91st Academy Awards

Post by Mafwanix » Sat Jan 12, 2019 2:08 pm

They have not even announced the nominations for this year's Oscars, yet for the past few weeks there has already been controversy surrounding this year's award show.

Comedian and actor Kevin Hart, a pretty funny guy, was asked to be host. But a humorless section of the social media crowd hounded the academy over old jokes he told in a comedy routine years ago and basically forced him out. Now, thanks to these same trolls, nobody wants the job. The academy is actually considering having no host for their show for the first time in decades.

As a bit of a film fan, I like to use the academy's nominations as a guide to find some enjoyable new films to watch. But this year, I'm thinking of giving the awards show a pass. I don't feel like listening to a bunch of out of touch make believe play actors pontificate how regular film fans like myself are responsible for all the world's social ills. Plus you know it will include non stop Trump bashing, as if we don't hear this every single day already.

The only part I will miss to see is the retrospect they do about film people who died in the last year.

This year's awards will be on 24 February 2019.

The only two films I've seen are BlackKklansman and Black Panther. I didn't think either one of them really deserved an Oscar, not bad films, just not standoutish enough in my opinion.

As for the rest of the nominations, Bohemian Rapsody is probably the only film I have any interest in seeing. I'm even skeptical of that one since I'm not really a big of a fan of Queen, more just a fan of Rami Malek from his excellent work on Mr. Robot.

I never watch the show anyway, but usually I enjoy watching all the nominated films, given that they are supposed to be good. The last couple of years I haven't even been able to do that... The nominations all seem mundane, just a bunch of actors putting on these hammed up performances and trying way too hard to win the Oscar.
