    It’s AT LEAST this year’s Straight Outta Compton. It has even better reviews and it will likely be a hit at the box office, which will help gather conversation. It’s going to be an essential movie about police brutality and racism in 2018. It might not have that many nominations going for it, but Gold Derby doesn’t even have it as an option to put on for Adapted Screenplay, which I think seems very possible. People can’t seem to get past the “young adult” vibe but everyone who’s seen it seems to think it’s a pretty significant movie. I’m not saying it will be nominated for sure, I just think we need to be looking out for it more than we are. It’s going to sneak up on you.

    I’ve heard this a few times from folks familiar not only with the book but who got early looks at the film as well.

    You’re absolutely right that the YA Fiction source material is allowing certain folks to (wrongly, so I hear) judge it or reduce it. Which is surprising to me, because the YA perspective is exactly why this take on this tragically relevant topic feels so fresh.

    What I’m hoping for is that, like GHOST WORLD (adapted from a comic) or JULIE & JULIA (adapted from, among other things, a blog), we can see it break in with the Writing branch of the Academy, assuming it’s as deserving as it sounds. If it is this year’s STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON, then an Adapted nod could be in its future, at the very least.

    The trailer really shook my friends and I when we saw it in the theaters for the first time, and it sounds like it delivers.

    Moderators: Can we get this film on the Adapted contender category for the Prediction Center, please?

    I think this film could be a potential surprise this awards season.

    Teen films never do all that well. Just look at Perks and that had traction in screenplay. This doesn’t have traction anywhere.

    Yea unfortunately despite how great the movie might be, I don’t think its relevance will be able to overcome the YA bias, which is sad.

    I was literally coming on here to post in the Best Actress thread to say that we should keep an eye out for Amandla Stenberg (not to win, but as a nominee). Also according to Indiewire Russell Hornsby is a contender in supporting actor. I’ve been hearing rumblings from industry folk that this movie has got the goods and could potentially be the surprise contender of the season

    The last couple years (especially with the new voting body) have all seen one or two contenders from genre’s that don’t usually get attention. Not saying it will happen, but I’ve heard it’s possible. Of course take this with even less than a grain of salt, but a friend of mine went to a screening of a Star is Born for his job and was chatting with a bunch of critics, they all told him this was the movie to keep an eye on this awards season

    This year has too much competition. The YA thing stands in its way and you would still have people not taking it as seriously as, say, BlacKKKlansman. But this does have wayyyy better reviews than Perks of Being a Wallflower ever did.

    The screenwriter tragically passed away. While terrible news, I just added her to my predictions.

    Just came back from a screening of The Hate U Give and it blew me away! This movie definitely needs to be in the awards conversation!!!

    Consider it a contender for:

    Best Picture
    Best Adapted Screenplay
    Best Actress: Amandla Stenberg (what a performance!)

    And if the movie really takes off this weekend:

    Best Supporting Actor: Russell Hornsby
