    I’m here. Got 28 films booked in over the 10 days.

    CMBYN is the inevitable, annual ‘masterpiece’ that I have major reservations about. Just didn’t buy the central relationship at all or the cryptic dialogue spoken by everyone throughout. It’s saved by a wonderful last 20 mins in which Stulbarg becomes a Supporting frontrunner if Hammer’s blatant category fraud doesn’t cannibalise his votes.

    Thompson is great in The Children Act but what starts out as an interesting legal/moral/marital drama becomes some preposterous stalker nonsense. Classy BBC Sunday night TV movie which looks risible on the big screen.

    Suburbicon is a grade A clusterfuck.

    Seeing Novitiate and Roman J. Israel Esq this eve.

    The Current War got mixed reviews. Finally, a fall festival casuality. It was starting to seem like every movie was an Oscar contender which is overwhelming when you’re trying to predict.

    People seem to be raving about Stuhlbarg in this film and I would love for him to be nominated, especially since he also has The Post and The Shape of Water this year. However, it’s hard for me to imagine a scenario in which he and Hammer get nominated in the same category since they seem to have a heavy screentime imbalance. It seems weird to me. Right now I am predicting Chalamet and Hammer in lead and supporting, respectively, but if Stuhlbarg is really great I could see him getting nominated in supporting and the other two snubbed.

    I am predicting Roman J. Israel, Esq. In Picture, Actor, Supporting Actor and Supporting Actress so depending on how things go tonight, my predictions could change drastically.

    I’m not sure CMBYN is as Academy friendly as people are anticipating. It’s a REALLY slow burn that looks lovely but the emotional pay off is extremely subtle as are the performances.

    I’d tentatively had The Current War in my predictions for Picture and Actor just because it was Weinstein’s only apparent contender this year, though I became sceptical after the first trailer, which looked weirdly superficially glossy. I thought I might as well leave the predictions in until the first reviews came; now that they have, those predictions for The Current War have gone in the bin.

    Please tell me it’s not as subtle (i.e. inexistent) as it was in Carol. Because if it’s like that it won’t make the book justice.

    The Current War may not be netting the greatest of notices but I still wouldn’t count out Shannon or its hopes in a couple of the tech categories. Weinstein will still push hard.

    That means zero for him to secure a nomination. Flight only received two nods. And Fences was no juggernaut despite have all the prestige in the world on paper.

    Shannon already has The Shape of Water. He’s not gonna need this flop Current War anymore.

    Just when one thought the Best Actor field couldn’t get any weaker 😀 I guess Gyllenhaal might be in after all.

    Jason Clarke is receiving glowing reviews as Ted Kennedy in “Chappaquidick. Film has been acquired for $20M. Might be a contender.
