    I’m guessing Ad Astra is the First Man of this years oscar season: nominations in both sound categories, visual effects, and maybe production design, but nothing else. It’s just so hard for straightforward sci-fi movies to get in nowadays.

    Sounds about right. Even the raves are going on about how unshowy and meditative it is.

    Not so fast. Pitt is vulnerable as an early “frontrunner”.

    At the minute I think Marriage Story is the firm front runner. I had it as my predicted winner prior to the premiere mostly based off of gut feeling but the reviews have definitely cemented my thoughts on it. I’m not sure if it will win but I think it will be the favourite once the festivals are over, as I doubt anything will match its critical acclaim and it’s the only film at all the major festivals.

    Whilst people predicting Endgame to win is crazy, I don’t think predicting a nomination is. I don’t want it to happen, but the Oscars have essentially admitted openly after last year that they need viewers and popular support. If they’re willing to give Bohemian Rhapsody four Oscars and a BP nod, they’ll probably give the highest grossing film ever a Best Picture nod and a few other noms/ wins.

    Ad Astra I don’t think will show up a lot at the Oscars – sound noms, visual effects, maybe a few others will probably be the limit, sadly.

    They are never going to give best picture to Netflix. I already said this last year when people were predicting Roma and I’m saying it again.

    Doesn’t mean it can’t be competitive in acting, screenplay and even director where there’s no preferential ballot. I don’t think anyone is truly expecting it to win Best Picture anyway

    Oh of course. I’m just reacting to the comments saying it’s the current frontrunner. I just don’t see it for that reason.

    Apparently no one remembers that a film with a 69 Metacritic score defeated the most acclaimed film of the year and a film with a 49 MetaCritic score won 4 Oscars including Best Actor. I’m skeptical Netflix wins any of the major 4 categories until it happens.

    Netflix won director already.

    Yeah, Best Picture is definitely cancelled. If a game-changer and filmmaking masterpiece like Roma couldn’t do it, I don’t think these oldheads will change their minds for Marriage Story

    Someone mentioned that it won’t have to face the foreign language/slow paced/extremely highbrow bias and will actually have a strong SAG’s support, unlike Roma that was completely ignored there.

    But it won’t have any political clout either, that’s why I don’t think it’s winning anyway

    Let’s just watch for the 3 acting categories and screenplay. It looks competitive in all of these

    The three Amigos don’t apply. They’d win for anything.

    I’m already bored from the trailer. This will likely flop. Everything looks like a flop this year. Unless it’s as good as like Gravity it isn’t going anywhere major Oscar categories wise.

    I heard Aeronauts is pretty great so i wouldnt pay too much attention to trailer. Reviews tomorrow from Telluride

    Is THE CHAPERONE eligible this year? Looks like it’s first theatrical release was in March 2019. Elizabeth McGovern and Blythe Danner should be listed as contenders … if the film is eligible this year.
