    Haven't seen all the best picture noms but I liked Minari, Judas, Mank, Metal. I'd prob choose Minari or Judas out of the ones I've seen (not necessarily to win, just in terms of my favs). As long as Trial of the Chicago 7 doesn't win I'm good lol.

    I haven't seen any of the best doc noms but I'm gonna plug Feels Good Man as one of my favorite docs/things I saw from the past year or so.

    I don't think anyone really cares about the actual awards that much, it's just a fun thing to try to guess like March Madness brackets or electoral map predictions.

    thats true -- but id also suggest awards have been a huge part of , for instance, online gay culture. the pageantry, the politics and competition etc.the history. its silly, but ik so many communities that loveeee the horse race as u said

    Mank had a lot going for it—great director, great musician, an interesting historical time period for both Hollywood and America in general—but was still underwhelming. It’s one I def wanna revisit down the line cuz I could see it growing on me. Liked it but didn’t love it.

    Boring movies Nomadland and Mank about to win everything.

    I liked Judas & the black Messiah, The Father, Promising Young Woman and Minari. In that order.
