Hello, I have just now seen the Oscar nominations and I cannot stop texting my husband "what the fuck"
@Pixley jokers text
@breakfastgolem I had heard about Joker getting the most nominations, but like, there are so many baffling things in here,
@Pixley White dude movies are always baffling.
@Pixley I mean, Adam Sandler played a better version of Joker in "Uncut Gems" at least.
@Pixley Please note: I have seen neither movie and I have no interest in seeing Joker, but I am keeping this comparison because it is valid.
@breakfastgolem this is valid, I'm pretty sure
@derek it's so BAD, like, I know it's always a farce but my GOD
@Pixley I mean, full disclosure, a bunch of those movies I like, but most of it is just silly, I mean come on y'all
@derek surely we can agree that both the popes from the film "A Coupla Popes" did not need to be nominated
@Pixley Was Crawl nominated for anything
Was that any good, as trash?
@Pixley It was actually really fun and fairly satisfying
It's as close to perfect as a disaster thriller creature feature can get
@Pixley Also, what the fuck, why not
@douglasfur why anything!!!!
@Pixley I just want a CGI alligator to lumber on stage to accept the award for Best Actor
@douglasfur y e s
@Pixley I'm glad that the oscars topped out in 2018 when they voted for the cloaca movie, and that I no longer need to pay attention to them
@Pixley I mean, it's always a little hmm but this year is really especially hmmmmm, right??
@WoozleWuzzle it's really especially hmmmmm! Ford v Ferrari????? Tom Hanks as supporting actor in the Mr. Rogers movie, in which he plays Mr. Rogers??????? Like??????????
@Pixley yes!! I could not make out how he's not the lead in it. Very weird. And how on earth Tarantino has got in the director list ahead of Greta Gerwig is just, ughhhh. And like Scarlett Johansson twice. And Brad Pitt?? Booooo!
@WoozleWuzzle oh my god I didn't even notice Scarlett Johansson twice, ughhhhhhhhh come ON
@Pixley I mean, I would begrudge her for Marriage Story I suppose but goodness Jojo Rabbit looks tiresome. At least Parasite is there. And this movie Honeyland, which I really hope a bunch more people watch
@Pixley I just learned theres a toy story 2
@Pixley also I didn't see very many movies, but uh wheres knives out bitches.
@hope the ONLY thing it got was screenplay, which, if you're only going to give it one that makes sense, but why would you only give it one??????
@Pixley everything about it was nearly perfect!
@hope like at LEAST throw it a production design or costume nomination, did you SEE it, my GOD
@Pixley DID THEY? I mean I'm not saying it deserves to win best picture, because I've seen none of the ones nominated, but it at least should be on the board.
I try not to get any feelings about awards shows because you know how I am
...Gerwig wasn't nominated for Director but Sam fucking Mendes was? It's okay, Greta, Stanley never won shit for his brilliance either
@Pixley (I LOVE Revolutionary Road, so so much, but come ON)
@neoncoughh 1917 was certainly the *most* directing
@Pixley I thought Joker was brilliant, but I'm not sure it deserves 11 noms.
But what do I know. I pretty much see the AA as a marketing exercise anyway.
@kmckaig the point isn't that it's not a marketing exercise, the point is that half these nominations literally make no sense
@Pixley The only other film on the list I've seen is "Ford vs. Ferrari" and there's no way that deserves a BP nod. It's a good film but not on that level.
