Cillian Murphy serving cunt at the DGA

I love how people assume The Holdovers will somehow pull off surprise wins despite being a box office turkey.

“The Holdovers” is “Nebraska”. It has grossed the same amount of money as “Nebraska.” It has almost the exact same nominations as “Nebraska” which was in a better position because it got Director plus Cinematography. Bruce Dern did not win for “Nebraska.” The nomination was his award.

The only people who keep insisting it will be Giametti are IMO real old Boomers for whom Christopher Nolan is too contemporary. Some of them probably even think Steven Spielberg is too contemporary.

by Anonymousreply 19February 11, 2024 5:10 PM

He has very feminine looking features - prominent cheekbones, full lips - and his eyes, although a beautiful blue, are large and round, which makes him look a bit menacing.

His overall look is that of a wealthy middle-aged Beverly Hills wife. None of his features on their own would be considered unattractive, but put together, he becomes off-putting.

Didn’t he play a transgender person in a movie?

R31 how is it in the world where Gold Derby has meaning or relevance?

You do understand that Gold Derby is not how Hollywood works right?

The Holdovers is not loved. It will win exactly one Oscar, Supporting Actress. Screenplay is more likely to go to Celine Song, who just won the DGA first film; or Justine Triet & cowriter for Anatomy of a Fall, which got the Best Director nomination. Paul Giamatti could not get a best actor nomination for SIDEWAYS! He is not loved!

There is only one horse race among the acting nominations, and that’s Lead Actress.

The Holdover is a well-made formula picture. The formula has been used over and over again. A Thousand Clowns (Martin Balsalm, Supporting Actor). Paper Moon (Tatum O’Neal, Supporting Actress). The Paper Chase (John Houseman, Supporting Actor.) Good Will Hunting (Robin Williams, Supporting Actor.) Whiplash (JK Simmons, Supporting Actor.) Notice a trend?

No one is going to give Lead Actor to a formula film that’s recycled every ten years. Richard Dreyfuss did not win for Mr Holland’s Opus. And that film was a hit. The Oscar went to Nicolas Cage. Leaving Las Vegas was SERIOUS acting. Oscar almost always goes for SERIOUS over sentimental in Lead. Sentimental is for Supporting Only.

R21, I thought you meant "The Danish Girl," because I had been about to say that Cillian is the Irish version of Eddie Redmayne, in that they're both oddly unattractive gingers who many people seem to think are good-looking. To me they're equally unattractive.

At the risk of being buried in MARYs, I have to say that when I saw Cillian for the first time something inside me came to a full stop for the first time in my life.

If I’d had to translate the sensation into words they’d have been, “That’s it. That’s the face I’ve been looking for all my life.”

While I found him (and most of the cast) to be one note in ‘Oppenheimer’, he’s certainly talented. Isn’t it odd that he’s having this huge career boost and spotlight at such a late stage of his career? He’s almost 50. Nolan, who comes across like an elitist insufferable egoist in most interviews, calls him “the best actor of his generation”. If so, why haven’t we noticed for so long?

by Anonymousreply 44February 13, 2024 4:05 AM

I’m not picky, R43, but if I had to choose I’d say on someone else, with whom I was deeply bound so I could just gaze at him every day and night.

R39, I guess you're right, but I'm not 100% sure about it. Maybe he dyes his hair. He certainly has that pale, lashless look and pink skin of a redhead (to my eye). It looks light/medium auburn in this picture.

Giamatti received a tremendous amount of applause at the Oscar luncheon the other day. Cillian’s was mild at best. RDJ and America Ferrera also got huge hands. Applause at the luncheon has become a way to detect the real enthusiasm around the candidates. The way it seems to be playing out is Giamatti, Ferrera, RDJ, and a three way race between Huller, Stone, and the chick from the DiCrappio movie, who all reportedly got healthy sustained applause. Cillian peaked a month ago, and Giamatti has run away with it. Sorry, OP.

No r53, you only believe Paul Giamatti will win the Oscar, and you think Paul Giamatti's performance was better than Cillian Murphy, because you are stupid. I'm sorry, but you are just stupid. It's obvious from the way you write.

The Academy Award for Best Actor goes to

a) an actor playing a person with an affliction (Brendan Fraser/morbid obesity; Anthony Hopkins/dementia; Eddie Redmayne/ALS; Matthew McConaughey/AIDS; Colin Firth/stuttering; Jeff Bridges/alcoholism; Jamie Foxx/blindness)

b) an actor playing a famous historical figure (Rami Malek/Freddie Mercury; Gary Oldman/Winston Churchill; Eddie Redmayne/Stephen Hawking; Daniel Day Lewis/Abraham Lincoln; Colin Firth/George VI; Sean Penn/Harvey Milk; Forrest Whitaker/Idi Amin; Phillip Seymour Hoffman/Truman Capote; Jamie Foxx/Ray Charles).

those that do not fall into that category tend to be the

c) "very serious drama" winners: Casey Affleck, Manchester by the Sea; Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant; Daniel Day Lewis, There Will Be Blood; Sean Penn, Mystic River; Adrien Brody, The Pianist.

Paul Giamatti falls into none of those categories. Paul Giamatti stars in the genre of comedy-drama film about two mismatched people who come together and learn and grow. The last time this won the Oscar was 1997 when Jack Nicholson won for As Good As It Gets. HOWEVER, Jack Nicholson's character in As Good As It Gets had Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. So that would go under affliction. The previous film about two mismatched people who come together and grow to win the Best Actor Oscar was Al Pacino in Scent of a Woman. BUT, Al Pacino's character was blind. Again, affliction. And notably, Jack Nicholson and Al Pacino were LEGENDS. Their status elevated roles that probably wouldn't have won Oscars if they had gone to actors of Giamatti's stature.

And prior to that, the previous film about two mismatched people who come together and grow to win Best Actor was Rain Man. Again, affliction: autism. And Rain Main was a major box office hit.

You have to go back to [bold]1977[/bold] to find a comedy-drama film about two mismatched people who come together and grow and learn and the man has no affliction win the Best Actor Oscar. That was Richard Dreyfuss in The Goodbye Girl. BUT, Richard Dreyfuss also starred that year in a significant box office hit: Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

So you are telling me, right now, that you believe an actor, who is not particularly famous, who starred in a box office flop, did not star in another acclaimed hit film the same year, and starred in a comedy about two mismatched people who come together and grow and learn with no afflictions; will win over

A very serious drama which was a significant box office hit about a famous historical figure which has 13 Oscar nominations total. An argument could be made that Oppenheimer also portrays someone with Aspergers Syndrome, but that's irrelevant.

Of course you would have realized this, but like I said, you are stupid.

He said, “I don’t do photos. Once I started doing that it changed my life. I just think it’s better to say hello, and have a little conversation. I tell that to a lot of people, you know, actor friends of mine, and they’re just like: I feel so bad. But you don’t need a photo record of everywhere you’ve been in a day.”
