BAGEL, usually the ever great Jakeem covers this stuff, but i's good you did too!  ARE YOU GOINNA' JOIN-IN & PREDICT THE WINNERS TOO?>-(check out my posts)

 

spence, I'm not too good at predicting Oscar winners. I tend to go with the nominees that I want to win rather than trying guess the ones who are most likely to win. 

I will be surprised, though, if "Shallow" from A Star is Born does not win Best Original Song.

I saw your prediction posts. Is your record of picking the winners of prior Oscars pretty good?

It's typical of those who select the nominees for Best Documentary that they snubbed Three Identical Strangers, a first-rate, well-made film which some members of the general public have actually seen. Instead, it's RBG, which did have a theatrical run, and four lesser-known films. RBG will probably win in a landslide.

I said something similar on another thread a while back. I watched several documentaries from last year in quick succession: ShirkersThree Identical StrangersWon't You Be My Neighbor?, and RBG. I felt that last one was the weakest, so naturally that's the one that got nominated.

I'll have to look for Shirkers. Won't you Be My Neighbor? is another documentary that got fairly good distribution and was favorably reviewed. It has been said that because so few documentaries get wide distribution, the other documentary filmmakers tend to be prejudiced against the more fortunate ones.

Please, Brad. Your first film?

Charles Chaplin, Fritz Lang, Preston Sturges. James Whale and Vittorio De Sica gave us film classics

but they were never Best Director Oscar nominees.

 

Nor were Barbra Streisand and Penny Marshall.

Each woman directed a Best Picture Oscar nominee.

Here's a great video highlighting the Best Original Song Oscar winners from 1934 through 2017.

The video doesn't include the 2018 winner: "Remember Me" [Kristen Anderson-Lopez & Robert Lopez (music & lyrics)] from Coco.

Will "Shallow" [Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando & Andrew Wyatt [music & lyrics]) from A Star Is Born join this list?

Probably because they're still wondering whether that constituted an actual song.

"Remember Me" from Coco wasn't included in the video because it was posted prior to the ceremony where the song was awarded the Oscar.

Oh, wait, are you trying to throw shade?

It's hard to believe that anyone wouldn't like "Remember Me" especially in the context of the movie.

First time I heard Kirsten Lopez's song in the movie, I kept thinking "Why are they singing Frozen songs in Mexico?"   😛

If it was up to my vote, I would have picked something catchier, and more appropriate to the tone of the movie that got less screentime, like "Mi Corazon" at the at the end--But all through the movie, I felt as if studio publicity was dangling a watch in front of critics' and voters' eyes saying "You WILL nominate this for Best Song...It's better than Cats, you'll sing it again and again..."  Only problem was, it was just such a non-song, and being justified with "Well, it's so central to the plot!", that I explained it to one fan with "Imagine if they'd picked Rapunzel's flower-incarnation song as the best song from 'Tangled', rather than 'I See the Light'--Yes, we hear it repeated throughout the movie, and yes, it's 'central to the plot', BUT..."

So, yeah, as "shade" goes, we're talking Total Solar Eclipse, and thoroughly justifiable, too.  😎

(And TBH, you can draw an ethnic line between those who sniffled in raptures of family sentimentality over "Coco", and those who...didn't.  Most white people didn't, but it wasn't altogether a bad movie.)
