    Yeah, its fine. I just remember the Oscars being like a big deal and something that actually got discussed at the coffee machine at work on Mondays. No one appears to care anymore. As we have all been saying - lots of factors at work here but the fact remains that wwards shows are not big sellers anymore.

    Is that a...blanket statement?

    Do you post anything that doesn’t contradict @QUIGONMIKE ?

    The ratings don’t lie. Technically, OK, you "got me". I’ll change it and say hardly anyone cares. Mmmkay? :p

    Again, I don't think Mike can see this, but someone tell him the Game Awards ratings doubled this year. Awards shows can still be popular (and yes people bring up politics at TGA). It's more that TGA are streaming, not on TV, and ALL tv shows besides live sports are going down in ratings.

    ... but how?

    How can both Kaluuya and Stanfield get Supporting Actor nominations?!? I would have assumed Kaluuya could have stuck with SA (because Stanfield would be the lead)... but, I guess not?

    They're both supporting, uh, the concept of injustice?

    I'm legitimately relieved quack pseudo-science apology tour Šarlatán did not get nominated despite making the Best International short list. I have no idea why the ČFTA is so into it, even bracketing for rubbish ideas it's not very good.

    So, my HS classmate was nominated for the Judas and the Black Messiah script, so that's fun...

    Most nominations- Mank. Oof I have a feeling it's gonna walk away empty-handed. Maybe a technical award or two, but it's outclassed in almost every category it's up for.

    But hey! Best Director is almost guaranteed to be an Asian person, and most likely an Asian woman.

    I'm not about to defend literally anything regarding Hillbilly Elegy, but the Razzies should just be ignored at all times.

    I have very little affection for the Razzies, Sia's Music is one of the few instances where the nominee actually deserved it.

    finally saw Judas and the Black Messiah, really solid. I remain befuddled that both Kaluuya and Stanfield both got best supporting actor nominations. Not that its undeserved, heaves no! It's basically a two main character movie, is there not a lead actor here? But the supporting/lead actor nominations and who gets what have been a personal aggravation of mine for like years.

    Only 3 Best Picture nominations to go, The Father, Minari and Nomadland. Father supposed to hit google movies VOD on Friday, Minari already there and Nomadland on DisneyPlustStar April 9th so be able to get it all in before the ceremony. I do think it'll have kinda divebombing ratings though moreso than usual, if only because not many people know these nominations and zoom awards remote ceremony. But ratings aren't exactly a personal driving force to check it out.

    I'm curious how Best Actress will go. There's not really a frontrunner, and there's been a different winner at every major award show so far. Best Film otoh seems a lock for Nomadland.

    Nomadland is in on a lock for Best Picture but the last few years have some the frontrunner losing out so I'd think a good payout bet would be Minari. Only have Minari and the Father to go for best picture nomination watches for me.
