Okay, I just want start with this, YES Get Out was a great movie, YES Get Out broke many racial barriers, YES I love Jordan Peele, but in NO POSSIBLE WAY DID IT DESERVE TO WIN BEST PICTURE. Now I know this is probably gonna piss a lot of people off because it will feel like I am personally attacking you, but I am not. I just personally feel like almost every other movie (except Dunkirk, and Phantom Thread) were better Oscar type movies. And in all reality maybe I’m wrong, because everything I’m saying here is simply an opinion, but I do like to think my opinions when it comes to movies are usually pretty good. Now I am going to guess that about 80 percent of the people who are going to read this have not, and probably never will see The Shape of water, mainly because its weird as fuck. But believe me when I tell you that Guillermo Del Toro created an entire world, and script so captivating that there is no doubt in my mind that this movie deserved the awards it received. Sally Hawkins on screen performance as the mute janitor who falls in love with the amphibian God, is a true fairy tale brought to life right in front of your eyes. All Im trying to say right now is before you shit on the Academy like we all have before, give this one a shot. Go into it with an open mind and try to enjoy a truly great movie, if you leave hating it then by all means tell me to go fuck myself and I gladly will. Until that point comes a long I will continue skipping along my yellow brick road like the snobby critic I am slowly becoming.
