I think it has been dated for November 26th, good prospects for the movie
I believe it’s December 22 no?

Hmm… the guy that said he read the script from Coen’s The Tragedy of Macbeth just said stuff like “Frances has a minimal role” and “Denzel will win” and not much about the script itself… no spoilers are needed (well…) but there’s nothing wrong with saying if the dialogue has been updated or not, or if it’s set during the Jacobean Era or modern times like the latest trend in modern theatre.
Also someone said “Red White and Water” is reshooting… I can’t find this ANYWHERE and this is some kind of news that just pops up on IndieWire or Variety because there’s nothing wrong with giving this news, it happens all the time…
I don’t know, I’m not saying people are LYING but I’m seeing people go and put Denzel on their predictions and putting down “Red White and Water” and it’s all based on stuff that can’t even be considered insider information.April 22, 2021 at 8:18 pm #1204216159
I hope The Card Counter will be a contender. Paul Schrader is one of the most underrated directors working today. I can see it being selected in competition in Cannes and winning big with Spike Lee being the President of the jury and good friend with Schrader.
Oscar Isaac is also overdue for a nomination.April 22, 2021 at 8:34 pm #1204216213
The vague stories about those reshoots have been circulating since last year.
And I would never count on Paul schrader. First reformed was a fluke. Everything else he’s done for decades has been trash.April 22, 2021 at 9:09 pm #1204216335

It was not a fluke, it was pure talent. He sure directed trashy movies but he also directed several gems such as Light Sleeper, Mishima or Blue Collar.
For The Card Counter, Martin Scorsese helped him finish the film. Great article here : https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/movies/story/2020-09-11/covid-19-moviemaking-paul-schrader-the-card-counter-oscar-isaacApril 22, 2021 at 10:40 pm #1204216464
Hence why I also mentioned the possibility of the three political songs nominated this year splitting with each other on Sunday…
Sure, but I don’t think we can use something that hasn’t happened yet as a reason why musicals may split next year either. I’m not saying it’s not impossible, I’m just saying that IMO the idea that songs from musicals could split for no reason other than they’re all songs from musicals doesn’t make sense to me.April 23, 2021 at 4:52 am #1204216736
Disney will celebrate moviegoing during the Oscars this Sunday with exclusive trailers and talent: https://deadline.com/2021/04/disney-oscars-moviegoing-celebration-west-side-story-summer-of-soul-trailers-1234742010/
There’s a brief mention at the end of possible first looks at Eternals, Nightmare Alley, The Last Duel, and Jungle Cruise.April 23, 2021 at 8:23 am #1204217033
Watched In The Heights, maybe it’s because I am not a musical person but I didn’t love it. It was cute though, and enjoyable but I don’t see it being much of an oscar player?! Best chance for an above the line nom is Olga Merediz imo, I quite liked Anthony Ramos but a GG nom feels like the ceiling for him.April 23, 2021 at 8:44 am #1204217051
In the Heights
Cons: Too commercial, early release date
The Power of the Dog
Cons: Netflix film, maybe too “arty”
Don’t Look Up
Cons: Netflix, too much of a comedy
House of Gucci
Cons: A movie has to tackle a social issue to win now and this seems like a movie that will get some nominations in acting and some techs but no wins.
Cons: Great trailer but definitely too “arty” for wide audiences
The French Dispatch
Cons: Early release date (will it go to TIFF?) and it’s a problem if it leans too much into the anthology format
Cons: It’d be better if that release date was like two weeks later but I think a bigger problem is that it may not be accessible for wide audiences
The Tragedy of Macbeth
Cons: Films like these do not win anymore and maybe Scott Rudin previously being attached to this might hinder it, idk?
West Side Story
Cons: It has to really distinguish itself from In the Heights and its late release date is problematic
Cons: They already gave it to del Toro recently
Cons: Too genre and it has to be Mad Max: Fury Road-level acclaimed to even be a Best Picture winner conversation
Don’t Worry Darling
Cons: If it leans too much into horror, that’ll be a problem for its chances and, again, since its a genre film it has to be Get Out-level accessible and critically-acclaimed.
Last Night in Soho
Cons: Again too genre same criteria applies.
Cons: Biopics like this don’t really win Best Picture even though Butler seems destined for a nomination.
