    Why is Everybody’s Talking About Jamie in Original Screenplay? It’s literally a stage-to-screen adaptation.

    Promising Young Woman never had an official release here in the states. It’ll probably fly completely under voters’ radar.

    I think it’s way too early to say this.

    If I’m not mistaken the film did have an April release date pre covid.

    It was supposed to come out in April. It being added to the predictions center now leads me to wonder if it’ll actually be coming out this season. If that’s the case, I’m keeping an eye on it for sure.

    April was way post-COVID in the states. The theaters shut down in March.

    I think there may have been a wide release in some international territories, but here it’s only screening has been Sundance.

    I think Focus may push it to next year, but we’ll see.

    Promising Young Woman is getting nominted in Original Screenplay. Underestimate Emerald Fennell at your own peril.
