    Will Boyhood be too experimental for the Academy?

    I think so, yes. I also don’t think it’ll be commercially successful enough either.

    If Before Midnight couldn’t get in I’d be surprised to see Boyhood get in. I’ve said it before in other threads but it applies here, the academy has shown repeatedly that with admittedly the occasional juno-esque exception, they just do not like movies about teenagers (which this will be for at least half the movie) no matter how acclaimed they are

    I hope it will. I am amazed that Linklater gets so little recognition from the Academy. I think Boyhood will have to get massive critical support (which I think it will – even the UK critics who reviewed this very American story are calling it a masterpiece and calling Linklater the American Truffaut).

    I doubt if it will be a box office success – but look at the paltry grosses of a film like Nebraska. Nebraska’s a very good film. Before Midnight is a great one.

    Linklater doesn’t seem to be trendy enough for Hollywood. He’s so low key and doesn’t seem into making advertisements for himself like so many other cinematic show-offs. I read he has been trying to do a “spiritual sequel” to Dazed and Confused and can’t get the financing.

    Fingers crossed that he, Delpy and Hawke will get the adapted screenplay Oscar.

    I see this as a film that might get more press than Before Midnight, though. Could help.
