    It absolutely is far too early to assume much at this point. A trailer is meant to draw your interest in a film, but is MORE often times than not, indicative of the quality of the film itself.

    I don’t think it’s a coincidence at all they’ve chosen 11/16 for the release date for this film, a prime awards date. I believe 20th Century Fox may feel they really have something on their hands with this one and will make it prime contender for an awards campaign..

    McQueen is an art house auteur. No matter how commercial the material he’ll mold it into something sophisticated.

    Viola will be nominated for Best Actress for sure and anyone who thinks otherwise is delusional

    – She’s already receiving great reviews for her performance (as expected)

    – She WILL deliver no matter what

    – She’s respected and has a huge clout within the industry (as proven by her triple crown of acting)

    – The diversity factor will heavily favor her

     

    it’s so obvious

    Lol. I’m predicting her as of right now, though the trailer makes me a bit hesitant. She’s definitely not a lock though. It’s June.

    Calling this film a lock for nominations based on that trailer is ridiculous. Its release date means nothing, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk had a November release date. Looks to me like a commercial success not an awards contender.

    Speculating about a its possibilities as a commercial success is also a reach. It’s box office numbers could bounce harder than a basketball on an empty court. It’s all speculation, at this point. I wouldn’t be comfortable calling ANY film a lock at this point. It’s only June, but having a conversation about it, and what you predict, is perfectly normal around these parts…..

    If this is critically acclaimed, I seriously still would not know if the Oscars will embrace this film and make somewhat of a cool choice OR treat it like Drive or Baby Driver even after the critics’ picks and guild nominations are announced. What old man biopics stylized in the Weinstein Company look is in the pipeline? I can see that getting in that way.

    Can I say that I was intuitively correct about Billy being a bust before people saw it?

    Those movies skewed young. Widows is entirely grownups. McQueen is a tasteful auteur.

    Speaking of Billy Flynn, I hope Ang Lee comes back with a great film.

    So I gather Andre Holland to bail out of this project? His name kept being mentioned as part of the cast, but it’s since been taken out.

    He booked other projects.

    Gemini Man sounds awesome and with its hyped de-aging effects could be another Visual Effects winner like Life of Pi.

    Viola will not pull the category fraud again. Now that she got the Oscar she craved, she should focus on collecting these lead noms until she wins and establish herself as THE biggest black leading lady in Hollywood (which she already is tbh)

    She has to be a little unsatisfied pulling that stunt just to secure a win and in the end it’s merely supporting. No different than six other Black women before her.

    I’d say that she’s coming for an even bigger achievement when she becomes the first black actress with two Oscars. I don’t see it happening next year but it will soon enough. She’ll pull a Lange/Streep/Blanchett Whoopi : Done Halle : Done JHud : I heard she had an Aretha Franklin biopic coming up but I haven’t heard anything else about it so I’m not counting on her Mo’nique : Completely done Octavia : She could win a 2nd supporting Oscar and I’m rooting for her to get a strong leading role someday. But she’s very unlilely to win lead for now Lupita : Kinda the same than Octavia. I think she’d be a better leading lady though Viola is the most likely. I mean she literally came close twice. She was beaten the first time by Meryl and her huge overdue narrative (and extremely baity role) yet still managed to snatch half of the precursor awards. She could have won the second time but got scared into supporting by a baity acclaimed role (Jackie) and an overhyped movie (La La Land)

    Lupita has 2 new lead projects coming. An action film and a film titled US with Jordan Peele. Shes also in talks for Charlies Angels reboot. Things are really picking up for her.

    I hope so. Nothing would make me happier than seeing Lupita pick up strong leading roles
