Sad. It’s like they overly awarded one crappy biopic (by overly awarded, I mean gave it any awards attention whatsoever) because they got so overtaken by Queen’s music that it’s now to the point where they can’t adequately give possibly some deserved award attention to other riskier biopics that may actually be filmed well, have good screenplays, and actually evolve that genre in some capacity. Not saying Stardust is it without watching it, but it seems to be what’s happening now.
Well Stardust is definitely not gonna deserve though. It’s not even being made with Bowie’s family’s permission and won’t have any of his music.November 10, 2020 at 8:23 am #1203826810
So Seyfried is definitely going to win, isn’t she??
Seyfriend probably climaxed when she went online today. I wouldn’t say definitely because there’s still Colman and the Academy may just decide to break stats. But yes, her award path turned way easier todayNovember 10, 2020 at 8:30 am #1203826833

Wow! Then this will either be a giant bore, or some miracle achievement where they somehow pull off a great bio film worthy of attention despite not having any of the music from the artist. I don’t see how the latter can happen.November 10, 2020 at 8:33 am #1203826841
The way the embargo for one of Netflix’s most high profile shows and one of Netflix’s most high profile films with big names lifted at the same time and one got a 96% score and the other got a 18% score.
Netflix is a mess.

I went to sleep and I wake up to a 20% Rotten Tomatoes score?! Bitch what the fuck. I was expecting it to underwhelm but this is disastrous.
Ok but I’m still not removing Glenn. Doubt she’s winning, but I cannot bring myself to not predict her for a nomination. Amy is out though.November 10, 2020 at 9:15 am #1203827009
We all knew this would be terrible though, didn’t we?
I had a feeling this could be trainwreck but I always had hope it would get, at least, into mediocre territory.
The way I had a nightmare about 6 months ago in which HE had receveid exaclty 20% on RT is sending me.November 10, 2020 at 9:20 am #1203827023

Haha. I had a dream Fincher won all the precursors and lost Best Director at the Oscars…November 10, 2020 at 10:01 am #1203827119
Okay, since we’ve talked too much about this film’s Oscar probability, why don’t we also talk about its chance to get some Razzies?

At best it’s too safe and at worst it’s laughably bad. It will probably get a lot of backlash, but that didn’t stop Green Book. I don’t think Glenn can win for something so critically trashed, right? It would make sense to ignore the movie altogetherNovember 10, 2020 at 10:38 am #1203827217
I wonder if this movie would have fared better when a better director who took the book for what it actually is and didn’t shy away from it. It didn’t have to extol the virtues of libertarianism/social conservatism but they could actually show it. It could have actually been a real look into the community that doesn’t get much representation. Sort of like how Coal Miner’s Daughter was a daring and rare insight into real coal country poverty until Loretta got famous and it became a run-of-the-mill bio pic. Before that it was actually offering something unique and even thought-provoking.November 10, 2020 at 11:19 am #1203827306
Looks like we have our first “this had Oscar buzz” film. Close and the Makeup could still be nominated but that’s it.
Edit: I forgot about French Exit. I guess this is the 2nd “this had Oscar buzz” film.
