    For the record I went back to look at the March thread from 2021 and I would say the accuracy rate was about 15-20%.

    I am hoping Babylon will go home empty handed I am over Oscar baits

    Not happening a Damien Chazelle film has never went home empty handed at the Oscars and whats wrong with oscar bait especially when its by Damien Chazelle one of the best young directors in the world.

    Gemma is exquisite but I don’t think she could act her way out of a paper bag. Even when she has no dialogue and is playing a British grandmother.
    But that could change.

    Looking through old threads generally people were worst at predicting when they:

    a) assumed something was getting dated that didn’t

    b) stanned performers too much as opposed to looked at directors

    c) didn’t pay attention to the projects studios prioritised in the midst of the pandemic

    d) didn’t pay attention to general consensus from festivals as they happened.

    Not predicting her (at least at this stage) because it’s an early release but Michelle Yeoh an incredible amount of buzz and acclaim going for her right now for Everything Everywhere All at Once (which just opened to one of the highest per theatre averages of the pandemic) and there seems to be a lot of excitement over her having a leading role in a film like this for the first time.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if this ends up being a performance that does well with critics groups.

    It baffles me that despite having an international career spanning almost 40 years, her acclaimed roles in both box-office hits and arthouse films (and even one Best Picture-nominated film), she hasn’t received even *one* nomination in any major ceremony. She’s beyond overdue at this point.

    She has a BAFTA nom

    I can see people rallying behind Yeoh. She’s a long standing performer with great filmography, seems to be respected by industry. I’m just not sure the role is to the academy’s taste.

    I just watched the trailer for “Everything Everywhere All At Once” and it does not seem the kind of thing that Oscars like to reward at all. It will end up being left out of all awards, like “The Green Knight” (also a A24 early release). Sorry for the pessimism!

    Oh yeah I think her chances of an Oscar nom at this stage are slim. But this film seems to be more accessible than The Green Knight with it being character driven than plot driven and doesn’t seem particularly polarising (it has an 8.9 score on IMDB compared to The Green Knight‘s 6.6).

    Yeoh having a potential Lindo/Hawke type of run with critics if her performance still ends up being in the conversation at the end of the season doesn’t feel too implausible.

    I’m hoping it is between Viola Davis, Naomie Ackie, and Michelle Yeoh. Sorry Margot stans.

    Hate to break it to everyone, but I don’t see it as being very likely that Yeoh gets in for that film or for that role.

     

    At best, she’ll get a critic’s choice nom like Nicolas Cage did for Pig.
