    I haven’t really been following this Oscar season at all but I’m curious why The Founder doesn’t seem to be gaining any awards traction at all; no Golden Globe nods; no SAG nod for Keaton, nothing at all. When this film was announced and the casting of Keaton was confirmed people were fairly confident this would be an Oscar film… so what happened? Did it simply open too late in the year to gain traction? Are there just better films out there?

    No one owes you an explanation if you chose not to follow this year’s race. Weinstein has a lot of internal problems that every seen jeopardizes their contenders. The Founder was seen as a dud before it was seen because of Weinstein keeping it out of the conversation alongside another non-starter from them Gold with McConaughey. Lion is the Weinstein contender that matters and has landed with precursor and guild support.

    They screwed up the release. And it wasn’t the best film either apparently. They did the same with Gold. I don’t even know if they actually opened for their qualifying runs or how they did at the box office during those days. I didn’t even see any of the usual sites I read for box office news report on their earnings.

    The OP didn’t indicate that anyone did, s/he just asked an open question which anyone can choose to answer or ignore at their will. Why so hostile?

    Yeah, don’t understand that annoying answer at all.

    The release. That is the death knell with a lot of terrific movies. They could be amazing, but they could be released too early or too late and be forgotten. All this has been a big lesson for me, an aspiring filmmaker.

    Box Office Mojo has no grosses recorded before this weekend, so did the movie really play that qualifying run in LA during the last week of December? And does that actually make this film eligible for the current awards season or next? They really muffed up the release on this one. Quality and worthiness aside, they did no favors for this film with the botched release plan.
