Nomadland looks too slow and small scale to win. The Academy has changed, but Moonlight / Parasite / Shape of Water were all plot-driven fast paced movies.October 20, 2020 at 1:13 pm #1203791836

I really like Folklore, but I feel it’s a tad overproduced for what it is. I can see the reason she chose to include each productional choice, but because they all serve to create one single mood, in the aggregate the song feels a bit too on the nose.
Her songs have always been bombastic, which I admire and fit perfectly for power ballads or pop rock songs. That’s why I hope to see her go Speak Now route.September 30, 2020 at 2:31 pm #1203746113

Best chance for Nomandland is to follow Roma’s path of DGA + Oscar Directing win. It’s too slow and small scale it seemsSeptember 24, 2020 at 2:16 am #1203731371
