I’m sure you have all been noticing the ridiculous amounts of silent-majority swooning this film has been getting on the web. I challenge you to click on any recent movie-awards video on Youtube, and half the of the comments will be complaining about this movie not getting enough love, and the other half will be talking about how great Timothee Chalamet was in the film and how he deserves to win Best Actor.
Heck, just several hours ago this film took the top prize in the Gold Derby awards.
Any article I read on the web about Oscars now – it’s always CMBYN in the comments. This film is everywhere.
I know it hasn’t won any precursors, it doesn’t have Director nom and doesn’t have Editing, but rules are now out the window at the Oscars. 3 Bills and Get Out also lack one of the two of these noms and both are still considered for Best Pic.
It’s got Adapted Screenplay locked up, the male version of Jennifer Lawrence as the lead, and it’s not as divisive as the other movies.
Several years back, an LGBT film couldn’t beat Crash, but times have changed and Moonlight showed us all last year that LGBT is no longer an issue with Oscar voters.
What do you think? Could it pull off the ultimate shocker on March 4th?March 1, 2018 at 11:36 am #1202503514
If The Shape of Water or Three Billboards don’t win, it would be Get Out, or even Dunkirk or Lady Bird. I don’t see how CMBYN could win.
And was it really neccessary to create a new topic?March 1, 2018 at 11:38 am #1202503517
Yeah, the film is everywhere. I’d love to see that happening. Unfortunately, I do believe we’re just dreaming. 🙁March 1, 2018 at 11:45 am #1202503528
Then pigs would fly.March 1, 2018 at 11:52 am #1202503535
lead actor i could see happeningMarch 1, 2018 at 11:54 am #1202503538
Nope because it’s not political. Which isn’t even an insult cuz the general public knows the Oscars don’t vote on quality lol.March 1, 2018 at 11:57 am #1202503540
If it had been a bit stronger throughout the awards season, I think it would’ve been a serious contender. If it had scored more nominations and won some precursors, it might’ve had an edge over the very competitive field of original films this year.
As it stands, though, it’s probably only sixth or seventh in the BP race.March 1, 2018 at 12:33 pm #1202503560
There is nothing more that would make me more happy but it’s not happening. Maybe it will win The Independent Spirit Award Saturday night. Even for that to happen it has to beat Get Out and Lady Bird. For Timothy to win Saturday night he probably only has to beat Daniel Kaluuya . For Luca to win he has to beat Greta and Peele .

Among movies outside of the “top three” winning Best Picture, I’ve been under the inexplicable impression that CMBYN is near the top of that list. However, I only think there’s about a 10% chance that the winner is something not named Three Billboards, Get Out, or The Shape of Water.March 1, 2018 at 12:45 pm #1202503566
It will do the impossible, as it will unseat The Hurt Locker as the least seen Best Picture winner in the history of American film. And that will be the death knell for the Oscars in the ratings.March 1, 2018 at 12:56 pm #1202503572

i would think it’s the political speeches and Hollywood bullshit of #metoo and #timesup that causes the Oscars rating to plummet over what films win lolMarch 1, 2018 at 3:33 pm #1202503656
This year’s Oscar telecast will be the lowest in a long time anyway. No one has seen these movies lmao.
Still, I work in the industry, and among “those” people, this film is known as the “boring pedophile film with that talented kid”. Wouldn’t surprise me if the film went home empty handed.
Despite how mush gay lip service is played up for he media, Hollywood is still VERY homophobic.

PLEASE delete this pointless and laughable stan thread. “What if Darkest Hour wins Best Picture at the Oscars?” Ironically, I’ve been seeing a lot more support for the Churchill biopic on all these anonymous preferential ballots than CMBYN.
CMBYN was snubbed at ACE Eddie, DGA, Globe Director + Screenplay, SAG Ensemble, and couldn’t get nominated at the Oscars for either Supporting Actor, Film Editing, and Director. Its chances for Picture have been dead on arrival way before the Oscar nominations were even announced, but all the nominees should have done is prove to any sane person beyond a shadow of a doubt it was not winning Picture. Too bad there aren’t as many sane people as I would have hoped. 🙁
