    I’m trying not to read too deep into the NBR results, especially since the season’s just getting started but I do have some thoughts.

    Top Gun Maverick has officially taken off. NBR is where Mad Max Fury Road established itself as not just a populist pipe dream like No Way Home and became an actual contender. It’s also looking like a lock in cinematography.

    RRR is building momentum. What if its Selma? Gets nominated for just picture and song? Could Rajamouli be this year’s international director too?

    Good for Till, Aftersun & The Woman King. Bad for She Said, Elvis (NBR typically nominates something from WB) and The Whale. I’ll wait for a major precursor or at least AFI before making further conclusions.

    I think that anyone still predicting Pinocchio in BP should abandon ship ASAP. It’s not even sweeping the animated feature awards. NBR is an animation-friendly group so Pinocchio had a real chance here. Netflix is going to make Glass Onion their main priority and we’ll see how that goes. I think Glass Onion’s release strategy has been very strategic in terms of reminding voters/critics that it exists at the exact right moments.

    Decision to Leave is not doing that great either. Has it won something? Both Close and All Quiet on the Western Front are doing way better. I don’t think it’s winning International Film anymore. It’s no Drive My Car.

    Yeah it’s not happening at BP and even BD imo. I mean if you have watched the film you would know it doesn’t feel like a typical International Film winner that most voters will go for. The direction still deserves a nom but the screenplay has its issues.

    "TAR", "Banshees","Batman"

    Satellite nominations can very much be the Oscar nominations come January. I hate to even imagine, but both Joseph Kosinski and Baz Luhrmann can happen and we are underestimating their love for TGM and Elvis. (aka Todd Phillips)

    Director is always interesting but it’s really turning into a bloodbath:

    Spielberg, Field, McDonagh, the Daniels seen ahead right now. But then you have Polley too. And now Kosinski and Cameron making a charge. Plus the international filmmakers – Rajamouli, Ostlund, Chan-wook and Berger – in the mix (I can definitely see the branch including at least one in the lineup).

    Kosinski really seems to be picking up steam.

    as much as I love Maverick, never saw the Director potent since the film and hysteria of it all basically mimics around Cruise himself and the legacy left from Tony Scott till now, ig his path would be to Todd Phillips into the race

    We’ll see if She Said can get in at the Globes tomorrow (just like The Post) otherwise it’s only hope is PGA and SAG. I don’t think it’s getting in ensemble for the latter due to the stiff competition and PGA might not even be in its reach.

    It’s AFI that releases its top 10 movies of the year tomorrow— Globe nominations won’t be announced until Monday, the 12th.

    Tbh I don’t know why people aren’t  McDonagh in directing each year we get an European director with a top contender that is competitive in either directing or screenplay and they usually make it like the favourite, 1917 , dunkrik , promising young woman ..etc and that branch is very euro heavy so if he makes GG and BAFTA then he could get in

    I’m still burned from 2018 … I won’t get my hopes up too high unless he literally gets in everywhere.

    How many films did you spot? I usually finds Google’s round-up very telling of what made the most buzz in the year. I saw Top Gun, Everything Everywhere All At Once, Turning Red, and RRR (that theater celebration..wow!). Could be telling.

    And of course, Queen Youn giving Troy the Oscar and Queen Sheryl Lee Ralph’s speech
