  3. We'll be looking at a hugely crowded schedule in the second half of the year. I can see a good few of what would have been 'Oscar bait' contenders being held for 2021 as there simply won't be room.

  4. Yes, I'm sure the Razzies will come through, don't worry.
     
  5. Just read this great little article -

    http://thefilmexperience.net/blog/2020/3/22/oscar-category-fraud-by-the-numbers.html

    As pointed out many times by @Baby Clyde we now have confirmation of the most egregious "Supporting" campaigns of the last 20 years... take a bow the following and their huge screentime -

    1) Ethan Hawke - Training Day (61%)
    2) Rooney Mara - Carol (60%)
    3) Cate Blanchett - Notes On A Scandal (56%)
    4) Hailee Steinfeld - True Grit (55%)
    5) Jamie Foxx - Collateral (54%)
    6) Mahershala Ali - Green Book (52%)
    7) Alicia Vikander - The Danish Girl (50%)
    =8) Emma Stone - The Favourite (48%)
    =8) Thomas Haden Church - Sideways (48%)
    =8) Woody Harrelson - The Messenger (48%)

    I was pretty shocked by Harrelson being in this list (never for a second considered him Leading) and by Ms. Roberts being as low as 11th place...

    I don’t exactly agree with what they’re implying as context plays a role, no doubt. Like Rosamund Pike in Gone Girl...

  8. Oh absolutely - I mean, loads of the Leading Nominees on the list have far less screentime than the above list yet unquestionably dominate the narrative and have films "about them"...

    I now feel the need to rewatch The Messenger (Samantha Morton was robbed of a nomination in a year when there was a particularly open "5th spot" once Mon'nique had secured #1 on everyone's ballot) - was Harrelson lurking in the background of loads of shots without speaking? I don't recall him ever being a character driving narrative, with a backstory or agency... he literally stole focus from and supported Ben Foster!

  9. It won't surprise you that I'm obsessed with this website. I literally have it bookmarked and probably refer to it about 10 times a day. That is a pretty sad confession.
     
  10. Rachel had to have had more screen time than Emma in The Favourite.

  11. Not even close. Rachel disappears for the last 3rd. Emma has by far the most of anyone.....

    Rachel - 42:51
    Olivia - 49:48
    Emma - 57:20

  12. Oh wow. I guess I was so into Rachels performance that to me it was her movie.

  13. Not totally convinced this will be any good but I hope it is, and whew at the sex scenes. Potentially looks Weekend-esq.
     
  14. Yea not sure the movie looks that good, but Henry is a Movie Star.

  15. Henry Golding is, unfortunately, an awful actor.

  16. All three ladies deserved Oscars for The Favourite.

    We needed IT’S A TIE!

  17. The problem is, the lead category that year was exceptionally strong, so as good as Emma and Rachel are I'm struggling to think who could have made way for them.
     
  18. Emma was great in The Favourite, and clearly she had the most screentime, but she didn't feel miscategorised as a supporting performance to me - possibly because she didn't appear until later on? It very much felt like Olivia and Rachel's film to me.

  19. Later on???

    She first appears in the film at the 2:53 mark.

  20. Maybe they were a really action packed not-quite-3-minutes.

    ...I clearly don't remember that film as well as I thought.
