    I think with the COVID situation, the Netflix situation that seemed to be easing in the Academy heated up again with the cinema shutdowns and the studio delays. I can see a Spielberg type doing the equivalent to what happened with Roma and saying some shit like “supporting Netflix is like supporting the death of cinema”, and with the circumstances being more dire voters might buy it even more.

    God, it’ll probably be an angry Christopher Nolan won’t it?

    Best Picture: Wolfwalkers

    I actually think they will spread picture and director. I see Fincher getting director and Nomadland getting picture as the more probable of that option.

    Exactly. This is the year to support theaters more than ever, and this is why Netflix is not winning.

    And ignore the narrative of the first woman of color (and second overall) to win Director?

    If Nomadland wins Picture, I think Zhao will win Director as well. You should also remember that the Academy was never a big fan of Fincher.

    That’s what I’ve been saying for a while now. Nomadland is right there as a theatrical alternative (and it will release in theaters, regardless of what happens, because the film was made on a microbudget and needs like $100 to break even), and the powerful anti-Netflix contingent in the Academy will throw all their support behind it.

    Zhao wins Director. There may be a BP/BD split with Chicago 7 cause AMPAS will award something they perceive to be timely politically in Picture. But Director goes to Zhao. They will be very cautious not to award a white male director and she has legit reviews, wouldn’t be a pander win. Also, many think she should have been at least nominated for her previous movie. So no fluke that one.

    I still feel like the opposite (Fincher wins Director and Zhao wins Picture) is far more likely, especially after seeing the Mank reviews.
