    His monologue was aight.

    The ceremony is force-feeding the #metoo momentum into every moment which is understandable. Yet slightly cringey.

    After Oprah's speech, Ron Howard and Portman come out to give best director...Portman says "here are the all male nominees"

    Not right before a director is going to win an award.... she was taking away from their moment.

    A courageous thing to do would have been to speak up about it before it became the cool thing to say.

    Yup.

    Queen Meryl wants people to get off her back about Harvey and what she knew because she wants Melania to speak up, as that is much more important.:rolleyes: What a champion!

    Well, she clearly has, you just didn’t care enough then. Google “Natalie Portman gender equality” or “Natalie Portman female directors”.

    Yeah, not enough though, should've won best comedy.

    Not sure how the feck Big Little Lies keeps winning all these awards, it was such an average show. Seems domestic violence + big name actresses = automatic awards.

    Bizarre IMO. Giving him an ovation .. really? Talk about celebrating mediocre men.
    Also very on point for Hollywood to create such a show and tell about a problem they created in the first place and suppressed the news around it. Even for the female actors, better not to celebrate in the phonyness of the awards circuit if you want to make a point against the culture in Hollywood. #OscarsSWhite controversy already established the lack of diversity in the nominations and winners, whatever one's takeaway from it may be.

    Think it was ill timed and other than increasing the amount of nominees not much that could be done. Dunkirk, Shape of Water, I’ve seen and are good. Three billboards is supposed to be amazing. Haven’t seen the post or all the money in the world so can’t comment.

    However Lady bird directed by Greta Gerwig is awesome and should have had a nomination. I would actually say Patty Jenkins deserved a nod for Wonder Woman also. Just really bad timing by her, making a meal out of something.

    Franco receiving his award was sort of unintentionally hilarious...Tommy comes up onstage, Franco then pretty much barricades him from going anywhere near the mic...and then rips the piss out of him. Cue camera cutting to Greg Sestero who looks incredibly miserable about the whole thing as Franco thanks pretty much everyone involved but Greg Sestero.

    Agree, I got to see it early (doesn't get released till Feb in England) and thought it was fantastic. Odd that is won best picture and she wasn't even nominated. Kind of backs up Portmans comment, guess I'm in minority but liked the comment. I think Greta Gerwig should have been nominated not just because she deserved it but you'd think the problem Hollywood has with lack of female and none white directors you'd think her nomination was a given. Then you look at the 5 nominations 2 of them are Ridley Scott and Steven Spielberg. The Post and All the money in the world are fine but clearly just nominated for name sake. Glad Del Torro won though.

    I like Franco but hearing him in interviews he comes across a bit douchey... pretentious even?

    Definitely a bit. Felt like he used getting the award itself to basically thank all his mates while talking about how great they all were. Wiseau might be a complete melt but it felt like he was up on stage so a successful actor could just rip the piss out of him in a semi-tactful way.

    And a mediocre film. A poor mans Ed Wood or Bowfinger that's somehow been elevated to Award worthy by the very same myopic giggling cult of Hollywood that made it in the first place, all so they could play dress up and laugh at an in-joke that's been dated for a while. Pointless.

    Seems all round a-list nice guy Hugh Jackman didn't like the batshit insane James Franco winning...like twice a year I look at Franco on wiki, and he seems to have like 10 new additions to his credits. How does he do much so (genuine) shite.

    Like the past 5 years all I can name from him is The Deuce, this, Why Him and that 1963 show - he's legit nuts. Doesn't he have like 8 degrees or some shit too.

    Yeah, one downside of Franco's current success might be that he'll use the momentum to keep pumping out more crap, half-arsed movies based on his heroes works (Bukowski, Faulkner, Steinbeck and so forth).

    That list included Guillermo Del Toro, Chris Nolan, Ridley Scott and Steven Speilberg. None of these guys are a one movie wonder.

    He is eccentric. This guy is intelligent and talented on another level. These smart, eccentric people usually come across like that.

    For as much as Franco's acceptance speech was maybe a bit twattish I do think he was fairly deserving of the award insofar as he gave a very good performance as Wiseau. Haven't seen Jackman's though so can't compare.

    Suspect Oldman will walk to the Oscar with the drama/comedy categories merged.

    I'm not sure what your point is. That their past history makes them worthier nominees than the director of the film that got best picture and lead actress nods? Hollywood is notoriously difficult for female directors to crack when it shouldn't be, which is pretty much the point Portman was making.

    Glad Del Toro won anyway, I'm still gutted we didn't get to see his take on the Hobbit rather than Jackson's attempt to redo the Rings.

    Wonder if there'll be any backlash to the comments that were publicised earlier...

    Erm.. no! Dunkirk, The Shape of Water and The Post were all really good movies. They were all worthy nominees. Havent seen Ridley Scott's movie yet but I heard The Three Billboards movie was also very good.

    He's directed over 30 films already. The man does not need encouragement. He needs to be beaten down, again and again, until he stops.

    Same reason Jackman was nominated. The HFPA loves having the big names there.
