  1. La La Land should not be nominated 14 times and SHOULD NOT win for best picture. I think Lion should win, it’s a great story and the movie was well done. Of course a movie such as Lion or Moonlight that are based on true stories shouldn’t steal the show.
    NOT INTERESTED ON WATCHING THE OSCARS THIS YEAR! Amy Adams should have been nominated!

  2. Conrad Smit says:

    Having watched all of the Oscar-nominated movies, I fail to see why La-La Land and Manchester by the sea are being so hyped. There is no way that Casey Affleck comes anywhere near to Denzel in acting. Furthermore, calling Mel Gibson a “shock inclusion” is, in fact, shocking to me. In my opinion, Hacksaw Ridge could even win Best Director.

  3. Lan says:

    Where is Your Name?

  4. La mejor Actriz de Natalie Portman ,,, Las peliculas JACKIE….. epero que gane …

  5. andre says:

    silence isn’t perfect but neither is hidden figures. silence should’ve been nominated. half those best pic nods can’t hold a candle to the craft of silence.

    • Sal U. Lloyd says:

      Yes, too bad SILENCE was silenced at the box office.
      HIDDEN FIGURES took an important subject and turned it into fluff!

  6. andre says:

    la la land is good stuff no question, still overrated. chicago and moulin rouge were superior in every musical way.

  7. andre says:

    best supporting actress is the most exciting category, an actually competitive category. viggo mortensen will not win but should win, how is this not obvious?

  8. andre says:

    andrew garfield is way more interesting in silence

  9. andre says:

    fantastic beasts should be in visual effects

  10. andre says:

    where is handmaiden???????????????????????????????????????

  11. where is Your Name(Kimi no Na wa)???!

  12. I cannot believe “Hidden Figures” didn’t get one nomination in the best soundtrack/musical score/song. Not that talk thru “La La Land” off key crap.

  13. Delores Ziga says:

    i wont watch..you used to watch to be entertained..now these actors think we watch to hear their hatred and political bull..people will wake up and stop watching..i bet this is the lowest rated oscars..people need to boycott and let actors know we watch to be ebtertained..not to be preached to

  14. Raymond Pique says:

    After all the screaming last year about ” The Oscars are not black enough ” guess I shouldn’t be surprised! Silence totally snubbed except for Cinematography,WHAT! Guess the Industry just doesn’t get it! Thus the reason I no longer watch these Award shows…..has turned into a Politically correct waste of time!

    • Sal U. Lloyd says:

      Actually that was after the 2014 films, not last year. SELMA was nominated for best pix and ONLY one other nom, that for original song!!! Huh????? David Oyelowo was criminally snubbed. Had he been nominated, Jaded-Picky-Smith would have kept her mouth shut! So now they give the best pix to a movie about a possible black gay guy!!! That way they figure the satiate the BLM and GLAAD!!! How stupid!!!

  15. Arrival only got 7 nominations. That seems unfair.

  16. Donna says:

    “LaLa Land” is a Hollywood movie so it has members’ support but en totale it is an amateurish attempt at bringing back the old musicals. There are far better nominated choices in acting and production but good luck!

  17. Valerie says:

    La La Land. 14 nominations. Is a JOKE. I cant.

    • Sal U. Lloyd says:

      I know, they can’t even sing or dance!

      • Floy Joy says:

        So agree. The dancing looked really forced and Emma Stone has such an off-putting high/squeaky voice. Ryan Gosling tended to whisper-sing the songs which was not bad but not great either.On the whole it was a better idea than the finished result. Not worthy of Oscars.

  18. IMO says:

    No nomination for Amy Adams for Arrival, but 8 noms for the movie? Wut! – The whole damn movie is formed around her and she backs that performance up with another Oscar worthy run in Nocturnal Animals while Meryl Streep gets nominated for that flop Florence Whatever backed up by that bigger flop fiasco Ricki and the Flash? Wut!

    Kudos to more diverse noms this year, but you really blew it with no nom for Amy Adams.

  19. SS980403 says:

    Forever disappointed in the nominalizations for Best foreign language film. Maybe I’m missing something, but I can’t get it. There were a lot of astonishing Asian films last year, I am especially impressed by the Korean cinema. The Wailing and The Handmaiden had so much depth, it takes your breath away.

    • Sal U. Lloyd says:

      SS980403, you have to remember, countries may only submit ONE film, as per Academy rules. Sometimes a foreign film can be released that is critically well received, but that may not be the one that its country submits. Also I don’t understand the Academy overlooking Chile’s NERUDA which received a GG nom.

    • A. Greed says:

      I agree, but Don’t worry, – China is starting to really work Hollywood through the only door that really counts, – the bank door. – Get ready to see more noms for their co-productions soon, and then other Asian films from places like Korea & Japan will start showing up as camouflage to cover what is really going on.

  20. Not really interested in this year’s Oscars. Not by a long shot.

    • Mee Too says:

      Me too. – I thought La La Land was lame. – I appreciate their effort, but as far as a monster smash like Titanic? – I don’t think the public thinks that is either, just look at the box office numbers.

      It is fine for different type of movie than we typically get & I am sorry, but Moonlight & Manchester by the Sea just felt Senior Thesis Student Films – Great for what they are, but not great overall. – Sorry:(

      • Claire says:

        You can’t use box office as a measure of if something is Oscar worthy. Plenty of incredible films don’t do well in the box office.

