    Man you are making me pumped to see this! You gave Ford V Ferr a higher mark though?
    No. 5/6 for Ford V Ferrari. It was a typo that I quickly corrected.

    Just because she doesn't get nominated doesn't mean she wasn't deserving. Toni Collette was forgotten come Oscar night last year. You can't tell me that wasn't a top 5 female performance of 2018. As Fernando said, I don't see 5 better performances than Pugh so far this year.

    Of course. Her performance in Hereditary is amazing. Really nuanced too. I thought everybody loved her in that.

    I did think she was good but I have to say she was not ignored by the Oscars. They got it right with the noms.

    You're in the minority on that one. Most people think she was snubbed. You prefer the performance of that woman from Roma?

    I preferred the woman in Roma. But I also preferred Toni Colette. Could've done with switching Colette for Gaga or Close.

    Please God no. I can't speak for her talents (never seen her in anything) and I've yet to see The Farewell, but could you imagine seeing the name Awkwafina next to Best Actress in the history books. It's just the dumbest name ever. On the plus side, I know she agrees with the fact it's the dumbest name ever.

    The Farewell in one of my favorites of 2019. Not sure of the placement, but safely in the Top 3. And her performance is a big part of it, she's so great in it.

    Don't nominate a female director just to nominate a female director. That doesn't do anybody any favors. If there is a female director that is deserving, then she should be nominated. That said, there are some pretty heavy-hitting male directors this year.

    Yes, thank you. I'm so tired of hearing of women or minorities being "snubbed." If you're black or white or a woman or a man, you're either going to EARN a nomination because your work is deserving or NOT EARN a nomination, not because of your color, race, gender, etc.

    It's more about more opportunities for everyone, and that's slowly happening. Whether it's reflected in nominations is another topic.

    Ten international films, including widely acclaimed offerings from South Korea, Spain and Senegal, are on the shortlist of movies vying for Academy Award nominations.

    The best international feature shortlist announced Monday by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences includes Bong Joon Ho’s “Parasite,” Pedro Almodovar’s semi-autobiographical “Pain and Glory” and “Atlantics,” Senegal’s entry from history-making director Mati Diop.

    In May, Diop became the first black woman to compete for the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival. That honor went to “Parasite,” while “Atlantics" won the festival's Grand Prix honor. If “Parasite” or “Atlantics" receive nominations, they would mark the first for South Korea and Senegal, respectively.

    It is the first year the Oscar formerly will be awarded under a new name: best international feature film. The category was previously known as the best foreign language film.

    The 10 short-listed films are: the Czech Republic’s “The Painted Bird”; Estonia’s “Truth and Justice”; France’s “Les Misérables”; Hungary’s “Those Who Remained”; North Macedonia’s “Honeyland”; Poland’s “Corpus Christi”; Russia’s “Beanpole”; Senegal’s “Atlantics”; South Korea’s “Parasite” and Spain’s “Pain and Glory.”
