    Is Anyone excited for this movie!

    Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, who previously did Short Term 12

    Starring:

    Academy Award Winner – Brie Larson
    Academy Award Nominee – Woody Harrelson
    Academy Award Nominee – Naomi Watts

    To be Released on August 11, 2017

     

    Any guesses how this will perform in terms of Oscar predictions? This year’s Manchester By the Sea?

    I can see this film performing similar to Manchester By the Sea if it’s well received (directed by same person who did Short Term 12)

    Best Picture
    Best Director – Destin Daniel Cretton
    Best Actress – Brie Larson
    Best Supporting Actor – Woody Harrelson
    Best Supporting Actress – Naomi Watts
    Best Adapted Screenplay

    I think Woody has the best chance out of this movie nominations to win.

    I have a feeling it’ll have a good score too. The biographical films usually do.

    Fingers crossed Woody does the best when it comes to awards, it’s about time he received some recognition.

    Imma get those tissue boxes ready :'(

    Woody is on the top of alot of prediction sites right now for Supporting Actors lol, I do think the supporting race will be between him and one of the Call Me actors for now.

    Playing a mom (21 Grams, The Impossible, The Glass Castle)…Check

    Something bad happens to her family (21 Grams, The Impossible, The Glass Castle)…Check

    Getting destroyed emotionally and physically (21 Grams. The Impossible, The Glass Castle) and now financially (The Glass Castle)….Check

    Sounds like a formula thats locked her for a nomination in the past.

    If Naomi pulls a 21 gram kitchen/front door meltdown scene or The Impossible crying on the plane/hospital, she’s locked for a nomination and hopefully a win regardless of screen time. I’m sure she has more big scenes with Brie.

    I just hope it don’t flop. I need it to be at least decent for Naomi. Larson can disappear for all I care.

    Watts isn’t a lock for a win if any of her rival nominees are a more overdue veteran like Pfeiffer or Bening.

    If anyone who hasn’t read the memoir Watts’ character can be incredibly unlikable at times. I don’t know if it will hurt her chances but she should have plenty of material to work off of.
    But each character has a very full emotional arc so I wouldn’t be surprised if her and Harellson sweep. Larson will probably get a nod too since they’re giving her a bigger role.

    Detroit’s being released a week earlier and The Beguiled is being released this month, if we are calling those Oscar baits and locks despite Coppolas spotty record and release dates, then I think Glass Castle should be okay. It has a similar release date to Hell or High Water so I don’t think it’s DOA for award consideration.

    New Trailer

    Well guess they decided to drop a new 1 minute trailer with nothing much except new Brie dialogue and a 2 second sneak peak of Woody’s upcoming Oscar nomination clip lol.
