    So, a late-comer in the Oscars race is starting to get attention. Green Book.

    Directed by Peter Farrelly and starring Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali, this dramedy depicts a real-life tour of the Deep South by African-American pianist Don Shirley and New York bouncer Tony Lip, who served as Shirley’s driver and security.

    It is scheduled to premiere at TIFF next month and will be released in theaters on November 21.

    As of right now, there is starting to be speculation that this film could be nominated for Best Actor (Mortensen), Best Supporting Actor (Ali), and Best Original Screenplay.

    Thoughts?

    I don’t have faith in the team behind the scenes. I’m expecting Reception to be pool. Although Ali seems to have a flashy role, so maybe if he is great we can get a Hong Chau like campaign going (except hopefully successful)

    I saw something about this in Entertainment Weekly (last week I think?). Mortensen and Ali seem like a great pairing on paper so hopefully that translates well to the screen.

    The trailer was just released, and was one of the very best trailers I’ve ever seen. If it’s as good as the trailer, it’s a gonna be a contender as long as DreamWorks and Universal don’t decide to pull for other properties.. The ingredients are there: themes, story, tone, setting, and an Oscar winner and Oscar nominee in the mix. I disagree with the below comment about the team behind the scenes: there’s some underrated quality there–Farrelly, Burke, Wessler.

    I really liked the trailer. Ali looks excellent and he better not campaign as supporting. Mortensen seems like he was doing too much though, and I should mention I thought he should have won for Captain Fantastic. The trailer gives me faith until reviews come out. Also, Farrelyi does not have a good track record.

    After screening at TIFF, it got awesome and positive reviews, especially for Viggo Motensen and Mahershala Ali.

    I am excited about this since the release of trailer. I think it’s now on the same level as “Can you ever forget me” “The Old man and the gun”.

    Like I said days ago here and in other threads, we should not underestimate this film. It won’t be a threat to those BP contenders, but it will jump into several categories for sure.

    Viggo for Best Actor!!

    is there a possibility Ali could be nominated for Best Actor and not Supporting? I haven’t seen the film.

    I agree…I actually think he deserves a Best Director nod, but I might be in the minority w/that..

    Although I was not a big fan of the trailer, this looks like the latecomer of the season, the crowd-pleaser BP nominee. I now added it in my BP nominees predictions, though I don’t think it will blow up to Three Billboards-level of threat.

    Yeah, it won’t be as huge as 3billboards.

    Every TIFF people’s choice winner for 10 years has made it into the BP field…it’s hard to see it as a major threat, but it’ll wiggle in, and Supporting Actor is a weak field so Mahershala shouldn’t have a problem.

    I’d watch out for Viggo, too, he got in for Captain Fantastic the other year, a summer release, and the movie’s only nomination.
