Generally it's a pretty good batch of nominations? Lots of things I love in the mix -- it's a year where my favorite movie of the year (Jane Campion's The Power of the Dog) is also the frontrunner for Best Picture, and that lines up so rarely it should be noted. Very happy for everybody involved with that movie nommed -- Dunst! Plemons! Kodi! (Just hope the two Supporting Actors don't cross each other out because this should be Kodi's statue -- he gave my fave perf of the year as well.) Jonny Greenwood! Ari f'ing Wegner!

Also super happy that Kristen Stewart made it in as I am a big Spencer lover. Looking at the Best Picture line-up there are only two movies in it that would make my Top 10, I think -- that'd be the aforementioned Power of the Dog and probably Licorice Pizza? If you can't tell I haven't even thought about my Top 10 for 2021 yet, haha -- this is how serious I am about awards turning me off these days. I don't even want to think about ranking my own favorites anymore. Other BP nominees -- I like West Side Story and Nightmare Alley and Dune and Drive My Car. Belfast and Don't Look Up are middlingly okay. I couldn't stand King Richard or CODA. (Ugh CODA. By far my least favorite. Smarm personified.) They do adore their mediocrity most of the time. Super irritated that room wasn't made for movies like The Green Knight, The French Dispatch, Zola, Red Rocket, C'mon C'mon, Spencer (the techs ignoring this movie is criminal), Titane and a dozen more. But sure what JK Simmons did in Being the Ricardos deserved a spot! Sure okay whatever, Oscars. You do you...
