    Nah Pitt deserved to win over Pacino. It was close, though.

    Yey for Deakins winning.
    I said Pesci. I'd agree over Pacino certainly, but not Pesci.

    Pesci wasn't better than either of them, though imo.

    Parasite winning both BP and Director was a good surprise. Knowing the Oscars they will probably do something dumb next year.

    Hahah cue automatic backlash against Parasite. It was apparently the movie everyone loved, now it's sure to become the most hated.

    I glimpsed a few of the replies to Parasite article tweets, and more than a few of them went "wow the Academy went woke" which lmao.

    To those I can only say:

    Midnight Run (1988) - 9
    The Smiling Lieutenant (1931) - 8.5
    The Adventures of Robinhood (1938) - 8
    Sisters (1973) - 6.5
    Shin Godzilla (2016) - 7.5

    I do wonder if a male-only movie (minus one scene) could win it at the Oscars. PGA and DGA is a little different. 1917 didn't even get an ensemble nomination is the thing holding it back for me.
    I feel like this means something

    The Hunt - **
    Invisible Man - *** 1/2
    Little Women - *** 1/2

    Big Short is mostly an all-men movie too.

    The way the Oscars vote isn't necessarily a "pick your favorite" either. There's a preferential ballot, which you do need to take into account, in that what's likely to be more of a #2, #3, #4 on people's lists, and what will others put at the bottom? This is a big piece of why La La Land lost, because if it wasn't your #1 of the year, people tended to hate it.

    This is why I'm starting to also think Parasite could win, because I don't know one person who hasn't liked it.
    Consider the preferential ballot people!

    The order of awards has International Feature Film quite late on, 7th from the end - I think that means 1917 has Best Film and Sam Mendes has Directing in the bag, the logic being that they want Parasite to get some of the spotlight but it's not going to get it for the overall prize or director.

    "Parasite" is a lock for International but I think people overestimate it's chances otherwise.
    NAILED IT

    Once again, to the surprise of no one, I proudly continued my multi-decade streak of being totally wrong about the Oscars!

    Hey thanks for quoting yourself so I could see the error in "its" this time. <3
