    reading about The Zookerper’s Wife, that movie sounds like THE Oscar bait movie. 

    But Scorsese Dream project must be something special!

    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.

    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!

    ^ 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.

    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.

    The Birth of a Nation seems like an early frontrunner to me both on paper and based on Sundance reviews.

    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…

    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. Wink

    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.

    I mean, even Bafta only bothered nominating him for that, so it’s not like AMPAS is particularly unfair about his career.

    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.

    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?
