    Well they didn’t nominate J-Hud last year for Cats.

    Yeah but they nominated Judi Dench, who I don’t think even got particularly bad notices.

    I think this film’s Razzie potential is dependent on if it goes into infamous territory on a mainstream level. Right now it’s being made fun of by awards pundits and so on, but it’s possible the general public just overlooks the whole thing.

    I really hope this gets nothing, but let’s be real, the only potential Oscar nominee now is Glenn Close. If the Academy hates Amy Adams enough to SNUB her for Arrival, I don’t think she’s getting in Actress. Adapted Screenplay is too competitive. I don’t think Netflix will try to do a Director play. Best Picture would have to require Extremely Loud and Terribly Close level brute force marketing for a pity nomination.

    So if Glenn Close gets naught, it can be discussed on This Had Oscars Buzz.

    If Hillbilly Elegy is like a 55% RT score film, I think Glenn Close is still likely to win SA but now, I don’t see her winning anymore. Maybe she can get nominated but that one is a 50/50 chance.

    I did this. I hexed Hillbilly Elegy in February, and the film flopped.

    As long as you don’t hex Sunset Boulevard or Glenn’s next Oscar vehicles, I’m okay with you girl.

    Like I have said, I want Glenn to win, I just don’t want it to be a win for Hillbilly Elegy as well.

    I think it gets a makeup nom no matter what, especially with that video footage of the real Mamaw at the end. It also has two Oscar-winners in the makeup team.

    I forgot to mention this before, but I definitely think the general public will be favorable to the film. It will be relatable for those that grew up in small, run-down towns and certainly for anyone whose family has gone through drug addiction.

    I would absolutely be SHOCKED if this film was nominated for any Razzie. It’s most certainly not on that level, and no where even close of being as terrible as a film as CATS.

    It’s so strange to me that now since the critics have turned against the movie, the bulk of Gold Derby has too. Why are you all letting the critics speak for you, especially since the bulk of you haven’t seen the film?

    C’mon, you’re better than that.

    people have been mocking this film since trailer was out. But I agree with you at some extent.

    The trailer is more melodramatic than the film is. The scenes fit well when all played together as a whole.

    I’m not so sure about that. One of the biggest things critics have, well, criticized it for is that the town and setting is a caricature that’s not developed at all, and that it has so little to say about Appalacia. And the characters have been receiving similar criticisms. I don’t think audiences are going to relate to this film at all if it’s anything like the critics say it is.

    The other biggest criticism was the fact that all of the politics were removed, so it’s not like conservatives will embrace this: they’ll probably hate it more than anyone else since they’ll say it’s “PC-ified” or whatever.

    But you know the Razzies are not about the worst performances/films of the year right? If they see a possibility of capitalizing on Hillbilly, they will shower this with nods.
