    I have some good news for you! They added Knives Out to Lionsgate’s FYC website, so they’re no longer just campaigning Bombshell. A screenplay nod would be nice.

    Yes! Maybe Knives Out can still get that Screenplay nod. We’ll have to see how it does at the box office.

    For Your Consideration

    Best Actor: Joaquin Phoenix
    Best Actress: Scarlett Johansson

    I recant any post where I said “Frozen II” was going to receive any nominations or wins. As much as “Toy Story 4” let me down – this installment did that 10x over (despite being some of the best animation I’ve ever seen). There’s 5 songs in the first twenty minutes. The script has huge plot holes and I found myself dozing multiple times. It’s also so humorless. What a waste.

    Regarding Richard Jewell, I think if The Mule couldn’t become a late-season breaker, I don’t expect this film to do so either. The Mule was a pretty great film actually.

    Warner did not campaign The Mule per Eastwood’s request not take resources from Bradley’s movie A Star is Born.

    I believe The Mule got the due success it deserved, as it had good box office. It wasn’t bad, but it should not have been an awards contender as some here wanted.

    I’ve read a few reviews and they seem to be really liking Richard Jewell with all the performances being lauded as well as the script and direction (to a lesser extent.)

    Eastwood is always hard to predict, as you can never truly tell whether we are getting a ‘Million Dollar Baby’ or a ‘The Mule.’ If Richard Jewell keeps this momentum, maybe it could secure a filler nom in picture, maybe adapted screenplay, and maybe best actress? Director and Actor are just too full right now.

    Supporting Actress not Best Actress for Kathy Bates in Richard Jewell.

    But that wasn’t confirmed until the studio announced it.

    Jewell is a true ensemble movie. Now if Bates were Streep she’d be privilege to pursue Best Actress for a campaign but once you see the movie she is the most supporting of the entire cast.

    I’m just happy that she won’t be subjected to name calling such as “greedy” and “selfish” And that would happen if she was placed as Lead.

    Just returned from watching the Irishman and I’m rooting for it in ALL categories it’s qualified in. I wouldn’t mind if OUATIW beats in in best picture or director, but I won’t see any of them winning in that category, both are way too good for the Oscars.

    Al Pacino was brilliant and must win for supporting actor. Same as De Niro. If Marrige Story beats him it will be a totally shame. That phone call scene… damn

    Theatrical Cut was 2hr 40 mins so 21mins additional scene makes it 3hrs 2 mins or so.

    Considering GreenBook won BP last year.I seriously think Ford v Ferrari can win Picture and Screenplay.

    -Ford vs Ferrari is a serious crowd-pleaser
    -It will do serious numbers at domestic box office(140-160)if not so much
    at international box office.
    -It is well made movie about true story
    -Old Voters will totally love it
    -It is last Big Budget Original movie made by Fox before it was sold.I
    think Academy would like giving this one mega studio one last win.

    So I saw Irishman and Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.

    Irishman will go down in the books as a classic no matter what happens at award shows. I suspect people will look back and say: This did not win BP?! when some more easily digestible film takes it. DeNiro is subtly heartbreaking. Pacino could win. Pesci is alright but he did not do much for me other than play off his typecast, wasnt in it enough. This is probably easily winning Editing as it is 3 and half hours but never felt like it. I am very interested in seeing how awards bodies react going forward.

    Beautiful Day was pretty good too. Heller and the writers did such a great job creating their own little world so it wasnt just a Mr Rogers biopic. But the issue I had with it was that you had to buy into Rhys character who was pretty much an ahole. It was so predictable what happens to him. Hanks is alright but there are no knockout moments like in Captain Phillips. It is more akin to his Saving Mr Banks role to be honest. I dont think he’ll have passion for top 5 at end of the day.

    Just saw Marriage Story and expect it to be nominated for BP, Actor, Actress, Screenplay, and Score. I am not convinced that Laura Dern will be nominated for what for me was a solid performance but nothing all that special. I am also not convinced that Noah Bambaugh will get a Best Director nomination with the maverick Director’s branch potentially going in other directions. I thought the movie was generally excellent but had flaws – navel-gazing, the show business milieu, a lack of visual techniques (all solid but nothing awards worthy about it). I expect Driver to win Best Actor and I think the screenplay will win. (Very much like Manchester-by-the-Sea 3 years ago).
