    I think at the very least, he could see some nominations in adaptation.

    I wonder if he does though because this is an August Wilson play and Wilson adapted the screenplay of Fences and lost (it was a posthumous nom) whilst he hasn’t adapted this one. It will look bad if they give someone else an award for adapting a Wilson play after his death but not Wilson for adapting his own play of which he received a posthumous nom for.

    It doesn’t matter cause Nomadland’s going to win Best Adapted Screenplay. Every TIFF winner for the last 8 years has won either Screenplay or Acting, so if McDormand doesn’t win Nomadland has to win Adapted Screenplay. It also needs a Screenplay win to win Picture.

    I’m not surprised. It’ll be interesting though, as no doubt, the performance is there. But a win in lead I think, will be more of a challenge. Supporting would be a clean sweep. I wonder if they wanna focus one of the other gentleman in supporting, to capitalize on nominations?

    I don’t think any voter will think this way

    And I’m not saying voters will think this way. It would just be interesting if he does win because it would be kind of harsh to August Wilson that when he received a posthumous nod for writing the adaptation of Fences they didn’t award him but then they award someone else for adapting one of his plays.

    I’m still predicting it for a nomination lol.

    I genuinely don’t think voters think even half this far. Definitely not.

    Have the two threads been merged? Is this the one we’re using now?

    I didn’t understand why someone else would start a new one in the first place?

    Trailer’s excellent. Looks like they beefed up the play a smidge while still being true to the original. Looking forward to this one.

    Only thing I wasn’t sold on was the cinematography— looks a little TV-quality-ish. Rest looks great.

    Yeah I was confused about that. But didn’t wanna say anything just because I started the original. Lbvs

    TRT for the movie is 93 minutes. Shorter and to the point.

    This film looks… aggressively mediocre. Boseman seems to be Supporting based on the trailer alone.
