Genuinely surprised not to see Jennifer Lopez on there for Hustlers. Slightly less surprised, but no less aggrieved, not to see Lupita Nyong'o on there, who was so good in Us.

Otherwise, Christ, The Irishman, Once Upon A Time... and Joker are overrated. It's not been a banner year for film.

Once Upon A Time now favourite to win Best Picture, seems to be picking up steam. Was my film of the year so be good to see. Also nods that releasing a film in July/August might be a smart way of doing it these days rather than have it lost in the crowd. Parasite I found good, but not as great as people have been going on about, but always good to see a film like this nominated in the main category.

JOKER shouldn't be on that list for me. Its an OK film with a great central performance. No way Phoenix doesn't win this. It's almost like he's getting it because he should have had it for other stuff (a staple of the Oscars)

Adam Sandler absolutely robbed not to be nominated. That was a helluva performance.

That's really not the case. It's obvious that a lot of people (critics and fans alike) really enjoyed his performance in Joker, and I think any awards he's getting are well deserved.

It's not like that year Return of the King got everything just because they felt LOTR deserved a lot, even though it wasn't even the best of the trilogy by a long shot.

I'm not denigrating it at all. As I said, its a really good central performance and I always find him a compelling watch. I just think he's been better in other stuff and deserved it more in other years. This is 'his year' though and I'm pleased.

No massive surprises there. Joker will probably win a bunch that it doesn't really deserve. As long as the greatest living cinematographer Roger Deakins wins, and Knives Out or Parasite gets the screenplay nod I don't care.

I'm looking forward to some good old fashioned fan-boy complaining because Robert Downey Jr didn't get shortlisted for playing Iron Man (edit: which in no way, shape or form does he deserve)
