    How many Oscars will the live-action film receive and will any be for its large ensemble?

    Caught this last night at a critics screening and can say it has Costume and Production Design down on lock. As the end credits rolled Emma Watson and Josh Gad got a nice applause, but the loudest (and most deserving) was for Luke Evans (Gaston) who should be an Oscar nominee for this.

    Does he have a chance? The critic reviews are not very good so I am suspecting it will not get any non tech nominations, but will do fine at the Globes. Since you’ve seen it, can you confirm this?

    63 on Metacritic and 74 on Rotten Tomatoes as it stands. Very relieved. I had a real feeling it was going to be panned.

    Depends on how the race shakes out. If it’s like this years, then I’d say he may have a fighting chance. I actually preferred Luke Evans performance to any of those nominated this past year, but then again this past year was really weak all around.

    Tech is probably as good as it’ll get for B&TB, tho. The reviews aren’t misleading. It’s just okay, falls kinda flat at times, and is too slow paced for my liking. It was, however, still better than “LaLa Land”.

    Yeah, I would think a combo of Costumes and Production Design is its Oscar ceiling.

    Reviews have gotten much better thank goodness. It is now up to a 79% and I have a feeling it will only go higher. I have heard many critics say that it is a definite contender for a  best picture nomination and maybe even the win. I doubt that but without seeing the movie I’d support rallies around it I would love to see it be a contender. I am a huge fan of the original so I think it would be such an amazing story (and one the campaign team should use) if this one ended up getting nominated like the original.

    I am making an early prediction, however, that this will get on the board as an Oscar contender after the Globe nominations. I have a feeling it will do very good at the Globes.

    One Alabama Drive-In has banned it. So maybe that will boost its Oscar chances!

    Was there a reason why it was banned?

    Graham Jr is calling for a boycott because of gay “Lefou” saying that Walt would never allow it. Geez

    Because of LeFou. The Director mentioned that LeFou is questioning his sexuality.

    The funny thing is the owner of the drive-in claims he only shows family friendly movies where you don’t “have to explain things to your kids”. However, months earlier they showed Sausage Party. Like that raunch fest wouldn’t raise any questions among children.

    I’m very confident B&B will get in for Costumes, Production Design and Song. There are 3 new songs written for the film. “Evermore” can be heard and purchased on iTunes now (the Josh Groban version~ in the film, Dan Steven, “The Beast”, sings it). It sounds like total Oscar material… I’m excited to see the reviews rise and hear good things about Luke Evans. Cant wait to see it.

    Those banning cracks me up. Have they not seen the original? He clearly was into Gaston then too.

    What an amazingly fantastic movie. I was really apprehensive about Emma Watson as Belle but she was endearing and there was never a moment when i thought i was watching Hermione on screen. Luke Evans was outstanding, he kinda made you sympathetic for Gaston. And the whole LeFou controversy is BS. I guess Disney wanted to get publicity but it backfired on them. There is no clear indication of LeFou being gay until the very end in a fleeting glimpse. One of the cross-dressing Three Musketeers was more gay than LeFou.

    Anyways, The movie had more background about the Beast and Belle but it gets tedious with new songs and gets very Broadway-ish. The highlight for me was the very end when the beat transforms and the fact that they kept the same music from the animated movie for that scene. The 9 year old in became alive once again and i kinda teared up.

    Other than that for now its a lock for Costume Design, Cinematography, Production Design, Costume and Sound mixing and editing. Not sure about the score and song since its not “original” per say and Forevermore, while great if not THAT good. So yeah come next year its going to get some technical awards. A Best Picture nomination might also be on the cards if the competition is weak.
