Reactions for The Father from Sundance are out and seems likely to lead to nominations for Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman (with Hopkins having a very healthy chance to win). Film likened to British AMOUR.
Reactions are outstanding. I’m really looking forward to see this. Hopkins is receiving a HUGE amount of acclaim. Olivia as well.
Just a question. Is Olivia lead or supporting?January 27, 2020 at 2:53 pm #1203315227
Why is it ridiculous?
Because Carol is a pure drama. A lesbian movie set in the 50’s. Promising Young Woman might be a drama but has a lot of dark comedy elements in it. The subject might look super dark but that doesn’t mean it’s a drama.January 27, 2020 at 9:36 am #1203314525
With the reviews for Promising Young Woman coming out of Sundance, I could see Mulligan being a critics’ award favorite. The release date, the subject matter, and the type of character doesn’t seem to be the kind of thing that big awards would feel comfortable nominating, but I expect Carey Mulligan to end up as a Florence Pugh/Toni Collette in terms of critical love and TONS of hype that doesn’t really end up going anywhere.
I was going to say the same thing. I could also see her getting a GG nomination for Best Actress Comedy/Musical.January 27, 2020 at 9:01 am #1203314462
So Close isn’t getting hype for Four Good Days post-Sundance showing. Is it still too early, or does this confirm that this performance won’t be a major player?
I think the reason for it is because the movie itself is not very good. It’s being overly compared to Beautiful Boy and Ben Is Back wich are very mediocre movies that rely purely on the performances. Out of the two (Glenn and Mila) Glenn is the one receiving the most praise but both are very equal. But I doubt any of the two receives any awards recognition for it.January 26, 2020 at 1:43 pm #1203307582
More importantly Netflix knows the potential of this film and I’m sure they are preparing it for the fall festivals. Glenn is definitely winning if her move is released on Nov.
Lets not get too excited! Yes. This is looking extremely good for Glenn and Amy but lets not push it. Lets keep our feet on the ground. I also want to see Glenn winning that golden statue next year. But i prefer to keep my expectations low for now…I don’t want to have another (bad) surprise!January 26, 2020 at 11:43 am #1203306667
« Glenn Close and Mila Kunis give masterful, Oscar worthy performances in the devastating drama Four Good Days. Reminiscent of works by Bergman, Garcia deftly transcends a familiar story with a sharp script and many cinematic touches that makes this a must see film »
Unfortunately i don’t think Four Good Days will go far in the Oscar race. But i think it will definitely help Glenn. The movie is being compared with Beautiful Boy and Ben Is Back wich is a shame. But her performance is being hugely lauded so if Hillbilly Elegy is really good then i think Glenn can definitely benefit from having two masterful performances.January 26, 2020 at 7:36 am #1203305923
3. Jojo Rabbit
4. Marriage Story
5. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
6. Ford v Ferrari
7. The Irishman
I have yet to see 1917 and Little WomenJanuary 25, 2020 at 7:35 pm #1203304953
According to some early twitter reactions Four Good Days is solid and both Glenn and Mila are fantastic (especially Glenn). It seems the movie focus more on Glenn’s character rather than Mila’s. I think she’s lead and Mila supporting. But i’m waiting for more reactions before i start making any kind of predictions.January 24, 2020 at 1:33 pm #1203302789
Poor Glenn Close. She’ll never win: Berlin Film Festival To Open With ‘My Salinger Year’ Starring Sigourney Weaver & Margaret Qualley
Sigourney Weaver is in it to win it. Ans she’s actually very liked and respected in Tinsletown. So if it’s between those two, Glenn Close is screwed.
The description of the movie gave me major The Devil Wears Prada vibes. Let’s just wait for the movie to premiere before we jump into conclusions. Like somebody else said Sigourney hasn’t been nominated for an Oscar since 80’s. Glenn also has two baity roles coming out and that helps a lot.January 19, 2020 at 7:50 pm #1203293902
I do find TC to be a bit overhyped at this point, which IMO has manifested in the way many have perceived this season. Anyway, I’m just venting. Instant reactions of mine should never be taken seriously. But I should be allowed to say if I don’t think it deserved to win. People spit on so many shows here all the time, so TC should be held to the same standard. But it’s just an award anyway, so let’s not get worked up about it (note to myself, too).
I feel you. But the way you expressed yourself seemed like The Crown was one of the worst winners possible. And that’s just not true. It’s an incredible cast. I understand you preferred BLL, GoT and THT but the truth is that they received worst reviews than The Crown season 3. And that is saying much considering this season was a huge let down.January 19, 2020 at 7:37 pm #1203293846
They had the opportunity to have the entire BLL cast on stage, or bid farewell to Game of Thrones, or have the fierce Handmaid’s cast on stage, but they chose the Crown? Really? Sorry, I know you all stan that show, but it’s so overhyped at this point that I can barely even root for it anymore.
Overhyped?! Cmon… I really really like you Luca but this comment was a bit arrogant. This win for ensemble was like only the second award the show has won this awards season. The performances in it are absolutely outstanding and like someone already said this season felt truly ensemble-ish. And apart from Stranger Things, all the shows in contention for ensemble were competing for their worst season. The Crown deserved it. Period. All of the shows deserved it really. This was also their first win for ensemble. Be a bit nice.
