    VS:

    A western versus a musical makes this race feel very 20th century.

    Re-invention of the western beats a remake of a previous winner?

    Honey, WSS is awful. I’m only predicting it as the competition against TPOTD because let’s face it…

    Belflop lives up to its nickname. It flopped on its face and has flopped this entire season. That leaves me with (and I can’t take credit for this as Barbara so effortlessly DID that) Another Remake Story seems the only challenger to Dog

    Just watched The lost daughter and i think its an extraordinary, unique, rare gem of a movie that wont win major Oscars but its still great. Maggie is very talented, cant believe this is her debut. Olivia as always phenomenal, and Buckley and Johnson were great too. Overall a great movie that i wont forget.

    My favourite used to be Power of the dog,but now its tied with The Lost daughter. Both great, both sutil masterpieces. TPOTD has more Oscar chances, though, but i still think TLD is phenomenal

    I also watched Dont look up and, while it was a very good movie, entretaining, great message, i think its not on the same level of TLD or TPOTD

    It’s still TPOTD vs Belfast.

    I know it’s probably a super long shot but I really wanna see Drive My Car nominated for BP. I guess it’s pretty likely to be nominated for International BP, but is there any route for it to get in BP as well?

    TLD is great. Netflix has 3 good horses in the race. TPOTD has the best shot at BP though and I reckon they should focus on it.

    I don’t know why Dune is being so underestimated. We always talk about how the Academy is expanding and changing and their is no such thing as a “non-traditional” BP winner after The Shape of Water, Moonlight, Parasite, and Nomadland and yet Dune is too sci-fi to win BP despite being well reviewed, successful, a technical marvel, and a lock in multiple categories?

    The sequel is the main issue I think, apart from usual genre-bias. Same thing happened to fellowship of the ring.

    Yeah, that’s my major hangup: voting for something in mid-stream as opposed to waiting for a completed work.

    OTOH, Fellowship of the Ring did gangbusters in crafts even if they waited for Return of the King to really dole out the awards.
