    I realized a big error I made to my predictions. I totally forgot to include Les Miserables, so I’ve taken out The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind and replaced it with that.

    Two disqualifications now. These filmmakers really need to read the Academy rulebook before sending the submission in the first place.

    It seems like most of the internet agree, with Les Miserables and Pain & Glory being a close 3 and 4. After that is where things start to divide.

    There are already people pulling the race card. The rules may be stupid but rules are rules. I’m sick of Twitter.

    The Hollywood Reporter published their current shortlist predictions:

    Frontrunners
    Parasite (South Korea)
    Pain and Glory (Spain)
    Les Miserables (France)
    A White, White Day (Iceland)
    Invisible Life (Brazil)

    Major threats
    Corpus Christi (Poland)
    Instinct (Netherlands)
    Tel Aviv on Fire (Luxembourg)
    Papicha (Algeria)
    The Traitor (Italy)

    I don’t think it’s too far off but Atlantics, Honeyland and Weathering With You are definitely in the mix.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
    Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)

    Not gonna lie, I’m really glad things turned out pretty well for Almodovar this year. Solid return to form.

    I’ve been keeping my eye on Atlantics since Cannes festival. Rather surprised it is consider to be in the mix for nom, nonetheless, very happy if this is indeed true.

    Corpus Christi (Poland) – This would be somehow a shocker? But again, a very positive one. Paweł Pawlikowski’s profile after Ida’s success and of course support from Amazon for Cold War was very important last year. So that was a huge advantage for Poland.

    But I’m not sure where this strong position for Corpus Christi is coming from? Any gossip?

    With English increasingly becoming an international lingua franca, the Academy may want to think about amending the rules to allow for films with an English-dominant soundtrack.

    Don’t get me wrong, I love to see non-English languages nominated, and international cinema is near and dear to me, but many of these nations are going to continue to push against the line, especially as more and more people speak English. Of course cinema is a way to preserve and celebrate smaller (and dying) languages, but this trajectory is starting to worry me. Are we headed in a direction where the nominees are only ever films from Empires that can afford to not be disqualified (Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Russia, Sweden, etc.)?

    Why? Countries can easily submit movies in non-English languages. And if they can’t come up with something (which is impossible because every year 10s of local movies are released) they can sit that year out. No one in the Academy is sitting through 90+ movies anyway, it would help those who follow the actual rules.

    Why?

    I explained “why” underneath the piece you quoted, but you cut that part out. Why?

    Anyway, my hesitation comes from the fact that empiric nations can culturally protect their nominations because of their history. “Sitting that year out” disproportionately will affect those nations which were colonized by the aforementioned empiric powers, nations who often use colonial languages as common languages. So, for example, many former British colonies in Africa whose common languages are now English are at a disadvantage, despite having many local languages, because the common cinematic language was foisted upon them by empire.

    Corpus Christi wouldn’t really be that much of a shocker, at least to the shortlist. In addition to the wider context (Poland’s success with Cold War), it was very well-received on the festival circuit.

    The “rules are rules” has always been too retentive for my liking.

    And I’ve disabled any Twitter feeds about movies.

    and it centres on Nigerian sex workers. Nigeria has taken over the controversy ground this year.

    Chromatica: Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album.

    Rain On Me: Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Music Video.
