    “Belfast” has two American producers so it is eligible for Best Film, but aside from one or two possible (but not certain) acting nominations, it is not expected to rack up a large number of noms.

    Focus Features may not be selling the eventual next BP Oscar winner with that new trailer, but it certainly is acting as if it is. You can even see the places where “Winner of…/Nominated for…” chyrons could be dropped in.

    The fix is in for Eternals. THR didn’t dare include Erlich’s scathing comments, and it removed negative tweets from a number of mixed tweets, in their Eternals reaction compilation. The message is clear: don’t you dare ruin Zhao’s big blockbuster debut and Feige’s Oscar dream.

    It’s truly hilarious but nothing unexpected because the movie checks a number of boxes that have nothing to do with quality of film-making, but are default reason to be kind. Which is why a number of pundits debated in private but couldn’t tweet that (WoC) lead didn’t have what it takes to carry a movie, that (diverse cast) acting was bad, that (WoC) director helmed a movie where action was nonsensical and pointless, exposition crushingly overwhelming, etc. They have to find a way around those problems and praise it anyhow. It’s mandated. Which is why the key word in reactions was “different” not “best” or “good” or “great”. And lets not forget that, after privately admitting the movie was a mixed bag, a number has publically decided that they liked it.  Nothing spells I have a gun to my head like deciding to like something that you clearly don’t.

    Save your last spot for this.

    Speak for yourself lol.

    The low views for the trailer speak for itself.

    The hedging strategy was painfully obvious.

    This is the most pathetic thing ive read. Dude. Just get a life. You are way to invested on hating Eternals. Idk if thats sad or outright pathetic. Ive seen nothing but praise for all those things. In fact, if a big plus ive seen is that unlike Shang-Chi where it feels unatural and “oh we need a fight scene here. We need another here” the Eternals fight scenes are not only epic and very stylized, they happen naturally. Oh the acting is bad? Literally the characters are the highlights of the movie. If there is something ive seen as consensus, is that the characters are very deep, very balanced and very well acted.The word “different” makes a lotta sense. Great or good or the best is subjective. This wont the typical dumb Marvel movie. Its very different. Eternals doesnt feel like MCU. It could be just a cosmic scifi movie if they werent a Marvel property. Eternals is TOTALLY different movie to even compare. Its very outside the box.

    Stop with your nonsense conspiracy theories. Ive seen mixed reactions and they are still there. We get it. You hate Marvel. But there are channels for that. Im sure there are forums for people like you. Just dont come here everyday to shove your despair and fear of what could happen and see if people agree with you to boost your moral. It wont get nominated. Why so pressed?

    Catriona Balfe and Ciaran Hinds look like they’ll give really good performances and Jamie Dornan is incredibly hot

    This is not Marvel, ok? It has been 2 days since they dropped the trailer. Even though it doesn’t have the same attention as TPOTD or Belfast, the trailer got +1,5M views (twitter and yt), and got people talking on social medias (+15K likes and +4K RT’s on Netflix accts on Twitter). I don’t know what you’re talking about.

    No, they aren’t. They helped push Riz Ahmed last year. The first signs for Youn also came from her nomination. They show what is the independent folks voting for.

    I’m going to set aside your absolutely insane ramblings of a reaction conspiracy and ignore the fact that Dune is likely to get more nominations than Eternals so your rage is unneeded.

    But what the hell is with this racist and misogynistic take? This forum sure isn’t half as high brow as it thinks it is.

    I’m getting weird An Education vibes from The Lost Daughter. It has crossover appeal (is both British and American in sensibilities, appeals to a range of age demographics), has a win competitive central performance and is a screenplay contender that breaks into Best Picture with 10 slots. Just like An Education it isn’t the most ensemble-y movie but it still boasts a strong ensemble with recognisable faces in smaller supporting parts so it could happen at SAG too, especially with their Netflix bias.

    Someone remind me. Do the Gothams use a jury system for winners?
