    Saying that this isn’t going to be nominated across the board comes across as delusional.  This is a lock for best picture.  Beloved American classic with a female writer/director and a stacked cast with a major company behind it.  Sounds like you’ve got personal issues with successful women.

    I hope they don’t waste a slot on the perpetual bridesmaid. We all know she doesn’t have a chance in hell to win.

    I doubt it, Supporting actor will be packed and Little Women is not going to be a big contender. Saoirse is the film’s best bet.

    While I agree that Chalamet isn’t getting in, I believe Little Women will be a pretty big contender. I think Chalamet playing the swoon worthy love interest will hurt him, because that kind of role doesn’t seem to get much Oscar love. The early criticism leveled at his performance also doesn’t help. A lot can change about a film in the editing room, but performances don’t.

    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.

    For some odd reason, the Predictions board seems to be way more favorable towards Streep than anyone else.

    Four predictors have only Streep getting in.

    Two predictors have only Pugh getting in.

    One predictor has both Streep and Pugh getting in.

    One predictor has both Streep and Watson getting in.

    Four predictors have Streep not only getting in, but WINNING.

    The film has great hype, but the trailer was a let down. Florence Pugh is definitely having one hell of a year though.

    I think the only possible acting nominations are Ronan and Pugh. They’re the two singled out in most of the test screening reactions, as well as Pugh having a great/breakout year and Ronan being popular with the Academy. I also think her getting “snubbed” last year for Mary Queen of Scots only helps her, even though she never really stood a chance in my opinion. Streep and Dern have much better chances for The Laundromat and Marriage Story.

    Keeping in mind this is just a trailer, I have a lot of faith in this movie now. It looks like an old school Hollywood crowd-pleaser and an intelligently written character play in one package. It could become a major contender or a minor contender, but it sure looks like a contender.

    Cinematography, costume design, production design, editing, score and acting are stunningly on point. The pacing looks flawless. All this alone should bring it some combination of below the line, acting, and possibly screenplay nods.

    Whether the movie can go the extra mile, though, and seriously contend for Picture and Director, depends on what’s beneath the eye candy, craftspersonship and story-telling skill. Little Women, for all its timelessness, is a product of its time and can (and often has) be treated as such. But it can also offer a smorgasboard of opportunities to explore gender politics and say something meaningful about the time we live in right now.

    So hopefully there’s even more to this adaptation than meets the eye in the trailer. Knowing Gerwig’s sensibilities, I would be surprised if she just settled with telling the story the way it’s been told before.

    Pause when Jo says she scorched her dress and admire the wicked glee in Saoirse Ronan’s eyes. She is glorious.

    The trailer views are pretty low, so where is the supposed hype?

    You guys here on Goldderby are calling it best film ever with your reactions. You guys gave it dedicated slots in every possible category. You all dislike Harriet but are praising this boring costume stuff with a very poor trailer because it’s from a white woman.

    I don't know who to STAN yet

    It’s only been one day and it has over 2.5 million views (1.7 for the official and the rest being mixed with the other main movie trailer channels). It’s doing fine lol.

    I don’t think this film will be nominated for Director, since no female director has ever been nominated twice, but Picture seems like a strong possibility.

    To whom?

    Honey, Harriet’s trailer sucks and sucks even harder compared to this one.
