    Considering that, for the past few years, the Best Picture category at the Oscars got into a two-picture race as close as it got to the ceremony, I have a strong feeling it will happen again in 2021. And I really think it’s going to be between “Dune” and “Mank”.

    Of course, we haven’t seen much abouth either of them, and I’m not considering the independent underdog factor that could come up with another picture (both of them wil be huge). But there’s great momentum for them.

    First of all, both Fincher and Villeneuve are due to get an Oscar. “Mank” will touch heavily on nostalgia, it will have the Netflix campaign focus, and it might come with a “Kane only got one Oscar!!” narrative. However, “Dune” is being anticipated everywhere we look and it’s already  loved by a lot of people in the industry.

    I think it will be a great race to follow. Any thoughts on that?

    Worked for Judy so it might work again this year.

    I’m not convinced Dune will be an Oscar contender at all outside of technicals.  I hope it is, but I’m not sure if it will be.

    I think Mank will definitely be a major contender but I’m still not convinced about Dune. Maybe I’m underestimating it, but I’m fairly certain it’s not gonna be one of the top two contenders.

    Let’s Go Bucks

    No, I’m guessing Mank vs The French Dispatch.

    Yep, that’s probably the race.

    Yeah that’s what I thought too. Mank vs The French Dispatch for sure.

    Right now I’m thinking Mank vs The Trial of the Chicago 7. But since Marriage Story and The Irishman, two Netflix films, were considered the frontrunners at some point, I’m sure my opinion will change.

    Probably “Mank” if it ends up being any good. They know how much they owe Fincher, and this is prime Oscar bait.

    Yep! Like when BlacKkKlansman was the sure frontrunner. The one thing I’m sure is that those opinions will change.

    I like its odds for a picture nomination effectively riding on half a dozen tech noms and Villeneuve for director, but at the minute if we’re talking about two films ‘leading’ the BP race I’d guess on Mank and Nomadland.
