I have the same feeling. I’ve been doubtful of that movie’s crafts wins potential since nominations. Seems like it’ll get Makeup, but they may just say “oooh those pretty dresses in Emma” cause you know non-costume designers think that way. Even three seems like a stretch tbh, if The Great Gatsby and Blade Runner 2049 couldn’t win more than two, then why would Ma Rainey’s?
The Great Gatsby didn’t even have any other nominations so of course it didn’t win more than two. Blade Runner 2049 was never considered a frontrunner in its other three nominated categories: Dunkirk and The Shape of Water were always fairly assured to win there.April 7, 2021 at 11:53 am #1204184250

I’m still weary about it. I have a hard time picturing it and I can’t tell you why
Oscar winners Emerald Fennell Daniel Kaluuya and Youn Yuh-jung

So do I to be fair. Three Oscars for Ma Rainey seems plausible, four feels like a stretch considering how much it underperformed compared to the guilds.April 7, 2021 at 9:35 pm #1204185312
Tenet just lost VFX Society Awards to The Midnight Sky.
Welcome to Chechnya might be the worst case of “Goldderby thing” in years. It just lost Supporting Effects to Mank at VFX Society Awards.
Never understand the Welcome to Chechnya hype on film Twitter lol. Yeah the subject is serious and the use of VFX is meaningful, but these are not humanitarian awards. The quality looks just okay. Mank obviously got better VFX than it.
It won’t win DGA documentary this week either.

The work of Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross in Soul is wonderful but it breaks my heart that the magnificent score of Minari hasn’t won pretty much anything this season.April 9, 2021 at 2:41 pm #1204188931
There is absolutely no way Mank loses Production Design. Doesn’t matter how many people aren’t fans of the movie, it has swept literally almost every single production design award with both critics and industry. It’s up with Zhao in Director and Boseman in Actor as the top 3 biggest locks of the evening
Kaluuya is way bigger lock than BosemanApril 9, 2021 at 2:46 pm #1204188941
What was more impressive in your opinion: the reverse exploding building in Tenet or the blood ballet in The Midnight Sky?April 9, 2021 at 2:48 pm #1204188943

The reverse explosion of the building in Tenet literally blew my mind. Midnight Sky couldn’t compare unless it was a Miley song.

Predictions for Art Directors Guild tomorrow:
Period Film: Mank
Fantasy Film: Tenet, but I wouldn’t discount Birds of Prey winning here
Contemporary Film: This is a tough one. I picked Promising Young Woman, but Da 5 Bloods makes more sense. If Birds of Prey were in this category like in Costume Design guild, I’d 100% bet on Birds of Prey.April 10, 2021 at 4:34 pm #1204190804
Period Film: Mank, because duh.
Contemporary Film: I think Promising Young Woman will be carried by the strength of the film across the guilds.
Fantasy Film: After it won VES I went with The Midnight Sky. Just a hunch that Clooney’s film might be stronger at the guilds than Tenet, but not with AMPAS and BAFTA.April 10, 2021 at 4:47 pm #1204190838
Is anyone else having trouble seeing the ADG predictions ? Mine are just gone from the predictions center.April 10, 2021 at 5:02 pm #1204190882
We had to shut down ADG last night since they started informing people within the industry of the results. That doesn’t happen other years but it happening a lot this year since the ceremonies are virtual.April 10, 2021 at 5:29 pm #1204190951
Da 5 Bloods wins ADG for Contemporary Feature Film!April 10, 2021 at 5:33 pm #1204190963
Mank wins Period Feature Film ADG
Soul wins Animated FeatureApril 10, 2021 at 5:34 pm #1204190965
I had a feeling Da 5 Bloods would win. Wynn Thomas is a previous winner and this would be a place to recognize the movie.
I’m now even more sure in predicting Birds of Prey to prevail over PYW in the Costume Designers guild
