Tell that to Sam Smith’s Oscar win
To this day I still feel like “Til It Happens To You” was robbed

Has anyone seen the trailer for Emma which is the new adaptation of Jane Austen’s same-titled novel starring Anya Taylor-Joy? I got the Grand Budapest Hotel vibes while watching it.January 18, 2020 at 7:47 am #1203290568
Based on the story–which is actually quite interesting, Driver might actually be supporting and it won’t be fraud depending on how it’s played. Damon’s character could be lead with Driver’s character (Jacques LeGros being supporting to his). The story as reported was really badly done. It’s not even remotely as misogynistic as it appears. It’s an interesting piece of history and if written and directed well could provide some fantastic, meaty character work for all actors involved in a great film. As for Annette, all I know is that Holy Motors, Carax’s last film, is absolutely adored. This is his first English language film, musicals (despite Cats‘ flop performance) are in, Cotillard won an Oscar for playing a singer, Driver’s been nominated two years running and got praise beyond for his performance during his singing in his last Oscar-nominated role. So, yeah, both films are up in the air for an Oscar nom. This could be a case of Annette and The Last Duel being like The Report and Marriage Story all over again. Or as I said above, Driver might possibly be looking at two noms, best actor for Annette, and supporting for TLD. Regardless, the one thing that has me confused is why his name isn’t on every prediction list for one or other film in this thread considering the pedigree for each.
If he double-nommed next year that would be four nominations in three years. I think even if he was deserving in both roles he wouldn’t manage that, just because voters would be like ‘let someone else have a go’. Even if he only scores a nomination for one of those movies he would have three in three years, and only Marlon Brando has more consecutive nominations than that (four in four years).
A lot of TLD’s chances will be determined by how well it handles its source material, but I’m confident that Driver and Jodie Comer wouldn’t sign up for this kind of story if they didn’t think the script was good. Apparently it’s written from the perspectives of all three of the main characters.
Matt Damon also has Stillwater coming out next year and may seek a nomination for that instead.January 19, 2020 at 5:58 pm #1203293333
I think if anything Driver will be nominated for Annette. And that will be it.January 20, 2020 at 1:01 am #1203294415
I really hope Tenet will be the movie to give Nolan his first Oscar. He’s gotta win one soon.January 20, 2020 at 1:19 am #1203294419

I hope you are right. But ever since Dunkirk lost, and especially seeing 1917 getting all the awards Dunkirk should have, the industry stinks of bias.January 20, 2020 at 1:29 am #1203294425
Glenn Close is sweeping next year.January 20, 2020 at 2:16 am #1203294450
Close just lost to a first-time nominee. Let’s not start this so early.January 20, 2020 at 3:23 am #1203294482
Is next year going to be the year of Frances McDormand? I sure hope. I mean you know she’ll kill Lady MacBeth in “MacBeth”, she’ll bring her signature whimsy to “The French Dispatch” – I mean she rocked Miss Clavel in “Madeline”! Finally, Nomadland. She could fraud to supporting for MacBeth and get the double noms.
She deserved this.
