They've just announced this years nominees for the academy awards, I was just wondering what everyone things of the current state of the awards and Hollywood in general.
There are only so many films that can get nominated. Remember The Academy Awards is a business. Whoever has the most money and marketing strategy pretty much wins. It's politics!
I'm actually surprised that "Won't You Be My Neighbor" wasn't nominated for anything! It was perhaps the best movie of the year and relates to the current culture. At least a mention in the documentary category would be nice.
I think "the best" is too subjective for an award that can encompass all of them.I can see that as true. So, is there an award in the film industry that better represents "the best" movies?
I'm certainly not impressed with the nominations i've seen so far...
I watched A Star is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody this week and they both felt like every other musical biopic film that I've seen. I enjoy those kinds of films and they're both well made but it's so familiar.... Are either of them better than Walk the Line or The Doors ? Probably not.
And then there's the other film I've seen, Black Panther... I actually laughed when i saw it was nominated. I thought it was the worst film in the entire avengers series. Iron Man is one of the best films ever made... so good it launched what is probably the largest film franchise in history. Where was it's nomination? lol what a joke.
Agreed, Black Panther was just not finished. It looks like the forgot half of the CGI. Not a very compelling villain.
Not to mention they have the most ass backward society in the entire world but they're supposed to be advanced?
Can you imagine if the dudes dad hadn't been assassinated..
This old dude is going to fight michael b jordan in hand to hand combat for control of the kingdom???
