    Because they got the ensemble nomination, they weren’t elegible for the individual acting categories.

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    I want to clarify the order of Spirit deliberations. They have a mandate to spread the wealth, so nominations in some categories make you ineligible in others.

    Winning the Robert Altman Award precludes the cast from individual nominations in the four regular acting categories.

    They first decide the main Feature, Director and Screenplay nominees. Anything nominated in Feature or Director is ineligible for First Feature. Anything nominated in Screenplay is ineligible for First Screenplay. So:

    Promising Young Woman: Snubbed in Feature → Nominated in Director → Ineligible in First Feature

    Sound of Metal: Snubbed in Feature → Snubbed in Director → Nominated in First Feature

    One Night in Miami…: Snubbed in Feature → Snubbed in Director → Snubbed in First Feature

    Note: Regina King is a Spirit winner because the director shares in the Altman Award, but this does not preclude her from a Director nomination. Spotlight and Moonlight won both for example.

    Love that The Invisible Man is an Indie Spirit Nominee. Wow

    To think this started life as a spin-off to 2017’s “The Mummy”.

    Nine Days in Supporting Actor and First Feature but literally nowhere else? Not even Supporting Actress or First Screenplay? Embarassing. It literally has the best screenplay of the year period.

    FYC:

    Lead Actor: Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round)

    Supporting Actress: Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm)

    Supporting Actor: Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

    I am not a fan of how Editing has become the go-to category this season to acknowledge The Invisible Man. It feels very much like these groups did not have space for it in the major categories, but wanted to throw it a bone somewhere and they do not care about editing anyway, so might as well be there. Unless you count the visual effects as editing, it is not a particularly showy achievement in editing. Nothing wrong with the editing, but that is true of a lot of films—that are being acknowledged in the main races. Not saying that it is not individually deserving, but it rubs me the wrong way, like how you feel when you see someone nominated over a better performance in the same film or that kind of thing.

    I suppose they were trying to spread the wealth but I don’t understand how a film gets nominated for Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Actress but NOT Best Feature.  I hope the omission here doesn’t hurt Promising Young Women’s chances for a Best Picture nomination elsewhere.

    I’d be surprised. I think if something from the movie turns up it would be screenplay. I don’t have high hopes though.

    Best Screenplay: Never Rarely Sometimes Always (Eliza Hitman)
    Best Actress: Sidney Flanigan ("Never Rarely Sometimes Always")

    Especially happy with NRSA over-performance and Yeri Han’s mention!

    I would respond too this but it seems you’re being provocative and just refusing to be polite when you’re disagreeing with others. Some of us are predicting an over-performance for PYW and some aren’t? So what? You’re predicting The Trial of the Chicago 7 to be the Oscar frontrunner. Does that mean you’re a massive stan of that? No. You and Yu Terry keep posting about how you found Promising Young Woman overrated and bad and then accusing others of letting their own personal bias influencing their predictions and I find that inherently hypocritical. It’s ok to let your personal qualitative thoughts influence your predictions and it’s ok to disagree with others but you shouldn’t just descend to childish regressive retorts when you disagree with someone.  

    Why do you sound like you feel you’re the judge here and try to high-road people? I’ve had only one comment about PYW Jesus….  Or are you so desperate that you keep track of everyone who likes the posts with message against PYW? That sounds scary. We all know you’re the biggest stan of PYW here and I’ve said nothing against you personally, right?  So now calling me out personally and judging people with those subjective words?   Every film gets good and bad words here but you only focus on people who talked against PYW.  Did PYW the only film here get response like “I think it’s too high on your prediction” or “it might be overestimated”?  Why are they okay for other films while “childish” for PYW?

    Relax and let go. Don’t be triggered like this because somebody said your fav is overestimated next time. Let people talk.
