    SpiderMan No Way Home has earned $253M in the film’s domestic box office opening weekend, the 3rd highest of all time. Debuted with an estimated $334.2M internationally. Estimated global total stands at $587.2M.

    Irrelevant but… kinda crazy.

    I’m starting to disbelieve that Anderson gets into director especially if the racism accusations intensify.

    I would take Spider Man in the BP line up before Don’t Look Up, Being the Ricardos, King Richard and Belfast every day.

    I would take A Hero, The Worst Person in the World, Parallel Mothers and Drive My Car over every major English-language contender (and Spider-Man) every day.

    Of all the Academy branches the directors are probably the least likely to penalise a contender simply because they dared to depict a scene where a character behaves in a racist manner and goes unchallenged (if what I’ve read about the scene is correct).

    They literally gave the child rapist Polanski an Oscar for director. I doubt they care.

    I am going to articulate the reason I think Steven Spielberg deserves to win the Oscar for his superb direction of West Side Story. Every single scene in WSS is brilliantly directed. Every scene has a vitality, motion, performances – he had to coordinate the music, work with the choreographer, coordinate the editing, the camera work. Every single acting performance is a total gem. He gets the tone right. This is the best directed movie of 2021. (Yes, I know: Jane Campion is winning most of the awards so far and while her work is excellent it simply isn’t as great as what Spielberg has achieved. You can disagree, fine, but I can disagree). I have never been a fan of Spielberg as a director but he sure has stunned me with his work on this movie. The dance at the gym sequence, the Cool sequence, the A Boy Like That sequence, the rumble sequence, the ending, the America sequence, the argument between Bernardo and Maria, the Somewhere sequence, the Maria sequence, the Tonight sequence, the Gee Officer Krupke number – every single scene in this movie is brilliantly directed. Snark away like you always do but this is the best direction of 2021 of the best film of 2021.

    That was pre-MeToo and pre-Weinstein’s prosecution. After the last five or so years I’m sure the Academy is more aware of these issues. Not to mention Stop Asian Hate and issues of racism being brought to National attention. Licorice Pizza is going to be penalized whether Goldderby likes it or not.
