    Rich and poor. The same old story, showing the sad reality – how privileged rich people are; how they can get away with anything (sometimes at the expense of the poor). Adarsh Gourav carries the entire film on his shoulders. He was really good.
    About Priyanka’s performance – nothing special, inspiring or memorable. I don’t think she will get any nominations, apart from CC.
    Briefly, the film itself wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great, as well.

    ⭐Best Actress - Carey Mulligan, Rosamund Pike

    ⭐Best Supporting Actress - Youn Yuh-Jung

    I don’t think we should rule out Jodie Foster. She’s been campaigning a lot and her film has a baity and timely subject matter. I understand why some are cautious because of the reviews but (unlike some other contenders with yellow and in some cases red scores on Metacritic that people have said are unaffected by reviews) this appears to be a love-hate situation à la Vice and Jojo Rabbit rather than “this film is bad”. I don’t think The Mauritanian will be as big as either Vice or Jojo Rabbit as a contender nor am I saying it will get in because of this but it definitely has passion too. It got in over more widely seen, more acclaimed and generally bigger categories at the London Film Critics Circle.

    I wouldn’t call these the best comparisons. Jojo Rabbit is a film about Nazi Germany and Vice a film about a questionable politician and the Academy hardly passes on these type of films. Not only that, but on the opposite side they tend to reject dramas about about lawyers trying to get people out of prison.

    Jodie has been campaigning more than normal. That’s the only reason I think she can get it in, and I still think that to be a pretty small chance.

    It was alright. I enjoyed it.

    SPOILER (KINDA)

    Given the main character’s knack for spinning a tale, I thought for sure he was not as the opening scene suggests.

    Agree with everything Marrowbone said but also, I wasn’t that big of a fan of that ending. But I’m glad this movie reminded me of my love for Mundian to Bach Ke.

    Could this be India’s entry for next year? Or is the dialogue mostly in English? It felt like Hindi was spoken just as much as English.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    And admittedly I said they aren’t the best comparisons:

    My point is more that this film seems to have love-hate passion (like those films did but not to the same extent) and that it’s not got a yellow MC score because it’s panned or universally considered average.

    I saw it last week, she absolutely deserves a nod. Great performance in a great film. SAG will love it for sure and I think Oscar voters will too…

    On a side note, people really need to not take critic’s word for gospel when it comes to nominations The guilds often go their own ways and this year they will likely be quite different…. And also, Twitter means nothing to Guild voters. I have no idea why people put some much stock in knee-jerk reactions on social media whether positive or negative. The people who actually vote for awards, vote on the movies they watch and like, not on some random buzzmeter or critic’s words.

    If Glenn somehow gets in, she’s taking it all the way tbh, there will be A LOT of hype for her, panned film or not

    That’s too bad. Aravind Adiga’s novel was riveting.

    Better to base predictions off of some intel than none.

    We put stock in them because of correlation, not causation.

    Yes, I prefer the book. Not surprisingly though. We all know that usually books are much better than their film adaptations.
