    I’ve been reading most of the tweets regarding the film since the embargo was lifted.

    Here’s the possible nods based on the reaction:
    – Best Picture
    – Best Director: Spielberg
    – Best Actor: Hanks
    – Best Actress: Streep
    – Best Supporting Actor: Odenkirk
    – Best Cinematography
    – Best Original Score

    Also, I read a lot of praises regarding Odenkirk. He was considered as the standout out of all supporting players. To those who have seen the film, do you agree about it? Should we consider Bob Odenkirk as one of the Best Supporting Actor contenders now? To be honest, I can see it happening ala Jonah Hill in The Wolf of Wall Street.

    Odenkirk won’t be a major player, but he certainly deserves praise, along with the rest of the ensemble. He delivers the best performance of the supporting actors IMO as well.

    For anyone who has seen the film: Do you see this playing out like Lincoln, a contender to win with a Best Director nomination, or Bridge of Spies, a middle of the road film that got in because of the expanded nominees with no Best Director nomination?

    I really want to take out Spielberg for Gerwig so is this the kind of film that can nab Spielberg a Director nod?

    It probably can, its amongst Spielberg’s better directorial efforts for sure. But we should be wary of his chances. I’d say that of the two prospects you hypothesise, the latter seems as likely as the former. This film likely won’t compare in terms of awards success to Lincoln, as that got a bunch of nods, on top of director. That’s not to say that The Post isn’t likely to land Spielberg a nod/win, but not as likely as Lincoln, who was a frontrunner for a Director Oscar at some stage in that film’s awards run. Now, with Gerwig, Nolan, PTA, Dee Rees, my fav Guadagnino, McDonagh, Del Toro etc etc, it seems a lot tougher for Spielberg.

    The movie is made in an old timey manner but feels incredibly important for the moment which is what will be such a force for best picture.

    Obviously the parallels of the political climate are there but woman’s workplace story is perhaps even more noteworthy given what is going on.

    I put it up there with Lincoln. V

    Reception to this seems kinda in between Lincoln and Bridge of Spies – perhaps most comparable to Munich. Probably half a dozen or so Oscar noms and no wins.

    I think the difference between this and Munich, Lincoln, and Bridge of Spies is that this is more socially relevant, powerful, important, and timely. The Post’s possible winnings will be because of the things that I’ve mentioned.

    I’ve been cold on picking this movie in any major categories. I have it as a place card holder in 6th spot for BP but otherwise in no other categories. Right from the start this seemed like “Billy Lynn’s Halftime Freedom Walk” the movie everyone was picking until everyone started to see it.

    I haven’t seen it yet. I’m a big Hanks, Streep, Spielberg fan. But the reason I don’t have it winning in my predictions is that it is rare that a film wins NBR and Best Picture. As amazing as Spielberg is, only one of his films has won Best Picture.

    One thing for sure, it is definitely going to be nominated for Best Picture. His films tend to get nominated and not win. Always a bridesmaid never a bride.

    As much as I like Hanks, I still think he might get snubbed. If he wasn’t nominated for Captain Phillips, it shows Hanks is never a shoe-in even if he deserves it.

    Meryl on the hand, tends to get nominated automatically. I’m almost surprised she wasn’t nominated for Mamma Mia

    She also had Doubt that year, which did earn her a Best Actress nomination.

    Seen the movie. Keep Hanks in. Especially after winning National Board. You have to go back about 10 years to Eastwood who won for Gran Torino for the NBR winner to not even get noninated for the Oscar (although Oscar Issac did tie with Michael Keaton).

    The Best Actor race is not super competitive and The Post is the type of movie that will sweep in a Hanks nod. Him and Steep are almost a dual performance. He won’t win Best Actor but it’s enough for him to get in.

    I have The Post winning mostly due to the timely subject matter. That and there is no other front runner emerging at the moment.
