Apparently the comic book movies of 2020 are just Birds of Prey, New Mutants, Bloodshot (the Vin Diesel movie), and Wonder Woman 1984. And a bunch of "who cares" animated stuff.

Yeah, that's admittedly a tough few movies to award accolades.

For me?

Best Movie:

New Mutants.

It wasn't great, it wasn't even particularly "really good," but it seemed solid enough as a film and on a script level and seemed to be the movie it set out to be. When it was over I just kind of shrugged -- I wouldn't mind seeing sequels to it, or these characters again, but it wouldn't really bother me if we didn't either.

Best Director:

Patty Jenkins.

While WW84 has a horrible script, pretty much everything on a technical level and visually was sound enough. While I don't care for Jenkins' vision personally that doesn't mean it wasn't executed well in line with it.

Best Actress:

Gal Gadot.

She carries all of WW84 and came within striking distance of saving it. Almost.

Best Actor:

Jeeze. I don't know. That's a tough one. Certainly nobody in WW84. Going out on a limb and assuming nobody in Bloodshot, either. Yet, of the 4 movies... nobody is male that's a lead character except... lol... I guess Vin Diesel as Bloodshot just wins it by default, right?

Best First Appearance:

Anya Taylor-Joy as Magik.

I'd never heard of this character before but I'd seen the actress in the Split/Glass movies. For what wasn't a very great movie, she was really memorable as Magik. I'd have loved to have seen her go all-out in like a proper MCU movie or something.

No, Birds of Prey doesn't deserve any awards for anything. Not even costumes.

Why does Comicbook.com have such a raging hardon for the BOP movie?

It's weird. I know CBS owns comicbook.com but... what does CBS have to do with WB? Perhaps WB worked out some kind of deal with CBS to increase interest in HBO Max or something.

Perhaps CBS just doesn't want to "award" either WW84 or New Mutants (now, Bloodshot I can understand them -- or anybody -- not wanting to award anything to) because doing so would be rewarding either AT&T or Disney, in a way. Like, "We want you to subscribe to CBS All Access... not HBO Max or Disney+." But they don't really have anything of their own to award that's a comic book movie.

BIRDS OF PREY has been shortlisted for TWO Oscar Nominations:

- Best Make Up and Hairstyling
- Best Visual Effects

https://comicbook.com/movies/news/bi...r-nominations/

Guess it’ll be Harley’s second Oscar movie after Suicide Squad won an Oscar previously.

Cause it's 'progressive' and 'diverse' and 'girl power' and 'white man bad' and all that other jazz.

What's so good about garbage receiving accolades?

Even in your righteous zeal you should understand that your ideology will win more hearts and minds, if its projects would actually be, you know, good.

Because not everyone sees things like you do. You can’t appreciate them but many others do.

By nobody that matters. Just to appease the 'woke' masses. I mean Harley's actress can barely brag about getting an award for best make up when all the effects obviously went to Killer Croc.

Not "Nobody". Fat Lesbians. They're who every TV show and movie is made for now. THEY have to think something is good before you're allowed to say it's good.

Didn't you get the memo?

I am so incredibly envious of Margot Robbie, who's mostly famous for flashing her tits and beaver in a Leonardo DiCaprio movie where he snorted cocaine off of her tits.

Stunning and Brave. Excellent role model and hero to women everywhere. Definitely, definitely not another Whore Who Made Good. Definitely not.

I imagine most of the "history" she's making is setting a new record for f*cking the most executive suits at Warner Brothers. That would explain, like, her entire career.

Given ratings this crap had received, majority shares my opinion.
But continue to pretend this crap is good...for reasons.

Acclaim and recognition from members of the same circle to each other means like one friend gives award to his best friend, ignoring how crap his product was. Not really sure what it accomplishes, aside from showing everyone with a half of a brain, that modern Hollywood is circlejerking each other and any attempt to search for objectivity and quality is void.
