    Trailer for the Sundance US Dramatic Audience & Dramatic Grand Jury Award winner is here. I don’t see many people predicting it for the Oscars. It seems indie but I think it could also be a warm crowdpleaser while appealing to critics.

    Some more info

    It’s sitting at 88% in Metacritic and 100% on RT with average score 9+.

    Distributor is A24, and this is their big push this calendar year.

    This is Director Lee Isaac Chung’s first high-profile film after his debut Munyurangabo, which Roger Ebert deemed it a masterpiece. https://www.rogerebert.com/reviews/munyurangabo-2009

    Now that I look at it, Sundance top prize winners do little impact on Oscars. Most recent winners that made a splash were Whiplash (2014) and Precious (2009).

    I think that Minari is the only film that A24 will campaign hard this year (there’s On The Rocks, but I can’t see it as a great contender while they have an award winner film) . Looking at the reviews, I think it’s probable that we’re going to see this nominated for the Oscar. The screenplay is the most likely to be nominated while I can see it as a Best Picture contender as we all know that the Academy seems to be more open to diversity.

    As deserving as he may be for this film, I can’t help but think he should be nominated for this performance as a way to make up for his snub for Burning.

    Wow. What a beautifully poignant film.

    It definitely deserves a SAG ensemble nomination.

    Steven Yeun, Han Ye-ri, & Youn Yuh-jung are all worthy of recognition. Also, Best Picture, Director, Original Screenplay, & Cinematography.

    Minari is probably my favorite film of 2020 so far.

    Mannnnn this is easily my favorite film of 2020 so far. Such a beautiful gut wrenching story. In terms of Oscar chances, I really want this film to make it in Bp and I can see it happening unless it turns out to be a ‘The Farewell’ 2.0. Yeun was terrific, but I don’t see him happening in lead. I think he would have a way better shot in supporting. OMG Yuh-Jung Youn (the grandma) on the other hand DESERVES a best supporting actress nom for sure, she was my standout. Everybody else in this film was just so terrific. I know this film will stay in my top 3 throughout the end of the year and I won’t be surprised if it stays number 1 for me.
