    It’s the way Vanessa has got more critics noms less than a week after the release of her film than she did the entire last month. Are people still out there denying she had visibility issues (which is happening with The Father as well atm)?

    Just saying that SPC has sent a gazillion screeners to SAG (according to images on Twitter) of The Father recently. BAFTA have already seen it and the HFPA have also been sent the screeners.

    Just because it has low critics visibility it doesn’t mean it won’t ever get any visibility. All the awards shows WILL watch this film.

    "The Good Fight", "The Other Two" and "Station Eleven" in all categories, Sarah Lancashire ("Julia"), William Jackson Harper ("Love Life") and Luke Kirby ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel")

    Isn’t that exactly the point though? People have been underestimating both Pieces of A Woman and The Father far too early in the race. A lot of critics haven’t seen them, but all the major awards shows will—their performance with critics probably implies very little about how they’ll do at the Globes, SAG, BAFTA, etc.

    Yeah I was obviously talking about only critics groups…

    We’ve had leaked screeners for Minari, Nomadland, PYW etc for weeks now. That hasn’t been the case with The Father or Pieces of a Woman which just further proves my point.

    The Father has 12 reviews on Metacritic out of which 8 are from Sundance from last year. SPC is really doing a terrible job campaigning it. I saw some critic on twitter say it has the worst run campaign he has seen in recent years.

    I don’t see The Father being a big contender. It’s a great film, but what does it really say or offer? I don’t see there being strong passion for this.

    It offers a new perspective on dementia cinema audiences haven’t seen before, and with most if not everyone knowing someone suffering with similar experiences it is going to be a hit with voters and audiences. And considering the current pandemic there is bound to be passion for it.

    FYC:

    Swinton, Weerasethakul Memoria, (Best Actress, Director)
    Efira, Rampling, Wilson Benedetta (Best Actress, Supporting Actress/Actor)

    Its themes around loss and grief may seem more cathartic and poignant in the Covid era.

    I don’t get what’s going on? I am agreeing with both of you. It’s critics performance (and POAW’s is irrelevant). My point was that it IS being screened in the industry but its got low visibility with critics. Again critics |=| industry.

    With Houston, Soul finally has gotten a Best Picture nomination from a critics group. But can Soul prevail as a BP nominee at the Oscars without critics groups?

    Why couldn’t The Father at least get a recognition the way Ma Rainey got? Other than a bad campaign, this movie is a literal great movie (deserving its Metacritic score, not like the another) and no one can deny how good Florian Zeller is in his debut. An excellent piece of work with two big names in it, how can they deny it?

    The Father is doing just fine. Months ago it was only considered to be an actors vehicle. Now it seems locked for Picture, Zeller could get Director, Adapated Screenplay, the Editing is receiving some love… It looks pretty solid to me.

    This is exactly why most voters and general audiences will NOT be running to go see The Father.

    No one wants to sign up for watching a downer after everything that we have gone through in 2020 and continue to go through with the pandemic. Many people, including Academy members, have lost their parents or elderly relatives this past year. The film might present a subject matter too sensitive for people to want to embrace right now. It’s bad timing.

    The only reason why voters would tune in is for the buzzed about performance by Anthony Hopkins and to a lesser extent Olivia Colman. Even then, that might not be enough. I’m sure its a great film, but how many voters will really give it a chance?
