    Lucy in the Sky currently has a 35 on Metacritic, so if you still have it in your predictions, I would suggest swapping it out. Too bad, I thought it had some potential.

    I think Avengers: Endgame, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, and Parasite seem solid as contenders. I’m holding out on 1917 till its release.

    Endgame for Cinematography? That’s not gonna happen. Flat out, probably not even a top 15 contender for that category. The reason being probably, the Cinematography branch voters aren’t gonna go for Marvel Studio’s brand of cinematography. Not even Rachel Morrison’s Panther camera work was honored, even at the guild-awards level.

    Time for the Avenger stans to understand that Avengers Endgame is just a visual effects contender

    Avengers: Endgame will be paraded around in For Your Consideration by Disney because they’d want their crown jewel of Marvel to get Oscars, but that won’t happen* in any way other than technical awards.

    *unless literally every unseen Oscars contender isn’t happening, which is absurdly unlikely.

    Black Panther broke the mold for the Score category (it was the first Marvel score to be nominated), but that was at least unique. I don’t see how Endgame’s score stands out compared to most other Marvel scores and I would be surprised at a nomination.

    I agree with that analysis. Endgame will break out a little more than previous non-Black Panther marvel films did, due to it’s massive box office, high critical acclaim, and an aggressive campaign from Disney, but any nominations other then those 4 seem unlikely to me. It will probably hit the same sweet spot that Last Jedi did after Force Awakens overperformed with a film editing nom.

    Wow, Thatcher’s unique presence will be missed from me. Yes she could be rude, but I’d be lying if I said she wasn’t super entertaining.

    I guess since y’all insist on talking about Avengers every 3 pages, I will offer the reasoning why I put it back in. To begin, our current odds in the PC are: OUATIH, Irishman, MS, Jojo, 1917, LW, FvF, Parasite, ABDITN and Joker.

    Currently, Avengers is sitting at number 21, but there are some non-factors ahead of it, The Report, The Laundromat, A Hidden Life, Ad Astra, Waves to name a few. The only likely movies above it are The Farewell, The Two Popes, Bombshell, and Pain and Glory (all of which should not be dismissed.)

    Of the 10 supposed frontrunners, Little Women, Irishman, and/or 1917 COULD flop, Jojo Rabbit and Joker have very mixed reactions, and in my personal opinion FvF and ABDITN look incredibly generic, and I’m still not convinced on Parasite in picture. But even if you remove my personal opinion, that still leaves only 5 “locks.”

    So as there are so few locks, It’s not out of the question now like it was right after Venice and Tiff. Then, there is the ABC factor, Disney’s presumable massive campaign (worth noting Disney may put more behind Endgame than either FvF or Jojo,) the ratings and press this “surprise” would generate… there seems to be a lot of reasons to throw the most successful movie of all time at least a nomination.

    Honest to God,when you witness and see all the politics,money campaigning and bad mouthing and negative whispering that goes into Oscar season,you start to dislike these awards.

    Brad Pitt is right to not campaign as it literally puts a dent into your art.

    This award system is not right and not based on merit.I just found out that Netflix spent $25 millions on ROMA’s award campaign not that it was anything less than a masterpiece but DAMN.

    Netflix massive campaign for Roma got talked about a lot in here. They really did A LOT

    Politics, money and lobbying are nothing new in Hollywood and their awards have never been based on “merit” (as subjective as it is). It has always been about asskissing, smearing and intense campaigning (ie Joan Crawford launching that infamous anti Bette Davis smear campaign, Sally Kirkland basically prostituting herself, Harvey Weinstein lobbying hard to get those 7 Oscars to Shakespeare in Love etc etc)

    And to think that there’s so much dirt we don’t know about

    I admit, I love laughing at the manipulative bullshit. The Academy has never been a meritocracy, it’s more like The Favourite where the question is who can get in the right relationships and collapse their competition quick enough. I don’t follow the Oscars race because the Academy makes the right decisions – they very rarely do. I follow the Oscars race because it is hilarious bullshit.
