PTA: Phantom Thread
Everybody was betting on Martin McDonaughFebruary 25, 2020 at 11:38 am #1203360138
Lol so much The Master supposedly being re appreciated.January 23, 2020 at 7:49 am #1203300113
For everyone betting on The Last Thing He Wanted you better hope they just didn’t know how to cut a better trailer.January 14, 2020 at 1:09 pm #1203284368
I am here for Billie Eilish Oscar winnerJanuary 9, 2020 at 3:53 pm #1203272919
Lot of well known directors never win Oscars. Paul Thomas Anderson will never win one for directing and I doubt writing as well.December 28, 2019 at 1:26 pm #1203252699
I like Marriage Story a lot and more than Joker but even I would nominate Phillips over Baumbach for director.December 25, 2019 at 4:15 pm #1203250066
At this point of the awards season, all we could do is say the same things. Until more stuff hits on January. With that said, more time has passed since I watched Marriage Story and Joker. I think Driver will and should win. In a better world, Eddie Murphy and the guy from Richard Jewell will get nominated, with Leo DiCap being the fifth nominee. Sorry Taron.
Driver will win. He is likable and has a film that all actors love and love him in. Phoenix is polarizing. Driver couldn’t have a more easy path.December 25, 2019 at 10:23 am #1203249828
Adam Driver is winning best actor not Phoenix. Don’t the Academy members hate Joker with a passion.December 20, 2019 at 9:21 am #1203245390
There is no way PTA’s film comes out 2020 if shooting was pushed to summer. I’m predicting Cannes 2021
Also I am having a good laugh about the last Thing He Wanted. I do love Dee respect but I couldn’t be more skeptical.December 15, 2019 at 4:12 pm #1203238729
Yeah i won’t be supporting The Irishman at all this season, got to the half of it and i refuse to finish it, i just don’t understand mafia movies, i don’t even understand the existance of mafias, to me it’s the same story of a bunch of white males that enjoy money, cigarettes and guns because it’s fun and that’s it, there is nothing else with the subject. Trying to “review” it properly i can definitely say that it is an inaccessible movie, which is valid because not every movie has to be easy, but it is something that people can bring up about it, it’s very slow and not interesting enough, Robert De Niro and the CGI never looked under 50, i don’t even know what age he was supposed to look like as he always looked old, and the character was just plain, Al Pacino on the other hand i really enjoyed, he was fun to watch. I don’t see this winning BP, i feel like what wins Best Picture has to be kinda easier to watch, but i may win because it is very traditional and can get the old men votes.
While I didn’t love Irishman ( I enjoyed it) I never thought I would inaccessible used to describe. its not some sort of difficult art film. If you have ever seen a Scorsese gangster film or The Sorpranos almost all the beats are pretty familiar.December 14, 2019 at 4:26 pm #1203236379
I think Joaquin and Driver are both excellent and they are my favorite male performances of the year next to Antonio Banderas for Pain And Glory. I still think Driver is getting it. The actors love Marriage Story, they love Driver, andi still can’t get a read on how the Academy feels for jokerDecember 12, 2019 at 4:21 pm #1203234216
At this moment in 2017, Phantom Thread was doing well with critic awards while LW is barely making a dent so not really.
Was Phantom Thread doing well in the race at this point? I just remember no Oscar pundits outright dismissing it for anything outside of actor and costumesDecember 1, 2019 at 3:57 pm #1203210848
No chance for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune? It’s a summer release, like Fury Road. It’s his third sci fi film after Arrival and Blade Runner. If they get it right, and Denis can do this, think it can perform as well as Fury Road and win a bunch of tech awards? Even challenge for cinematography, adapted screenplay and Director/Picture?
While I’m not skeptical about Denis I am skeptical about Dune regarding awards chances. To be fair it might be because I have never gotten the love for Dune as everyone else but if they didn’t go for Blade Runner I don’t know if they’ll go for this.December 1, 2019 at 3:31 pm #1203210829
Bong is winning best director.
I am not bothering with Uncut Gems. I found Good Time aggressively annoying so I don’t think I can sit through this.December 1, 2019 at 3:17 pm #1203210819
I wonder if the low budget PTA high school movie actually starts in February? And if does will he push the release to 2021.
As far as Killers of The Flower Moon I can see why one some people are skeptical. The book is amazing but also deeply angry, very sad, and has little in the sense of justice for the people who were wronged. May not be to Oscars taste.
I’m going to go ahead and predict Tenet for a lot.
