With No Golden Globe wins, No SAG or WGA nominations, and its complete shut out from BAFTA, does it mean it is over for The Post. While it can still get a Picture nomination are Streep, Hanks, and Spielberg in trouble?

I think it’s done and this comes from someone who a few months ago thought that The Post is winning BP. We shouldn’t even talk about Spielberg, Hanks and Streep.
Edit: I was talking about their winning chances. For nominations, Picture and Streep are probably safe.

I still think it’s getting in for Picture and Streep but it isn’t winning anything.January 9, 2018 at 1:03 pm #1202462185
It’s chances are over for a win. It completely underperformed at the Globes (the second most nominations of the night and nothing to show for it). It was shut out at both SAG and BAFTA. So all in all “out look not good”.January 9, 2018 at 1:09 pm #1202462192
I actually just got home from seeing the “The Post” – turned on Ellen and both Hanks and Streep were on her show.
I loved the movie and I thought Meryl Streep gave a tremendous performance as Katharine Graham. The scene where she was in the bedroom with her daughter and reading the notes, the scene where she confronts McNamara (secretary of state) about how could the government continue to send “our boys” to die in a war they knew we weren’t going to win, and how she finally rose up and said the paper was no longer her husbands but hers and she was making the decisions. Just Streep at her best. I thought she was just terrific in a very solid movie that I think should be in the Oscar conversation along with Hanks and Bob Odenkirk.
Unfortunately, and I hope I’m wrong, but I think Streep may be the only one to receive a nod from this very important, and well done movie about the importance of a free press to our democracy! And then she isn’t even a given. Great movie and now I need to go update my Gold Derby nomination selections. A-January 9, 2018 at 3:33 pm #1202462301
I hope not because it is the second best movie of the year behind Wonder Wheel. If Three Billboards wins over this one, it would be a crime.January 9, 2018 at 3:46 pm #1202462322
It isn’t winning anything. Hanks and Spielberg haven’t been in the top 5 (IMO) for a while, Streep will probably get in and maybe Picture, but those will be the only two.
Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.January 9, 2018 at 3:49 pm #1202462326
I think The Post will end up being the sixth consecutive film Meryl is nominated for that recieves 3 or fewer total nominations.
Best Pic / Best Actress / Best Original Screenplay could happen.
But the screenplay nomination is at risk, and the Best Picture nomination probably can’t happen without it.
So it could end up being just Meryl. She’s unlikely to be snubbed. She’s fended off much tougher competition than Chastain and Dench.
If, for some reason, they decide to nominate John Williams for The Post over Star Wars, then the film could end up with the same 4 nominations Philomena recently earned.
If it gets the BP nom, it’ll be Meryl’s first BP appearance since The Hours. If it gets the BP and Lead Actress noms, it’ll be the first time since Out of Africa that Meryl appeared in a BP nominated film and earned an acting nomination for it.January 9, 2018 at 4:06 pm #1202462349
Considering BP can now have up to ten nominees, I still believe it very safe for a BP nomination. In previous years with only five nomineees, it would most certainly be in major trouble.
I still think Streep is in the strongest position to take the fifth slot for Best Actress, but it’s not a certainty. Spielberg could still make Best Director but it’s looking tough. Hank’s chances are all but out the window.January 9, 2018 at 5:59 pm #1202462478
They have been over. I’ve been saying it since SAG noms but stans wouldn’t listen. This is Silence all over again. A sole score nom.January 9, 2018 at 6:02 pm #1202462486
I think it will get 2 Oscar nominations: Picture and an acting nod for Meryl Streep, ala Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close a few years ago. It is D.O.A. for Screenplay and even Score in my opinion.January 9, 2018 at 6:03 pm #1202462488
Best pic and actress noms are a sure thing…..neither will be awarded.January 9, 2018 at 6:08 pm #1202462507
And to think I had this predicted for like 13 when that trailer dropped. I think it gets two also (John Williams could still be in contention for score). I remember someone posting something I think either Anne Thompson or Sasha Stone wrote about the film not connecting to the below the line folks b/c of its feminist message.January 9, 2018 at 6:12 pm #1202462520

Sasha is always full of shit when it comes to that kind of stuff. IMHO, she is precisely the kind of “sjw” that makes true social progressives all look like PC-extremist idiots to some people.
