Well it was a joke but I’m sorry but literally whenever someone talks about Sound of Metal, Promising Young Woman, Pieces of a Woman, The Father or any indie film doing well you literally get berserk at them because you think they’re going to threaten your favourites in categories like acting. Weird ikr.
We know you aren’t joking because this isn’t the first time you made an off the wall prediction on these forums. Also, I have nothing against indie films and the fact that you’re trying to claim I do is just weird. I’m personally rooting for Mulligan to win in actress, but I have enough common sense to not predict her for the win even though she is one of my favs.December 2, 2020 at 1:50 pm #1203890237
The way I suggested this the other day and people like David called me delusional. We been knew.
Because you have to be delusional if you think Ahmed has a chance at beating both Boseman and Hopkins when his film isn’t even a bp contender and he didn’t even receive nearly the same type of reviews as those two received…December 2, 2020 at 1:45 pm #1203890221

I have Judas actually winning best picture currently but I have to be completely honest and say that I’ve based that on almost nothing more than a gut feeling. I mean it’s topical, both leads (whoever is lead) might end up being acting nominees, it looks showy where it needs to be. Something about Nomadland seems too easy to me and historically front runners on this site don’t seem to actually win when it comes to picture.
On a separate note, I think things like The Father, Chicago 7 and One Night in Miami are sleepers.
Those are not sleepers… Also, The Father and One Night are not winning.December 1, 2020 at 12:32 pm #1203887667
I’m predicting both to get in, but Kirby is more vulnerable to a snub than McDormand is…November 30, 2020 at 4:26 pm #1203885667
I’m sorry but how is it weird and totally inaccurate.
Ford V Ferrari
- Baity characters and baity story.
- Led by Academy award winner Christian Bale and Academy award nominee (acting) Matt Damon
- Directed by Academy Award nominee James Mangold (freshly coming off of ‘Logan’)
- Made 225.5 M at the box office
- Had a significant amount of buzz surrounding the film and was released in November which is the primetime release date for contenders in awards season (in a normal year).
- I could keep going on…

- Was released in February…
- Made 25m at the box office
- Led by Anya Taylor-Joy
Comparing Emma’s trajectory to FvF is weird and totally inaccurate in so many ways. In no way is ‘Emma’ “slipping” into picture and Anya is not getting nominated anywhere for it either. Just another off the wall prediction.November 30, 2020 at 2:53 pm #1203885497
And Lakeith Stanfield risesNovember 30, 2020 at 1:24 pm #1203885276
I’m pretty sure I provided the source last week when the news was first announced.
“Paul Greengrass’ “News of the World” and Shaka King’s “Judas and the Black Messiah” have been seen by very few journalists, but have been confirmed to be submitted.” from Variety
