    I think what’s truly disappointing is that there always has to be just one “female director nominee” in the overall discourse every Oscar season. Rebecca Hall, Joanna Hogg and Maggie Gyllenhaal deserved so much better last year and Bythewood, Chukwu, Wells and Diwan are more deserving than half of last year’s actual best director nominees. It was so refreshing when we had Fennell and Zhao nominated with each other two years ago and even then it was disappointing that King didn’t factor much in the conversation outside of the Globes.

    Chukwu, Wells and Diwan are more deserving than half of [Campion, Spielberg, Hamaguchi, Paul Thomas Anderson, Branagh]? I think you’re being exaggerating.

    As for Maggie Gyllenhaal, she got a GG nom and the most “first-time directing” awards including DGA last year. What did you expect more from her and “The Lost Daughter”? An Oscars? She’s doing pretty well in the last award season.

    When you’re truly outstanding and your films are top BP contenders, it’s always more easily to get the Oscars nom, just like Gerwig, Fennell, Zhao, Campion. This year, we have Sarah Polley and maybe Gina Prince-Bythewood.

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

    the doesn’t needs to be a top BP contender to get the BD nom, one example is vinterberg. Diwan has the adventage of the BAFTA best director nom like vinterberg.

    Darling, last season’s directing lineup are pretty mediocre (outside of Hamaguchi of course). I hope next year could be better.

    Oh, I think she can definitely happen at BAFTAs. Yet for Oscars, it’s far less likely than Edward Berger or Park Chan-wook, if there’s one slot for international film.

    she already had the BAFTA nom and in 2018 they nominated 2 international films for the oscar for best director ( roma and cold war)

    Can anyone who’s seen The Fablemans tell me what’s so great about Spielberg’s directing in it?  I mean it looks way less technically impressive then West Side Story and there are directors this year like Field, McDonagh and Park Chan Wook who have all done some real impressive stuff but they almost get chucked to the side just because the Fablemans has Spielberg’s name attached to it so he just auto wins like huh? Like is he the frontrunner because he’s genuinely the best or because he’s a well known legend and they wanna give him another one. Then again I haven’t even seen the movie so I can’t say much.

    Darling, you must be new to this. The Oscars is nothing more than a popularity contest.

    Ugh finally someone said it. Triangle of Sadness was a whole mess until Dolly DeLeon’s act and even she couldn’t fully save it.

    The Menu is not an Oscar type film. It is a horror movie. It will get no nominations.

    It was advertised as a horror movie because they’re the only non-superhero movies that make money anymore, but in truth it’s a black comedy thriller.

    I watched the movie last week and I felt the same, what a boring until the third act (and even that I don’t think makes the movie more interesting to me). Really need to understand how Cannes jury gave the Palme D’or to this.
