    Not.  But there should have been.

    Carol is the frontrunner.

    His upcoming Peggy Lee biopic looks intriguing. He shouldnt have any trouble getting the film out.

    Who’s he going to cast in the Lead? She gets to age almost 70 years.

    Jennifer Lawrence?

    Lol.

    Also, would it be too soon for him to win another Oscar for it?

    Too bad Todd Haynes didn’t get a Best Director nod.

    I saw a Ridley Scott thread about why he was snubbed, but I didn’t see anything on ‘Carol’. 

    Any conspiracy theories about why it was snubbed for Picture and Director? Was it because of the theme? Weinstein backlash?

    Too boring and uncommercial.  The guilds did not respond to it either.

    It deserved its nomination. Glad to see the Academy going for movies like this.

    And of course, it got two lead actress nominations. The first time sine 1991.
    And by the way, Rooney Mara sweeping the precursors in lead is an experience to behold. She’s so winning for what is the best performance of the year.
    It’s going to win Picture, Directing, Actress for Rooney, Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, Production Design, Costume Design, Score.

    I can’t believe we’ve finally reached the time in history where a generation of Academy members stood up and declared YES! to lesbians and YES! to female-centric films and YES! we want this masterpiece that the critics loved to sweep through the Oscars and break the record for most wins in one night!
