As more information has come out on the three movies, and with the latest rumor about the narrations for House of Gucci, I feel most confidant about saying Driver gets in for Gucci over Last Duel / Annette.May 6, 2021 at 3:45 pm #1204245259
I don’t think Next Goal Wins is going to come out this year. There have been zero updates on it since it wrapped, and Disney already has a full slate for the fall. I think Dune will be good but I don’t buy it as a BP contender.
At this point I dont buy Next Goal Wins as something that would be Oscar-Competitive, at all. Searchlight already have French Dispatch and Nightmare Alley for this year and they have new Saoirse Ronan movie and Perfect for next year awards season (its reportedly began production in early 2022 so there are possibilities where Perfect would be for 2024 awards season).
And yeah, of course. Armie HammerMay 6, 2021 at 4:09 pm #1204245265
If Annette is too weird for the Academy but Driver pull off a fantastic performance, I can see them voting for him in House of Gucci or The Last Duel.
Alicia Vikander benefitted a lot from Ex-Machina, in which she got GG and BAFTA nominations. Florence Pugh benefitted from Midsommar to get her nom for Little Women.
About Next Goal Wins, Armie Hammer apparently has just a small cameo in the movie.May 6, 2021 at 5:39 pm #1204245331

Apparently, it will include front to cam style / breaking the fourth wall narration ala Wolf of Wall Street.
This is bad, Scorsese and McKay are obviously terrific in doing it, but it doesn’t absolutely fit with Ridley Scott’s more classical style and his general by the numbers approach in filmmaking.May 7, 2021 at 3:36 am #1204245639
The breaking the fourth wall narration for House of Gucci-if it turns out to be true-could backfire. Like someone else already said, it doesn’t fit with Scott’s filmmaking style. I also can’t imagine members of the Gucci family-specifically Alessandra and Allegra-being happy with it if it actually happens in the film.May 7, 2021 at 5:23 am #1204245685

Without spoiling the plot I actually think this could work really well for the story being told. This kind of thing can always backfire, but if they use it as a device to reveal just how unreliable a narrator Patrizia is, it could be great.
I’m not sure why it would be particularly upsetting to Alessandra and Allegra, at least any more than the fact the movie exists at all, as I sincerely doubt it will be used as a way of making Patrizia sympathetic (given what the production has said about her).
The person who claims to have read the script apparently also said the movie is ‘mostly about Maurizio’ so I doubt it means Patrizia gets more prominence than him.
