    Under very strict embargo but the early whispers are very positive about Kidman, apparently she nailed the voice and look. We’ll see, Amazon has yet to date it, I am expecting an AFI premiere and a December release date.

    We need a teaser trailer for this hopefully this can make at the AFI film fest. I heard it’s Dec 24.

    You saw a still and/or the movie? Because as we all know pap pictures look very different from the actual finished product.

    Why are you expecting an AFI premiere? (Other films to be included have already been announced, such as Bruised, Tick, Tick….Boom, King Richard, and Swan Song.) Have you read this anywhere?

    The pandemic has been a busy time for Sorkin, who has also been putting the finishing touches on his Lucille Ball film, Being the Ricardos, which will be released by Amazon in December, just in time to be a part of the Oscar conversation. Starring Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardemas Ball and Desi Arnaz, the film, written andStarring Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardemas Ball and Desi Arnaz, the film, written and directed by Sorkin, explores one week in the production of I Love Lucy, with a focus on the couple’s relationship.

     

     

     

    Along with Mockingbird, you’ve been busy editing Being the Ricardos. Where are you at with it?

    Right this minute, in London at Abbey Road Studios, they are recording the last bits of score. And then we have the sound mix and the color timing. Those are things that take a couple of weeks. So we do all that, we’ll be finished. We’ve rounded third. We’re heading for home.

    Obviously, a lot of people know Lucy and Desi, at least from television. How would you say your story captures her, especially in an Aaron Sorkin work?

    The movie takes place during one production week of I Love Lucy, Monday table-read to Friday audience taping, with flashbacks that we jump back to. And this particular week is a very rough one for Lucy and Desi. I’m reluctant to tell you why. I’m sort of debating how much of the movie to give away. When we think of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, what we’re thinking of, really, is Lucy especially is nothing like Lucy Ricardo. And it was the friction in their relationship that drew me to writing about it. It’s a very interesting, very dramatic relationship that the two of them had. Lucille Ball barely looks like Lucy Ricardo. So I’m hoping that the peek into their world will be fun for people.

    All well and good,  but he was hardly there for it. This is his take. Didn’t the daughter even say he was using quite a lot of artistic license? I don’t take issue with this- but don’t try to pass it as true to life

    I don’t see this project going wrong, at all, in terms of awards. Like Don’t Look Up, it won’t be very good, but the subject matter and the cast will be enough to get into consideration. Plus, it will be Amazon’s only across the board movie this season.

    Nicole will probably win the Comedy Globes easily.

    traditional biopic with likely Sorkin’s verbose dialog, historical figures who were beloved Hollywood stars. AMPAS catnip. Noms no wins. Sorkin snub.

    If Kidman isn’t nominated, then the film is at least a lock for Hair and Makeup.

    Predictions – In Order Of Likelihood

    1. Best Makeup/Hairstyling – Nominated (Pretty Likely)
    2. Best Original Screenplay – Nominated (Pretty Likely)
    3. Best Costume Design – Nominated (Pretty Likely)
    4. Best Actress – Nicole Kidman – Nominated (Pretty Likely)
    5. Best Production Design – Nominated (Pretty Likely)
    6. Best Supporting Actor (Javier Bardem) – Nominated (Potentially)
    7. Best Picture – Nominated (Potentially)
    8. Best Cinematography – Nominated (Potentially)
    9. Best Supporting Actor (JK Simmons) – Nominated (Probably Not)
    10. Best Film Editing – Nominated (Probably Not)

    Could end up as a Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom-style figure come Awards Season (although with less win potential in the acting categories). And, given we have 10 slots, it’s got a chance of getting in.

    I’m not so quick to put this on for BP yet because Sorkin isn’t necessarily the Oscars darling we all thought he was. Trial didn’t win a single award it was nominated for, Steve Jobs missed Screenplay, and he had a rocky history with AMPAS prior to TSN. It’s starting to feel like Da 5 Bloods where everyone thought it would be a contender simply by virtue of the fact that Spike Lee had a huge contender just a couple years before (I know someone made this comparison already, but still). I’m not sold on it

    I think the film will just be an acting awards player similar to the Steve Jobs film he wrote. Definitely see a screenplay snub happening. Make-up will be in play though.

    Surprisingly flat teaser trailer. Gave me “Hitchcock,” “Trumbo,” & “Hollywood” vibes on first view. Hiding Kidman for that long was … a choice. Bardem looks so out of place. Sorkin’s direction is still hit or miss, but I was one of the few who didn’t think that “Trial” was an abomination, so I’m open to seeing more footage.
