    And fairly common too in the expanded era too. 2012, 2013 and 2016 are the only non-covid’s years with only Q4 only wide releases. Pre-Venice/TIFF wide releases that got Best Picture • Inglorious Basterds (August 2009) • Inception (July 2010) • Toy Story 3 (July 2010) • Midnight in Paris (June 2011) • The Help (August 2011) • The Grand Budapest Hotel (March 2014) • Mad Max: Fury Road (May 2015) • Get Out (February 2017) • Dunkirk (July 2017) • Black Panther (February 2018) • Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (July 2019)

    Oof. That is not promising for EEAAO.  All of these movies were blockbusters in the US, grossing over $100 million, sans two: MiP and TGBH. And even those two still managed over $50 million. Plus, they had two very established directors, with Wes Anderson already having amassed three nominations and Woody Allen having 3 wins and 21 nominations to his name at that point!

    That’s why i think Scorsese has a huge chance to win Picture compared to The Irishman

    Maybe but women talking also has a rooting factor like spotlight

    Anyone know when Everywhere is out at the cinema in UK? I thought it was supposed to be this weekend…

    don’t think it has distribution here yet but from what I’ve read online April 8th – end of April. I’m in London and really eager to watch.

    and from that snippet I think Michelle will make an excellent campaigner. I’m sure many actresses can empathise with waiting for their moment to really demonstrate capabilities. Many simply don’t get the chance.

    And that’s why I won’t watch this until the very last minute.

    I finally watched EEAAO today and I’m in complete awe of the level of filmmaking brought to the table. Tonically it reminded me a lot of Holy Motors by Leos Carax – and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible.

    The film is GREAT in so many ways but I feel some may be overestimating its awards chances, especially since it’s A24. If it tries to be this all around juggernaut it will most likely fall short everywhere, so I hope they focus on Yeoh (a performance soooo full of color) and the superb writing.

    I think like most things people get carried away. It’s always “it should win EVERY CATEGORY” rather than “hey, this is very competitive for actress and editing”

    Well, it should be competitive across the board so I get why people got carried away. But it’s early april, we’re like 9 months away from nominations voting.

    If we look at other films with early releases to make it into Best Picture in the expanded era, they were all huge box-office hits and most from big name directors. The only real precedent (including the genre bias hurdle) is Get Out, but that movie grossed $255.4 million against a $4.5 million budget and represented a moment in Hollywood with the #OscarsSoWhite movement. I’m very curious about how A24 will manage this campaign, let’s hope for the best outcome possible.

    Michelle is campaigning her beautiful self to advantage. I hope she doesn’t peak too soon for short memories.
    The crafts should be competitive but it’s Michelle I want to see finally recognized.
    Is that asking too much…?

    I’m wondering if Avatar II will help Michelle Yeoh. If EEAAO does well at the box office, and Avatar II is a blockbuster and a tech juggernaut then I think it’ll be hard to ignore her during award season. Plus Avatar II isn’t the type of movie that would garner acting nominations so there won’t be vote splitting.

    I think she has a great chance, even more competitive than crafts actually. But as we’ve seen this year, critics are very… volatile. We’ll need them to stick with her and push her performance all the way.

    Guess what I just saw!

    Looks like I’m in the EEAO hive now! A truly hilarious & heartwarming film! Combining crass humor, sci-fi trippiness, and some of the best editing I’ve seen in years! Absolutely recommend!

    Not sure how its Oscar chances are though. Depends on how much critics & A24 push it. Here’s how I see it for now.

    Bare minimum: Editing,

    If they like it: Actress, Original Screenplay, Sound, Costumes

    If they really like it: Picture, Supporting Actor (Ke Huy Quan), Visual Effects,

    If they absolutely love it: Director, Supporting Actress (Stephanie Hsu), Song

    It’ll either be Women Talking or She Said. As much as we’d like that to happen, it’s very unlikely two films dealing with the same subject matter get nominated considering the subject is kinda difficult for a lot of people.
