    Feels like Parasite all over again to me

    I don’t know how relevant these awards are but a good matric of the first six months. EEAAO basically won every category it was nominated in and was the runner-up to itself in the only category where that was possible. Austin Butler won Best Actor.

    It’s hard for me to imagine Top Gun not getting nominated. It is a huge BO success and there is an universal undeniability on how entertaining the film is.

    How many industry folks have openly praised EEAAO now?

    • Riz Ahmed
    • Shohreh Aghdashloo
    • Guillermo Del Toro
    • Jodie Foster
    • Andrew Garfield
    • Barry Jenkins
    • Sian Heder
    • Tobey Maguire
    • Florence Pugh
    • SZA
    • Miles Teller
    • Reese Witherspoon

    I’m sure there’s some more people praising it that I’m missing but from the above batch that’s 6 Oscar winners, 3 Oscar nominees and 2 members of the Academy.

    We love the diversity of branches going for the film! Hope it hits every category in nominations.

    All the winner were the expected ones, no other film but EEAAO and Elvis (and Elvis only being considered a Butler and Craft vehicle) have Oscar Buzz.
    Top Gun too, but it didn’t win anything.

    I’m always cautious about giving too much weight to Jordan Ruimy’s reports about feedback he’s received from viewers of test screenings but I’m still excited and pleased to read his report from at least one source who attended a test screening of “She Said” whose reaction to the movie is “very positive.” I hope this bodes well for possible nominations in a number of categories. At this point, I’m cautiously optimistic.

    I couldn’t find a thread for it, but I just wondered if people had any thoughts on International Feature?

    I have been following the festival circuit quite a bit and I think that Alcarras (which originally debuted at Berlin) looks quite strong.

    Any other thoughts on submissions and contenders?
