After underperforming at pretty much every award show this season, should we consider Dunkirk being at risk of being shut out or only receive technical nominations? It hasn’t seemed to pick up much traction and missed out on a stunt ensemble win, which it seemed like it was guaranteed to win, and it’s still ranked in the Top 5 in Gold Derby’s predictions.January 22, 2018 at 11:05 am #1202474545
Have faith in the straight white man contingent to get it its Best Picture nomination.
The rest of it’s noms will be in tech categories, but that was always going to be the case. It never had a shot at screenplay or acting.January 22, 2018 at 11:12 am #1202474552
Pretty much done. It will probably win Best Film Editing and Sound Editing/Mixing.January 22, 2018 at 11:16 am #1202474557
It should win Cinematography as well.January 22, 2018 at 11:18 am #1202474563
Do y’all think it could still sneak into Director or is the competition too stiff?January 22, 2018 at 11:21 am #1202474569
Nolan has been a constant presence in Best Director lineups all season long. He seems guaranteed a spot, and Dunkirk should have no problem getting into Best Picture as well. The film might only win a tech category or two, or even walk home empty handed, but I can’t see anything stopping it getting nominated both above and below the line.January 22, 2018 at 11:48 am #1202474595
I bet Dunkirk will receive a good number of nominations, as expected, but it’ll end up being the big loser at the night of the Oscars.January 22, 2018 at 11:57 am #1202474608
Losing SAG Stunt Ensemble and only winning one award at Critics Choice (and a tie at that) has me thinking it may underperform tomorrow.
However, it seemed to show up a lot across many guilds. So I agree with Marco: a lot of nominations still seem likely. A bunch of wins seem questionable unless it wins awards at BAFTA and/or ACE, Cinema Audio Society, etc.January 22, 2018 at 12:18 pm #1202474629
As expected, it will receive a very good number of nominations tomorrow, probably 9, just not as good as The Shape of Water, which will receive at least 11. It’s not underperforming in terms of nominations, with considerable mentions in mostly of the important precusors. In terms of wins, however, it’s winning only 2 or 3 techs.January 22, 2018 at 12:56 pm #1202474656
no1curr not even Nolan.
