    Entertainment Weekly gave it a good review and singled out Akwafina. (It was the issue two or three weeks ago)

    Really excited to see this movie. The trailer looked great, and I love the idea behind the plot.

    Obviously a small sample size but the 100% RT, 100% audience, and 90 MC it has right now makes me really happy. Hope this is as great as people say.

    I can’t see it until next weekend; does anyone know if it’s more of a drama or a comedy? Basically, where do you think it’ll compete at the Globes?

    Though it has a great balance of Drama and Comedy, I’m guessing the HFPA will put it Comedy.

    Darlings, it seems like Awkwardfina’s vagina is going to be in contention for the dildo.

    LENA HEADEY hasn't got an Emmy for Game of Thrones????? Emmys you need to win her right now!!
    If Lena Headey doesn't win the Emmy, I'm leaving GoldDerby forever.

    I think comedy. There is no clear winner in comedy actress, I think she could easily win that category.  Drama actress is more competitive and I dont she would even be nominated in that category let alone a win.

    I loved this so incredibly much. Only my second 10/10 of the year (first was Booksmart). So touching and heartwrenching and heartwarming and lovely all at the same time.

    Here are my predictions for its award season trajectory. It could really lean into the drama or comedy categories, but I see it going comedy because it’ll have a much better chance at nods there. I’m probably overestimating Awkwafina, but if she wins the comedy Globe (and I very much think she could), that could springboard her very far. Unsure about its budget, but I’ll include it in Independent Spirit Awards anyway. I love Lulu Wang’s direction, but I doubt it’s flashy enough to get her a nod, and awards bodies will likely feel comfortable enough giving her the screenplay nominations. My Best Picture prediction is likely too bold, but the Oscars seem to like having a more family-friendly nominee every other year or so, and if they vote with anything, they vote with by what they’re feeling, and this one sure makes you feel a lot.

    I thought this was incredible from top to bottom.  I see this being a big breakout hit if A24 campaigns properly.

    I think it has a chance at getting nominated for:

    Best Picture

    Best Lead Actress: Awkwafina

    Best Supporting Actress: Zhao Shuzhen

    Best Screenplay

    A seriously great film.

    Saw it again today. It’s even better than I remembered. And it’s so FUNNY! Lock up Awkwafina and screenplay with huge potential for more. Getting Lady Bird vibes.
