    Okay now I’m worried for Nomadland. It’s already been touted as the frontrunner for months now, which is a dangerous position to be in. Now top critics groups are finding alternatives, albeit one being Oscar-ineligible and the other a huge long-shot. But it slightly robs Nomadland of its legitimacy as the critical consensus choice, which a quiet indie movie like this may need to remain unchallenged. I hope I’m not overreacting here.

    You said it yourself : there isn’t any strong alternative for now. It’s not like Moonlight and La La Land going back and forth or something, Nomadland clearly is the critical favorite for now (but we’re only at the beginning anyway)

    FYC :

    Best Actress - Viola Davis, Frances McDormand
    Best Actor - Delroy Lindo, Chadwick Boseman
    Best Supporting Actor - Colman Domingo, Glynn Turman
    Best Picture - Nomadland
    Best Director - Chloé Zhao
    SAG Ensemble - Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom
    Best Cinematography - Nomadland

    It’s actually a good thing it’s not sweeping everything. Winning practically every critics award didn’t work well for Boyhood and the only reason Moonlight could prevail at the end is because La La Land seemed undeniable.

    Yes, maybe you’re right. I hope so.

    I don’t think Small Axe would have won if theaters were open. Because the pandemic everyone is watching everything the same way and we can’t be bothered to care about distinctions.

     

    But also Small Axe is a five film series. If they just gave Best Film to Lover’s Rock I don’t think anybody would be as confused.

    What angers me most about the Small Axe argument is that even if it wasn’t a series for television and hadn’t always been commissioned as one

    This. It’s not even like it was originally conceived my McQueen as a series to films to Amazon, it was a ****ing tv drama commissioned by the terrestrial network broadcast BBC One in the UK first, Amazon just happened to pick it up.

    I mean I didn’t see any of them rushing to argue that Lifetime movies or the new Dolly Parton netflix film (also part of a series lol) are cinema.

    It’s exactly like the critics who included Twin Peaks on their best of lists in 2017. **** off and stop being a pretentious little such-and-such, it’s a 3rd season of a 90s whodunnit ABC show with 18 episodes, nothing about it was even presenting itself as a film.

    It’s dismissive towards an entire medium that they still view as “lesser than” and makes them looks greedy and embarrassing.

    This entire time we’ve been debating wether Davis, McDormand, Mulligan etc will win Best Actress when we should’ve been looking out for Michaela Coel, Billie Piper and Anya Taylor-Joy.

    Television has been putting out far better content than their Film counterparts for a while now. I see this win as a confirmation of that, even if it is egregiously pretentious and stupid.

    #1203935960

    Small Axe is great, but it shouldn’t have been eligible for Best Film. It’s a miniseries.

    #1203935966

    I’m really happy for Carey. Promising Young Woman looks SO good and I hope that her Oscar buzz continues to grow.

    Hypothetically, if Lovers Rock was released independently of Small Axe, would it be a strong contender?

    Aside from lafca, it’s also top 3 on critics’ t10 lists so far.

    It’s wonderful but I don’t think it would’ve played with awards groups very well. Mangrove would’ve propably done the best in non-critics awards circus imo.

    We also have the Chicago wins.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    Judas and the Black Messiah and The United States Vs. Billie Holiday are the only big ones left to be seen right? Any chance either of these could end up becoming a challenger?
