    American Pastoral is apparently a mess, so I think it’s time for people to remove it from their predictions. Snowden isn’t looking too hot either. None of this surprises me.

    I never understood the buzz around American Pastoral. I never thought it’d be anything more than mediocre at best. The whole talk about it just seemed weird to me. Snowden being unimpressive is disappointing but not unexpected either. Magnificent Seven looks to be a half-decent but not Oscar-worthy predictable Western.

    On the brighter side of things, Access Hollywood’s Scott Mantz insists Michael Shannon is a lock for a Best Supporting Actor nomination for Nocturnal Animals, and I’m inclined to believe it, based on Shannon’s work and the other praise I’m hearing for his performance. Amy Adams is getting more praise for both her films, a bidding war seems to be forming around Jackie, and Hidden Figures showed footage that seems to be positively received. The Birth of a Nation also seems to be warmly greeted but not as “buzz-worthy” as Sundance.

    In terms of previously undiscussed surprises, “A Monster Calls” should start showing up on Oscar radars fairly soon. Reviews are quite good and seems to be quite an emotional journey.

    I saw The Red Turtle at TIFF yesterday, it’s exactly the kind of thing that animators love. Visually beautiful, and pushes the limits of what animation can convey. Look at it to spoil for an Oscar nom.

    Going to be seeing A couple things today, neither have an especially large amount of buzz. I can likely be the one to report on ones that other people don’t see, may be able to provide some balance.

    Another Best Actress contender has emerge.

    After all, Hunter has just delivered one of her richest, most lived-in performances, playing a mother struggling to come to terms with her son’s suicide in “Strange Weather,” which premieres next week at the Toronto Intl.

    The Best Actress category this year is dynamite.

    I hope Holly’s movie gets released next year because from what I’ve heard so far she gives a career best performance deserving of a win.

    If Strange Weather is released this year, this becomes my most anticipated category of the year. Three performances are being claimed as career-best and Oscar-worthy (Stone, Portman, Hunter), Amy Adams has TWO acclaimed performances that she could very well be nominated for, Ruth Negga gave a breakout performance that could take off, and that’s just what we’ve seen. Viola Davis still has one of the most anticipated performances of the year still to come, and that’s without accounting for Chastain, Blunt, and who knows how many others with possible contenders.

    It is interesting how quickly Meryl Streep entered and left the conversation. I can see Florence Foster Jenkins getting completely shut out if Supporting Actor steps up its game.

    2. Viola Davis, Fences

    3. Ruth Negga, Loving

    Another Critic talking about Hunter’s performance as the best performance he’s seen so far in Toronto.

    In a year full of career best performances by women, I have a feeling Ruth Negga has a possibility of getting snubbed and also Amy Adams of canceling herself out with her two films. Meryl Streep will be forgotten also, there’s way too many great performances to choose from this time.

    If Holly delivered a Career best performance, than it must be one of the greatest performances ever because she was OUTSTANDING in “The Piano.”

    Reminder every new and exciting contender who enters the race edges out Adams from the final five. She’s weak tea and Portman’s a lock. Davis is getting in. Stone is likely too since her movie is a big deal. None of Adams’ movies are critical darlings. And her performance and inflated nomination count will not be enough.

    Holly Hunter returning to prominence is unexpected and incredibly exciting. 90’s winners who I want to see return for repeat nods/wins include Hunter, Emma Thompson, Kathy Bates, and Dianne Wiest.

    It’d also lineup with her previous nominations since she’s either nominated in a year that ends either a 3 or a 7.

    I actually agree with you. I don’t think Adams and Negga are happening anymore.
