Why didn't Ben is Back get a wide release?Why was Julia Roberts ignited completely from giving one of her best performances ever??

January 18,2019 | Unregistered CommenterDAVID

Why do you guys think that no female directors are an actual threat this year for a nomination?Is it because some of the locked movies like The Favourite and The Wife are considered feminists or women centric so the "feminist quota"是否已填充?

我有时不了解支持类别。They seem like categories where you can win even if you're an unknown (Mark Rylance),your film is not well liked (Alicia Vikander) or even your performance is not that respected (Alison Janney).How did Christoph Waltz managed to get a second Oscar so soon (and for a leading performance) and how come that same thing is happening to Mahershala?

换一种说法,don't you think we are currently going through a really good moment with the Academy?I feel like it's partly because of the new members,but gone are the days when most of the nominees were movies nobody cared about,and they have proven to have good taste with their recent winners/nominees (Roma's frontrunner status,月光BP赢了,more foreign language nominees in acting and Directing,etc).我觉得学院正在随着时代的变化而变化。

I have several to choose from:

1) I see a link between the announcement and subsequent intense arguing about the Academy's "Popular Film"award and the stunningly bad Best Picture win for Bohemian Rhapsody at the Globes.Throw in there all this discussion about how Black Panther HAS to be nominated for Best Picture because it was so popular (or else?).像波西米亚狂想曲这样的电影不仅赢得了全球最佳影片,so that's the only explanation I can think of for its win,所有这些都是关于“流行”gave the HFPA an excuse to vote with their hearts and not their heads.思想?
2) So far,we are 3/4 in terms of the actors winning every televised award again,after the awfulness of last year's absurd rubber-stamping all 4.We won't get 4 this year b/c of Supporting Actress,but do you think this is the norm now?我们将再次获得3个甚至可能全部4个奖项,每次都将获得电视奖(bfca,Globe,SAG,BAFTA & Oscar)?I kind of do.
3) Given the changing Academy and the popularity of this movie,I am feeling slightly like predicting that Spider Man-Into the Spiderverse might get into Best Picture.It's unbelievably successful commercially,critically,它是“受欢迎的”。它也创造了大量的前十名名单。
4) What are some back-to-back acting nominations in the same category that you love & hate?例如,Cate Blanchett's back-to-back for Notes on a Scandal and then I'm Not There are incredible.And on the other side,I think Octavia Spencer's back-to-back for Hidden Figures and then The Shape of Water are two of the worst nominations ever.两者都没有范围,but more importantly deprived much better performances of nominations (Greta Gerwig in 20th Century Women & Holly Hunter in The Big Sick).

I think Octavia Spencer's back-to-back for Hidden Figures and then The Shape of Water are two of the worst nominations ever.两者都没有范围

Her uninterrupted coronation for The Help was trash and so engineered when they gave Streep her third.

January 18,2019 | Unregistered Commenter/3rtful

If The Academy put their foot down and category fraud was outlawed,what do you think this year's acting line-ups would look like?Would Emma Stone or Rachel Weisz stand a chance at getting into Lead over Olivia Colman?What ACTUAL supporting performances would have gained traction by this point?

January 18,2019 | Unregistered Commenterben1283

Why do romantic Male Leads not win Oscars or get nominated for them.I'm thinking of Cooper maybe not winning this year.亚博主页

January 18,2019 | Unregistered Commentermarkgordonuk

could you talk a bit about who will *win* the oscar for best actress?听起来有点奇怪,但是我听过很多关于谁会被提名的讨论,赢萨格,etc.,but not exactly who will *win* the oscar.gaga has the song award locked up,will that bar her from winning actress too?或者她会赢,因为科尔曼和克洛斯会分道扬镳?does colman have a real shot of winning?as of now,她总是被关在喜剧里——也许她没有赢得BCFA的女演员,因为她赢得了BCFA的喜剧女演员?we'll know more after sag,but will bafta just confuse?当我们看到Ampas在提名数量方面对最受欢迎/妻子/明星的反应时。迫不及待地想听听你的想法!

January 18,2019 | Unregistered CommenterCharles O

What Oscar clip during the award show in the acting categories was most fitting for the nomination?If not what moment would you replace it with?

