    I thought this deserved its own thread. There top contenders are The Meyerowitz Stories, First They Killed My Father, Outmr Souls at Night, and Mudbound.

    First they Killed my Father- Foreign Film

    Mudbound- Screenplay, Costumes, Mary J Blige

    The Meyerowitz Stories- Adam Sandler

    Mudbound’s only chance will probably be Screenplay because adapted is so weak this year. I don’t see it breaking through in any acting categories or Picture as of now.

    If they can’t get Dustin Hoffman nominated for Supporting Actor, they should stop playing the Oscar game and focus solely on TV/Emmys.

    For some reason, I just don’t like the idea of Netflix at the Oscars. Their films should just compete at the Emmys as TV movies or something. Like HBO. I don’t know. I almost feel this way about Amazon as well but I think they have a much better business model in how they distribute film versus television. I’m probably alone in thinking this, but I just don’t like it. Oh well.

    That being said I loved The Meyerowitz Stories, First They Killed My Father, and can’t wait to see Mudbound but still… #TeamAlmodóvar.

    Not while they don’t release their films in theaters before streaming as Amazon. Netflix movies are TV movies, with cinema quality, but they’re not cinema.

    I watched Mudbound and it was stellar. I recommend watching in a theatre if you can. I will be shocked if it doesn’t get a nomination for adapted screenplay with such a strong contender in such a weak category. The screenplay was amazing. Garret Hedlund and Jason Mitchell were both Oscar worthy as well.

    Totally agree. It looks like as if Netflix is bullying the academy in accepting their business model. But then, do we really need the Oscars anymore? Then we could skip the Oscars and do one large ceremony in honoring both tv shows and movies. Its simply unfair if both their movies are eligible at the oscars and emmys. Having said that, dokumentaries are allready eligible at both ceremonies. I just feel that if the academy is going to accept Netflix sooner or later we will lose the cinemas for good. Obviously the movies, Netflix produced, should not be punished for their business model and of course its important that Netflix is helping these directors to get their movies made.

    You do realize major studios have harmed themselves handing over financing for prestige material to their indie off brands (Focus, Searchlight, Classics) — so specialty houses like A24 and streaming services are picking up the slack. Netflix is being improper in their handling of Oscar intended material but the fact they’re a streaming service should not disqualify them.

    I didn’t say that, just that they should be competing for Emmys. I don’t get how a television streaming service releases movies that aren’t supposed to be considered television movies. Especially with no exclusive theatrical release at first. I guess HBO and Lifetime and whoever else should just start screening their movies in a single LA theater and then go win Oscars too if television movies should be competing for film awards now.

    Movies should be disqualified if they stream and go theatrical simultaneously. And no everyone isn’t going to get their made for TV movie into theaters for Oscar recognition. Netflix acquires real auteur titles. They’re producing Scorsese’s next movie.

    The Ridiculous 6, Sandy Wexler, The Fundamentals of Caring, Pee Wee’s Big Holiday.. yes very prestigious. And from the directors who brought you Suicide Squad, V/H/S, Terminator: Salvation, Movie 43.. yes quite the auteurs.

    Really though, they’re not necessarily known for their high quality, original films. The fact that they buy any film, good or bad, shows that they’re only serious about the money. At least with Amazon, they had Manchester by the Sea and approached awards season in a certain way in order to be taken seriously. Meanwhile Netflix just throws shit against the wall to see if it sticks.

    I don’t think it’ll be a problem for them if they have an undeniable candidate that can sail through the season like Amazon did with Manchester.

    If not, I think people will always be bitchy about Netflix like it happened with Idris Elba and Beasts.

    They did manage to get in with 13th last year so there’s that. You’ll have to wait and see what Mudbound does.

    They’ll need a huge campaign to get somewhere with Sandler.

    They Globes already have Angelina’s film on their list, let’s not kid ourselves. They nominated her other foreign film too. So it’ll be a nice boost, but who knows what those Foreign Film voters will do for the Oscars.

    I don’t understand why they can’t play the game right instead of trying so hard to change things and screw themselves in the process. Play your fucking film for a week in LA and NY like the rules say and then stream it for everybody else the week after.

    They won’t insult anyone with that considering how long it takes for some “real” movies to reach an audience outside of those markets.

    I’m sure somewhere out there Linda Fiorentino is pissed about this.
