The FlOpscars nominations are out and as usual, it’s a mixed list of “ok cool” and “Wtf’s“.
Probably the biggest upset is the fact that Amy Adams didn’t get a nominated for her brilliant performance in Arrival. But I guess Amy didn’t suck enough gold ass for it.
I don’t really care about the Oscars, it lost relevancy and credibility to me when in 1999 the ANNOYING Gwyneth Paltrow won over the MAGNIFICENT Cate Blanchett… that was fucking scandalous!! Or most recently in 2013, when Jennifer Lawrence won over Jessica Chastain.
CHASTAIN > Lawrence!
Anyhow, if ever, I’d love to see the very underrated Viggo Mortensen (Viggo is an amazing actor) win over Casey Affleck.
Viggo deserves more recognition and they should make up to him for his extraordinary performances in Lord Of The Rings, A History Of Violence, Eastern Promises, The Road, etc.
Here’s the most relevant list:
Isabelle Huppert, Elle: YAAAS!
Ruth Negga, Loving: Love her!
Natalie Portman, Jackie: UGH! Natalie Portman is the most overrated actress of her generation. She could play a marionette and still be too wooden to turn in a good performance.
Emma Stone, La La Land: Love her!
Meryl Streep, Florence Foster Jenkins: Meryl could still get a nomination without even having a film.
Casey Affleck, Manchester by the Sea: MEH!
Andrew Garfield, Hacksaw Ridge: MEH!
Ryan Gosling, La La Land: YES CANADA!!
Viggo Mortensen, Captain Fantastic: BOSS!!!
Denzel Washington, Fences: Okay.
I’m sitting here daydreaming Ruth Negga is at an Oscar party and Gwenyth Paltrow takes a pic with her and IG’s it with “she’s my Negga!” And just like that the Goop empire goes up in flames. Bitch is insufferable!
Anyhow, good luck to Viggo and Isabelle.
