  1. I had to double-and-triple-check this (I might still be wrong): EEAAO is the first sci-fi film to win Best Picture? Ever?

    LOTR: Return of the King and The Shape of Water (and arguably Birdman) were all fantasy. A Clockwork Orange Lost to The French Connection, Star Wars lost to Annie Hall, E.T. to Gandhi, Apollo 13 to Braveheart, Her to 12 Years a Slave, Mad Max Fury Road to Spotlight, Dune to CODA. EEAAO is the first sci-fi throughout the award’s entire 95-year history to pass the hurdle.

    That’s honestly incredible. As magnificent of a film as it is, the sheer magnitude of EEAAO’s success has felt unreal to me.

  2. Post-script: My SO has pointed out that Shape of Water is a borderline case because of its status as a monster movie. Still, EEAAO seems clear-cut.

  3. We watched Everything Everywhere All at Once instead of the Oscars tonight. Started out thinking “what the hell is this?”, ended up thinking “this is really, really good!”

  4. I’m really angry that Indie did not put RRR forward for Best Foreign Language Picture, because RRR might have saved us from All Quiet on the Western Front.

  5. Even though EEAAO got so many nominations, I didn’t think the Academy votership would go for such a quirky genre-bending movie. It’s so far removed from an Oscar-bait movie. I am so glad to be wrong.
