    Apparently, from what I heard Cate filmed her part in 2 weeks, it´s not big (although it´s important) part.

    Is it possible this was counting only the time before production was halted bc of the pandemic?

    I can see Mara being the lead tho, but even tho she looks like she has the most screentime she’s…4th billed which makes not much sense to me

    The problem here is not it will be “too dark” but “too Del Toro”, too out there, weird and unappealing to voters. Unlike TSoW which felt more joyful and lighter, and had themes that connected with The Academy, this one feels just his exercise into the noir genre with nothing to say.

    This is quite possible. I mean, the whole thing about “man or beast”… what could there be to say that hasn’t been said a million times already?

    Anyway, the Cast is arranged based on their last name apart from Cooper

    Blanchett was done filming before they halted for the pandemic. She didn’t film after the pandemic at all.

    Nightmare Alley still has Searchlight and that alone leaves its name in strong conversation. Wasnt so wowed by the teaser but it can still turn out fine.

    Exactly.

    The Oscars are a distributors game and the only time Searchlight has ever missed Best Picture in the past decade was in 2017 (Jackie was their only player, that wasn’t with a 10 slots field and Larrain was not as much on the academy’s radar at the time as Del Toro and Anderson are now – and it still got 3 noms) so if you’re not predicting this you should be predicting The French Dispatch (and that’s not happening).

    2021: Nomadland
    2020: Jojo Rabbit

    2019: The Favourite
    2018: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, The Shape of Water
    2017: None
    2016: Brooklyn
    2015: Birdman, The Grand Budapest Hotel
    2014: 12 Years a Slave
    2013: Beats of the Southern Wild
    2012: The Descendants, The Tree of Life
    2011: 127 Hours, Black Swan

    Oscars FYC:

    Blanchett was done filming before they halted for the pandemic. She didn’t film after the pandemic at all.

    Yeah exatly, her role was so small that she was the only one from the main cast that had finshed filming before the coronavirus break, and they in total have been filming for only a month at that point.

    Second part of the filming took almost all of the fall of 2020.

    Her role is really small.

    Here is one of the few articles which did mention that she had wrapped before the break.

    Regarding Denis comments, right or wrong he is no one to bash on other peoples work and the fans. Calling them zombies ? The fact is, general audience would have to be Zombies to go through BR2049 because its rough. Its the truth. And Scott Derrickson responded to his comments in the most factual and truthful way: “As a director I don’t slag on the work of other directors even when I don’t like something they’ve made. This job is hard enough for all of us, and nobody ever sets out to make a bad movie.” Why is Denis getting out of his place on other filmmakers job ? Isnt Denis the one that says theatrical experience is the only way ? Guess what. Marvel movies is what is keeping theaters now. And the reality is that it wont be Dune. Dune will be lucky to make in its total domestic box office run Shang-Chi’s opening weekend. For some reason, people show up for Marvel movies and not for his. These comments are in really poor taste. He could simply say Marvel movies are not his coupe of tea. As a big fan of the Dune books, this surely is a letdown because Ill bet you he lost some Marvel fans that would go support this in theaters. If Dune doesnt get a Part 2, F to WB for putting it on HBO Max and F for Denis for saying unnecessary shit. Hes not above anyone.

    Denis is entitled to have his own opinion.

    and dont pretend that every single person know who TF Denis Villeneuve is or will keep up with the news about him. FilmTwitter/Marvel online stans can be very different from casual moviegoers who just happen to watch Marvel and othet ftanchises

    He didn’t bash Marvel movies, he said some really obvious, basically neutral things about their artistic process, insecure Marvel stans are of course going to obsess over this for years, just like the Scorsese thing.

    Lol, most blind marvel stans twist those words around and framing Marty and Denis bash their movies lol. For the record, Marty love Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 and those stans are clearly miss the point.

    As an MCU fan myself, Marvel stans can be very toxic and dumb at times.
