    Roma is in both Best Picture + Best Foreign film. I didn't even know that was possible, but I guess there's usually not a situation where that occurs, is there?

    Kind of bummed "Leave No Trace" did not make anything. Apparently it left no trace either. Great small movie -- quiet, personal story, beautifully and often visually told. Thought maybe the director would get something. I wonder how many voters saw it.

    Thinking "A Star is Born" might do better here, despite its issues. It's a popular movie with good production quality, decent acting, and emotional impact.

    He's done some beautiful stuff, although I thought The Shape of Water was a little derivative of other things he's done... I'm still wishing that had gone to Phantom Thread last year. I think it's the only big "miss" I had on my ballot.

    he's got such a great name, for American audiences, since we just see "Da SPLAT". splat.

    First Reformed is probably the film that stayed with me the most but I'm just not sure enough people saw it for Ethan Hawk to win (but he should). I'm also overjoyed about Melissa McCarthy, even though she won't win either.

    I cannot understand why so many people think Black Panther is so great. I mean, I really liked it but it wasn't that good. It's not as good as Wonder Woman for example or some of the Star Trek movies that weren't up for an Academy Award. Why would this be up for best picture?

    I think people will throw the race card but this is the first superhero movie to get much of anything in the way of awards. Incidentally, Michael B. Jordan got no love and I think he was the best character in the movie.

    John David Washington ("BlacKkKlansman") - nothing
    Ryan Gosling ("First Man") - nothing
    Margot Robbie ("Mary Queen of Scots") - nothing
    Jonathan Pryce ("The Wife") - nothing

    None of it makes sense.

    I think Black Panther has just had the press, and sigh yes there is the race thing (it's like the first non-white-centric superhero movie, it FEELS different), and it's decent -- I would put it in the top few MCU movies, and ceecee is right in that Jordan was good (damn, he's usually good in anything he's in)... but I agree in that, still, looking at all the other films out there this year, I don't really understand why it's on the short list despite it being one of the best Marvel pics out there. It makes sense it is in the list, I think, but at the same time I'm not hoping for it to win.

    Then again, Cameron's "Titanic" and Jackson's "The Return of the King" both won best picture honors, when I would say that they only really won on technical merit... it was simply an impressive display of craftsmanship more than being the "best movie" out that year... that, and coupled with the cross-demographic popularity of the films.

    I have mixed feelings in general about Best Picture, as sometimes you get something that few regular viewers can appreciate ("The Artist") and that no one is gonna watch, and other times you get stuff that feels more like a popularity contest -- decent stuff but maybe not the best that year. Remember when "Forrest Gump" was selected over "Pulp Fiction" or even "The Shawshank Redemption"? (I think the latter might still be on the top of the IMDB scoreboard.)

    I dunno. I'm not sure how I feel about Best Picture this year.


    I mean, it's kind of unbelievable how Spike Lee has been glossed over for years in general. BlackKKlansman is a decent film, with a few moving moments, but is it his best work? It's kind of like Al Pacino finally winning for "Scent of a Woman."

    I think Gosling has become such a widely known name that he gets underrated. He's a really solid actor but he's been in a lot of films, and his film presence tends to be understated; and now he tends to get overlooked.

    That's my perception as well.

    These are two of the best movies I have ever seen. Titanic was amazing. The thing that always confused me though is why the last movie in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy got so many accolades vs the other ones. I mean I thought they were all kind of the same as it relates to caliber/quality. Return of the king won 11 academy awards. Fellowship of the Ring won 4 and the Two Towers only won two. What's the difference between them really? Were they awarding the culmination of all three or something? What would have happened if here was only one?

    I liked Forrest Gump most out of those three but that's just a personal opinion.

    I watched BlackKKlansman last weekend. It was pretty good. Best picture nomination? I don't see it but then I don't generally like Spike Lee. Personally, for the ones I saw, I would go for a Star is Born as #1 and Green Book as #2. I did not see the Favorite or Vice.
