    I have the feeling some people in this forum will follow blindly Kate Winslet prediction even if this is going to crash badly…

    Kate Winslet is not an unreasonable prediction at this point, especially since Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie are not on solid ground and Streep could still flop. Hawkins and McDormand seem safe and the field isn’t actually as crowded as it looks like.

    And I have no idea who the “some people in this forum” you’re talking about…

    Streep will probably need a full time flop at this level for being out of the race. People took that mistake every year. She’s an exception to the rules related to AMPAS

    And while it’s true Robbie and Ronan aren’t “safe” yet, their films and performances have been reviewed and both have better opportunities. Heck even Dench has better chances than Winslet at this moment,

    Just keep in mind in the last 20 years no film by Woody Allen has been nominated at the Oscars with less of 70 on metacritic. Currently, Wonder Wheel has 54 (And 50% on Rotten Tomatoes with the average grade of 6), and then, the critics outside the big cities have less appretiation to Allen’s films than NY and LA. Winslet isn’t an overdue actress waiting for the Oscar as happened in 2008 for surpassing this huge obstacle.

    I wonder why The NY Times hasn’t reviewed Wonder Wheel?

    When a Woody picture garners a lukewarm critical reception, the Academy almost always opts to ignore it. I suspect that’s the case here, barring that possible Cinematography nod.

    It’s irritating that the last time an Allen film whose reception averaged to the 50s on Metacritic broke through anyway was Mighty Aphrodite, blocking an Oscar win for…Kate Winslet, the Bafta and Sag winner.

    It’s currently at 33% on Rotten Tomatoes, making it Woody’s lowest-rated film ever! This movie is now officially out of the Oscar race.

    I think the movie was ok…not one of Woody best but way better than some recent like Cafe Society…

    I can’t believe Kate Winslet will be completly ignored for this performance…she was the movie. Great actress completly raising above material.

    Kate Winslet was indeed amazing in this.

    It’s so interesting to see different receptions in different countries. The Italian reviews for this film that I’ve read were all positive.

    It’s all about how people feel about Woody.

    Good riddance. All rapists and their enablers do not deserve any success.
