    Sorkin is not getting a directing nomination for this. The directing branch is full of snobs and I’m sure they won’t give him a nomination for something this average.

    It’s not like they haven’t nominated much worse.

    Also not you removing your Jeremy Strong avatar immediately after GD starts trashing his acting 💀

    rubbish

    I don’t think they really nominated anything that is much worst than this last decade. Maybe Adam McKay for Vice, but at Vice tried to do something interesting with the biopic formula. Chicago is as pedestrian as it gets.

    EDIT: Also Morten Tyldum, God what a forgettable nomination. But Tyldum had the black magic of W*******n..

    Todd Philips… Joker’s direction was almost tragically average, unoriginal, completely overshadowed by every other element of the movie. Russel, Reitman were also pretty undeserving in my humble opinion.

    I gotta be honest here; I actually liked the Imitation Game. I watched it when I was 13 and I had a big crush on Matthew Goode, Keira Knightley, and Cumberbatch.

    Surprisingly, the directors tend to make better choices than the rest, for example leaving Peter Farrelly out and including Pawlikowski (and Lanthimos). Like some had said in other threads, the directing in this is just basic, not awful but there’s nothing memorable about it.

    Regarding Jeremy, it was that or post his Chicago 7 performance on the Razzie thread… I also thought it was a good moment to start the Luca Martinelli payola since I think he’s eligible for the Oscar this year. We will be back with a Jeremy avatar when Succession returns.

    Hardly a surprise considering how appalling the trailer looked but Rebecca starts off at 46 on Metacritic and 55% on Rotten Tomatoes.

    However the technicals are getting raves so we should watch out for those popping up at the Oscars in somewhere like Costume Design and Kristin Scott Thomas has been receiving raves as well (which is hardly a surprise considering it’s Kristin Scott Thomas) so we should watch out for her potentially popping up at BAFTA and SAG like Emily Blunt did for The Girl on the Train.

    FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", AMANDA SEYFRIED FOR "MANK", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).

    I didn’t have high hopes for this remake. I’ll stick with the Hitchcock classic.

    Production design perhaps, if they’ve done Manderley justice. But the styling all looked anachronistic from the trailer. There’s no VFX. I doubt it’s going to get hairstyling/makeup nominations for very basic styles on like 2 female characters.

    I also thought it was a good moment to start the Luca Martinelli payola since I think he’s eligible for the Oscar this year.

    I had wondered about Marinelli getting a Marcello Mastroianni-type nomination, but for that Martin Eden would need Sony Pictures Classics, not Kino Lorber.

    I don’t understand the confidence in News of the World. Maybe I’ll wait for the critics reviews.

    Greengrass is an industry fave

    Greengrass made Captain Phillips, which got 6 nominations including Best Picture, United 94 which got 2 nominations including Best Director, and The Bourne Supremacy which got 3 wins. He’s really well liked by the Academy and in a year that’s sparse on content News of the World feels like a film that could do really well in the technicals. I’m predicting a 3rd win for Mark Bridges in Costume Design.

    Fuck the Grammys
