The “[Thing] as [Thing]: A thread” construction yields mixed results. For every Tessa Thompson as goats, there’s some collection that juxtaposes one buzzy thing with another, and most of them are a stretch. But this is not that. This is a perfect example of the form. No flaws. Not a weak one in the bunch. Here, presented for your consideration, are the 2020 Academy Award nominees for Best Picture as Succession quotes, as selected by Twitter user @la_loulu.

A quick refresher, if you need one, before we begin:

Really could not be better. Listen, we know we’re just threading her tweets in a Kinja page, but the whole point is to get you, yes you, to see the perfection of each and every one of these. There are more!

That last one is apparently the moment that inspired the thread, and a great scene that really does speak to the movie without being particularly funny. We salute you, @la_loulu, and share your interest in a Fleabag/Succession crossover. Thank you for your service, and for that Joker comparison in particular.