前任。莱斯利·曼维尔去年的奥斯卡表演片段或劳里·梅特卡夫的(Altho在电视颁奖节目中过度使用)。Or replacing T Chalemet's with a different clip,etc.

January 18,2019 | Unregistered Commentermikenewq

I always thought that the hosting gig could go to a newcomer or somebody who is not superfamous.Would that really affect the ratings that much?No!Why do we need s mega star to host them?It would be a great opportunity to tout their efforts of inclusion and support of new talent.Don't you think?

Favorite scenes or moments in 2018 films,even if the films didn't work as a whole.

What are the chances of a total curve ball nomination?


January 18,2019 | Unregistered CommenterBen


I know we probably all have our own opinions on this but I'm interested in your take:

If you were an academy voter,what criteria would you use to make your choices?具体来说,在女演员类别方面——你只是选择你个人最喜欢的年度表演吗?or the one you consider the most "skilled"?If not,what other factors do you weigh and what weight do you give "overdue narratives"如果有的话?I'm thinking of,for example,Glenn v Gaga here.Hypothetically,if you love both performance but think Gaga's is the stronger of the two,does that automatically mean she gets your vote or would you consider voting for Glenn since she also gave a great performance and,一天结束的时候,她更应该成为奥斯卡得主?

January 18,2019 | Unregistered CommenterMack B.

Do you think it's possible that as a reaction to the criticism SAG,BAFTA and the BFCA members took for rewarding films with mixed (at best) reviews,Academy members decide this time to purposely reach for more critically-acclaimed work?

January 18,2019 | Unregistered CommenterSawyer


January 18,2019 | Unregistered CommenterSawyer

我可以问你们几天的问题,but I've limited myself to three:

-- This season will mark the 10th year in a row that the Academy has opted to nominate 5 or more films for Best Picture.Do you think the switch to five-10 nominees has worked?How would you fix it,if you could?

--- Out of all the movies you've seen this year,which character's wardrobe would you most want to wear in real life?Don't laugh,但我会杀了瑞恩·戈斯林的黄色高领毛衣。

-- In the last 10 years,is there a film that ranked high on your top 10 list that you no longer love today?

January 18,2019 | Unregistered CommenterAndy

I've got 2 questions about a category I know fairly little about,in case either would spur your interest.

你认为奥斯卡最佳歌曲提名者最难忘的表演是什么?I'm partially asking for selfish reasons - I'd be curious to look up some of those from years past.But I'm also legitimately curious what resonated with you and why.

B) For those of us who don't follow the category closely,what tends to guide what gets nominated?I can usually figure out what'll win from from the 5 nominees.But I've never figured out what seems to drive what gets nominated in the first place.Like for this year,I'd have thought that having the opportunity to put a Best Actress winner on stage to sing a Sia song (and a short one at that,that wouldn't eat up much time in the telecast) would put Wrapped Up in the conversation - but,nope.So,I'm curious what drives this.

January 18,2019 | Unregistered CommenterScottC

How do you solve a problem like category fraud?I might be wrong but I've seen more outrage online this year than with the Vickander/Mara fuckery.

January 18,2019 | Unregistered Commenter佩吉苏

@佩吉·苏首先要定义它。Is it a certain % of screen time denotes lead vs.supporting?或者是更深奥的东西。Then the awards givers have to start implementing the definition,从早期的批评家奖项开始,比如NBR和NYFCC(他们应该列出每一个类别的所有提名者,以明确)。When they start awarding correctly,that will set the tone for the bigger awards givers.

January 18,2019 | Unregistered CommenterBruno

I like to play a game I call: "If you saw this,那为什么?”

It started in 2011,when Christopher Plummer won the Oscar and every other award imaginable for "Beginners",but Ewan McGregor did not get a single nomination anywhere despite being great.I didn't understand how apparently everyone had seen the film,but nobody seemed to like McGregor's performance enough to show him some love.

The game's about films that receive (multiple) acting wins or nominations,但你仍然觉得有一个人在做着出色的工作,被忽视了。

所以我的问题是,谁会是你的“如果你看到这个,那为什么?”contenders this year?

January 18,2019 | Unregistered CommenterChris P.

