Oh, it is stacked. I spent the last two weekends catching up on my doc viewing (“The Great Hack”, “One Child Nation”, “Knock Down the House”, etc.) and the only doc I had seen at that point made it into the Oscar race was “American Factory”. After seeing “For Sama” I am up to two Oscar nominees.

On your recommendation I watched this last night on YouTube and it was as good as you said.
It is not very long and widely available so I would highly recommend it for some last minute Goldderby Award viewing.

Since there are so many films ahead of “Little Women” in likelihood of taking best picture my top priority is that Greta Gerwig win best adapted screenplay.
Also, even though I think Joaquin Phoenix is far ahead for best actor I really want Adam Driver to win best actor as I believe he is the most exciting actor working right now.
BEST PICTURE: Little Women
ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE: Florence Pugh – Little Women
ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE: Tom Hanks – A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood
INTERNATIONAL FILM: Parasite

Even being in two different categories can lead to vote splitting but it far more often leads to winning in at least one. Examples would include Holly Hunter, Jamie Foxx, Teresa Wright, Fay Bainter, Jessica Lange, Al Pacino, Barry Fitzgerald (nominated in both supporting and lead for the same film), etc.
pacinofan replied to the topic If you could wish ONE nomination into happening Monday, what would you wish? in the forum Movies 1 week, 2 days ago
My top wish would be “Little Women” making it into the best picture race, and I am taking a bonus wish that Florence Pugh gets nominated for the film.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
I Lost My Body
The Two Popes
Us (falls aparts the more you think about it)
The Irishman (I like it but it takes a long time to get going and it is far from Robert DeNiro’s best work)
And even though I loved “Marriage Story” I did not feel Laura Dern was the highlight of the film and find her performance…[Read more]
