Lots of surprises this year, for me at least as the two most nominated films this year were two of my all time worst movies. The one thing I liked about Banshees was the cinematography and it wasn't even nominated in that category


for me so far Brendan Fraser and Cate Blanchett will be walking away with the Oscar for Best Actor by a male or female in a leading role

I believe Tar has been seen by less viewers than you can fit in a small cupboard, I guess that doesn't mean much to the judges.

Everything, Everywhere was seen by everyone and I guess that didn't matter to the judges. I don't know which was worse, Banshees or Everything, Everywhere

I agree Everything Everywhere is an absolutely horrible movie. The story makes so sense or it is supposed to be like that?

I hate Aronovsky movies so won’t watch it. They make you want to slit your wrists, no thanks.

I really liked Requiem For A Dream due to the performances of Leto, Connelly and Burstyn.

I hated it more than I hated Banshees
It has an 89% by the RT audience so must just be you. It happens. I thought it was modern and brilliant with multiple stories taking place. It was codirected by the Daniels, as they are known. Also made over $100mm.

How on earth did Glass Onion get a screenplay nod? Banshees will win Original Screenplay for sure. Adapted they should just give to Top Gun lol

best picture didn’t deserve 10 noms this year

The movie won't win but for Brendan Fraser this was the role of a life time. He should easily win

My general view is that like all other creative endeavors — poetry, literature, music, painting, etc. — the greatest lies in the past. This age is known for its technology, not for its arts. For the greatest arts and artists, we need to look to the past. We are not going to see another composer like Beethoven or Duke Ellington, another rock group like The Beatles, another painter like Van Gogh, or a film maker like Ingmar Bergman or AkIra Kurosawa. The golden age of the arts lies behind us. For better or worse, we are living in the golden age of technology. As AI takes over creativity, humans will get less creative over time. None of us have needed to know how to compute the square root of a number. Our calculators will do that for us today. Tomorrow AI software will write our poetry, compose our songs, make our movies and write our literature.

I’ve long been a skeptic that AI could surpass human intelligence as a person who has worked in the field a long time. But recent advances have left me worried that our days of being the only species on earth capable of language in its full generality and artistic expressivity are numbered. I didn’t see the unleashing of AI combined with the vast storage and compute power now available. AI systems like chat GPT process more text than a human can read in a 1000 lifetimes. They process millions of technical articles. Billions of lines of code. And these systems are just getting off the ground. In 10 years from now, these systems will be exponentially more powerful than they already are now. I’m not going to survive till 2050, I think, so I wouldn’t know, but certainly the next 10-20 years is going to see a huge reckoning as humans come to understand what technology has unleashed. Most people have no idea how difficult life is going to get. Jobs are going to vanish in many industries as AI systems take over manufacturing, medical diagnosis, education, and the creative arts.

Oscar Prediction time anyone?

Best Picture: Everything Everywhere All at Once
Best Director Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert
Best Actor: Austin Butler
Best Actress: Cate Blanchett

PS. Not necessarily my choices.. "Best" from a sheer entertainment perspective, Top Gun Maverick would be my choice, but Cruise just doesn't get the respect of his colleagues.

I think this is right. Bassett will get supporting actress and the Indy kid, actor :)

Banshees wins orig screenplay.

Fraser won’t win as his movie wasn’t nominated - quire rare. Butler seems to have more momo too.

Butler was my first choice until I saw The Whale. BTW. the sound track (Elvis) is available for streaming and some of the songs are terrific and many of these were sung by Butler. I would not be unhappy to see him win but Fraser was amazing in his role

I've mentioned before that Banshees was my least favorite movie of the year until I saw Everything, Everywhere
