    What do you think?

    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.

    If any film deserves Oscar consideration, it’s The Lost City Of Z.

    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.

    I think Get Out‘s sole play is indeed in Original Screenplay.

    What about Betty Gabriel and Daniel Kaluuya from Get Out?

    I think Get Out has its best chances in Original Screenplay.

    Allison Williams would get the push over Betty Gabriel.

    That would be a shame as Betty Gabriel gave an incredible stand out performance.

    Never.

    Obviously no one from that movie is getting nominated, but Williams and Keener will definitely get bigger pushes than the nobody Betty Gabriel.

    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.

    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.

    We shouldn’t fool ourselves, though…if anyone out of the three making the cut, it’s Keener. I still think that Williams is pretty unknown.
