    Mank missing in Picture and Director again…I’ve been toying with the idea that the Globes will snub it in Drama too but I’m not brave enough to predict it.

    I could see it go the same way as First Man.

    Ok i keep seeing this so let me ask: Are critics groups supposed to nominate something they don’t think is worthy of nominating just t0 be edgy in a year where a bunch of movies, that would probably be big players in at least some categories, were delayed?

    Acting branch is not touching that movie. If I’m not mistaken, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind was the last Kaufman movie to be truly embraced by the Academy.

    Not to mention he wasn’t even the director of that film. I’m Thinking of Ending Things is my favorite movie of the year, but there’s no way it’s coming near Best Actress. It has a real shot at an Adapted Screenplay nomination, though.

    Uh.. is Jessie Buckley going to knock someone out of a spot, and ultimately become a best actress nominee? She’s been hanging right with the big girls with these nominations…

    Jessie Buckley was my Best Actress winner, until I saw Haley Bennett in Swallow; wish she had won a critics award somewhere. I wonder if BAFTA will actually go for her since they have 6 nominees.

    Unfortunately no (even though she would be very deserving). Netflix don’t even have a campaign for I’m Thinking of Ending Things outside Kauffman’s screenplay (which they really are pushing) and I don’t think the actors branch will go for her performance or the film.

    Whilst she has been doing quite well it’s worth baring in mind that she has only received 8 critics nominations which is still behind not only the top 3 of McDormand, Mulligan and Davis but also Kirby and even Flanigan.

    FYC:

    "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")

    I have and Mads was great, buts there’s just no one I could knock out of that group. Hoping he’s able to get a globe nom though.

    I see the Online Film Critics really liked NRSA, but I liked seeing Talia Ryder nominated.

    I promise you there is more to the world of cinema than whatever the four Hollywood studios and their subsidiaries are producing in a given year.

    The problem is that many of the nominations lately make it look like they did not watch movies this year—they have just been watching the awards season.  You ask any film critic what their favourite films and performances are and none of them are going to align with the Oscars unless their name is Peter Travers. These people watch movies all year for a living and all of this is subjective.  This level of consensus is so unlikely. For these groups to come up with the same exact sets suggests that they lazily did not take a moment to consider everything that they had seen and recall what they actually responded to. It suggests that they just looked up who is leading the odds or who was nominated yesterday and decided that those looked good enough. When it comes to something like the Oscars that has thousands of voters or even Critics’ Choices that is allegedly voted on by hundreds, stray votes for fringe contenders are going to be immaterial and consensus is going to take hold.  But just from how many ties we see with these critic awards (or three-way ties for runner-up), we know that these groups are small enough that for their nominees to be so boring indicates not a lack of imagination, but effort against imagination.
