    There’s a very strange vibe from some pundits at the moment around TPOTD. It’s favoured in director & screenplay and is strong in supporting actress, supporting actor, score & in the race for actor.

    But it can’t win picture. It makes no sense. Why can’t it? Because they decide it can’t?

    People might be rooting against King Richard here, but it has the same RT rating as Belfast and both are in the 70s on MC — and, again, Belfast has been raking up Audience Awards except where King Richard’s also played. It’s weird to fall in line with one as a perceived frontrunner and dismiss the other’s chances entirely.

    Are pundits aside from the Hollywood Elsewhere types really saying Campion’s film can’t win BP, though? I’m seeing more buzz that it can but it won’t be a wide open path for it or any other contender thanks to the elevated competitive nature of this year’s race. Nomadland was as much an “easy early call” for BP because of the level of its likely competition (lower than this year’s crop, or 2019’s) as it was because of the film’s own strengths.

    It’s not rooting against King Richard. The point is that TPOTD is a major contender yet some pundits are trying to make it a two horse Belfast-Richard race.

    In the preferential era, critical acclaim has trumped crowd pleasers, which is why a high MC contender such as TPOTD shouldn’t be dismissed against 2 much lower MC contenders.

    Despite Nomadland being called an easy early call there were still multiple overrationalizations saying why this film wouldn’t do well at large for being slow, too indie or whatever. If you check GG odds The Trial of the Chicago 7 was the frontrunner by quite some advantage. This all fell short and Nomadland was the biggest BP sweeper in a long time.

    The same critique for The Power of the Dog could fall very short, but at the same time this year has stronger films in contention than last year.

    Jeffrey Wells is certainly off the deep end about the issue, there are others that think it’s too dark or not crowd pleasing enough.

    These pundits are players guys, they push their favourites into the conversation.

    Btw, not so related to predicting but imagine how wonderful if Chloe Zhao presents best director to Jane Campion on stage. Amazing to witness already.

    Yes first back to back female Best Directors is a great story, on top of the Campion Comeback narrative.

    These things do matter to voters.

    Imagine the trio girl power Oscar photo with Campion, Wegner & Dunst.

    Ah well if you’re referring to GD odds I typically find them safely ignorable – the SAG ensemble win for Chicago 7 didn’t faze me because I’ve long felt that the Oscar BP-SAG Ensemble correlation has been far too overstated in general.
