    I don’t think it’ll get far best picture wise, but Robert Downey Jr’s performance, I’d say despite it being a superhero flick is nomination worthy.

    I think it is worthy to be nominated, but I can’t imagine Acadmey voters actually thinking the same. Personally I think they’ll treat it like they did Force Awakens, and give it a few tech nominations.

    I think it’s very likely Endgame breaks into Original Score, the Sounds and the usual VFX and maybe other tech categories, and maaaayyybbee Robert Downey Jr. gets considered for an acting nod if things go well, but even that would be an uphill battle because of genre bias, unfortunately.

    How about for Best Adapted Screenplay? Logan did get a nomination a couple of years ago.

    In the year of Logan, adapted screenplay was empty. There were not many options. This is rarely the case and to me, Logan was an exception. Not to mention that Logan is not your typical superhero movie and probably this appealed to writers. Of all branches, I think writers (and maybe directors) are the ones mostly in opposition of superhero movies in general.

    Not surprised they’re pushing for it after Black Panther.

    Does it stand a chance though? Not really.

    Black Panther was a proper cultural movement on the big screen. Endgame is the culmination of the current phase of a massive franchise, but does not have the cultural impact that Black Panther has.

    How about for Best Adapted Screenplay? Logan did get a nomination a couple of years ago.

    Logan was the brainchild of director/writer who was always been Oscar adjacent, had the benefit of being the most acclaimed of the genre since Dark Knight, composed essentially as modern-western and had a legitimate acting contender in Sir Patrick Stewart.

    And Adapted Screenplay was the pits, look at the other contenders that could’ve been instead of the actual five.

    The Beguiled — Never gonna happen.
    Wonder — A box office hit but it’s a family film with just okay reception based on a picture book.
    All the Money in the World — Outside of Plummer, the Was gonna need to be an all or nothing for the film, period.
    Wonder Woman – would’ve been a terrible look for the films only nominated to be for three men.
    Victoria & Abdul — Has a Stephen Fears old lady when it wasn’t a BP contender.
    Last Flag Flying — Classic “this had Oscar buzz” movie
    Blade Runner 2049 — Would’ve likely gotten in if it had gotten BP.
    Lost City of Z — Way too small to gather attention.
    Wonderstruck — Too difficult watch for the Academy.
    Beauty and the Beast — I have to laugh.
    Star Wars: The Last Jedi — Probably would’ve made it if there wasn’t an insane weird fan backlash.
    Murder on the Orient Express — Never gonna happen, lol.
    Stronger — Would only happen if Gyllenhaal did.
    Films Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool — Don’t have anything to say about this.
    First They Killed My Father — DOA Outside of Foreign Film, plus Netflix had Mudbound.

    It’s gonna make close to 3 billion dollars, so a failed Oscar campaign isn’t gonna hurt anybody, especially if they realize midway through the campaign that it’s not gonna happen, like it happens to many other films each year. Or maybe they won’t realize shit and will keep pushing it ‘til the end, but with so much money, it’s worth a try.

    Plus, Marvel might be delusional like many other people and might actually believe that Black Panther got a BP nomination because it was such a great film. So they could still be on that fake high and think this is also gonna work because a door has been opened, when it was actually not. All they have going for them is money. They would need to turn this around and look for an angle that works for them like Black Panther, ‘cause I don’t think “it made so much money” will be enough.

    Because it deserved so much more than it got in its awards season. This should’ve got in easily over Logan.

    Jamie Bell should have been up for Best Actor, and the film for Best Picture, just to name two additionals.

    It really did deserve better, Sony clearly had other horses in the race and and just sadly shoved it to the wasteside.

    If they push RDJ (and they should), they have to go lead for him. It’s only respectful to his performance and the legacy he gave as a result. And the Oscars have to give him the nomination for that.

    I wonder if Scarlett Johansson could also get a nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

    Oscars 2021: I support Denis Villeneuve (Dune), David Fincher (Mank), Willem Dafoe (The Card Counter), and Glenn Close (Hillbilly Elegy).

    Movie-lover overall.

    As long as the Academy’s genre bias is entrenched, we’re going to see a stream of arthouse films winning Best Picture. Star Wars in 1977 losing to the, at the time, the worst BP of the decade, Annie Hall. Avatar losing to The Hurt Locker. Force Awakens getting f’d over. The hatred of a billion suns the membership has towards, gasp…four quadrant blockbusters with massive critic endorsement is primal.
