    Another Round, The Dig, The Mauritanian and The White Tiger also appeared on the BAFTA longlist so I guess those films have a non-zero chance at getting a Best Picture nomination, by your logic.

    And I’ve always predicted Soul in Screenplay. It’s definitely getting in there.

    John's Best of 2020

    Best Picture: Soul
    Best Direction: The Midnight Sky
    Best Actor: Chadwick Boseman
    Best Actress: Viola Davis
    Best Supporting Actor: Delroy Lindo
    Best Supporting Actress: Amanda Seyfried
    Best Screenplay: Soul

    John's Best of 2021

    Best Picture: Nomadland
    Best Direction: Nomadland
    Best Actor: Lakeith Stanfield
    Best Actress: Frances McDormand
    Best Supporting Actor: Daniel Kaluuya
    Best Supporting Actress: Dominique Fishback
    Best Screenplay: Judas and the Black Messiah

    I was a bit confident about 8 nominees this year but I’m not sure about that anymore.

    We have the five Drama GG nominees:

    Nomadland
    The Trial of the Chicago 7
    Mank
    Promising Young Woman
    The Father

    We have three strong SAG Ensemble nominees that didn’t get the Globe nom:

    Minari
    Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom
    One Might in Miami

    We have Judas and the Black Messiah, which is already showing up in Supporting Actor despite being a late contender. It’s already getting widespread acclaim from critics and Warner is good at campaigning. It’ll debut right when nominations start.

    And we have News of the World, which has a performance with a lot of passion. I still think it could be this year’s Ford v Ferrari. It’s also the only non R film besides Minari and The Father (sorry Soul). Every year there at least three non R nominees.

    9 nominees seem more likely to me.

    Because of the late screenings…

    Yet The Mauritanian got in at the Globes despite being a late screener and The Dig got in at BAFTA despite being a late screener…

    …You’re just stretching at this point because you’re biased for Judas.

    Did anyone from The Dig, besides Ralph, made it into the acting longlists?

    No.

    Although Mulligan was ineligible because she was competing in lead at BAFTA for both The Dig and <i>Promising Young Woman</i>.

    FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")

    Da 5 Bloods is still in the running. Otherwise it would not have gotten those SAG nominations. The Golden Globes shut out reminds me of True Grit. Also the Golden Globes are pretty open about taking briberies so that’s another reason I don’t take it that seriously.

    Mounds is terrific. I think Fiennes gave one of the best performances of the year. What a stacked category. Mulligan, too, would be a worthy nominee for this performance. This film should be in the conversation for BP but here we are.

    watch I May Destroy You

    There’s no explanation for Da 5 Bloods’ Golden Globe shutout other than racism.

    What it reminds me of is Get Out, if that film had been placed in the Drama category.

    The reason I’m not taking the Golden Globes shut out seriously is because they didn’t nominate any black movies for best picture Drama. Also on the TV side they completely ignored I May Destroy You. Some racist garbage was going on and that’s why I can easily ignore them.

    Grow up. Maybe they simply didn’t like the film. What is wrong with people.

    In Drama Actor, yes, in every other category the explanation might be that it’s a messy film that’s neither among the five best drama films, directed nor written movies of the year by several miles. Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom and One Night in Miami were both superior films, if anything, those are omissions that should be blamed on racism.

    Ah yes, they just happened to “not like” all 4 of the films with Black casts and the film with an Asian cast.

    Stop using this excuse for the Globes’ racist garbage. If you want to peddle this shit then go to Parler. I’m so fucking sick and tired of seeing it here.
