    NEWS:

    1917 has officially received an R rating for “violence, some disturbing images, and language.”

    What are your thoughts? To me I think this cements it as a BP front-runner by not taking the somewhat-tame Dunkirk route. Even the article agrees with me:

    Although there’s no reported budget on 1917, the R-rating cements the movie as a prestige awards play for Universal…

    This aligns with early screening buzz, so I’m not surprised it’s R.

    1917 does seem like a big Oscars push. I won’t call it a front-runner until reviews, but a film that looks like a one-shot, is R-rated, and is prestige seems like a big contender on paper.

    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

    Pretty sure Avengers will just end up taking the VFX Oscar to celebrate its box office achievement/record and an arguably overdue award since Marvel lost this category more times than Glenn Close has lost an Oscars.

    I’ve been thinking this too…

    And a Marvel (or DC) film hasn’t won this category since Spider-Man 2. A film literally released during the first Bush administration.

    I’m still predicting Bong Joon-Ho to win Director. The award has been super biased towards POC and Goreign director, his film will be the critics favorite this year like Roma was last year, and it will have to walk away with at least one major award besides International Film.

    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
    Best Supporting Actress: Thomasin McKensie, Cho Yeo-Jeong
    Best Adapted Screenplay: Jojo Rabbit, Joker
    Best Original Screenplay: Parasite, Ford v Ferrari

    God, all these Parasite predictions in BP are really starting to get my hopes up; if it ends up not happening, I will hold all of you accountable for my severe disappointment.

    If Roma and Amour can happen I don’t see why Parasite can’t. It has the buzz. And the Academy seems to be looking to be more diverse in recent years.

    I’m picking him as well. It’s a hunch for now but I can think of all kinds of reasons the path is cleared for him.

    I think if anything topples The Irishman for Best Picture, it will be either Queen & Slim or 1917. None of the other current contenders (The Farewell, Marriage Story, Joker, Ford v Ferrari, JoJo Rabbit, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Little Women) seem like they have enough steam to win Best Picture over The Irishman. If I had to pick one of those, it would be JoJo Rabbit, which seems like the biggest heartwarming hopeful crowd pleaser of the potential nominees.

    The first trailer for Klaus was bad, but I think that might be the song choice more than anything. I think the film has a good shot at a Best Animated Film nomination. Members of the animated branch might be excited to be voting on a American 2D animated film, and this seems like it might get a big push from Netflix for a Oscar nod.

    LOL. I see #FilmTwitter and Oscar pundits never change. Looks like Bombshell is the “Mary Poppins Returns” and “Carol” of this year. First screenings and apparently it’s a HUGE Oscar contender, with multiple nominations lined up, including Best Picture. And 2 Acting wins assured.

    And yet they ignore who the demographic and target audience for this film is supposed to be. The steak-eaters and male driven Academy members are apparently just gonna go GAGA over this film. And female voters are just gonna eat up this film about THESE specific women.

    It’s not VICE. Stop comparing it to VICE. A male lead dramedy satire film about well-known MALE politicians directed by It-boy Adam McKay starring beloved MALE actors is not comparable to a female lead film about a group of unlikable, problematic women in the already problematic #MeToo era. The subject matter addressed in the film is dicey, the women at the forefront of the story are extremely problematic and unlikable, and any rooting factor for the cause is thrown out the window when you realise WHO you are actually rooting for and who you are supposed to feel sympathy for.

    Can’t wait to see this ridiculousness play out. And for pundits to later on shrug and say: “Well, how were we supposed to know. On paper it looked like a contender”. SMH

    Ah that’s a shame… Think I’ll replace it with Weathering With You on my predictions, thanks!
