    I was wondering that exact thing myself. I don’t know.

    After looking, the only instance I could find was Cate Blanchett winning in 2007 for I’m Not There, which was the first year they gave out the award. Since then, no one has been nominated and plenty of films that won the award included performances that should have easily made it? It seems like a legit rule but I can’t find it written verbatim anywhere.

    That looks like a clear indication. And I find they often hide their rules in an inaccessible vault so they can keep us in the dark lest they change their minds or break one of their own rules when it’s an advantage for them.

    hmm interesting. To be honest that could be an easy cop out for the Indies, I’d much rather the cast be nominated in their categories.

    I could see something like Waves or The Farewell also getting the Robert Altman award instead of Marriage Story

    Their voting pattern is pretty inconsistent, I mean Suspiria won last year so they might find Marriage Story too mainstream. But it really does scream “ensemble” sort of like Moonlight and Spotlight did, so maybe? Idk, we’ll see. This website will be a mess if it doesn’t win and ScarJo gets snubbed again lol.

    Based on what little evidence we have I’ll be keeping that in mind before predicting anyone.

    Had a look on the indie spirits website and saw a host of The Report ads. I also found out, the cast basically did it pro bono and got paid very little because the budget was only $8M. It could get an ensemble award too!

    Is the nomination reveal date on the 16th or 21st? I’m seeing people say both so I’m kinda confused.

    From their official rule book:

    “Thus., Nov. 21, 2019 Nominations announced.”

    I thought the rule for Robert Altman award was that if a particular movie wins, they are not nominated in acting categories. Usually award goes to a big cast, that’s why I thought of A marriage story.

    She better be nominated.

    Oscar FYC - Lupita Nyong'o & Elisabeth Moss ("Us") - Best Actress & Supporting Actress. It must happen; otherwise the Tethered are coming.
