    Even tough I initially stated that EEAAO would likely not stand a chance at winning BP,
    If the buzz truly sustains and the other BP contenders turn out to be too Oscar baity to have any organic passion, there is a *world* where it does win(thinking picture, either Director or screenplay, and actress).
    It’s an uphill climb though.

    We still have The Fablemans, Babylon, and Killers Of The Flower Moon. On paper, those 3 seem to have the best chance at winning outside of EEAAO this early in the stage. I can’t see any other film other than the 3 I mentioned having a chance at being as beloved or as celebrated as EEAAO is. Granted, it’s July and I get it. Everything can change, but I just don’t see it. EEAAO is indeed coming to cement it’s spot in the top 5.

    Those plus Women Talking are probably going to be the five we talk about all year long unless something small really surprises at telluride or tiff.

    I feel like we are destined to have at least one female directed film do well(and get into the directing lineup.)
    The reason why Women Talking makes more sense is the fact that it is written by the filmmaker and feels more artistic on paper than She Said.)

    I take your point about thinking that She Said is not as likely as Women Talking to get a Directing nomination because Maria Schrader did not write (or co-write) the screenplay and her film seems less “artistic” but I note that both Spotlight and All the President’s Men received nominations for Best Director, and it appears that She Said will be somewhat similar in genre and style to both of those films, neither of which I think of as “auteur” films. (Pakula didn’t participate in writing William Goldman’s ATPM’s screenplay; McCarthy co-wrote Spotlight’s screenplay with Josh Singer.) I share your view that there is a very strong chance that at least one of the Best Director nominees will be female. I also think it’s very possible that there might be two women nominated. (I’m very curious to see Till, and am not ruling out Chinonye Chukwu‘s chances, but acknowledge that as of now, they seem less than likely.)

    It’s also the fact that there is oftentimes one directing nomination each year that isn’t overly “flashy” or enormous in scope but still stylish enough to get nominated(Kenneth Lonergan for Manchester by The Sea, Greta Gerwig for Lady Bird, Lee Issac Chung for Minari) and based on the source material, Polley could be crafting an incredibly focused/condensed narrative like those filmmakers mentioned above.

    Besides EEAAO, I only see RRR and Top Gun racing ahead of all the releases in tangency with the amount of love everyone is showering on it. India needs to submit RRR for it will be a huge contender in the International category.

    I anticipate RRR will get a decent push from regional critics by the year’s end.

    India and Variance Films need to get their ish together. With the right campaign, RRR has potential to make Picture, Tech Categories, Music, Vfx, International Feature, and maybe more.