  21. Stephanie says:

    What the heck?! How did Heathens not get nominated for Best Song? It was one of Billboard’s Top Songs of 2016 and has been nominated for several 2016/7 Grammys and was one of the best songs on the Suicide Squad soundtrack! Twenty One Pilots were snubbed. As was Amy Adams! Get rid of that Isabelle lady – no one has heard of her and her performance was mediocre.

  22. Please explain to me why A Monster Calls was nominated for nothing! No Oscars! An incredible movie that doesn’t have any nominations!

  23. Bob says:

    How did Hell or High Water get a nomination for original screenplay when it was so unoriginal. Bank Robber brothers rob a bank and fight the system while two rangers go after them. So original eh?? NOT!!! It was just okay. Meanwhile, how did they snub Amy Adams, i would say, get rid of Meryl Streep(She was fine in that florence movie but not that amazing), yeah, the golden globe speech did help the cause.

    • Heather R says:

      That’s not what they mean by original. It means that someone wrote the story and it wasn’t adapted from a book or play. I’m disagreeing with you, just clarifying what the category means.

  24. Lou says:

    I rarely say something got snubbed. But this time I’m a little baffled about the love for Hell or High Water. It was… Fine. Just… Okay. No big deal. But Loving was terrific. So glad Ruth Negga got recognized, but woulda rather seen the movie in mix for best pic instead of Hell or High Water.

  25. Dale Cannon says:

    Glad Isabelle Huppert finally got her first nomination. Despite a big fan I am afraid she won’t win the Oscar but I am glad she came this far. Still hoping she’ll pull an upset. Puzzled that “The Handmaiden” did not get production design nod, or The Dressmaker not getting a nomination for Best Costume. Where’s Ralph Fiennes, Hugh Grant, Annette Bening in the list?

  26. Cow Girl Diva says:

    What about Deadpool..?

    • Bob says:

      BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!! Are you serious?? I will tell you why, because it sucked. It was a generic and not that funny R-Rated comedy targeted for 15 year olds who have never seen R-Rated comedy in their life and still finds swearing and d!ck jokes cool.

  27. JE Vizzusi says:

    If Mel Gibson wins Best Director, I’m jumping off my nearby pier! I realized we are all LA LA Land unbiased Filmsters but I can never forgive this dude for his anti-Jewish drunked up comments. Back in the day Joe McCarthy would of paraded him in front of Congress as a hero! I guess officially we now can say the Academy will Nominate anybody. @JEV1A

    • jedi77 says:

      I guess officially we now can say the Academy will nominate talent, wherever it is, and whoever it is.
      And that shows both courage under fire as well as integrity.

      That being said, if they had nominated Nate “I am not sorry I am a rapist” Parker, I would’ve been incredibly upset. So apparently I am a hypocrite.
      But in my defense, Gibson only had harsh words, no actions. Who cares what’s in an artists heart, it’s his actions that matter. Nate Parker had actions which eventually resulted in a young woman taking her own life. So I do see a difference there, however small it is.

    • Bob says:

      YAY!! Enough of the PC bullshit already mate. The directors are nominated based on their movies, not on their anti jewish views or public behaviour. And you should check out Hacksaw Ridge too.

      • Mark says:

        What’s “pc” about Attempted Murder? That’s what mel gibson did that was most troubling–attempting to murder families and children on a day at the beach while driving sh*t faced drunk on the PCH.

  28. rider2016 says:

    I must be the only person who didn’t love LA LA Land… it was an adolescent effort at story and the singing and dancing would have gotten Debbie Reynolds and Gene Kelly fired from Singing in the Rain. While I love the sentiment of a feel good attempt to revive the artist’s commitment to the dream, Chazellle….Spare me your youthful optimism!

    Whiplash was much stronger in structure and arc. I never get why these two people love each other and then overnight they are both successes? The only thing this film did to bolster the merit of hanging in there until you make it, is prove that just like Chazelle himself, only a little talent but a lot of luck are necessary to win the Hollywood Lottery. PULEEEZ! Emperor’s new clothe’s anyone?

    • Yep says:

      You’re not alone… I really don’t get it either. And TWO songs. For a musical, sadly, I couldn’t even remember a single tune an hour afterwards. It was fun. Nice to look at. But pure confection. No real story, no depth of character. They’re dreamers because…. They dream? That was as far as it went.

      • Claire says:

        They were not overnight successes, that was kind of the point. They skip 5 years, and a lot happens. She was obviously picked up for the film in paris, and like many actors today, one great film can lead in instant success. He made money from being a part of a band that already existed and had a fan base and then used that money to buy and build up his club. Yeah the singing and dancing wasn’t great (by the leads, I think the supporting dancers and singers were great), but the point was to have in authentic and not with replacement singing or anything like that. I don’t think they necessarily deserved so many nominations but especially Emma Stone and Damien earned this one.

  29. Nathan says:

    Amy Adams gave the most powerful performance of the year, in my opinion. “Arrival” would never ha
    ve, well, arrived without her. For that I thank her in the name of fandom.

  30. Lilly says:

    yesss I knew Kubo and Deepwater Horizon would get visual effects nominations instead of fantastic beasts and arrival!!!

    • Mark says:

      But that cartoon kubo was pretty bad as a movie–even if it was only for kids. It failed at the most important special effect of all: making audiences care.

  31. Horatio says:

    Not one nomination for “Silence”? Wow. The personal-faith-movies from Scorsese do not really connect with the Academy (Note: I still have to check it out myself, but was expecting some love for it, as it is from Scorsese).
