    If I remember correctly, Golden Globes winners were strong candidates for Oscar nominations but not necessarily Oscar wins.

    I thought I read somewhere that Nightmare Alley was tipped for some. Strange not seeing it listed at all in the Globes winners. Maybe it wasn't eligible to apply

    looking at the films its a pretty piss poor selection for Best picture this year. A lot of decent films, but nothing great. Belfast was hardly groundbreaking stuff. Good to see Succession pulling the TV awards though, light years ahead of anything else recently.

    The only Oscar story I give a **** about this year is the potential of Drive My Car as a dark horse. It has been quietly sweeping the critics' award so there's an actually good chance it could make the best picture list. A Ryusuke Hamaguchi film being a genuine Oscar contender would be a beautiful cap to an astounding four-film run from one of the best working directors. And a very different type of film to a more crossover title like Parasite as well.

    Can't believe The Power of the Dog Sh1t did so well. Homophobic bore-fest IMHO.

    No mention of Ciaran Hinds there for a supporting nod, after the Irish press told us he should be in the running come awards time.



  • Registered Users Posts: 76,180 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    I wonder has Lady Gaga over taken Kristen Stewart in the best actress race



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,256 ✭✭✭ Mr Crispy


    Stewart was overlooked for the SAGs I think? Haven't seen Spencer yet myself, but there was a lot of praise for her in the role.



  • Registered Users Posts: 76,180 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    Yes she was front runner but Kidman then won the drama GG



  • Registered Users Posts: 28,743 ✭✭✭✭ gmisk


    I thought it was very good, interesting and different you could tell same director as Jackie. She was brilliant in it imo

    Colman is becoming like Streep, will always get nominated but she is a talented actress

    Pete Davidson in talks to host



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,735 ✭✭✭ El Rifle


    Can only be politics and money that Stewart wasn't nominated for Spencer. The good ol Oscars.

    Mahershala Ali a contender for Swan Song

    Can't stand Cumberbatch so have managed to dissuade the Mrs from watching it

    I neither like nor dislike Colman, but I hold it against her that she got the Oscar Rachel Weisz should have gotten for The Favourite. Feel hers was the real leading performance in that.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,000 ✭✭✭ Wrongway1985


    You hold it against Colman that she was opted for selection in lead role in a film revolving around Queen Anne where she in fact played Queen Anne?? Weisz already the recipient of an Oscar so not really a big deal and I'm sure some people would contest she herself stole it from Michelle Williams that year ha.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,256 ✭✭✭ Mr Crispy


    It's not like she selected herself as winner.

    They selected Regina King in the category Weisz was actually nominated in then. Competent performance in a bang average movie but probably just the tonic the year directly after the whole hashtag Oscarssowhite business.

    I don’t think it’s in the running for anything but I watched ‘The Tragedy of Macbeth’ recently, and thought it was absolutely terrible.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,865 ✭✭✭ Shelga


    Jessie Buckley for Best Supporting Actress and "Careen Hinds" for Best Supporting Actor. Not bad for Ireland! Van Morrison also nominated for Best Original Song, and a slew of noms for Belfast in general. Saw it the other day, really enjoyed it!



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,710 ✭✭✭ speedboatchase


    The five Best Actress nominations are completely different to the seven BAFTA nominees for Best Actress. Crazy stuff



  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Arts Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 27,410 CMod ✭✭✭✭ johnny_ultimate


    Really great to see Drive My Car breaking through into best director and best film. Both Hamaguchi films last year were in my top three favourites of the year, and DMC is quite an unlikely film to feature in either category. A beautiful, thoughtful film deserving of all the praise.

    A damn shame some of the best performances of the year were completely overlooked though. Ruth Negga, Simon Rex, Alanna Haim, Renate Reinsve... hell, I even think Catriona Balfe (in a film I didn't like) is a strange omission given some of the competition.



  • Registered Users Posts: 76,180 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1


    No Lady Gaga


    Jessica Chastain (The Eyes of Tammy Faye), Olivia Colman (The Lost Daughter), Penélope Cruz (Madres Paralelas), Nicole Kidman (Being the Ricardos) and Kristen Stewart (Spencer)



  • Registered Users Posts: 28,743 ✭✭✭✭ gmisk


    Lovely to see Penelope Cruz getting a nom well deserved she is terrific in Parallel Mothers.

    Ciaran Hinds well deserved a lovely humble fella and a proper character actor.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,845 ✭✭✭ Man Vs ManUre


    Can’t believe Denzel got nominated for that awful MacBeth film.
