    Has a film ever won Best Cinematography while being snubbed at ASC?

    Yes, West Side Story will be the 3rd time.

    We must prepare ourselves for the potential meltdowns if Superman gets a PGA nomination this Thursday.

    I saw AW predicting it and I don’t know how seriously I’m supposed to take it.

    That’s the way it should be darling.

    Oh, I absolutely agree.

    Also, The Academy (like most institutions these days) has an incentive to promote “global citizenship”.

    You even hear them indoctrinating children with that kind of terminology in Disney DVD extras these days…

    I’m all for it. I hope that Parasite permanently blew the doors off, so to speak, and wasn’t just a “Look, see, we did it once so we never have to do it again”

    If it’s not Drive My Car in the tenth spot, than I hope it’s Flee.

    Parasite was obviously a huge step, but it’s not as though foreign movies have never broken through before: Amelie, off the top of my head, was one. It just needs to be maintained.

    Darlings, this race seems quite boring with those mediocre titles in contention. Hopefully, House of Mario Bros gets nominated (which is actually happening) for everything and turns this boredom into something exciting.

    As a famous singer said, "ain't nobody gonna Thatcher, Thatcher, Thatcher!"

    I’m truly considering Coen showing up at DGA because of how well it’s been doing with guilds and because it got released on Apple TV + literally in the middle of the voting period.

    I don’t know who to take out, though. Branagh is a quintessential DGA pick that ultimately misses the Oscar (Sorkin, Greengrass, Farrelly, Clint Eastwood, Ridley Scott, etc) and Spielberg has 11 DGA nominations. Paul Thomas Anderson, maybe ? I think Licorice Pizza already has a very low nomination ceiling, but Anderson could miss this and then gets in at the Oscars.

    House of Gucci will overperform this Thursday. Of course, totally not happening in DGA, but it’s a lock in PGA and a shoo-in for the fifth spot in WGA adapted with all half of the contenders being ineligible.

    Anderson will miss, McKay get in. The boomer vote will make Don’t Look Up overperform and we should just try to come to terms with it. Sigh.

    I put Tragedy of Macbeth back in picture, really shouldn’t be difficult for it to get in if people are actually watching it and recognising how good it is. It’s above tick tick boom and probably Ricardos and Gucci too.

    There is no way Anderson has any chance at getting in at DGA. He’s only been nominated once. And I really don’t think he gets in at the Oscars. Pizza will barely get nominated for anything

    He was only expected to get nominated at DGA once, for There Will be Blood.

    Nightmare Alley is launching streaming platforms this week. Not sure if it will do any help to its award contention, but they’re definitely trying to get more people to watch the film

    He isn’t. The movie is emotional, personal, has great visuals, and he gets an excellent performance out of a child protagonist. People miss with the Oscars when their directing has more basic visuals or is considered impersonal. Or just special circumstances like Peter Jackson, where he was nominated the year prior and everyone knew he would probably win for Return of the King.

    Villeneuve and McKay would be the more typical snubs, with their work on these films possibly being seen as too commercial.
