Is it? On paper it looks unbeatable!March 3, 2016 at 2:44 am #219996
reading about The Zookerper’s Wife, that movie sounds like THE Oscar bait movie.
But Scorsese Dream project must be something special!March 3, 2016 at 3:12 am #219997
Isn’t it being touted for a December release. Stats would suggest no just based on that. I think it could do a Revenant and lead the nominations tally though.March 3, 2016 at 6:04 am #219998
If its good then yeah its winningMarch 3, 2016 at 7:18 am #219999
Judging from the past few years — if it’s a beautifully made, transcendant work of art that is subtle and challenging, I don’t think it’s likely. Here’s hoping!March 3, 2016 at 7:22 am #220000
^ If anyone can win for something like that, it’s Scorsese. That is, at least at this stage of his career as opposed to when he was younger and losing to big movie stars who tripped and fell onto the wrong side of the camera.March 3, 2016 at 8:39 am #220001
Definately one I’m going to predict but I’m waiting on “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” and “The Light Between Oceans” to really figure it out. Something tells me its going to be one of the three though. Just a gut feeling.March 3, 2016 at 9:24 am #220002

The Birth of a Nation seems like an early frontrunner to me both on paper and based on Sundance reviews.March 3, 2016 at 11:35 am #220004
I’m guessing no.
Also no to Birth, Manchester, Oceans, and Billy Lynn. Silence is more likely than those on paper.
But last year on paper it was supposed to be a battle among Carol, Joy, Bridge of Spies, Danish Girl, and Hateful Eight. So…March 3, 2016 at 11:47 am #220005
Hmmm, from the looks of it “Silence” will be about the noble suffering of white men with a pedigreed cast and a prestigious director. So I think it’s already won 17 or 18 Oscars in advance.
Though in any case it would be nice to finally get Liam Neeson some gold. Poor guy was only ever nominated for “Schindler’s List,” and that’s just not right. Clearly noble suffering is the best way to win Oscars (McConaughey, Redmayne, DiCaprio), so fingers crossed for him.March 3, 2016 at 12:23 pm #220006
I mean, even Bafta only bothered nominating him for that, so it’s not like AMPAS is particularly unfair about his career.March 3, 2016 at 3:02 pm #220007
Isn’t the Best Picture winner Birth of a Nation? The Nate Parker film? At least right now. Since people have already seen it.
I mean Silence can surely go all the way considering the people involved. But the winner for now seems to be Birth.March 3, 2016 at 3:19 pm #220008
I need to see a trailer to say. But it looks like it has all the right stuff to be the Nominations leader.
PS: Why the hell Scorsese droped Robert Richardson as DP for Rodrigo Prieto?
