ASIB couldn’t even win PGA. Bye, Felicia.
La La Land won:
Golden Globes’ Comedy/Musical
BAFTA’s Best Picture
Critics Choice’s Best Picture
Best Actress Oscar
And STILL lost Best Picture.
asib is definitely not the frontrunner anymore but I wouldn’t say it’s completely dead in the water. Wait until sag before we start nailing the coffin.
This years best picture race is all over the place, I sense rules will be broken.January 19, 2019 at 11:27 pm #1202740315
green book’s controversies probably cost it numerous #1 votes and consequently the old white male producer contingent put it in 2nd or 3rd. Because of the preferential ballot system that was enough to win.January 19, 2019 at 10:31 pm #1202740216
green book….what a joke honestly. Just proves my points about old white men producers polluting this award season. I hope at least the backlash by the time the oscars roll around will kill green books chances. A Star is Born or Roma could still take BP.January 19, 2019 at 4:44 pm #1202739815
i hope im wrong:
1. Bohemian Rhapsody
2. A Star Is Born
4. Green Book
6. Black Panther
7. Crazy Rich Asians
8. The Favourite
10. A Quiet PlaceJanuary 18, 2019 at 6:08 pm #1202739062
if bohemian rhapsody wins pga and sag ensemble is roma still our frontrunnerJanuary 18, 2019 at 5:05 pm #1202739007
does anyone know what time pga announces its winnersJanuary 17, 2019 at 9:18 pm #1202738184
So far, Cardi B, Janelle Monae, Kacey Musgraves, Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes, Dan + Shay, and Post Malone have been announced to perform. Obviously there are more performers going to be announced. Who else do you think will perform? Personally I think Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino, Drake, Travis Scott, Brandi Carlile, H.E.R., Chloe x Halle, and possibly The Carters will perform
LG and Cooper wouldn’t waste the spectacle of the Shallow duet before the oscars, so that’s out of the picture. And Bafta is on the same day as the Grammys so expect Cooper to turn up there instead. Hence I would love for LG to performance Always Remember Us This Way at the Grammy’s.January 17, 2019 at 9:14 pm #1202738176
imo James McAvoy is extremely overdue for his first oscar nomination.January 17, 2019 at 9:07 pm #1202738174
I was just curious about what other awards junkies were listening to or reading during awards season! I listen to podcasts at work and at lunch all the time and was wondering if there are other sources/journalists I could listen to. I prefer videos or podcasts but I would be interested in written material as well! I’m sure a lot of us listen to the same stuff, but it would be really cool if there were other good sources that I’m missing. Here are some of my favorites: – AwardsCircuit Podcast- Clayton Davis – Tom O Neil vs Oscar Expert Showdowns- Gold Derby videos – Next Best Picture Podcast- Matt Neglia – The AwardsWatch Forum – Collider FYC videos- Scott Mantz and Co. And of course GoldDerby’s forum literally all the time every day.
I literally listen, read and watch the exact same stuff as you!
In regards to podcasts I would say my favourite is by far TheNextBestPicture, Matt Neglia’s team are insightful, humourous and much more unbigoted than Sasha Stone’s AwardsDaily podcasts. I would also suggest Indiewire’s Awards Chatter podcast with Erik Kohn and Anne Thompson.
Collider’s videos are great also, I love hearing Perri’s insight and rumblings from industry members. The banter is always fun between Perri, Jeff and Scott.
I do usually enjoy Goldderby’s videos but some experts particularly in the most recent videos who I won’t name have tarnished the analysis for me. Insensitive, abhorrent tirades against Gaga and a distasteful sexual joke made by experts was just extremely unfair, uncomfortable and unprofessional. I was very disappointed. I enjoy that Goldderby’s team of experts hold strong views and opinions but that line had been crossed by some experts.
Awards Circuit and AwardsWatch is not particularly accurate and the latter’s forum is littered with trolls. I look forward to reading Sasha Stone’s written work as its the most informative and more unbiased that her podcasts. But nonetheless, its a little frustrating to read and hear her shit on everything other than first man or follow critics like a sheep with her film opinions.January 16, 2019 at 3:56 pm #1202736763
what are yall PGA predictions?
My frontrunners are:
A Star Is Born:
– BO hit and cultural phenomenon. Made over 11x its budget of $36 million
– R-rated yet was just $10 million shy of making the top 10 biggest domestic BO
– first time director, risky female lead, 4th remake that was critical acclaimed.
– middle ground choice between Bohemian Rhapsody and oscar-baity films
* but will producers who are mainly old white men vote for a musical love story???
– massive BO hit
– prolific producer: Graham King
– old white men- producers love Queen
* will its critical backlash hinder its win?
– mild BO hit
– would be a historical win for Spike
– big name producers: Jordan Peele, Spike Lee, Jason Blum,
* all male producers might make it an unattractive option.
Crazy Rich Asians:
– BO hit
– critical support
– important cultural touchstone for Asians
– Big producers: Nina Jacobsen, Brad Simpson.
* again will producers who are mainly old white men feel strongly compelled to vote for it over the other nominees?
– critical masterpiece
* are producers willing to embrace the Netflix model? Does Roma embody the idea of a producer’s film? Or is it just Cuaron’s passion project?
imo I think realistically it’s between asib, crazy rich asians, roma or blackklansman. Im predicting asib.
