    Didn't need trade sites for BlacKkKlansman. It was widely released. Just did not see it, so didn't mention it.

    Yes, it got a wide release, but BlacKkKlansman dominated the trades in May during Cannes, not in August when it got it's theatrical release. And I mentioned that as an example because film festivals were asked about.

    The far right is quite upset that in First Man there isn't an actual scene of the flag being planted on the moon. Buffoons.

    At times it's quite an extraordinary movie. The film language it uses is largely borrowed from the Brad Pitt section of Terrence Malick's The Tree of Life.

    There is a character moment at the end of the film that blew me away but can't be discussed until everyone has seen it.

    BlacKkKlansman is a solid movie, and will get nominated in spots but if the other prestige movies for the remaining of the year are as good as they're supposed to be, it will be largely forgotten or ignored.

    I saw it. The film surprised me. It was so personal and intimate. I liked that. Also, it nicely captured the claustrophobic feel of being in those pods.

    2019 Oscars Noms and Discussion

    Roma is nominated for best pic and for best foreign film, I always thought it was one category or the other.

    I wonder if the rule has changed? I seem to remember this impacted some movies in the 80’s that stayed in foreign film category instead of best picture.

    Life is Beautiful, Il Postino, Babel, and Crouching Tiger are ones off the top of my head in recent memory nominated in both categories. As long as they fulfill both requirements, they are eligible for both. Animated and documentary films are also eligible for best picture as long as they meet the requirements. I don't think there's ever been a documentary that's received a best pic nomination though, Fahrenheit was the closest to doing so I believe.

    Quite a bit of outrage that Beale Street was snubbed.

    Along with people being really surprised that Bohemian Rhapsody is getting this kind of love. Rami? Expected, but not the movie.

    Leave No Trace and its actors also were snubbed. Making me sad.

    I looked it up. A foreign film must have an LA theatrical release in order to be eligible in other categories.

    Looks like Roma's got this to me (except no editing nomination which used to be important to a film's best picture chances).

    To me it was really surprising there wasn't an editing nomination. I just saw it this weekend, and I thought the editing and direction is what shined the most (+ Yalitza Aparicio).

    I'm a bit surprised Marina de Tavira received a nomination. I found the role to be fairly marginal.

    Overall, I really enjoyed the film's subtlety and humor. I think I was less touched by the storytelling than most people.

    I find these nominations much more interesting than the GGs and happy that Bradley Cooper didn't get nominated for directing a film that has already been made three times before.
