    I am sorry,I could be wrong.All Cannes,Berlin and Venice are top 3 film festivals but I still think Venice is biggest and most prestigious film festival being the oldest at 87yrs whereas Cannes is 72yrs and Berlin 69yrs.

    Lol being the oldest doesn’t equal being the most important. If you look up you’ll find Cannes is regarded as the most important.

    Probably still strong. Unlike Jojo Rabbit, Joker still has a strong score on Metacritic, which indicates that it is still getting overwhelmingly strong support from most critics. Plus, Joker seems to appeal more to the older base of voters, who gave Green Book the win and Bohemian Rhapsody the most nominations after both received mixed reviews and controversy. If SJW critics couldn’t sink those films, I doubt they’ll sink this one.

    For Your Consideration.

    Here you go,3 websites saying Venice as the biggest film festival.That is what I think.In terms of film festivals and awards the older you are,the more prestigious you are.

    Oscars,Emmy,Tony are oldest awards of their types in that manner and are most prestigious.

    All Venice,Berlin and Cannes are Big 3 and winning Best Film on either of these 3 is huge for any film.

    There’s only one problem: the sites you provided are not ranking by importance. They just happened to choose to describe Venice first. Whereas the links I provided make it clear that Cannes is more important.

    Aside from the third link you posted, the first two are not even numbered, suggesting it is not necessarily ranked.

    The 3rd one attributes numbers, but then it puts Tribeca in 3rd place and Taormina (!) in 4th, and Berlin in 7th which is clearly not accurate. Berlin should be below Venice or (according to you) Cannes on relevance

    They carry more weight because they are voted by the industry, not because they are the oldest awards in their respective fields. Golden Globes and Drama Desk Awards are also extremely old, only around a decade younger than the Oscars and Tonys, yet they have very little worth compared to their industry counterparts, mostly because they aren’t peer awards.

    As for the Cannes-Venice debate, I thought it was widely accepted that Cannes is the biggest film festival, wasn’t it?

    I myself prefer Palme D Or winner over Golden Lion and Golden Bear but as far I have researched Venice is biggest film festival being most oldest.

    I am not so sure still however.

    Match your possible Best Actor leaders, except for De Niro in The Irishman & Ian McKellen in The Great Life in  Banderas & DiCaprio’s slots

     

    ANY IDEAS, I NEVER GET E MAIL UPDATES, EVEN AFTER ALWAYS HITTINGTHE BELOW TABS?

    Adam Driver – Marriage Story
    Jonathan Pryce – The Two Popes
    Antonio Banderas – Pain & Glory
    Eddie Murphy – Dolemite Is My Name
    Joaquin Phoenix – Joker

    I’m excited to see the reception for Doctor Sleep when it opens in November. Could Ewan McGregor be a contender?
