Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris will be released in March 2022.
So that leaves Belfast, Last Night in Soho and The Northman. One of those will be Focus’ main push (if not two like when they had Darkest Hour and Phantom Thread, maybe Last Night in Soho and The Northman?)
I think Belfast will flop. I don’t trust Kenneth Branagh.May 11, 2021 at 1:12 pm #1204251092
I actually think the Blonde being a Netflix film really hurts Ana de Armas chances of winning. Biopics are those type of films that play best in theaters since they are typically crowdpleasers and make a lot of money. The Theory of Everything, The Darkest Hour, and even The Iron Lady made more than $100 million. Biopics just draw the general public in to pay to see them in theaters by an overwhelming margin. These type of films attract the older bunch of the Academy the most and they are still very much against streaming services over theatrical run films. All of those biopics were by the numbers too that the older Academy ate.. And we all know about Blonde’s experimental features based on early reactions from the screenplay.
Agreed. That reminds me I, Tonya was an unconventional biopic that almost went to Netflix but the producers preferred a theatrical studio so it went to Neon.May 10, 2021 at 8:31 pm #1204250283
Not having black members and not recognizing enough people of color was the least of their problems tbh because other awards shows do the same. The biggest problem is that the HFPA is a corrupt institution that’s simply not worth having the influence they have.May 10, 2021 at 5:50 pm #1204250075
DOR film will be mediocre and flop hard.May 10, 2021 at 12:53 pm #1204249546
At best, the winners next year will be announced in a press conference like in 2008. The Golden Globes will be as much relevant and visible as a regional critics award.May 10, 2021 at 11:14 am #1204249350
Agree with many here that Bradley Cooper only deserved to be nominated for ASIB, for which he also should’ve won.May 8, 2021 at 9:26 pm #1204247626
Ass kissing is what moves awards shows and the HFPA is getting canceled for that exact reason. This couldn’t be more ironic. The boycott from studios and celebrities mean nothing as long as they don’t advocate for a change in the current awards campaigning model.May 7, 2021 at 7:34 pm #1204246440
“Netflix has declared that they will not be working with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (who organize the Golden Globes) until ‘until more meaningful changes are made.’”
LOL the same studio that invited several HFPA members to a luxury set visit of Emily in Paris just to buy nominations.
It’s funny to see liberal Hollywood pretending they didn’t know anything about the HFPA.May 7, 2021 at 11:52 am #1204246096
Campaign is not necessary when you’re a veteran in a widely seen BP nominee or your performance is undeniable.
People like Andra Day and Vanessa Kirby wouldn’t have been nominated if they hadn’t campaigned a lot.May 7, 2021 at 11:35 am #1204246087
Bleecker Street acquired the US rights to Mass. Deadline says a fourth quarter theatrical release is planned: https://deadline.com/2021/05/bleecker-street-picks-up-sundance-film-festival-jason-isaacs-feature-mass-1234751951/
Bye bye Ann Dowd chances :/
George Ehret anticipated this.May 5, 2021 at 8:27 pm #1204244252
Even if Mulligan was nominated at BAFTA and won (which I do think would have happened because why else did PYW win British Film over The Father), McDormand still would have won.
I really think Frances would still have won BAFTA if Mulligan was nominated. PYW winning British Film is no evidence Mulligan would’ve won there. The Original Screenplay + British Film combo was perfectly possible. Frances would still have won with BAFTA only just like Hopkins. BAFTA predicted Cottilard and Colman upsets. They’d still have predicted McDormand without the jury.May 5, 2021 at 7:03 pm #1204244177
Verhoeven is simply not happening. The Academy will never nominate a lesbian erotic film about nuns lol.
