    I know… this is one of the unpopular opinion. And it’s almost impossible for a horror movie (especially this kind of horror) to garner some nominations. But I think that Midsommar deserved to be nominated in some categories at the next year Oscar.

    Possibilities :

    Cinematography

    Production Design

    Original Score

    Costume Design

    Sound Mixing

    Editing

    Long Shots :

    Picture

    Director

    Actress

    Screenplay

     

    Sometimes it’s hard to predict the Oscars right? Remember the surprise nod for Marina de Tavira for Roma?

    I hope they do because it’s quite a technical achievement regardless of what you think of the film and Florence Pugh is mesmerizing and totally worthy of a nom.  I don’t see it making it into picture, screenplay, or director, but we should see it nominated in the technical categories and a nod to Pugh.

    Nope. It doesn’t have a chance.

    If they didn’t nominate Collette last year why would they suddenly nominate Pugh (even though she does deserve it)? I agree that it might receive 2-3 nominations below the line though. It was technically superior to Hereditary.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
    Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)

    It is an undeniable technical achievement, but it’ll be lucky if it even picks up one nomination.

    My personal Top 5 of 2019 so far:
    1) Parasite 2) The Farewell 3) Once Upon a Time in Hollywood 4) Joker 5) Jojo Rabbit

    I’m not sure what you’re all smoking… “undeniable technical achievement?”

    I’ll deny! The craft in this film was garbage!

    Maybe my use of the word “undeniable” was a little strong. People deny facts every day so maybe the word has lost its usefulness- probably even more useless given we’re talking subjectively about art.

    I’ll challenge you though- what about the craft did you think was garbage? Personally, I thought the cinematography was breathtaking. I think the wealth of public/critical opinion would agree with me in that the movie was gorgeous (for whatever that’s worth to it’s undeniability). Outside of that, I think Aster’s direction, the haunting score (especially in the dancing scene), and deliberate (yet shocking) editing was all evidence of strong craft.

    Objectively speaking, Pugh should be a lock for a nom, as well as Aster for Director. But realistically, no nominations, except maybe a tech nom or two, are going to come about.

    “No user starts this shady” - someone culturally relevant.

    At the very least, if they don’t nominate it for anything else, they should nominate it for Best Cinematography.

    It will get the same treatment as Hereditary… Nothing

    Darlings, not at all. Nor they should. Flowerence Pugh is probably the only nod-worthy thing about this. The visuals were also great, to be honest. It’s too repulsive for voters. So no, it isn’t getting nominated.

    I was your Prime Minister once.

    I feel like this should be a major frontrunner for Cinematography and the design awards and Pugh should really be in the award conversation right now, but the film is, unfortunately, way too divisive.

    If the Oscars can’t nominate Toni Collette, I’m not optimistic for Midsommar‘s Oscar chances in any category.
