    Those fireplace scenes saved the final quarter which really dragged for me. And the ending itself was almost as brilliant as something from Mulholland Dr…

    Yeah, once the feud “ended” there wasn’t much shown, but that ending sure packed a punch with the power dynamic.

    I saw this the other day and it was excellent. Going in I had heard a lot of praise for the acting and script, but the visuals also blew me away, completely. The lighting was absolutely fantastic, the cinematography was stunning, and the production design was perfect. I wish this were one of those movies that’d sweep, but I guess it won’t.

    The final quarter did definitely drag. It did not feel like a two-hour movie, it felt more like 2 1/2. The ending was brilliant.

    I am predicting The Favourite will likely win Oscars for Best Original Screenplay and Best Costume Design. It’s a frontrunner for Best Production Design but my gut intuition tells me Black Panther is going to win that one, but it’s super close. I would prefer Olivia Colman to Glenn Close but am fine with either one of the winning. The movie was wonderful and visually stunning. 10 Oscar nominations in 9 categories! Glad that Yorgos Lanthimos got a nomination after being left out at DGA!

    BAFTA might choose it for Best Film but I am thinking Roma could win that prize while BAFTA will win Best British Film. I see Olivia winning there and Rachel having a strong chance at Supporting Actress. It will win more awards there than at the Oscars. I think BAFTA’s Best Picture is a straight one vote per category thing rather than preferential ballot.

    Just watched it tonight again and lol these last few responses killed me, including that troll Bowie’s old one.

    Side note: I need all the trailers to be edited to where it says: Academy Award-winner Olivia Colman.

    (I’m so bored w this year that I’m going back and reliving the golden days)

    Thanks for reminding me of my correct prediction – which I stuck with all season, by the way.

    Talking of Ruth Carter, she could win back-to-back as those costumes in Dolemite Is My Name were dazzling almost to the point of distraction.

    The Favorite’s only questionable role is the one played by E Stone, Abigail. There’s very little recorded about her outside of her book keeping and her proximity to Anne, and no evidence that she had that kind of devious personality. So her arc is plausible, but Stone is free to interpret her in her own way and doesn’t have the same pressure to depict that character true to life.

    By contrast we have scads more documentation about Rachel Weisz’s Duchess, including the hundreds of letters she and Anne wrote to each other, and as usual, she nailed her personality.
    It’s the ONLY time I’ve watched two actors, but especially Colman, get it entirely right.
    So mainly because of this “The Favorite” is in my top 2 last year.

    And congratulations Eddy. Even Tom had Glenn as the winner.

    Oh no I was referring to my prediction of Black Panther winning over The Favourite in Costume Design. Dennis pulled my quote from last September, though I thought Ruth would win back in March 2018 as soon as I saw Black Panther. Unfortunately I didn’t have the courage to predict Olivia winning; though I anticipated that it could happen, I just didn’t think that it would. I partly blame that dude Jazzy for constantly pooh-poohing Olivia’s chances and getting into my head, though that’s shirking responsibility a bit. He fell off the face of the earth after Glenn lost lololol.
