Not really Picture/Director related but wasn’t sure what thread to put this in, so:
Interesting that I think this year could be MUCH more packed with first-time nominees than any recent year.
I’m currently predicting 14 newcomers, with over half of those returning names in Lead Actress alone.

What is it adapted from? The documentary that co-scriptwriter and co-producer Keith Beauchamp had previously directed, which led to the reopening of the criminal investigation?
I believe Beauchamp having already made that documentary will be enough to classify it as adapted, though the more I try and look into it the less sure I am since neither it’s Wiki or IMDb page list it as an adaption of anything. I guess we’ll have to see where the studio submits it and where the Academy accepts it.September 21, 2022 at 2:39 pm #1205093547

Woman Talking to me continues to be the film that sweeps Critics Groups, looks like it’ll be the front-runner during the first televised awards and then loses the Oscar to a more approachable film. Seen this before.September 21, 2022 at 4:07 pm #1205093719
I’m honestly so glad few people have Avatar 2 in their top 10’s. Gonna be good for the ranks when it does get in. Cameron isn’t going to miss, this will be a sequal that will blow people away + box office will be huge + unlike the first I’m expecting it to review above 90% + December release will be fresh on Oscar voters minds.September 21, 2022 at 10:46 pm #1205094087
Starting to think Banshees could win.
It’s universally loved, and will be getting lots of 1’s, 2’s, and 3’s on the ballot.
Original Screenplay plus a win for Condon, Farrell and/or Gleeson would be enough.

Interesting. Can anyone think of a time when a movie received mixed reviews on the festival circuit but was significantly edited before its general release, and then went on to awards season success?September 22, 2022 at 8:09 am #1205094463
With Michelle Williams idiotically being moved to Lead Actress, I think it’s time for me to confirm this:
Women Talking is winning Best Picture.
Why? Because it’s the only possibility for winning the one-two combo that has been a staple of nearly all recent Best Picture winners: Director/Screenplay + Acting/Editing = Picture. The only two movies in the entire 21st century that have not won this way are Gladiator and Spotlight. And if last year with CODA taught us anything, it’s to NEVER underestimate that combo.
So with the movie already the frontrunner for Adapted Screenplay, and either Jessie Buckley or Claire Foy (more likely the former as a previous nominee) claiming Supporting Actress, there’s nothing standing in its way. EEAAO is the only thing that could likely stop it with the Original Screenplay/Supporting Actor combo, but unfortunately – genre films winning is where the Academy draws the line, and y’all know it.Not now
