Just so you know, a lot of this is guessing on my part. I haven't seen most of these movies. I've watched 2. 😳

A = 3

@delamitri That makes two of us not watching them all, so i don't want to play because the ones i haven't seen aren't in HD either but the ones i have, have me conflicted.

@R3VENANT I just wanted to drop this down into latest posts because I think a lot of people could have fun with it. Same here, I was conflicted on just the 2 I saw. I haven't watched the Oscars since I was a kid, but I don't ever remember hearing of a superhero movie winning best picture, or I might have chosen Black Panther. If it was up to me, all Marvel and DC movies should have won Oscars, haha. Rock docs and biopics are my second favorite, so I know I would have picked Bohemian Rhapsody even if I'd seen the rest. 😊

@delamitri I relate.
I gave it a like for the same purpose, i consider it a great game although the academy is biased and maybe also a sham(the moonlight envelope fiasco comes to mind)also haven't followed in a while.

Well, we got time to watch and get to a conclusion to choose our winners, hopefully we will get HD copies of the films before the due date.

Of course Black Panther has to win something(i am certain it will win costumes) but not all comic related movies deserve praise.(i would have liked DCs Dark knights by Nolan to have been nominated for anything)

I feel the same with Bohemian Rhapsody..

@R3VENANT You're right that all comic related movies don't deserve praise. I'm just biased like a juvenile. 😉

Dark Knight, heck yeah! 👍 It got 2 of I believe a handful it was nominated for. Heath Ledger for supporting actor was one. The rest were sound and effects stuff.

@delamitri Yeah; you're right forgot the posthumous awards Heath got, feels like an eternity since his passing.

My bad i didn't check before writing it.

I didn't mean they all didn't deserve it just not all of them... And nothing negative to/with it.

@R3VENANT I didn't take it negative at all. 😊 My top 2 votes for undeserving would be The Green Hornet and Green Lantern.

I don't watch the Oscar's because they are too self congratulatory and there are a lot of films that don't even get mentioned and deserve more recognition than the "mainstream" films, but... I'll play anyhow! Lol

The primary reason I chose what I did is that the bulk of the Oscar's always go to political biopics.

Creative films might get a nod, but they probably won't win the big recognition they might deserve.

Just my observation.

@michael59 You're right ... it is a bit confusing as the films have to be screened in 2018 (I think) in cinemas in the USA (thinking again) but the ceremoney and awards have this year on them. Can't really say why.

I have only seen A Star Is Born from the choices on that list. And I didn't think it was as good as the Streisand version, so I wouldn't be voting for it.
So I think I will abstain... for now. Might watch some of the others and come back when I do have an opinion.

So 🤔 without subs i cannot watch "Cold War", that's the only one i am missing from the roster.

Ahi va:

A = 3
B = 4
C = 1
D = 2
E = 1
F = 4

Alternatively i think Willem Dafoe was brilliant and the Direction of the movie was quite fresh and dynamic.

And not featured but for sure Black Panther will win in costumes.

@R3VENANT Probably the most informed vote so far. You are the expert so I may have to "borrow" from your expertise.

Are you making bets?

senior guru

(6d)
@box I don't really do bets and I'm still debating between some options.. specially because they're all different for being mostly Dramas.

You got 2 musicals(only ASIB actually singing and it's a remake), 2 foreign language both in black and white, 1 "period" piece, 1 comic book related blockbuster, 4 of them are Biographical (in a way), only 2 have romance as a focal point (one of them based on a book)(The wife is the opposite of romantic 🙄, i don't know what was The Favourite expected to be)...

The supporting actresses weren't in the slightest outstanding except for comic relief(Emma) but the strong area here is the Director and best actor...

To choose best picture is like giving a gun to a blind man in a fight.(or insert birdbox meme here)

The criteria is too open .. if you go for political or a social statement as some have mentioned before there is only 4 movies representing black people, 2 mental illness/ substance abuse (3 if you count the Cheneys HA!), lgbtq representation in some way is there, classism is there too... It's insane.

@Stan123 Amy Adams is a good choice as I have read she has been nominated 6 times for an Oscar and has yet to win.

Glenn Close goes one better (7) without a win!

I must admit that for me, the Oscars usually serve as a guide of the movies to skip. Quality doesn't go hand in hand with entertainment. Therefore my choices are entirely based on what would have been the most entertaining scenario on an award ceremony:

A = 1 (because superheroes deserve equal rights)
B = 1 (because Lanthimos made me contemplate all the different ways that I could kill myself in Dogtooth)
C = 5 (because Viggo is the underdog)
D = 5 (because I wanna hear that acceptance speech)
E = 5 (because the coin toss said so)
F = 1 (because she was the best Lois Lane)

@Mandale Wonderful. An extremely well considered ballot paper and solid justifiable reasons for each and every one of your choices (except maybe for the coin toss as how do you do a coin toss between 5 - only a quibble).

I had a soft spot for Margot Kidder though.

@box Oh, I know what you mean. I had a crush on her when I was a child. But alas we must evolve with the times and choose the only Lois Lane brave enough to use the term "d**k-measuring" in a Superman movie smiley

The coin toss was between the two Sams…..didn't know any of the others I am afraid

@Skyrena Thanks for stopping by and your honesty. But it isn't really an examination - more like a lottery or an election prediction.

You can make an educated "guess" based on the history of the Oscars and the criteria they use (which is anybody's guess).

Or you could say "Fiddlesticks" and choose a few numbers between 1 and 8 (depending on the category).

Then there are your personal favourites that you have seen/appreciated in other movies.

No viewing necessary nor advisable (in some cases).

Your call. Ciao.
