    This film will be a popular blockbuster hit, including with the Academy.

    Likely nominations…

    Best Picture
    Best Director
    Best Actor
    Editing
    Cinematography
    Make-Up
    Costumes
    Production Design
    Sound Design

    I think Baz will get in for his flashy directing / legacy … especially if the film overperforms at the box office.

    Meanwhile, Tom Hanks has the Razzie on Lock for the worst supporting performance.

    Just got home from seeing the movie. Very mixed feelings about it. Austin Butler was very good, Tom Hanks is always problematic when he plays against type as a villain, so much was glossed over in a film that covered about 30 years in the life of a complex human being… The editing was too much editing for me. The screenplay was too simplistic. Yet the costumes, sets, sound, and Butler’s performance were all standouts.

    I think it could be nominated for Oscars for Actor, Production Design, Costume Design, Makeup/Hairstyling, and Sound.

    Where did you get this idea? The reception of Hanks is obviously mixed to negative.

    Tom Hanks performance is massively divisive lmao. He has received a good amount of pans and people saying he should be winning a Razzie.

    Have a feeling Austin is this year’s Taron; except Taron had a strong résumé, he’s going to win the Comedy Globe but it might be tight with the early release getting the Oscar nomination especially when no other competitors have been seen…

    He is winning the academy loves to reward best actor to  someone who portrays a real life person. We have seen with will smith Leonardo DiCaprio Eddie redmayne. Matthew mcconaughey Daniel day Lewis  twice   And Phillip Seymour  Hoffmann and Jaime foxx

    Well, it’s exactly what you might expect from Baz Luhrmann’s signature excess and extravagance. This film wastes a committed turn from Butler (some vibrant live performances from him), with tiresome maximalism. The weariful direction results in most dramatic scenes feeling insipid and shallow. The oversimplified conclusion that “Elvis just needed some love” suggests a Luhrmann interested in exploring Elvis’ persona very superficially while heavily leaning into his iconography for surface pleasures. Despite all the overflowing visual gimmicks, hyper-stylized montages and eye-popping camera movements, the boldest (and most dubious) part of it all is Luhrmann’s choice of telling the story from the point of view of Elvis’ manager/manipulator, Colonel Tom Parker (Hanks delivers a cartoonish bad performance, but that’s beside the point). How can a screenplay written by >> 4 << people make the conscious decision of having Elvis as an external to his own story?? You can tell by now that I didn’t like it very much, but anyways…

    As far as awards go, it could be a box-office hit and get a lot of nominations stemming from the Academy’s wish of once again appealing to a larger audience or it could perform mediocre and get just a few. Actor, Costumes, Production and Sound could be “deserved” but anything other than that, nope.

    I’ll never forgive Taron being snubbed, especially after the fucking Academy rewarded Malek for the mess called Bohemian Rhapsody

    Wouldn’t Elvis being competing in Globe drama? Haven’t seen the film but aren’t the musical numbers diegetic? (a la ASIB, BohRap, Judy, Respect)

    Hanks recreates a villain so naturally and deeply without stridency that he is more like a friend of the main character, his perfect complement to narrate the vicissitudes of the character from the point of view of the public, the press, the family and the staff.

    Pretty sure Elvis is Drama at the GG. It’s not a musical biopic like Rocketman.
