His performance was transformative, and also, he died.
I'm assuming he was referring to the 2019 film, which received a Best Picture nod among many others.
Oh yeah, of course. :)) Thanks for pointing that out.
To think trash like JOKER got a nod and not SKYFALL. Baffling.
Bond will always be too "pulp" I think for the academy. Similarly with Marvel.
I think there was more in Joaquin's performance than contorting his body and looking constipated, but we all take different things from these performances.
It won’t top it, but it’s gonna be scary close…
Yes. Dark Knight is a classic and deserved all awards it got. Joker with Phoenix is a good film but no more deserving of awards attention than nttd imo.
There are no American Voters at the Golden Globes.
The awards are given out by journalists from foreign countries.
OK. My bad. I let my cynicism get the better of me there!
What are you talking about? Phoenix in Joker is absolutely magnificent; any award is completely deserved.
It really was highly appreciated over here in Germany - I can see and hear it everywhere. It may have not been as attractive to - for example - the american audience but for the UK (well - no wonder ... it's a national treasure and rightly so!) as well as Germany (plus more countries in Europe) it was a HUGE hit. Also on Home Media Sales as far as I can say.
That's not what I said fella. Phoenix was great but no better than Dan Craig in NTTD.
Well, I agree they're both awesome in their respective films.

Bond has always been a more internationally appealing series.
Yeah in the US that year SF outgrossed The Hobbit by only $1 million.
The other thing you have to realize is that this is the generation of stick your nose in a screen and shut up for awhile and most people run around like racoons drawn to shiny objects instead of truly appreciating a good story, well developed characters, and a sense of tradition. So when you are pitted against films geared toward children that have been convinced they have ADHD and are likely on some sort of medication, you're not likely to get the same review from a franchise film that has stood the test of time.
actually I'm more annoyed at their "what's the big deal anyway" parents who tend not to teach a minimum amount of respect for things, like traditions, or in this example the movie going experience...I was simply trying to illustrate why there isn't such great reviews on movies these days...but honestly I could care less about some kid's experience as long as we aren't ruining it for each other, especially if I paid money to have the experience...I also just watch movies at home more often now...last time I was in the theater was when Solo was released, thanks to covid and a few other ridiculous things
Out of all my experiences, I can only say I went through one showing that had noisy teenagers. Maybe it’s a regional thing.
