    The fact that Steven Spielberg’s The Post is so late to the game leaves me wondering: is it going to end up like Catch Me If You Can, another late December release that seemed like a big Oscar contender but only got two Oscar nominations for Christopher Walken and John Williams. Do you think this could be the fate waiting for The Post?

    It could be, but Meryl Streep would be Christopher Walken. Tom Hanks would still be Tom Hanks.

    What do you mean when you say “Tom Hanks would still be Tom Hanks.”? Do you mean you think he could be snubbed yet again?

    Not likely. The 2002 awards season was among the first cycles I closely followed and I don’t recall Catch Me If You Can being terribly prominent in pundits’ predictions. It was marketed less as an Oscar contender than a popcorn blockbuster, with DreamWorks far more focused on Road to Perdition.

    It wishes it was Catch Me If You Can. That was at least an enjoyable film

    I believe “The Post” will be treated more like “Bridge of Spies”. It is a very professional production on a historical topic by a major director, and will get good enough reviews to be a likely best picture nominee, but never rise high enough over the competition to seem likely to win.

    People may troll you becuz I CANT BELIEVE THE HYPE!! but I really dont see a big nomination count for this one. I mean pundits arent even predicting it for screenplay.

    And again, have people forgotten what it’s about? They won’t be able to resist the relevance of it, that’s all there is to it. Literally any other movie, even with the same three, I could see where some people are coming from, just not this one, at this very moment.

    I personally have The Post being nominated for 5 Oscars: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Costume Design, and Best Original Score. I’m just throwing out the possibility of a worst-case scenario. I don’t understand why Tom O’Neil is clinging onto it when only recently we’ve gotten a poster and a trailer. Let’s not forget what happened to Martin Scorsese’s Silence last year.

    Has Tom mentioned if he’s seen it?

    I don’t know, but I doubt he’s seen it. It’s not even out for limited release until December 22.

    There has been at least one screening for the press.

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    Oh, I didn’t know. Tom said it was his ‘placeholder’, which seems to mean he hasn’t seen it.

    Catch Me if You Can is one of my favourite movies of all time, so it deserved more nominations, including one for Tom Hanks. But it only got two. Sad, but true. Oh well.

    I hope The Post is good and I think nominations for at least Hanks and Meryl will be in the bag but everything else I am not sure until the reviews come.
