    Good god why have some instead of moving on from derailing the thread by dragging films from last year’s race gone on now to comparing Promising Young Woman and I May Destroy You. Regardless of the fact that neither are relevant to next year’s Oscar race, it’s such a stupid comparison. It’s like saying The Count of Monte Cristo and The Irishman are similar films because they both have a violent scene in their films.

    And no I’m not some I May Destroy You hater (it’s my favourite show of 2020) or some “deluded Promising Young Woman fanatic”. But the Gold Derby trolls can feel free to call me such. I need strong comic relief right now.

    This you?

    Not all of you theorising over which of Lupita, Regina and Viola will become the second black best actress winner when my girl Michaela will beat (or shall I say destroy) them all 😉

    Yikes! Not you pitting WOC against each other.

    Would credible website, worldofreel.com, lie? The Hollywood Reporter & Variety could never!

    I think this post was intended to me 🙂 you made it clear you don’t believe the rumours

    Dunno if you meant me wolfali but I think I brought up IMDY, only to caveat that my view of PYW was most definitely colored by the fact that I watched it immediately after, and therefore I was probably much harsher than need be. They don’t deserve to be compared, I just…happened to. That may have snowballed into a discussion I don’t see (or care to lol)

    To compare Promising Young Woman and I May Destroy You would be like comparing Saving Private Ryan and The Thin Red Line. They deal with similar themes and characters, but their approach to said themes and characters is wildly different from one another. Fennell is taking a different approach than Coel in the same way that Spielberg took a different approach than Malick. That’s not hard to understand

    Promising Young Woman is a film about a woman who is seeking revenge after her friend was raped. <i>I May Destroy You</i> is a television show following the psychological toll someone faces after being a victim of rape. They may deal with a similar subject matter but at the end of the day they’re two very different projects.

    Anyway this isn’t the place to be discussing this. I apologise if I brought anything up.

    Can we please stop with the Mulligan stuff now? It’s not relevant to the thread and it’s just feeding into the weirdly hostile environment that the Actress threads always seem to have.

    I have never really been impressed by Kristen Stewart up until now (not a hater, I just think she’s ok in her arthouse films) but with these early raves and with Larrain (I LOVED Jackie) I am excited to see her in Spencer.

    I do feel slightly worried that Spencer is a little too inaccessible and be snubbed, ala Adam Sandler for Uncut Gems, but Stewart has the benefit of playing Princess Diana which I feel could help her. Either way, I’m sensing this being the most raved performance of her career.

    Adam Sandler wasnt snubbed cause the film is “inaccessible” (it isnt). Didnt you see how horribly A24 did that year with The Farewell and The Lighthouse also flopping across the board? It was their fault on focusing screeners to Indie Spirit lol

    Similar to you comparing PYW to Gone Girl and A Woman Under The Influence just yesterday

    If A24 is horrible at campaigning, just imagine how bad NEON will be with Spencer. Their track record, as of late, hasn’t been the best. Ammonite was a flop.

    This changes every year, it depends on strategy. A24 didnt know what film to focus in 2019 and ended up flopping with all of them. However last year they did a great job with Minari and it payed off (at the expense of films like First Cow being ignored tho).

    NEON spent every cent they had on Parasite (which made Clemency forgotten). Then last year they had a visibily weaker pack and it didnt work.

    Sony Pictures also known as a flop for years. But last year they focused on sending The Father screeners to the industry awards and skipping critics. Also worked since they ended with 2 wins at Oscars and BAFTAs.

    I agree, the surprise BAFTA nom was a delight
