    I think that Dune’s and Villeveive’s biggest obstacle to winning (not to a nomination) is that it’s part 1. They may want to see the whole thing before awarding it, like LOTR.

    I hope PTA and Wes Anderson get their long overdue Oscar wins this year, in either screenplay or directing or even picture. They are much more deserving than Villenueve right now.

    This! I’m especially excited for PTA, who I consider the best director working today. Can’t believe we still know so little about Soggy Bottom so I hope there’s some news coming around soon.

    I think this is maybe Jane Campion’s to lose. Don’t forget: she didn’t win for The Piano nor did it win Best Picture (should have). With her it’s also about her comeback after ages, plus the fact that she’s considered an auteur. Plus: guys, the book is…amazing. Echoes of There Will Be Blood, Brokeback Mountain, Phantom Thread, and Nomadland. It might look like Nomadland, but it’s far more tense and vicious, and it has immensely strong commentary on masculinity and indigenous people.

    It helps her that so far the contenders seem pretty thin on women directors. I hope but I don’t think Rebecca Hall or Maggie Gyllenhaal can pull it off. Both are also adapting fantastic books—but they’re not Jane Campion.

    Based on what we know so far, I think Campion’s in the lead, but two other directors feel super competitive in terms of Academy members wanting them to win: Wes Anderson & Asghar Farhadi. Anderson hasn’t won Best Director yet & Farhadi is immensely respected and one of these days some foreign director other than the 3 amigos will win, and who better placed than Farhadi?

    Edgar Wright has tremendous buzz, I think Soho will do well—not sure he’ll win Best Director—the film will hit, he’ll get nominated but a win seems premature (like it probably did for Yorgos Lanthimos, Benh Zeitlin, and other flashy up-and-coming directors at the time their films came out). The PTA factor: I don’t know. Of course he could hit big, I perhaps don’t see the immense thematic resonance that could make him win, but he’s a wildcard!

    So I guess I’ll revise: I think it’s between Jane Campion & Wes Anderson. Which would be…wow!

    Justice for Passing, Tessa Thompson & Ruth Negga.

    The Power of the Dog / Jane Campion / Benedict Cumberbatch / Kristen Stewart / Kirsten Dunst / Troy Kotsur

    At this point, this is still everybody’s to lose (except for Del Toro, he just won 3 years ago). They may not giving Edgar Wright the win immediately this year, but he can win Original Screenplay first. Besides, many Directors are overdue for win than Wright (who is ovedue for nomination).

     

    Its ridiculous that someone mentioned The Piano shouldve won BP because something called Schindler’s List exists

     

    FYC:
    Best Director: Edgar Wright, Guillermo Del Toro, Jane Campion
    Best Picture: Nightmare Alley, The Power of the Dog
    Best Actress: Kristen Stewart, Thomasin McKenzie, Rooney Mara, Tessa Thompson
    Best Actor: Benedict Cumberbatch, Bradley Cooper
    Best S. Actress: Cate Blanchett, Diana Rigg, Anya Taylor Joy
    Best S. Actor: Kodi Smit McPhee, Willem Dafoe, Richard Jenkins

    That didn’t stop Cuarón from winning twice in five years, or Iñárritu from winning back to back.

    Roma is an actual masterpiece and the competition was incredibly weak.
    Inarritu instead had the incredible luck of benefiting from the huge hype around DiCaprio’s performance and his overdue narrative at the time.

    Del Toro won’t have any of that and he has already won for a movie many in retrospect think didn’t age greatly compared to other films of that same year such as Dunkirk, Get Out, Phantom Thread, Lady Bird, Call Me By Your Name, Three Billboards, etc..

    I just don’t see him competitive for the win.

    Both directorial achievements from Quaron and Inarritu were incredibly different from each other. Different studio, one was an arthouse drama and the other was a blockbuster. Both Nightmare Alley and The Shape of Water are similar in terms of the scale of filmmaking.

    DiCaprio was incredible in The Revenant, but yeah, Inarritu is definitely NOT deserving of two Oscars for Directing.
