Idk about its Oscar chances but I’m just thrilled to watch a movie that looks like it’s going to be a unique experience!May 25, 2021 at 8:27 am #1204270636
Amy Manson talks about working on #Spencer: “Kristen Stewart is phenomenal, just had blinkers on, was very in the moment, very present. She really pushed herself places.”
“[Spencer] is definitely nothing like we’ve seen before – it’s nothing like The Crown… It really delves into Princess Diana’s mental state. It’s just really unnerving, how great Kristen Stewart is. She’s brilliant.”

The Last Night in Soho trailer has landed.
Hmm I’m not sure what to make of this film’s chances. It does seem to be one that is more reliant on how it’s received by audiences than anything else so if it does do well box office wise, I do think it’s a possibility (especially with a studio like Focus behind it and that release date). I do think it will land some tech categories and it has a good shot at being this year’s “weird screenplay contender”. And if it gets both of those I do think it could land a Picture nomination. Not sure about anything else as of yet. I don’t have any confidence in McKenzie making it in (unless she ends up being the critical standout of the film). Taylor-Joy maybe. I guess to cut a long story short, it’s too early.
It was particularly striking how they were marketing it as some sort of a cinematic experience. We’ve seen that with a lot of these trailers for these tentpoles (i.e. Annette, The Eternals, In the Heights, West Side Story) so I wonder, even if it’s not Soho, if we’ll see the academy bite into some of these more “escapist” films after a year with an entire lineup of realism and a devastating pandemic.
I also have to say it did surprise me during the earlier parts of the trailer that Edgar Wright’s name was on this. But then the ending of the trailer lmao.
Looking forward to seeing it! Regardless of whether it’s an Oscar contender or not.

Yeah how would Last Night qualify as a thriller and not horror confuses meMay 25, 2021 at 8:31 am #1204270648
The trailer of Last Night in Soho looks like a lot of fun! Very excited about this
But the Oscars won’t touch this outside of tech categories, and even those seem too competitive right now for this to get inMay 25, 2021 at 8:35 am #1204270653

If it ends up being somewhat acclaimed and a commercial hit then I do think it could be a contender. Especially with the distributor and release date. Maybe not in acting though (although Taylor-Joy will be very visible around the time of release with Canterbury Glass and with her potential Emmy win for The Queen’s Gambit so I do think she’ll be at least in the conversation, even if it’s not for this). I can see it get screenplay + tech noms.
It also does have a stronger pedigree than some psycholo-thrillers/psycho-horrors have had. It has an Oscar nominated screenwriter, Focus Features is distributing it, Film4 produced it and its producers have 11 Oscar nominations between them.

Focus clearly playing Searchlight’s card when campaigning Black Swan. They dont promote it as Horror, but its terrifying and disturbing. The difference is Black Swan is all about character study (Obsession with Perfection driving Nina Sayers insane). Not sure on this one.
Regardless. It seems my prediction is accurate that Taylor Joy’s Eloise is sort of Tyler Durden to McKenzie’s character.
Im excited regardless whether they will get Oscars love or notMay 25, 2021 at 8:45 am #1204270677
Last Night in Soho looks reallyyyy good. BUT like what I said before if they want the movie to be a contender it is essential to receive solid reviews + BO success.May 25, 2021 at 8:47 am #1204270684
Might be comparing apples and oranges at this stage since it’s too early to tell from so little, but as mostly period psychological thriller/horror movies, Don’t Worry Darling could potentially be more accessible for the Oscars than Last Night in Soho. It depends on the social commentary and themes in both films, but the trailer for Soho looks a lot more traditionally horror than Black Swan/Get Out/PYW did, which could potentially make it harder to break out of the genre bias. It’s too early to tell what the reception or acclaim will be like for either film though.May 25, 2021 at 8:48 am #1204270686
Also, this is giving some serious Mulholland Drive vibes to me.May 25, 2021 at 8:50 am #1204270695
Last Night in SoHo’s first poster: https://mobile.twitter.com/DiscussingFilm/status/1397207756604682246 I really like the trailer, but I do wonder whether the horror elements might not make it a big contender. Thomasin said in a recent interview with Empire magazine that there are a lot of twists in the film.May 25, 2021 at 8:53 am #1204270699
