Wow this thread flopped since this movie won People’s Choice. JoJo is still in the game.September 9, 2019 at 12:59 pm #1203065955
Oddly enough this seemed to be a huge hit to everyone but the critics. The audience ate this one up. The reviews will go up. I’m keeping this a contender.August 21, 2019 at 3:06 pm #1203033908
Just checked the odds here and they’re honestly laughable.August 14, 2019 at 6:48 pm #1203024325
You guys here on Goldderby are calling it best film ever with your reactions. You guys gave it dedicated slots in every possible category. You all dislike Harriet but are praising this boring costume stuff with a very poor trailer because it’s from a white woman.
This is straight-up misogynistic. Stick to your Tarantino/Nolan dudebro flicks.August 13, 2019 at 10:24 pm #1203023049
Saying that this isn’t going to be nominated across the board comes across as delusional. This is a lock for best picture. Beloved American classic with a female writer/director and a stacked cast with a major company behind it. Sounds like you’ve got personal issues with successful women.August 13, 2019 at 5:19 pm #1203022705
I think Ronan is a very serious contender and I feel that Little Women is definitely Sony’s main push except for Hollywood. ABDITN doesn’t look like anything special and looks to be this year’s biopic Oscar bait that gets an acting nom and a screenplay nom, but nothing else, if even that.
Also, 1917 isn’t going to any festivals and everyone seems to think that’s a lock. Don’t know why Little Women wouldn’t be the same.August 13, 2019 at 3:50 pm #1203022506
What makes this look so fresh and fun is how anachronistic it looks. Timothee feeling modern might actually be a good thing.
This has become a super strong year for comedies between this, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, JoJo Rabbit, and The Farewell.August 13, 2019 at 12:14 pm #1203022177
Love all the filmbros coming out of the woodwork to deride this… and based on what? Because you didn’t like a woman gaining a whole bunch of awards attention for an awards-magnet a couple years back? Hate to break it to you, but that’s the same story for your favorite directors, too. Stay angry that Gerwig got her first director nomination at the same time Nolan did, and that she’s better than he’ll ever be.
100% agree with this. I couldn’t help but feel that the hate towards Gerwig comes from subconscious misogyny.
I think this looks great. Ronan and Pugh look like standouts. It looks relevant, fun, and beautiful. I think this’ll be great and be a phenomenal companion piece to Lady Bird.
I think this’ll get nominated for:
Best Actress- Saoirse Ronan
Best Supporting Actress- Florence Pugh
Best Adapted Screenplay
Maybe even Gerwig for director.August 9, 2019 at 12:59 pm #1203017726
Ugh, I’m already annoyed that Zhao Shuzhen is getting all the attention that Diana Lin should be getting from that film. Also, it’s Zhao Shuzhen, but Americans freak out anytime someone dares to challenge the given-name-then-surname cadence, so they’ll switch Asian peoples’ names (hence some publications, and the ever-shitty IMDb, need to call her Shuzhen Zhao).
I so disagree with this. Diana Lin is really great, but Zhao Shuzhen gives the standout performance in that movie. I think it’s an Oscar winning performance. She’s funny, warm, and tragic.August 9, 2019 at 11:27 am #1203017593
I was going to go see this on $5 tuesday at AMC, but I’m wondering if this’ll be too painful to sit through. Anyone seen it yet?August 7, 2019 at 11:02 pm #1203015230
An Asian woman hasn’t won an Oscar in over 60 years. With the possibility of two Asian women being nominated (Awkwafina and Shuzhen), I think there will be a huge push to award an Asian woman this year, and I think a supporting actress win is more likely than Awkwafina winning for lead.August 7, 2019 at 4:56 pm #1203014956
You guys learned nothing from Sam Rockwell last year. And for the record I think Margot has the performance.
Sam Rockwell had more to do than Robbie does here. She just kind of smiles and dances around for the whole movie. She doesn’t even get an arc. Rockwell at least had something.
