Things We Saw Today: Honest Trailers Tackle the Oscars Best Picture Nominations


Thank goodness for Honest Trailers to keep us grounded in the year in which Green BookBohemian Rhapsody, and Vice have all made it to the Best Picture nominations and none for If Beale Street Could Talk. Am I bitter? Yes. It goes without saying that with maybe two exceptions, most people are going to leave the 2019 Oscars disappointed by what didn’t win. Still, at least we can enjoy the jokes until the think pieces begin.

I think my favorite has to be the voice bringing up that people have been waiting for a comic book movie to be recognized for Best Picture and now that one finally is, there is all this backlash as to “if this should be the one.” I loved Logan too and yes, it should have been nominated, but to act as though Black Panther wasn’t a huge hit and well regarded despite the third act is just the epitome of nit-picking. I enjoyed Infinity War as well, but let’s not pretend that is a real movie when it’s part one of two.

Anyway, I’m rooting for The Favourite.

For those who just learned about John Wayne’s old racism, here is a song for you guys.
