    Like I said in the other thread, this could end up being the BP lineup pretty easily (just with Belfast coming in for Macbeth / CODA / DLU / NA). They got all the locked movies in there, the best of the rest (CODA, TTB), and the two movies that looked locked before but are still somewhat likely to make it (NA, DLU).

    Yeah I don’t like this. All the late breakers except Ricardos and HoG? Don’t see it. They’re peaking now, being seen now, but I’ve always said that the extra time Oscar voters get will probably benefit smaller, under-seen films.

    Also Belfast did not get a “Best Film” designation, it’s outside the criteria as a non-American production, but I guess…..The Power of the Dog is? Unclear.

    Women Talking
    All the Beauty and the Bloodshed
    Joyland
    RRR

    Belfast got the same “we love you anyway, damn the rules” award that went to Roma and Parasite. Indicative?

    Well if some other film had gotten it, that would’ve been a REAL bad sign, let’s just say that lol. It’s notable that they don’t even give the special prizes every year, even though there’s always some non-American film good enough to warrant it, so it feels like they do it when their Top 10 doesn’t capture one of the frontrunners for sure. The King’s Speech, The Artist, Roma, Parasite. Like with Squid Game, I’m guessing the only way anything gets it is if it’s already widely seen by most people (otherwise The Father would’ve gotten in last year)

    Power of the Dog was partially funded by American production companies so it counts.

    And it’s an American story. It’s more than enough.

    Still not sure why so many online keep insisting Macbeth is doomed when it’s doing just fine in the highest profile groups so far

    Agree. The TV top ten outsold.

    Even with the horrendous Only Murders and Pose snubs.
