ACADEMY AWARDS

Just a step away from Politics, Bush Fires, Climate Change and who can be the best "cut and paster" I am sure you have opinions without resorting to bringing in an expert to prove yours is right!

Have you seen any of the movies? don't worry if you haven't,  who will you back or pick to win the acting awards.

You might like to make your own awards for a category of "yours"

Personally I think the performance of Joacham Phoenix would be very hard to out do.... I have seen the Joker, Marriage Story and I thought the Taratino Hollywood film was pretty ordinary.

Apparently Renee Zellweggar is a "shoe in" for the best actress award for Judy.

Margot Robbie is the only Australian nom for "Bombshell"....haven't seen it yet.

Your views.....

PS WE have a couple of exceptional experts on this site in Sluggy and PT (ParramattaTragic) who will remained unchallenged in any trivia contest.....unless you want to challenge either of them.

  • Renee Zellwegger was brilliant. The Tarantino movie was so-so. The Irishman should not be in the running at all.

    • Interesting you say that about the Irishman.....we watched it on Sunday and my wife thought it was the best of the Academy Award movies she has seen. I sort of half agree with her, but am hoping for something better. The Joker was very polarising as a movie, notwithstanding the unbelievable performance of the lead actor. IMO

      1917 will be out soon, I sort of expect it to blow the others away for best picture.....but who knows?

  • That is interesting.Poppa .I read a whole lot of reader comments on reviews from people who saw it and a lot said much the same as I did. .The main reviewer who wrote the article liked it

    • Well the subjectivity of liking a movie can never be argued logically Tad, pure opinion and nothing more.

      I think the violence in "the joker" would be distressing for you, but then the mental anguish he was pushed into can make for very good discusion. i.e. is the "Joker" a psychopath or a sociopath.....or was he nether before he was harrassed the way he was?

      PS I have no doubt he ended up a psychopath.

      • Poppa let me qualify maybe a bit more. Pepsi was great.I like De niro a lot .One of my all time favs. He didn,t seem original for me — maybe overacted a fair bit —- that is the main criticism I have with a lot of Australian movies. Sometimes feels like you are watching a high school play .If you know what I mean. I haven,t seen the Joker yet but will do so. I like period films the best along with European dubbed movies.We are planning to see little women soon. We also saw the Lier recently which was great. Recommend It highly 

  • The Today Show reported this morning that contoversially "no female had been nominated for best director". Lol, what a huge controversy!! Kill me now.

    I blame Scomo

    • You know nothing  Nidge,  it's climax changing that did it. 

      Oops,  sorry you are right, Scumboy missed last Sundays sermon. His fault the girls are not excited 

       

       

      • This is a clean post you silly old bastard, there will be no climax's here!

        • Have you ever witnessed the after parties at the logies mate. 

          More comings than goings. 

          • Not that The Irishman would know if he was coming or going !!!
