Ana got an Oscar nom while the film and its director got Razzie noms. Ouch!January 24, 2023 at 11:17 am #1205263976
Riseborough came out of nowhere and most actresses are supporting her (which some of them are probably voters in Best Actress). What gives?January 10, 2023 at 7:30 pm #1205233381
People. Are just mad. That a male director won
Yeah, right. Cameron and Daniels are both females.ReplyJanuary 10, 2023 at 7:25 pm #1205233329
Steven Spielberg has finally won a BD Golden Globe for the wrong film.ReplyDecember 21, 2022 at 6:55 pm #1205205466
This is probably what happens when EEAAO’S VFX was done about 9 people instead of about 9 companies.ReplyDecember 20, 2022 at 8:25 pm #1205203526
Maybe if Turning Red was widely released theatrically, it will pretty eat up all industry awards for animation, unless Academy is still stuck up with “only Disney will win Animated Feature because they’re designed for kids” mindset.December 20, 2022 at 8:16 pm #1205203520
As much as I love Spielberg, it would be so f**ked up if he wins BD this year. I think Original Screenplay will be his strongest suit unless they went all in for Banshees.December 20, 2022 at 6:05 pm #1205203369
This year is more of a battle between Titans than next year will be LOL. Ridley Scott has been abysmal for years. Napoleon will be no different. Nolan’s Genius stopped after Inception. He got lucky with Dunkirk. I doubt that repeats with whatever the hell Oppenheimer is. It’s likely on some Tenant Vibes. Marty is Marty. That’s a given. Dennis Villanueva…. Doubt it. Didn’t happen for Dune, why would it happen for Part 2?
You probably forgot to watch Interstellar.December 20, 2022 at 5:56 pm #1205203358
Avatar 2 wouldn’t get in for Screenplay, but I wouldn’t mind to put Cameron in no. 2 after Daniels. BD loves technical achievements and this one is no exception (sometimes I can’t pinpoint which ones are CGI and which aren’t) but to be honest, that 3 hour runtime isn’t well-earned enough.December 17, 2022 at 7:15 pm #1205199383
Maverick winning Cinematography isn’t bad considering that it has one of the best aerial photographies that I’ve seen.ReplyDecember 17, 2022 at 7:03 pm #1205199375
I am genuinely puzzled that The Fabelmans is in first place in four categories: BP (I expect that to change within a month or so), Best Director, Best Cinematography (huh? Why? The camerawork is fine but there are so many better choices they could make and TF is not top five), and Best Score (is this because it’s John Williams? I genuinely do not understand this one at all! Why is The Woman King’s phenomenal one of a kind score not really in the conversation? A lack of name recognition for Terence Blanchard? TWK has the best score of the year imo). I think the movie will wind up empty-handed on Oscar night. I enjoyed the movie but it’s definitely not top five in any of those four categories.
They probably have mistaken it for West Side Story, which I think was more deserving to win (especially for Director and Cinematography) than The Fabelmans.December 17, 2022 at 8:52 am #1205198809
everyone’s loving Banshees and throwing nominations at it left and right. However, they may rather give original screenplay to EEAAO, so why not give Director to McDonagh? If it’s a Top 3 BP Contender, some people may say “well he deserves It and its been a long time coming”. He stands a better chance than The Daniels imo.
Or maybe Director for Daniels and Original Screenplay for McDonagh. EEAAO might find confusing for some whereas Banshees is dialogue-heavy, the type where the voters are often going for.December 16, 2022 at 5:26 am #1205197317
Avatar 2 was amazing. It’s my favorite film of the year and Cameron is coming for that nominations. I loved the vibrant look of the whole world and I believe the way Speilberg directed the actors this time around is stronger. It’s a directorial achievement of high magnitude and I can see Speilberg losing at DGA at LEAST.
Spielberg would have won for West Side Story if it weren’t for being a late breaker. This is not his year, I think.December 16, 2022 at 5:24 am #1205197313
There’s no way James Cameron is not nominated for this technical masterpiece. Avatar 2 is simply one of the best movie of the year easily.
I would place Cameron on Top 2 after Daniels.December 15, 2022 at 8:32 pm #1205197115
Another thing to consider about Banshees and Everything Everywhere: they are competitive for wins in all 4 acting categories! Farrell, Gleeson, Keoghan and Condon are all contenders, as are Yeoh, Quan, Curtis and Hsu! This is unprecedented and something to consider! (Competitive does not mean will win, just they have a strong chance of winning). None of the other top BP contenders have that going for them.
I’m not pretty sure if Farrell would win since there’s Brendan Fraser. Farrell has the critics but The Whale seems to be an acting showcase for Fraser and voters often love that. I’m not saying Banshees isn’t but I think it’s more of an ensemble thing.Not now
