FWIW, MI has never won the award. I think @HelenaExMachina is right and that it is probably a reaction to Cruise pushing the boundaries due to making it a part of his brand.  If it weren't for that, maybe it would have won. But once you take out MI, BP was the most coherent and expansive stunt work among the remaining nominees. Stunt ensemble is about the stunt team, not about the CGI.

Yeah I certainly wouldn't give the stunt award to any of the other nominees. Kind of bizarre that they are even nominated.

Managed to watch Green Book finally. I really enjoyed it, maybe more than any of the other Oscar noms this year. I guess it was a bit more of a crowd pleaser. 

But I will say that I will totally give the lead actor award to Mahershala Ali.. the problem being that he's up for supporting actor. Pretty hard to say who is the lead in that movie, but Ali was fantastic in it, everything about his performance is subtle and incredibly well observed. Viggo is great too, but it rolls over into caricature a little bit and while that is enjoyable to watch, Ali was just brilliant

And the Academy is getting some bad press again. The awards for cinematography, editing, makeup, and live-action short will not be presented live. They'll still be there, just during commercial breaks, so you need to go online to find out who got them.

Some people are upset, and I'll agree that cinematography and editing shouldn't be treated this way.

"Out of the frying pan, into the fire" is what's happening to Academy these days.

The entire issue with the Oscars, ratings of telecast, entire host conundrum... This should end... I always like this time of the year, movie wise, but this is getting really, really UGLY.

While he apparently received a special award in 2002, that's Spike Lee's first BAFTA.  Don't know how I'd feel if Lee got his first Oscar in large part as a reaction to Trump (he should have gotten at least a couple for Do The Right Thing and Malcolm X).

SCREEN ACTORS GUILD AWARDS

 

Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture:
A Star Is Born
WINNER: Black Panther 
BlacKkKlansman 
Bohemian Rhapsody 
Crazy Rich Asians

 

I don't disagree with that result. But damn was there no other movie that could be nominated in place of Crazy Rich Asians? IMO the movie was just OK, so there must have been some other ensemble cast movies that were better. I would say Infinity War was better as an ensemble cast movie than CRA (better than BP too IMO), after all it did a helluva job juggling all those personalities and giving each one decent service.

Also, in terms of turning in a collective acting performance I like BKkK more. In fact I liked BKkK more than Black panther in pretty much every way that matters for a movie. So in any head to head match up between BP and BKkK my vote would go to BKkK. BKkK made me love Adam Driver, because I fricken hate him in Star Wars (though to be fair, it's not him that I hate, but rather what Star Wars makes him do, I guess I actually think he's done the best job that could be done in that situation, he was just served a shit sandwich).

Bohemian Rhapsody is a British film?

It looks like it's a mix, with American and British companies involved.

On a side note, doing a Google search of "Bohemian Rhapsody" brings up mainly results of the movie, you have to go way down to find references to the song. ffs!

That should normalise, back to the song / the band being top of the search lists, with a bit of time

You could argue the case of him getting awards because of the political situation right now if BKkK wasn't really a worthy film. But it's a damned good film and deserves whatever awards it gets on its own merits. I'd be more inclined to say that Black Panther is benefiting from the political mood by being nominated in categories it has no business being nominated in, esp, but not only, best picture Oscar.

Oh I didn't mean to suggest he wouldn't deserve it.  While I haven't seen it, from all reviews I've read it sounds like he/it's deserving.  Just saying it's unfortunate that him finally winning could be marred by people saying the award was in part due to the political environment, which probably would have some validity to it.

What has happened to the Oscars, this is now the 2nd or 3rd time they roll out something new, it gets a ton of backlash, and then they shelve it.  Of course the idea that cinematography and editing categories would have been given out during commercials or otherwise cut down is nutty to begin with, so I wonder, who is in charge that they thought this was a good idea?
