"That's the going theory, that Banshees will CODA its way to a surprise win"

On an elemental emotional level I loved CODA so much more than Banshees. I'm not that on board with the almost certain win for Everything Everywhere All at Once. I think The Fabelmans and Tár were the best of these

All Quiet was as pointless and dreadful as I feared. I think it's gonna beat EEAAO for the best picture Oscar, for sure.

I honestly don't really know. Maybe tomorrow's SAG awards will make me feel better about predicting an EEAAO win, but the people who hate it really hate it and are not a small group of people in general.

Thought One Fine Morning was okay--so determined to be quiet and observant, though, that it could have used...I really don't know; something. I liked Eden from a few years ago better.

Now that Everything Everywhere All At Once has won the DGA, PGA and SAG awards, it will inevitably win the Oscar. I really liked the speeches given by the winners at the SAG awards

It got three of the four acting wins as well as Ensemble. The Jamie Lee Curtis win was a surprise, and she gave a great speech

Agreed that EEAAO has solidified its chances as the Oscar favorite, though there's an argument that All Quiet missed out on guild nominations only because it crested too late and, now that people have seen it, it has the momentum to take Best Picture. I'm skeptical of that, but also not 100% sure about EEAAO.

Can't remember the last time that 3/4 acting nominees felt so up in the air before the Oscars.

Was gonna say just that … for even two to be real toss ups in the final stages is really rare at this point

All Quiet on the Western Front won't win Best Picture.

I think Cate Blanchett gave the best performance of the year, in any category. It was so fierce and memorable

I also really liked Michelle Yeoh and will be happy if either of them wins

my favorites are

Cate Blanchett

Colin Farrell, give him the Oscar already

Brian Tyree Henry, who I think illuminated a believable and lived-in character who revealed who he was without many words but with a mesmerizing performance

Stephanie Hsu or Jamie Lee Curtis or Kerry Condon, can't decide

Meantime, an urgent and key thread

In honour of the fact that there is now one week left until the Oscars, here is Kate Bush as each of the ten Best Picture nominees. 🧵

I maybe obliged to do that, but with Björk, before the week is up

a state of emergency!

The Quiet Girl is very quiet. I liked its quiet better than One Fine Morning's--I should see it again, as my mind tends to wander these days. Some beautiful images and moments.

ooh I've been looking to talk to someone about One Fine Morning. It's rare for me to have a reaction as unabashed as I did last weekend -- I loved it.

the very juice and sperm of kindness. (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Tuesday, 14 March 2023 02:15 (one year ago) link
