Before I start diving into individual IMDB release date listings, I figured I’d ask here since so many in the community have this info at their fingertips:
In the last decade, which major Oscar contenders (eventual Picture, Director, Screenplay or Acting nominees) were from films that were released pre-September? I’m thinking of things like HELL OR HIGH WATER (August), MAD MAX: FURY ROAD (May), or STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON (August).
Or if a film didn’t score any nods in those categories but had 4 or more in the craft/technical fields, that would be cool, too. Thanks!
Crash, The Kids Are All Right, Blue Jasmine, Boyhood, Midnight In Paris, The Help, Beasts Of The Southern Wild( January of 2012 release though), Winters Bone, Toy Story 3, Inception, The Tree Of Life, The Grand Budapest Hotel(March of 2014).
