    Help please. LOL!!! I am really struggling on this category for Oscar predictions. I have only seen A Man Called Ove, The Salesman and Toni Erdmann. Where I need help is….after listening to the Gold Derby podcasts, everyone seems to be jumping on The Salesman bandwagon just because of the director can’t make it because of the political climate (ban…what ever we want to call it). I know a lot of Academy Members are aware of the situation, but I don’t know if I am convinced that everyone in the Academy knows about it, or do they? They do mention in podcasts about academy members always saying they are trying to vote for the best film (who knows if that really happens) but if that is the case, could a lot of voters still go with Toni Erdmann since it seemed to go over well with the critics. Any thoughts and opinions…really don’t know where to go with my vote in this category.

    Yes, it’s difficult… but it hurts my heart to say it: I love Toni Erdmann, but I will go with The Salesman as well.

    Erdmann seems to be more the critics’ darling, not necessarily filmmakers’. It’s very long, has a special type of humor that works better on the big screen with an audience, not alone at home in front of your screener.

    This is the category where you can make a statement, especially when the unpolitical LLL is dominating most categories. So, yeah, I will go with The Salesman.

    If Toni Erdmann wins Bafta, with these news about a remake, I can see myself predicting it to win.
