I think Hopkins winning chances are going to be hurted by the no attending thing we saw this year.
Your statement reminds me of something that was said in the 1943 episode of the And the Runner Up is podcast, in which either Kevin Jacobsen and Samantha Ellis mentioned that voters didn’t see The Song of Bernadette which is why it lost to Casablanca.September 29, 2020 at 2:11 pm #1203742864
They really need to reduce the slots for Best Picture. I really hate when awards extend their slots, you’re allowing mediocrity to get nominated.
They don’t HAVE to nominate mediocrity. There’s more than enough quality to justify extended slots. It’s not the slots that’s the problem, it’s the voters who indulge in middlebrow nonsense like The Blind Side. We need more voters with good taste.September 28, 2020 at 9:39 pm #1203740496
When did we all decide that Rotten Tomatoes is irrelevant and that Metacritic is religion?September 28, 2020 at 9:30 pm #1203740475
For the record, Chicago 7 has a 92 percent on Rotten Tomtoes.September 28, 2020 at 4:01 pm #1203740000
If there’s no buzz for Da 5 Bloods, why are experts still talking about it? I’m beginning to think people are actively rooting for it to fail.September 28, 2020 at 1:14 pm #1203739620
If Netflix is willing to campaign Lindo in Lead, I have faith they’ll make a good campaign for Da 5 Bloods.September 27, 2020 at 8:48 pm #1203738505
I’ve just re-watched DA 5 BLOODS, just to state if I still keep it in my predictions… It felt as good as the first time I watched it and the social commentary elevates it. Considering Netflix will campaign for Lindo as they have stated previously, I believe they will also run a Best Picture campaign. So… I’m predicting nods for # Best Picture # Best Director (Spike Lee) # Best Actor (Delroy Lindo) # Best Original Screenplay (Lee & co.) # Best Original Score (T. Blanchard) Maybe Best Editing, although only the very favorites or truly undeniable can make in this category
Do you think it has a chance for nods in Cinematography, Production Design or Sound Mixing?September 25, 2020 at 11:09 am #1203734500
I don’t think they had a Best Director category that year for some reason.September 24, 2020 at 5:47 pm #1203732796
Remember when they nominated Eddie Murphy for Shrek? Lol I actually wonder how close he actually came to an Oscar nomination.
That was probably out of the question because I believe voice-over performances are disqualified but I do miss the BAFTAs’ eccentricities.
