    I assume Netflix has a lot more money for its campaign than Focus. I assume Netflix really really wants their first BP win.

    And I might add. The Academy is not you either lol.

    But you present your views as though they are more valid than others. We have different opinions and that’s fair and we are rooting for different films.

    From chief editor Tim Gray
    Variety: How a Year of Upheaval Will Affect the Oscar Race

    It’s fun to make awards predictions in October, which is kinda/sorta the start of Oscar season.

    But here’s some perspective: In October 2018, audiences greeted Bradley Cooper’s “A Star Is Born” so rapturously that many were predicting an Oscar sweep. It ended up with one win (original song), out of eight nominations. And in October 2019, several films were touted as the eventual best-pic winner, though “Parasite” was rarely on those lists.

    So October front-runner status is no guarantee. On the other hand, it isn’t a curse. Last year at this point, “Nomadland” seemed like the one to beat and it indeed won (though other best pic contenders including “Minari” and “Judas and the Black Messiah” were barely on the radar.)

    —-

    The Powers That Be seem to think declining viewership is an aberration and that TV audiences will return. They don’t want to admit that public tastes have changed and it’s not the host, the list of contenders, the political speeches or any other scapegoat. In the 1990s, U.S. viewing of Oscars hovered at 40 million-45 million; in the past six years, it’s gradually dropped from 34 million to 10 million.

    The public simply doesn’t view awards shows in the way it did many decades ago.

    I saw someone on Twitter comparing the new West Side Story posters to the one for American Sniper. And, I mean…

    House of Gucci screams I Tonya energy. It’s going to get nominated for Best Picture just like how I Tonya was in tenth place.

    Bruh. House of Gucci looks AMAZING. What a huge actors vehicle. Ridley Scott didnt come to play this year. The Last Duel was fantastic and its sad that it might not get any recognition and the oscars.

    Hope House of Gucci makes up for Last Duel. Hope it gets picture and actress at least in the big categories. Nominations of course. Jared Leto might get nominated…theres a scene in the trailer or 2…boy am I hyped. This is what this season awards is needing

    Yeah, Gucci looks like a lot of fun. Some of y’all just need to let loose and enjoy a fun campy movie like this. I think if it gets decent reviews, it’ll do well across the board.

    Meanwhile, Passing has retained it’s level of critical acclaim. I genuinely worried it would get dragged down to the 70s, but nope. Tessa is looking more and more likely as a critics choice.

    I’m glad critics see it as a very thoughtful film and Rebecca Hall is getting a LOT of ink. It’s not as cold as Tragedy of Macbeth, that’s a goooood sign.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if Al Pacino gets nominated at all. Really good stuff here

    YES! Lets talk about that for a moment. It highlighted him over Leto who just got some really cringe slapstick here.

    Driver plays a straight man to the colorful cast. That tends to be thankless but it also works in the context, gives a movie respite from OTT bravuras all the time. So it won’t be everyone just being crazy.
