    The Lighthouse has a lot of people talking about it.  It’s a seriously buzzy film with a ton of positive word of mouth.  The Oscar voters will watch it.

    He’s going to be this year’s shocking win and snatch that award from shirtless Brad Pitt.

    Also, good thing The Lighthouse is a drama not a horror film.

    Funny thing is, I think he’s getting nominated. If The Lighthouse was a drama, I’d predict him for a win. But it’s not.

    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.

    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.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best Picture: Parasite, Jojo Rabbit, Joker, Ford v Ferrari
    Best Director: Bong-Joon Ho, Taika Waititi, Todd Phillips
    Best Actor: Joaquin Phoenix, Robert Pattinson, Roman Griffin Davis, Christian Bale
    Best Actress: Lupita Nyong'o
    Best Supporting Actor: Willem Dafoe, Song Kang-Ho, Sam Rockwell, Al Pacino
    Best Supporting Actress: Thomasin McKensie, Cho Yeo-Jeong
    Best Adapted Screenplay: Jojo Rabbit, Joker
    Best Original Screenplay: Parasite, Ford v Ferrari

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

    For Your Consideration:

    Best Picture: Weathering With You, Parasite, The Lighthouse
    Best Supporting Actor: Willem Dafoe - The Lighthouse
    Best Animated Feature: Weathering With You, Promare
    Best International Film: Weathering With You, Parasite

    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.
