    Well I’d like to think Clifton Collins Jr can get in, but that HoG steamroller is a major threat – Driver is coming(?)

    Was disappointed CCJ didn’t get a Sunset Circle nom? Did LP get any?

    Collins and Driver both aren’t happening, though Collins at least might contend with critic groups that more than 7 people pay attention to at least.

    Steamrollers happen – we shall see if HoG can barrel its way into many major noms / lots of factors at play – but after BR and Joker can’t be counted out. Passion is a powerful force in awards season.

    I see the strengths and flaws in HoG but only Leto made me want to flee / I can’t even with the idea that that cartoony turn gets nominated. Pacino can stay. 😉

    I guess I don’t see what suddenly makes you feel like HOG is going to be a steamroller? I think it’s borderline-positive for a BP nom, I do think Gaga has a good path in because she’s pretty universally praised, but outside of that I don’t see above-the-line nominations or much of a passion play. “Box office impact” being somewhat antiquated is a factor, too. Hell Dune — which I endlessly advocate for — did great in BO only by current standards, and I think that and “cultural impact” (however one measures that) is less significant to what I consider its strong nomination chances than the fact that it’s gotten so much industry acclaim and praise. That’s the passion I think matters much more in the current climate. Gucci as a film is clearly divided.  I guess my point in this, the actor thread, being that I think there’s no chance its enough for Driver to coattail. Especially with the most subdued performance in the film.

    If the SCA thing spurred your thoughts on that well, I mean, I’ve posted elsewhere my thoughts on that mess.

    Just saw House of Gucci and for me the MVP of the movie is Adam Driver as Mauricio Gucci. This came as a huge surprise to me. He is superb in this role and is the only one who plays his role with subtlety. I was also really surprised that he has an equal role to Lady Gaga as Patrizia (I thought the film was more of an ensemble than it actually is, based on what I have read online about it). IDK if he will be nominated but he deserves to be – it’s a much much better performance than Will Smith as Richard Williams and for me is equal to Benedict Cumberbatch’s excellent work in The Power of the Dog. Of course there are several more frontrunners yet to be seen…

    Just saw Belfast. Jude Hill is coming for a nomination. He’s absolutely BRILLIANT in this film. Right now he’s tied for number 1 for me with Andrew Garfield. WILL SMITH WHO?

    Garfield’s appearance on Colbert has been blowing up on twitter, I honestly think he can make it if Netflix gives him the backing:

    Hopefully this Colbert appearance will increase Garfield’s exposure and his “likeability” factor, and thus will keep him in voters’ minds.

    Also, the quintet of Cumberbatch-Smith-Washington-DiCaprio-Garfield sounds great to me. I have only seen Garfield’s performance so I won’t talk about who’s deserving/undeserving, but I like this lineup because of how diverse it looks in terms of role/acting style; you got a Shakespeare-an tragedy, a biopic, a musical-biopic, a satirical comedy performance, and a Daniel Plainview-esque imposing character.

    I actually would prefer if DiCaprio is replaced with other actors, simply because I’m a bit tired with him playing a man on the edge of a breakdown. But, the way it looks right now to me, DiCaprio is Top-5.

    Let’s say then that you did not enjoy that the movie was so much over the top. You would have preferred a more subtle version of “House of Gucci”, but you didn’t get it.

    Yep. Fair assessment. Bc it’s obvious it struggles with tone maybe it’s not so surprising that Freeman preferred one of those more than the HIGH CAMP one that others are doing. After all everyone keeps saying everybody is almost in a different movie altogether.

    1. Benedict Cumberbatch

    2. Leonardo Dicaprio

    3. Peter Dinklage

    4. Andrew Garfield

    5. Will Smith

    Lol, Smith has a higher chance at getting nominated than your next 3. It’s between him and Benedict.
