Nominations are coming on Tuesday and I always make this yearly poll. This is just a head up so that once ready the poll can de published as soon as possible as it will be more succesful closer to the announcement.

Once we know the nominees I'll have a first list tuesday morning and I will be eager to read what surprised you so I can add it as an option and have everything ready that day.

List: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls041875678/

I'm not very surprised because the rumors pointed to this, but Black Panther nominated for Best Film ?? Marketing at its best... Extraordinary job from the producers in marketing strategy because the movie isn't that great but I'm not necessarily saying that it's bad. I just don't think that it's a Oscar contender but what I know??

P.s: I'm not saying this because it's a superhero movie, in fact I like a lot this genre but I don't think that Black Panther it's a worth Contender... Unfortunately The Dark Knight was in the period of some reluctance by the Oscars

The Dark Knight should have been a contender, and I also think other films were better than Black Panther, it is added.

I agree 100% with you. The Dark Knight is the only superhero movie that really deserved a Oscar nomination for Best Picture but like I say, it was released in a time of some Reluctance from the Oscars. It was more than a Superhero movie, it transcends more than that.

Black Panther isn't the best marvel movie. The movie got nominated more because of his meaning than from his quality

completely agreed. While I think Black Panther was not necessarily a bad film, there were tens if not hundreds of films at leastg on the same level. But lets be honest here, the idea of a Black superhero film is right up liberal Hollywood's alley. The argument how much money it made is also not really relevant to me. If they take that into consideration, they should have gone for the infinitely superior Infinity War. And while we're at it, please give Brolin that supporting nod too. Thatg one getting nothing except visual effects is kinda bad joke too.

A few big surprises for sure. The biggest one (IMO):

No Best Documentary nomination for Won't You Be My Neighbor? (2018). That's seriously a travesty!

No Best Actor nomination for Chamelet's performance in Beautiful Boy (2018). Didn't love the film but his performance deserved some recognition.

No Best Director nomination for Cooper's work in A Star Is Born (2018)

No Original Screenplay nomination for Eighth Grade (2018). Was such a true-to-life story, totally deserved it. 

And finally I'd say:

No Best Actress nomination for Collette's performance in Hereditary (2018). She just killed it.

Great idea!  My most surprising was Emily Blunt - she had two pretty great performances this year!  What on earth?

I thought Cooper would be the ninth performer with a triple nomination in acting/writing/directing, I had my poll ready so I'm quite surprised by his snubbing.

In the title, Oscars should be Oscar:

Hi Ruby. I'm not sure how to do that since it is a hyperlink to the event page in the IMDb and the title appears authomatically.

Do you know how?

If you use this format:

Jessica,

Peter and I recommended using the form: [link=tt9168816], which displays as The Oscars (2019).

This poll is prominently shown "User Polls" section on The Oscars (2019 TV Special).


What you suggest will work. However, the downside is that the poll will no longer appear in in the "User Polls" section on The Oscars (2019 TV Special).

Oh.
Then I suppose Pencho could just change the phrasing of the question to:
After hearing the nominations for The Oscars (2019), what surprised you the most?
