    The way people are overlooking major snubs for CODA & WSS & proclaiming them in second place really is something.

    WSS obviously isn’t winning bp but I’m glad to see people stanning a masterpiece. However, I’ll take solace in knowing that the strongest part of WSS and best performance of the year is sweeping.

    The fighting for second place probably says something about Belfast’s chances right now, especially if it loses SAG ensemble.

    I don’t fully understand the CONFIDENCE with which people are saying West Side Story has no chance when the fact that it’s trending on twitter before it’s even actually available on streamers but just up on torrent sits proves that A LOT of people are watching it who hadn’t before, which could just as easily apply to academy members.

    Yes, it missed a few key nominations, but we already know they were late to send out screeners and so it’s perfectly possible that people in the editing branch or writers branch just hadn’t bothered to watch it because they heard it was a flop and now if it becomes a streaming hit will be tempted to watch it. This is a VERY different oscar season than usual (much more time between nominations and final voting – plus pandemic) so clinging on to old statistics is imo a little bit of a risk. I just feel like with 2 full months between nominations and the final ceremony it is perfectly possible for a shift in buzz to make a difference. Stats are broken more and more in recent years, so let’s just keep an open mind.

    For the record, I also think Don’t Look Up has a serious shot and it missed some key nominations. It’s just that after Green Book and Argo and Birdman and Shape of Water all breaking supposed “rules” I’ve accepted that sometimes rules are going to be broken. TPOTD is absolutely the frontrunner and will probably win, but any of WSS, Belfast, or Don’t Look Up probably has a shot.

    West Side Story literally missed Adapted Screenplay and BAFTA Best Film. It is DONE. I don’t know why people cling on to the “screener issues” excuse so much when 1917, a movie that had a wide release in January (WSS’s wide release was in December btw), got in Original Screenplay.

    WSS is obviously not winning BP, but a rise in momentum could make it competitive for cinematography and production design.

    The Power of the Dog is just too powerful. Resistance is futile. It’s over. None of these weak azz movies compare. Give it up.
