It’s a snobby way of thinking, but no Avenger’s movie has been good enough for an Oscar.

I'd point out that back in the day, it was westerns that were considered gauche and not worthy of our admiration, and it took the French New Wave to revive the reputations of guys like John Ford, who is now widely regarded as a master. Get over yourselves.



They have been bad a recognizing good films forever now.

Alfred Hitchcock NEVER won a best director award. I mean how is that possible. They gave him a courtesy lifetime achievement award bc they realized how stupid they were and even he knew it was just a courtesy given that his acceptance speech was one sentence long.

Doesn’t the voter realize that those “money grab” movies help the studios finance the ones that they typically do vote for.

John Ford holds the record for most Best Director wins with 4. His reputation was just fine with his contemporaries. He was nominated for director for one of his Westerns, but didn't win.

The academy member quoted in the op is an idiot, not because he won't vote for Avengers movies which have yet to be good enough for consideration, but because he publicly said this out loud. Why make people mad, dude?

And yes, I know that several Marvel movies are better than what is often nominated and wins. I don't love Black Panther, but I sure as hell like it more than Green Book. Many of the "respectable" movies are money grabs; they just aren't making money on the same scale as the MCU.

Like all leftist elites they have no respect for the American people's opinion. Anything the public likes or supports must be beneath their contempt.

That’s fine to say one hasn’t yet but to say you’ll immediately dismiss any with that in the title seems awfully close minded

It definitely should’ve gotten something. The fact that Black Panther was nominated for literally anything over IW was a joke.

Is there a reason you capitalized every word in the title?

All I can say is that that Avengers movie doesn't deserve any major Oscar.

Maybe because they all knew he was a rapist.

The Oscars are a money grab, by design. They exist to market movies that don't necessarily get the exposure of major releases, or that they just want to get more hype for. This is why they went from 5 BP nominees to 27 or whatever it is.

Of course, there's voting involved, so all kinds of random things happen, but that's the main objective.

Get out with that crap. I'm guessing this is based off a 110 year old senile tippi hedren saying he tried to grab her boob?

also probably wouldn't ever vote a tentpole action movie for a top award.



But why not? Infinity War was incredibly well done. It took every bit as much talent and effort to make as any other Oscar movie. Top notch in every way. No, it didn’t have a woman fricking a fish monster but it was a great movie.

And there's nothing cheap about the Avengers. Our old language of "B movies" is tremendously outdated. And genre films can be every bit as good as anything else. To write off a genre is a problem with the reviewer/voter, not the film. It is an outdated, blinkered way of thinking.

I meant cheap in the sense of being not high quality. And I don't think he's necessarily writing off the entire genre of superhero movies; I think he's writing off the franchise that is The Avengers.

Really?

In the grand scheme of things, I don't care. He was genuinely a possessive weirdo when it came to actresses, something Tarantino has patterned his own self-styling after, and films like Rebecca don't give me the impression that he thinks highly of women.

But his films being overlooked only underscores the frailty of the Oscars. As recent activism has shown, they have more to do with backchannel schmoozing and political placation.

Oscars are a bunch of hipster liberals just trying to act like they’re cool for liking something “different” and “sophisticated” in between bending over to sniff their own farts
