    That was a rushed, unfinished cut that went to TIFF in 2017 because Weinstein rushed it. The film has undergone many changes and will likely be VERY different.

    That being said, I don’t think it will be an awards contender, just a better film.

    Is waves coming out this year? And isnt like a musical?

    It’s coming out this year and from what I’ve heard, it’s not a musical! It’s just a movie that incorporates music in a more unconventional way..

    I know a lot of A24’s fall releases are sites unseen but they are COMING trust me!

    I just listened to Elton John’s “Never Too Late” from The Lion King. It’s much better than Beyonce’s “Spirit” original song.

    I don’t really love either song, but Elton’s original has more of a lively upbeat production with African sounds that I imagine might be the song leading up to the credits at the end of the film.

    Between the two, “Never Too Late” has the better shot at an Oscar nomination in Original Song. Then again… the poor reviews may have killed any Oscar hopes for this film. Plus, if they want to honor Elton, they can always nominate him for the better reviewed Rocketman.

    you are crazy if you think that Elton song is better than spirt and why would bad reviews effect a best song nomination?

    Zhao Shuzhen needs to get nomination for best supporting actress for “The Farewell “

    she was excellent. I hope critics push for her at end of year.

    Best Song already has 5 very viable contenders:

    “Spirit” ~ Beyonce (Lion King)
    “Never Too Late”~ Elton (Lion King)
    “I’m Gonna Love Me Again” ~ Elton (Rocketman)
    “Speechless” (Alladin)
    “Broken & Beautiful” ~ (Ugly Dolls)

    I could see any of them get in. My preference of those are “Broken & Beautiful” and “I’m Gonna Love Me Again” and “Spirit”.

    But we’ve got songs from “Cats” and “Frozen 2” on the way… It could be a very fun race.

    Zhao Shuzhen is superb. She’s easily the best performance of the year so far. Such an amazing script; sentimental but not cloying, smart but not pretentious, moving but not manipuative. A universal story about family that could really connect. “The Farewell” is the first movie of the year I’ve loved.

    It deserves nominations for:
    Best Picture
    Best Director: Lulu Wang
    Best Actress: Awkwafina
    Best Supporting Actress: Zhao Shuzhen
    Best Supporting Actor: Tzi Ma
    Original Screenplay
    Cinematography
    Score

    Also: this screams SAG Ensemble winner.

    But goddamnit people need to actually see it in theatres, There’s like no marketing for this movie! A24 at it again.

    Though, I think The Farewell is SPECTACULAR, it really needs to breakout at the box office and get real critic support in awards season with a huge campaign from A24.

    Best Case Scenario Nominations:

    • Best Picture
    • Best Director: Lulu Wang
    • Best Actress: Awkwafina
    • Best Supp. Actress: Zhao Shuzhen
    • Best Original Screenplay
    • Best Original Score
    • Best Cinematography
    • Best Film Editing

    Worst Case Scenario Nominations:

    • none

    Realistic Prediction:

    • Best Original Screenplay

    Elton will likely push for Rocketman over Never Too Late so Spirit might be the only Lion King.

    If there’s room for an indie movie I would love love love if Glasgow from Wild Rose got in. Jessie Buckley would nail that performance.

    I agree with this except that best case scenario – I think it’s ceiling is Picture, Actress, Supporting Actress and Screenplay.

    Spirit is getting pushed more by Disney than “Never too late”. Spirit sounds like an Oscar Bait song. If any song from the Lion King will get nominated is Spirit. It was released as its own single and as of right now the most popular single.
