    They’ve got a pretty fat slate this year:

    The Farewell (Original Screenplay, Actress – Awkwafina)
    The Last Black Man in San Francisco (Picture, Director – Joe Talbot, Original Screenplay, Score, Cinematography)
    The Souvenir (Supporting Actress – Tilda Swinton, Original Screenplay)
    Gloria Bell (Actress – Julianne Moore)
    The Lighthouse (Picture, Director, Actor – Robert Pattinson, Supporting Actor – Willem Dafoe, Original Screenplay, Cinematography)
    Uncut Gems (Actor – Adam Sandler, Original Screenplay)
    Waves (Supporting Actor – Sterling K. Brown, Original Screenplay)
    Zola (Original Screenplay)

    What do we think? Are any of these possibilities? Or am I just a stan LOL!

    I definitely hope so, but the near complete absence of their films from nomination lists last year was almost entirely on them. They did virtually no campaigning for any of their big contenders last year for reasons that I still don’t understand. I genuinely do think Ethan Hawke (First Reformed) and Toni Collette (Hereditary) could have ultimately gotten nominations if A24 had actually tried. But they just didn’t care for some reason.

    The Farewell and The Last Black Man in San Francisco both seem like top-tier contenders though and I’m excited for both!

    I’m just scared that THE FAREWELL, being 85% Mandarin, will turn off voters.. and I know, I know that ROMA prevailed, but that was from a legend like Cuarón NOT a newcomer like Lulu Wang even though the latter is BRILLIANT

    I think farewell and waves are their strongest contention this year. If they make a big splash at the globes, I can see that translate to oscars. I also wouldnt underestimate waves in best score. especially considering that the music is playing a major role in the movie.

    If waves submits as a musical or comedy at the globes, I can see brown getting a best actor nomination. Best actor comedy is a wasteland right now.
