    Two Popes getting slept on. 88 MC.

    Impressive. I can see it being a big crowd-pleaser. Netflix seems like it will have a lot on its plate with Marriage Story and The Irishman but they could also campaign this, and it’s scheduled for a theatrical release, so I can see it getting into Picture, Actor, Supp. Actor, Screenplay and some below the line categories.

    Talking of Screenplay, doesn’t McCarten’s script belong in Adapted?

    Oddly this doesn’t seem to be listed anywhere in the film credits; perhaps it was written as a screenplay first? I’m anticipating another contentious issue with categorisation, like when Whiplash and Moonlight were considered adapted at the Oscars but original everywhere else. If The Two Popes does end up in Adapted it could well win considering how anaemic that category is looking at the moment.

    For sure and Netflix can handle multiple campaigns.

    Yeah I was hestiant on that, GD has it in Original at the minute but Wikipedia and some other places mention that it’s been adapted. I didn’t want to be specific but I agree if it runs Adapted it could win and I imagine it’ll certainly be nominated.

    I have The Irishman, Little Women, ABDITN, Joker and Dark Waters getting in for now but I’m only really convinced by the first two, and The Two Popes is getting enough praise for its script to make me think it could beat them all.

    Darlings, we have another contender with Two Popes. This is getting interesting. It’s the first time I’m dying to watch this season’s movies.

    I have serious reservations predicting 3 Netflix films in picture. There is still prominent anti-streaming sentiment in the industry, and I fail to see this going from nominating one (Cuaron directed) film to 3 in one year.  If The Irishman ends up underperforming, maybe Netflix will push this 0ne harder.

    Scorese never gives shit movie.

    The Irishman will be a box office bomb.

    It maybe not big at awards next season but it sure as hell will be a Scorsese classic.

    It’s De Niro,Pacino,Pesci and Keitel under Scorsese guys,Come on.

    Part of Netflix’s success will depend on how the rest of the competition shapes up. If more films turn into Jojo Rabbit (only going off of social media reactions), then Netflix’s chances increase. Barring anything crazy I see them with at least two best picture nominees.

    There was a play written by McCarten that premiered earlier this year:
    https://www.whatsonstage.com/northampton-theatre/reviews/the-pope-royal-and-derngate-anton-lesser_49258.html
    (Moonlight was also based on a play script that never got played anywhere)

    Anyway, I’m happy the film is being so well received and judging by the critics, despite being a “crowd-pleaser” type, it won’t be hollow like this year’s biggest winners at the Oscars.

    This movie has a very interesting topic to me that never got materialized in film. Besides Hopkins and Pryce are great (the latter in The Wife was better than half of the Supporting Actor lineup this year) and Fernando Meirelles is a beast, he never gets wrong.

    Hope there’s no Netflix bias on this one
