Wait one cotton picking minute. ... "Us/Lupita Nyong'o" doesn't get nominated for anything, but they nominate "Harriet/Cynthia Erivo"? What type of foolishness is that?
Horror movies rarely fare well in the Oscars. That's one of the things that made the Get Out nomination :nthat:

The academy doesn't watch or even acknowledge horror movies like that unless they're tricked in to it.
Get Out was nominated for 4 oscars. It's not like Us/Jordan Peele isn't on their radar, horror or not.

I do think Lupita got snubbed though.

Jordan Peele tricked them dudes by making Get Out much more than a horror flick.

The academy eats all of that racial issues social commentary stuff up..

Lupita got snubbed but the problem was the movie wasnt as good

Best supporting actor will be the biggest thrill of the night. Pesci has it locked but Pitt in Once Upon a time in Hollywood is outrageously good. So good that Leo is gonna get Best lead actor because of it.

and neither deserves to be in it.

You can say Adam Sandler, but not the movie overall.
they have 10 spots and only used 9, ford vs ferrari is better than us and uncut?

show can't even find a host anymore

it's no longer relevant, only streams and box office dollars are, these shows were more meaningful in the video sales day when people would buy more physical copies of movies that fared well

I liked Uncut Gems a lot. Haven't seen NY on a street level like that in a long time. Having grown up around fiends and gambling, it rang pretty close to home too. I don't know about best picture, but it deserves some type of recognition. A lot of people complain about the invasive or panicky nature...but I thought that was the whole point. I don't think it was intended to be a popcorn have a good time at the movies type of watch. It was supposed to effectively put you directly within Howard's F'd up world. I thought they did a good job in that regard.

I agree some people got snubbed like jlo and Sandler... they really did act well in their roles imo...I just feel like the academy doesn't reward those type of movies....they are selective and pick certain movies to get nominated... kinda messed up but it's expected
