Some context:

India fucked up by not submitting RRR for International Feature (each country only gets to submit one movie), but they'll still be the highlight of the show with a live performance of the absolute banger Naatu Naatu.

 

Andrea Riseborough got a surprise nomination for a movie nobody has heard of, presumably due to a last-minute Twitter campaign:

MCDTOLE_EC030.jpg?w=780
WWW.INDIEWIRE.COM

Why are celebrities like Kate Winslet, Amy Adams, and Gwyneth Paltrow backing an indie movie that made $27,000?

 

It probably doesn't matter that much since it's going to be either Blanchett or Yeoh.

'Elvis' is... certainly a movie. Not one I'd consider for Best Picture.

 

I mean, look, I haven't watched many of the other nominees.... but I'm just saying if Elvis is one of the best films of the year, then that's bad. :p 

 

I saw The Black Phone shortly before Elvis and it was like night and day: Elvis was over-produced, too long, tried to do too much, and never could breathe, whereas Black Phone was lean and knew what it was and a really good movie. They're not even close to the same, horror movies aren't recognized much, and I know "competent movie about a real person" is Oscar-bait, but yeah.

I watched the first 10 minutes when it hit HBO Max, and I knew there was no way I was going to make it through another 2.5 hours of that. But I know it certainly has its fans. It feels like this year's Bohemian Rhapsody, where people love the subject and therefore love the movie. There's always one or two questionable nominees, especially now that they're doing the full 10. I don't think it's going to win anything outside of maybe Costumes. My money is on Banshees and Everything Everywhere splitting most of the major awards.

Not a lot of surprises given the rest of Awards season, but I'm happy that Everything Everywhere has somehow made it all the way to the finish line. I never would have guessed such a strange and hilarious movie released in March would be getting all the Oscar noms. Especially glad that the Oscars gave it a nom for editing. I still don't believe the Academy has it in them to actually give them best picture, but it's amazing to see it as the favorite to win right now.

 

I agree that Elvis stands out as by far the least deserving of the BP nominees.

 

Of all the categories, I'm surprised that Maverick didn't get cinematography, but it's far from the worst snub, and it got a lot more noms than I'd have guessed.

 

I personally wouldn't give Avatar BP, but I might have put it up for cinematography and director.

 

Another reminder of how much I want to see All That Breathes, but with no indication as to when it will be available. It's being distributed by HBO, you'd think they could figure it out.

I expected to see The Whale for adaptation, directing, and/or picture. Same for Babylon and Bones and All. Also nothing at all in any category for She Said, The Woman King, After Yang, and Nope is surprising. Chan-wook Park's Decision to Leave being completely left out of best international film is strange as well. 

 

Like, it's the Oscars. I don't expect them to get to the really good, meaty indie films that few have heard of like Catherine Called Birdy, Nanny or Funny Pages. I'm shocked Aftersun even got nominated for best actor (deservedly) since that kind of film is usually under the Oscar radar. I don't even expect "bigger" films than those for the Oscars to consider like Kimi, Happening, Barbarian, Cha Cha Real Smooth, Good Luck to You Leo Grande or Till. And yet still some surprises.

 

Also Avatar: The Way of Water being a best picture nomination over something like The Batman (which got nothing, not even cinematography) is laugh worthy. The Batman was super well done if somewhat forgettable but Avatar 2 was solid at best. I know they expanded the best picture nominations to be more inclusive of genre films done really well that the Academy doesn't usually recognize (hence Top Gun: Maverick being on there despite the story and depth of characters being just fine, nothing mind blowing) but Avatar 2 being the other genre pick (ignoring EEAAO)? I dunno, I think there were better options but most seem to really dig it so whatever. Also, Elvis? As others have said, this year's Bohemian Rhapsody.

There are so very many films that could easily take the slots on the Best Picture list that are being squatted in by Dances with Wolves In Space Part Dex, White Guy Who Made A Killing From Ripping Off Black Music, A Competently Made Imitation of The Greatest Anti-War Film Ever Made, and The World's Favorite Scientologist Makes a Paean to American Militarism (Again).

Yes but again it's the Oscars. It's always going to be obvious picks, even when it's "smaller" films. Avatar 2 and Elvis are very poor, but explicable Oscar choices though.

To be fair, Terrifier 2 DID submit themselves for a make up special FX oscar nomination & they didn't get it, so I COULD take issue & umbrage w/ the Academy but I choose not to as I have zero influence or control over who they put over.
