Charlotte Wells’ debut - y’know, if Academy members had actually watched it.

There’s a reason why the Gladiator 2 headlines appeared in early January before the deal was even inked - to help his Oscar chances. At least Mescal has the haircut for it. Hollywood is turning him into a star, which is fine. And there’s a reason his thighs will be prominently featured in Gladiator 2.

Some of the reactions from some of the nominees....

Paul Mescal – Actor in a Leading Role for Aftersun

“This is truly a special moment for everyone involved in Aftersun. To be recognised by the Academy is such an insane honour and I’m so utterly grateful. I want to dedicate this nomination to my two friends Charlotte and Frankie who I love dearly! This is bananas, thank you!”

A gift I certainly didn’t see coming, but it’s one that has profoundly changed my life. THANK YOU!”

Brendan Gleeson – Actor in a Supporting Role for The Banshees of Inisherin

“What an amazing wake-up call! I’m so proud and grateful to be part of The Banshees of Inisherin on a personal and professional level.

Thank you, Martin! Thank you all!”

Michelle Yeoh – Actress in a Leading Role for Everything Everywhere All At Once

“I am overwhelmed and overjoyed with happiness! Every single person who worked on this film poured their heart and soul into it, and we are all so grateful to the Academy for recognizing so many from our EEAAO family. Playing Evelyn Wang has been one of the great privileges of my 40 year career. It is truly the role of a lifetime.

Being a part of this film was an unforgettable experience, and I share this nomination with the creative and talented people alongside whom I worked on this project.

De Armas previously told The Times of London that she spent nearly an entire year working on her Monroe accent for “Blonde” before filming started.

I'm not one of those people who thinks an actor should look exactly like the person they're portraying - for example, Anthony Hopkins looks nothing like Richard Nixon yet he totally became Nixon - but de Armas had none of Marilyn's qualities. I also wonder if she's fucked half of Hollywood.

I didn’t HATE Ana as Marilyn, but the movie was so terrible that I’m surprised Oscar voters wanted to give it anything. I haven’t seen Till, but it sounds like Deadwyler is a major snub. I also haven’t seen The Fabelmans but friends who have seen it say Michelle Williams should be in Supporting.

Thrilled for Brian Tyree Henry, but Ke Huy Quan is a lock. The only lock in the acting categories this year, I think.

Butler was always going to be nominated. This was set in stone six months ago when Elvis opened. De Armas was wonderful in certain parts of Blonde, not as great in others.

I was reading the deux moi reddit group reactions to the nominations and my god - the outrage about a vast racist conspiracy to nominate Andrea R. is wild.

Lots of posts about "white violence." They are enraged that Andrea took Deadwyler's spot and think it's this intricate conspiracy from "middle aged white actresses" who are threatened by the talent of black actress. I had to stop reading.

It's interesting the group is so focused on Andrea R. "stealing" the spot from Deadwyler, when Andrea has worked for decades and gave an incredible performance (even the reddit people couldn't deny that her performance was strong), and they aren't at all focused on de Armas.

I didn't see Til, but really loved Deadwyler in Station Eleven. I wish she had gotten a spot instead of de Armas or Michelle Williams. But going after a 40 year old British actress, with no name recognition, no nepotism (wikipedia says her father was a car dealer, mother a secretary) for orchestrating "a conspiracy" seems so misguided. Do actresses have that much power? Isn't the whole system run by male executives?

I would say that a British actress like Riseborough who isn't all that well known probably doesn't have much power in Hollywood. Riseborough in the past years often looks ill and unattractive compared to previous years where she looked a bit cute. She has also done TV projects that weren't successful like Waco. I can't imagine how she of all people would have that much power.

People should be questioning Ana de Armas sand how the fuck she got a role playing Marliyn Monroe with a fucking Cuban accent. I think someone male executive is working hard to make de Armas happen. I see it backfiring eventually when the male execs get bored with her and move onto the next flavor of the moment. de Armas pretty much stole Deadwyler's nomination. I watched Till last Friday and thought it was better than I expected.

That's the real reason this nomination and win is happening."

It's like Denzel with Training Day. Training Day, seriously? He deserved it for Malcolm X or other films, and he's been around, so they gave it to him for Training day.

Likewise, Basset has been around forever and has done great work - What's Love Got to Do With It, Waiting to Exhale, the nobody-saw-it Sunshine State. And the Black Panther role isn't bad by any means but generally not the type of role that would grab an Oscar (will it be eventually?) So, same premise. Though I don't think she'll win.

It's not important that de Armas is bony and has small breasts that aren't particularly lovely... it doesn't matter to her career, talent, personhood, etc. But she is playing the biggest sex symbol of the century, she showed her nude body multiple times.
