    The buzz coming off this reminds me a lot of the crazy buzz after Roma premiered last year, in that it already seems to have been deemed a masterpiece and an Oscar front-runner, which is great.

    If Netflix puts the same campaigning effort and money behind it as they did with Roma, I think this has a very good chance at a win. I know it still has the Netflix factor holding it back, but it has a few things over Roma that will probably play better with voters – huge Actors branch support, not a Foreign Language nominee, more plot based/ plot about people in the industry, etc.

    At the minute I think it will get into all of the above the line categories (and a few below) and probably win a few, but I suppose it’s only the first/ second major player to even release as yet so I’ll stop before I get too excited over it.

    I hate to be that person, but I’ve been saying this film and the actors would get raved for weeks now and a lot of people dismissed it lol. Happy we’re all finally on board that this is happening :).

    I think critics may be exaggerating with this movie but we’ll see… I always thought Scarlett Johansson was a very capable actress… Let’s see how this turns out to be. But I remain skeptical though…

    Currently dropping Dern from my predictions. No reviews are singling her out and she’s definitely not winning for this. She could be nominated, I suppose.

    I wouldn’t necessarily agree with that. It’s unanimous that all the performances are stellar in the movie, so it makes sense Driver and Johannson would be singled out more as they’re the leads. Dern seems to have one scene-stealing monologue which could be enough for her. She received a standing ovation after her monologue during the press screening.

    In reference to the monologue – “Baumbach added, “To know these actors were playing the parts, it really did push me.” There is a particular monologue delivered by Laura Dern as Nicole’s attorney that the actress called “a delicious Christmas gift.” Baumbach said the writing was easier doing it specifically for Dern who also added a key line.”

    The Playlist– “a phenomenal Laura Dern”

    Time Out– “They make the movie unmissable: Laura Dern’s high-powered Nora, a salve to Nicole’s confidence, sugars up her client with honey-laced tea and a patient ear, but eventually disgorges the film’s fiercest bits of scorched-earth savagery.”

    Indie Wire– “Nora (a mesmerizing Laura Dern, wearing a smile that could kill). Nora’s the sort of no-nonsense Hollywood veteran whose ability to assess Nicole’s situation requires her to oscillate from benevolent therapist to ruthless interrogator. Nicole’s first session is marked by a freewheeling monologue that stretches on for several minutes, as the actress chronicles the evolution of her attraction to Charlie and its eventual dissolution; there’s enough detail to fill an entire movie of its own, and by the end of the scene, you feel like you’ve seen it without a single flashback.”

    Time– “Laura Dern, in a performance as cleanly chiseled as her collarbones”

    The Hollywood Reporter– “Deciding to make their separation official, Nicole consults high-powered divorce lawyer Nora Fanshaw (played to savage perfection by Laura Dern)”

    Lol Jesus, stop. It literally has a 97 on MC with 9 reviews. People really have to put some bias or pride aside and just face what’s right in front of them. Critics have no reason to somehow inflate the score for this movie.

    I don’t count the single phrase descriptions like the ones you quoted from Time and The Hollywood Reporter as “singling out”, because the reviews did that for Alan Alda and Ray Liotta and no one thinks they’re winning.

    I would have liked to see at least a sentence dedicated to Laura Dern’s performance/role in the movie in most reviews to justify predicting a win. And it’s not like reviews for other movies don’t do that for supporting players.

    To be fair, I thought the monologue described in the IndieWire review was Johannson’s but after rereading I know that there is at least one review that singles out Dern.

    Why is Scarjo losing the Oscar?

    1. She is not winning the GG or any precursors.
    2. She isn’t considered as hot ingenue.
    3. I can’t picture her winning SAG.
    4. She’s not considered overdue excepted by Honey her stan.
    5. Netflix can only buy her a nomination.
    6. She looks thirsty for the nod.
    7. The Academy disrespects her.
    8. The movie won’t resonate with audiences.
    9. Driver outacts her.
    10. Zellweger is winning.

    Zellweger winning would be equal to Sean Penn winning again in 2008?

    You might have some good points here with the lack of an overdue narrative, Academy disrespect, no SAG… but of all the options to put as a more likely win, you pick Zellweger??? I can’t buy that, sorry.
