    What makes me really think Kidman might be able to pull off a win if the movie is released this year is that Sorkin could write the perfect part for her. It’s fun to shit on Sorkin and the Academy hasn’t been quite as fond of him as others (snubbing Steve Jobs, Chicago 7 getting no wins), but actors love his work. Chicago 7 still won SAG Ensemble with little passion in the industry because they eat it up. Coupled along with the fact that they love Kidman, especially in the last few years, and she’s playing Lucille Ball, I would watch out for her winning at SAG, especially since she didn’t win for The Hours. SAG would be a major sign of support for her

    Maybe, but with the exception of Allison Janney’s role on West Wing, Sorkin is fairly notorious for not writing good roles for women. For example, see https://www.indiewire.com/2012/07/aaron-sorkins-female-trouble-the-women-of-the-newsroom-242093/

    I read the article and yeah it’s very concerning. Regardless, that might not be an issue in the eyes of the industry, which of course remains to be seen. With Lucille Ball being the main character and with the family being involved in the project, I have a dash of optimism that it go over fine. I’m not a huge Sorkin fan, though, outside The Social Network and Steve Jobs (not having seen his TV work), so there’s a concern there

    First reviews on Letterbox for Respect are very mixed. Two 2 1/2 star reviews, one 3 1/2 and one 4 1/2. Some quotes:

    “So conventional that they forgot to include some of the conventions; I find it ironic, just a little bit, that the film is more concerned with Aretha the performer than Aretha the person. But it plays the hits, and if you’re with a good crowd, there’s enough to enjoy.”

    “What a shapeless mess of a movie. Some good music in there, but it’s really long. As my friend said, go watch Amazing Grace instead.”

    “Oh yeah Jennifer’s getting the Oscar for this one.”

    Im waiting until the reviews on MC and RT. unless its scored below 40 on MC or 50% on RT JHud should be safe. Keep in mind that handpicked by the real person isnt the only factor. She is the only WoC who is strong enough to score noms if words about Tessa Thompson performace is too quite are true.

    Kidman’s (first) Oscar should have been for To Die For.

    FYC: Better Call Saul and The Good Fight in all categories including Bob Odenkirk, Christine Baranski and Rhea Seehorn.

    I love Letterboxd but it shouldn’t be legitimized as a credible source for critical consensus. It’s basically an extension of Film Twitter & a lot of the reviews are written by trolls/stans.

    If is was illegal for straight white cis males to write weak roles for women, POC and LGBTQ characters, the jails would be far more overcrowded then they already are.

    Too early, I know, but I think if any biopic wins this year here, it’ll be Aretha’s. Luckily for Jennifer, there aren’t any other similar roles to siphon off votes like there was with Andra. Universal was wise to push Respect back.

    Still waiting to see how TEOTF fairs, but that release date isn’t too promising. I do not see Nicole winning a second Oscar for her film (as of yet). The comeback nomination will likely be the reward after being passed over several times recently.

    Why would it? Focus rarely occupy many spots, they usually focus on 1 contender (see 2019 Blackkklansman and 2020 PYW), 2017 remains their best year as they managed 3 BP nominations). Also, Focus and Searchlight aren’t the only studios to get people nominated for Oscars? Gaga and Jhud will be fine.

    MGM also has Soggy Bottom coming later so I think either Respect or Gucci will be clouded early on based on reception. I guess only Netflix been able to get 3+ films on nominations with ease, and they always flop with wins anyway.

    Right now unless Respect is a total juggernaut I believe it will early peak and lost steam by december/january. Still, nothing is too sure.
