Thoughts? Silence looks dead in the water now…January 5, 2017 at 7:12 am #1201980187
It is ridiculous that the Jungle Book isn’t in there.January 5, 2017 at 7:18 am #1201980193
Riley, does the snub for the Jungle Book hurt its oscar chances?January 5, 2017 at 7:26 am #1201980200
Some films didn’t send screeners and I don’t know if Jungle Book was one of them or not.January 5, 2017 at 7:38 am #1201980205
The production design in Fences is not good compared to Florence Foster Jenkins and a few others.January 5, 2017 at 7:51 am #1201980216

These people are so desperate to call Silence dead it’s hilarious at this point. Is it hard to understand that no screeners were sent out? It’s Dante Ferretti in a Scorsese period piece. Do you all really think it would have been snubbed had enough of them seen it?
Silence is one of those rare cases that we won’t know how well it’ll do until nominations morning. It could get 8 or 10 nominations, or none at all. And we have to deal with the uncertainty — I know some people are psychologically challenged and can’t handle that. MAYBE Bafta will be of help. Proclaiming it dead because it missed on these guild awards is not very smart.
On another note: glad Deadpool didn’t show up here!January 5, 2017 at 8:14 am #1201980246
So we also shouldn’t count out Live by Night? Lol.January 5, 2017 at 8:25 am #1201980261
No we have to wait for PGA to see if Silence is 100% dead. If it misses, it’s over.January 5, 2017 at 8:25 am #1201980262
I think the only reason Florence Foster Jenkins missed here is because it also had no screeners sent out, and that was released long ago. That’s how important screeners are.January 5, 2017 at 8:27 am #1201980265
I’m making a joke dude, relax.
Voters tend to follow the trends, could Silence breakthrough at the Oscars, maybe. But it needs to start picking up nods somewhere, at some point it can’t be the screeners excuse the whole time.
Some of these guilds are snubbing major “stars” in their profession. It’s not like they live under rocks when it comes to voting.
It needs some support at BAFTA.
