    All 23 Oscar categories will be presented live during the Oscars 2023 telecast.

    Currently, I think Best Pic will come down to EEAAO, The Fablemans and Top Gun Maverick while Director will come down to the Daniels (EEAAO), Steven Speilberg (The Fablemans) and Sarah Polley (Women Talking).

    Pic:
    1. EEAAO
    2. Top Gun Maverick
    3. The Fablemans

    Director:
    1. Steven Speilberg
    2. The Daniels
    3. Sarah Polley

    As far as I love EEAAO, I don’t think it deserves an Oscars win for direction to be honest. It will have its rightful wins in BP or Screenplay.

    2023:
    "TAR", "Banshees","Batman"

    EEAO just won the Gotham Awards for best film. Not to relevant, but me thinks this is just the beginning. 😀

    Its still not out in my area yet, but I do wonder where this narrative came from originally. That he was winning his 3rd, done deal, and we all just jumped on it? I’m also predicting him to win and haven’t even seen his film yet. It’s just because of who he is and the type of film this is. I wish I could watch it so I can see what all the fuss about his direction here is.

    Saw the film, and not predicting him at all. Seems like the early frontrunner that loses steam. Your question puzzles me as well. Where did this narrative come from? Why is this film the director frontunner?

    Darling, Sweetie Spielberg doesn’t need a third directing Oscar. Especially for his overly sentimental movie about him and his annoying mom and her goofy wig. Daniels, Field, Chan-wook, Berger, Wells, are far worthier for their daring and bold efforts.

    I agree. I kind of hated her mom in the movie. If he loves/adores his mom, well, his mom was annoying in the movie

    I agree. From your List, I choose Chan-Wook. One Of The Greatest Directors

I wish I could watch it so I can see what all the fuss about his direction here is.

    I think there were good reasons for it. Director seems like a natural place for passion for the film to cluster with Williams out of Supporting, and love for Spielberg has been in the air since West Side Story. I think most feel that he, like Scorsese, should have more than one directing Oscar but he’s had fewer and fewer vehicles over the years. A personal project that showcases how he got into filmmaking feels like a winner on paper, especially when the passion for Picture doesn’t seem like it can last.

    I agree there are more cutting edge options in the category and I wonder if more passion will arise for them. But I also wonder if that support for other contenders might be split between Directing and Screenplay, which is a category I don’t see Fablemans winning. Love for TAR, Banshees, or EEAAO could just go to the Original Screenplay category instead of Director.

    The “alternative” to Spielberg is as obvious as it is… The Daniels.

    I am having some strange feeling about Top Gun: Maverick. We discuss EEAAO, The Fabelmans, Women Talking and Banshees, and rightfully so, but I am having some unreasonable and inexplicable feeling that TGM can sweep into Best Picture race as a frontrunner, leaving also Director race open for The Daniels to take it.

    These small, independent movies under-performing at Box Office is one thing. Spielberg, a man who created blockbusters, underperforming for a movie with a budget of $40M is another. I am not sure what projected numbers are at the moment, but with Top Gun re-release and Avatar premiere, plus Wakanda Forever and Black Adam, I can’t see it going to $20-30M. I may be wrong, though.

    I can honestly see The Fabelmans underperforming at awards this season, shifting the narrative to more financially successful movies – Maverick and EEAAO.
