There’s a randomness to these nominations that I love; I think the expanded membership is pushing their way through, and it makes the Academy go their own way instead of being a pre-determined final coronation.
As far as I’m aware, yes. If you’re counting best picture, animated feature, international feature and documentary feature.Is this the first time a film has been nominated in three different “Best Picture/Feature” categories?
Fff I don’t really follow Oscar campaigns closely, just watch the movies and then try blindly guess on the night so this is a genuine question - could Gaga’s campaign actually worked against her here? She was hustling and seemed like a dead cert even as a fringe observer, but it’s hard to deny her personality and somewhat pretentiousness in interviews seemed to overtake talk of her actual portrayal. Was she basically too unbearable for the Academy to take her seriously?
Jessie should've already been on the Oscars stage two years ago, but alas the original song branch is truly evil
House of Gucci is much better than Being the Ricardos, but I think we’re in a Nicole Kidman overdue a second Oscar moment of whateverIsn't there an argument to be made that the Academy likes being pandered to? It's not like a massive campaign ever hurt anyone's chances. Gaga might have taken it a little too far, but I think the main problem was just House of Gucci being a weak movie.
