    As much as I respect Scorsese, please calm down and wait for the film

    This is Martin Scorsese with De Niro,Pacino,Pesci and Keitel

    It is simple affair to be honest.

    Marty is greatest filmmaker alive,his strongest movies have been about gangster genre.His all time best movie,Goodfellas is about this genre.

    Maybe it won’t win Best Picture and will be considered best movie of this year instantly but after 4-5 years,The Irishman will be remembered as 2019’s Best Movie for sure.

    Marty’s movies age like wine and stand test of time and so will The Irishman.

    I think this is the first time I totally agreed with you. The underestimation of The Irishman feels odd considering the hype for other contenders.

    To be fair, this wouldn’t be the first time a Scorcese film lost Picture: it’s happened to, well, just about all his nominees except The Departed. The fact that it’s Netflix and a late contender (and 3 and a half hours long!) makes me think it won’t pick up any wins, but probably rack up lots of nominations.

    Also, it would be kind of funny if a Scorcese imitation film (Joker) and an actual Scorcese film both got nominated for Picture in the same year, which I think could easily happen.

    Academy-Award winners:

    Parasite: Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay

    Joker: Best Actor - Joaquin Phoenix

    Jojo Rabbit: Best Adapted Screenplay

    Scorsese is above Oscars and with this cast and this genre,it’s going to be pitch perfect.

    Who cares about Oscars and awards when you are getting this treat of artistry to see.

    I think the worst case scenario for The Irishman is that it’s like Gangs of New York and is good but not peak Scorcese quality, and it will “only” get a massive number of nominations at the Oscars.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best Picture: Parasite

    I think worst case is Silence where it was hyped to oblivion and only ended up with one nod

    yeah since this year seems extremely weak I’m ready to add the Irishman to my best picture predictions. Especially since it’s not getting a wide release.

    I don’t think that’s at all possible, The Irishman is way closer to voter’s Scorcese comfort zones thematically and in casting, and in a less competitive year.

    This could be the worst movie Scorcese made and still be nominated for Best Picture.

    Don’t worry, Octavia will probably claim that title before too long. Everybody loves her.

    People are still reeling from overpredicting Silence. They’re just being cautious this time around to pile on the praise prematurely (sweet accidental alliteration). I say fuck it, I hope this movie is amazing and I’m ready to get hurt again.

    It’s high time for the Academy members to jump ahead of the curve and just give “Parasite” the Oscar for Best Picture, after years of criminally snubbing South Korea in the Best Foreign Language Film category despite delivering some of the finest cinema in recent memory (the “Burning” and “Handmaiden” snubs sting the most).

    And to be honest, no other film could top what “Parasite” did, not its thematic complexity, nor its incisive and acerbic writing on socio-economic aggression, nor its Greek chorus ensemble filled with winsome performances (Song Kang Ho trumps most of the Best Actor contenders, including Nose Driver).
