Does anyone think The Card Counter has a shot? Paul Schrader tends to shoot and edit fast (for better or worse), and I can see it be ready for this Oscars. I think Oscar Isaac and Willem Dafoe could get Oscar noms, with Willem possibly winning (provided he has a meaty role- though, then again, Laura Dern won an Oscar for 10-15 minutes of…[Read more]

Finding Dory says hi, unless you’re referring to it not being nominated as opposed to being released overall.
I think Connected will hearken way too much to Spider-Verse, at least based on the trailer- I’m also getting The Croods vibes. I’m cautiously optimistic right now.

1) I think it’s the best in the lineup this year. It was just amazing- the pieces just landed for me. I never felt like I was watching a 3.5 hour movie.
2) It’s a tad better than Goodfellas. I was unsatisfied with the ending for that film- the main character was way too unlikeable for me to enjoy his success in getting witness…[Read more]
I’m teeter tottering between Toy Story 4, Klaus, and HTTYD 3 for Animated Feature. Toy Story 4 won CC and PGA, but Klaus shocked with BAFTA and Annies. Not to mention, there has yet to be a film franchise that has more than one film win (though Toy Story is the golden boy when it comes to animated franchises, so that could change). Last year,…[Read more]

Aagaash Pathmathevan replied to the topic If there is a Sound Mixing/Editing split, who wins what? in the forum Movies 8 months, 3 weeks ago
I hope it’s just rumors. They’re different-one is about how individual sounds fit the narrative and enhance the experience, while the other is combining them.
Best Cinematography: 1917
Best Film Editing: The Irishman (No way they are letting The Irishman leave without a win. Also, Thelma Schoonmaker. Enough said).

Best Production Design: Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood
Best Makeup & Hairstyling: Bombshell
Best Sound Editing: 1917

Best Animated Feature is extremely hard to predict this year. Missing Link pulled a Golden Globe win right out of nowhere, Klaus got so much love at the Annies (not to mention a TON of passion from fans everywhere- personally, I find it slightly overrated), Toy Story 4 is the Disney favorite and won CC and PGA, and How To Train Your Dragon: The…[Read more]
Shirley is getting buzz from Sundance, especially for Elisabeth Moss. What do we think of her chances? (Odessa Young is getting recognition as well, but I don’t think she’s made enough of a name yet, but we’ll see. It also looks like Michael Stuhlbarg and Logan Lerman don’t have much of a chance).
I’m going to be very honest- none of them deserved nominations. Finding Dory was good, but it wasn’t as good as the nominees that year (it WAS a competitive year). Cars 3 and The Good Dinosaur was fine, but not superb. Cars 2 and Monsters University are undeserved no matter the year.
I wonder if Benedict Cumberbatch will push Louis Wain or Ironbark more. Louis Wain seems to be the more Oscar friendly project, but it will have to depend on reviews. I have a feeling he will win this year.
