Exactly. It’s like saying Scarlett Johansson won’t get in for Marriage Story because the Academy never cared about her in the past. If Power of the Dog gets strong reviews at its Venice premiere, Dunst is happening everywhere along with Cumberbatch and it will be a long overdue nomination like Johansson.
Exactly. I mean yes of course Dunst has gotten unlucky in that many many deserving performances of hers have gone unnoticed but that isn’t indicative of some animus towards her: quite often, people in BP films tend to get nominated! No coincidence that Johansson got her two in her first BP films after Lost in Translation and when it did it there was definitely an “overdue” narrative alongside it.
Almost all of Amy Adams’ noms are coattails. Literally everyone from Olivia Colman to Frances McDormand were there because they…got great parts in great BP films. It’s not as if there was some huge campaign for Colman or that people even knew her all that much when she won. The BP thing literally happens every year lol. And for the Andra Days of the year, I’d argue that it’s because…a narrative forms and they kinda do get lucky while many other performances get overlooked, but it’s not as if the industry just cares about Andra Day sooooo much. Dunst has been super unlucky, but mostly it’s that she hasn’t been in any BP films except Hidden Figures.May 18, 2021 at 7:08 am #1204260000

Dune will release in HBO Max and Theaters after all. Shame
I feel like big movies especially will suffer if they release in this way, awards wise. When voters don’t have the option of initially seeing the movie anywhere but cinemas for the first few weeks/ months, you’re basically assuring that a large pool of voters will have seen your film on the big screen. I imagine Dune will be good however it’s viewed, but it will be a fair bit better in theatres because the spectacle is diminished at home/ on laptops.
You also want to appear like you’re supporting cinemas, which this doesn’t really do. I’d bet a substantial number of voters will look at that unfavourably. I think even Villeneuve himself has opposed this mode of release quite passionately.May 18, 2021 at 7:51 am #1204260037
Where do we stand with Swan Song? Is Apple releasing it this year? If so, is it a serious contender? Maybe Mahershala and Glenn…May 18, 2021 at 8:14 am #1204260077
First trailer of Dear Evan Hansen.May 18, 2021 at 8:26 am #1204260120
Warner wouldn’t confirm Variety and Deadline reports. I wouldn’t be so sure about that.
They never confirmed. They are denying the Deadline report saying Dune would be theaters only. A WarnerMedia person just confirmed Dune will release at the same time in HBO Max and Theaters.May 18, 2021 at 8:29 am #1204260122
Trailer for Dear Evan Hansen is out.
FYC Emmys: "The Crown" in all categories, "I May Destroy You" in all categories, "It's a Sin" in all categories, "Small Axe" in all categories, Billie Piper ("I Hate Suzie"), Yvonne Strahovski ("Stateless") and Ruth Wilson ("His Dark Materials")May 18, 2021 at 8:39 am #1204260137
I actually liked Dear Evan Hansen’s trailer. It looks better than West Side Story’s teaser and has a much better relase date than In the Heights.May 18, 2021 at 8:59 am #1204260168
Award-wise, perhaps. However, it’s going to be a commercial player, and that makes me quite curious about its award chance. The role is one of the modern classic, can be put alongside Celie in The Color Purple or the whole Hamilton cast. The trailer really points out that fact.May 18, 2021 at 9:02 am #1204260174
Ben Platt looks like he’s wearing a mask, what is that makeup???May 18, 2021 at 9:06 am #1204260186

I would like a Mahershala Ali nomination, as I think he has the potential to be the next kind of great actor sort of thing.
A very annoying young man, who loves cinema. 🙂

I will die on the hill that they should have cast Andrew Barth Feldman as Evan. He was 16 when he took over the role full time on Broadway and got rave reviews. He also only turned 19 a couple of days ago so he would have been the perfect age. I understand why they wanted a stage actor to play Evan in the movie considering the fact that it is one of the most vocally taxing roles on Broadway (Evan sings in like 14/15 songs or something) but the obvious choice was right there and they passed it up. I’m sure Ben Platt will be great in terms of acting, but he looks too old.
