    I usually try to watch all the best pic nominees in the month before the awards are given. Doesn’t look like it will happen this year. I tried to watch Joker and Irishman, but got bored with each after 30 minutes or so and turned them off. Not sure I need to see another Little Women. I’ll give Once Upon A Time a look. 1917 seems to be the film I’d like the most. We’ll see.

    I saw ford v ferrari and the manson movie with brad pitt.. I liked both of them... probs the manson movie more than ford v ferrari... but I thought Joker was a really good movie... I guess I'd pick it above the other two... want to see parasite... not so much with the irishman... but, probably will.

    Keep it down, guys. I'm watching Marriage Story with my wife on netflix right now. Much to my surprise, it's hilarious. I'll check back with you later...

    Just as with the Grammys the nominations often go to the most popular films, not necessarily the most deserving. The Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, and Tonys all stopped being relevant many years ago IMO.

    I am hoping JoJo Rabbit takes it. A moving and funny film.

    I think Once Upon a Time in Hollywood may take it because Hollywood loves movies about itself. I really enjoyed the film, but it lacked the emotional impact a Hitler youths coming to terms with being on the losing side.

    Little Women, to my surprise, held my attention and may take as Hollywood works it way through Me, Too and the Weinstein trial(s).

    I just got back from watching 1917... wow... I'll be surprised if it doesn't get best picture.

    I kind of want to see this one, but also don’t. I found Dunkirk tedious and was afraid 1917 was from the same mold.

    I'm a bit Jaded by all of the endless Award shows.

    Back in the Late 70's I thought the Search For Noah's Ark was a shoo-in.
    not so.
    it wasn't even Nominated.

    I have been forever disillusioned by that life-changing event.

    IMHO, Joker was very good until it went off the rails... I'd say after the park bathroom scene and surely by the talk show scenes.

    That just came out this year. I saw it tonight. Not the strongest storyline but mesmerizing cinematography. One thumb up.

    Awards shows are just industry folks slapping themselves on the back. That's bad enough, they then show off how wealthy they are over the course of like 3 hours. I'd rather watch a blank screen.

    Joker is very good. I watched it in Oct and decided to watch it again this week since it was released digital to see if I felt the same way. I still like it but it does leave me with this weird, creepy, uncomfortable feeling like maybe I should feel strange that I do like it. I didn't feel that with the build up to the Oct release and didn't feel that way after seeing it in Oct. It was only the 2nd time that I went to watch it that I felt that way. One of those things hard to put into words.

    I probably will go years and not watch it or maybe never at all. Maybe that is what they were actually shooting for. I could go into a much more in depth review.

    One thing that I really do like was the ties to our current climate and how things build and then spark out of no where. Can't say much more because of the no politics rule.
