Film Awards Thread

Olivia Coleman winning was definitely the biggest upset so far. A lot of people were predicting that Glenn Close would win, and if not her than Lady Gaga. Olivia seemed very shocked that she won, though she was gracious and seems like a nice lady.

Yes! Olivia Colman with the upset! Once again her speech was great and funny. I love her British kookiness and humour.

I think that Green Book winning is another bit of an upset. I had thought that Roma would win it, with all of the awards it has won so far tonight.

Y'know, I purged all my rage on Crash and some other stuff, so I don't get into the increasingly OTT Oscars psychodrama most years anymore. It's become so hot take histrionic and cliquish. When the Oscars disappoint me now all I can do is laugh at this point. It's not the worst thing to ever win but it's still so white-centric, derivative, schlocky and full of issues. It is a shocker, but it's typical of the older Academy voters. You'd think they'd have gotten it out of their system after Driving Miss Daisy and Crash but here we are.

 

I like BP a lot but def did not think it deserved Best Picture. I sure would've preferred it over this though.

They spread the wealth tonight: I think every Best Picture nominee went home with something.

 

I thought The Favourite might come up empty until Olivia won.

The Oscars have been kind of weird for various years now regarding the Best Picture field. Multiples time you'll have films that are heavily favored/nominated/win multiple awards lose out to a film that barely wins any awards. There have been some surprises sneaking in and winning Best Picture. And you also have quite a few films that no one has hardly seen or care to see winning Best Picture.
