I’m so perplexed why so many pepole think Da 5 Bloods has a serious shot at best picture. I feel alot of people(granted it may just the people ) find it overall good but still extremely a mixed bag , and over all one Spike Lee’s weaker movies.Not many people are talking about this movie anymore, and feel it keeps on losing it’s awards momentum every month.
So why is it at number 10? As the only nomination I can see it getting is Best actor and maybe Score.
Personally I think number 10 will be Soul, as Pete Doctor is extremely high chance at screenplay nom as every film he’s written has been nominated for best original screenplay witch would increases it’s chances at a Picture nomination . And with how cryptic Disney is being with film and demanding it be in theaters I feeling its something spacial. Plus Imagine This new wave of young academy voters are more open to nominating a animated film for best picture, as iv’e noticed in general Millennials onward have more respect for the art form then older ones.
However maybe I’m missing something, can someone explain?October 1, 2020 at 4:25 pm #1203750150
Because it has 92 on RT and 82 on Metacritic.
It’s not exactly a bad start to snag a BP nomination.October 1, 2020 at 4:41 pm #1203750174
And his previous film was a hit in the awards circuit, and he has that overdue buzz despite his screenplay win.October 1, 2020 at 5:38 pm #1203750280
Well Dune is 6th right now, even though everyone knows it’s going to bomb. I wouldn’t take the prediction center too seriously.

Yeah, I’m not sure why some people are so high on this. The audience scores aren’t good and it didn’t even make a big splash back when it debuted, despite it coming at the perfect time when the BLM movement was at its peak. Netflix will have other films they will be prioritize over this (Mank, Chicago 7, Hillbilly, Ma Rainey). Lindo will be the aspect of the film critics revive – they’ll have other films they’re more passionate and are more critically acclaimed.
Also, it’s not as though Lee is an Oscars darling. BlacKkKlansman was the first film of his they recognized in 20 years. I doubt they start embracing every single one of his films after that.October 1, 2020 at 7:45 pm #1203750617
It’s because none of the other contenders are out, Da 5 Bloods is a safe pick if you don’t know what to choose. I expect it to start dropping as new films release.October 1, 2020 at 11:31 pm #1203751679

It would be a REALLY bad look if the Oscars just completely ignored Da 5 Bloods after embracing BlacKkKlansman; we’re in an era where embracing a black-made movie no longer gives the Oscars an excuse to ignore other black-made movies.October 1, 2020 at 11:33 pm #1203751683
I have a feeling some people just desperately want Da 5 Bloods to be left out of the Oscar race for some reason.October 2, 2020 at 3:20 am #1203751984
Can’t believe are actually bothered by others’ predictions… Like, let people predict what they want?? If you don’t agree you don’t need to say things like “WHAT are people THINKING predicting THIS????”

It really wouldn’t be a bad look though lmao. There’s plenty of other black-made movies they can recognize and reward. Not every black-made movie is going to be embraced by the Academy every year.October 2, 2020 at 6:30 am #1203752329

I loved the film, and I’ve realised it doesn’t have a chance at Best Picture. It is controversial, it came out in June and Netflix has other priorities.October 2, 2020 at 7:20 am #1203752471
The obsession with da 5 bloods flopping on these forums is so random. Why make a thread about it when you could have easily just posted this in the 2021 oscars thread?October 2, 2020 at 8:57 am #1203752722
Well, here’s hoping it does make the lineup. Sorta stomps all over most of the other “contenders” this season lol.October 2, 2020 at 9:57 am #1203752910
This will most likely be the best netflix film this year and the constant undersell of it here is ridiculous
