This looks amazing! And Timmy is so lovely…August 13, 2019 at 11:35 am #1203022096
Never has a trailer won me over like this. I love Greta and the cast is amazing, but a Little Women remake is not exactly the most exciting. It feels contemporary, but classic. It feels emotional and heartfelt. The performances look great. I think there’s obviously Ronan, but Chalamet is a centre point in here. Then there’s Pugh, Watson, Dern and Streep. I’m very excited now.August 13, 2019 at 12:14 pm #1203022177
Love all the filmbros coming out of the woodwork to deride this… and based on what? Because you didn’t like a woman gaining a whole bunch of awards attention for an awards-magnet a couple years back? Hate to break it to you, but that’s the same story for your favorite directors, too. Stay angry that Gerwig got her first director nomination at the same time Nolan did, and that she’s better than he’ll ever be.
100% agree with this. I couldn’t help but feel that the hate towards Gerwig comes from subconscious misogyny.
I think this looks great. Ronan and Pugh look like standouts. It looks relevant, fun, and beautiful. I think this’ll be great and be a phenomenal companion piece to Lady Bird.
I think this’ll get nominated for:
Best Actress- Saoirse Ronan
Best Supporting Actress- Florence Pugh
Best Adapted Screenplay
Maybe even Gerwig for director.August 13, 2019 at 1:07 pm #1203022241
She might not make it in at the Oscars, but at the very least the Globes will nominate her to make up for her highly publicized Lady Bird snub.August 13, 2019 at 1:31 pm #1203022296
Welp. Saoirse coming to do what she had to do.. again. Ugh, we stan a future multiple Oscar winner.
Also, Timmy. Sexy.August 13, 2019 at 1:50 pm #1203022339

Ronan is Lead and being nominated.
I won’t predict Chalamet because he was mentioned multiple times in screening reactions as miscast.
Now Supporting Actress:
I’m predicting Pugh because of the “MVP” comments from screenings, but I would watch out for Watson. Dern and Streep won’t ruin their chances for Marriage Story and The Laundromat nominations and Watson seems to have bigger roles then them. Though in one of the screening reactions, they said she was miscast, I believe that was just one person (unlike Chalamet) and she has a substantial storyline in this film.August 13, 2019 at 2:00 pm #1203022349
Timothée Chalamet can get it.August 13, 2019 at 2:05 pm #1203022355
Timothee Chalamet… aka the new Leo DiCaprio. A jack of all trades and an amazing romantic leading man.August 13, 2019 at 2:14 pm #1203022365
Tim looks good, Streep is gonna slay her part as usual (however small it is) and Saoirse really wants that Oscar. Looks like she’s getting that 4th nom
Overall I’m just like.. whatever. After the terrific The Favourite last year, I just don’t see period pieces the same wayAugust 13, 2019 at 2:25 pm #1203022377
Boring. It a kind of reminds me of The Beguiled (another super boring costume drama). Nice costumes, production design and cinematography though
I don't know who to STAN yetAugust 13, 2019 at 2:26 pm #1203022383
After viewing the trailer I am very excited for to be released. This movie can definitely contend in a number of categories, but I don’t think it’ll come anywhere near winning best picture.August 13, 2019 at 2:29 pm #1203022387
Will Mavity posted on Twitter a list of Oscar nominations each previous film adaptation of Little Women has received.
Best Director (George Cukor)
Best Adapted Screenplay (Victor Heerman & Sarah Y. Mason)*
Best Art Direction-Color (Cedric Gibbons, Paul Groesse, Edwin B. Willis, & Jack D. Moore)
*Best Cinematography-Color (Robert H. Planck & Charles Edgar Schoenbaum)
Best Actress (Winona Ryder)
Best Costume Design (Colleen Atwood)
Best Original Score (Thomas Newman)
Katharine Hepburn won Oscar the same year she starred in “Little Women”, although for “The Morning Glory”.
I’m casually optimistic about this film and I’m fairly sure it will have the most nominations among all adaptations of this story (that being more than 3).August 13, 2019 at 2:37 pm #1203022391
I know people are talking about how Florence Pugh is having a great year with this and Midsommar, but I’d like to add that Laura Dern has been consistently killing it these past two years. The Tale, both seasons of Big Little Lies, Twin Peaks, plus Marriage Story and this film coming out.
