    I’d say West Side Story is the likeliest. ITH did poorly at the box office and is unlikely to be remembered come March. Evan Hansen looks pretty poor. I don’t have much faith in WSS personally, but at the minute it’s ahead of those two.

    I would be extremely shocked if In the Heights got any nominations if I’m being honest, but it is truly an incredible film. Hopefully it gets some love at maybe the SAGs or something

    I have TTB and WSS getting in for picture right now. WSS could appeal to older voters.

    So is the only reason I’m seeing Eternals get predicted on some sites because of Chloe Zhao? Obviously haven’t seen it yet, but MCU has only broken into Best Picture with Black Panther and I don’t really see it happening again. It’s an amazing franchise truly, but the Oscars have been snooty towards it

    It will get released on TIFF as well.

    Michael Pearce is a BAFTA winner for Beast (Best Debut), but the premise of the movie doesn’t seem like it’s a very oscar friendly movie. It’s a sci-fi

    On top of that, they must be worried that Being the Ricardos doesn’t get ready and they won’t have a top contender for the Oscars.

    I’ve been told that Netflix is waiting to see how Don’t Look Up performs before they decide to campaign it for awards. Apparently it’s more like McKay’s comedies than his Oscar films. Take that as you will…

    Also big diverse cast that could win SAG. Feige also tweeted that it would win Best Picture, if that matters.

    This seems unlikely given that it’s not coming out until what, December? Presumably Netflix will have needed to do media buys etc before then.

    But Dune can’t. Suuure. I was right that part of Dune hate is induced by Marvelites who are afraid of its stealing Eternals thunder. Double standard there.

    Also, last time I checked, Vin Diesel tweeted that some F&F movie was going to win Best Picture too.

    it doesn’t make much sense to me either, but I’m just repeating what I’ve been told. Don’t shoot the messenger

    Thought so. It’s a HUGE TENTPOLE ENSEMBLE film. And a comedy. Those actually aren’t anywhere near as Oscar-friendly as people think they are. Same for musicals like The Prom and Nine, which have loads of “pedigree.”

    Well, it could be very commercially successful as a holiday movie. And if that gets them some awards attention, great. Otherwise…they’ll always have the $$$

    On top of that, they must be worried that Being the Ricardos doesn’t get ready and they won’t have a top contender for the Oscars.

    Amazon has Annette and The Electrical Life of Louis Wain (no release date and what of Cumberbatch already having his vehicle so maybe…best to push till 2022? It looks good!) Neither seem likely as big contenders, even if I still think Driver’s best chance is with Annette. Foy maybe could get in with Louis Wain.

    FWIW, the plot is sci-fi yeah but there’s a new kind of sci-fi film that has been made that is much more in the drama zone and could easily be embraced by the Academy. I always wonder what would’ve happened if Midnight Special hadn’t been dumped early the same year that Jeff Nichols made Loving. Midnight Special is a fantastic film with a fairly restrained approach to sci-fi (like Arrival, which is arguably more sci-fi than Midnight Special). If films like Encounter or Swan Song are at all similar and if they position themselves at the right time, they could definitely be Oscar friendly. Not to mention: Dune is pretty hardcore sci-fi, so if and when that happens, the Academy’s tendency to dismiss sci-fi will be at least somewhat weakened.

    I’m not – just responding with a thought. As FYC ads etc will need to be purchased if they are going to campaign it.
