@LiddyRules has claimed that 2018 is the best year for movies since the last good year for movies. He listed a bunch of movies in some thread that I couldn't bookmark because we can't do that anymore I guess. Aside from Blackkkkkkkklansman, I don't seem to recall him listing any of these movies:

https://variety.com/2018/film/news/golden-globe-nominations-2019-1203082075/

Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy
“Crazy Rich Asians”
“The Favourite”
“Green Book”
“Mary Poppins Returns”
“Vice”

Best Motion Picture – Drama
“Black Panther”
“BlacKkKlansman”
“Bohemian Rhapsody”
“If Beale Streat Could Talk”
“A Star Is Born”

Ok, I have questions - Why are Bohemian Rhapsody and A Star is Born not listed as Musicals, but Green Book is?

Also, cue the outrage for Black Panther getting three nominations. It should have been more! It should have been less! Who cares?

Mary Poppins isn't even out yet, how is it a nominee?

Since BP and BK are both nominated, the votes will likely get split. Should have just went with one of the two.

Whether he liked it or not is irrelevant. What's important is that as a white person he can now speak on behalf of black people about how they feel about movies. That's the gift Black Panther provided all of us.

Was this a famous Piggy/Liddy fight?

I found the movie patronizing to black people. Does that put me on one side or the other?

Please tell me you aren't referring to Michael B Jordan's character? Because it's one of the worst performances I've seen in a while.
Not the performance as much as the villain's motivations and back story.

But I thought his performance was "fine".

I don't think @Pigdango and I fought about it. I thought it was fine, whatever. I'd put it below Rags, Fin, and Home. I think he was more critical of it than I was.

I'm more mocking everyone else. How Black Panther seemed to give hipster white people carte blanche to talk about how important it was and how groundbreaking it was for black people, but I feel that white people shouldn't talk about the black experience. Especially not based on a stupid comic book movie.

I wouldn't speak for black people but if I was black, I would not have been happy with how condescending it was.

I don’t know. I got really distracted during the third act when it suddenly dawned on me they were making an almost shot for shot remake of The Phantom Menace. I think until that point it was ok. But when I’m watching your black empowerment movie thinking of Jar Jar Binks...

That was last fucking year. How about you look at a fucking calendar you fuck.
I though maybe it had missed a cutoff. Anyway, I hope it was realized that I was just trying to pointy stick the thread (yeah, I failed miserably.)

Vice isn't out yet either.

No love for Blindspotting? That was better than KkKlansman (the only nominee I've seen), and it seems at least like an awards bait theme even without beating you over the head about it.

Looking over the full list of nominations, the only one I'm interested in is Isle of Dogs beating Incredibles 2 even though I thought Incredibles 2 was fine.

And the screwy thing is - if not for musical or comedy (where you can throw in whatever with a single song and get nominated, I think The Greatest Showman was nominated last year), it's hard to imagine Bohemian Rhapsody getting nominated even in a worse year. I checked and Ray and Walk The Line were both nominated as Best Musical/Comedy. If they wanted to honor gays in the drama category, why this and not Gay Camp? It's peculiar. Damned peculiar.
Isle of dogs has no chance of beating Incredibles 2, but it doesn’t really matter because spider verse is going to beat both of them.

Also, musical biopic Bohemian Rhapsody won best picture, drama?!?! Green Book won best picture, musical. I’ve seen neither, but Rhapsody looked poo to me. Lady Gaga lost and I guess the internet is upset about it.

Roma nabbed Netflix it’s first two major awards, for best director and best foreign language film.
