    As for Lee, I wouldn’t count on bias if other actors were deemed better and had better received movies.

    That was partly in jest (but only partly, as I do think Lee will look for an opportunity to reward his man).

    My thinking is mostly that he is playing what looks like a very physically and emotionally demanding role (think I also clocked him in old-age prosthetics in one shot of that trailer) and he’s doing it for Leos Carax. Driver in Actor is the safest bet for it even if it’s not super well received IMO – he’s building a very solid relationship with the festival too (this is his seventh Cannes premiere and his second consecutive Cannes opener).

    And if it is well-received then perhaps it takes Director or the Palme instead.

    I certianly noticed his rock solid abs and started to wonder if he was secretly filming a superhero movie.

    Well we know Carax loves a physically demanding performance! And this is a musical, and those can be pretty rigorous. From the clip of him jump-pirouetting across the stage in a bathrobe Driver does seem to have gone all-in.

    And you mean this shot?

    Yeah the trailer has ended up on so many random websites you’d never expect to see Carax appear on, basically because of this moment.

    What Amazon have done IMO by releasing it in what I am assuming will be August is given it a chance to stand out on its own. If they release this in Oct/Nov when all the big conventional awards stuff comes out it will vanish without trace. The schedule is outrageous and even some of the big movies could struggle for box office. Putting it out in August ,when the schedule is less busy, gives it space to breathe and for potentially more people to see it.  

    This is a great point I hadn’t considered. I wonder if by the end of November we’ll all have ‘awards movie’ fatigue? I can see the sheer volume of stuff coming out being pretty exhausting for awards voters.

    Maybe we are so conditioned to expect that ‘only’ fall movies will do well for awards, but this year the sheer volume of them will put paid to a fair few chances and some outsiders will sneak in. I like that idea.

    Oh yes! Ha ha that shot really pops doesn’t it?
