Don’t forget The Card Counter.
As with everything this year, I wonder how the destruction of the HFPA will affect this films chance. There’s been so much about how they’ve refused to watch Black led films & shows, and missing the Globe is what slowed down / ended Haddish’s Oscar momentum for Girls Trip.
Curious to see if Focus will lean into that angle here.

Blue Bayou is one of their films as well.
I’m sceptical. This film is coming out in June so unless it receives strong critical or audience buzz I feel like it will get overshadowed.

I actually think the Blonde being a Netflix film really hurts Ana de Armas chances of winning. Biopics are those type of films that play best in theaters since they are typically crowdpleasers and make a lot of money. The Theory of Everything, The Darkest Hour, and even The Iron Lady made more than $100 million. Biopics just draw the general public in to pay to see them in theaters by an overwhelming margin. These type of films attract the older bunch of the Academy the most and they are still very much against streaming services over theatrical run films. All of those biopics were by the numbers too that the older Academy ate.. And we all know about Blonde’s experimental features based on early reactions from the screenplay.
Quite honestly, I only see JHud as a real biopic contender. Sure, many of you are super down on her about her acting, and I do agree but she’s great at emoting in musicals and when singing (basically a lot like Gaga that way—I think Gaga’s great when she’s singing, outside of it…eh). Plus Aretha is not a figure who has been done A LOT like Diana or Marilyn have, so despite the fact that I really de Armas and Kristen Stewart, they kinda have to be better even than Natalie Portman in Jackie. Portman had the luxury of swooping in with a “fresh new take” on a character that people weren’t used to seeing all that much. Whether or not JHud will be totally deserving remains to be seen obviously, I just think she has an easier path :/
But if I’m wrong…hmmm, I don’t know. On the one hand Stewart has the better director, on the other hand from the info we have so far, Blonde sounds like it could maybe just the right amount of “out there”.May 11, 2021 at 11:03 pm #1204251864

Blonde has been described by the director as ‘extremely experimental’ and ‘an avalanche of images and events’ that contains almost no dialogue. It’s more likely than not to be too far out there. I think its best case scenario is de Armas as a sole nominee.May 11, 2021 at 11:44 pm #1204251880
When do trailers of main Sept/Oct/Nov contenders usually start to come out?May 12, 2021 at 12:18 am #1204251897
As far as I know Blonde is not a biopic. It’s a fictional take on Marilyn Monroe’s life.May 12, 2021 at 1:42 am #1204251949
which films will be at Cannes next to TFD, Annette and Benedetta?May 12, 2021 at 3:44 am #1204251962
I thought Blonde was going to be a traditional biopic when I first read about Ana getting cast, but I later found out it’s a fictionalized take on Monroe’s life. It’s based on a book by Joyce Carol Oates.May 12, 2021 at 4:27 am #1204252008
Do trailers for films coming out in October and November get released in July and August?May 12, 2021 at 6:36 am #1204252111
