  1. I liked Coda. It’s a lovely film but the best picture… I don’t see it for her

  2. Parasite feels too good to be a Best Picture winner.
  3. Does resigning only mean he can no longer vote but can still be nominated in future thus becoming a member again? I'm sensing a comeback within five years. That's showbiz.
  4. Roman Polanski won a Best Director Oscar 25 years after fleeing the US to avoid prosecution for statutory rape, and it took the Academy another 15 years after that to remove his membership. Compared to that, Will could win next year and I'd struggle to raise an eyebrow, to be honest.

    Although obviously a lot will depend on how forgiving the actors' branch of the Academy is.

    Her desperation to insert herself into this narrative and make a damn fool of herself in the process is impressive. Making light of the death of a crew member on a movie set, less than six months after it happened, on a night that’s meant to celebrate the industry is fair game but a man getting slapped is too far? Worms.
  7. How many different ways can Amy try to be a victim in this situation? She is so disgusting.

  8. You know, I'm on Amy's side. It's a real shame that enough people had her best interest in mind and didn't let her go up there and make a career ending joke like that. The dumbassery.
  9. Let’s GOOOOOO

  10. Everyone has lost their minds.

    How do "the academy" keep making the wrong decision at EVERY opportunity.

  14. While they definitely needed to do something, this seems excessive.

  15. I'll take the "10 years" part with a grain of salt. Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins were supposedly permanently banned in 1993 after using their presenting slot to criticise the US government's treatment of HIV positive Haitian refugees; three years later she was on the stage collecting an Oscar for Dead Man Walking.

  18. I was the first to say he crossed a line but a white actor would have just been told to sit it out for a year and no one will convince me otherwise.
  19. You may be right, but I think the Academy are pretty concerned with optics generally and a public incident involving violence is never going to be looked on favourably.

    Russell Crowe was Golden Globe, Critics' Choice and SAG Award nominated for his performance in Cinderella Man; it's hard not to think the phone throwing incident a few months earlier might have had something to do with the Oscar snub.
