    But it is though.

    It’s not a straight drama. It’s a weird genre mix.

    Willem Dafoe got nominated for no1curr movies back-to-back so I’m not doubting his power/respect/likability in the acting branch. I highly doubt that spills over to other categories though. He’ll be a nice filler and that’s it.

    My issue with The Lighthouse is that is feels like a chore to watch.

    How so? I thought it was a very entertaining (and often funny) watch, although I probably have a blacker sense of humor than the Academy at large.

    My issue with The Lighthouse is that is feels like a chore to watch.

    I think the second half of the film definitely has some massive pacing issues, and an ending that almost goes in a really unsatisfying left turn (the A24 ending, if you will). That being said, I still thought this movie was pretty fun and engaging. It definitely didn’t feel like a chore.

    You must have some fun chores with a lot of bold personality and character interactions then.

    Had the same reaction throughout most of it. It is a punishing exercise in the eccentric and esoteric.

    Beloved actors win for “the wrong film” a lot.
    I felt LH lost it’s way at times but it’s more than possible the voters won’t care.
    So sometimes when you’re dealing with an actor with the talent like Dafoe the vehicle is incidental.

    It doesn’t matter what they think of the movie. I didn’t care for The Lighthouse, but I thought Dafoe was undeniably brilliant. My 62 year old mother saw it and hated it, but said that Dafoe gave “the single greatest performance that she has ever seen.” I could see some people hating the film, but still voting for Dafoe.

    Your mom has good taste.

    A huge problem Dafoe will face is visibility. I don’t see many voters putting The Lighthouse as a priority to watch meanwhile Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and The Irishman will both compete and possibly win other above the line categories so therefore many will see them. That alone gives Pitt and Pacino an advantage.

    I agree that’s a barrier. But it isn’t that rare for voters to not watch everything they should. Word of mouth, critical reception, friends blah blah blah all play a part.
    But I think if anyone can take down Brad (loved him here) it’s Dafoe.

    Shia Labeouf is apparently brilliant in “Honey Boy” and so is the movie which he wrote himself.

    You say that like it’s a bad thing. 🙁

    I take your point, though the way I see it (and this might not be a popular view) The Lighthouse doesn’t outweird something like There Will Be Blood by all that much, except that the former has more surrealism. That’s not an idle comparison either as both feature half-crazed performances with passages of dense prose, though Anderson’s film had the Oscar-season advantage of being a neo-Western in an annus mirabilis for that genre.
