    I think that Dune will start gaining a lot more power as the season continues. It looks like it’s such an amazing cinematic experience that when it hits theaters audiences will hype it enough for BP and director nominations

    Not necessarily. It needs general audiences, not just fans, and it’s a lot to ask a casual viewer to get invested in a complex story that may or may not ever get finished.

    Based on the content of reactions/reviews rather than the overall RT score, my view:

    In:
    The Power of The Dog
    Belfast
    King Richard

    Not so sure:
    Dune
    Parallel Mothers Spencer
    The Lost Daughter C’mon c’mon

    Out:
    The French Dispatch The Hand of God
    The Card Counter (yes, I know it’s 100% on RT now)
    Cyrano

    That’s pretty much what’s going on now. “Spencer” seems to belong to the “out” field now.

    It’s worth nothing that 3 out of the 4 “rotten” reviews for Spencer in RT come from british critics so it could definitely be more divisive as a film there than in America. If they want to have a chance besides Stewart, they need to keep an eye on the British block and try to campaign their ass off there.

    I’m starting to feel The French Dispatch will be this year’s Da 5 Bloods.

    FYC:

    "The Good Fight", "The Other Two" and "Station Eleven" in all categories, Sarah Lancashire ("Julia"), William Jackson Harper ("Love Life") and Luke Kirby ("The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel")

    1. The Hand of God – 8.7/10

    But why a 76 on Metacritic? This discrepancy is bewildering.

    I somewhat doubt it will even be that aside for maybe a CC Picture nomination.

    Not every movie is gonna be for everyone, still praising Anya makes me think she might get the nod.

    I’ve read negative reviews of The French Dispatch saying it’s not funny at all and tries too hard with the humor but it fails to land for some audience members. The story and character just doesn’t stick with people while the craftmanship is the salient component of the film.

    Really small sample sizes tend to produce nonsensical results. Let’s just wait for everything to clear up with more reviews on RT and MC.

    I don’t disagree with the notion that Spencer could go nowhere except for Stewart. But her hype could push the movie to a BP nom, considering we have 10 slots and the voters will struggle to find 10 movies.

    It’s been really hard to win lead acting categories without a BP nomination. In Actress, Streep, Blanchett, Moore and Zellweger did it. In Actor it seems to be almost impossible. Oldman pushed Darkest Hour to a nomination. Sandra Bullock also did the same with The Blind Side.

    This is a reason why I still don’t have her #1.

    Actresses playing real life figures don’t need their film to be nominated in Best Picture to win. It would help but it is not necessary. Zellweger, Streep, Cotillard, Witherspoon, Theron all played real life people and their films were not nominated in Best Picture and still won.

    Early reactions are useless for pretty much every film. I value the word of critics just as much as a friend who knows exactly what my film tastes are bit at the end of the day the former group is the one that’s going to be contributing to these film’s Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic scores.

    He’s one of the critics I trust and usually agree with. That’s why it’s not a good news about Soho for me. I’ll wait for the embargo to get a clearer consensus.

    Anya getting a nod but probably the Saturn awards.
