Yes.

As a matter of fact it's far harder to play a character like yourself than it is to play your version of someone's creation.

Mendes and Deakins pretty much guarantees it's going to be the best looking movie of the year.

Here's my "When the Academy Awards fucked up":

The Dark Knight (2008) missing out on Best Picture and Best Director nominations. The rightful backlash meant the Best Picture category was expanded. Terrible snub.

The Dark Knight (2008), WALL-E (2008) and Gran Torino (2008) should have received Best Picture nominations in 2009.

The Reader (2008) getting a Best Picture nom. Fuck that.

No Best Actor/Best Director nominations for Gran Torino (2008).

Let the Right One In (2008), no Foreign Language Film nod.

The Academy Awards really fucked up that year as seen in the above.

Christian Bale as Best Actor for American Psycho (2000). Christian Bale's best performance.

Memento (2000) missing out on Best Picture and Best Director nominations.

The Shawshank Redemption should have won Best Picture in 1994 over Forrest Gump which won said award. After Shawshank, Pulp Fiction.

Quentin Tarantino or Frank Darabont should've taken home Best Director that year but that also went to Forrest Gump's Robert Zemeckis.

Ellen Burstyn should have won Best Actress for Requiem for a Dream (2000). Julia Roberts won for Erin Brockovich. That's a bad one.

Ben Affleck not making the Best Director nominees for Argo (2012). That surprised everyone.

R Lee Ermey and Vincent D'Onofrio missing out on Best Supporting Actor nominations for Full Metal Jacket (1987). I'd have voted for Ermey.

Sam Smith winning Best Original Song for "Writing's on the Wall" in Spectre (2015).

No Best Supporting Actor nomination to Javier Bardem in Skyfall (2012).

The Lego Movie (2014) wasn't nominated for Best Animated Feature. Bad omission, that. Should have won it.

Gone Baby Gone deserved a Best Picture nomination in 2007.

Clint Eastwood missing out on the Academy Award for Best Actor in Unforgiven (1992).

Heath Ledger should have won Best Actor for his performance in Brokeback Mountain (2005) over Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s who won for Capote (2005). Either him or Joaquin Phoenix in Walk the Line (2005).

Crash beating Brokeback Mountain for Best Picture in 2005.

City of Stars (La La Land) winning best song over How Far I'll Go (Moana)

You'll Be In My Heart (Tarzan) beating Blame Canada (South Park: Bigger, Longer, & Uncut)

Haven't seen La La Land or Moana. 

Great shout about Blame Canada missing out on Best Original Song. That's terrible. 

You bringing these up reminds me of another, The Star Spangled Man With A Plan from Captain America: The First Avenger (2011) wasn't even nominated for Best Oroginal Song when it was the best that year.

I think those are likely. Rocketman has an outside shot. Joker will probably miss out. Little Women might make it, ditto for Knives Out and Judy.

Best Actor is a loaded field. You'll get people missing out and some trying to get into Best Supporting Actor to better their chances.

I'm predicting now that Roger Deakins takes Best Cinematography. Said it earlier, he should be on 3 or 4.

I agree.  I think Joker should probably be nominated as I feel it's better than a couple of the movies there that I have seen, I cannot speak on the ones I haven't seen.  However,  a nomination for Joker would be a win in itself,  I don't feel it's the best movie I've seen this year.

I hope Joe Pesci wins again for Best Supporting Actor and gives another five words or shorter acceptance speech.

I'm thinking Best Actor will be definitely made up of Phoenix (Joker), Driver (Marriage Story), DiCaprio (One Upon a Time in Hollywood) and Bale (Ford v Ferrari) with a tight scrap for the fifth and last spot. I'm rooting for Egerton (Rocketman).

I got the first three and the other two wrong. Shame seeing Taron Egerton snubbed. That's bad especially when you think Rami Malek won Best Actor last year, Malek mimed unlike Egerton and Malek beat Christian Bale to said award.

I'm in absolute shock Jennifer Lopez wasn't nominated. Easily the best screen performance I saw all year, better than any of the Oscar nominated performances I saw.

Also, Joker getting Actor, Cinematography, and Score makes total sense. Picture I don't really agree with, but it's not way out there. Phillips getting a director nod is just baffling though. That was an absolutely pedestrian job by him

I thought Joker was locks to get Best Actor and Best Original Score nods. I thought it had a good chance for Cinematography and Picture but likely miss out on Picture. Best Director I didn't see coming.

I'm rooting for Joker to get Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Original Score and Cinematography. I'm particularly wanting Joaquin Phoenix and Hildur Guðnadóttir to win. Even those who hate Joker rightly praise those two.

Once again, all five directors are men. Despite widely praised work from Greta Gerwig, Lulu Wang, and Lorene Scafaria, just off the top of my head.

If Joker wins bp the year after Green Book, we might as well just stop having Oscars, because they would be completely meaningless.

It's between Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, 1917, Marriage Story and Parasite for Best Picture. Joker's nomination is the win.
