    Great compilation, thank you! I needed that as I struggled to even get to five contenders this early. Right now I have Benedetta, Flee, The Hands of God, A Hero and The Worst Person in the World. If Decision to Leave comes out it’s obviously also possible but iirc someone mentioned that it could have been delayed because it’s not showing up at the festivals.

    FYC - Oscars 2022:
    NINE DAYS in all categories, including:
    - Best Picture
    - Best Director
    - Best Original Screenplay
    - Best Actor (Winston Duke)
    - Best Supporting Actress (Zazie Beetz)
    - Best Supporting Actor (Benedict Wong)

    Yes, if I’m not mistaken the director wanted a premiere in Cannes or Venice, but as we’ve seen that didn’t happen, so it’s probably going to be Oscar 2023.

    It would be iconic if FLEE were nominated for Documentary, International Film, Animation and Best Feature.

    I don’t personally believe that France would chose Titane even if it was the last film on earth honestly aha.

    I think that too. On the other hand, I think Iran will go with A HERO.

    I agree. Not only that, but even with Cannes being the biggest film festival in the world they go their own way with Césars. I recall Isabelle Huppert losing for La pianiste (she won best actress at Cannes) and Jean Dujardin the best actor trophy for The Artist (and he won the Oscar).

    Another year without brazillian movies at the Oscars. It sucks.

    I think The Mad Women’s Ball has the biggest shot, considering it will be on Amazon (like Les Miserables), it will probably be more accessible than Annette (which will be in Amazon as well) and Melanie Laurent is a known personality in Hollywood. Of course it has to be good at least

    Even if we discount “Titane”, don’t dismiss any of the other French films in Cannes (And also include Un Certain Regard and Directors Fortnight). Don’t forget Thierry Fremaux has a permanent seat in the French selection committee and thanks to him, we saw some decisions like picking a Turkish speaking movie like “Mustang (Which was a right call) or a polarized biopic of Bonello in “Saint Laurent” (Which was a wrong call).

    The real question is if the committee will keep last year’s rule about the film having a proper US distributor (That’s why we didn’t have Goodbye Morons or Love Affair(s) in the shortlist). If so, better odds to Sciamma and Laurent.

    Another alternatives which can work if Cannes isn’t in play we have two Venice entries: Lost Illusions, by Xavier Gianolli (He was in the shortlist before) and he’s adapting one of the most iconic Balzac’s ouvres with a full French cast: Voisin, Depardieu, De France. The other one is Happening. Wild Bunch had been buzzing so bad this film in the last months and rumor has it Fremaux really want this for Cannes.

    Netflix has 7 Prisioners going to Venice, starring Rodrigo Santoro and Spirit-nominated Christian Malheiros, directed by Spirit winner Alexandro Moretto and produced by Ramin Bahrani and Fernando Meirelles. I hope it’s good and if it is, Abracine chooses it.

    I seriously feel like Worst Person in the World is winning this. Jochim Trier has been around for a while and this is apparently his best film. Giving me Vinterberg vibes from last year
