    LOL.Teridax, i’m glad you finally saw the light, but you don’t have to worry. Three Billboards aint winning DGA.

    But it is winning SAG Ensemble, BAFTA Best Film and and quite possibly PGA.

    That doesn’t mean it’s winning the Best Picture Oscar though.

    It CAN. It is the frontrunner. It ticks all the boxes, aligns with all the stats and hit all the precursors it should have.

    I forgot about Del Toro and Nolan briefly LOL! Whatever. It doesn’t need to win DGA just like Spotlight and Moonlight didn’t. Do you think it will win both Best British Film and Best Picture at Bafta? People seem to agree that Darkest Hour will win the former but I can see the voters deciding not to spread the wealth and just give it both. Those Bafta nominations basically ended the season for me as far as suspense is concerned about who will win Lead Actress, Supporting Actor, Original Screenplay, and Picture at the Oscars. All denial will do is make the pain and anger far worse than if I just accepted reality. Now, it is just a matter of waiting until Oscar night on March 4th for the inevitable to occur…

    Best British Film will probably go to a British Indie, God’s Own Country or The Death od Stalin.

    There has been an outcry over the years because big, Oscar films dominate a category that was intended to honor and hero British cinema and emerging talent. Many also questioned why Three Billboards and Darkest Hour were competing in Best British Film, when they got ample recognition in other categories.

    As last years winner shows, they are probably moving away from awarding Oscar films in this category.

    Three Billboards is a PERSONAL story about dealing with RAGE and GRIEF.
    If you think it was about any political issue, then you have been spending too much time on Twitter. Or you’re just dumb, idk.

    I think that Darkest Hour will win Best British Film. I think that the BAFTA voters want to give the film more love besides Oldman.

    I’m still in denial about this one. Billboards gets extra credit because its female protagonist is fighting back, but the movie seriously loses its way in the second half. It can’t decide what it’s trying to do. Good performances though.

    Three Billboards has a racist cop who tortured a black person and never atones for his racism, since his heroic arc comes because of a white woman’s murdered daughter, which he had nothing to do with. If you don’t see the problematic handling of his arc (as even many defenders of Billboards do) then maybe you need to pay more attention to the actual film itself? Objectively speaking, It does try to tackle many issues, I just believe it fails, while many believe it succeeds. Regardless, those issues are prevalent in the film not only due to its subject matter but due to the idiotic (and needlessly racist) character of Officer Jason Dixon. ????

    Ugh, what a disgusting movie and wjat a disgusting character Sam Rockwell plays. I hate him so fucking much.

    As a famous singer said, "ain't nobody gonna Thatcher, Thatcher, Thatcher!"

    Martin McDonagh: I’ve read things. And I can totally see where the backlash is coming from. But I don’t think I redeem [Dixon], or forgive him, or try to make him a hero because the point is that there are no heroes or villains. The film isn’t about good and bad, left and right. It’s just trying to find the spark of humanity in people – all people. And that’s what it should be, or why start a film?

    You talk like Dixon gets a heroic happy endling.
    He gets the chance to learn something through all the shit that happened to him and with Willoughby’s letter, but he fails to. And ultimately both he and Mildred succumb to their anger.

    Because in the real world (and often in the movie world) people are inherently horrible and/or does horrible things yet still can be helpful in other ways. No punishment was needed, because most people don’t get a punishment. Dixon is a sh*tty racist, like Mildred is sh*tty mother. The movie forces us to look past that. It’s all indeed nihilistic, manipulative and designed to make the audience uncomfortable.
