Even if not for another Maleficent movie, more $ towards this well help support the rooiginal decision not keep Joachim as director for Pirates 6(and with that have it less likely to completely reboot and fire Johnny Depp :)

How is Joachim related to the production of this film? I don't quite understand the correlation.

Joachim Ronning directed both Dead Men Tell No Tales and Mistress of Evil. If MoE does well enough, Disney may decide to keep him on as director for the planned Pirates 6, of which he was supposedly signed on for before helming MoE. Since DMTNT did decently enough and received a lot of positive fan reception, even from those who didn't really like it/the other Pirates sequels, it may prompt Disney to continue Pirates with where they were going (since Joachim himself said that DMTNT "was only the beginning of the finale", notwithstanding the hanging plot threads from both DMTNT and OST (On Stranger Tides)'s post credits scenes along with other things like the absence of Pintel & Raghetti) and not completely reboot without Johnny Depp, especially after all of the issues with him abusing Amber Heard have been overall resolved, as well as the fact that his performance as Grindelwald was one of the few things that critics and most fans actually liked about Fantastic Beasts and The Crimes of Grindelwald

Thank you for explaining. I didn't realize that both films shared the same director. I'm not sure why there's still so much controversy over Johnny Depp when he was basically absolved. If anyone should be receiving flack, it should be Amber Heard but I haven't seen her career or reputation impacted at all.

Looks like people underestimated this as much as Aladdin.

The film is having great holds at the box office. Glad to see its hairstyling get recognized. I probably would have give it a makeup nom too, as Angelina's makeup (as well as Warwick Davis' among other) were more impressive than some of the films in that list.

The Academy didn't provide a shortlist for that category. We'll have to wait for the nominations to see if it made it through.

I hope it doesn't get a costume nomination lol. The only costumes worth anything were the ones Michelle Pfeiffer wore, otherwise Aurora looked atrocious as always.

They looked like jokes lol. There's a reason people were saying they hated them and were glad to see them go.

It wasn't just their costumes for me. It was their whole backstory and motive to fight. I hated everything about them.

I heard that when Maleficent first finds out about them and meets them, there were people laughing in the theaters unironically because the characters just didn't work.

I'd be surprised if it won over something like Downton Abbey.

LOL I hope so!

You don't think this dress for Aurora is pretty?

Honestly no. There was a lot of praise for it here but it looked super bland to me. It's just so plain with only a few flowers thrust around and honestly, it looks like something that belongs in a dusty old attic. Cinderella's wedding dress was worlds apart and as critical as I am of Belle's costumes in Beauty and the Beast, I absolutely adored her ending dress. Jasmine's wedding dress was okay but I would have preferred something closer to her animated version...the teal coloring and pants just didn't work for me.
