    I’m hoping that the Linda Ronstad bio makes it. And also At the Heart of Gold so more people can see what that bastard did.

    All these contenders yet we know they’ll go for Apollo 11.

     

    I hope Diego Maradona and The Kingmaker can at least get nominated, cause they deserve to be nominated.

    This branch regularly snubs frontrunners. Nothing is set in stone with them.

    At this point, I’m fairly confident Apollo 11 and American Factory are locks. But then again, we all thought Won’t You By My Neighbor? was not only a shoo-in for a nomination, but also a win. So we must predict carefully.
