I know they are clueless, but this is the updated Best Picture Prediction by NBP team. THE TOP 10 PREDICTIONS (1/19/22) 1. Belfast 2. The Power of the Dog 3. West Side Story 4. Licorice Pizza 5. King Richard (^) 6. Dune (v) 7. CODA 8. Don’t Look Up 9. Being The Ricardos (NEW) 10. House of Gucci (NEW) This is looking very populist line-up. Is Tragedy of MacBeth vulnerable?
I feel like people relying too much on the BAFTA longlist, we still don’t know how much of that will translate to actual nominations. HoG still possible but Being the Ricardos is a longshot imo.January 19, 2022 at 8:30 am #1204738233
Nightmare Alley was barely mentioned at the BAFTAs Longlist, does this mean it is DOA for Oscars ?January 19, 2022 at 9:14 am #1204738295

Erm, like I mentioned it’s going to be interchangeable with Tragedy of MacBeth. Only one of the films could get in. This is similar to Nightmare Alley over-performing in the Critics Choice Awards. And Tragedy of MacBeth being snubbed on that particular awards (CCA)January 19, 2022 at 10:21 am #1204738425

What is the Drive My Car equivalent to the dance in Another Round or the pillow scene in Amour? I don’t think it’s splitting hairs, there’s a reason why no film like this has ever been nominated for Best Director at the Oscars.
the final 30-40 minutes of Drive My Car is better than most of the films predicted to get a BP nom this yearJanuary 19, 2022 at 11:22 am #1204738524
I wouldn’t read too much into the SAG/DGA correspondence. Usually the SAG ensemble nominations have more correlation to the top 5 Best Picture nominees, which this year according to GD odds are “The Power of the Dog”, “Belfast”, “West Side Story”, “Dune” and “Licorice Pizza”. It’s not like this has suddenly changed with the SAG ensemble nominations. “CODA” or “ King Richard” are not winning Best Picture or receiving a DGA nomination only because they received a SAG ensemble nomination! “West Side Story” had screener issues with the SAG nomination committee, “Dune” is not an actor-driven film, “Licorice Pizza” has 2 unknown leads and some extended cameos, while “The Power of the Dog” has a very small ensemble cast of 4 people.
?? last year GB odds have ma rainey in the top three, so GB odds are not reliable of who is the top 5 of the race. And jojo rabbit was nominated clearly because of the SAG nom. A star is born probably was also nominated for DGA best film only because of the SAG nom( the other option were black panther, bohemian rhapsody and crzy rich asians) , becausa DGA not like so much his directing and lost in best first film when he was nominated in that category and in best filmJanuary 19, 2022 at 11:25 am #1204738535
but well, if you and the people who like your coment like to be wrong in predictions go ahead and predict licorice pizza in DGA ( at this point seems equivalent to have nightmare alley in oscar best picture prediction)January 19, 2022 at 11:48 am #1204738586
Being the Ricardos feels like a weaker Bombshell except it didn’t even make it in SAG ensemble when it should have. Bombshell had a make-up nomination while BTR was snubbed. Bombshell even has a higher Metacritic and audience score. I don’t buy this abomination making it in picture.

and the main problem with don’t look up in DGA is that doesn’t seem to be in top 5 of the race by almost no one, more like top 7/8. But CODA and king richard have trades thinking is in top 5 at leastJanuary 19, 2022 at 12:32 pm #1204738680

Even if Adam McKay, Sian Heder or Reinaldo Marcus Green got a DGA nomination, which I think is unlikely, I doubt that they would repeat at the Oscars, so I wouldn’t scratch my head too much.January 19, 2022 at 12:54 pm #1204738714
Macbeth got a scripter nom, I think it’s in the mix for a BP slot.
And Netflix scored 3 out of 5, no sign of Netflix bias here.Not now
