    My list is pretty similar to Foolio’s, except less organised/ thorough. The only one’s of the bunch I’d argue have a better chance than you’re saying right now are Minari, C’mon C’mon and Soul. I also have French Dispatch up closer to front runners for now, largely just because of the prestige associated with the cast/ Anderson.

    I’m here to stan Dune but I would love to see both Dune and Tenet as Top 5 (means they get in for Director, Scripts and Editing and Dune has a shot at Supporting Actress – Ferguson and Actor – Stellan or Bardem). Dune should be good for SAG Ensemble nom at least. I think it’s totally doable even though it’s gonna be tough for WB to get 2 sci fi in. But stranger things happened.

    Tenet will be scuppered by its release date and will likely be marketed as a sinner blockbuster rather than an awards contender. It might sneak in a few places but WB will likely focus on getting Dune in if it’s well received. I think they’re more concerned about BO than awards for Tenet.

    Agreed. all studios are now going crazy over COVID-19 so boxoffice is a priority to movies coming out in the first half of the year.

    I still don’t think betting tgat big on Dune is a smart idea. Tenet will likely get Picture, Director, Screenplay, and Editing noms though, and possibly a non for Pattinson since he’s overdue for recognition. Nolan films don’t usually get acting noms though (Ledger aside), so I wouldn’t bet on that.
