    Maybe one of Ma Rainey and Hillbilly Elegy are duds? Netflix isn’t pushing four contenders and I think they’ll push Kirby and Loren regardless considering the buzz.

    Netflix paid $45 million for Hillbilly Elegy, which is marginally more than the budget for Da 5 Bloods for reference. I don’t think they’re going to abandon it. Can’t find info on Ma Rainey.

    rubbish

    Sam Mendes obviously should have been the runner up. 1917 was an achievement in filmmaking. Tarantino did nothing special with OUATIH, it’s not even in his top 3.

    If any more stuff gets moved there’ll be no room in the release schedule for anything that was due to come out in 2021. I fully expect to see some things end up in 2022 – whether that’s stuff originally intended for this year or for next.

    Not much to add, but I agree with both of these.

    Mendes was the worst in the lineup

    I think we’re underestimating Ron Howard and Aaron Sorkin.

    About Hillbilly Elegy: I have a strange feeling about this movie. Ron Howard flirts with both brilliance (Apollo 13, Ransom, A Beautiful Mind, Cinderella Man or Frost/Nixon) and disaster (The Missing, Angels & Demons, The Dilemma, In the Heart of the Sea or Inferno) too often.
    As for Aaron Sorkin… I guess you’re right about underestimating him, but I’ll always see him more as a writer than a director. Still, I’m already predicting Fincher and Lee from Netflix productions and a 3rd Best Director nod for the streaming giant sounds unlikely to me when they have other more interesting picks (Shaka King, Regina King, Lee Isaac Chung or Wes Anderson if The French Dispatch gets released in time)

    I’ve never underestimate Ron Howard, and I won’t, ever.

    Yum. Except now the second round nominees are jury based and not whole Academy based which makes me wonder if we’ll see BAFTA go leftfield and nominated multiple Jessie Buckleys and Maggie Smiths this year.

    Great news about 6 acting nominees (not sure about 10 British film ones though). I feel quite confident in saying that Davis, Kirby and McDormand are definitely in at BAFTA now.

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", GLENN CLOSE FOR "HILLBILLY ELEGY", ANTHONY HOPKINS FOR "THE FATHER", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    I’m not fan of a 6 nominees change lmao. I’m praying Oscars don’t follow with it.

    Also half of the names on Director longlist must be female, which is frankly a ridiculous rule.

    The last time they had them was for the 2011 film season. Bates and Cotillard were there for Midnight in Paris.

    I actually think this is fine? I mean, the nominees will be six at the end so if the voters believe the six best films happen to be directed by men; those will get in. It’s a great rule to give more visibility to female directed films.

    Hopefully the new rules open the door to more inspiring choices made by BAFTA again. It’s been a long time.

    These are also so much fun, personal favourite is double Pfeiffer in supporting 07 (Hairspray & Stardust).

    Are you kidding me???

    Mendes didn’t absolutely deserve the win or the runner-up position, it was just a gimmicky run of the mill war action movie of the moment that aged already pretty badly compared to actual masterworks of that same year (which hold up and get better after repeated viewings) like Parasite, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, The Irishman, Marriage Story, The Lighthouse, Uncut Gems, Portrait of A Lady On Fire, etc…

    A cheap stunt, not an incredible technical achievement at all, a bad rip-off of other films who nailed the technical aspect much better like Rope, Russian Ark, Gravity, Birdman, The Revenant, La La Land, Roma, etc…
    It was like seeing a bad copy of films like Saving Private Ryan, The Revenant, and Dunkirk.
    No one among the industry was passionate to even give Mendes a Directing win, it totally benefited from being a late breaker in the shortened awards season, that’s why it won the Globes and swept the Guilds, if it was a normal awards season, it would have never won PGA and DGA, and garnered all that attention at the time.

    Bong rightly won Directing, as it should have since the beginning, and if it was out of the equation, Scorsese or Tarantino should have taken the gold.
