The Annual Academy Awards Topic

Recommended Posts



I liked Florence Pugh but I thought "this movie is about AMY" is the weakest part of Gerwig's Little Women. I thought the Jo/Teddy story was really underdeveloped because so much was spent on Amy. 

Laura Dern is really beautiful and lovely and all but it's really jarring to see all her hair extensions. She has such a lovely natural style IRL.

Oh god really? I love Laura Dern but she spent that whole movie playing a one dimensional version of her character from Big Little Lies. 

Thank you! I just don’t get it! She’s so talented and I like her a lot but for this role I just don’t think it’s Oscar award worthy 🤷🏻‍♀️

Laura Dern was a given, but I really loved Florence Pugh as Amy in Little Women. I have the unpopular opinion that Amy was always my favorite in the book.

Amy's the only one who doesn't compromise in what she wants unlike the downtrodden Meg and Jo. My UO: This is not an uplifting book. 

I liked Laura Dern's speech.

I wanted ScarJo to win but I'm happy for Laura Dern.

I'm impressed that Colin Jost made it out there after working so late last night...

I've always liked Amy as well. This version was the best for her. I'm glad Greta gave time to Laurie and Amy. Still Florence playing 13 yr old Amy was always silly lol.

It's so nice to see a someone who grew up in Hollywood with movie star parents who isn't a wreck.  Laura Dern really seems like a fully functional person.

Even though I admittedly haven't seen Marriage Story yet, I'm still happy for Laura since a) as someone who will always love the first Jurassic Park, I just love that Ellie is now an Oscar winner and b) to counter all the shit she got for daring to play Holdo in The Last Jedi.

Laura Dern is a second generation Oscar winner...  trying to think of other ones - Jane Fonda...?

Does Sofia Coppola count? Actually her grandfather is also an Oscar winner. The Huston's have three generations as well.

That was worth it just to see Dianne Ladd's reactions. So moving.

Eh nothing will ever beat Kate crying her way through Leo's Oscar acceptance speech.

I've been peeking at him whenever the camera pans to her!  Yes, that was a long night and long flight, but lots of adrenaline around him now!

That was the one category where I was hoping for an upset, but whatever.  Nice to see Mahershala Ali, though.  He needs to get a nice lead role so he can go on to win that third Oscar for Best Actor.

I suspect he was on his way to the airport as soon as "Weekend Update" wrapped.

Flying the first flight out of New York this morning would still have given him a lot of time. And for a man, there's not much preparation to do.

A Marriage Story was about 1/4 as good as the internet made me think it was going to be, but I did like Laura in it. 

It would have been fun if Lin had performed all of the nominated songs.

Okay, that ad for The Bachelor made me laugh.

Especially since Whoopi HATES when people tell her that was their favorite line! Wonder if she was told she HAD to do it. She doesn’t watch the show and hates it!😆😆😆

Plus he has no show this week, so he has plenty of time to catch up on sleep.

Well, first thing Sunday morning.  Unless he had a charter flight.  East to West means starting as early as possible, and getting there late West Coast time.  Done it too many times.

Laura has been a foregone winner since the start of the awards season, but I'm still sad about this category as IMO, this was the one that had a lot of potential for diversity and creative choices - JLo, any of the Parasite women, the grandmother from The Farewell, etc.

Lin-Manuel Miranda!  Someone needs to hurry up and give him another shot at that EGOT, dammit!

In the Heights and the Little Mermaid reboot...it will happen sooner than later.

Lin-Manuel up there commanding the stage really shows how relatively amateurish some of our most recognizable actors are when they get in front of people.

Francis Ford Coppola and Sofia Coppola.

Not sure if this one counts, since they're related by marriage rather than blood, but George Clooney and Jose Ferrer.
