With Black Panther’s success, there could be a small chance for Avengers as a dark horse contender.March 11, 2019 at 5:36 pm #1202812930
I think Star Wars IX, Avengers: Endgame, and The Lion King have a chance.

I could see Clemency having an outside chanceMarch 11, 2019 at 8:33 pm #1202813037
Star Wars has no chance.March 11, 2019 at 9:19 pm #1202813060
I am a little weary of predicting Best Picture nominees so early, having seen how those early predicted films of 2018 fared, like First Man and Mary, Queen of Scots.
But I am looking forward to The Irishman, The Laundromat, The Report, The Woman in the Window and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, though the anticipated controversy of the latter makes me wonder whether it would be like Vice this year.
I wonder how Gerwig will do with Little Women, with two very good adaptations already out there (1933, 1994). Hope she doesn’t update it too much, which was my biggest gripe with Lady Bird, the lead character felt like a 2017 adult in a 2005 teenager’s body, and quite unrealistic. Yet, if she doesn’t then what is the point of a retread?
Also I don’t think Us has the legs to be an award season contender.March 12, 2019 at 7:45 am #1202813600
Clemency doesn’t have distribution yet, so we aren’t including it in the contenders round-up.
We did add Motherless Brooklyn.
What about the other films that Counselor mentioned? Do they have release dates?March 12, 2019 at 9:13 am #1202813725This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.March 12, 2019 at 1:19 pm #1202813989
What about Reed Morano’s The Rhythm Section? It has a very awards-friendly release date. Joe Talbot’s The Last Black Man in San Francisco has already been getting some buzz as well.
Also Marjane Satrapi’s Radioactive could well be a major player, but I don’t know if it has a distributor yet.March 12, 2019 at 2:19 pm #1202814157This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.
