    Watch Tom Cruise get a sag nomination for best actor.

    If Cruise actually campaigns this season, he could dark horse his way come nom day

    Was Tom Cruise that good in Maverick?

    I do not in any way think he is getting an Oscar nomination for Maverick but he can get a sag nom based on the love for the movie overall(and the love for him)
    Think of Christian Bale for Ford V Ferrari

    Christian Bale (Ford v Ferrari) both gave a better performance than Cruise and didn’t have an additional avenue to get awarded for his participation in that film. Remember that Tom Cruise is one of the producers of Top Gun: Maverick and thus would get personally nominated should the film make it into Best Picture/Best Film awards categories, so there’s far less urgency—not to mention too few slots—to also recognize him in Best Actor.

    Well, not for acting at least. Should Top Gun: Maverick score a Picture nomination, Cruise would assuredly get his first nomination as a producer and fourth overall.

    (More reason why I think TGM is going to make the picture lineup)

    Exactly. Christopher McQuarrie would also be honored, in his first Oscar nomination overall since winning Best Original Screenplay for 1995’s The Usual Suspects (and he and Cruise still have the blistering two-part finale to Mission: Impossible ahead of them, so more opportunity to recognize their contribution to action cinema). If it were up to me, McQuarrie would also make it into Best Adapted Screenplay.

    Coming along with them would be Skydance founder and CEO David Ellison. And last but certainly not least, Jerry Bruckheimer would be garnering his first ever personal Oscar nomination after 4+ decades of producing.

    Help me manifest this Best Original Song category at the 95th Oscars!:
    (contenders as of end of September)

    "Dosti" (RRR: Rise, Roar, Revolt)
    "Good Tonight" (The Bad Guys)
    "Hold My Hand" (Top Gun: Maverick)
    "Lucky Ducks" (The Bob's Burgers Movie)
    "Naatu Naatu" (RRR: Rise, Roar, Revolt)

    I think this was the right call. Park Chan-wook probably needs the boost more than Song Kang-ho does.

    Congrats to Park Chan-wook joining the ranks of Ryûsuke Hamaguchi, Thomas Vinterberg, Bong Joon-ho, Alfonso Cuarón, Pawel Pawlikowski, Michael Haneke, etc.

    It kinda feels like in with something like Ready or Not. A possibility for lone Original Screenplay nomination.

    While we’re in that period where we’re getting some trailers but still haven’t seen most of the films or read critical reaction to them, I feel the need to keep reminding myself that trailers have some, but limited value when it comes to predictions. I never would have predicted CODA for Best Picture last year, or Nomadland the year before, based solely on their trailers.

    Really intrigued by how did the Academy changed its rules for Leo Grande. Pretty bullshit to be honest. Like you changed the rules so the theatrical release is now required, but you just allow a movie that didn’t have it because the distributor appealed? Why such an exception for Searchlight? What was even written in the appeal? (Searchlight Pictures is part of Disney fyi)

    Yeah, did Good Luck to You, Leo Grande even make its LA/NYC/SFBA/CHC/ATL/MIA Oscar-qualifying theatrical run? Or did Searchlight (with Disney resources) seek special, pandemic-era treatment regarding the reinstated theatrical rule?

    As far as I’m aware it only theatrically played at Sundance in the US. (Which did make it eligible for Gotham & Indie Spirit no matter if it was still going to the Emmys – see Bad Education)

    Everybody getting in a fit about Leo Grande…

    In March, Hulu said it would go up in June. In May, the Academy said no more streaming-only. So the appeal is fine. A fair exception was made. I’m sure if any other streaming-only movie from Q1 or Q2 wanted to appeal, they could.

    "Glimpse of Us" - Joji
