Phantom Thread (C-) (Oscar rant inside)

Posted by: DTXbro (a.k.a SenJohnBlutarsky) on May 07, 14:17 in response to DTshakes' post Who Saw What Last Week (we still doing this on Mondays?)...

That Phantom Thread was nominated, Lady Bird was considered a contender, and Shape Of Water won in the context of Best Picture is a severe indictment of the Academy's judgment.  Three lousy movies.  Hidden Figures is an example of a movie that was better than those three combined.

That Daniel Day-Lewis chose Phantom Thread's script for his ostensible farewell indicates that he delegated the work or has gone daft.  Action Point might have been a more defensible selection.
