2020 Oscar Nominations: See The Full List of People Who Will Lose to Quentin Tarantino

The Oscars are less than a month away and if you’ve been waiting for a comic book movie to clean up at the Oscar nominations, today is your lucky day because Joker is the most-nominated film with nods coming in 11 categories. What’s that, Marvel stans? This isn’t what you meant when you said comic book movies deserve to be taken seriously? Well, Avengers: Endgame got nominated for Best VFX, so you’ve got that.

A lot of people are mad specifically about Joker being nominated for Best Picture over Booksmart, but having seen both movies, those people are idiots. Booksmart is just American Pie without the pie. I mean, it’s fine, but there’s nothing new or groundbreaking in this movie compared and we’ve seen it dozens of times, from Porky’s to Can’t Hardly Wait to Superbad.

But really, who cares who the nominees for Best Picture and Best Director are anyway, you’re just arguing about whose name you’re going to hear before Quentin Tarantino wins. Yes, that’s right, your official Blemish prediction is that is finally QT’s year and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is the film that’s going to get Tarantino the Oscars he’s deserved since Pulp Fiction. It got 10 nominations, and I can see it winning basically all of them except Best Actor, which Joaquin Phoenix should be clearing space on his mantle for.

It’s important to remember that the Academy is not infallible. For example, Forrest Gump beat Pulp Fiction for best picture in 1994. I realize we all had some weird form of brain damage in 1994 that made us think Forrest Gump was a good movie, but still, did anyone ever really think it was better than Pulp Fiction? Or even The Shawshank Redemption, for that matter? But that aside I can assure you that Joker deserves to be nominated more than whatever movie you’re mad about that isn’t Uncut Gems.
