    Fernando Frías de la Parra just got nominated for Outstanding Directorial Achievement of a First-Time Feature Film Director. The only one from an International Feature Film to do so at DGA. 🇲🇽 Ya No Estoy Aquí is fighting for that Oscar nom.

    Actually Fernando Coimbra was the first one for A Wolf at the Door (O Lobo Atrás da Porta in Portuguese).

    Can anyone who has watched La Llorona and Collective tell me which one you like more?

    Collective. Not that La Llorona was bad, but Collective was just unbelievably gripping and shocking and felt so much like a fictional story that I kept forgetting I was watching a documentary.

    Emmy FYC:

    Chloë Sevigny in “The Girl From Plainville” and “Russian Doll”

    I think, Another Round is a definite lock and the safest choice here. I think Que Vadis, Aida? and Night of the Kings will get nominated. I’m not sure about the last two. Any of the followings such as Collective, I’m No Longer Here, La Llrona and Two of Us could get nominated. Just like Honeyland last year, Collective could receive a double nomination in International Film and Documentary. I’m No Longer Here could be the surprise of the category, since its director received some recognition.

    1. Another Round
    2. Que Vadis, Aida
    3. Night of the Kings
    4. La Lrona or Two of Us
    5. Collective or I’m No Longer Here

    Really hope “A Sun” could spoil and get a nom. It’s been so long since my homeland, Taiwan, got into this category (Crouching tiger hidden dragon.)

    Collective. Not that La Llorona was bad, but Collective was just unbelievably gripping and shocking and felt so much like a fictional story that I kept forgetting I was watching a documentary.

    Thanks!

    Without the International Film Executive Committee saving some small movies and trying not to go full Europe, I believe the obvious choices are going to appear here.

    1- Another Round – Denmark

    2- Quo Vadis, Aida ? – Bosnia and Herzegovina

    3- Two of Us – France

    4- Collective – Romanian

    5- Ya No Estoy Aqui – Mexico

    Oh sorry. Since you said ‘the only one to do so at DGA’ I assumed you were talking in general. My mistake.

    Wow, why can’t I see Better Days as a potential nominee? It’s a cultural phenomenon in China/Hongkong with success critically and commercially. It’s been a wild ride for international feature. While Another Round seems like a lock, don’t sleep on Better Days‘ chance to win!

    "The Lost Daughter" in every eligible category - Film
    "Succession" Season 3 in every eligible category - TV
    "Heaux Tales" by Jasmine Sullivan in every eligible category - Music

    “Better Days” is very controversial in China since people found out that the story was actually a plagiarism of a Japanese novel. The producing team still refuse to admit it’s an adapted work instead of an original one. Furthermore, it lost BP in all 3 biggest film awards in Hong Kong and mainland China.

    Since we got 2 Mandarin Chinese films, “A Sun” from Taiwan and “Better Days” from HK, most Chinese people thought “A Sun” is superior and more likely to be nominated. This result is surprising to them, too.

    Btw, “A Sun” is the highest-rating Chinese film last year in Chinese version of IMDb, Douban.

    This is inaccurate and very misleading. It was the book that Better Days was adapted from that was accused of plagiarism, not the film itself. The producers of the film obtained the rights legally. It’s the author of the book who has to answer to these accusations.

    I’m no legal expert, but in my opinion, those accusations against the book are pretty flimsy and would be very unlikely to stand in court.
