    Good to see Plemons at the press conference today. Very impressive group performing before the press- they are going to be a great asset for TPOTD campaign.

    Ari Wegner has been showing up to every press performance. It seems rare for cinematographers to come along in these conferences( but Wegner has been showing up everywhere. As she should considering how masterful the cinematography in TPOTD is. I hope she builds up enough of a narrative and attention to her craft that gives her the Oscar win.

    I really hope this gets the SAG ensemble award because everyone was incredible. I just want there to be some recognition for all the performances. They worked so beautifully with each other. I’m assuming Belfast or King Richard(?) are the top contenders currently? I won’t be able to see either films until January, so it’s pretty hard to make an informed opinion.

    Somehow, it turned from a 2-horse race (Belfast & TPOTD) to a 3-horse race (Belfast, TPOTD, King Richard), but now of course people are reducing it to Belfast & King Richard. It’s a very strange thing. It’s a weird pundit artifact of this moment in time in the awards season, and it truly is weird because it was seen by the all the biggest pundits ages ago at Telluride…

    Things shift so fast… I’m just amused by the obvious and ludicrous desire pundits have to assume a position of power, as always. They’re not critics, and they HATE that lol.

    There seems to be a big King Richard push. Pundits are players not unbiased commentators

    Given every winner except Green Book in the preferential era had a MC above 86, it seems insane that this year will be between two films in the 70s. Bizarre

    I don’t see much bizarre at all about a 3-way BP race (at the moment) among films with (non-“final”) RTs of 88, 89 and 92, respectively. The obsession with the MC “threshold” (except Green Book!) seems a bit…reductive at times. Especially when none of these films’ RT or MC scores are yet finalized. (Let the films hit theatrical release first, at least, before you start the tally game. 🙏)

    The point was more about a slew of pundits who are pushing a Belfast vs. King Richard race, where TPOTD isn’t even a frontrunner lol. A 3-way race is plausible yeah.

    You’re right that we should wait for release in general, though I honestly don’t like RT scores: they literally take every blogger, so it’s very much critics+pundits, that’s why they oscillate so wildly. But broadly: MCs don’t oscillate that wildly for festival films. Like Spencer going from early 80s to late 70s…..that’s ordinary, it’s not some wild shift.

    TPOTD might go to mid-to-late 80s at the worst, maybe it goes up, who knows, Belfast might hit early 80s but 86? Big moves for festival films just don’t often happen, mostly because the biggest publications’ critics just hold their reviews from the festivals. Richard Brody at the New Yorker e.g. hasn’t reviewed TPOTD even though he covered NYFF. It’s common practice, but usually by the time of release, many critics…have tweeted about it lol.

    Is it reductive? Slightly. But is it predictive? Yes. Like many powerful stats, I can’t explain it all, but there’s a lot of factors there? But critics are more influential/reflective than people give them credit for—and those scores are very indicative of the wave of critics groups that follow. I don’t think waving it away helps at all.

    agree, Wegner is very prominent at the moment as she should be. Becoming the first female Cinematography winner is a hell of a narrative

    If Ari wins I hope she mentions Halyna Hutchins, the cinematographer who died after Alec Baldwin shot a prop gun on ‘Rust’ movie set. It would be such a nice tribute especially coming from another female cinematographer.

    Wagner’s prominence shows just how seriously Netflix is taking the campaign. I expect she will get a pretty big push from them.
