I did recently watch Get Out a couple days ago, and I was very impressed with its originality. Do I think it should compete at the Oscars? I don’t know about that because it was released very early in the year where it may get lost in the shuffle. Plus, I doubt it will have much snob appeal.June 30, 2017 at 12:23 pm #1202138405
If any film deserves Oscar consideration, it’s The Lost City Of Z.June 30, 2017 at 12:53 pm #1202138430
The Lost City of Z and Get Out definitely deserve Oscar consideration, no question. I think the former will unfortunately get overlooked, but Get Out has a decent chance at Screenplay I think, at the very least. The Beguiled and The Big Sick are essentially July releases so they will both get major pushes, and deserve to (The Beguiled opens today, which is basically a July release, The Big Sick opens end of the week I think?) and will probably get traction for their performances. Both movies because they’re performing well at the indie box office basically have jump-started Oscar season.
With the others, it looks very dicey. I wish Maudie would get traction for Sally Hawkins but it’s not a great movie. Beatriz at Dinner was a good movie and I think Salma Hayek and John Lithgow for sure deserve attention but they weren’t Oscar-worthy and it won’t happen regardless. My Cousin Rachel was godawful (my lord was it bad!) and I hope Sam Elliott gets some traction for The Hero as well because I love that man but again the movie was not great. So all in all, there’s not too much to see here.June 30, 2017 at 2:16 pm #1202138463
What about Betty Gabriel and Daniel Kaluuya from Get Out?June 30, 2017 at 8:16 pm #1202138611This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.July 1, 2017 at 6:50 pm #1202139202This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.July 1, 2017 at 7:00 pm #1202139210
I think Get Out has its best chances in Original Screenplay.August 11, 2017 at 1:29 am #1202182017
Well maybe Betty Gabriel will get the biggest push not because she is a big name, but because her performance is the strongest. I give you multiple Oscar-nominee Catherine Keener, but since when Alison Williams is a big name? She was in Girls, but who the fuck cares? She is just as unknown as Gabriel.August 11, 2017 at 11:46 am #1202182435
Meh. He is overhyping the blockbusters. I’ll believe Wonder Woman and Logan getting BP noms when I see it.
Get Out seems like the lone contender other then the typical Sundance standouts.August 11, 2017 at 12:24 pm #1202182467This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.
