RE: Catching up with CODA

I agree -

The scope of the film is formulaic but if you do the formula exceedingly well then that counts for something. And the actors were actually deaf and I enjoyed the aspect of the daughter singing and the parents kind of looking around at other people's reactions for their cues. I bought into the family dynamic and enjoyed it - if it wins the best picture award I would be quite happy.

Actually, I am happy if they just pick a quality movie - I had no problem with most of the films they picked over the last 2 decades but none of them matched my top pick.

I think the Academy has improved though - I mean Birdman was a rather artsy endeavour and not the standard flick nor was Moonlight and even The Shape of Water was out of the norm - they may not have been my first choice but you can't really say they're standard Hollywood fare.

I would be stunned to see Drive My Car win after Parasite won in 2020.

People were so idiotically outraged that they chose a foreign film for best picture. How dare they have subtitles! LOL.

But you never know - it was nominated after all so it has a chance.
