    I’m not totally convinced of Macbeth still. I have a hard time not seeing it as inaccessible and arthouse. Am I missing something

    It’s got acclaim (I think it will maintain an 85+ on Metacritic from here on out) and it has DENZEL and FRANCES MCDORMAND. These are some of the most beloved figures in the industry today and the fact that the film has acclaim seems that it’ll probably be like Mank in the sense that it has a lot of respect from people in the industry without major passion (since it seems a little left of wide accessibility, though I may be wrong). Denzel is locked for a nom too, I think.

    Yeah, I think especially in a field of 10 it should be fairly secure.

    You guys need to take out Licorice Pizza. The film looks like a lot of fun but in no way is it a best picture player.

    I heard people saying it’s as accessible as this type of a movie can be.

    I feel like there’s some really super duper locked nods (like Denzel in particular) and I really REALLY want to watch this, and holy damn I can’t believe I’m making this argument that I often hate: but damn this would be such an outré pick for the Academy wouldn’t it?

    All the reviews spend so much time picking the richness of the material—it’s reminiscent of Bergman, The Man Who Wasn’t There, Caligari, Kurosawa, Dreyer, German expressionist cinema, “Escher-like weirdness”—that I feel like the feat is making a film that is pitched somewhere between a film and a stage adaptation. It sounds a little…like Dogville? Except perhaps a little colder? I feel like the most emotional part of this is realizing the toll on Macbeth/Denzel?

    I also feel like the actor getting the MOST acclaim is Kathryn Hunter (the witches). She would be a VERY modern choice for today’s Academy that knows it criminally snubbed Andy Serkis. No? Kathryn Hunter seems like a REALLY EXCITING nomination!!!

    Maybe? Not inaccessible, just a little…cold perhaps. There’s pathos in Denzel’s Macbeth and the witches are apparently AWESOME, and it’s a thriller. I am just as ambivalent as you, but again—I dunno if I should condescend by calling it too arthouse-y. I think the better thing is: it shares similarities to the Coen Bros films that didn’t get into the Oscars… except maybe A Serious Man.

    I don’t see Macbeth as a threat for Picture but Coen may be very competitive for Director.

    I keep thinking the same thing. I’m just waiting on the reviews to confirm it before I drop it.

    I think The Tragedy of Macbeth will get a BP nominee spot.

    Nightmare Alley instead didn’t convince me from the teaser. Not that it can’t be good, but maybe it’s more like Crimson Peak, which means something not necessarily Oscar worthy according to voters.

    I don’t understand all the confidence in House of Gucci I’m seeing.

    and i don’t understand the “a hero” situation

    Macbeth is down to 89. Really curious at what score it will eventually settle.

    I really don’t get why people are still hanging on to West Side Story. Just put it to rest.
