Does it mean anything that “CODA” and “West Side Story” were left off?January 19, 2022 at 1:13 pm #1204738769
WSS was eligible. They just don’t like musicals.January 19, 2022 at 1:22 pm #1204738786
Now having seen Drive My Car, I can confirm that it should be winning in a landslide. Unfortunately it won’t because Janus is such a weak studio for campaigns, but I’m now confident that it’ll be nominated. Its main obstacle right now is definitely visibility, but that’s what free screeners are for, and the people who have seen it will probably be putting it at the top of their ballots. This movie deserves everything.

I think it’s more likely than, say, Branagh winning Director or whatever, but still not particularly likely. The Academy isn’t a hive mind, they don’t all collectively go “oh let’s spread the wins around.” Is it possible enough of them do to make a difference? Yes, but that’s just a hypothetical.January 19, 2022 at 1:51 pm #1204738864
the over performance with the Bafta longlist
Didn’t Marlee Matlin miss BAFTA longlists? I think the only mention CODA got there that felt kind of surprising was Sound, but that still made sense since it’s such a music-heavy film.
Having said that, my top 5 is normally just the DGA 5 so I haven’t really thought of where it ranks among the BP contenders at this stage. If we’re using BAFTA and SAG as indicators then I think I’d maybe put DLU in 5th place now after POTD/Belfast/WSS/Dune.January 19, 2022 at 1:53 pm #1204738871
Is Coda being underestimated? I’m thinking with the SAG ensemble and the over performance with the Bafta longlist it’s looking to be a top 5 contender. For the longest time I had it in the bottom 5, but something tells me to reconsider. I also think it’s a strong chance to win Adapted. It’s obvious that Jane is likely winning director, and I think Academy voters are going to want to spread the wealth. I don’t see this as another Parasite where it won Director, Picture, and Screenplay. I see a possibility of votes being split when it comes to Adapted, and could go in Codas direction as opposed to TPOTD. What do you think?
Did it really overperform at the BAFTAs tho? Marlee Matlin wasn’t longlisted. Regarding Adapted, I think it’s winning WGA, since most of that category is basically ineligible and I don’t see them going with first part of a sci-fi movie or with a musical. With that said, Jane is still (more than likely) winning Adapted at the CCA and BAFTA. So idk. I don’t really think its that strong tbh.January 19, 2022 at 2:03 pm #1204738912This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.January 19, 2022 at 2:16 pm #1204738937January 19, 2022 at 2:47 pm #1204738975
If this prevents Gucci and Ricardos from getting in, sure as hell go for it.January 19, 2022 at 3:45 pm #1204739101

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.
ah yeah seems dificult they repeat at oscar. It’s important in the aspect that a movie not nominated to DGA is automaticaly eliminated for the oscar race. Like happend with the favourite ( and i think the only reason that movie not had a DGA nom was because not has a golden globe director nom and sga ensamble nom because was in the top 5 in the oscar races before the DGA nominations)Not now
