It’s going to be a battle between Scorsese and Parker.February 29, 2016 at 4:16 pm #218657
The thing is I don’t find very much differences between 12 years a slave and The Birth of a Nation. Basically the same topic. I’m going to go out on a limb and predict Jeff Nichols for Loving, because he’s been in the radar for some years (Take Shelter, Mud…) and looks good for an indie filmmaker with a serious issue (racism) but treated in a romantic/sensitive/accesible way which will probably appeal to a bigger % of members. Also, “Midnight Special” will get him good ink too and will help.March 2, 2016 at 3:40 am #218658
Alejandro G. Iñarritu again, or maybe Alfonso Cuaron
None of them have movies this year.March 2, 2016 at 11:01 am #218659
Something tells me Nate Parker.March 2, 2016 at 11:32 am #218660
Until the big techsterpiece emerges, I’ll go with Parker.March 2, 2016 at 4:27 pm #218661
I’m sure that Harvey Weinstein will do with Nate Parker what he did with Kathryn Bigelow in 2012-2013.March 5, 2016 at 12:36 pm #218662
Weinstein’s 2016 contenders are Garth Davis (Lion) and John Lee Hancock (The Founder). Both movies will be released in Thanksgiving.
So, time to predict them? Although Harvey is better with actors (Specially actresses), I remember Weinstein got noms for…
Morten Tyldum, The Imitation Game (2014)
David O. Russell, Silver Linings Playbook (2012)
Michel Hazanavicius, The Artist (2011) WINNER
Tom Hooper, The King’s Speech (2010) WINNER
Quentin Tarantino, Inglorious Basterds (2009)
Stephen Daldry, The Reader (2008)March 5, 2016 at 12:44 pm #218663
On paper, Scorsese seems obvious as he’d be the 2nd most nominated ever and it’s been a decade since his overdue 1st win.March 5, 2016 at 8:53 pm #218664
I hope Scorsese gets it. If Inarritu can win 4 Oscar, Scorsese surely deserves more than 1 Oscar. But in recent years the best director usually goes to the movie with great technical achievement, so I am not too sure about his chance.March 5, 2016 at 11:52 pm #218665
Hazanivicius could win one over Scorsese’s 3D, full of VFX directed film in 2011, so I don’t see the reason for the technical director to get a guarantee for nomination or even a win. If Silence is superior enough, I can see Scorsese win his overdue second oscarMarch 6, 2016 at 4:15 am #218666

Well, let’s wait and see Silence first, right?
