    The problem with PYW losing AFI is that it’s performing really really well with critics awards. Why wouldn’t AFI appreciate it as much as critics groups? That doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t be nominated for BP, but that’s still an interesting question.

    Maybe they just didn’t care idk. Or just happened to like the other movies more.

    Do you know what the standard is for a foreign movie getting a special shoutout from AFI? Roma and Parasite got them right?

    Also, since the preferential ballot there’s been, at least, one movie that got into BP at the Oscars but missed both AFI and National Board of Review.

    Special award is not mandatory. This year there isn’t a beloved  foreign movie.

    Just out of curiosity: has a movie ever won National Board of Review without being named in the AFI Top10?

    In the past decade, I definitely recall A Most Violent Year did it. The way it went from winning Film, Actor and Supporting Actress to collapsing at the GG…lol

    A Most Violent Year was from A24, so I’m not surprised it did that well there. They love A24 and Warner Bros. so expect to see Minari and Judas and the Black Messiah do well tomorrow.

    Eh News of the World isn’t a movie that inspires passion so it’s not surprising that it missed here, but it’s definitely a movie up the Academy’s alley, and it’s getting screenplay and editing at Oscars, so not predicting it in a lineup of 10 is a big no-no.

    lol its not getting screenplay.

    I’m surprised they didn’t throw a bone at films like The Invisible Man or even Tenet even if it was just as a symbolic gesture. I guess Soul is their “popular” choice this year.

    Hmm I thought <i>Promising Young Woman </i>was eligible but it looks like it may have been ineligible due to a majority of its producers being British/Australian.

    Weirdly enough Jackie was apparently ineligible for some reason?

    I’ll just assume it was ineligible but here is the tweet I found.

    https://twitter.com/ErickWeber/status/1353784671000096768

    FYC OSCARS : PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN IN ALL CATEGORIES (ESP. ACTRESS – Carey Mulligan AND ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY — EMERALD FENNELL), VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", ESSIE DAVIS FOR "BABYTEETH"

    If 1917 can make it then so can PYW, it was definitely eligible. People are just coming up with excuses to justify the snub.

    If PYW was ineligible for being produced mostly by non Americans, why was 1917 eligible last year?

    The tweet you posted doesn’t mention anyone’s nationality though. Both studios that produced the film are American so I think it’s clear that the film was eligible.
