Of course the Academy is once again more amused by impersonations of real people than actual performances. Awkwafina’s amazing performance gets snubbed in favour of Charlize Theron’s face makeup and Renee Zellweger doing her usual squinty thing for 2 hours.

I guess that's all they did: put makeup on and squint. You want to be upset about how these decisions get made, that's fine. I get that there's a lot of bullshit politics around these awards, but man, at least try to come up with a more educated critique of their performances.

Nice to see Scarlett finally get recognized by the Academy. I feel like she's put on some great, ignored performances over the years, most notably Girl with the Pearl Earring and Lost in Translation. I honestly wouldn't be shocked if she won Lead Actress and spoil Renee's party.

Parasite and Dolor y gloria are so far the best movies I've seen from 2019. Too bad they will probably fight only for Best Foreign Language Movie. It's a wishful thinking but Banderas should get an Oscar for acting. Also I hope Hopkins will at least be nominated.
Marriage story is meh, Once upon... is good but not amazing. Haven't seen Joker nor Bombshell.
Yes! both of them nominated. And Parasite nominated in so many categories is awesome news!
As usual Best International Feature Film is very interesting. I'm very surprised Corpus Christi is nominated.

Then please explain Taron Egerton's portrayal of Elton John? He is snubbed too.🤷

So I'm guessing the the Oscars thought "We had lots of women and black people nominated last year, that should satisfy them for the next 10 years"and proceeded with the nominations this year.

It's disgusting.

What's disgusting is people's obsession with racial representation in nominations.