Completely unlikely fifth slot no guts no glory - who will be our blindside (so to speak) this year?

January 18,2019 | Unregistered Commenter欧洲奶酪

Bruno and Peggy Sue: Re: category fraud,my view is that it should not be defined in terms of a percentage.部分原因是,谁来数数?And also,how would they count?计算屏幕时间是否意味着只计算该人在屏幕上可见的镜头,还是计算该人所在的场景,even including the shots they are not in?(How does the Smackdown count screen time?) But more importantly,the percentage shouldn't be the way of defining it because it shouldn't come down to percentages.It should come down to common sense.

Therefore,I we could tackle category fraud by encouraging voters to bear in mind two things:

1) Be aware of the issue,for starters.我认为很多类别欺诈的发生是因为选民根本没有考虑过。They are unthinkingly following the placements the campaigns have presented to them.Voters need to know that they don't need to follow those placements.

2) The award is Actor/Actress in a Leading Role,not Actor/Actress in THE Leading Role.A film can have more than one leading role of the same gender.If two (or more) people are in leading roles in the same film and you think you might want to vote for them,the leading category is where you should put your votes.If you then have too many leading candidates for your five slots (or,如果你是评论家,three or however many you need to put forward),you need to choose between them - don't let them spill over into the supporting category,真正的支持表演将被排除在他们的合法认可之外!

January 18,2019 | Unregistered CommenterEdward L.

@Edward L.I agree that education is always a good thing.但我真的怀疑,我们今天拥有的更懒惰的投票机构会改变这些习惯。真正结束类别欺诈的唯一方法是对其进行监管。

January 18,2019 | Unregistered CommenterBruno

Has there ever been a category or year where you would have completely replaced all the nominated films/performances with different ones?

January 18,2019 | Unregistered CommenterTom G

Which film (or films) this year best encapsulate(s) the state of society in 2018?In 2017,it felt like Get Out and Ingrid Goes West were really great in that way.I have high hopes that they'll age well,也是。What movies will do that the best for 2018?

I miss Michael Cusumano.Would you ask him if he's planning to come back?

你认为浅的足够强壮吗?even if Lady Gaga had won a couple years ago,今年她还会再赢一次——成为音乐部门的希拉里·斯旺克?

1.你认为谢丽尔·布恩·艾萨克斯今年会改变学院的会员资格/投票吗?How does John Bailey's tenure so far compare (I've heard absolutely nothing about him,and had to look up his name.)

2.Do you have favorite movie trailers?If so,他们是什么?

January 18,2019 | Unregistered CommenterJames from Ames

Non Oscar-related: do you guys still buy DVDs and/or Blu-rays?I feel like I must be the only one and everyone in my life gives me a hard time about it.And if so,what was the last DVD you bought?

January 18,2019 | Unregistered CommenterJonathan

Jonathan: I still do!Ignore those who give you a hard time.But streaming is useful too,对于你想看但不需要保留的标题,or when you aren't bothered about the extras.

Is Roma winning Best Picture AND Best Foreign Film or should we keep and eye on Shoplifters or Capharnaüm?

Are the Academy's voting rules ageist?

January 19,2019 | Unregistered CommenterSteve

Do you think voters should have a minimum number of films they should have seen,how would you set that number,如果一个学院的成员问你,how would you prioritise seeing the films (from an abstract academic way?)

January 19,2019 | Unregistered CommenterBJT

As a member,do you have to vote for ten movies or can you just vote for 5 or 8 or whatever suits you?

What clues will you be looking for when they announce the first round of nominations on Tuesday?Ie -- if Bohemian Rhapsody does well in certain tech categories,does that mean it'll get a Best Picture nomination?等。

Now that we're at top 10 season and revealing personal ballots and quote-unquote snubs,what's a film or aspect of a film you really love but still ended up in the 6th spot?

January 19,2019 | Unregistered CommenterNick T

What would happen if the acting/screenplay/directing awards were voted on using the preferential ballot?At the very least it would put an end to rubber stamping all the winners.

January 19,2019 | Unregistered CommenterMichael R

Who will win SAG for Best Supporting Actress?艾米·亚当斯几乎没有赢过她的袖子,Regina King isn't there,and 3 of the 5 are category frauds.
