The Green Book writer who tweeted anti-Muslim stuff has apologized. Lots of Oscar campaign rehab going on this week, in addition to Gaga disavowing R. Kelly.

 

 

While a lot of the blowback is deserved, it’s always fascinating to watch how rival studios take each other down during Oscar season, especially with stuff that’s already been publicly available but didn’t cause controversy when it originally happened (like the Farrelly penis-flashing admission from 1998, a pre-social media era).

 

Nate Jones writes about it in Vulture:

 

Quote

 This kind of opposition-research leaking the week Oscar voting begins is perhaps not a coincidence: Last year, I got anonymous DMs from someone who wanted me to write about pervy passages from Christopher Plummer’s memoir, right around the time he started getting supporting actor buzz.

Many in Hollywood still haven’t learned any lessons from the #MeToo movement, but awards strategists seem to be picking up the new rules pretty quick.

 

I found that line telling: how #metoo has been used not to make Hollywood workplaces safer or more equitable, but instead cynically used as a weapon to exact revenge or cripple enemies.

I am happy that Regina King got an Oscar nomination. I am also glad that Blackkklansman got some Oscar Nominations. Blackklansman was a good movie, I enjoyed it.

No Bradley Cooper in Directing is the gag of this morning’s Oscar nominations. It’s funny: the Academy used to love actor/directors (Beatty, Redford, Costner, Gibson). Not so much anymore, with Ben Affleck getting snubbed a few years back for “Argo.”

 

No Farrelly for Directing for Green Book, but Lanthimos got in for The Favourite.

 

No Won’t You Be My Neighbor? in Documentary Feature is a big snub.

 

Roma got two acting noms (for Aparicio and da Tavira), which shows some strength and a willingness to embrace Netflix (along with the surprising nods for The Ballad of Buster Scruggs). Lots of fear in the industry that Netflix wants to make them obsolete, of course, but that sentiment could be softening in terms of the awards academies.

 

Emily Blunt shut out again, this year for two buzzy roles (Mary Poppins Returns and A Quiet Place).

 

Spike got his first Director nod.

 

 

Some of saying that Blackkklansman is well-positioned to take Best Picture.

 

 

The Academy’s drive to diversify members in terms of race, gender, and especially nationality means that the results could begin to diverge from the precursor awards, so we’ll see.

Looks as though Tamblyn got a lot of pushback in the comments.

It's a disgrace that BR is nominated. Not only is it co-directed by a monster, it's mediocre fluff.

 

It mostly seems to have been nominated just because it made money. 

 

This must be one of the worst years for Oscar frontrunners. Christian Bale seems likely to win for Vice but the movie was panned by many. Green Book seems likely to clean up, yet I have read so many, many, many bad things about the movie and the people who make it.

People are PISSED about this. Only Gaga/Cooper and Kendrick/SZA have been asked to perform their Best Song nominees, even though Jennifer Hudson and Emily Blunt were among the other performers of nominated songs.
