    I’m stunned Portrait of a Lady on Fire didn’t make the shortlist for International film.

    France didn’t submit that and their submission made the shortlist.

    Amazon did send over some people to France to campaign for Les Miserables. Make of that what you will.

    Best Picture: Parasite

    Didn’t think The Painted Bird would make the international list. That is a nice surprise.

    So the panel proved my theory that Instinct’s subject matter was far too advanced and evolved for close-minded US audiences. I’m happy Corpus Christi made it though.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
    Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)

    Why doesn’t the Academy reveal the entire list of submissions of the two music categories anymore?

    I’m really happy that Us made it onto the Original Score shortlist.

    I’ve seen two of the Live Action shortlisted films, and while one (MILLER & SON) is fine but fairly predictable, THE NEIGHBORS’ WINDOW is very good. It’s directed by Marshall Curry (three-time nominee in the doc categories–feature & short) and it’s his first fiction film. Really well done and hands-down better than anything in this category last year.

    Woman falls for a prisoner is not novel nor provocative.

    Not completely sure why, but it ended last year when they introduced the shortlists in those categories. Apparently the Music Branch used to go from the submission list straight to the nominations in a single stage; now it’s a two-stage voting process, though only Music Branch members vote in both stages.

    how do these work? if a movie comes out after shortlists are announced but in time for eligibility, can they just not be nominated?

    If they don’t make the shortlist, they can’t be nominated; it doesn’t matter when the movie is released as long as it’s in the eligibility period (i.e., released in 2018 or 2019 and opened in an LA County theater during 2019). For example, Variety leaked last week that Regina Spektor’s “One Little Soldier” from Bombshell wasn’t submitted for BOS, but made no mention of “Beautiful Ghosts”. Since “Beautiful Ghosts” was a highly anticipated entry in the BOS race but Variety didn’t mention it, more than likely it was submitted but didn’t make the initial cut for the shortlist.

    Darlings, Thatcher is happy. Paind and Glory made the shortlists and Cat Swift didn’t. It smells like a good Oscar year, dear citizens.

    As a famous singer said, "ain't nobody gonna Thatcher, Thatcher, Thatcher!"

    HELL YESSS and Us qualifies for Original Song. HELLLLLL YESSSSSS!!! I hope it takes it.
    Here’s my guesses:

    Foreign Language
    Atlantics, Senegal
    Honeyland, North Macedonia
    Les Miserables, France
    Pain and Glory, Spain
    Parasite, South Korea

    Original Score
    1917
    Joker
    The King
    Marriage Story
    Us

    Original Song
    Frozen II, Into the Unknown
    Harriet, Stand Up
    Parasite, A Glass of Soju
    Rocketman, Love Me Again
    The Lion King, Spirit

    Makeup
    Bombshell
    Dolemite is My Name
    Downton Abbey
    Joker
    Rocketman

    Visual Effects
    1917
    Alita: Battle Angel
    Avengers::: Endgame
    The Irishman
    The Lion King

    My opinions will change but all I care about is Avengers: Endgame, Us and Parasite!!! And, I watched The King and I thought its music was excellent (but I don’t really care if it makes it or not).

    I just love movies. And awards.
