Not watched any of the Best Picture films although I did start the first 5 minutes of Minari.

Trump will go mental if another South Korean based film sweeps the board

I don't think The Father is even out yet ? If that is the Alzheimer's one with Hopkins and Coleman.

To be fair to Maria Bakalova, she's very good in Borat and the quality of the film really doesn't have any bearing on the talent of the performers much of the time. You can be brilliant in a stupid bit of fluff or even something truly woeful. I think Borat's nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay though is probably more of a **** take than much of what goes down in the film itself (and I actually enjoyed Borat 2 for the most part!).

Gotta say, 2020 has been a real struggle for me to keep up to date on news rekeases and this is the first Oscars ceremony in decades where I've not seen about 90% of the films nominated. The pandemic has proven the film industry doesn't need cinemas, but got damn if spreading out the distribution of films across the various different streaming services out there has made it a real ******* pain in the arse for viewerrs to keep track and keep up with what's coming out and where. It also feels like to me that this year has been particularly bad for overlooking movies released earlier in the Oscars year, most of what I see in the nominations list seems to have come out in the last three months or so.

Nomadland is the only oscars-favourite that I've seen and it's excellent. The thread over on Blu-ray.com is quite amusing as well, infested with the usual comic book fanboys moaning about how boring it is (one person even said Frances McDormand is the worst actor to ever have won an oscar ). One member said something along the lines of "I've watched it three times now and it bores me to tears"! which pretty much sums up how some people are completely incapable of trusting their own taste in film, who the hell watches a film they don't enjoy three times hoping to reach the critical consensus?

At least we’ve got over a month to try and watch them all! It would be great if Minari got best picture but I doubt it after Parasite last year.
Farmageddon though? Didn’t that come out in 2019?

Saw my octopus teacher recently. Good film, recommended. Wonder if itll win.

Trial of the CHicago 7 is one of the best films I saw last year, Sorkin pull si tout of the bag yet again. Didn't like Mank though, found that a bit dull

Mank a film designed for and only really enjoyed by film makers and their critics.

Love Fincher as well.

Only got round to watching The Trial of the Chicago 7 last weekend and thought it was very good. Not seen any of the others.

I also love Fincher, for me he peaked with Fight Club, one of my favourite films

Saw The Father today - thought it was very good and if the judges are in the right mood it may well sneak it IMHO.

Good performances from Hopkins and Colman though if you have had a parent(s) with dementia some of it might be upsetting viewing.

Saw The Dissident yesterday which really should be up for best documentary oscar but having trouble getting distribution as it critiques Saudi Arabia and is an uncomfortable truth as we are all allies with the country (oil and arms deals).

I don't really like Sorkin, but I watched 'The Trial of the Chicago 7' last night and enjoyed it. I'm surprised Mark Rylance didn't pick up a nomination, although I'm really behind in seeing the other contenders this year.

We watched The Dissident at the weekend and found it very interesting but also quite disturbing too!
We also watched Minari which was OK but I found it to be a bit slow really. It was well filmed and the family dynamics were good, but I just felt like it didn’t really go anywhere. It wasn’t as good as Parasite in my opinion anyway.

I wasn't all that impressed with The Dissident, it offers no more information than reading a relatively short news article would provide and is mostly bogged down by flashy direction. More substance, less style, or at least a shorter runtime would have done this doc the world of good.

Isn’t it strange that most of the categories have at least 5 options, whereas the documentaries only has 4?

Just watched My Octopus Teacher and loved it! I now hope it wins the Oscar! The underwater filming was incredible, and the relationship with the octopus was very moving! My eyes were watering at one point too! Must’ve had an allergic reaction or something?

Good to see Hopkins got Best Actor BAFTA. It really is a brilliant performance in The Father
