So Dear Evan Hansen is awful, then? Don’t think I’ve seen a single positive review out of TIFF yet (there probably are some I’ve just missed them).

Hinds seems the most “safe” & that’s mostly because A, super respected character actor, but B, that category feels so empty. The rest, I mean… really what chance does Dench have if Balfe is in the mix? I’m already super tentative, and that’s just from the films seen & reviewed (so, not including Nightmare Alley/DLU!) If Balfe is in supporting, okay yeah maybe! But either way they’re at risk of missing a nod to upcoming contenders.
Someone said this in the Supp Actor thread but that category isn’t likely to actually be that empty – we just haven’t seen most of the contenders yet.September 8, 2021 at 2:29 pm #1204444962
And Comer has already confirmed to Variety that some scenes appear twice, with the same dialogue, played differently.
I had been wondering about this. Interesting that it’s confirmed and surely (again, provided it doesn’t just get trashed on release because of the subject matter) makes it an interesting proposition in acting categories too.
Intrigued how they’ll keep it moving though.September 3, 2021 at 11:53 am #1204434273
His review is well written and considered. Grow up – just because someone doesn’t like something you’re a fan of doesn’t mean they ‘deserve’ to be trolled by immature stans.September 3, 2021 at 9:50 am #1204433714
Reviews coming out for Dune. Some raves, some really not. We’ll see how it shakes out.September 3, 2021 at 9:39 am #1204433670
Exactly. A pretty locked down Best Actress race (and arguably a semi locked Supporting Actress frontrunner), means the Best Actor one just got a lot more interesting. Especially since most of the films with the actor performances in the race are still weeks/months away… Also if Gucci holds up as a film and Gaga is missing the win, then the Driver campaign which was potentially losing steam just got a massive boost.
Yeah for sure. Also Annette is out in the UK today and it’s getting really good reviews in the British press – HoG is going nowhere near BAFTA but it could be the one place Annette gets him in.September 3, 2021 at 6:58 am #1204432964
How reliable is he? One of the Telluride festival organizers (can’t remember who but I think her name is Jennifer) praised the film and said no one would think it was a directorial debut if they saw it.
A Telluride festival organiser would say that about a film playing in their festival.
He’s pretty reliable. But official reviews are still a few hours away.September 3, 2021 at 6:53 am #1204432952
The super-reliable pundit/programmer guy from AW says The Lost Daughter is the worst competition film he’s seen in any festival this year.August 28, 2021 at 1:27 pm #1204421357
If for whatever reason<i> The Humans</i> is a total trainwreck I think this category automatically defaults to Plemons vs Cooper. I’ve expressed my doubts for Cooper making it in Supporting but I could see him getting namechecked in this category making it easier for him to get a career win.
Maybe. But from what we know Safdie has the baitier role in that film.August 28, 2021 at 1:23 pm #1204421349
Also, incidentally, are we sure that Adam Driver isn’t gonna end up being this year’s Lakeith Stanfield for House of Gucci? I can certainly see that happening.
If you mean in terms of voters putting him in another category than the studio, perhaps. But someone who read the script said the movie is basically about his character so if he has a lot of screen time then no way – even if he doesn’t have as showy material as Gaga. And MGM will certainly not campaign him there as they will want to go for the most nominations possible (Driver Lead, Leto/Pacino Supporting). Plus he has a Supporting bid already with Duel.August 28, 2021 at 1:13 pm #1204421338
I just mean it in the sense that it seems like such a frontrunner but the movie is so bad and the reviews are so bad for it that there’s next to no hype for it.
Given that the film isn’t even finished yet so no one at all has seen it (and the trailer response was much more positive than the response for the Elegy trailer) that seems extremely premature.August 28, 2021 at 1:04 pm #1204421324
The Gucci–HE comparison feels very premature and a bit daft – obviously Gucci could easily flop but we’ve seen one short trailer that featured no actual scenes, and it’s a completely different movie than HE that will flop for different reasons.
If you’re using the metric ‘it had Oscar buzz and flopped’ then Respect is also the HE of the season.August 28, 2021 at 12:22 pm #1204421234
That’s fine. Maybe I’ll go into it another day.
So.. you didn’t discuss it yesterday (at least not overtly) and you’re not prepared to now. OK cool. Noted 🙂Not now
