    Honestly, at this point it’ll either be an EEAO sweep, or it’ll duke it out with Banshees… possibly a third contender Avatar 2. Everything else is bye, bye. And yes even The Fablemans which is pretty much being hyped right now but will die off once precursors start.

    Everything Everywhere All At Once making more money than a Steven Speilberg movie is quite pleasing.

    Best Picture

    1. Everything Everywhere All at Once
    2. Women Talking
    3. The Banshees of Inisherin
    4. The Fabelmans
    5. Tár
    6. Top Gun : Maverick
    7. Glass Onion : A Knives Out Story
    8. Babylon
    9. She Said
    10. Decision to Leave

    Director

    1. Steven Spielberg, The Fabelmans
    2. The Daniels, Everything Everywhere All at Once
    3. Sarah Polley, Women Talking
    4. Todd Field, Tár
    5. Park Chan-wook, Decision to Leave

    6. Martin McDonagh, The Banshees of Inisherin
    7. Damien Chazelle, Babylon
    8. James Cameron, Avatar : The Way of Water
    9. Ruben Ostlund, Triangle of Sadness
    10. Alejandro G. Inarritu, Bardo

    I’m beginning to get very shaky on Decision to Leave. I can see the critical push being more for Park Chan-wook in the director race than the film itself. I’m very tempted to slot The Whale in its place because, whilst I don’t think it will perform as strong as it, I’m getting a bit of The Father déjà vu from its awards campaign. Elvis feels tempting too because of its below the line support and the Warner Bros. of it all although I’m not sure how to justify having Fraser ahead if I have it without The Whale.

    The Woman King feels like a film that could be ready to slip in here if something fumbles but I actually wonder if we could be sleeping on Aftersun. I mean I myself am not predicting it to get nominated right now (although I do have Paul Mescal in best actor) but I’m anticipating it’s going to get a strong critical push over the coming weeks and it’s a film that people seem to LOVE. With 10 slots and a lack of consensus I can see it capitalising almost like Sound of Metal did in the last stretches of the season (especially if Mescal ends up solidifying his position as a nominee).

    FYC: Better Call Saul, The English and The Good Fight in all categories including Emily Blunt, Bob Odenkirk, Christine Baranski and Rhea Seehorn.

    I still have it in for now, but The Whale‘s rollout isn’t promising for the BP lineup. A24 seems pretty terrified about the potential discourse around this film. It won’t hurt the film on acting nominations but I’m not sure they’re ready to do a full court press for Picture. Other options on the bubble seem to at least have a narrative that’s actively being pushed around the film itself, whether it’s box office, the social message, etc.

    It seems like Fraser had the narrative and goodwill to be an unstoppable force to win but the movie around him and all of Aronfosky’s….Aronfoskyness let him down. He is not out of the conversation to win yet but still. The anticipation around The Whale was that it would be Darren’s big comeback after mother! and it would get tons of nominations for everyone, it had a Best Picture nom on lock, and Fraser would be unstoppable. Well – 🤪

    It’s divisive but I shouldn’t be able to smell the fear of the studio this much. Bad reviews or not, SPC clearly believed in The Son before it got panned. And The Whale seems to have supporters coming out of the festivals so it’s already in better shape.

    I took it out of my BP predictions for the reason you’ve identified.

    Tar, Till, and She Said!? Whew. You’re braver than I am. I’m in for Tar, but I can’t even begin to predict Till or She Said

    The Academy has a type

    Never underestimate critically acclaimed films about important American historical events/figures.

    She Said is a nearly locked adapted screenplay contender and I think that Women Talking is NOT going to be the only Best Picture nominee in that category.

    Till is a potential Best Actress winner.
