    Parasite has the same issue as Roma; foreign language. Thus, nominate it in Foreign Language Film

    Because we all know a Foreign Language film cannot be considered one of the best films of the year. That’d be ridiculous!

    Six nominees; no more, no less. 3 mainstream, 3 arthouse-rs Mainstream: Endgame, Frozen II, Rise of Skywalker (ONLY if latter 2 are mid-high 90’s on RT and are boxoffice megahits) Arthouse: Us, 1917, The Farewell.

    I cannot possibly imagine a worst lineup

    I’m not from the states, so I have found very curious that Peanut Butter Falcon has been one of the indie hits of the year, a crowd pleaser with good reviews and a known cast but has zero traction.
    Can anyone tell me why?
    I would appreciate a constructive answer…
    Thanx

    Buzz. I know that buzz is all relative, and it moves up and down, but even the contenders that lose buzz at least had it at one point. It is strange that it had such good box office numbers and that no one is really talking about it, but it’s unfortunately true. And while Shia and Dakota are big names, they’ve never really been big awards names, so people looking to watch movies that they can vote for for awards won’t really think of them (no matter how deserving they are).

    To be fair, I don’t think Parasite being a foreign language film will hurt it getting nominated for Best Picture, but I don’t think it will win Best Picture.  Parasite will win Foreign Language, but it won’t win Best Picture in such a strong year.  They’ll want to spread the wealth around a bit.

    It should be open for at least a few days in late November. The Netflix comment is a boycott. Lol. The only sure winner, and ima gonna say it again, is Thelma Schoonmaker. The other nominees will be honoured just to be in the same room with her. I’m not as confident about the win.

    It’s already in theaters.  It’s not getting wider than this.  Same with Marriage Story.

    Schoonmaker could win, but I really didn’t care for the editing in The Irishman.  Oddly enough, JoJo might have the best editing of all the contenders.  Editing is important in comedy and there’s some interesting stuff there.  Parasite also has phenomenal editing.

    The Irishman is just a quantity over quality movie.  It has moments of brilliance and moments that are only ok.  It’s a pretty inconsistent movie, IMO.

    oh this is valid but suggesting foreign language film shouldn’t be eligible in Best Picture just to make room for Frozen 2 anything Kristen Bell is in is one of the dumbest suggestions I’ve read on these threads.

    It doesn’t open anywhere near where I am until the 27th.
    And if I’m wrong about Thelma, then I’ve woken up in an alternate universe. Like Shrek

    ETA: your opinion on her work will have no relevance.

    Darling, I know you love me. You all do. We may be in a BDSM relationship. That’s all. Oh and get ready for Clownery to get snubbed.

    Parasite is 2019’s highest grossing foreign language movie in North America.

    It has made $115 million against it’s $4 million budget.

    A total commercial success also alongside being 2019’s best reviewed and raved movie.

    Ok, but her editing isn’t great and it’s hitting Netflix on the 27th, it’s not hitting theaters then.  Her other work is good, but I didn’t like it here and I think I noticed several continuity issues.

    I came off rather abruptly; you’re entitled to your opinion and it’s none of my business. But nobody in that branch will agree with you.

    ETA. Thanks for knowing the area where I live and what’s playing better than I do.

    The Irishman is something else. A masterpiece with heartbreaking moment of cinema. A goodbye, in many ways. It would make the best BP winner of the last – at least – 10 years.
