    https://mobile.twitter.com/DiscussingFilm/status/1387391290258694144 Trailer for Luca Assuming Disney will exhibit it in a random small theater just to make it eligible, I think it has a good shot at a Best Picture nomination, with 10 slots.

    I hope everyone enjoys my biopic 🙂

    Trailer for Luca

    Assuming Disney will exhibit it in a random small theater just to make it eligible, I think it has a good shot at a Best Picture nomination, with 10 slots.

    If “Soul” couldn’t make the Best Picture lineup in a much less competitive year, I don’t see it happening for “Luca.” However, there doesn’t seem to be much on the release calendar for 2021 for animated films and most of the remaining animated films are sequels, so that could fare well for “Luca” and the already-released “Raya and the Last Dragon,” though I’m sure we will get more news as the year progresses (Netflix just picked up an animated movie musical “Vivo” starring Lin-Manuel Miranda from Sony).

    I can’t be the only one who feels like everyone is overlooking the musicals in their predictions, particularly in the acting categories.
    I haven’t seen anyone put Ben Platt on any of their potential lists for Dear Evan Hansen, despite the fact that he gave one of the best and most acclaimed performances on stage in the past 10 years with that role, not to mention winning the tony.
    Also, Olga Merediz is reprising her tony-nominated role in In the Heights, and virtually all of the early reviews have pinned her as a standout. Anthony Ramos has also been picking up buzz, and with the emotional intensity of this musical at points, I wouldn’t say a nom for him is unlikely by any means.
    For West Side Story, I understand the hesitancy to put it into your predictions because it’s a remake and because of all of the Ansel controversy, but I think that this musical has some extremely strong acting contenders. Ariana Debose is playing Anita, who Rita Moreno had previously won the academy award for. Although the Prom was mediocre, she was definitely a standout, and she is also a former Tony nominee. David Alvarez is playing Bernardo, another role that won an Oscar. He hasn’t been active much in the past few years prior to West Side Story, but he won a Tony for best lead actor in a musical when he was only 13 years old, as one of the co-leads in Billy Elliot. Rachel Zegler is also poised to be a massive breakout star from the movie and judging from videos of her playoff María on stage, she definitely is one to look out for.

    Being a star on stage doesn’t always translate to film. I found Ben platt nearly unwatchable in The Politician. Plus, he looks much older than he is, so him playing a teenager in a movie will be way more glaring than it is on stage.
