Yeah Lupita was always going to be the only one happening this year for horror, but you gotta root for Florence Pugh when you can.

Also, with respect to OUATIH, I know we’re all predicting it across the board, but some of the critics I follow and respect (for instance Matt Neglia and his crew at NBP) seem to think it’s only going to land in screenplay and maybe a few techs. They obviously have their sources, but I’m just curious about the apprehension because on paper the film looks incredible.
I’m wondering if any of you have any information on how the movie actually is and whether our predictions make sense. Is it just QT’s response about Margot that is causing the doubt? IMO, what he said and how he acted wasn’t even bad. Even if people were deeply offended somehow, I seriously doubt that’s the reason voters would tank it. Is the movie just not that great? Would love to hear from someone who knows something I don’t.
This would be a shocking turn of events given the extreme buzz around the film…June 21, 2019 at 5:51 am #1202946558

the tea has been spilled; Jojo Rabbit/The Aeronauts have now been added to my predictions.
That is the truth.

I’m having trouble rationalizing Redmayne and Jones getting in for the Aeronauts. Jones is a very one-note actress and Redmayne isn’t exactly the next DDL. Likewise, the premise of the film doesn’t seem like something AMPAS is going to gravitate towards. I find their sudden surge into predictions to be baffling. It is June, I guess…June 23, 2019 at 6:48 pm #1202949143
Kathy Bates booked a supporting part in the new Clint Eastwood. Since he shoots fast it’ll be done by the end of the year. And likely won’t be contending this season. Although you never know how well the finished product is.

That trailer looks amazing, but this is definitely going to upset some people.

Queen and Slim looks exciting and hopefully will do well at the box office but like Widows I think it’ll be too genre for the Oscars for acting awards. An Original Screenplay nom for Lena Waithe is very possible, maybe Best Picture too. Daniel could get a BAFTA nomination. I’d put money on him being a contender in 2021 for Jesus Is My Homeboy.June 24, 2019 at 9:00 am #1202949705
I really think people are underestimating queen and slim. After I saw the trailer I was mind blown. That almost never happens. Lena Waithe is definitely getting nominated but I think Daniel Kaluuya could get in this year especially after not getting in for widowsJune 24, 2019 at 2:28 pm #1202950256
I agree looks fantastic. Dealing with a hot button issue and given the talent behind it and having the backing of a major studio like Universal backing it I have no doubt it will deal with it with great nuance. However given the bullshit controversy that was Targeted at First Man by the Right last year for the lack of an American flag I can only imagine a film that deals with the killing of a cop is going to Stir up a lot of heat against it
