Here’s my daily spam/reminder that Florence Pugh should be sweeping up every award this season for Midsommar but we’re never going to get that because people are too basic.September 12, 2019 at 6:50 am #1203070857
Natalie Portman is officially out Lucky in the Sky is getting negative reviews.September 12, 2019 at 8:30 am #1203071036
I feel like it’s important to wait for some of these movies to be released and watch how their reactions play out from the general public, box office and additional critics.
Cynthia Erivo might be underestimated right now because her film received mild reviews (most complaints being that her film goes the typical boring biopic route). But what if the box office becomes huge for Harriet? What if a narrative is promoted about the legend never having a movie about her until now and that everyone must go see it? What if Oprah gets involved??? Campaigning and advertising could go a long way… and if it does… the reviews won’t matter as much. Ask last year’s 4-time Oscar-winning biopic film Bohemian Rhapsody.
Harriet is not going to gross 700M WW lol Ervio’s personal reviews arent even that strong. Just let it go.September 12, 2019 at 8:47 am #1203071056
A lot of black people are calling to #boycottHarriet on twitter. The fact that its target audience is calling for a Boycott means that it’ll flop massively.September 12, 2019 at 9:23 am #1203071086

No and I never expected it to make THAT kind of money. But say the biopic ends up being a hit and makes about $40 to $50 mill at the Box Office. That’s enough for it to factor into the Oscar race in a big way.
I’m not going to “let it go” and neither should you. It’s early days in this race. I’m not saying Erivo is definitely going to be nominated, I’m just saying it’s too early to write her off for what is clearly an Oscar-bait role and not to ignore other factors that could effect the Oscar race. But clearly you already know who the 5 nominees will end up being somehow, so congrats to you and your crystal ball.
And just a reminder… Harriet is at 65 on Metacritic, Judy is at 66 and Bohemian Rhapsody ended up at a 49, so… anything can happen.September 12, 2019 at 9:38 am #1203071099
Our girl deserved better.
I have faith in her performance in LITTLE WOMEN. Early word is quite strong about her turn as Amy March and her great work in MIDSONMAR and FIGHTING WITH MY FAMILY will just boost her Oscar buzz 🙂

“Lucy in the Sky contains a scene where a frenzied Natalie Portman ravages a convenience store before purchasing a blonde wig and a combat knife in the same transaction and it might be the most significant 30 seconds of cinema in film history!!!!!!!”September 12, 2019 at 9:50 am #1203071109
Lucy in the Sky debuting at a 32 on MC, even lower than Naomi Watt’s Diana.September 12, 2019 at 9:58 am #1203071111
Man, Fox Searchlight really had a rough year. The only film that even has a chance of getting into Picture is A Hidden Life, and considering how little traction Malick’s films usually get that will probably just be a Cinamatography nominee.September 12, 2019 at 9:58 am #1203071115

This girl is the Kate Winslet of our generation. Ronan is going to be second on her type-list behind this girl.
