    Damn I registered for the BAFTA Q and A but then missed it because I had a few re-writes to do and forgot about it. The irony I attended almost all the other ones but missed the one for my favourite film of this awards season.

    Ah well I just have to wait for it to go on YouTube.

    But if each color represents something in particular: During the film, we never see her write with red ink, I believe…perhaps this is indicative of the altercation becoming violent. If this is the case, then the colors correspond with how the men respond to Cassie’s plot. It could also be the case that the colors correspond with the way in which the men assault her–see Cassie saying a lot of guys don’t wait for her to wake up before they stick their fingers in her.

    I think it has to do with the levels the men go to before Cassie reveals herself. The first guy (Adam Brody) and the second guy (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) got different colors. The main difference I discern is that the first guy non-consensually kissed her while the second guy non-consensually fingered her. It could also have to do with the way they respond, but we don’t get to see how the first guy responds to Cassie revealing herself.

    It’s quite obvious to any objective viewer in the current climate that Carey (or Vanessa) should win…but this is the Oscars…the same that awarded Frances McDormand over Emily Watson and Brenda Blethyn. So it’s going to Frances of Viola. I say no more.

    Late to the party with this one but glad to finally be here. Loved this. Mulligan is so good – not surprising, but I hope this role gets her the recognition she deserves as one of her generation’s best actresses. It seems like it kind of is already. Wouldn’t be surprised if she won, although I wouldn’t have her as my favourite I don’t think. For the film as a whole, I think it has a good chance at a few nominations – I understand why it’s divisive, both thematically and narratively, though. It’s odd for me to see a film and understand why it’s so beloved by some and hated by others, but I think both sides are pretty evident and credible here. I side more with the former, but think it may be too divisive to threaten for a win in Picture. Fennell could get in in Director, but I don’t think I’ll predict her anywhere yet – but this is a bold film, and her script is a bold one which I think should secure an Original nom. Lots of good techs on display too – I think it’s editing is a strong point, as is the cinematography. Burnham is great, but I don’t think it’s the kind of role that will secure a nomination.

    Overall I see this as win-competitive in Actress and Original Screenplay. I’d guess at between 3 to 5 noms overall, with its divisive nature and a few issues with the storytelling holding it back in the Picture preferential ballot. Will be a lot of people’s #1 choice though, so definitely one to keep an eye on.

    Those looks ❤️. She’s beautiful and the camera loves her.

    Give me an HBO comedy led by this woman.

    Emerald and Carey are coming for the win.

    Lewis Arnold is a legendary creative. He should get all the television awards for Des.

    They really moved the German release until after the Oscars. Does anyone know how to watch it online anywhere without being in the US? Are there any screeners online?

    I just learned that Clancy Brown — the voice actor for Mr. Krabs in Spongebob Squarepants — is in this movie, playing Carey’s dad.

    Brown has several other performances that have been overlooked (especially in The Shawshank Redemption). What are the chances that he gets a nomination someday?
