    Roma La La Land winning Best Picture is obvious for reasons I have clearly stated and been ignored on a million times already. I don’t think this thread even needs to exist. If Cuarón loses DGA where seemingly the closest BP competition at Bafta and the Oscars The Favourite was snubbed, only then will there be a real race for this Oscar category again. As of now, only Roma La La Land appears to have the passionate consensus.

    lol

    The Favorite not getting in for Best Ensemble isn’t an issue- the film has three great female performances at its center and other strong performances surrounding them, but the film focuses too much on the three women to really call it a great ensemble film. Furthermore SAG has been nominating some pretty oddball choices in that category that have very little success in terms of Oscar nominations/wins(if any) for a long time:Get Shortly, How To Make An American Quilt, Birdcage, Waking Ned, The Station Agent, Bobby, Hustle & Flow, 3:10 To Yuma, American Gangster, Hairspray, Nine, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, The Butler, Beasts Of No Nation, Trumbo, The Big Sick, Mudbound, and Crazy Rich Asians. It’s hardly equivalent to how the Academy votes for Best Picture so people need to stop wasting their time on that statistic. It’s lack of a DGA nod is somewhat odd but the director did get in at the Oscars so it doesn’t really seem that material when it comes down to it. I think if it does win it will be because Roma will be seen as overhyped, Green Book’s support will have faded, and Black Klansman won’t have enough momentum to take it. The Favorite is a rather offbeat film however and like Joyce said in one of the slugfests the older branch of the Academy may not find it appealing enough to reward it. I still think that Roma will win in the end though.

    Personally, I thought the ending was very poignant.

    I agree. The ending was great, and probably one of the best scenes in the film. The character in question, regains her confidence and develops a backbone.

    Very surprised to see A Star Is Born plummeting in the odds and it appears that everyone is abandoning it like rats from a sinking ship.

    I’m unchanged. A Star Is Born is still my pick for Best Picture.

    Its not winning sadly because of the Director snub. However I want it to win.

    SAG voters probably didn’t nominate The Favourite for ensemble because the three leads were nominated in their individual categories and they, basically, make up the entire cast. A best ensemble nomination would feel redundant.

    Well, there was Hoult, the rest of the politicians, and the ducks and bunnies/rabbits (the mvps), so I mean . . .

    “No user starts this shady” - someone culturally relevant.

    Also got banned because...reasons? So, I guess ciao.

    it’d be true poetic justice if the favourite ends up winning after all the snubs it had this season

    Rooting Green Book more than BlacKkKlansman? The bad taste jumped out.

    A Flop is Dead. Someone put it out of its misery. And thank god we can put that Bohemian Rhapsody crap back in the dumpster where it belongs.

    Klansman was never winning SAG.

    It’s path is DGA + WGA

    ROMA

    Frontrunner since Venice.

    The Academy was never going to give BP to the 4rd remake of a Cliché story starring Lady “lack of charisma” Gaga and republican icon Bradley Cooper.

    If there is a race its between Roma and Green Book.

    Yorgos is one of my idols and he will win Best Film…Best British film at BAFTAs.

    ^who is this “we” who need to get a “backlash” campaign to harm Roma’s chances? If it doesn’t win it will be because of foreign language bias. Roma is very likely going to win Best Picture and some of us want it to win. It was my #1 movie of 2018. It is extremely rare for my #1 movie to be in contention/front-runner for the Oscar so I am incredibly pleased.

    I know you don’t like the movie. What movie out of the 8 are you rooting for?
