    Will Roma be ineligible for foreign film since Netlfix is distributing it? I am not familiar with the rules of the foreign branch.

    So, is this Ryan Gosling’s year?

    This is certainly his best shot so far. But I think Dafoe will also have a strong role and a great narrative. I also think that if Backseat is a Picture contender, then Christian Bale could be a serious threat to win

    Hoping a little that First Man becomes failed Oscar bait in the vein of Breathe or Stronger.

    Ik about Bale, but would they really be willing to give him another Oscar?

    I’m a Chazelle fan by this point (mostly for Whiplash for also for the technical beauty of La La Land) and even I don’t think Ryan Gosling was correctly cast as Neil Armstrong. Breathe also had Claire Foy, ironic that was one of your examples. She clearly wants to win the Oscar with these “long-suffering wife” roles in biopics, she just needs to not be so damn obvious about it.

    I’m hopeful for First Man, but I’m not expecting anything great to be honest.

    I just realized that Jason Reitman has two movies coming out this year, Tully and The Frontrunner. I knew those were both directed by him and were going to be released this year, but it never fully clicked until now. How cool would it be if both Hugh Jackman and Charlize Theron managed to win both Lead Acting categories for different films from the same director? Has that ever happened before?

    I know not everyone loves Tully, but at the very least it will help Jason Reitman’s Oscar narrative for The Frontrunner in showing his range as a director the same way Erin Brockovich helped Steven Soderbergh win for Traffic by showing his range.

    I’m not sure, but based on how quickly he racked up 3 nominations, the fact that he is very transformative in his roles, and that his only Oscar is a supporting one, I could see him having the support to win a second for a Lead role. Like I said, it depends on how Backseat does. But if it’s successful, i think he’ll be a serious threat, regardless of how recently he won.

    Lol. Blanchett was absolutely undeniable. That was one of the best performances this decade (or century). I don’t have much confidence in Close when her movie has already been seen by some and she still doesn’t have that frontrunner status. Her movie could easily be a non event, she would probably need help from the critics. However, I could see critics really going for Collette, the other non-awards friendly release date. But we’ll see, I like Close so I hope the best for her.

    What you’re saying is until you see the movie you won’t champion her chances of being a contender?

    No sure if this has been posted yet- There was a bidding war at Cannes for “Destroyer” starring Nicole Kidman and Sebastian Stan directed by Karyn Kusama. Looking forward to see how the film progresses into awards season, Nicole is in a good position with Destroyer and Boy, Erased to repeat her successful 2017 TV award season run.

    Yep, Annapurna won and will be distributing it. It’s interesting though because they also have Backseat, If Beale Street Could Talk, The Sisters Brothers, and Where’d You Go, Bernadette. My guess would be that The Sisters Brothers will be held off till next year. If Beale Street Could Talk is screening this week so we’ll hear about reactions soon. I have to think Destroyer will be a big priority for them otherwise the producers what would went with someone like Neon.
