    I think Timmy getting a nomination depends on the quality of the film. If it is bad, he can not do it alone.

    If we have a lock for a nominee in the race at this point it’s T-Chal. Being the front-runner for the win at such an early stage could turn against him but he’s as guaranteed to get nominated as one can be.

    I could see him missing out on the nod only if the movie tanks dramatically both critically and at the box office. It would have to turn out to be a disappointment of otherworldly proportions, and it certainly doesn’t look that bad – the studio obviously has faith in it so it’s almost guaranteed to be of at least decent standard.

    I suspect the worst-case scenario is that it will underwhelm given the high expectations and won’t be nominated for Directing, Best Picture and such. Even then, T-Chal will sneak in as the sole nominee.

    Couldn’t have worded it better myself. Oscar voters often seem to pay more attention to buzz for films than they pay attention to the actual films and performances themselves. Certainly made it easy for me to predict the nominees the most recent year with that in mind.

    This is obviously true to an extent, but I also expect T-Chal’s performance to truly be so exceptional it cannot be ignored even if the film disappoints. All signs point to that being the case.

    Agreed. I recall how Hunter-ish actually said that Timmy was his personal Best Actor winner for CMBYN yet he thought his performance in Beautiful Boy was the best of his career so far. That’s really saying something, even as I choose to deliberately keep my expectations moderated, so I don’t get let down due to all the overwhelming positive hype clouding my judgement.

    Clip looks wonderful. Can’t wait to see the full trailer. I will be shocked if T Chal is not nominated and I think if he deserves to win he will. After last year Oscar voters know what an exceptional talent he is and he has become a veteran after one tremendous performance in CMBYN.

    Steve Carrell also seems great judging by that clip.

    Carrell gets to say “Who are you, Nick?” for 1 second, and he’s great?

    “Judging by that clip” Can you read?

    yeah the voters tend to look at and favour past nominees. No doubt the early buzz of beautiful boy has the film on many voter’s radars.

    Hopefully Amazon distributes and markets the film well to maintain momentum going into award season. We know that SPC dropped the ball with cmbyn distribution and promotion ( Kimmel even brought it up st the oscars) and the buzz fizzled out towards the end of award season.

    I read very well. How can he be great based on that clip? He literally does nothing or looks like nothing.

    Second teaser is a lot better than the first. I have my reservations but I’ve read good things, so I’m keeping my hopes up. I think at least this film will get a nomination for Chalamet.

    Wait, I did not realize Amy Ryan and Steve Carrel were playing husband and wife in this. Gonna be hard for me to appreciate a dramatic performance when Michael and Holly are reunited on screen lmao

    I think it’s wonderful based on the teasers. My opinions might change by time but judging by the cast and the material the film based on I think it’ll be great… Plus it’s a Pitt+Gardner+Kleiner team up.

    Wouldn’t it make more sense to just award the actors who gave the best performances. Just saying.
