Oscar voters get DVD screener of ‘Call Me By Your Name’

Luca Guadagnino‘s gay romance “Call Me By Your Name” is one of the best-reviewed films of the year and a strong Oscar contender across-the board. Academy members just got a DVD screener of this film which charts the stormy course of a 1983 summer romance between Elio (Timothee Chalamet), an Italian teenager, and Oliver (Armie Hammer), an American academic seven years his senior who has come to stay at his father’s (Michael Stuhlbarg) villa. Oscar nominee James Ivory adapted Andre Aciman‘s 2007 bestseller of the same name.

“Call Me By Your Name” occupies one of the top five slots in five key Oscar categories according to our official odds and is tipped to win Best Adapted Screenplay category. Chalamet is currently ranked second in the Best Actor race by our Oscar experts behind screen veterans Gary Oldman (“Darkest Hour”). Stuhlbarg and Hammer are third and fourth respectively for Best Supporting Actor race, and both the film and the director are in fourth place.
