    Quentin Tarantion made news for all the wrong reasons last week when his appearance at a rally protesting police brutality sparked calls for a boycott of his new movie “The Hateful Eight.”

    Will this brewing controversy boil over just as awards season kicks into high gear?

    Don’t forget the impending ‘nigger’ onslaught and backlash that is about happen.

    He will not be forgiven so easily this time around.

    It definitely won’t help. I might still predict that H8 will get major nods, but I certainly don’t think it’ll be a strong frontrunner in any of them. Although, I’m becoming less and less optimistic about its chances

    I think it will affect him. He might have just cost himself some nominations.

    If enough conservatives boycott the movie along with the cops it could hurt the box office, but aren’t the Academy mostly liberal (at least moderately)? In any case I don’t think it will hurt the film in terms of nominations because the individual branches will want to recognise specific contributions, and unless it’s a critical/commercial disappointment it should have enough passion votes to get it into Best Picture.

    The only thing wrong with the rally was its unfortunate timing, and I think many (but not all) voters will agree.

    I don’t think it’ll affect him at all. Anyone who remembers to “boycott” Hateful Eight by the time it comes out wasn’t going to see it anyway. No one else cares.

    This exactly. We are over a month away from the release, the marketing push hasn’t even started yet, and this will be so easily forgotten by anyone who doesn’t already hate Tarantino.

    The reason I think Tarantino can weather this kind of storm is because his film already spark a bit of controversy and the headlines don’t seem that out of the ordinary. If similar things were being written about, say, Spielberg or Russell I think voters would be more likely to pay attention. As it is, I doubt they’re even reading about it.

    This whole boycott is ridiculously stupid. Cops should be spending their time on more important things, like being less racist.

    I don’t think so, Harvey knows how to milk free publicity.

    It better not. It would be stupid for an American citizen using their 1st amendment right of freedom of protest to cost him awards for a movie that has nothing to do with Tarantino’s personal beliefs

    You’re asking, so I’m not holding back.

    Quentin’s ‘language’ with his sharp tongue without bullets, said what is true. Why should he ‘apologize’ for saying what is true? (no need to answer this….lol)

    Whatever statement he submits wont be abject and tail under his butt. It needed to be said. Prove that what he’s saying is “slanderous”. HA.

    I was going to see this anyways. Now, I’m going even if I’m dead.

    This police boycott could actually do the exact opposite. I could see many Acaemy voters rallying behind Tarantino and this ridiculous boycott. His friends like Jamie Foxx are rallying behind him.Filmmakers don’t like to be controlled by politics and boycotts.

     If anything hurts him it will be that interview with Bret Easton Ellis but he seems to already be going into damage control for that.

    MINNEAPOLIS — So far in 2015, U.S. police killed 776 people, 161 of whom were completely unarmed at the time of their death.

    The data was compiled by The Guardian for a project called “The Counted,” a continuously updated, interactive database of police killings in the United States. Based on their figures, police have killed, on average, about three people per day so far this year. The Counted database is the most comprehensive information available on police killings, since no U.S. government agency maintains a similar listing.

    Police killings in America have sparked a national movement for police reform, especially since the death of Mike Brown last year in Ferguson, Missouri.

    Who should apologize to whom?

    (Just in case there is someone out there who doesn’t get it, the police should apologize to Quentin Tarantino for their insincere outrage, particularly as they are fully aware of their own numerous failings.)

    The most murderous police force in the world should have to face the truth,  and  who better to depict that fact than one of America’s greatest directors?
    It takes great courage to tell the truth, and truly, most people cannot/will not accept it if it challenges their mainstream ontology.

    Does anyone think this “controversy” will negatively affect the box office?  Not a chance.   Nominations maybe, but I don’t think Tarantino gives a rat’s patootie.
