    I wish thinking about how Bohemian Rhapsody dominated this year’s awards seasons. Made me think that if The Greatest Showman was released at the first week of December instead of Christmas (when it initially underperformed box office wise) would’ve had more time to build.

    It probably would’ve would win the GG C/M, been a more serious threat to Coco for Song and would’ve likely got nominated for the folllwing at Oscar

    • Picture
    • Actor (Jackman would’ve the obvious last night Franco replacement instead of Washington)
    • Film Editing
    • Costume Design
    • Sound Editing
    • Sound Mixing

    Would any other have better chances if they had a different release date?

    This is most likely my inner-J Law stan talking, but I think if mother! had been released in this really weak year (not to mention the lack of actual concern for controversies amongst the branches), it would’ve made a splash. Or, if it had been released near December in 2017 with a hold on the reviews like Vice, it would’ve had major nominations across the board.

    ASIB would’ve done way better if it had been released on say Thanksgiving Day or December, that way the fatigue wouldn’t have set in as bad.

    What’s Love Got to Do With It and Angela Bassett would’ve won big if it had been released the next year.

    I think If Beale Street Could Talk might have been nominated if it had been released earlier, to allow for people to see it and build momentum leading into Award Season. On the other hand, First Man might have done better if it was released later, and not have a chance to be snubbed for poor box office performance.

    Also, I think The Greatest Showman might have still not been nominated thanks to the fact that P.T. Barnum was such a controversial character, and the film skims over this in the portrayal of his character.

    Also, if Incredibles 2 and Spider-verse been reversed in terms of release date, that might have shifted the votes a little. Incredibles 2 might have gotten votes for being Pixar and having a strong female character

    This year:

    • First Man, it was overshadowed by A Star is Born
    • Emily Blunt, A Quiet Place
    • Michael B. Jordan, Black Panther

    That is the truth.

    No exceptions.

    The Greatest Showman was never getting BP or BA noms.

    The Greatest Showman is so underrated 🙁

    In my opinion, it could have done so well during awards season if Jackman hadn’t insisted on the P.T. Barnum angle. The story in the film is not even accurate lol but the movie itself, the music, and the performances are so good it’s a real shame

    Zodiac in 2007. Released in March. Zero nominations… This year Charlize Theron for Tully and Collette.

    A Most Violent Year won the National Board of Review award in 2014 over major Oscar contenders Birdman, Boyhood, American Sniper and The Imitation Game. Which meant it was released at just the right time. It just didn’t catch any momentum after that.
