    I know this is the wrong thread but since the Television Academy is huge,I thought of extending the SAG TV Voting Polls to this thread too. This one is for Limited/Anthology Actress (choose one).

    I’ll make one for “Best Ensemble Motion Picture SAG” also shortly and post here.

    Number of pages on here so far for the main contenders, apropos of nothing:

    Last Duel 27

    TPOTD 26

    Dune 12

    Macbeth 7

    Nightmare Alley 5

    Licorice Pizza 5

    King Richard 3

    Belfast 1

    And the winner is…

    House of Gucci 73

    Fox mishandled The Last Duel.

    They clearly didn’t have any faith or confidence about it despite the increasing critical acclaim given by the second wave of reviews in the USA which were worlds apart from the mediocre Venice debut.
    Fox clearly couldn’t care less about marketing it well.

    It’s the studio’s fault.

    Fascinating to see Branagh trying to distance Belfast from Roma.

    He’s saying as an Arthouse director & AMPAS & BAFTA he did not see the film that was runner up & winner respectively for the win that year, the film that was on of the most critically acclaimed film that year.

    Is he desperate that the “White Roma”  tag not stick to Belfast lest it harms the films chances?

    Is he worried about being accused of copying from the film?

    Could he really not have seen it?

    At a certain point I’ve been saying, and still believe, that at SOME point surely we’ll stop holding box office shortcomings against the contenders this year once they all basically underwhelm. That core audience is in no rush to go back to theaters, and it’s not like Halloween Kills is a likelier Oscar contender for exceeding expectations.

    That being said, The Last Duel’s numbers suggest it probably wouldn’t have been profitable even in the best of times. The Ridley Scott period epic has been out of fashion for the better part of 20 years now.

    Kenneth Branagh shares with the audience during his Q&A for #Belfast: “I haven’t seen Roma,” referring to the comparisons of his personal film and Alfonso Cuarón’s personal portrait.

    I just know this isn’t true since he is an Academy member. Branagh is practically asking for a Best Director snub.

    What a shitty thing to say about a colleague’s work lol. This guy is unberable.

    Maybe it’s true.
    Just because you’re an Academy member, it doesn’t mean that you are a cinephile, a film buff, or that you watch everything that will come out in that year.

    Is he for real? So he either genuinely didn’t see it, exposing himself as the worst kind of Academy member; or he did see it, copied it and made it worse, then lied about it?

    For Your Consideration:

    Carrie Coon, ‘The Gilded Age’ (no I haven’t seen it, but we have no choice but to stan anyway)

    He’s lying. He doesn’t want to discuss the similarities and differences between Cuaron’s masterpiece and his movie, just in case people start looking at them more closely. By the way, I intend to rewatch “Roma” after I watch “Belfast”. Anyone else has had the same thought?

    Branagh is apart of the international branch of the Academy and Roma won Best Film at BAFTA. How could he not have seen it?

    I hate to be overly cynical but I strongly suspect that the vast majority of AMPAS voters don’t watch all of the Best Picture nominees in their entirely before voting. It’s outrageous to vote without watching all BP nominees, especially for a Director, but I certainly don’t think he’s unusual.

    Just like Sam Mendes didn’t see Birdman before making 1917.
