    Iconic. The fact that this movie is an internet fave is something I would have never predicted.

    Netflix is killing it with the promotion, but it’s also impressive how much of this happened organically online. They’re just playing catch-up with all the memes.

    Just noted the FYC banners here- have they just started?

    I noticed FYC for TPOTD and TTB show up here two or three days ago. I’m keeping an eye out for DLU or Passing to see where Netflix is spending their efforts, but it’s just been those two so far.

    Passing needed to be stronger in the critics phase & DLU is looking polarising. Makes sense Netflix focussing on the other 2. Interesting that they are getting onto here at this stage- they are serious about campaigning.

    Yup that’s what I’ve noticed more than anything. Netflix is pooling its dollars into two films. I’m wondering how much they’ll do for The Lost Daughter.

    Honestly the coolest thing about TPOTD being on Netflix is that……it’s very zeitgeisty! From the Bronco Henry memes to it being no. 1 on IMDb to that stretch where Dunst was going viral for everything and now Cumberbatch telling a boy named Peter not to call him sir in two films LOL. There’s a lotta love, there’s a lotta hate, but it’s pretty darn zeitgeisty!

    I venture that it’s more zeitgeisty than West Side Story which is VERY counter-intuitive, but WSS’ box office has become a place for sympathy, for whatever that’s worth. Not much more. Seeing a lotta Mike Faist love though.

    FYC:
    Picture: Passing, The Power of the Dog, The Lost Daughter, Drive My Car
    Director: Jane Campion, Rebecca Hall
    Actor: Benedict Cumberbatch, Hidetoshi Nishijima
    Actress: Tessa Thompson, Olivia Colman, Kristen Stewart
    Supporting Actress: Kirsten Dunst, Ruth Negga, Dakota Johnson, Jessie Buckley, Martha Plimpton
    Supporting Actor: Troy Kotsur, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Jesse Plemons

    This is devastating. I know most/many of you also loved Passing so maybe you’re as sad about it as I am but I am devastated (still think Negga will make it, but the FILM overall & Thompson goddammit, wtf is wrong with critics groups).

    My dream scenario is TPOTD winning all 3 acting awards and Thompson would win (delusion, really but it would be SO!!! AMAZING!!!) TPOTD winning 2 and Negga winning would be just a tiny bit less awesome but Negga winning over Dunst is the only scenario for Dunst losing that doesn’t make too sad. Either would be deserved.

    lmao I hadn’t thought of that

    Anyway, like I’ve said before: pretty nice month for an actor if you start it with the #1 movie on Netflix and move to the #1 movie in the box office.

    After seeing it a couple of days ago I guess I feel confident in this winning BP, but I don’t find it to be as complex as most of you.

    If anyone who sees it pays attention there is not much to unfold, you can easily understand what happens and the reasons. I liked the film, it actually wasn’t as boring or complicated as people were saying.

    “This won’t win BP because it’s too weird” has been said so many times and I can’t avoid laughing. I was expecting something different from what I saw and it’s not weird by any means, this is actually a quite easy choice for Best Picture, even Parasite was weirder.

    What I will support 100% is the Benedict train, he does give such a huge and strong performance. Considering how Will Smith is still quite considered the possible winner and he does give a very good performance, there’s just such a BIG difference between what both do and the layers in both characters, Benedict is above him.

    Yeah, I too thought it was all straightforward. There weren’t really any twists, but I couldn’t believe what was happening and the characters’ decisions were surprising to me.

    I disagree about Cumberbatch and Smith being on different levels. I don’t see how Smith could’ve done any better tbh. Brilliant performances.

    Completely agree. The nuances Benedict gives to Phil, the harsh and the sweet, the pain and the rage, that’s something I still can’t get rid of, months after I saw the movie the first time.

    He’s such a fine actor, whose work I loved for years (not just Sherlock but also Patrick Melrose, The Courier, Painted with Words…), I strongly hope that his time has come.

    Totally, both were great, I was actually surprised that I liked Will as much as I did, but I think the difference is made in the characters and how the screenplays develops them. TPOTD is “deeper” in some way, and that shows in what Benedict brings on screen, but again, both marvelous and would be worthy even tho my heart is with Ben.
