    Ugh, it’s a matter of hours until prediction center opens. I’m so, so freaking happy. Also, first look at News of the World

    2-time winner Mark Bridges is doing the costume design for this film. I think I know which film will be winning Best Costume Design this year.

    You guys do realize that Citizen Kane only lost because the producers of How Green Was My Valley launched an enormous campaign and basically bribed voters with free money? Voters did not “decide” Citizen Kane was worse: it was one of the most frauded Best Picture losses in the history of the academy.

    Vanessa Kirby is less well know than Felicity Jones? Umm Vanessa Kirby literally is part of two big blockbuster franchises and has an Emmy nomination and a BAFTA award.

    Felicity Jones is in fucking Star Wars.

    Neither Felicity Jones or Vanessa Kirby are known by the GP. At least not by name. I’m not sure why were arguing over which one is more well known lol.

    Felicity Jones is in fucking Star Wars.

    And was nominated for an Oscar. I don’t think either of them have a ton of name recognition, but I’d say Jones is better-known.

    Are people really predicting Regina King for a nomination over Chloe Zhao? We all know the sexist Director branch will only nominate one female maximum, and Zhao has a far better shot than King.

    Also, check yourselves if you think Fincher will lose. Director isn’t like Picture or Screenplay: it gets locked and stays locked down by one contender for the entire season, with very few exceptions. Bong Joon-Ho was the first surprise in that category since Ben Affleck’s snub.

    Are you sure it’s because they’re sexist, and not because they take the Stephen King approach to voting? And that under the Stephen King approach to voting, both Zhao and King have a better shot at getting in than any pair of female director contendors from the past decade?

    Well, there’s a lot more to Citizen Kane’s loss than How Green Was My Valley’s campaign: William Randolph Hearst used his power to smear Citizen Kane. And he was a very influential figure, so it’s understandable the voters were afraid want to touch that film with a ten-foot pole. I haven’t heard much about HGWMV’s campaign though.

    I may have been stretching the truth about the “free money” comment, but How Green Was My Valley did have a huge campaign and John Ford was just more well liked by Oscar voters. It was clearly a frauded win.

    The OP was saying that Vanessa Kirby was more well known than Felicity Jones because she had supporting roles in major blockbuster franchises, completely ignoring the fact that Felicity Jones had a leading role in a franchise that was bigger than Mission Impossible and Fast and Furious combined. I was just calling them out.

    Nobody is going into MI or F&F to see Vanessa Kirby, besides maybe GD, but iono why they’d go see those movies since there’s no lead actress in those franchise.

    Dune is not an above-the-line Oscar player either. Stop with the foolishness.

    Hmm Felicity Jones got her Oscar nomination in 2015. Are you suggesting she was more well known than Kirby at the time because she was in Star Wars (which was released a year after the 2015 Oscars)?

    Nice try.

    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).

    Leslie Odom, Jr. has an original song in One Night in Miami, he’s coming for that EGOT y’all.

    per THR

    (Odom also co-wrote and performs the beautiful original end credits song “Speak Now.”)

    If anyone is in need of the annual Amy Adams snub, it’s Diane Warren. She literally going to tie Meryl’s record of losing 12x in a row if she gets nominated.
