    We don’t talk about Bruno no no no, we don’t talk about Bruno. Why wasn’t this song nominated??

    Jared Leto was an absolute trainwreck in house of Gucci....should be nowhere near any award accept a Razzie

    Miranda et al decided not to put it forward for consideration.

    Ya it wasn't a viral hit by time of deadline submission.

    BAFTA's airing on BBC1 at 7pm tonight.

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,972 ✭✭✭✭ siblers

    I usually enjoy the BAFTAS but this is pretty poor. Doesn't help so many of the winners aren't present

  • Registered Users Posts: 77,295 ✭✭✭✭ JP Liz V1

    Is Ariana DeBose the only guaranteed lock as she has won every award, Will Smith and Jane Campion also winning a lot

    Rebel Wilson seemed a bit nervy - nearly didn't recognise her she lost so much weight

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,111 ✭✭✭ Man Vs ManUre

    I can’t stand her fat or thin she is a pain in the hole. Completely 1 dimensional actor.

    I think Coda for best picture with Troy for best supporting actor could be near locks

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,334 ✭✭✭ Wombatman

    Sh!te best picture nominations this year IMHO. You know you are in trouble when there are two remakes in the mix.

  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Arts Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 27,759 CMod ✭✭✭✭ johnny_ultimate

    Three, actually, as CODA is a remake of a French film 😁

    Personally feel Drive My Car is one of the very best films nominated for Best Picture in recent years (with seemingly no chance of actually winning), and I’m quite fond of Power of the Dog, West Side Story and Licorice Pizza too.

    CODA seems to be emerging as a late favourite, surprisingly. The type of film I’d usually hate but it might have caught me in a very generous mood because I found it charming and effective in its utterly formulaic, inoffensive way. Would much rather see it win over Belfast.

  • Registered Users Posts: 6,027 ✭✭✭ Wrongway1985

    Four actually Nightmare Alley is also a remake!

  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Arts Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 27,759 CMod ✭✭✭✭ johnny_ultimate

    Ha I’d actually counted that, it was Dune I’d neglected 😅

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,334 ✭✭✭ Wombatman

    Yeah, I deliberately left out Dune because it's really a very different take on the book and not a remake in my mind. Missed that Coda was a remake alright.

    I'd be happy with a Dune win to be fair. Has some touches of brilliance to it. Hated Power of the Dog. Licorice Pizza didn't do much for me. I left reviews for both. Nightmare Alley was like a bad made for video movie from the 80s. It looked cheap and had nothing original to offer.

    CODA would be my pick out of the 6 I've seen closely followed by Dune they leave the rest I've seen for dust tbh but Dune hasn't a hope anyway.

    Haven't seen King Dick,Pizza,Drive Me Car or West Side Story (original dull enough).

    Watched The Eyes of Tammy Faye last night,a flawed piece but mildly entertaining largely in part to the bombastic (in a good way) performance from Chastain I'd be stunned if she's toppled there.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,985 ✭✭✭ flasher0030

    Haven’t seen many of the nominations. But did see Coda. And loved it. Was very surprised how much I got in to it. Didn’t think it would be for me. Loved it. Watched over half of nightmare alley last night. Stopped watching. It was starting to annoy me. Dragged out. Will watch the rest tonight for completion. Maybe it will surprise me. I’ve read that it is some type of mystery drama. I haven’t seen anything mysterious yet.

    I had to wiki Bruce’s filmography to see if that category was correct, wow, 2022 looks to be gearing up for moms of the same.

  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 29,894 CMod ✭✭✭✭ pixelburp

    I dunno, kinda got a little done with the Razzies salt at this stage; at first it was cute, and Halle Berry turning up to collect her own was funny, but the gimmick seems played out. At least the Oscars ostensibly celebrate cinema, while few people try to make a bad movie.

    Besides, my own salt about Willis took a pause, if those rumours are to be believed about him the glut of movie landfill feel poignant and sad.

    Nina Wadia is a bit of a g(m)ilf 🙂

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,847 ✭✭✭ RabbleRouser2k

    Watching the Oscars right now...

    Will Smith punching Chris Rock was legit. It even cut to Will shouting 'keep my wifes name out of your f***ing mouth!'. Was not scripted. (Sky didn't censor the audio).

    Funny seeing the hosts called out for stealing jokes. Amy Schumer's Leo DiCaprio joke was stolen from a 2021 tweet.

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,781 ✭✭✭ Cody montana

    That was wild.

  • Registered Users Posts: 18,144 ✭✭✭✭ The Princess Bride

    It will be interesting to see Will Smith's acceptance speech if he wins Best Actor award.

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,847 ✭✭✭ RabbleRouser2k

    And he did... it's cringey. Talking bout 'protecting' his family....

  • Registered Users Posts: 18,144 ✭✭✭✭ The Princess Bride

    Well, he did in his own way, I guess.

    Here comes the apology...

  • Advertisement
  • Registered Users Posts: 7,847 ✭✭✭ RabbleRouser2k

    He knows he messed up. It won't be 'congrats for winning an award'... instead it's 'you made a damn fool of yourself, AGAIN!'.

    His oscar speech, and the way folks were standing in the sideline. It was awkward. You could feel the tension. He meandered through it, and his apology was as half-hearted as his acting.

    Apology to the academy, but not to Chris Rock. He didn't write the joke. Will Smith knows nobody writes the speeches they deliver.
