Inner City is the current frontrunner for Best Actor
Can it sneak in for Best Picture?March 1, 2017 at 6:36 am #1202026883
I don’t think this’ll be ready in time but I am glad to see Sanders working.March 1, 2017 at 6:55 am #1202026892
This is what I call some dedicated reverse trolling.
Since when is Denzel the current frontrunner for Best Actor?
Pretty much every pundit, if they are even talking about it has Gary Oldman in Darkest Hour as the frontrunner for next year’s race.March 1, 2017 at 7:04 am #1202026898

Denzel just lost to an undeserved winner.That is how overdue narratives beginMarch 1, 2017 at 7:11 am #1202026905
Then let that narrative write itself naturally. If people feel that way, it will happen. You can’t force it.
Right now, Oldman is by far the obvious frontrunner, without having seen any of the potential contenders. A great, legendary actor who has never won an Oscar, playing by far the baitiest role of next season by far. It trumps Denzel, who already has 2 Oscars, in a less baity role.March 1, 2017 at 7:14 am #1202026906
Winston Churchill overkill will kill Oldmans chancesMarch 1, 2017 at 7:23 am #1202027100
It won’t. What might kill his chances if critics awards don’t go hard for it, because they can more or less decide the acting winners these days, especially if they allow one person to sweep. And critics awards are a disadvantadge for Denzel as well. They haven’t really supported him since Training Day, and don’t see why they’d start again now.
We may just end up with Daniel Day-Lewis winning a 4th Oscar, because between those 3 guys, critics are far more likely to give DDL a sweep of their awards.March 1, 2017 at 7:56 am #1202027121
^^^ Denzel just lost to an undeserved winner.That is how overdue narratives begin
He doesn’t have an overdue narrative and the right performance won this year. If this year proved anything, it’s that the Academy is in no rush to give him a 3rd Oscar. And I suspect that part of the reason may be because they don’t take his frequent action movie ventures very seriously. The many middling action star vehicles he picks may make him an audience favourite, but they’re simply not the kind of films that the voters respect. His filmography, especially in comparison to a good chunk of the 3x winners, is lacking. My feeling is that he’ll probably need to star in prestige films a bit more frequently instead of an occasional one or two every ten years in the middle of dozen of forgettable movies. That or give an undeniable performance. Fences, despite being predictably good work, wasn’t it.
It’s a very exclusive club and I do think he’ll have to work a little harder and mix it up a bit more to get in. Inner City sounds like an excellent step in the right direction.March 1, 2017 at 8:44 am #1202027147

I think it will be. Starts shooting April 5th. Shouldn’t require extensive or long post-production, or SFX work. Should be ready by the end of the year.
Sanders has already stated the film is going to be a 2018 release.March 1, 2017 at 9:33 am #1202027198
