I don’t know if it will smash the box office, but I’m practically convinced it will do well.
It is really ironic how people were laughing at this remake saying it would be terrible and it became a REAL Oscar player. It teaches us we shouldn’t judge before the trial.August 2, 2018 at 11:53 am #1202601402
I think Lena Headey is the one from the GoT ensemble who deserves it the most. Dinklage having 3 and Lena Headey having 0 would be too unrealistic, because she is the real MVP of the series.August 2, 2018 at 9:59 am #1202601341
I will cry hardly if Headey doesn’t get what she deserves.August 2, 2018 at 9:52 am #1202601326
I voted for Nikolaj because he had more things to do in the latest seasons than Dinklage.August 2, 2018 at 9:49 am #1202601324
I’m hoping Lena Headey gets her overdue Emmy. I will not watch again if she doesn’t win.July 30, 2018 at 2:28 pm #1202598897
I would have snubbed Emma Thompson.July 28, 2018 at 5:24 am #1202597377
I think the only sure thing in Best Picture is BlacKKKlansman. Black Panther could be nominated, too. Let’s not forget it is (shockingly) one of the most acclaimed films of the year. I would find it atrocious but… we know what the Academy has become in the last years…
In Best Director, I’d say the same thing. Spike Lee seems to be the only lock right now (and he’s not that much of a lock). I’m seeing very good first impressions of A Star Is Born but I find difficult the Academy nominating Cooper as director. And also, Ryan Coogler could be nominated if the Academy is passionate about Black Panther.
In the acting categories I’m seeing Glenn Close could snatch her overdue Oscar but, unlike most people around here, I find Lady Gaga a serious threat to her because that is the kind of role the Academy loves to praise. I’d love Toni Collette’s over the top performance to be nominated at the Academy because that’s a great horror movie performance.
I’d also love Timothee Chalamet winning in supporting (he deserved that Oscar for CMBYN).

Obsessed with Ali Larter, Idris Elba and Beyoncé is one of the best comedies I’ve ever seen.July 24, 2018 at 10:36 am #1202592819
“Although no one is officially confirming it, we have been told the festival will screen the Warner Bros movie out of competition as a world premiere on Friday, August 31. […] The first screening of the film, which marks Cooper’s directorial debut and in which he co-wrote and co-stars with Lady Gaga, was actually held by Warner Bros for exhibitors Wednesday at the state-of-the-art Dolby Screening Room at Hollywood and Vine. Reaction from top exhibs was through the roof, at least those I heard from. One major theater owner predicted Oscar nominations across the board including Picture, Director, Actor and Actress, and big box office when it opens October 5.”
Well, so it will be good at the end.July 22, 2018 at 12:13 pm #1202591755

I don’t see Stone and Weisz getting recognition for this. Colman seems to have a meaty role but the Academy hasn’t nominated a Lanthimos performer yet, so…June 7, 2018 at 11:53 am #1202560488
Sorry but Claire Foy doesn’t resemble Lisbeth Salander at all. I would’ve loved Mara again, but if she had to be replaced, I thought Fede Alvarez’s frequent collaborator Jane Levy was a better option for the role.June 7, 2018 at 11:44 am #1202560485
I agree with the general consensus. It was a very good trailer and Bradley and Gaga sounded pretty well together. It will be nominated at the Globes for sure. If it is critically acclaimed it could earn some Oscar nods, but it would be difficult for a remake to gain a Best Picture mention. I’m excited about seeing how this movie which was predicted to be horrible ends being a good surprise. The haters that are slightly attacking the movie without even watching the trailer will have to chill out and stop judging it based on prejudices. By far, everything about “A Star Is Born” seems to be on the right way. Let’s see what the future holds.
