It would be great to see Hopkins coming for his second oscar but I don’t think Academy will reward a 84 years old actor that has given his best already. I mean how can you be so sure about hopkins sweeping if there are many acclaimed actors in the race like B.Cooper, C.Bale, Chalamet and G.Oldman? Then who knows, probabily driver with eitherAnnette or Ridley Scott’s movie.February 20, 2020 at 3:01 am #1203353315
After a relatively quiet year for the Brits (just 1 in each acting category, no British characters) I think 2021 has potential to rebound with several nominations. Some possibilities:
Brits playing Brits
Anthony Hopkins (The Father)
Benedict Cumberbatch (Louis Wain)
Kate Winslet (Ammonite)
Brits playing non-Brits
Tom Holland (Cherry)
Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman)
Eddie Redmayne / Sacha Baron Cohen (Trial of Chicago 7)
Gary Oldman and Tom Burke (Mank)
Daniel Kaluuya (Fred Hampton Movie)
Christian Bale (David O. Russell movie)
Jodie Comer (The Last Duel)February 20, 2020 at 3:05 am #1203353318

Without wishing to be indelicate, the subject matter of The Father (elderly man battles with his memory) might be a draw for the average Academy voter. Although perhaps its not the sort of movie you want to watch as you grow old.February 20, 2020 at 4:02 am #1203353327

Has SPC set a release date for it yet?February 20, 2020 at 6:15 am #1203353446
What are the chances of Jodie Comer being nominated / winning the category of best supporting actress for The Last Duel?February 20, 2020 at 6:15 am #1203353450
So, Cannes is going to be BIG this year. Parasite’s win is big for Cannes not just because it won the Palme, but because it’s an international film winning Best Picture, which means the Oscar buzz isn’t just going to be contained to a handful of American films that premiere mid-year rather than the late-year festival circuit. I wonder what international distributors are going to do to try and find the “next Parasite” or prop up films they already have.
To be fair, TIFF was the big thing after GB win and they did have Parasite as their second runner-up (behind Jojo Rabbit the winner, and Marriage story the first runner up). I don’t think that one win makes a festival an automatic oracle of oracles. It’s more a combo of receptions such as this one-two punch of Cannes and TIFF.
Just saw trailer for In the Heights. This gonna be big.February 20, 2020 at 7:26 am #1203353512
dunno if it was posted before, but there’s a Adam Mckay/Jennifer Lawrence comedy film from NETFLIX dropping later this year. (apparently it’ll start shoot on April)
Jennifer Lawrence will star in Adam McKay’s upcoming film “Don’t Look Up,” a comedy set to debut on Netflix later this year.
The movie, also written by McKay, follows two low-level astronomers who embark on media tour to warn mankind of an approaching asteroid that will destroy planet Earth.February 20, 2020 at 7:29 am #1203353520
Netflix thirsty for that awards cloutFebruary 20, 2020 at 7:30 am #1203353523
McKay is such mediocrity when he’s trying to be Oscar baity. I adore Talladega Nights but his Oscar opus is big fat zzzz. lets hope Jennifer Lawrence movie is more the former and less the latter.February 20, 2020 at 8:53 am #1203353786

yeah, if Tenet is a critical hit (as well as boxoffice) it’s in for Original. Since WB has 2 high-profile sci fi’s, this and Dune (Adapted), it’s gonna be interesting to see which one gets Picture/Director. I wish both get in but it’s a tough call for 1 studio.February 20, 2020 at 9:56 am #1203353889
Why is this thread even open? We all know what’s gonna sweepFebruary 20, 2020 at 10:32 am #1203353961
Any predictions about Will Smith in King Richard? Should be at least a big boxoffice hit. Serena, Venus, family drama, showy role, November release (wonder if they’ll catch fall festivals).
