    The thing Flanigan has going for her is “the scene”. It’s a powerhouse showcase of her talents.

    One thing is for certain though and that is Flanigan is 100% locked for the Indie Spirit nomination. Might even win (although she faces tough competition for the win).

    It depends on who you saw “in the conversation” as IMO, Flannigan was “in the conversation” before. In fact it was in The Best Actress thread on this forum where I first heard of Never Rarely Sometimes Never. Either way, she’s “in the conversation” now. Doesn’t mean she’ll get a nomination, but she’s not coming out of nowhere if she receives one. Just like if Eighth Grade or Martha Marcy May Marlene had somehow gotten with Oscar. You’d be saying they were “in the conversation”.

    I don’t consider her to have been ‘in the conversation’ previously when most of those few mentions were either not related to predictions at all or were throwaway comments. We’ll have to disagree on that then.

    Eighth Grade did get in at multiple relevant precursors and was being considered for noms much before so yes it was in the conversation. Wasn’t following awards in 2011 so can’t comment on Martha…but it does look like a critics only thing.

    Anyway, I was more or less disagreeing with the statement that many Oscars winners have started as ‘critics things’, at least in recent years.

    Never Rarely Sometimes Always is still the best film of this year, to me, and would’ve been last year in my mind too if it was released then. I wish it had gotten the top prize but Sidney as the face of the film for critics with a Screenplay push too, I can’t complain. And I don’t even think it’s that inaccessible, to be honest (unless you’re vehemently anti-abortion).

    That, obviously First Cow, and Da 5 Bloods came out of this very well.

    I don’t think Flanigan will get in at the Oscars but the thing that is really being underestimated on here is that her film is one we know people in the industry have seen and liked. It came out when there was a dearth of films and was quite buzzy around its release date. It’s one that as a result of its buzz with audiences and critics made it on to lots of critics and some cinephile audience lists. If voters fall back on things they saw earlier then I think she could potentially do well.

    But then again we shouldn’t put too much into these critics awards and I’m finding it ironic some are saying at one point they are useless but at other points they are accurate barometers of what will happen because sometimes they suit and sometimes they fail the narrative they’re pushing. What is worth thinking about from these awards is that Flanigan (and Garner) have over-performed and won and got nominated for awards over people like Viola Davis, Vanessa Kirby, Carey Mulligan etc who in normal times would be dividing each of these three awards between them.  I personally think there is an over-reaction being made when people start to claim these awards mean so and so will get snubbed but they are very useful in telling us the buzz for each contender. I think both Flanigan and Garner are at least in the top 10 because their films and performances (like it or not and awards or not) have buzz.

    Anyway, I was more or less disagreeing with the statement that many Oscars winners have started as ‘critics things’, at least in recent years.

    Yeah I can’t think of any winners who have won when they started off as critics things? Brie Larson?

    We have had lots of nominees who have though like Penelope Cruz and Ruth Negga.

    I don’t like how they awarded Boseman for that but Da 5 Masterpiece is underrated af.

    Would be funny if it ended up winning Best Picture.

    So I checked and First Cow will probably become the first ever NYFCC Best Picture winner since its creation in 1935 to receive zero Oscar nomination..
    Its best chances are in Adapted Screenplay and Cinematography but it’s very unlikely.

    Hope this prize (and the other ones to come) will boost its chance, it’s maybe my favorite film of the year too.

    First Cow is the best film of 2020.

    Argh the fact that some of the best films of 2020 aren’t even available to watch here is so infuriating.

    I’m so happy that NRSA is getting so much love from critics, even if that won’t translate to Oscar buzz, it’ll definitely get in at the Indie Spirits. NRSA just had the unfortunate of being released right on the cusp of COVID, I think they were out a week before theatres shut down; and March honestly feels like a year ago at this point.

    It should be, Zengel got a newcomer mention at Chicago.
