Oscars so white is so 2016.


Really?? For best foreign language film “The Salesman”? lol … is going to be “Toni Erdmann”… but well… you know… is Hollywood’s biggest night.


I wonder how “Zootopia” could still win after losing to “Kubo” at the BAFTAs? Either one winning would be fine by me.


    Of course it can and most likely will! People are reading way to much into the BAFTA’s. If it was so important why not just cancel everything else and just have the BAFTA’s and the Oscars? I don’t think any Academy voter is going to think- well I’d planned to vote for Zootopia but Kubo won the BAFTA so I’ll have to vote for it now…

At this point it sounds like there was little enthusiasm for “Toni Erdmann” even without the Farhadi political angle. In retrospect, surprising that it even managed a nomination from this largely philistine voting branch.


” Australia’s surprise Best Foreign-Language nominee “Tanna,” an Aboriginal Romeo-and-Juliet romance” what the hell? It’s a film about melanesians in Vanuatu!
