LOL i just looked at the oscar nominations. what in the holy christ, this is a shitshow

@Spacedrake
jojo rabbit for best picture, huh. jokester too. really. god damn

@LarryDavis I don't mind jojo rabbit being there but charlize theron in bombshell? not to mention no de niro for best actor

@Spacedrake
pacino was just doing Standard Pacino and his accent was all over the place

@Spacedrake
god all these noms for joker are baffling. best actor for Joaquin? sure, absolutely. possibly winner overall

but thats the only good thing in the movie. the scores alright i guess

@LarryDavis yeah, best cinematography? god no. I have this awful feeling it's gonna sweep

@Spacedrake
i think it wont get anything apart from maybe best actor and UOATIH will win everything else, because the academy loooooooooves movies about hollywood

@Spacedrake
lol i got to the bottom and was like "oh right Knives Out is a movie. what the fuck"

i havent seen it but i feel confident in saying its better than almost every other movie nominated

@LarryDavis @Spacedrake i remember thinking how much i didn't like the score, writing and directing while i was watching it and it's a testament to how much joaquin owns that he carried a bleh movie into being pretty enjoyable entirely on his back

@lennie @Spacedrake
i thought the score was alright, it was just used way too heavily, but idk if thats the composers fault

@lennie @Spacedrake
the stair dance part is also bizarre

i have to assume they had some other song in mind and had to replace it, because rock and roll part 2 doesnt sync up with it at all, in any way. it seems more like a bad youtube edit than the edits many of us have made

@LarryDavis @Spacedrake yeah that was also my issue with it which maybe is the director's fault instead

@LarryDavis hmm probably true actually but I think they both deserve to be there. pacino brought so much energy to that film and really made the relationships he had with frank's family work, imo
