I haven’t seen the full list yet, but the headlines that I’ve seen have a lot of information in them that surprised me.

It would be nice if I could read an article about the noms that focuses on the cinematic merits of the films and not the race/gender of the people who were and weren't nominated.

Uncut Gems is Oscar-bait trash, and Sandlerís performance is being WAY overrated. He played the same character he always plays - loud, obnoxious, one-dimensional - only itís in an indie drama instead of a B-comedy so everyone wants to overrate it.

When you compare the range, nuance, and sheer difficulty of Phoenixís performance to Sandlerís you canít help but laugh that anyone would even put them in the same sentence. Pop culture nerds were just trying to get ahead of the curve on Sandler, and they all learned a lesson in authenticity when the Academy (properly) left him out.

Enough with the Sandler in UG stuff. The movie was unwatchable and Sandler barely brought more to the table than he does in any other performance.

It was trash. Most overrated movie in a LONG time by people trying to sound smarter than the movie actually is.

I saw over 100 movies in 2019.

I just want to assure everyone in this thread that Uncut Gems is absolutely not trash.

Also the premise of Uncut Gems is the furthest thing possible away from being "Oscar bait".

I'm surprised that 1917 wasn't nominated for best editing.

Audience score on RT is like 50%, so half of everyone who saw it thought it was trash.

And how does seeing 100 movies in a year translate to credibility? Do you think of yourself as a high-value film critic or something?

It means I saw a lot of what 2019 had to offer. So when I'm ranking movies, it's more than just Uncut Gems and Black Christmas.

You not liking a movie doesn't make it trash.

But I do agree, enough is enough with these run of the mill jewish jeweler in the diamond district with a gambling addiction stories revolving around the smuggling of uncut Ethiopian black opal he's trying to flip for profit (ft The Weekend) Oscar bait flicks!!

It's hard to remember someone with so little self awareness as yourself.

Whoever said Dafoe getting snubbed for Lighthouse was spot on.

Yeah, Dafoe was incredible in The Lighthouse.

The acting categories were just too stacked.
