    Ford vs. Ferrari will go the way of First Man.

    I believe it is worth noting that I highly doubt the academy won’t nominate a female directer this year. In the year of Little Women, ABDITN, and even films like The Farewell, Harriet, Clemency, Booksmart, and Hustlers that is one bad narrative. Last year’s backlash was bad enough, and the only main female-directed contender was Can You Ever Forgive Me, (which definitely would not deserve the nomination, but alas the backlash was still there.) That’s one of the main reasons I’m skeptical to predict  Joon-ho. Currently he has replaced Gerwig in the prediction center.

    This Best Picture lineup is going to be great! I have to admit that OUATIH does look dreadfully boring through: Thatcher may be right about that one.

    I agree that BP looks very fun this year, I think the negativity is amplified by a few users, but there’s also some really boring categories this year. Namely Actress, Supporting Actress, and both screenplays, which have so few likely contenders it makes discourse derivative.

    This seems like a trashy year but also hilarious to watch from the sidelines. The Oscars and their voters are having such an identity crisis about what should be rewarded in cinema.

    Once the Globe kicks in, the races are over. It’s the Hollywood Foreign Press Assossiation who decides the race, and as far as I can tell, they are absolutely fine with surprises

    I agree that it would be terrible if no female directors were nominated this year, especially since two are directing Picture contenders, but it will probably happen. Tarentino and Scorcese are locks based on their legacy alone, Baumbach’s film is one of this year’s biggest contenders, and Joon Ho may be the frontrunner to win it all, since the director branch has been very biased towards POC recently. The only one who’s vunurable is Mendes, and I have a good feeling that 1917 will be this year’s Dunkirk.

    Experts on GD and many other sites still have Once Upon A Time In Hollywood as #1.

    It has grossed well over $300 millions,possibly will finish near or over $400 millions depending on China release.

    It’s a “Hollywood Hand-Job” which stuff is always loved by Academy.

    Made by one of biggest and most influential filmmaker today Quentin Tarantino and most likely his second last movie.Cast is Super-Duper big and delivered a brilliant ensemble performance.

    It maybe not best movie of the year but can it just win Best Picture.It is ticking all the boxes so far.

    It also helped that the festival season was just kind of a big flop this season. A few good not great films, a divisive audience winner, and some flat out bombs. Only real breakout was Marriage Story which is a netflix movie that Academy seems to hate.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Even if Jojo Rabbit won TIFF, I still don’t have it in my predictions considering its lukewarm reception. I know about Vice and Bohemian Rhapsody, but those have to be flukes and I don’t think like the Academy.</p>

    I always anticipate movies that ONLY get in for Best Screenplay. I’m thinking Knives Out will be the next one.

    I agree. That film seems like a strong contender for Original, especially since that category’s pretty weak this year.

    Jojo Rabbit’s response wasn’t exactly lukewarm. If it was lukewarm it wouldn’t have won at TIFF. It’s a divisive film that has many people who clearly feel very passionate about it, just like Vice and Bohemian Rhapsody. That passion will help it in the same way it helped those two.

    But a movie should get in based on execution, not just passion.

    Nominations are based on passion. That’s why people get nominated for Oscars. Because people see their work and feel passionately about it.
